>I'm looking for tips on submitting a bid for freelance work ...
And for G*d's sake, don't think you have to be the cheapest to get the job!~
When I need a contractor, I look for:
#1 dependabilty
#2 capability
The cost of paying $10-$20 an hour more for an experienced, solid type who I
know will not let me down and will put in the effort that it takes to do the
job is PEANUTS.
What your client wants is PEACE OF MIND. My greatest tip - I can't believe
I'm giving this away! He/she's got a deadline? So what do they want? :
peace of mind. The feeling that "it's going to be all right." Their
particular b*tt is riding on whether or not the project gets done. Got a
difficult job? What do they want? Peace of mind: the ability to say,
"sure, we can do that."
So, if you have a potential client who's looking for a low-baller -
fuggedaboudit! You don't need that kind of work.
