I have been content writing for about 2 years now, mostly on freelancing services such as freelancer and odesk. After working my back off two years I realized that I am being under payed for my services.
That is when I decided that it's time to call it quits and head for greener pastures. I did some research on WF and acquired some knowledge about the rates.
I am quite confident that I have skills enough to be rightly charging $2.5/100 words but according to the norms (mainly set by Asian countries with low cost of living), the rates appear to be on the high end of the spectrum.
My question is, what should I be charging my clients ?
I am looking for a rate high enough that they help me concentrate on my writing without compromising the integrity and the quality of the written materials and low enough that it keeps me in business.
All answers and suggestions will be appreciated.
