I originally wanted to charge a 20 dollar hourly rate as that seems to be around the norm for new to the field freelancers. But I'm going to charge a weekly rate that'll be slightly cheaper than what my desired hourly rate would add up to. Possibly this method will leave the client feeling like they aren't paying so frequently thus feeling more willing to pay what I'd like to charge.
Also, I plan on charging the first week upfront so I don't do a week's worth of work for nothing if they decide to bail or what have you. It let's me know they're serious.
I'm also not going to give a price range but rather just a price. Given a range, they usually will pick the lowest rate. ha
Now, that all being said, do we think I am on the right mindset here? And I'm assuming I charge for the job while keeping within a self standard range? Example: The job is massive, charge said amount. Or the job is small, charge less.
Any advice or thoughts would be much appreciative.
