Hi all. I have been contacted to manage a website for a upmarket restaurant. I've never done this for $$ before so wondering what to charge them. I suppose it will require 2-4 1 hour sessions a month of my time.
well, first of all make sure there is some wiggle room in your estimate, for things taking longer than you expect and so on.
typical rates for websites can range from £40-80 per hour - but that's as a company , for a contractor i'd say you'd be looking at £15-25, depending on what is involved (basic html , or advanced programming and databases etc)

I would have a contract written up that you and the company agree with. In the contract it should state how many hours it will be 'per' week / month. I would then figure your pay based about that. In order to get a feel for what you should be paid start with 'per' hour. I would start with $15.00 to $20.00 an hour. It may seem high but I personally do not feel it is for someone starting out.
Side Note: you may know this company / owner on a personal level but you really need a contract to bind the two of you together. I hope I've been helpful. Good luck!
