Wow, what a day. I think I FINALLY got things working but my brain is TIRED!!!
Or not enough?
When you are a freelancer, you set your own prices. There’s no boss to give you a raise, and no HR manager to negotiate your salary with.
Getting your first couple freelance jobs is exhilarating. Someone is trusting YOU with their business, putting their brand in YOUR hands. It’s easy to feel like you are the lucky one. They hired ME? But I’ve only been doing this for a few months!
Even so, didn’t you start this whole freelancing thing so you could up your income? But how can you avoid lowballing your client if you aren’t sure what fees are standard in the industry?
When it comes to setting your freelance rates, there’s no one-size-fits-all. There are so many questions to consider: How long will the project take? Is the client a breeze to work with? (or not?) How much money do you need to make to turn a profit? How much experience do you have?
