You responded to Joseph C.'s comment which is right above yours. He stated that unless you are in the same country, you should be looking for someone to do the job for less and I agree with Joseph. I guarantee you that if your price is high and someoen with the same qualifications have a lower price that you will lose the bid. I happen to want both. Whoever has the lowest price AND the fastest turn out wins the bid. Now like someone else stated "it's like speed dating" Just because you charge more money for your services doesn't mean that you are better. Or an even better example would be an electronic device...just because it costs more doesn't mean it's better. The expression you pay for what you get can apply sometimes and not always. The purpose of this site is to pick the best person for the job who fits both criteria of price and job performance. It is not one or the other. The original post complains of freelancers boasting of their qualifications when in fact, they're lying. I find that to be 100% true. I have hired 3 freelancers ALL at different prices with a $2,000 gap in price and the highest paid freelancer was clueless. The best thing for clients to do is if you see a problem within the first week and find no solution, cancel the job and start your search again. Demand to see proof of all milestones immediately which includes graphic work, animation AND programming. I do agree that feedbacks should NOT be removed. It is how clients determine who to initially interview.
