I did not take him seriously so I thought I would have a little fun and tell him a price I believed no one would pay for one simple article. I told him I would charge one hundred dollars for a thousand word article for his website. I figured I would never see him again and I thought he would think the price outrageous.
He simply looked at me and said "is that it". I kid you not; I was a little scared to go on figuring he would think it was too much. But he told me he was use to paying several hundreds of dollars for content and that my price was bargain basement.
I'm beginning to think that offline holds some good possibilities and I am looking into it. Has anyone else here had stories where they told someone a price offline thinking it was too high, only to find out that they saw your price as being too cheap?
I think sometimes we stay online so much that we think our rates are normal, sometimes we forget there are people who have never heard of elance or the warrior forum. There are people who do not know they can have articles written for a small amount of money. What do you guys think?
