Whether you are new to freelance copywriting, or an old hand, you need to know how much to estimate for copywriting jobs. If you estimate too high, you may lose the job to someone else. And, if you estimate too low, you'll be leaving money on the table and may do your reputation some damage at the same time.
So, how do you KNOW how much to charge? You can ask around and check with other copywriters. But your best bet, however, is to get a current copy of “The Freelance Copywriter Fee & Compensation Survey”.
This survey tells you how much freelance copywriters earn in a year, how they estimate for their work, and how much they charge for a variety of different writing jobs (offline and on the web). This is an essential resource for anyone who needs to know current freelance copywriting rates.
