This week I have spent time focusing on freelance writing rates. It’s a good topic to cover, and one that many people struggle with.
It’s something that I struggled with, and now I really don’t mind it. When someone asks me how much I charge, I don’t sit there a few minutes doing my best goldfish impression.
In case you missed any of my posts this week, here they are in my weekly roundup.
Tuesday: Setting Your Freelance Writing Rates
Actually setting your initial rate is usually the hardest part of the job. You want to set a rate that you’re happy with, covers all your expenses and will not scare clients off at the same time.
Just how do you do all that?
Well, that’s what Tuesday’s post was all about, and you can read that right here.
Thursday: Per Word, Per Project or Per Hour?
There are three ways to set your freelance writing rates. You can do it by the word, by the project or by the hour. Which is best for you?
Thursday’s post here covered each one in turn to help you decide the best one for your specific needs.
Friday: Raising Your Rates
You need to raise your freelance writing rates at times. You may not want to, but you don’t always have a choice. But that doesn’t mean you have to do it a lot.
Friday’s post covered the main times you will really want to consider raising your rates. You can read it here.
Next week is Christmas, but that doesn’t mean this blog is disappearing! I’m going to cover a bit more on freelance writing rates because it really is a big topic. See you next week and if you don’t stop by before next Thursday, I hope you have a great Christmas!
