Hi jake. my question was in regards to the IT industry as a whole.

I would be a cheaper than the bigger corporate software guys, who i could probably blame for people thinking that a custom software solution (no matter where you go or what you need done) would cost 20-50k.

I don’t think you can blame corporate software people….I think you are better off looking at reality for that :)

A qualified lead software developer generally costs $80k to $120k+ per annum plus other expenses. Add marketing and sales expenses on top of that, and for 20-50k, you get about 4-10 weeks work.

You can’t get much done in that time that would provide any ROI for anyone.

If you think you can do it cheaper I think you’ll find you are doing your calculations wrong.
