I’ve been talking to clients lately to get a view inside the evolution of their business. A big signpost in the evolution journey is raising rates, but often, the creatives I work with are afraid their clients will disappear if they do it.
In a recent interview with Megan Coleman, freelance web designer, she says, “I charged less in the beginning because I didn’t know how much to charge. The more projects I took on, the more I realized how much things should really cost to make the money I needed to live.”
In this interview, Megan also answers these questions:
- How did she know it was time to quit her full-time job?
- What did she do to prepare for freelancing?
- Did she use up all the money she saved?
- How she got her first few clients.
- Why she recommends doing some freelance work on the side first.
Listen to the interview on the Marketing Mentor podcast.
