Hi there

I have been trying for a very long time and still have not figured out how to do up a website quote/estimation.

If client wants a website blog with;

* Homepage; sub headings: archives, categories, resource links, sponsored links and advertising
* Aboutpage; info about the website blog.
* Media with drop down menu; gallery page, video page and download wallpapers.
* A new logo design
* Site admin.
* Hosting
* Domain name registration.

How much would you charge for that and is there a breakdown on why I the client should be paying that amount?

I was thinking of using wordpress by the way, is this suitable?

Please help me.

Many thanks in advance
CHEERS :)

Based on your hourly rate!

I have a webdesigner quote 75$/hr. Another 130$/hr. And my favorite one (website outsourced) 15$/hr.

Do you know how to do all the things in this RFP? If you do, it's simple math, 2 hours for this, 20 minutes for that . . . . if you don't know how to do all these things and plan to figure it out as you go, you may be over your head.

One provider's charge is going to be different than another, based on their experience and many other factors. No one can throw a number out for you. I could give what it would cost me, but someone else would do if for less. Or more. It depends on you (and what the budget will bear.)

Hey thanks guys,

Hi Daily, if I charge by hourly and times it by the 40hr a week is this the correct formula to work it out (Total hrs x hourly rate = $Cost) but that's only if the project will take this long?
And my favorite one (website outsourced) 15$/hr.

Lastly, if I outsource some of the work. Do I give them the hourly rate (website outsourced) 15$/hr or do they give me their hourly rate or quote? How does this work?

Hi RocknBil, I just found out what RFP means. The question is, if I can complete the goals in RFP, then how do I estimate a time for each objectives e.g. layout, logo etc? Do you have to go by self instinct or is there some kind of guideline to follow. For me, it's very hard to calculate a time for a project. So I don't under cut myself or overcharge in quoting..as you can see, I have values and morals to live by hehe lol.

If possible, can I see a sample of a breakdown cost for a project e.g. pdf etc?

But thanks heaps your for time guys, would surely like to hear from you again.

Why? If you have done this work before or more than once you should have a pretty good idea how much time it takes to complete. I suppose if you have never done the work you might be in a bit of a jam.

I promise your prices will probably vary from others. I once was requested to submit an RFP to a city government for a web project. I was one of 4 vendors chosen to do so. The RFP was clear what the end result was to be, but not the steps to get there. I priced out my services and turned in my bid. I was the lowest bidder by far and did not get the contract! However had I got the contract being the lowest bidder wouldn't have under cut myself, at least I don't feel it did. I would still have made a fantastic amount of money. So I wouldn't worry about under cutting yourself. Price what you do work for and an amount your are happy with and then run with it.

as you can see, I have values and morals to live by hehe lol.

Hopefully all of us live by some values and morals. However in this case I am not sure where it factors in outside of simply being honest and figuring out actual cost and writing it down with a fair mark up. What is considered fair might delve a bit into the ethics realm I suppose, but what is "fair" to one person may be robbery to someone else and vice versa.

My friend, you are so right. What seems right to me, may seem different to another.

I guess can only find out by experiencing.
