I charge by the hour. Depending on the project and the complexities of the site, prices will vary. So I always meet for an initial consultation so we can negotiate pricing.
Do I have to pay by the hour? Can’t I just pay in one lump sum?
In most situations I suggest the best method is to be charged by the hour. However, if you prefer a one off payment for the website, we can negotiate a price after our initial consultation. Payment via the hourly rate method is advisable as it allows flexibility, accurate charging and may very well be cheaper for your business.
Are there any extra costs?
There are factors to consider. I will charge extra for added features (e-commerce, booking system etc.), extra meetings, additional features or lengthy phone calls.
You charge hourly. Do you charge whilst you are learning a new skill?
Certainly not. If I have to learn a new skill, I do not charge for the time that takes, but only for the time I actually take working on the project.
