I’m interested to hear feedback from sellers on this matter.
I started out pricing my research gigs at $5 per hour. Gratefully, with some reviews under my belt, and orders coming in, now I’m up to $15 for 2 hours. Which puts my pay at $6 an hour.
I’m brand new to the freelance community, so I can handle $6 per hour, buuuuuut I tend to work an hour overtime so I can get good reviews. I’d love to live somewhere that I can afford to live at such a wage, but that is not the case.
I’m hoping I’ll be able to gradually increase my rates to $10 for an hour, $25 for 3 hours, and $70 for 8 hours.
I’m concerned that as I increase my rates it will eventually become difficult to get orders, and am wondering if anyone has experience doing this for hourly gigs. I know that I provide a high quality product, and high quality service. Even the increased rates are fairly low for what I provide.
What do you think, will the fiverr market-place be able to handle it?
