Freelance Writing Rates: Good for you and the Client

Most freelance writers want to earn as much money as they can. This pretty much holds true for most people regardless of their career. With that being said, you need to make sure that your freelance writing rates are good for both you and your client. In other words, if you are the only one benefiting from your rates you are not going to get far. Sure, you may find some clients, but in the long run it will become difficult to sustain your momentum. Remember, you want to give clients a reason to work with you. And while producing quality work is usually reason enough, fair rates can put you over the top and make you an important asset to any company or webmaster.

Setting freelance writing rates that are beneficial to both you and your clients is never an easy task. This is one area that most newcomers struggle. In fact, I receive emails every week about setting rates and this is one area that my writing course is focusing on in-depth. Obviously, your rates are going to change over time. I charge more now than I did when I started, but even then, my rates are far from set in stone. Simply put, different clients ask for different things. For me, having a set rate for each type of project would be next to impossible. After all, a 500 word article for one client could be much different than a 500 word article for another. Differences can be seen in the topic, research, sources, and much more.

You will know if your freelance writing rates are favoring you or your client. If you are getting a lot of work and being told that your rates are too low, they probably are. But on the other side of things, if every potential client is telling you that your rates are higher than others, you may want to consider a change.

When you find a happy medium, you will see that you are earning a solid income and that your clients feel that they are getting a good deal.
