How much would you charge for a summary of one of your hubs?
Okay...I've just recently been contacted by someone who wants to pay me to write a half-page summary of one of my own hubs. And he's asking me how much I would charge... The problem is I usually charge by the word, but it's going to take me longer to summarize an 1800-word hub in 180 words than it would to just write a new article. I feel like I'd be severely short-changing myself if I just charged my usual rate.
So, what do other people think about this? What would you charge? Would you even do it at all?
I would be skeptical since that is a strange request, IMO. If I use a hub by another writer, I simply post their link within my article, on my blog, etc.
Yes, I thought it was strange too. ... I thought about writing the summary and demanding that a link be put in, but how could I even ensure that this would be done? I might just ignore it for now. "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark..."
Sounds fishy to me. Ask them for $1000 and see what kind of reply you get.
It depends on how long it is, the longer it is, the more it costs. Hope this helps!
Okay, I am going to assume that the person wants to use your article but wish to place a summary of it on their site along with a link. That's great. If that is so then by all means write the summary for free and charge them a usage rights where you charge for the use of the article instead. If that is not the case then tell him you are not interested as the cost is too small. Something like that would probably run for about $10 - 18 and that is the top rate.

I was just wondering how long a hub takes you to write from concept to published? I am using hubpages as the start of my freelance writing career and I am working being more productive. I am also only doing my second...

Is summary (of your hubs) that much important?
