    "You don't get what you deserve in this world. You get what you negotiate." - Zig Ziglar

    As one who lacks the discipline, creativity, negotiating skills, patience, and general wherewithal to lay the groundwork required to support myself as a freelancer, I found this post both enlightening and captivating. My highest regard to you and the swarm of freelancers that are able to make it work. Great post, Paul.

    Thanks @Paul Walters for this insightful buzz. Freelancers have fixed cost as with all business. Why should we reduce our price when others are willing to pay for our value.
    To quote Warren Buffet:
    "Price is what you pay.
    Value is what you get
    Harvey Lloyd
    15/03/2017 #16 Harvey Lloyd
    In small business i have had to learn that your price is your price that "you" can do it for profitably. Maybe the guy down the street can do it for half my price, maybe. Then use them. The variables in what someone expects and your pricing structure is two very different things. You shouldn't price according to perception but, buy the value you have assessed.

    But this does take courage when faced with a starving feline. I remember the early days sticking to my guns on price. I didn't need a membership in weight watchers.

    Great read as always.

    #12 @Renée 🐝 Cormier Thanks for the solid feedback. I particularly like the, " Your time has no value to me" What a wanker!!!!! It's those sorts that drove me from the corporate world and I dont miss them at all ! These days for me negotiation is via e mail with very little face to face contact ! I NEVER negotiate on my rates even if I dont have the overheads of an office and often I don't get the gig. remuneration from Travel mags, ( read in flight journals ) vary, and the rate per word is all over the place. Some ( very few ,) pay $1 per word but these rates are falling each year, An example would be Air India who are only willing to pay $22c a word ( before tax) so writing a 1200 word piece is not really worth the effort ,except that I do receive mass exposure and subsequent book sales from these publications which is where my main focus lies. Still, I live on a tropical island, I work when I want to, seldom wear shoes and I'm warm all the time, so there is very little to complain about....Thanks for stopping by I appreciate it !

    Thank you, Paul! You get what you pay for. I keep my fees reasonable because I don't have the overhead of agencies, but nevertheless, there will always be people who want to waste my time. In fact, a few months ago, I was invited to a meeting with a company to see if I could help them with their marketing. Interestingly, the marketing person was in that meeting (with her note pad) and I was asked to provide them with my strategy for their new product. Of course, I gave away nothing, and it was a good thing, because the president later told me, "Your time has no value to me." No kidding. After the meeting, I sent him an email telling him what I charge for a plan and what my monthly retainer would be to implement it. He completely ignored it. No surprise there.

    Occasionally, I bump into people who want to pick my brain for free information. In order to keep those conversations under control, I ordered a Square ( a credit card reader that plugs into your phone). I can now stop the conversation, offer to continue for a consulting fee of $250 per hour and back it out of the retainer, if they employ my services. Nobody will respect you until you respect yourself.

    I firmly believe that the old adage, "You get what you pay for", stands true in most cases, Paul, with a few exceptions that, given enough time, eventually prove the rule. I have found that the client who does not understand the nature of the work being done, whether it be by a freelancer, a consultant, or an organ grinder with a monkey, invariably always falls back on price, as it is the only thing he or she can use to differentiate between offers, if they're presented without intelligible supporting info. The challenge is always to get across, as succinctly as possible, what he or she is getting for his or her money, what goes into the researching, preparing, checking and matching your deliverable with his or her expectations, and sticking to an agreed programme. If you can get a foot in the door, prepare a comprehensive and suitably fitting scope of work, with options for cost savings or for permitting additional items to be delivered at agreed rates, keep communicating as you go, and perform on time and on budget, then the word gets around and the work starts to roll in. Even if the temptation to go cheap as chips means we miss out on some work from good clients, they'll eventually twig that they can't get good reliable service for peanuts and come back to where they know they can. But if we take our clients for granted, forget to keep them informed of progress or problems along the way, of cost implications from variations in scope, and of problems likely to delay works; and if we are inflexible enough not to tailor the scope and programme to our clients' needs, and not to negotiate in the clients' best interests, then look out, 'cause the monkey's waiting to work for peanuts and will even undercut the organ grinder.
