    Your Do not have to read the following

    I was just looking up for a picture of a cup on google, and i found this one made by zrmultimedia.com, i seen it was multimedia site and i went in, he lived in barwon heads and NEAR me! he also does webdesigns and everything, i gave him an email a link to my site and bang he emailed me back with his number and I gave him mine, this morning he calls me up and he says "Im getting a little more work then I can handle, can you give me a hand here?", I said "sure thing mate" He then said "Well if you could find out an hrly rate, and how many hrs you can work and email them to me that would be bonza" so we said our good byes and i got online and now im asking an hrly Rate i should be payed.

    Start reading now.

    So what im asking is,
    What is a good hrly rate for a 16 year old webdeveloper? I dont have many qualifications in the area (Im 16 im getting them now, doing adv diploma in multimeida and 2yr old computer systems engineering , that includes middle wear which has javascripting, asp, mysql etc.). I will probly learn alot on the job

    Australian Dollars would be good, but i can convert from america

    If you have no qualifications, then $0. Why should somebody hire you if you have no skills to produce quality work? I don't mean to sound like an ***, but it's true.

    I recommend doing small projects--for small pay, but pay nonetheless--for family, or if that's not possible, friends who won't be offended by a business relationship alongside your normal relationship.

    What programming languages of any kind do you know? Do you know anything about graphics design?

    If web design is your strong point, why is there only one template in that whole list of work? That's the most important part. Sure your other stuff is good, but those are just bits and pieces. What really matters is how you build the whole picture and make it work properly.

    Also, asking for an hourly rate is one of the most ambiguous things you will have.
    Every area is different, every state, and every country are different.
    Just in my area (Seattle) you can go less than an hour away and see $20-$30 an hour more or less depending on where you are at.

    Your age has nothing to do with what you charge. The only thing that should matter are your skills.

    My advice would be to look up and contact other designers in your area and ask them what their hourly rate is and after getting 3 or 4 ideas, come up with a price and then email that to the guy who contacted you.

    Don't get in over your head either. If you can't handle the projects or type of projects, then let the other guy know. It is a professional courtesy and you need to be honest with people you work with.

    Good luck....

    Just a thought but wouldn't "qualifications" ring an alarm bell that he might have got taught tables and dreamweaver and image slicing?

    No, take a look at his site. No tables, no image slicing.

    That's kind of my point - surely the portfolio is far more important than the qualifications? - or at least that's the kind of message I'm getting about this line of work.

    Only reason I ask is I haven't got any qualifications either aranoid:

    yeah they did teach us tables and image slicing, but i came here and learnt the proper way, then cracked the nutters at my teachers. Most of them admit im right, but my main webdesign teacher thinks he is the king when really he isnt very good.
