Recently, on the Freelancers Forum, I answered some pretty pointed questions about pricing posed by Colleen Rice Nelson, who also runs the Freelancer Meet Up in LA.
The most-asked question: "What should I say when they ask, 'What is your hourly rate?'"
If you've heard or read anything I've written about pricing, you probably know I take a pretty provocative stand on this issue: Your hourly rate is none of your client's business.
In this interview I elaborated on this idea and then answered the follow up question: "What should I do if they push, push, push and insist on knowing my hourly rate?"
Listen to find out what I said, including when you can make an exception to this rule.
During the second half of the hour, I was joined by Dyana Valentine and the communicatrix to answer more listeners' questions about pricing. (Note: there was a glitch in the recording between minutes 7-12, but it goes on for an hour altogether.and is worth waiting for it to continue, IMHO)
By the way, there will be an entire session on pricing at the Creative Freelancer Conference. Peleg Top and Lee Silber will be offering a hands-on workshop called, The Price is Right. Sign up today here: http://www.creativefreelancerconference.com
