How much is Divi ThemeWhat's Divi Theme?
Decide how much you need to charge for your Divi Web Design Services.
Welcome to part 2 of 4 of our miniseries Divi Website Development Pricing, where we examine Divi's efficient website pricing classes and provide some viable ways for you to evaluate your web development service. Last night we reviewed some avarage pricing classes for small and large Divi web designer build.
However, it's still up to you to find out how much you want to bill for your specific web site service. Your price determination still depends largely on all variable aspects of the overall web development process to deliver a winning web designing adventure for you and a good ROI for your customer.
This article will go through some tips and tricks that will help you decide your best pricing point! In the end, your pricing has to work for 3 things: Yours - Your pricing must work for your company with all the additional costs in the back of your head. Items such as tax, tool and plugin subscription, management softwares, trader accounts transactions costs, offices, etc. all need to be taken into consideration when it comes to how much you bill.
Sending a $2,000 bill means I know I'm not putting it all in my pocket, and I have to make sure my pricing makes me a worthwhile one. Their life-style - their tariffs must tune for their life-style. As I began my web designing career, I was singles and had a low rental rate.
And I was also unexperienced and not nearly as precious as I am now, so my rates were lower and rightly so. Now with a woman, a hypothecary, invoices and a gold retriever who needs to be constantly maintained, my rates must sustain not only my store but also my way of life. Their customers - your tariffs must function for your customers.
It is a bit more complicated because different customers have different costs and some are willing to spend more than others. If you increase your prices, it is possible that you will eliminate some of the low, inexpensive customers. However, you can also loose some of your good, high value customers.
As a Divi Web designer you should preferably expand and evolve, you will be more valued and better at attracting customers, but it is important to be able to flexibly respond to your good customers and their real promotional and promotional spending. I am not fast enough to serve smaller customers who have a more restricted website building budgets, because this sometimes results in a very successful partnership and often results in recommendations to larger customers.
Also, if an ideals customer cannot buy my original suggestion, I will often cut out some service from the original builds or provide a "Phase I" options for the customer to get closer to the projects in phases. Having these 3 things in the back of your head, let's look at some ways that will help you find out how much you should charge!
It is recommended that you set an annual target of what you want to do with your Divi web site development company and then share it by the number of monthly and website visits you need to achieve this target. For example, if you want to earn $50,000/year, that's $4,167 per month, $1,042 per weekly.
Thus, you can either schedule to create a $3,000 and a $1,000 website on a monthly basis, or $2,000 pages, or $2,000 or $4,000 1,000 pages, etc.. Though you can't readily schedule which large scale project and customers will find your way, you will at least have a target you can review every quarter or so to ensure that your pricing point and number of finished project matches your budget targets.
I am happy that I usually have a constant flow of small to large scale jobs from months to months, but sometimes I work on 4 smaller pages or 1 or 2 bigger pages from months to months. Seems to balance everything out as you continue your web development careers.
With my maintenance/safety plans, I also have a passively earned salary that comes from months to months and help me achieve my objectives. To have an earnings target for your web designing service is important for designer on all levels! You can also use the above methodology to determine your best rates per hour.
So if you want to beat around 50K/yr and work around 40hrs per work week on the average, split $1,042 by 40 and that's your rates per work hour. Your tariff in this case should be between $25-$30 per lesson. Remember, though, if you own our own Divi Web Design company, you won't be spending countless technical "profitable" moments.
" You will have discussions, phone conversations, administration times, training on new plug-ins and utilities, and your company's own sales and distribution - that's all the times you generally don't have to pay your invoices and take into account when you think about your rates. Thus you can consider increasing your rates by 20-30% per hour, according to how often you do your work per hour to balance the amount of working days that do not pay the bill but are still needed.
The next article will look at this in more detail as a way of charging for complete web designing engagements, but I usually calculate at a set fee. My rates are only used for fast or one-time work for my customers. Having a set salary allows me to potentially earn 3 or 4x what I could do for my per hour salary if I designed the site so much quicker.
However, regardless of this, finding out your per-hour fee is a great yardstick that can be used either for complete website build or one-time project and fast work to ensure that you meet your budget targets. By the way: Webdesign fees (at least in my area and in the USA) are on avarage $25-$45 at the lower end and $75-$150 at the upper end.
Therefore my customers are in a wide range of what they are willing to spend for my work. Website designing here may not be as costly on avarage in comparison to places like L.A., Chicago, New York, etc., but it certainly isn't at the bottom either. A few customers can and should anticipate paying higher end rates for web designing service, and some are even afraid of my lower end rates.
I have found a fairly sound place in the medium to higher midrange of the web price series. To get a heartbeat about what is regarded as "cheap" or "expensive" in your vicinity and in the sector of your perfect customers is the best starting point to determine your price structures. Often you can look for annual estimations of web site costs in your area on-line.
My aim is to make sure that I remain payable to my perfect customers, but also not to scrape the bottom of the keg with my point of sale. On the other hand, the smaller offer sent me an e-mail, insulted and angry that I would suggest such a high rate. Of course, I knew that an incumbent healthcare company would have to spend more on a new website than a locally based one.
I was not prepared to accept my already reduced price for this kind of "nightmare client". "But my point is that you may have to adapt your prices and adapt them to the customer, his sector and what works for him. While you' re still running a profit-making operation.
It is a favorite web designing buisness paradigm to follow a particular branch and provide service only to companies in this area. While I find this approach somewhat restrictive and personal, I don't know anyone who has a winning web designing firm for just one line of work, but the attitude of recruiting and retaining your "ideal" customer is very precious.
To me, small business or deals with a $300 dollar purse are not perfect and on the other hand, neither are large corporations that want a massively built web site that is better suited to a large staff or a large agent. Therefore, I suggest you get to know your customers and research what works for them and what they can look forward to.
Well, I was hoping these brainstorming sessions were helpful in helping you determine or re-evaluate your Divi Web Design Business rates! The one thing you should keep in mind is that your price structure should directly match the value you offer your customers and your Divi and WordPress skills. If you' re growing and becoming more precious, you should do it!
Your prices should work for your company, your life style and your customers.
