In one of my last projects, I charged 400 USD for a 10.000 words project, this is a 0.04 rate per word, I know that is significantly low compared to what others copywriters are charging, but thats my main problem, how do I know when im ready to increase my rates? And how do I communicate that to my clients?
When I started earlier this year, I charged 60 USD for a similar project, extremely little, but I was so happy about it, since then my rates has clearly increased, but I still think there is much more room for improvement.
It will really help me if you tell me your experiences with this, how much are you charging? Are you charging now the same rates that you charged when you began? How did you know it was time to increase your rates?
Any advice you could give me would really be appreciated.
