Is $150 too much or too little to charge for putting together a website?

I've done a couple of websites and some coding before, but never out of the job, so this will be my first real freelance job. Thing is, I'm not sure what's a fair price. It'll be for a martial arts website showcasing athletes (pictures and blurb), with a blog, shop (already on bigcartel), tips, and embedding videos. This site won't really be getting much money in... just mainly to update people. The client already has a site up, but it's very simple, which is why he wanted someone to help make it a little more fancy with flash. NOW, the thing is, I will be using wix.com because it's fast, customizable, and easy for clients to update. Since I'm barely doing coding (very minimal) and mostly just using the template editor that Wix has, would $150 be a fair price to charge for putting the website together? Is that too little or too much? The client knows that this is my first freelance job, so I don't know what to say. but I did say that I could get it done within a week if I work on it a few hours a day (after I get off work). I've built a similar website before within the same time frame, except it was for my job so I just got paid the same hourly. Help, anyone? @n!ch0 : Not offensive at all. You were very helpful. Thank you! I actually do know a bit on how to build websites (I first started in 1998 using HTML and Javascript) and then later used Dreamweaver to work with CSS. My job is actually in advertising and I mainly do graphics and photos. However, since I'm limited on time, I just want to use Wix since it's quick and has all the capabilities that the client is expecting. So I guess I'd just be charging for my time... so maybe you're right... $150 might be a little too much. Thank you for the tips!

id say if its a flash requiring it would be more than that like 400 cheapest but otherwise 250 so too little

for an inexperienced builder (as in, not professional) i'd say an hourly rate of $20 seems proper to me. So yeah I'd say it's fair (depending on the end result of course).
