How often do we ask ourselves if we need to rethink our pricing strategy? Believe it or not, your pricing strategy is a huge part of your overall branding and can influence how the world, and your clients, perceive your value, professionalism, and talent.

Mark Strozier's insight:

A guy cuts my grass and charges me $50. I gladly pay him because he's doing me a service I choose not to do.


It takes him 15 minutes. Easy math... He makes $200/hour.


A guy washes my car and charges me $35. I gladly pay him because he's doing me a service I choose not to do.


It takes him 20 minutes. Easy math... He makes $105/hour.


Considering hourly service rates with this perspective, most marketing, design firms, designers, programmers, IT specialists and freelancers are a bargain.

Now, consider my (or your) own hour rate (let's say: $200) and the time I'd spend to cut the grass (45min; suppose I have all equipment necessary); it comes to a 'personal cost' of $200 x 3/4 = $150. Well, if I can pay any amount below this, I'd be better off hiring someone else :-)

My point exactly Dhyan.

For first time freelance web designers, nothing is more intimidating then when their first client asks, “Well, what will it cost?” We all imagine the hardest part of getting a gig will be finding the client, the proposal, or the project itself.


This is a really well thought out post regarding how best to approach pricing your work as a designer. We've been using per hour pricing for the past several years and have finally decided to give project pricing a try.
