Don’t undervalue your service and experience, you will be amazed to find out how much some businesses are willing to pay for it.
Be honest and estimate a reasonable timeline based on your experience and enable your client to go live earlier than other designers' estimations. That’s what will prove your value as a Designer, not a surprise early delivery.
Ask questions to understand the client, business goals, competition, problems, the VALUE and offer your solution based on that, not on your hour.
