Discussion on: How I went from charging $100 to $10,000+ for a website

Thanks for your comment, but I disagree. I have never worked with a business owner who didn't directly care about their income (i.e. "money that comes in").

Mind you, I'm not working with the Apples and Amazons of the world, but small US-based business owners.

Sonmez discusses an hourly rate, which is something you rarely see in web development project contracts. Hourly rates don't make sense in this context because I may as well take 40 hours to complete a 10 hour task. A client would never allow that. Freelancing is about product delivered, not hours worked.
