Default Odesk Hourly rate

OK I am for the first time looking into Odesk and I'm creating a profile. One of the first question I come to is what do I charge? I'm never sure where to go with this one. I've been in the IT field for many year. When doing contract work as systems and network support I always charged between $95 and $125 an hour. On the other hand when doing the same work as an employee the going rate seems to be around $35/hr. Now obviously this is different work than web design or graphics. While I have been working with web design and graphics for years it has always been for my own sites and my own projects. I know years ago I used to do graphics for t-shirt screen printing and for that work I would charge $35/hr. Just off hand I'm thinking this may be a suitable hourly rate for both graphics and web design/ site creation layout and design.

Would appreciate any thoughts on this. Anyone's personal experience.

AFAIK, $35/hr is around the norm for this industry (web design).

Thank you , I appreciate the input. I looked at some other contractors on their system doing the same kind of work and I'm seeing anything from $15 /hr to $45 /hr. This seems kind of a big spread sort of puzzling, really.

It is puzzling, unfortunately. You'll run into the same problem with programming, design, writing... it's a mess. My quote is based on the core reasoning behind outsourcing (hiring individuals such as yourself), and that's to remove the cost of maintaining an in-house employee. Nothing more, nothing less.

Good luck!

Just keep in mind there are many variables when hiring someone. First people are attracted to price. But very quickly they realize communication, efficiency and design skill is even more important. So first you want to create a reputation and clientele, afterwards you can adjust your fee accordingly.

Overwhelmed with information overload on Internet Marketing??? I hear you!!!
