Setting your rates as a freelancer

Making sure you’re making what you deserve!

In general, for negotiations, you don’t want to set the anchor point and instead get a ballpark figure of what they’re looking to pay.

To do this, I would ask what their budget is for the engagement or where the funds are coming from (e.g., which department, which part of the budget).
