Got some work...but how much?

Last Update: February 27, 2014

So I have a part time job, or at least a few hours a week most weeks. Yay for me :)

I also have a web related job coming up, loading product/stock information onto a local website. Interesting indeed. I have no idea how much to charge. Any clue anyone?

Hi, Josh! I asked my mentor about your question [my grandfather of all things ...a Management Consultant since 1962 and still going],...he said well it should be at least $125 per hour, but more appropriately $375+, which is a lot less than his plumber, his Accountant and his Lawyer charges him. And, you work is precise, it gets him on the way to making money and improve his business, the plumber, probably a former lawyer, the accountant and the lawyer only do 'passive' things, though important, for his business. You will actually make his business run better and make money!

always get the other person's offer first- why not ask them where they would ideally like to be price wise for this work...then laugh gently and say "well in a ideal world I can see why you might think that- this is what I was thinking..." LOL

As I understand it the stock is normally uploaded by the host/web designer cms designer ( all in one company it seems ) Seems straight forward at the moment. They seem to charge rather a lot from what I can tell. More than I would anyway.

if it is data input rates, then evaluate what the market charges. If you are using a CMS and responsible for more than just inputting crank it up accordingly.
NB, if you are freelance, you are saving them £$£$£$ so, charge accordingly- consider charging by the batch rather than the hour...might be another consideration, Andy
