    How much to charge for a design job

    Hi

    I have been asked to give a quote for a website design. they need a shoping cart setup with 10-20 products.

    i don't know much details yet.

    how much do you think i should charge them. i know there is not much info here, but i want an rough idea of what you lot will charge for something like this?

    Hello,

    You may use the formula below:
    hours require to complete the website x your hourly rate.

    on design jobs that I do, I use a similar formula as above however slightly modified.

    First step is to sit down with the client and decide exactly what they want. Make a structured list from these things. Then tell them you will get back with them soon with a quote. Now take this list, beside each item write how many hours you expect each one to take. Next, total your hour up, then multiply by your hourly wage.

    Finally, I use something I call a project price. After I get the hours expected and multiply that by the hourly wage. I then deduct say 15% from that number and come up with a project price. I do this because the person is buying my services in bulk and I am able to work faster than having to start and stop with small projects.

    I hope this gives you some guidance.

    You just have to set it all out and calculate how long you think its going to take you, then pick an appropriate hourly rate for your level of talent.

    These are some links to get your started, but I recommend you do some more thorough research. Charging $20 doesn't cut it, and helps to saturate the web design market even more.
