I recently came to a realization that my work is SO valuable and I do deserve to charge people what I think it is - and not what SOME think - STICK TO IT! valuable clients with valuable, rewarding work - always appreciate your offer to the fullest!
I do translation gigs - Korean to English vise versa -
It is very difficult sometimes when I get jobs like having to google to STUDY the material because I just simply do not have expertise in that specific field of literature. Not because I lack on comprehensive skills - I just would like to know fully what I am translating and if I understood it correctly then translate it - My work is perfectly completed.
Sometimes it is very difficult - because some clients will ask for translation of their company’s business proposal - then later I am a little stuck with HOW should I word this into more marketing friendly material.
That is the reason why - I charge what I charge - and my offers are often ‘ignored’ but I just wished some clients would understand why I charge what I charge. I do not absolutely over charge - I don’t even think about the 20 percent Fiverr will take out of my earning sometimes - which I think I am supposed to be doing ? I am not sure -------- !!! Do you guys do that?
What kind of methods do you guys use to measure/quote the price on your gig - Especially on the custom orders. LET ME KNOW!!!
Do you guys have any suggestions? or Am I just a freaking too much worried and striving to be perfect?
