Hourly rate? Think about what your local plumber is charging.
If a customer isn’t willing to pay what you think is reasonable, you don’t want them for a customer.
Precisely — if us as media producers aren’t treated as normal vendor / contractor, what’s the point?
At the end of the day the pricing comes down to:
1. What the market can bare
2. What is it worth to the client
3. What’s the cost to you
4. What’s the benefit to you
1 - 2 are tricky, but the ones that mean the difference between decimals sometimes.
Lastly, let’s think collectively on this. If we all (hypothetically) set a low price barrier that we simply won’t work under, that helps all of us right? It’s capitalism at the end of the day, but if the price goes too low for whatever reason, that hurts us all. And that’s the amazing benefit of groups like this that let us discuss and learn from each other.
Thanks for even opening up and discussing this in the first place
