How much money I make as a Web Developer and as Web Designer
Hey there guys, i’m Adrian Manea and In this video I’d like to talk about money and more specifically how much money I make as a web developer.
First let’s narrow things down, because web developer is a vast word combination. I currently work as a front end developer and designer for my small company which I own with a friend of mine. We are basically contractors for medium and big projects, specialised on web apps. So the question is how much money I make strictly if i was an employee of a company like mine.
What I want to add up here is that everyone had a very awkwardly moment when a client asks for a quote of how much would take for a design work or develop work and you would ask yourself, how much should I price him, do I look confident enough to ask for more, should I just tell him a number that i’m sure he will take because I need the money, i don’t know.
The sad part is that most of freelancers go for the second option and charge a lot less than they should just because they don’t feel confident enough with their knowledge. And yes mostly are from undeveloped countries and don’t have a solid finance education, which you might say that they are destroying the market, i say well yes and not really. Why? Because a big client with big budget knows that hiring someone very good and confident that charges like 700 hundred dollars per day is a much better investment for the long time.
As a disclaimer, i do these a lot just to cover my ass from the trolls out here. data might vary based on country you live in. Currently I live in Romania, but our market is strictly international which gives me the advantage in this video to cover the bigger picture.
