How Do Creative Freelancers Know How Much to Charge?

08/02/2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Freelance Forum August 2 MEETING

What’s the Best Way to Set Rates?

Do Experienced Freelancers Know
Something That You Don’t?

When: Thursday, August 2, 6:30 PM
Where: Professional Photo Resources, Inc
667 11thStreet NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

Should you set rates based on the type of project, or the quality of your past experience?
Do you work by the hour, or negotiate an upfront project fee?
If you think you’re worth more, WHY AREN’T YOU CHARGING MORE?

Every freelancer agonizes over questions like these. Wouldn’t you like to know what other freelancers think?

Don’t Miss our Next Atlanta Freelance Forum Meeting!

Eventbrite - How Do Creative Freelancers Know How Much to Charge?

At our next meeting, the Freelance Forum will host a panel discussion about setting rates and getting paid. How much is fair? Who deserves a raise? What’s the industry average? At what point do you complain about “scope creep?”

And don’t worry—we’re going to have a wide range of creative services represented, so everyone will be included in the discussion.

Are there specific skills that are in high demand? Classes we can take or certifications we can get to make us more marketable?

At the Freelance Forum, it's all Business Casual – until we get down to business.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.

Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.

So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
