How To Go From a $25/hour Freelancer To a $100/hour Freelancer

Five ways to become more valuable to your clients and charge more for your work. I share 5 principles you can implement starting now to help you change client perceptions and their understanding of your role in their long-term success, so that you can raise your rates.



To increase your rates and be able to charge more for your work, you need to bring more to the table than your talent and craft. You can either give a client exactly what they ask for and call it done, or you can participate in the client’s vision and even build on it.

Invest in your client’s vision. 

Learn about your client’s industry.

Use detailed project proposals.

Take the lead.
