100 an hour? I have a story about this actually: I wanted to redo my whole site, so I paid for squarespace and started trying to learn. I got frustrated and decided to use their design services, so I wrote to some folks. They wanted to charge 150, 250 an hour, or a 2500 flat rate. That sounded so high to me that I pushed through and learned it on my own, and it was super easy and fun. I never emailed them back. So the moral is, you have to find the price where your client feels like theyre paying for expertise and time saved, but not so much that they want to look into what it really takes to do it themselves, because with squarespace it isnt very much. 😃

Or you got someone to help you, like perhaps an AD partner? ;)

When i used to do this with WP templates, I'd change 1k to 1.5k. You have to feel out your client and what type of tinkering with the code you might want.

I’ve done 2000-2500 with a $50 an hour future maintenance on the site. That fee usually covers 5 pages.
