    Cost of Web Page Design


    Can anyone give me some guidelines/pointers on how to cost web page/site design.


    Is this best done by page charge, by hour etc, and would you split down html
    and asp authoring seperately. Also what would be deemed reasonable rates.

    Thanks for any help

    Usually clients want an itemized bill for what they're getting, not just a
    huge bill with astronomical hours worked.

    You can itemize the bill in the following ways: graphic design, logos, photos,
    html coding, asp, database design etc. Obviously building a database is the
    most time consuming and the most difficult, so it will also probably be the
    most expensive.

    $100 and hour is acceptable in the US, but you may want to adjust this rate
    depending on your client and whether you are freelancing or not.

    Usually clients want an itemized bill so they can dispute the charges and
    chizel you on the bill.

    Do not fall into that trap. Go to http://www.brennerbooks.com for their pricing
    guide for web design.

    The book is $33.00 and when you go to court because the ******* won't make
    his final payment you have an independent third party reference that will
    stand up in court.

    Hope you get this one.

    Re: Cost of Web Page Design


    hi
    My first freelance design opportunity was for a local
    carrer opps site and i charged by the page initially and then
    for different formats that where in the page like asp/java/ and such by the
    hours it took me to develop them, but after i wazs done before i uploaded
    i got a quote from an isp that offered
    site building and as much as i charged it was not even close to what they
    would have charged...so i called back and asked how they went about charging
    and all they would tell me is there designer makes an hourly wage plus bonus.

    thats all i know man(^:
