I'm new to the freelance world and trying to figure out a price estimate for writing a business plan for a client. I'm still in the information gathering phase, but I was wondering if others have had experience writing business plans for clients and what you may have charged. I'm anticipating the whole project to be about 10-20 pages with possibly some minimal background reading/research. I've set my hourly rate to $75 but would likely provide a fixed rate for the project. I'm thinking $1,000-1,500 (but not sure if this is too low?). I would love to hear how others have handled similar projects!
