Hello Everyone:

I have finally decided to take my writing to the next level and start seriously freelancing. However, I am unsure about rates, advertising and a bit scared of the whole process. Any advice for a beginner? Much appreciated.

I need someone to write articles and press releases. As well as an ebook. ASAP!. I can just say that right now I pay $75 for a press release and anywhere from $10-$20 per article depending on word count. Let me know when you fine tune your pricing.

Do you have any samples?

Welcome Nyvia!

You will find that the fees for copywriting services are all over the pay scale. You really need to find the area that you will be marketing to and then charging what the maarket will bear. I do think that if you find a particular niche, ie--health, financial, etc, that you can actually specialize in then you can command a higher fee.

Not sure this is at all helpful but again, it truly does matter what your market will be.

Thank you very much for the advice. Admittedly, I am new to this aspect of writing and my tendency is to undercharge. Perhaps, the reason behind my tendency is the fact that writing doesn't feel like work to me. I absolutely love it! But, I love to eat too. Thanks again!

Whenever possible I try to charge by the job rather than the hour. The client gets a better value and they don't have to freak out at an hourly rate when the job may take only 15 minutes. If you do want to set an hourly charge, then bear in mind that you often get what you pay for. Someone who sets their rate too low may be perceived as not qualified or experienced enough to do the job.
