    answer:. According to the Business Insider, you should charge anywhere from $10.00-20.00 an hour if you're just starting out. If you have a specialization, then price your services accordingly based on that specialty need. For example, social media professionals can charge up to $30 an hour for managing company's twitter account or Facebook page while marketing professionals are welcome to charge more depending on the industry they specialize in (e.g., computer hardware).

    Freelance writing rates vary greatly depending on many factors such as years of experience, specialty area, and competition. Entry-level freelance writers typically charge about $1-2 per word. Some industry experts say advanced freelancers should charge $4-5 per word, while very advanced freelance writers might earn up to $8 or more per word (anything under that is considered "low" by industry standards). Ultimately it's up to you what rate you want to set your freelance work at. You can't please everyone in this field so don't let it stress you out when lowering your prices doesn't lead any new business opportunities!

    The answer to that question really depends on the freelancer. Service providers charge what others are willing to pay, so it's possible for writers to charge "whatever they can get" but then have few takers for their services. It's better to attempt setting a price range instead of an across-the-board number. If you want potential clients to believe your work is worth paying for an hourly rate, do some research first and find out how much other people are charging in comparable fields/locations/industries. And finally, remember that many clients will search prices online before hiring someone, so be sure the pricing information is easily found on your website too if you're not talking about it up front!

    There are no set pricing standards. The success of any price depends largely on the type of writing you're providing, your experience level, and how professional you want to appear. The rates that will bring success vary by industry and region, but $60 per hour is typical for freelance writers writing blog posts or other content with a short turnaround time. Alternatively, $75-$90 per hour can be charged for editorial work requiring more editing.

    A reasonable freelance writing fee is typically a penny a word. This means that an article of 1000 words would cost $100. The going rate for professional essay writers will often have a greater range in pricing based upon particular qualifications and skills, which can be expressed as per-word rates or hourly rates to meet the needs of different customers. For example, if someone has 10+ years' experience in writing for academic journals then they may charge from $35-$45 per hour depending on their level of experience. Someone with less experience might charge about half that amount.

    For freelance writers, rates can range from as low as $0.05 per word to as high as $200+ per word for works of literary fiction. You might ask a relative or friend who is a writer what they charge and use that as a starting point for your own rate negotiations. Try not to expect them to offer you an exorbitant amount of money on the spot when you first reach out because (unless they're Edward de Bono) they probably also need time to think about it!
