How To Charge Your Services As A Freelancer?Posted by Ritesh Kamble on November 10, 2021 at 10:45 am
I have been hearing this question from a lot of newbie freelancers, “How should I charge my services as a freelancer?”
Would love to hear your experience and how you price your services as a freelancer. 👇

Hi @Tripod.Guy I am content writer by profession. I started freelancing last year, and to be honest, the journey has been great until now.
Answering to your question, there is no defined way of charging your services. But, the most preferred way to charge as a freelance content writer is PPW (Paise per word). Since, the client demands a limited amount of words in an project. Like say..500 words article or 1000 words article. So, in these scenarios, per word pricing fits the best and the most comfortable way of charging your services.
I started with 30ppw as a newbie because I lacked experience and clients were not willing to provide much. So, I worked for 30-50ppw for few months. But once my present clients started admiring my potential, I started raising the bar and my clients were happy enough to pay me well.
I believe, as a newbie freelancer one should not directly price his/her services very high. Focus on building your network and attracting clients in your initial stages. After that, with some experience in hand, you can definitely charge your worth.

👏👏Rightly said @areeba.k
We can also charge hourly rates. But that seems quite confusing and in India most of the clients don’t prefer to pay freelancers by hourly rates. They either pay per project or per word ( as a writer).

I am an aspiring virtual assistant/freelancer. Based on my experience and from what I know, most freelancers charge their services by an hourly rate or per project basis. It will also depend on what our clients prefer.
