Know your worth

When starting out as a freelancer, it can be challenging to know where to price yourself based on your knowledge and your skills in the market. To work this out, we suggest you:

  • Find your niche. This is the value freelancers bring to many companies to help meet their needs. Once they’ve developed an area of expertise, they need to learn how to communicate their value, clearly and concisely. 
  • Learn the market. After all, there’s no fun in marketing a skill that nobody wants. 
  • Monetize your skills. It’s no good freelancing if you can’t make money. Turn your talents into products or services that people can buy. 
  • Tap into your confidence. Know that what you can offer is crucial and own it. Most
