Are you a freelancer?
Do you sell your services?
Do you have trouble knowing how much you should charge?
If you answered yes to these questions, then I can help you.
I know what it’s like to freelance. As a matter of fact, I am freelancing at the time of writing this post!
It’s not easy to figure out how much to charge for your services, but I have created a foolproof way to do it.
It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in or what service you sell.
My non-proprietary 4 step process will help you charge the right amount, every time.
Don’t worry about undercharging or overcharging ever again!
My 4 Step Process to determine how much to charge for freelancing
This is how I do it:
- Eat Number Soup (it’s like Alphabet Soup, but with numbers)
- Reflect on my life choices
- Use whatever noodle numbers are floating in the toilet bowl
There it is!
That’s my quick and simple way to know how much I should charge for freelancing services.
Though it’s easy, this method has cost me a lot of money in the past.
Maxim only had to pay me $31 for my copywriting services after I used the 4 Step Process!
Not Maxim the softcore porno magazine, but a florist whose website I built many years ago. His name was Maxim. Not Maximus, not Maximilian, not any variation that made actual sense.
But I digress.
Let me give you a few extra pointers so you can maximize (no pun intended) the results garnered from the process.
Extra Tips on using the 4 Step Process to determine how much to charge for freelancing
There are a few ways you can make the most of this method. Let’s go through them.
- Eat the soup quickly. The less you digest, the more numbers you will vomit.
- Don’t overcook your soup. If the noodles become too soggy, you won’t recognize the numbers!
- Don’t use salt in your soup. It will make it the experience worse when you regurgitate.
One last tip before you go!
It’s unlucky to use the same numbers for multiple projects. The Cottage Woman told me that it brings bad fortune to use a set of noodle numbers more than once. She is also the one who taught me this awesome trick.
Heaven, bless you, my sweet Cottage Woman.
