Recently I ran across two compelling posts, which I’ll share with you in a moment, that discuss raising your fees.

Both pieces encourage freelance writers to charge more. The reasons given are sound. They include:

1. Low-paying clients tend to be difficult to work with.

2. You will burn out quickly – and possibly quit writing – if you’re constantly working long hours and receiving small paychecks.

3. Higher-paying quality clients will see you as an amateur if your rates are too low, and they’ll end up hiring someone else.

4. With better rates your attitude (and your self-esteem) will improve, raising the quality of your life and your writing.

If you’d like more reasons to increase your writing fees, read the following. The first comes from the International Freelancers Academy and focuses on why you should raise your rates. The second, which I learned about through Gotham Ghostwriters, comes from Freelancers Union and explains how to charge more.

How To Raise Your Freelance Rates

You and your services truly are worth it. If  specialists in other fields can charge more for outstanding skills and service, why not you?

All the best,

Hi there, ghostwriters! I hope each of you is involved in a fun and interesting project.

Just want to make a couple of announcements today.

First, our friends at Gotham Ghostwriters posted a terrific spotlight on my eBook, Where Are The Ghostwriting Jobs. I had the opportunity to answer several questions, including:

  • How did you land your first ghosting jobs?
  • What are some challenges an aspiring ghostwriter might face?
  • Do you see ghostwriting as an expanding market these days?

Check out the book spotlight here.

And second, I’ve just posted a second eBook at Amazon: What Does The Ghost Say?

WhatGhostSay

In this concise yet informative report, three seasoned ghostwriters share how they got into ghostwriting, how they advanced, even what some of their more lucrative projects have been.

At a price of just 99 cents, it’s worth adding to your collection of writing guides.

Until next time,
