How much to charge for a site design project?
I've been into web site design since a long time ago(around 5 years), but I've worked mostly with in-house projects at the bank I worked on.
Recently a good friend, who owns a chain of sports stores(8 stores) asked me if I could design their corporate and consumer web sites. I answered yes and we scheduled a meeting for the weekend to talk about the requirements and scope of the project.
Now the problem is... I don't have an idea of how much I can charge him for the project. I don't know how much one of the local web design shops or freelance designers would charge him, so I don't have any reference. For the meeting I must give him at least an estimated price, because he wants to know if it adjusts to his current budget.
I know that establishing the cost of a web project is a difficult task, but any help, reference, method, etc. would be very helpful for me.
I'm aware that most of you consider this kind of information private so in case you don't want to post the info in public you can write me at: email@example.com
BTW.... I work mostly with Macromedia tools: Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Flash, and when coding is needed I work with Asp or Asp.net
Although I don't have much information for the project right now I can tell you that it will be a mixed HTML-FLASH project, probably mostly HTML with a Flash consumer-oriented intro. It will have a products showcase for their 10 most important products lines, shops directory, and corporate and contact info.
If you want to mention an estimated average price it would be very helpful. Of course it will be even more helpful to know how to obtain that estimated average price.
Thanks in advance for your help.
