021—I Charged my client $100 per hour to Write Stuff
Back when I was starting out... I hated the fact that I could only charge around $2 to $5 per hour for my projects. Many people told me that you "need" the experience and the skills to charge rates as high as $25 per hour in my industry... Well, I proved them wrong by charging a client $100 per hour with just the basics of Copywriting in mind. Today, let's talk about that.
