I'm asked all the time how to raise rates. In the last two weeks, I was asked this question at least five times. I mentioned the easiest way to raise your freelance rates briefly in my video about why I don't publish a freelance rate card. However, with so many questions related to the subject, I thought I'd devote an entire “tidbits” video to how to raise your freelance rates the easiest way possible.
Once you hear the method, it seems obvious. However, it's not immediately apparent that you could follow this process. I got the hint from Tom Drake, the owner of MapleMoney and my business partner.
What do you think of this approach? How do you raise your freelance rates?
