if you are going to design logo and other graphics too for your client apart from the website, then i think for wordpress it should be no less than 200$..

If you are going to do the same thing in dreamweaver, double the prices..

oooooh. I wouldnt pay $150 for a wordpress blog that simplistic. sorry, just going by my previous dealings.

check out the link in my sig. i got that created for less than $150 - and it's not exactly what you would call 'simple'.

Truthfully, I wouldnt pay more than $50 knowing that I could find a premium wordpress theme that would cost a similar price.

oh, if you're planning on creating logos and graphics, then yes, you could up the price slightly.

also depends on your competition, how clued up your client is and how much money they have.

Who designed your theme? It looks good.

Did it myself in photoshop. Then got someone on odesk to turn it into a theme.

until you have a good idea of how much youd like to charge a client and for which services, you could always charge an hourly fee. I do that a lot when the client isnt exactly sure if what work needs to be done.

Need a web designer? Pay me what you can, or barter. Im great at customizing wordpress and designing graphics in photoshop. PM me with questions or projects you need done.

I agree with Trisha, if its a small project that won't take you too long to finish, then give them an estimate of hours, and charge hourly. Tell them that you will set up an excel sheet that describes everything you got done. That gives them a sense of security if you decide to charge a higher hourly rate.

I typically charge local customers $299 for wordpress setup and design (with hosting it's $699 total for a year). Although it's never simple . . .LOL. Consider what else you are offering and the amount of time (including time with the client) it will take to tweak your design to meet their needs. Don't worry they could get a premium theme (I show my clients the premium themes we START with and the prices so they know I am investing, too). You've obviously already spent money to have someone convert your PSD to a WP theme.

Consider also the value of your expertise. You can do this and they would have to spend HOURS figuring it all out!

What else do you offer . . .consider offering to train them on how to use their site once the design is done. Consider teaching them how to do the SEO and setting up the site to do well in Google (no guarantees though). You have so much more to offer that they NEED. Don't short yourself.

Let us know what you decide
