As a freelancer I would like to know how other freelancers approach these wishes from a current client:

- a redesign of the current WooCommerce webshop;
- webshop developments based on an existing theme with customizations;
- configuring plugins the webshop;
- design about 35 new banners;
- a customized solution for business related people to login and show bulk prices on same public product pages;
- a membership solution;
- enhancing 100 product photos using photoshop;
- a lot of products that need to be entered to the webshop manually;
- buying the necessary plugins for client;
- using plugins you already bought for other clients.

Project duration: 4 weeks.

How would you price this??

Also: how do you deal with new things that you haven't development yet and find really hard to find a price for? Like you can't say how many hours you need in order to build it.

Hope to get some advices from you guys. I'd very much appreciate any help.

Kind regards,

Hi Manas...

A lot depends upon the country that your client is located in. If your client is located in USA, UK, or Canada, you can check the local (per hour) prices there and charge according. Whereas as in India, it is much cheaper.

In a large project, it is very difficult to estimate the total cost. So you need to break it up into parts and charge them per milestone. After you complete each milestone, kindly ask for payment. 

In case of redesign of website with customization, you need to check the total hours per milestone, then add 25% additional time to it in case it takes more time. If you employ other  freelancers charges, then kindly add their costing also. 

For plugin cost, check the selling prices and add 25% more for installation and setup.

For banners, you will need to check the standard prices or ask another company. 

Data entry prices are far lesser than design and development. 

After your draft a total, add your overhead and profit and then send the quote to your client.

      I could really do with some advice regarding a project my company should (hopefully!) be starting soon.
      The client is a relatively large business, and the project involves over the course of 12 months redeveloping about 24 websites, made up of restaurants, event venues, and cafes.
      In an attempt to make this project easier and more cost-effective we suggested to the client we set up a base set of web components (forms, navbars, footers e.g.) and put together 3 templates (restaurant theme, event venue theme, cafe theme), with a layer of branding CSS to help the individual arms of the business retain some branding differentiation.
      As a result of this component idea I suggested to my MD we look at using a decoupled CMS-Frontend architecture, taking advantage of Nuxt.js (my new favourite toy!) and it's component-based methodology for the frontend, and using WordPress as the CMS. With this framework we would be looking at creating a custom set of components, 3 WordPress themes, and 3 front-end Nuxt.js templates for the corresponding themes.
      Other than some difficulty finding appropriate UK hosting for our needs this was looking like a good solution, however my MD has told me that he was going to quote the client £10k for the templating project because he doesn't feel the client would be happy paying anymore. I responded by saying really that's not enough for the type of architecture we have been talking about.
      The question I have is; am I wrong to say £10k is not enough for this project?
      My experience tells me that £10k is fine if we remove the front-end framework from the equation. As keen as I am to do this project in the way I've described above the number in my head was more along the lines of £20k. Am I way out on this one?
      Appreciate any advice I can get on this. Thanks!

      Dear all,
      I am relatively new to the business of web design but I have built up a good portfolio as a freelancer over the last 18 months specialising in Wordpress built websites.
      I have my own pricing system that I am happy with, (although I probably have tendency to under charge) However most of the sites I build are no bigger than 15 pages and haven't involved anything too complicated.
      I have the possibility of getting a very good commission for a company that has a very large website that can reach up to 40 pages depending on the content. I will of course be reviewing the layout of the site to minimise the number of pages, and they have some more advanced plugin's to help run the company that aren't at the moment not incorporated into the site but linked to externally which needs to be changed.
      So my question is... for such a large site that will take a long time to finish once the content is reviewed, a new design is finished and then build of site is complete, so what would be the best practice for pricing and contracts? There may also be some re-branding work done in the initial stages such as reviewing the Logo.
      I think the website could take up to 6 months to build (but it is a pretty rough estimate) as I wouldn't exclusively be working on it 5 days a week. (The days I am not working on the site I am actually working for the company doing unrelated work)
      I just wondered if anyone had any tips on pricing larger jobs, estimating time frames and discussing contracts for bigger jobs with the client.
      I have a meeting with them in 2 days.
      Thank you for any advice in advance,
