I wrote a couple hubs on how Interior Lighting and Outdoor Lanterns. Well I just got an offer to write 4 300-500 word articles, about lighting, for a company. They want to know how much I'd charge for 4-500 word pieces. Well I don't have a clue. Any suggestions???
Thank you HubPages for this opportunity. What a great avenue to write and share.
I would appreciate any advice. I need to give them an answer soon. Thanks! R.K.
I've not much experience in this field, but I find that Shirley is willing to give some tips through her experience...try...
She has some great Hubs on this sort of thing too.
She writes for an hourly basis...and sets her price at fifty bucks but negotiable.
Hope I helps u!!!!1
Thanks for the plug, GM!!!
RK, send me an email to discuss, okay?
I would check out the going rate for that kind of work at a site like Elance.
How often has this sort of thing happened to hubbers? I admit, this is one of the reasons I joined hubpages. I want to get some freelance writing experience and hope to be able to showcase some of my work here for, hopefully, future writing adventures.
I would NEVER use a bidding site's prices! EVER! If your writing is good and you know anything about search engine optimization, you'll work for very little money using bid sites as your pricing guide. I'm not trying to tell you what to do, just saying what I would not do.
Yes, K.D., HP can bring offers for freelancing. There are several of us who have gotten client projects from here. Once you're established, you may get emails from people looking to hire you for some hubs or articles.
This was just discussed in the thread
Congrats and good luck!
Good to know!!! I won't use a bidding site. :-)) Yes, please listen to Shirley-I am a rank novice!! lol ;-)
Good job and I wish you luck with this great opportunity. I recommend you value your writing. Given they will require research and time but at the same time you have to look at the other party and what is their budget. I would say give them a good high number, as it was mentioned in a lecture by famous american doctor of psychology. Always give good high number and then if they reject give them a lower number and they are likely to accept it..
my 2 cents
RK that is very cool news! Maybe then you can write a hub and tell how it went. It would be great info for the inexperienced and taking us along from the standpoint of inexperience might be very helpful and informative. And, you will give some of us....hope...
As Shirley said, never use the prices from a site like Elance or Guru. They are full of morons who will work for peanuts (.02 to .04 cents per word.) I seek a minimum of .10 cents per word, or $50 for 500 words. That's if you can do the whole project in two hours. If there's lots of research and it's going to take you more than two hours, adjust your price accordingly. How much do you want to make per hour? My figure is $25 dollars.
Rkhenry, appreciate you sharing the news with us, i am so happy for you. Hope it goes doen well with you it shows another spectrum of possibilities available at hubpages.
Great stuff, RK - I hope that this is the first of many assignments for you
Congratulations!!! I am excited for you as my opportunity came from here too.
