I'm what you would call an expert at web designer, IMO. I've been building sites since before Netscape existed, and if it did exist then, no one knew what it really was anyway.
I'm more artistic than technical. I know HTML "fluently" and I use a lot of graphics and/or design tricks to build killer sites.
I'm the webmaster for a multimedia ad agency, and it's fun, I guess. But, basically I need more money and I'd like to do some freelance work. I've left some posts on a few newsgroups, tried some small ads in local papers. Thus far I haven't gotten any serious responses. Yet, I know there's tons of people out there that make a living doing freelance web work, and I'd like to join that crowd.
I was wondering if anyone would be nice enough to give me some ideas :). What are good ways of finding serious freelance work? What do you look for in a client and what do you try to avoid?
I'm not looking for a new job, just something to do on the side/weekends (to begin with at least) so I can make some extra cash.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance,
