    How much do you this this is worth: making WP website, using generic theme, designing logo and visit card, making FB and YT accounts, simple SEO, and training the client?

    making WP website using generic theme: 150 USD

    designing logo: 60 USD (high quality)
    visit card: 20 USD
    making FB and YT accounts: 1 USD per account
    simple SEO: price depends on what actually is needed to be done
    training the client: training what? SEO? Designing? 50 USD per hour

    The U.S. most likely. Here in the UK I'd charge a similar price. That's at least 15 hours of work if done properly.

    Funny you should ask this! Only last week I set up my dentist's nameservers, clicked on Fantastico, uploaded a theme & set up her domain email with Thunderbird and charged her $400!

    If I can pick up a couple of these clients per month I'll be happy, but as I'm not actively seeking them...

    You should ask as much as your client is willing to pay.

    The correct answer is whatever someone is willing to pay. More specifically its really just how much you can confidently charge while keeping a straight face. I sold a theme once for $900. All I did was buy the theme ($50), install wordpress and then upload and activate the theme. I probably could have got more.

    experience has nothing to do with the price you charge ppl.. if you lack experience in something then outsource it to someone with the experience and charge whatever they are willing to pay

    It is always easier to lower prices than it is to raise them.

    you should charge the amount of hrs spent working on your work x what you are worth an hr to yourselves.

    $800 to $1k sounds reasonable. It doesn't matter how hard it is, it matters what effort would the client need to make in order to do it himself. It's like potatoes, growing them myself would be a lot cheaper but I still prefer to buy them as I can earn a lot more in the same time span.
