An agency offered me a constant cooperation and asked for my rates. I know the rates they charge, they are fixed and do not depend on the dificulty of the text or the the priority of the job. That\'s no problem because they are high priced. So I wonder how much to charge. Let us assume they invoice 100 to their clients, what will be my fair rate?

Don't worry about the agency's rates Jun 18, 2002

Hello,


Even if you know what an agency charges its clients, you have to determine what your time/work are worth. Charge a rate that you think is reasonable and go from there.


Good luck,


Erika

Of course I will not sell under price Jun 20, 2002

That\'s OK Erika, I will not sell under price. What I like to do is exhaust the margin, therefore I am asking. I wonder about the worth of the agency services. 20% ? 40% ?


Bye

Andreas
