How much are your services worth?
One of the hardest tasks as a freelance copywriter is working with the money side of things. It’s a shame, because for all of the job satisfaction and wonderful clients, it’s the money that matters.
If you’re not getting paid, you may as well quit copywriting and write your world-changing novel or script!
But negotiating a good deal with no experience is tough. Some extra advice can help you to organise your thoughts, set a price, and know how to get the copywriting fee you deserve, or the terms that suit you.
HomeForBusiness is an excellent resource, designed around the needs of new start-ups in any industry. The articles, newsletters and free resources on the site are tailored to people that work from home, but are valuable to just about anyone who runs their own business.
Recently, I contributed a guest article to the site – Don’t Undersell Yourself – Negotiate a Better Deal.
The article was written drawing on my experiences as a freelance copywriter, but applies to any freelancer who wants to maximise their revenue and grow their business – without compromising on customer relationships.
