I have a potential client from USA, and I live in another country. I would like to know (an average price in dollars), how much a graphic/web designer would charge per hour for maintaining the website (the website is already done). I hope you can help me!

    USA is a pretty big place i would expect the cost to vary wildly.

    Nobody will be able to give you a reasonably objective answer without knowing your personal circumstances, business model etc. An average price is useless. The answer here is very appropriate: What price should I charge for design services?

  • @CAI I think that second link is more relevant for closing this question as a duplicate.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the Average Hourly Wage for a full-time Graphic Designer in Miami, FL is $20.68

For a contract you should expect to pay at least double if not triple that. They have to support their overhead, taxes, insurance, and make enough profit to still live. When I lived in Miami I started negotiations around $60/hr.

This is for Graphic Design. If you're hiring someone to do coding then it will go up substantially well into the $100/hr range.
