I'm (about to be) a freelance web developer.
Changes are I'll be hiring the services of primarily graphic designers to create logos, design pages etc.
Thing is - in designing a business card for example - I don't really know what makes a business card good or whatever.
Additionally - I would like to chat with people in general about freelancing, branding strategies etc, but I don't want to be leading people on and basically wasting their time; but at the same time - I really can't afford to be paying people $50-200/hr for every conversation I have.
Are there some general guidelines for what's reasonable to request or expect, and what's not?
