Or you could do what I do, which is break your own back for free. I may break even on a site which will probably work out to about three weeks work, but I don't expect to. It's CV material at least I suppose, and I didn't know javascript/xhtml/css very well beforehand.

How big is it?
Is it a complete redesign & build?
What will it use? (Flash, PHP, ASP?)
Do you require Hosting? URL?
Search Engine submission?
What do you think they can afford?

Process:

Proposal: Just a basic outline of what you propose to do with the site
Detailed Functional Spec: What, Where, How, Why & How much.

Gett he client to sign off on the above before even begining work as this will tie them to costs, spec and timelines.

Costs, To give you a rough idea for a basic site, like http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/socialpolicy, this cost them 500 (bloody good deal)

You have two options, hourly rate, or fixed project costs?

Hourly Rate: (Based on mine) 35.00ph Design, basic build, 75.00ph, backend, Flash etc. 18.00ph for fixes, testing & Changes.

Fixed cost: (again based on mine) 275 per day for design and build, 500 per day, back end etc. Changes at 100 per day.
