Since I've been freelancing I have found out many clients think you have to lower your price just because the economy is down.
ex. I had a client who needed a website with 9 pages and I agreed to do the work for $300 and he said I only have $50. I'm not going to take the time to create a mockup then code the entire project for $50.
Have you experience a such thing?
How do you charge your clients?
Do you work for cheap?
I am not really a pro like you'll at designing and coding.
I just create websites for clients and generally outsource.
I too have come across people who bargain for the price but I never reduce the rate. I don't have clients all the time as there are guys who are much much cheaper than me, yet there are some people out there who are willing to pay for good work.
TBH, The economy sure has had an impact.
As a buyer it surely has affected me.
As a 14 year-old without a business, I don't really feel the effects the recession - sure, my investments are down almost 20%, but I don't own a business, so I can't relate to a buyer.
