Thanks for the suggestions for pricing on the owners manual. I incorporated
most in my bid for the job, about which, I have not yet heard.
Another question...New client is a small ad agency in Arkansas. I've just
completed two small jobs for which I billed $25/hour ($300 total). They are
suggesting an on-going relationship (probably similar assignments monthly),
but would prefer a flat fee. I would like to develop a regular relationship
(spell that: I-need-the-work), and am therefore open to the idea.
Having considered the possibilities of long-long assignments, short-short
assignments, research-intensive assignments, and familiar themes, I am
thinking of a number between $200 and $400 per assignment.
So, have I missed anything? Any thoughts or suggestions?
