Freelancer Breakfast: What's your value?
Thu 20 October 2016, 10:00 – 12:00 BST
Our Freelancer Breakfast is a regular monthly event where freelancers and small consultancy teams can get together, share their challenges, and offer up experiences and ideas on how to overcome bumps in the road.
This month we will be discussing pricing. Many freelancers struggle with setting their hourly rates.
What is the right pricing model for your services?
What is the "right price" to quote for a fixed price project?
Is your price too high?
Are you selling yourself too cheaply?
Should you just offer the same rate as your competitors?
In many ways, these are the wrong questions. Identifying your value to your client is key. If you're charging a client an hourly rate, and during a five-minute phone call you offer a piece of advice that saves them thousands, does the £15 they pay you for that call really reflect the value offered?
Join us for coffee and breakfast to explore some of these issues further.
We will also have a slot for one of our members to present a business challenge they are currently facing to the group (whether it's about pricing or something else). We will then tap into the collective experience in the room, working and learning together to help solve the problem.
The event will be facilitated by Huckletree member, Ed Cooke, a freelance consultant, investor and tech entrepreneur.
If you're interested in attending Huckletree's Freelancer Breakfasts, we'd like you to take an active role in shaping this event series with your suggestions and ideas. So please grab yourself a coffee or tea and take part in our 3-minute survey about freelancing. Thank you for your time!
