I have never in the past designed someone else's website, but only my own and practice websites. I have always generically said, "If you need a website built, ask me" but I do not know how much to charge. What's a rough estimate of the price I should charge for a 5 page static website?

5 page static I would charge Â£50. I base my rates on the type of website, how much work is involved and the company I am doing them for. If they are a large company who will be using the website for commercial use I assume they can afford to pay higher.

If anything will help you there it's the principle of workflow. An efficient system for building a site will allow you to have competitive rates and be fairly compted for your time. Some research into the going rates amature and professional and a comparison of your work to the norm would be the best way to judge your rate. A clean, ordered and well balanced design will probably be your bread and butter. An efficient workflow is your best bet for being able to make money at it. As a side note; it always begins with good communication.

I base any of my work on what the individual content is. Examples, forums? login systems? Jquery plugins? and all kinds of other things that can further complicate a build will only add more time onto what you got to do.
In short, how long will it take you to get it done? then think how much you are prepared to work for per hour (if indeed you are working on an hourly basis)
Just food for thought :)

Typically I charge 15euro a hour, but I also offer a package, 150 for the design, 50 for the CMS 100 for the hosting and coding.. plus I can also make another 50 here and there for logo's and business cards.
I hope this helped you a little. :)
