OK I am for the first time looking into Odesk and I'm creating a profile. One of the first question I come to is what do I charge? I'm never sure where to go with this one. I've been in the IT field for many year. When doing contract work as systems and network support I always charged between $95 and $125 an hour. On the other hand when doing the same work as an employee the going rate seems to be around $35/hr. Now obviously this is different work than web design or graphics. While I have been working with web design and graphics for years it has always been for my own sites and my own projects. I know years ago I used to do graphics for t-shirt screen printing and for that work I would charge $35/hr. Just off hand I'm thinking this may be a suitable hourly rate for both graphics and web design/ site creation layout and design.
Would appreciate any thoughts on this. Anyone's personal experience.
I understand that some of you may think I'm splitting hairs or trying to make marketing more complex than it needs to be. I accept that criticism and suggest this concept may not be important to your marketing ... yet.
But I believe there will come a time if you stay with online marketing that you will recognize just how powerful this simple truth really is and begin using it to help bolster your conversions.
It is a long time coming, but finally, I have the time to write a question here. Days and nights I tried to search the forum for any clarification, but couldn't find anything that will at least give me a partial answer.
On March 9th, San Diego is about to invaded by thousands of marketers and entrepreneurs for one of the largest events that will be held this year.
And as always, were gonna throw one hell of a party for it!
When I googled the address of my new blog, this is how it appears. I did just create it but I don't think it should look like this. How do I change the meta data to read appropriately instead of what it currently says?
It appears that on Feb 7th Google rolled out an algorithm update. I've seen a ton of SERP fluctuation since that date. While I have my suspicions as to what is driving it, I want to reach out and ask other SEO people out there what they think is the driving force behind this algorithm update?
