If you've followed me for a while, you already know that I'm NOT a fan of quoting hourly rates.
At least not when you're a freelance writer.
There are many disadvantages to the hourly rate model, and I still believe that in most cases it's much better to quote flat project fees.
However, there ARE some situations where it makes more sense to quote project work by the hour. And if you do it right, you can still earn a great living and keep your client happy.
I recently corresponded with web content writer and SEO specialist Katherine Andes. Katherine quotes most of her work by the hour. And one of the many things I admire about her is how successful she's been with this model.
In this episode, Katherine explains why she's chosen the hourly rate model. How she makes it work for both her and the client. And how she handles pricing objections and pushback.
