Atlanta Creative Freelancers
HOW DO CREATIVE FREELANCERS KNOW HOW MUCH TO CHARGE? Should you set rates based on the type of project, or the quality of your experience? Do you work by the hour, or negotiate an upfront project fee? If you think you're worth more, why aren't you charging more? Every freelancer agonizes over questions like these. Wouldn't you like to know what other freelancers think? How can you can make more money? Do experienced freelancers know something that you don't? DON'T MISS OUR NEXT ATLANTA FREELANCE FORUM MEETING. Our August meeting will feature a panel discussion all about setting rates and getting paid. How much is fair? Who deserves a raise? What's the industry average? How do you handle scope creep? And don't worry—we're going to have a wide range of creative areas represented, so everyone will be included in the discussion.
