Freelance Pricing

27 March 2004

Being a sole proprietor, freelancer or free agent can be a rewarding lifestyle and career. Knowing how to price services competitively, but profitably can be an art. In his second entry on the subject, Paul Scrivens provides some pricing guidance.

I have but one note of caution regarding what Paul suggests. As a freelancer, you might find it difficult to actually invoice 2000 hours in a year. You’ll work far more than that, but billing for every hour of the work week is a challenge. You might want to reflect that in your overhead figure or in the number of hours that make up a working year.
