A couple of recent conversations got me thinking about setting fees for copywriters.
One was a conversation with James, who commented on one of my blogs that many copywriters aren’t good with numbers. Another discussion was with an associate who said he saw freelance projects on Elance with bids of $50 for sales letters and $5 for blog posts.
Guys, what in the wide world of sports are you thinking? Working for $5?
I know that many writers aren’t great with numbers or comfortable talking about money. Maybe it’s because the world has beaten you down until you think you aren’t worth more than a French Fry Jockey.
