Question Charging clients fairly

I usually charge my clients hey percentage of their total budget of a project, but I don't know how to charge a client who just wants advice. Sometimes my clients just want me to tell them where to hang their projects, where to move the furniture, and how high to hang pictures. What is the best way to charge for this type of work?

A certain amount, for the first hour, and an hourly consulting fee, for more time?

You could charge an hourly fee or a set price for a two or three hour consult.

Figure out your daily rate, then determine yur half day and wuarter day rate. Pretty simple.

Id never advice basing your pricing on someone else's price. You dont know their expensies, overhead, staffing, experience, or whether they are even profitable. Always make your business plan (whch includes yur pricing) based on your own business not someone else's.
