The Freelance Hourly Rate Calculator

When you work freelance, you generally have the luxury of setting your own hourly rate – if you bill hourly.

This is tricky for anyone starting out, because you don’t really know what you should be charging. Talking with your peers and employers helps a lot, but isn’t always enough. Particularly if you have a specific budget in mind.

FreelanceSwitch, a fast growing network of resources for freelancers, has created an hourly wage calculator that can help you decide what to charge your clients.

I tried it, and, as fickle as my budget can get, it was very accurate.

For whatever field you work in, try this out, and see if you may be charging too little to suit your lifestyle.
