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.
I am starting my website roygol.com (doesn't have anything in it yet) as I want to promote my MLM opportunity and affiliate products. My main goal is to present my MLM op to those interested.
I do not want to go into the niche of teaching people how to make money online as I see so many doing it.
What would you write on your blog when you haven't even launched your product? I looked at 10 blogs and saw that most of them wrote about 'How they achieved and X metric' (non-relevant to the product), culture and other stuff when the whole idea is to gain more 'beta interests'!
As a marketer, what will you do? In other words, what will be your content marketing strategy?
