Q&A: Do you charge a deposit for new projects? How much?

Another topic fromĀ last week’s episode about getting paid was the deposit on a new project. The more your getting paid up front, the closer you are moving to a positive cash flow.

So how much do you charge up front? 25%, 50%, or maybe even the full cost of the project? Tell us about your approach on deposits.



Q&A: Do you charge by the hour or use a flat project fee?

One of the topics we discussed in this week’s episode was charging by the hour versus charging a flat fee for a website project. Mike and I revealed that we typically go with an hourly fee, while Brian charges clients a flat project fee.

So we want to know how YOU price and bill your projects. Hourly? Flat fee? Or something else like a percentage of profit? Let us know!
