When it comes to setting your fee as a freelancer, charging the highest rate is NOT always the best way to earn the most money. Although that may sound contradictory, what we actually earn annually and what we are paid in any single engagement are two separate things. And sometimes the highest rate is NOT the best way to go.Now I’m not advocating that freelancers earn less than we deserve. Too many bosses look to pay as little as possible for the very core of what keeps their businesses thriving. I’m not looking to reward them for greed. And I’m also not saying that you are worth one penny less just because you charge less.But, even if some of you will disagree with me, let me explain what I mean, and why I decided that charging “under the radar” has been an effective path … at least for me.
