How to Charge for Writing Services

When I started writing, one of my business ad visors told me I needed to set a price guideline, and stick to it, I study the aspects involved in writing assessed the deadline and customer needs, time devoted to research of key words and customer specification as well as the looks of their websites and audience type.

There are several details to consider, some customers are looking for hyped up copyright to sell their products and describe them to new customers, some others prefer to order five pages of web-content with a mix of pure informative article writing, blog entries, and small pieces of content.

Regularly the time I need to produce five pages of content per website is about three to four days, I ask for the key words and website links as well as any customer information that can shed a light as to the type of content a particular audience might be interested in reading.

These details along with the customer recommendations and order specifications, are the key to produce my product.

Some times a customer wants to translate from Spanish into English or from English to Spanish, those are really tough jobs, and need more time and more work depending on the angle the customer wants the reader to grasp from the pieces.

To start my business relationships, my ad visors recommended I be sensitive to the difficult economic times we are all going through and to realise that even famous Writers are not selling their product at a high price.

I researched well established web-content providers and came up with some idea of what not to charge, some were to low that made me think their quality is poor, some others were exorbitant that made me feel that their words were those from the Gospel or something.

Hyped up articles are not my favorite to produce unless I know the product and I am confident I be telling the truth, this days all of us need to invest in things that actually work, and I knew I would not be happy telling people to buy something that is worthless.

So finally I came up with a pretty good guideline list of things to consider and a price sensitive enough for me and my customers. I charge by the word, and offer five pages of content of either two hundred and fifty words each or five pages of five hundred words each.

I think in my case I found a secure way to produce quality articles based on the customers needs, the economy and the value of my work, I recommend those of you who are trying to price your product to come up with a list of both your needs and work efforts as well as those of your customers to produce a satisfactory price range.

The work for me never stops after delivering my product, usually a day or so after delivery I make a phone call to assure the customer is happy with the words chosen for their web-pages, then if something is not up to standard I fix it right away and further review new developments a couple of days later until I grasp customer satisfaction.

I also like to offer a little present for my customers, one time a customer was having a baby, so I gave her a diaper cake for her baby shower.
