I’m a freelancer and my husband say’s I’m cheap! which is a terrible thing to say to woman, I much prefer the term ‘cost effective’ ;-) However he is probably right. and with Christmas fast approaching and my epic feelings of guilt every time I invoice someone I think it’s probably time I addressed the issue. Anyway, I have been approached by a community festival to create a website for them. Last year I created all their artwork (logo, posters, website graphics, T shirt design etc completely free of charge) it was worth it, I got a bit of paid work out of it through the festival organizers. This year they are using my artwork again but have approached me to handle their website this time. They have asked for the following: how much to build the site how much to manage the site annually if we needed you to amend/add etc at any time how much. I recently completed a personal website for one of the organizers which was at the bargain cost of £150 design costs, £9.99 hosting per month (first three months free). Amendments at my hourly rates as a designer (however there is a CMS in place). I am thinking of offering the same deal, but feel terribly guilty doing so, as most of the other organizers give their time and resources for free (or at least say they do). They are a great mixture of people. I suppose what I’m asking is; does the above deal and my prices seem unreasonable or cheap. The site has at least 10 pages, and some embedded features. I want to give them some aspect of my skills for nothing, but just can’t afford to do it completely for free! So to surmise: Design costs: £150 based on similar current content Hosting: £9.99 per month Amendments: £15 per hour (capped at £30 per month) Or should I lovingly craft a full cost package?
