Is money always on your mind? (It’s not a bad thing, I’m just asking.) As freelancers, it can be hard to position yourself in a place that both gets clients and makes money. One of the hardest things can be raising your rates. You don’t want to risk losing the clients you have, but there’s also only 24 hours in a day to get everyone’s work done. I just watched this video where Ramit Seti, of I Will Teach You To Be Rich, lays out how to raise your rates fairly, and have clients happily pay you.
Ramit Seti is the author of I Will Teach You To Be Rich, a community (book, blog, talks, etc) forcused on personal finance and entrepreneurship. He recently did a segment on Marie TV that specifically addresses how to raise your rates as a freelancer, and includes a script for doing so. I think you’ll find it really helpful.
