Contract Daily

Contract Daily

£300~ with flexibility for remote and part-time.

I believe in being as up-front as possible and letting my clients know exactly what to expect.

To this end, I've outlined some ballpark costs and my hourly rates.

This should help give you an idea of what I cost and if we can work together.

PLEASE NOTE: This page can be subject to change depending upon the state of the market, my pricing strategy or my perceived value. Active quotes will not be affected by my changes here.


Intent

The intent of this section is to provide a fair pricing structure for you, respect my own time and ensure any charges incurred are covered.

When a project is properly funded, not only am I a very happy boy, but you don't get cut corners, just a quality end result.

The overall intent is to ensure that happens so that everybody wins.


Hourly Rate

Contracting

My desired day rate for contracting (8hr days) is £300~.

This is slightly higher than hourly due to the implied time commitment and other expenses.

I'm open to negotiation on this. The more flexible the working conditions (remote, part-time etc.) the more flexible I can be on price.

Hourly Rate Increases

My rate increases depending upon different circumstances, these will only kick in if you request these options.

The rate increase stacks on top of each other in the order displayed here.

Charge Increase
1. Long-term/regular on-site work 1.2x
2. Out of regular hours (8am-6pm) 1.5x
3. Emergency (i.e drop everything) 3x

Surcharges

I have a few surcharges for different expenses.

The 'Fuel & Upkeep' rate is based upon the government guidelines for mileage and fuel rates.

'Misc. Expenses' are costs accrued during the job. Accomodation, transport tickets, equipment, software etc.

Surcharge Amount
Travel time Current rate per/hour
Fuel & Upkeep 45p/mile
Misc. Expenses Amount charged to me.

People per Hour & Worksome

My rates are different on my worksome and People per Hour profiles.

This is done to cover the commission fees added by these sites.


Rough Ballparks

This section isn't intended to serve as a complete guide or as a list of fixed costs as every project is different.

Using portfolio items (only ones I own the copyright to) I'm going to give you an example of how long these projects might take and how much they would have cost.

All example here are done using bespoke work from scratch, when actually working on a project I have templates and pre-built systems I use to reduce costs.

These costs assume 8 hour days.

Asteroid Deathmatch Website £240, 8 Hours

Asteroid Deathmatch Website

Asteroid Deathmatch Website £240, 8 Hours

This one is an interesting case, as I've actually got a Fiverr gig set up for this type of site.

The Fiverr gig is much lower in cost compared to creating this from scratch, as this gig is done (mostly) via a set template and automated scripts I've created. This allows these sites to be done for cheap and knocked out in less than a day, the perfect product for the Fiverr format (in my opinion).

The original site, content, and template took about 8 hours to complete. Making it's bespoke cost £240.

Time: 8 hours

Cost: £240

That's right, it's getting meta. I'm talking about this very website, excluding content writing and graphic design (I outsourced for this).

This website was made using Bolt CMS and Bootstrap with customization via SASS.

The time taken to create a brief, create the theme, setting up the content types and testing with sample content was about 2.5 weeks~.

I also have a Fiverr gig setup for websites.

Time: 2.5 weeks~

Cost: £3000~
