Re: Not getting any work, should I lower rate?

- Don't tell us how long things take. Just tell us what you can do. We know how long it takes and we know you're going to charge for your time. That's Ok.
- Take out the phrase "I am here to find work". Not professional, and sounds desparate. This may be why you're there, but a customer wants to hear about why you can meet their requirements.
- And yes, add more before & afters. Label them. Sometimes, we cannot tell what is before or after.... especially when they are of different sizes.
Hopefully you'll find this helpful. Good luck ! It's very competitive out there, so hang in there !
