What do I charge?

By aronya1 ·

I'm hoping to get some constructive input from those of you who have experience in this area. I'm going to be meeting for the first time with a new client, who wants me to do an emailing to their existing client base.

There are plenty of software programs out there that will handle the job, so that shouldn't be an issue. Also, I can handle putting together the piece's content.

My question is this; This is my first time attempting to do this, and I have no clue what the going rate is. What/how do I charge for the mailing? Per piece? Per confirmed delivery? I'm not looking to retire off the first job, but I don't want to give away the farm, either. Any suggestions?

Any help would be appreciated.

I do various computer tech work and I have worked a little with bulk E-Mailing. The job sounds pretty simple to do, but your client probably does not know that. I would charge at around $100/hour for the setup hoever long it takes. Then based on how many E-Mails the client wants I would charge accordingly. If you get the right program it won't matter if you have 100 E-Mails or 10,000 the difficulty would be the same. If there aren't very many you probably couldn't ask too much for the job 100<. I would get at least a couple hundred out of it. If there are 10,000 plus then charge a lot more they don't need to know the difficulty.

OK, thanks for the input. And, since you're the only one who bothered, you get the points! Don't spend 'em all in one place.
