Rethinking your rates? Here are some things to keep in mind

Advice / Tips & Tricks Friday, October 23, 2020
Something most of us freelancers dread more than spiders is talking about money, and more specifically, our rates. For whatever reason we play it close to the chest when discussing what we charge clients, how we charge clients, and so on. Likely because we’ve heard plenty of stories about, or experienced firsthand, a client going with someone cheaper than us. I think a major issue with the freelance industry is this internal distrust, where we assume other freelancers will steal our clients if they have any information about us and what we charge for our services. One of my goals with the educational content we create is to have open, honest discussions about things like what to charge. And hopefully the more we talk about these things the less of a stigma there will be on them, and we can all focus on providing great freelance services rather than distrusting one another, and we can all focus on our common enemy: spiders.
