Are there any researchers here on Hubpages? What is your standard rate?
If you are a researcher what do you charge? I am about to do a job but I worked with the client before. The hourly rate I set was good but based on the amount of time to put in, the cost was out of his reach. So I agreed to set a fixed price. Any ideas please?
well, how can anyone answer this question? The fixed price depends on the type and scope of research. it is one thing if it is a marketing research, another thing if it is market research, third thing if it is data minding type of research...
Basically, it is always good rule of thumb to quote a fix price based on number of hours times hourly rate plus 10% buffer. e.g. if your hourly rate is $20 and you need 10 hours for the research, the total price will be 20 x 10 + 10% = $220. Now the hourly rate can be let's say up yo 5 for data mining type of research, 10-15 for marketing research, 20-30 or more for market research or competitors research and analysis, and so on. It depends also on the analysis involved after the research is done.
Hope this helped - but if there are more details, it would be easier to help your calculate costs :-) Good luck!

I joined Odesk and put my hourly rate at $6/hr. Do you think that's a fair price for a beginner?

Do you track both your income from writing and how much time you put into it? If you do, do you have a minimum hourly rate that you target?

It is against HubPages' rules to inquire about other writer's monthly payments.
