About the article

Every now and then, I'll have someone who contacts me, seems keen to build a project with me, and then baulks when they see my rates. This may sound like I'm over-charging, but my rates are actually relatively low for a web developer. If you engaged my services while I was working for an agency, you should expect to be charged anywhere from 150-250% of my hourly rate to get, essentially, the same service.
