 Ik depends on what services you will be offering, if it is a large or a smaller project. Before you submit a proposal you should have a very good idea how long you will need for a certain task. 

Often the fixed amount in the proposal is a placeholder and the client expects other offers. 

I suggest when starting out that you apply only to job offers that: 

  • have a very clear description so that you are comfortable with the content and scope of the project
  • you are very confident you can deliver excellent work for
  • are smaller projects so that you can build confidence.
