How much should I charge?

Morning... I am useless at talking money.

I have setup a website for someone. Bought the domain, and the hosting and created the site (about 8 hours work in total). He needed it in short notice, I had stuff up for him the same day (Wednesday) and then built the WordPress blog for him in the background, fully launched on Saturday.

I have no idea what I'm supposed to charge though. (He has paid me back for the domain and hosting charges)

Are you an actual professional or is this something you do on the side?

charge him what you thinks your work worth minus mates rates and tax as it will be cash in hand

A Contractor would bill about £750-£1000 for a days work, so about half of that would be fair and he would be getting a bargain at that.:thumbsup:

I used to charge £20/hour for web design. Not worth doing it now, there's too many who think they are 'web designers' but actually knock out templates and steal others designs.

That seems fair. Web developers are a dime a dozen these days, it's not hard to use some software to knock up a nice site in a few hours. The £750 - £1000 a day mentioned above would be for top end developers who write from scratch and wouldn't touch a website of the type you've done with a barge pole.

If it's a good job etc, I would say don't sell yourself short.

I'm charging around £20+ p/h for a site I'm doing at the moment (or will finish after uni). Granted, I'm coding it by hand, but still.

Since you knocked it up at short notice etc, then I'd say £20 p/h isn't unreasonable. Fancy showing your work? :p

well word press is pretty simple to setup but the content and fiddling around with themes and images takes the time + setting up all the different sections of the site.

charge about £150 it was a full days work.

I used to charge £62 per hour including VAT for similar type of work but that was for American Express, not a mate! 3 year contract too which was very nice :)

I did a basic website for someone who runs a fairground ride , just a few pages of information and a photo gallery . He gave me £300 for my trouble . I did setup the domain & hosting too .
