    Hi everyone,

    I would like your views, as you can see from the title, what the going rate for web design and development is at the moment.

    I do on and off projects for clients and have designed a website for my latest client. You can see the site here, it not fully done and loads slow yet (havent optimized the images yet)

    http://intelligentide.org/latest hamara/hamara.html

    The site will have 10 to 12 pages based on this template. All pages are html with css and one online booking form.

    What would you charge????

    Depends on whether you're based in Westminster or Tsjukkichikkistan.

    And also whether or not it is CMS driven.

    I start at about £750 for a very simple site...

    Based in England, the North, Yorkshire.

    Not CMS driven. Just HTML and CSS.

    My client seems to think I am out of pocket at £600 for about 10 pages!

    Globally the price is all over the map, ha ha. So many things can be factored in. For one company it might take 20 design revisions to get it right, for another only one. For a basic site $1000 is getting harder to do.

    Thanks for reviving a three year old thread for this. Pricing back in 2005 is probably not that relevant to today, INFLATION people.

    this is a process of estimation and available resources. if you have one programmer and the job is 100 hours it will be 100 man-hours. if you have 2 programmers it may still require 100 man-hours but in theory it will be done in half the time

    I
    consider $1700 for a 10 page html site, a complete fortune! If you calculate
    your website to comprise 13 database-driven ASP pages, the cost we would
    charge here would be between $1500 and $ 4500, depending on the complexity
    of the tasks your website has to accomplish.

    well, you are right!

    Like, I'm developing 10-12 page websites with online contact form (photoshop/xhtml/css/js/jq) for only $150, and it's really very cheap price!

    Don't bill per page, that's just amateurish. More importantly, don't undersell yourself. Bill an hourly rate that is fair for your skill level. Somewhere between $25 and $150+ an hour (probably closer to the former - the latter is reserved for truly high-end talent). It doesn't make any sense to sell at a discounted price just because some small businesses think it is too high. That just betrays a lack of understanding on their part about the true value of a website. If they need hardwood floors, they pay full price for them even if it is alot of money, because that's just how much hardwood floors cost. I have had many small businesses not just balk, but actually get angry and accuse me of trying to rip them off because they wanted a website for $200 and I quoted $10,000. They just don't have any understanding or frame of reference for how much a site is actually worth - in development time or in real dollar value.

    I usually charge $75 per hour now but I used to be at $50 for years. It's usually based on your level of experience. I've been programming in the web for over 18 years now, and I'm probably selling myself short, but when you're a one-man show, you don't want to scare away potential clients.

    BTW, almost every thread I've been in has someone who's been banned. It seems to be quite common here. Why is that?

    For simple HTML/CSS sites that I can outsource to my VAs on oDesk I charge $25/page. For Wordpress sites I charge $50/hr.
