I have started my own consultancy business and have been asked to do two things for a client:
- Provide assistance around how to manage data in an existing system
- Provide training around database development
The client definitely wants both of these options carried out and, at first glance, I would think that option 1 would warrant an hourly rate and option 2 would warrant a daily rate.
In terms of what to charge per hour / day (consulting) / day (training), I am rather uncertain as I cannot find any guidance as to what the typical rates tend to be - what do experienced data consultants charge in such instances?
Although, the more I think about it, the more uncertain I become - what tends to be the case in such scenarios and what questions should I ask myself?
