    First of all, that's a fixed price job based on the last line. You do realize that if you take that on, there's no guarantee that you will get paid, or when you'll get paid. You take a fixed price job on at your own risk.

    Second, I already answered your last question and the same answer applies. If I tell you to say X, Y and Z, anyone else looking for this job will have the advantage of the same advice, and as such will probably say the same thing. That does you no good, and it does the other people reading this post and thinking I'm giving them the answer no good.

    So all I'm going to give you for a response is "let the guy know in your own words what you can do, how long it will take you to do it, and how / when you want to get paid." Give him what he asked for.

    Thank you so much for spending your valuable time for reply. I honestly say that nobody would ever tell me before about it like you. I am very glad and take it seriously as a result too. I hope you should continue help me and others in future as well.

    I just want to know that how to start Professional Web Design work if I get this. Which elements need to start for the job? May I ask client to provide a PSD file or images or anything else for this job?

    In fact, I just want to get a start up guideline as well.

    No more, I am waitng for your kind response.

    Thank you.

    That's just it...I can't help you any more than I did. It's like getting hired anywhere else...you look at the job, see if you're a fit, write a letter saying why you're a fit and answer any questions that the employer may have, and hopefully you get hired. There is no magic formula or secret sauce...just applied knowledge and common sense. Again, whatever I tell you to do, I'm telling everyone else who reads the forum to do likewise, so I'm not helping you in the end. You're going to have to figure this one out yourself.

    You should ask what he already has prepared, yes, but I'd imagine from the job description he's probably got nothing beyond a logo. That would be a good question.
