What's your average cost to clients to develop a PowerPoint presentation, probably 10-12 slides?
A client of mine is asking me to develop a PowerPoint presentation for his business to present to his clients, based off of an existing presentation. I will use some of the content, and probably condense and rearrange other pieces. I charge an hourly rate for presentation development, but I'm curious what kind of time it takes other consultants out there to develop this sort of presentation? Thanks in advance!
I think it really depends on a few things. First would be your hourly rate; what you personally believe you should get for doing said presentation. The second would be the amount of time you believe it would take to create it. Also take into account possible numbers of concepts, revisions and extra wiggle room (if needed) for further consultation. The third would definitely be the amount of content your client provides, as well as whether or not it's finalized. I've had clients for these sorts of projects that would give me content and images, and then we'd either need to edit the content or find/create new images!
With all of that said, these presentations are very much a custom thing. Depending on what I said above, I'd make the ballpark based on that. Maybe even consider the size of the client too.
Hope this helps! Feel free to message me if you have any other questions!
Hello Jessica Federman,
It varies as per the requirement, which we quote around 100-150$. Hope this helps to calculate your time.
If you're CERTAIN you have all the information and don't need to create any original art, it's a whole lot simpler, as I'm sure you know.
Assuming 10 "real" slides (10 + opening/closing), I'd probably quote $300 or so. This rate is rock bottom and assumes ALL of the data/information is already in the original deck. The moment you have to start playing analyst or looking up information, creating new from scratch, etc., the price should go up. Assuming you have the original and know it's simply a reworking, charge what your time is worth.
That being said, reworking decks can be the stickiest scenario for pitch/proposal work. We often get incorrect numbers, completely wrong information, etc. We have to choose - stamp our name on something grossly off base OR explain to the client their simple math is wrong. It's tough. We try to specify "using information provided by YOU" verbiage when quoting, and include a clause specifying how change orders will be handled. I know it seems silly for such a tiny project, but we've been buried by these before.
