I do appreciate that anyone with a budget needs to know a price. I also like to have a figure up front as it helps to know how much time can be allocated. With this in mind, heres a few simple rules I try to abide by when pricing.
This can consist of design and coding from the ground up. A typical simple page would usually consist of an existing logo and 300-500 words of text (supplied by the client).
Just because a page costs a certain amount, it doesn't mean that each subsequent page costs the same. If every page has the same structure and type of content (text and a few images), the price would reflect this.

I have lots of experience in various content management systems. From experience I have found it is better to allow the Web Designer to update the site but if the client enjoys using technology, I can find a suitable and interesting solution and show you how to use it.
It may be that you would like to show items from your pay pal account, include a video you made on you tube or have an image gallery to show off some of your products. I consider enhancements like this to be 'Modules'. These can range vastly in price, depending on their complexity.
I currently use a third party hosting service called 'Mediatemple' who are among the best in the business with 24/7/365 support. This costs me a fixed fee every year. If a client requires me to setup a domain name and hosting for them, this would cost me money each month/year. I have to pass this onto the client. This would be part of the design process as it doesn't take long if I have the right information.

Anything that requires work which is open ended, falls into this. This usually includes any updates requested by the client, that they feel they cannot achieve. If a client is unsure whether they are likely to 'break' a design by updating themselves, it is often more cost effective to ask me to update for you as once a design is broken, it can take time to rectify.
