Pricing my web design work is sometimes challenging – I’m a lot better at estimating now than I was a few years ago when I started, but still it can be difficult.

When I first started my business I priced everything at a project rate and really undercharged. Now I tend to price larger assignments as a project, but for specific tasks that I’m not sure about, I’ll either provide a price range based on my hourly rate or just indicate that it will be done at the hourly rate. For smaller assignments including all website maintenance, they’re almost always done at the hourly rate.  Special assignments are determined on a case-by-case basis.

Here are some ideas about pricing projects and an excellent hourly rate calculator from FreelanceSwitch.
