|Career / Re: What Skills Have You Learnt That Can Earn You Money? by WebMonk(m): 9:16am On Jun 18, 2016|
Good point OP.
I learnt mobile app development using a mobile app framework. More importantly, I learnt how to build mobile app layouts for such a framework and sell them online to global customers using Gumroad.com. Chances are if you have mastered a skill here you can sell your skill (or products made from your skill) online. And if you're selling on gumroad you're earning in dollars. so you're inflation proof.
I'll be taking more questions if you're interested, but from there its up to you.
Basically digital goods.

I respectfully disagree. if you're not too big for 10k, that's okay. As I said, I value myself far more no matter the circumstance. That means we're targeting different customers.
Sounds good on paper excluding overhead/running costs/referral system or marketers. But if it works for you, that's okay.

@GraphicsPlus, true. Skill and Knowledge are vital. I was quoting him though
|Webmasters / Re: Creating Your Own Website And Not Letting People Cheat You by WebMonk(m): 3:17pm On Feb 21, 2013|
myviewr: also imagine you are a developer who charges 10,000 for development you get 10 people in a month that is 100,000 you also charge after sales service for maintenance lets say 1,000 a month thats sums up to 10,000 a month
I'm guessing from your post that your knowledge of bootstrap helps you in your 10 clients x 10k business logic. If it does, Kudos. That's being efficient. As for your business logic, you have something that brings in 10k every month (EDIT: or whatever low amount you charge). And that, as far as your business goes, is the value of your time. I value myself far more and think of bigger things. And if that means a client can't afford my services, that's perfectly okay.
That's really the gist of it, I'm afraid.
|Webmasters / Re: Creating Your Own Website And Not Letting People Cheat You by WebMonk(m): 1:25pm On Feb 21, 2013|
I suppose it comes down to how you value/position yourself.
From what I've read, you seem to be talking about
But to suggest that price of 5000-10,000 for anything more than installing an already complete template on a wordpress site is basically saying "whatever time i invested in this is no more that worth 10k" (assuming profit is 10k) Anyone (client or developer) will agree that's cheap for a human being to sit down in Nigeria and work on a project without factoring his knowledge, power supply and internet bills.
Anyone with this mindset will no doubt think that even 80k is broad daylight robbery.
Anyone has the right to charge what he chooses. In any business you're paying for the application of the business's knowledge in a context that gives you value/profit + overhead. That's where the charging is really, and and be anywhere between 10k and $1,000,000
[size=5pt]Guess he hasn't seen the client that turned him down because he charged 10k....[/size]
|Webmasters / Re: Reasons Some Clients Use To Justify Wanting To Pay You Cheap by WebMonk(m): 11:27am On Feb 14, 2013|
These people would have at least reasoned that we've heard them all before.
As for me, I decided no more. I can't understand it. Its like the only way for them to be satisfied is if they know they have cheated you. I even had a potential client become enraged over my prices after I politely turned him down, when I'm not the one that told him to come to my website/see my portfolio/contact me.
In my former place of work, the client went so far as to ask for a "discount" over the already "discounted" agreed price, after the project was complete! I guess I should add that to the list.

|Webmasters / Re: Procedural Vs Object Oriented PHP by WebMonk(m): 9:53am On Aug 26, 2012|
Eventually you'll move to OOP. If you've been using procedural for a long while you'll appreciate the speed and management of OOP better especially with larger projects. Adding a framework to it only makes your work faster. Some frameworks are better optimized for speed than others.

Yup. got that blackout page too. but my link was slow enough for me to see the actual content I was looking for before the blackout occured (they were using an overlay). so I refreshed and stopped the page JUST before it finished loading. Perfect.

*dhtml:Cool. Excellent documentation and a vibrant community. Its light-weight and a little barebones, but most have been made up for by the community and updates.

Codeigniter does it for me. Built on top of it to suite my needs. Still is my fave. How come Kohana's not on the list?
|Webmasters / Re: Somebody Please Help Me by WebMonk(m): 10:07am On Jul 15, 2011|
no harm in asking. though if he doesnt oblige, your next action should be contacting the webhost itself for assistance. the transfer is usually a webhost to webhost affair initiated by whoever registered the site, so explaining your case to the current webhost should hopefully start the process by the circumventing the developer (its a long shot though)
|Webmasters / Re: Somebody Please Help Me by WebMonk(m): 5:33pm On Jul 12, 2011|
If the web developer[b] registered the domain on your behalf[/b], then under normal circumstances you would have instructed him to facilitate the transfer process. But since you and him ended on a sour note, if the web developer doesn't/can't honor your request, you might have burnt the bridge before crossing it.
Assuming the above is the case (you can't get the developer to do it, even if its in his name), your other options are slim. Can you contact the webhost directly, explaining the situation? If you're a registered company, some documentation might help. The key is convincing the webhost the domain is in fact yours.
I've written on these issues extensively, and it might help you be more proactive as per your next project. Hope this helps.

Hmmm, perhaps 'www' then? coz its what I'm using for my signature image and every post I need to add an image.
But he's got the tags though, so whichever works for him.
|Webmasters / Re: How Do I Add Pictures On Nairaland Posts?! by WebMonk(m): 11:46am On Jul 10, 2011|
you need to use SMF's image tag:
(img)http://htttp://full-url-of-the-image(/img) <<--------------replace '()' with '' to see it in action.
and voila! done.
|Webmasters / Re: Lack Of Jobs Or Lack Of Quality Graduates For The Jobs by WebMonk(m): 9:26am On Jul 09, 2011|
Chances are the good ones are too few and spread apart that for every competent web professional a client might meet, he/she is likely to meet a dozen quaks (DIY bookers, Frontpagers, etc). Fastforward some
There are jobs out there. its just they mostly pay so low even qualified graduates shouldn't touch it with a 10 meter pole.
