A buddy of mine and i have begun building personal and business web sites for people through word of mouth. Our capabilities include being able to create our websites with professional appeal. Though we have very little of our own content. We are starting from the ground up. Of course using up to date software along with our average coding abilities, which include html, css, visual basic, sql, and flash.
We need to find out how to price our services. For example, what should we charge a client who wants a site with basic html and css coding for say 10 pages; in addition, we would be doing minor graphical editing work on client supplied content? Or a site with flash content, as well as datebase implementation.
Should i charge by the hour?...by the project?....by block time?...by page? Get it?
We are completely in the dark about this. Also wondering how much location comes into play, being that we are living in new york metro area.
Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciate....so we can start making some money with this.
Thanks very much....
