## How do you price freelance work?

To set project-based fees, many creatives estimate the time that they will spend. They look at the scope of a project, estimate the number of hours, and then multiply the hours by their hourly rate. They add a few extra hours for buffer and send over a quote.

For instance, if you want to earn \$60,000 dollars a year, that means you should earn \$5,000 each month. If you intend to work for 40 billable hours each week, then you need to charge \$125 per hour. In this case, if a client gives you a project that takes you ten hours, you would then charge them \$1,250 for the project.

## How do I calculate my hourly rate as a freelancer?

A common approach to figuring out an hourly rate is to divide the salary you want by the number of hours worked each year:
1. 40 hours/week × 52 weeks/year = 2,080 hours.
2. \$100,000 desired salary ÷ 2,080 hours = roughly \$50 per hour.
