How To Price Your Freelance Work
Congrats! You’re ready to start freelancing but you’re not sure how to price your services as a freelancer.
If you’re new here, my name is Jennifer Sargeant and I am the creator of Digital Sargeant and Freelance & Financial Freedom Blueprint (F&FFB). F&FFB is a group coaching program where I guide freelancers through the trenches of freelancing – taking them from zero to confidentially freelancing and on a path to a 6-figure income.
Questions with the theme of pricing your services as a freelancer are one of the most popular questions in social media marketing and digital marketing Facebook Groups.
Pricing as a freelancer will vary depending on where you live (the amount of money you need to pay your bills), your experience level, and the type of project in question (micro-project or a long-term project, for example).
When it comes to pricing, it’s not a one-size-fits-all situation. Every freelancer will price differently BUT the price will be an average meeting the benchmarks above.
Let’s talk about hourly rates when it comes to freelancing. I don’t recommend being transparent with your hourly rate or with how long it would take you to complete a project. This quickly opens a conversation of having to defend your rate and your time.
Instead, use an hourly rate as a benchmark for YOU.
A great way to get your hourly rate is to take an industry average of your experience level and skill set compared to the market positions/jobs. Then, reverse engineer this average into an hourly rate for you.
In Freelance & Financial Freedom Blueprint, I coach freelancers through the trenches of freelanching, tackling topics such as determining an hourly rate as a freelancer, using a formula and a strategy that I created to logically determine my freelancing rate.
Digital Sargeant was launching at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020 with the sole mission to replace missing income. Digital Sargeant went from a start-up freelancing business to a small agency. Now, I share my strategies and systems with other freelancers in Freelance & Financial Freedom Blueprint.
