Hello

Two of my friends (Well people I know at my gym) are asking me to design a Personal Training website for them and I'm not sure how much to charge them!

The site would be similar to these:

http://www.demandfitness.com/default.asp
http://www.playtrainer.com/index.html
http://www.pocketpt.co.uk/

I doubt the HTML/CSS will be too hard but the site looks pretty big in terms of PHP functionality.
I've never done anything this big before but I know I'm capable - any ideas how much I should charge for such a project?
I was thinking perhaps 500. Too high? Too low?

Thanks

Give yourself an hourly rate you think is fair and multiply it by how long you think it will take.

Or work backwards, you say 500, if it takes you 50 hours or less you are making 10+ per hour. Not a bad wage!

Personally when I take on something I have never done before I would charge slightly less than my normal hourly rate, simply because you are not used to doing whatever so can't guarantee your work.
