2 Questions: Turn around time & Rush fees


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have two quick questions:

 

Turn Around Time

What is your average turn around time for you to finish a website?

What time estimate do you give your clients?

 

Rush Fees

How much extra would you charge a client who needs you to rush a job?

Lets say they want it done in half your normal time.

 

Thanks,

This is a highly variable question - what kind of website are you describing, pure XHTML/CSS with little scripting and no server side material or a full blown PHP driven portal with bell's and whistles?

 

Flush out the spec first then create your estimate around how long it will genuinely take you to write solid code; then add 20% for a buffer.

 

Beware of client that are over eager to have goods delivered in a rush - this can mean trouble. If this might be an exception to that rule and you feel you can accommodate the work - charge time + a half in the understanding you are going to be working outside your normal business process to make the delivery date.

 

Just some ideas.

Thanks, my site is (as you put it) xhtml/css with little scripting, no server side languages or portals.

 

Also time and a half seems reasonable, I don't charge hourly just a flat fee.
