Freelance News Freelance Opportunities

Imagine you are a freelance developer and you want to raise your rates. I got a question today about my billing rate, so whether it’s real or not and I found a few questions like this. I just want to say upfront that when I say something or do something or do something like if I post on my blog post or if it’s on a marketing message or an email or something, it’s generally true. When I first started out I think I was charging like $30 or $40 an hour and to me that was really, really good. I had gotten this one contract where I was charging $100 an hour and I said, “Wow, this is crazy how—I can’t believe someone would pay me $100 an hour.” Then I heard of people that were charging more than that like $200 an hour. As I started marketing myself and building up the reputation in the industry I started raising my rates and I got to the point of charging $300 an hour and the first time I threw that out to a client and they didn’t even blink. They didn’t try to negotiate me down. They just signed the check. It took some time to get to there and I can understand the scepticism about it, but honestly, and I’ll tell you this right now, just this last couple of weeks was the first start time I started turning down people at $300 an hour because it’s not worth it.
