Me: My estimate for this work is 3-5 hours at £50 per hour. Does that work for you?
Client: Yes that’s fine please proceed.
Me: Here’s my proposal.
Client: You’re quoting us between £150 and £250. That’s quite a jump from £50 originally quoted…
I sent a screenshot of our previous conversation, highlighting that I quoted £50 at 3-5 hours.
Client: Oh I didn’t read properly. Thanks but no thanks in that case.
So he thought I was quoting him £50 for a five-hour job? Facepalm
