Can anyone recommend the best way to become an independant consultant? I was considering becoming one for small businesses first.
Some questions I have are:
How would you market yourself & your services?
How much would you charge, while keeping in mind that small businesses do not have a lot of money to spend?
What are some of the, preferrably free, latest technologies that one would use when building small web applications for small businesses? Including reasonably priced servers, if the client does not have their own.
And, I welcome any other suggestions.
