What is the cost of a working hour of a designer?

Usually taken for a website design or mobile app 400 Euro, but faced a problem: the customer pulls the rubber, gives long feedback, that constantly changes. This delays the process and those 400 euros are coming in 2-3 weeks that interesting. You have to take other work, well, you understand. Decided to organize this process and to establish some rules, such as an hourly fee with the condition that work on the project is that the complexity is not more than 5 days (10, 20 depends on the complexity). It will be customized for the client because he pays all the time, so it should be quicker to give feedback and payment I will get his when expected.

But I can't figure out, can such a scheme work, how much to charge per hour. What do you say? As you work on a freelance, on what terms, is there any conditional (or set of rules that is shown to the client) ? Thank you all.

What is the price? Someone's and not yours?

Little work - reduce the price.
A lot of work - raise the price.

It will be customized for the client because he pays all the time, so it should be quicker to give feedback and payment I will get his when expected.


No. It will just once again for the customer the opportunity to think to refuse to work with you.

the customer drags out for a long time gives you feedback, that constantly changes.


This is normal. Not only in design.
Hourly fees with paying once a week for the executed part of the work (in hours) - the best way.

Well, if you just wait and don't work the customer just at hourly rate do not need to pay

Yes, complete nonsense!
Who are You to put the client terms?!
I would have immediately sent you with this approach!

1. Show Your work
2. Show those who have paid You so much
3. this is not a problem and for 400 euros - the customer has the right to think!

If done correctly - you can maintain 2 projects in parallel and charge the client only for the actual time spent, not necessarily providing the screenshots of Your working process (via the software https://www.chronolapse.com/, for example).
And how much time he will give the feedback - it is his problem.

A simple comparison: You stand on one side of the forest. Your income is the time it will take you the shortest way through the woods on his other side in a straight line.
The expectation is You met a tree on the way You approached the tree and stand still in front of him until then, until a person tells You he wants to see next.
The work (income) - You go through the forest in a straight line, until, until it encounters another tree on the way.
After waiting, You go around the tree and move on = doing the work.
It now remains to choose the number of options for addressing tree:
1st option - to wait any longer to get the tree and then go further (1 client per unit of time)
2nd option is to have an additional 1 or more ways to bypass wood in stock (2 or more clients per unit of time)

It is better to choose the 2nd option and 2-3 clients depending on the load intensity.
> Who are You to put the client terms?!
Full member of the partnership, the client-contractor.
He is not a slave, and therefore has the right to set conditions for the client, and client to him.

I at once sent a client like you. - otho.Mraz23 commented on July 8th 19 at 16:43
I do not quite understand you portfolio to show? Behance.net/nickostyle.

Don't see problems with 400 euros. Where I live it is a trifle for the design of, say, 20 apps on screens. Which includes planning, prototyping, testing, ui design, animation design, development of icons. So your surprise is incomprehensible to me.

You offer me something that I already have, namely to pull a few projects, and the customer will pay when it deems necessary, because he was very necessary to go on a business trip for 5 days, and I'm not working these days. I agree, I need money 5 days ago, I can't wait the payment for ever. With this approach, the client is relaxed and not paying enough attention to work. To work on multiple projects simultaneously - this is something I want to go. - lucy commented on July 8th 19 at 16:46

But I can't figure out, can such a scheme work

Work. Under such a scheme runs the largest marketplace for freelancers in the world (Upwork).

how much to charge per hour

As long as you both agree.

Work on an advance payment - 100% will solve all your problems, and 50% respectively. half ))

Find a Manager, even routine deals with clients and communicates, and you will increase the amount of work performed, this is assuming that you have from customers no end.

The easiest way to look at upwork'e the cost of the expert with similar qualifications.
Probably will be in the range of 20-40, depending on qualifications.
