Get invited
Looking sharp! Now you're into the waiting game, whenever a client posts a job they will have the option of inviting up to 5 creatives to quote for the work. If you've made a standout profile you'll soon receive an email notification to say you've been invited to quote for a job.
Create a contract
Now you're cooking. View the job invite to see the details of the job and take a sneak peak at the project, if it's something you're interested in then it's time to produce a quote. Fortunately DoodleMeeple has everything you need to quickly build and send a quote to the client. Once again there are some rules we'd like you to follow:
1: Be realistic with your pricing, DoodleMeeple is actively pursuing the interests of freelance creatives by promoting fair pricing. This isn't a cattle market so don't undersell yourself and don't try to undercut the competition.

2: Ask questions, clarify and discuss the job with the client. Once you have been invited you'll be able to communicate directly with the client so before you put a quote together ensure you fully understand what's involved.

3: Be specific with your details, if accepted by the client your quote will form a binding contract so make sure you can refer to it in case of a dispute.
Get accepted and start work!
Once the client accepts your quote, organise your payments using the milestones you agreed to. DoodleMeeple provides the milestones feature to make sure both parties are happy throughout the whole process.

Once you're set on the nitty gritty start making awesome work that will make the game shine!
Disputes
Disputes happen from time to time and they usually happen for one reason, lack of clear communication.

You can mitigate the chances of a dispute by ensuring your quote concise and accurate, by meeting deadlines and communicating regularly with the Client. If you're unable to fulfil your obligations then let the client know as soon as possible. Most importantly, use the milestone functionality to ensure that there is clear evidence of your progress with the project.

If the situation deteriorates to a point where we need to step in, then that's what we'll do. We'll act as a mediator to reach a resolution that suits both parties.
