DO I NEED A FREELANCER?

It depends. There’s always an option to do it yourself using some free resources.

Or, if you have a big budget, you can hire an agency. The ultimate goal is to have your end result effectively communicate with your customers.

How well you accomplish it is the matter of your budget and skills.

But if you feel you may not be able to attend to this task and do not want to go the expensive road and hire a full-scale agency, freelance web designer is your best choice.

 

HOW DO I HIRE HOMERUNDESIGN?

It’s very simple – just contact me.

Let me know as much detail about your project as possible.

I will evaluate your needs and send you a quote.

That’s really it.

No hassle, no problems.

 

WHAT IS ‘CUSTOM DESIGN’?

It is an ORIGINAL design, meaning, it is uniquely designed ONLY for you.

This kind of design is the most expensive one, however it is tailored to your very specific needs and market/product.

 

WHAT IS ‘TEMPLATE MODIFICATION’?

It is a modification of an EXISTING template. The template can be provided by you, or by HomerunDesign. There is no guarantee that someone else does not use the same template for their web site too, however, regardless of the template, you can rest assured that it will be modified to meet your needs as much as possible. This is the best option for someone in a need of a web site, but with a limited budget.

 

I HAVE A DESIGN. CAN YOU MAKE IT INTO A WEB SITE?

Absolutely. If you already have a design for your web site but need a help to code it into a valid XHTML/CSS web site, HomerunDesign is the place to go for this type of service. HomerunDesign will ensure that your design will be transformed into a full-scale, valid web site, with no detail from your design omitted.

 

I KNOW XHTML AND CSS, BUT I AM NOT GOOD IN DESIGN. CAN YOU HELP?

No problem. HomerunDesign will provide you a layered Photoshop design, fully based on your input and needs. You will be able to easily slice it and code it into a valid web site.

 

DO YOU WORK PRO BONO?

No. Do you? OK, if you are a non-profit, I will be happy to help, maybe even for free. But that depends on my workload, as well as your project.

 

WHAT’S UP WITH YOUR PRICES? A STUDENT I KNOW DOES ALL YOU DO FOR A SIX-PACK!

Well, just make sure he’s legal to drink. And please, ask him to keep all original files, so I can charge you less when you come back to have your project re-done right.

 

DO YOU OUTSOURCE?

Occasionally there may be a need for hiring an extra help, should your project be too complex, too rush, or need some elements that will require a specialist. If such situation comes up, you will be fully informed, the quality of work will not suffer and in no way will you be charged more. Still, I am careful to take only project I am able to finish by myself and within the agreed time, so outsourcing is more of a theoretical situation, than a practical one.

 

DO YOU OFFER PRINTING SERVICES?

At this moment, I do not. However all designs I do for printing are print-ready, so any commercial printer will be able to print your project easily and fast.

 

CAN I CONTACT YOU TO SOLICIT MY SERVICES?

I always welcome opportunity to build a network of professionals around me. But please do not contact me to sell your services or products. And please, use the email or the contact form . No phone calls please!

 

DO YOU OFFER WEB HOSTING AND DOMAIN REGISTRATION?

Yes, I can host your website, or help you get your hosting elsewhere. I can also help you with your domain registration. Help with domain registration and hosting set up (with a 3rd party provider) is included in any web project, free of charge (please note that you will still be charged by the hosting provider and domain registrar). Should you choose to have your website hosted on my server, the price is only $60/year. Compare this to the costly and complex solution of hosting that you would find though DotBlock.

 

CAN WE MEET?

Absolutely! If you live in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Clarks Summit or Carbondale areas, a personal meeting will not be a problem! I do not charge for the initial and final meetings, but please note that personal meetings, once the project starts, will be charged according the distance and time.

 

DO YOU DO VIDEO EDITING?

No, I am not an expert in video editing field, and therefore I do not offer any such services.

 

DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?

Yes, after an agreement is reached for the price and deadline, I require a 25% deposit. This deposit is refundable under some circumstances, which will be discussed in detail during the initial meeting or conversation.

 

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLAN?

After the initial deposit is made and work starts, I require 25% deposits after certain milestones during the project. After the project is finished and approved by the client, I require the reminder of the payment before the final product is handed to the client.

 

DO YOU OFFER PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES?

No, I am not a photographer. However, I would be more than happy to help you with photography re-touching, photo montages or other photo manipulations.

 

I STILL HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS!
