How much should I charge is a constant question we hear from many. It can be the worse part of getting a job offer. Having to negotiate the price you place on a job in fear of charging too much or too little can be nerve wrecking.
We've put up a couple of posts about how to figure out what you should charge for work and even noted a free app that takes a number of factors into effect when coming up with an hourly rate for you individually. (We've even listed the book Will doesn't like in his video as an Essential Read!) Will has a great new video up where he discusses how he goes about pricing and the number of factors that go into him making the choices he does.
He passes on a lot of wonderful advice and I hope you all listen and pay close attention. He is always passing on wisdom and great info to his peers!
I've been wanting to make this video for quite sometime. I get asked all the time by students, people at conferences, and visitors to my blog - how should I price my work? In this video I share my opinions about figuring out exactly how much to charge and how it can vary depending on many factors that are happening in your life. I realize it's a bit lengthy but I didn't want to leave stones unturned. I wanted to have a detailed answer that I can email out whenever I get asked this question in the future.
If you've even wondered how much to ask for on an art project I hope my ideas help you.
