I have purchased a few templates on here and I have put in the time and effort to develop nice concepts for my clients.

Now all I have to do is come up with a price? Can anyone help me out?

Thanks

It’s honestly up to you…you are using a template so people are really paying for your service, and not as much the website. An easy way to do something like this would be to set an hourly rate for yourself…Meet with the client to find out their needs, and then try to figure out how long it will take you to make the necessary modifications, and multiply that time by the hourly rate, and you have your price. ;)

Yeah – there is no magic number. The most important thing is to determine what you believe your time is worth. Then multiply that by the number of hours you spend on the project. Finally, add in any additional costs.

But, there is no golden formula. :)

Thanks so much guys!

And I totally agree with you both. There really is no set price.

With that said, what is an average hourly rate these days, lol

Or what about if I broke it down to pages. like so much per page you know. keep it simple.

(example)

Client: Matt I need a website design and development. how much will it cost?

Matt: Yes I can do that for you. I usually charge $100.00/page.

Could that work?

Thanks everyone.

you can do per page, that works good..

I usually already know what im going to charge before I get together with them, but I like to see/hear what they have in mind first, then I ask a few questions to make sure if they will need a CMS or anything special like that. I want to know what they will be expecting the users to do on the site etc etc.

I usually say 1000 dollars for anything html. 1500 for anything cms, and 2000 for anything flash + cms and 1500 for anything flash.

thats what I do

Remember to say your customers that design is from the template and there are for sure sites with the same theme..

yeah definatly dont go claiming it as your own work, even if you modified it. A reasonable price i think would be around the $300.00 USD + mark if you just bought a template and edited it for them

Yes thats exactly what I do.

They know going in that the site is a template. And so thats why I try and keep the pricing down.

I just find myself doing so much photoshop/illustrator work for these companies as well you know.

Building a website usually means I have to re-do alot of there designs and logos and stuff like that.

So I basically just try and factor all of that in.

Thanks everyone!
