    Freelance writers can charge a flat amount hourly, on a per-project basis, or on a monthly retainer. Freelance writers who aren't bound by contracts or agreements may set their prices based on how much time they need to spend for the project. For example, if you have two hours to work and want $80 for your services, you might price your freelance writing at $200 an hour. Studies show that charging hourly rates isn't as effective as charging fixed rates because some potential clients will outsource the work with no profit margin to themselves just so they can delegate it cheaply.

    Yes, freelance writers or content creators as they are sometimes called charge for their work. This is the professional tone we'd used for this answer, assuming an informative and not opinionated stance. Freelance writers typically charge a flat fee per large article and/or by the hour. Rates vary depending on many factors such as subject expertise and length of time needed to complete assignment. Writers with extensive website development skills might provide both copywriting services and site design services for Web-based products in return for a monthly retainer fee plus hourly "billable" hours agreeing to completion of agreed-upon tasks within time frame specified by Web designer's contract agreement).

    This is a difficult question to answer because writers charge different rates for their work based on what type of writing they're doing, the quality and size of the project, and their level of expertise. The key is to figure out how much you want to get paid and start charging that amount. It's also important not to take on jobs that will keep your word count below a certain level so you don't "expand" beyond what you should be charging for them. If successful freelancers know the right people then they should end up with great comission deals instead (I can offer such advice).

    Answer:
    At the risk of sounding too harsh, freelance writers are in this for one reason - money. Anyone worth their salt knows there is a certain equation to success and that includes asking for money fairly and honestly. Asking for less than your worth devalues your goods and services and also makes it seem like you need (or want) more work.
    There's nothing quite like working on a project with someone who needs help but doesn't ask you what it will cost them or whether they can pay at that moment; then when the work is done, they send an email saying "I knew I would be able to afford payment after we're done."
    The rule is: don't build something without knowing how much it costs before you

    Hired freelance writers usually charge per page. Some may specify if they are charging by the hour, but their hourly rates will be higher using our calculator (factoring in personal time, taxes, and general overhead). Take a look at the calculators below to get an idea of what you might expect. Amazon Mechanical Turk Calculator for Writers - Amazon's MTurk acts as more of an intermediary; their rates for independent contractors/freelancers is lower than you'll find elsewhere on the market due to Amazon's volume commission which means that if employers want volume work then Amazon will be cheaper than other places because there is less competition for volume work on Amazon MTurk.

    Freelance writers are the professionals that understand the nuances of writing and publishing like few other people. They can take on projects that nonexperts may not be qualified for, such as high-index journals, or exploratory research; they can synthesize findings from a multitude of sources; and they're able to frame these complex arguments in ways that generalist journalists might overlook. You'll find their bylines - The New York Times, Slate, Mother Jones and dozens more - atop long form essays and book reviews alike.
