Cathy Goodwin Hi Shari,

I'm just north of you in Seattle and I really appreciated your posting, especially when you wrote, "By far, the great majority of people who need good copy either don't have the money, or don't understand the value."

At recent networking events I heard:

"If you're charging that much you must be targetng millionaires" (when I gave a ballpark number after someone gave me *their* ballpark for a different service)

"Copywriters charge by the hour, don't they?"

"You're going to limit your earnings if you list yourself as a copywriter."

So I'm probably going to give up "live" networking and stay on the web, where I have room to explain that I charge not just for copy, but for strategy and message too. I don't compete with eLance.

I'd love to hear what others think.
