I have been creating websites for 6 years now and have really enjoyed learning about, html, css, php, mysql, seo. I started by creating websites for affiliate marketing and have made a very modest income from it. I have also, created sites for friends and family who were extremely happy with my work. The problem is however, it does not pay all the bills and I find myself getting obsessed with work and shutting out the world. A couple of days ago I decided to create a personal website promoting my services, including links to my previous work and plastered it everywhere I could. I have received an overwhelming response and now have a few meetings with potential clients including a very exiting opportunity with a business associate of my brothers who would like start a web design business with a 50/50 split. He knows nothing about websites but, has a great deal of knowledge about how to build a successful business. I would bring my knowledge of building and hosting websites to the table and he would take care of the business side of things including marketing. He has 3 very successful businesses and has said he is very happy to supply me with anything I need to get started. I have very limited business sense and I'm a little overwhelmed, I still haven't registered myself as self employed I have a meeting today with a client who needs an eCommerce website built for his toy company, he has done very well over the past 3 years using eBay, Amazon and now feels it's the right time to start his own site. I showed him opencart and a few paid themes and he was very impressed. What would be a fair rate to setup hosting, install opencart and a theme probably including SSL? I was thinking around £200 does that sound fair, to me and him? Would you normally price a job by calculating the time it would take for you to do it and work out a daily rate? Also, I have a meeting with my potential business partner next week and it would be great to get some tips from people on these forums, already within the business on what questions I need to ask such as "Would I be paid a wage before the 50/50 split?". My brother has said that I need to be more confident in my abilities and tell him what I can do and not what I can't. I guess I have been sat in my front room shutting the world out for too long Any input would be greatly appreciated!
