Summary:A new version of Gwenydd's most popular webinar Getting Your Prices Right. Rewritten, updated and with new perspectives. Join Gwenydd on this kick-start to making 2018 our most profitable year yet!
Description
Gwenydd's most popular webinar Getting Your Prices Right is back. Updated and with new content. This is a great chance to review your pricing for 2018. Charge competitive prices while ensuring a sustainable income. Get new perspective on your productivity and how it affects your earnings. Explore different approaches to pricing, based on the job and client. Quote competitively, but so you can afford to keep freelancing in the long-term.

This webinar opens with a short discussion of current industry pricing trends. Gwenydd then shares her methods for analysing the profitability of her own work. You'll get her latest perspective on calculating your hourly rate. And learn how to analyse how sustainable your current pricing is.

We end by looking at how to apply this information to quoting for jobs. When can you afford to accept a lower rate? When should you be pricing higher? How can a translator price the different services they offer?
