Sorry if this is off topic?
I am starting freelancing now, and hopefully will start advertising on warriors soon, but for now I need to gain more experience.
My question is, I want to apply for a job on elance, it will be my first freelancing job but I have no idea how much to charge (I am in the UK too, and the pound is currently strong so that's not so good either).
The job is for a PHP CMS site to be coded from scratch (Pure PHP), with MySQL backend, with typical html and css and possibly ajax and jquery. Site would have home, contact, product pages and of course create, modify, delete CRUD elements.
Now I am sure I am capable of doing this, I have been reading and practising on my own sites, although I still feel 'slightly uneasy' with some PHP stuff but I am sure I can do it.
Long story short - what should I charge, I really want to get the work for the experience but have no relative charge amount to set my proposal against as I cannot see what other freelancers have quoted.
I might have droned on a bit there!
