A lot can be said for charging $1000 per page.

I do not do site layouts, but I have done a substantial amount of contract programming doing back-end web work. I am extremely careful to make it completely known in the contract _exactly_ the work I'm going to do and when it'll be done. Literally, it steps through the operation of the web site in very fine detail that says what each page and form submission is going to do along with the components. These things are a lifesaver.

I can't tell you how many times I've had customers want a major change to the site before it goes live and expect me to do it for the contract price. They can't understand why I charge an hourly rate for these changes.
