If you’ve been following this blog for some time, you know that I’ve recently increased my rates. In fact, this is The Savvy Freelancer’s January 2010 challenge.
I’ve been increasing my rates every few months for the last year or so. And the results have always been positive, bringing a stream of new, higher-quality clients.
Despite knowing on a logical level that this move is good, the decision to increase my fees created a lot of anxiety in me. You see, I didn’t raise my fees by 10%, 20% or even 30%. I raised them by 84%!
