A Brief Guide To Help You Stop Leaving Money On The Table
How Much Do I Charge?
This is the most common question I hear from people who are freelancing or people that are considering it. To address this problem, I’ve put together a free eBook called the “Freelance Pricing Handbook”. It’s a quick read designed to help you learn how to approach how to charge for your services.
Changing how you charge for your services can have a huge impact on your bottom line. Here is chart from a point in my career when I started repositioning my services and changed how I was billing clients. I don’t want to be too open with numbers, so I’ve scaled this chart, where 1 = how much I invoiced in my first month of freelancing:
That nearly 200% increase in revenue that happens? That’s from implementing a new billing structure. I didn’t change what I was doing, but I changed how I was presenting my value to clients.
Great free eBook on freelance pricing. Applies to video folks as much as tech folks.http://t.co/8ZgaFb4p7b
