I recently got “promoted” to Level 1, which has definitely given me more business. However, I’m having trouble pricing myself fairly. I still get most of my gigs through the Buyer’s Requests, and have had several people ask me if I’m sure about the price in my offer, which is always relatively low. It wasn’t until I had an author tell me that I should increase my price that I even thought about going in and changing my gig. I, thankfully, don’t need the money, so I’ve experimented with offering my services at higher prices through the Buyer Requests, but I haven’t been able to get someone to bite.
So I guess my questions are these: how do you determine the price you charge for your gig, and what can I do to make myself more visible so people will order straight from my gig instead of me having to hunt down clients? Do you find that too many sellers undercut fair pricing?
