I am looking for a method of how to charge potential clients for work.
Recently, a friend of a friend of a friend learned that I run my own site and have completed some odd jobs for my church and through my internship. They are asking me to help launch their website and are willing to pay me, but I do not have the slightest idea of what to charge.
I have looked around here a bit at some of the offers, but I still cannot get a grip on what would be fair for a job like this. $50? $100? $500? More??
I know, as they probably do, that if they go through a professional coder, the costs could get rather high. Since they will be so small scale and because they are friends of friends, it does not seem right for me to charge too much, plus the idea that this one offer to could lead to others gets me hopeful.
Can anyone spout out some figures to help me gauge what I should charge?
