I typically charge by the hour but I do try to be as fair as possible as it can vary by the project.
I first address a new customers needs and make sure I understand what they want accomplished. Next I come up with a plan and share all. If all sounds good with customer or should we need to modify anything we can do so and move forward with date and time to get it done.
