When’s the right time to raise your freelance writing rates?
Here’s a hint. November is one of my favorite months. And it’s not because of the impending holidays, though.
It’s because this is the best time of year to raise your freelance writing rates.
Seriously, how about starting the New Year already knowing you’re going to make more money? Yes, please.
Here’s the thing…if you want a raise next year, the clock is ticking. It won’t be long before your holiday line-up of parties, shopping, and events take up all your free time.
Maybe you even dial back freelance work for a few weeks during the holidays. That’s fine. It’s one of the perks of being a freelancer.
But if you don’t take action now, you could miss out on one of those no-time-like-the-present opportunities to raise your freelance writing rates.
Do you have any low-paying clients? Are you getting paid what you’re worth? Have you developed your skills and portfolio to charge higher freelance writing rates?
If you’ve been thinking about this stuff, here’s why you need to raise your freelance writing rates…right…now.
