Coming up with a fair price is always challenging. I've been doing freelance web design for many years now, and I feel doubt about my prices at times. It's a fair question — how do you set a price that can help you keep a roof over your head while still keeping clients happy and getting new work. I found it easiest to keep in mind that clients are like everyone else — they always want it cheaper. I know I can't afford to do my work for nothing, so I have a minimum amount already in my head. But then it becomes a determination of how much my work is worth as well as how much do I need and want to make for doing it. And of course, how much will the client pay.
This article looks at the mechanics of a web design project. It asks you to think about the costs involved as well as your experience and how long you think the project will take. The second page gives you formulas to help you determine an hourly rate and then from there gives you suggestions for how to price your projects.
