I have been freelance writing for 7 years and it’s been quite a journey. When I first started out I was making a mere $7.00 per hour, and I typed until my fingers ached. Today I have experience under my belt and I have learned that my writing skills deserve much more than minimum wage( or less than minimum wage). Time and time again I encounter potential clients who do not wish to pay me my asking fee. What happens? Those who wish to pay less or hire locals ( who may not have the experience or skills required) to do the job, end up eating crow and losing money in the long run. How do I know this? The phone rings three months later with an unhappy client telling me they were not pleased with whom they hired, leaving them to spend countless hours doing re-writes.
If I said it once I’ll say it again…YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!
If you hire someone with no experience you may not get what you want. But then again if given the chance someone might be able to prove themselves. Here’s the deal…I will not work for pennies! I have a family to feed and clothe just like you. However; my fees are fair and you will always receive nothing but quality written material from this queen! Taking the easy way out will cost you in the long run, so why even waste your time and money? With that being said…I am here if you need me to pick up the pieces. But remember this…I will not work for pennies. If you want quality work…YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!
