Thursday Bram - Why Are Freelancers More Expensive?

Why Are Freelancers More Expensive? by Thursday Bram

I’ve had clients do a double take when they see my hourly rate. They’ve asked why I’m so expensive — especially when they can hire an employee to do the same sort of work for half the hourly wage I’m asking. A few have even mentioned that they can get some minimum wage, entry level to write their project — it’s not like writing is hard, right?

(Don't know Thursday? She's a Votre Vray Creative Woman interviewee and this woman knows writing and how to network. If you don't know Thursday, you don't know freelance!)

I personally subscribe to Thursday's blog...comes right to my e-mail. Maybe you should too. (Nothing promotes creativity like seeing what your peers are up to!)

Happy New Year, and for the rest of the day (and 2008),
Keep creating!

Thanks for linking to this post. It's just so frustrating when clients don't consider the true price of a freelancer.
