I have been trying to find a designer who can chop+code the PSDs hyper6 made for me into fully responsive HTML5/CSS. Yea I have my own products now because I am sick and tired of CPA Networks shaving (*cough* technical errors *cough*) and/or advertisers scrubbing.
Unfortunately my company Banners&Landers doesn’t provide PSD2HTML service, only landers for affiliate marketers and their campaigns. So I begun my hunt on the usual places, oDesk, Twitter, Behance, etc etc.
I keep meeting designers that want either 400-600$ to code a single page from PSD to HTML/CSS, and say will take 2-3 weeks to do that, or I keep meeting people who want couple hundred and say they will deliver.
None of them give you a flat rate price before seeing what they have to chop up and code into HTML/CSS. You might agree and say OF COURSE THEY WON’T your page can be 10 pages in lenght, or really short so ……… YEA! That’s exactly it, the WRONG TRAIN OF THOUGHT.
You see, if a company would standardize PSD2HTML service and offer a flat rate, they could get VOLUME of orders. SURE some order they’d make little, on some they’d make a lot because these kind of things are various in size. But no, unfortunately most people weren’t blessed with a business sense, so they turn down a lot of work – instead of accepting everything, building a name for themselves, and thanks to volume after a couple months invested BANK consistently.
All right, rant off, back to work
