A asked me to redo their website. I offered a lower hourly price than my normal hourly because it was a long term project.
Client: Is there any way we could get you full time?
Me: I have other clients, and I wouldn’t be able to do any work for them. They pay more per hour. I’d lose money.
So the client made me a proposal for full time – at $4.00 LESS per hour.
Client: With taxes we’d be paying the same amount per hour, so that would be fair, right?
Me: So in exchange for losing money from my other clients, you’re offering to pay me less?
Client: Yeah, but at full time.
