I'm guessing this might depend on the city you live in I'm not sure. (I live in a fairly large town, Boise, ID) But I've had quite a few people approach me now and want me to build them a website, mainly just a WP website. so far they have all been for IBOs (like a scentsy rep, as an example) or small business, that don't have a site or already have a site that hasn't been updated since about 1997.
I have no clue where to even begin as far as what would be a fair price to charge them.
Do I tell them to (& where) to purchase hosting first if they don't have it?
Do I just use my hosting account & charge them based off that?
(I would think that would be easier that way they are all in one place and I can get in to change them without logging into a bunch of hosting sites.)
I just recently took a friends wedding photography website that a graphic designer built for her (with NO SEO whatsoever) and she was stuck on about page 15 of Google last year with just a handful of weddings. I updated her site, did just a little bit of SEO and landed her smack dab almost at the top of page 1 of Google in about 2 weeks time. Now she already has 16 weddings book for the year & it's only 2 months into the year, and she is ecstatic.
& now I'm getting more people asking me to build websites, & some that asked me last year & I just haven't had time until now. But I just don't know where to even start, or what charge...
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
