Whatever hourly rate they’d reasonably bill you put at - 30%

^and multiply that by 8 for your daily rate. Rules of thumb

Do you have some ridiculously fascinating background that would warrant a title of SME? Bc I have been on projects like this where we billed 5 HRs weekly for the SME just to chat and get advice on industry best practices - then be able to tell the client we consulted someone highly reputable and tell them the SMEs background. We billed their time at a partner rate, I’ll tell ya that - even though they were just a director or MD

@SC1, yes :)

In 2015, we billed someone like this to the client at ~500/hr. Milk em dry OP

How do you guys schedule your hours? Say I need to hit 200 hours per month. Currently I take the amount of working days in a month (M-F) and divide it by 200 to get how many hours I need to bill per day. For example, May has 20 working days, so I need to bill 10hrs./day M-F. I’ve done exactly that thus far and have been able to stick to a pretty consistent schedule. But I know a lot work on weekends. For instance, if I worked Saturdays too there are 25 billable days which means 8hrs/day.
