THE FIRST WAY you can make money: "BY YOUR OWN LABORS":
1) About charging the customer:
* Charge by an estimate for the whole project: be fair, but MAKE A PROFIT!
* Charge by the hour: ASK around your area what they charge per hour, then go below that amount.
* Charge by the number of rods used, PLUS a minimum charge.
(EXAMPLE: $5 per rod, plus $20 minimum charge)(adjust pricing for the current market).
* Create a website for yourself. (See "How I did this site" via the "Navbar" at left).
* Craigslist: under "services": Anyone that emails you is ALREADY wanting a job done!
* Buy a stick-on magnetic sign to advertise your services: Keep it SHORT: What you provide & how to contact you.
* Create your own business card. (see mine below).
3) Be fair / Be honest / Delight them by going the extra mile!
4) Take at least one quarter of a welding class for direct supervision. (Unless you're already a decent welder!).
