How do I charge per hour in a legit way when building someone's website?
I am now starting to get a slow but steady stream of clients now from my freelancing, and I'm kind of on the fence on how I should charge.
I was at first doing "packages" which had certain price sets for a specific number of pages.
Now I'm thinking of possibly switching to a hourly pay while I work on the project. My question is, how can I let my clients know that I am not trying to cheat them or anything by falsifying my hours. Example. I spent 2 hours designing the layout of their site, but a dishonest person will say "I spent 4 hours designing this for you."
See where I'm going with this?
How does this work when there is literally no time clock to punch in with?
Thanks in advance.
