    Hello Blackhatworld, I've been a freelance designer for the last three years and I was just contacted by a large nut and snack company with 250 products. They want to hire me to design the website, photography of all the products, content marketing, social media, newsletter integration, logo design, on page and off page Seo.

    Around what ball-park should I charge if my hourly rate is $25 / hr? Also any advice that will help me manage thie content better would be greatly appreciated!

    I'll tell you right now. Photographing the products, editing them in photoshop, and putting them all on white backgrounds is a pain in the ass. It takes A LOT of time. I hate doing that part. But I hired out and the photographer did a terrible job.

    You should do a monthly retainer plus per project on a fixed contract. You will make more money in the long run!

    The customer doesn't want a monthly contract. I ended up quoting the client $2500 for both websites, photography and graphics.

    That's not good. You should have said 10k for each site.
