10 Factors That Should Go Into Your Pricing As A Freelancer

Pricing your services as a freelancer can be challenging. Freelancing is a new industry for everyone. Freelancers don’t know how to price their services well, and clients don’t know how to pay freelancers well. As much as I wish there was a magical formula I could share with you today, I don’t have that. I am going to break down ten factors you can use to determine your freelance pricing.

Here’s the thing, you have so much power over what you charge. It’s up to a particular client to figure out if your talents are worth that price to them. You want to keep pricing as consistent as possible for the sake of being honest, but it’s okay to vary the cost depending on your skills and what the client needs. Keep working, keep standing in your pricing truth, and I know you will get there.

Let’s get started with ten factors that should go into your pricing as a freelancer.

What You Need To Know About Value-Based Pricing As A Freelancer

Pricing is a tough debate when you are a beginner freelancer. How much do you charge for the work that you do? What will someone be willing to pay? It can be very daunting because there is no standard in this industry. Everyone has a rate that they hold near and dear. My rate fluctuates between .10 and .20 cents per word depending on the client. I am always trying to find ways to charge more in hopes that I will get a yes and be able to charge higher rates. I’ve dealt with low-paying clients in the past, but I am all about focusing on higher paying clients now.

Today, I wanted to talk about value-based pricing. We don’t think about this way of pricing our services much. Most of us have been raised to think about work in an hourly fashion. I work 40 hours per week and I make a certain number per hour, right? This kind of thinking won’t help you much when it comes to freelancing. Instead, you should be charging based on the value that you provide your clients. While an hour of your time might be worth $50, the work you are doing is worth much more for the client!
