    Hello BHW,
    I have been recently looking around the BHW Forum to find what is a reasonable amount of money to offer to make and maintain/manage a website for a local business or of similar type i.e Real Estate Agents.
    I want the client to feel as if I am a professional and legitimate website building company (Which I'm not far from achieving).
    I have a lot of experience of building websites.
    Please give me an insight of some figures!
    Thank-you!!

    Yes, it is possible. Why do you need figures?

    Work out your hourly rate and charge accordingly.

    Not sure what type of figures you're after but....


    20 websites a year at $1k would get you $20k = one website every 2.6 weeks

    40 websites a year at $500 would get you $20k = one website every 1.3 weeks

    10 websites a year at $2k would get you $20k = one website every 5.2 weeks


    If you can get away with charging a lot more than $2k then it's going to take you a lot less websites to meet your goal!

    Don't build, buy it and sell it. Faster.

    You must be flippa professional if you are going to buy and sell websites.

    Sorry should make myself clearer. I suggest to TS instead of building himself, why not outsource most if not all the websites creation, and getting more customers base. If he is to do the website, n he alone to do the marketing, 20k per yr is doable but tedious. Whereas if he got the web building knowledge he can simple hire freelance n over see all the projects. 40k per year by then is not a problem I believe.
