To be honest, I cannot answer this question with an exact number because although a cliche, sky is the limit when working as a freelancer. I see in my Google Analytics a lot of people find me through asking questions like “how much does a graphic designer make”, or “how much a freelance marketing consultant makes”, and alike.
In this post I will try to explain how to make as much money as you want working as a freelancer. First and foremost, forget about how much money you used to make before you started working as a freelancer. A lot of freelancers who come from low socio-economic countries like India, Pakistan, the Philippines, even Eastern European countries, think it’s impossible to make a good living as a freelancer. I know speaking “in theory” isn’t convincing, neither useful, so let me put it into perspective.
I will give you examples how much money a marketing consultant and a graphic designer can make, working as a freelancer, from what I have seen in my experience so far.
How much money you can make as a freelance graphic designer you can find out by your ability to work with clients like me. If you open popular freelance job boards, you will see there are designers, willing to work for as little as $5 or $10 per hour.
I am sorry I have to break this for you but if you are one of those designers, unless you improve drastically your designer’s skills, that’s about all the money you can make as a freelance graphic designer.
If you are a true artist though, for whatever reason you charge as little as 5 or 10 bucks per hour – stop right now. Maybe someone at some point told you that you need to cut your prices in order to land designing jobs. When you charge $5-10 per hour for whatever designing skills you have, you put yourself in front of all those clients who don’t care about quality – they have costs as their highest priority. You may land a job with them, alright, but you will never get to land a job with a quality client who would appreciate you for your artist skills.
If you are a good designer, you can start charging anywhere between $25 to $50 even on websites like oDesk and Elance.
If you are a great designer, with a little help from a marketing professional, you can position yourself right and start charging top dollar for your work right away. As your experience as a freelancer grows, you can start taking only fixed price jobs with clear terms of collaboration where your hourly rate could amount to $75 and $100+ per hour. Anyways, back to the question how much money a marketing specialist can make when working as a freelancer. Majority of marketing experts who charge $7-$10 per hour are not very knowledgeable about marketing at all. They know some SEO, they may be able to handle your blog scheduling, browse your google analytics data, assist you in various marketing tasks like web research, competitors link profiling, etc.
You can find decent freelancers for 7 to $10 per hour but sooner or later, they all increase their rates when they realize they are worth and can get paid more for their services. The freelance marketers who work for years at $7-10 are probably good workers who cannot work on their own and are happy with the place they are at. If you are smart and willing to learn and improve, you can grow, too – your wage is not set in stone and you don’t have to stay at the same level forever. If you can think independently though and help clients with strategy planning, then you can charge more. From $25-35 for social media marketing planning, through $50 per hour for team training and management, to $75+ per hour for consulting, marketing project management and coaching. And as your experience as a freelance marketing consultant grows, you will be better at estimating the time and effort needed to complete a task. To name a few – complexity of the task at hand, how experienced you are, how skilled you are, how busy you are, what the turnaround time is, how well known you are, how referable you are, and so on. Read my 3-part series about setting your prices as a freelancer – on your freelance profile, when charging by the hour, and when applying to fixed price jobs. And let’s not forget when working as a freelancer, you have the freedom to decide how much you want to work. Your income is proportional not only to your hourly wage but to the amount of working hours you put in. And if you choose to work 20 hours per week and can land only high-paying gigs at $100 per hour, you income would amount to 8K per month. All of these scenarios are possible – it all depends on what you want and what you are capable of.
If there is one takeaway in this post, it would be that anything and everything is possible. Everyone wants to know what they can earn and what to charge, but realistically it is dependent on the task, experience and customer as you pointed out. But I think you have given some great ideas and limits to consider for people when pricing and I am sure they can now head off and give it a go!
Anyways, you are absolutely right – there ARE people willing to pay top dollar for quality so continue in the same direction; positioning in front of those clients is key! This is such a broad topic, Arslanali – at some point, i will write a series of posts about marketing our freelance services. Make your blog posts both search-engine and readers friendly PLUS get access to other goodies! That's the challenge Tina Seelig presents her students in a design program at Stanford University. In the clip below, Tina share shares the clever answer one group of her students came up with not long ago. One team started a stand on campus to check bike tire presssure for free and charged $1 to refill tires.
Another team used their time to make reservations at the various busy restaurants near the university and sold back them to patrons.
The last team made the most money by selling their 3 minute class presentation to a local company to do recruiting. I promise to hide nothing, and going to show you everything and I am sure you would start earning $500 if you follow this post. You will discover how to do it and how you can too copy my system and get your video up and rank it within a few week and start earning. What I am doing is – I choose CPA offers to promote, build videos and get traffic on these offers and they get convert and money rolls in my bank account. Firstly I find a niche in which I need to work, basically a profitable niche, then I search for profitable keywords, next I start building videos that converts CPA offers at 40-50%.
I have twisted this method from my experience like – how to rank video, how to create videos that convert, how to rank in Google, how to bring traffic, what to promote.
Like how my small videos are getting 10k views on autopilot and making me $200-500 per video.
Think like this – if you have a single video you earn $300, what if you have 10videos like that?
Now we have selected our niche, next we need a product to promote as solution to this niche. So that’s my advice for you too, always choose email or zip offers to promote with your YouTube videos.
Keywords are basically terms which people search in search engines like YouTube, Google etc.
For example – Let’s suppose a person searched “acne treatment” in Google, then this two words – “acne treatment” is keyword.
Let’s suppose we know what 10k people are searching on Youtube and if we rank a video there, then what will happen?

Youtube will start displaying our video in front of those 10k people and resulting in traffic to our video, hence more profits! These suggested terms are keywords which people of same problem are searching in Google, so it’s a great way to find keywords. Build a list of 5 keywords from this list and check out their search volume in Google keyword planner.
In Google keyword planner when you place any keyword it will give you exact search volume per month. Always have UK, USA in country, as we want to know search volume from these countries mainly. So, what should be the range of searches our keyword should have, so that we can rank easily and can make money too.
If you look at this keyword you would see it clearly says the person who is searching it is having problem with acne and need solution and ways to cure it. I get a lot of people asking me how I create my videos which converts really well, what should be length of a proper video and blah blah.. So always have a script before creating your video, and it will take no more than 15 minutes to do it.
If you will start with introducing yourself, you will fail to get their attention as they are not interested in knowing about you. I know a lot of people will tell you make a story saying – oh, I was so irritated with acne, and then I got this product and I am in relief now.. That’s bullshit story, nobody will believe you, people are no fool nowadays and I ask you not to fool anyone, we are doing real business that will make you $5k-10k+ per month, so be honest and try to provide some real value and money will roll in, trust me. So relate to him while making video and share what he feels about his problem and you can also teach in few lines how acne happens. Just 2-4 lines are enough, and at last tell them to – Click on the link below this video to watch find best solution for their problem. Never force people to click your link, just tell them gently, and trust me it works better than repeatedly saying click, click the link, click it.. Handle them that script or points that they need to say in video and they will do it at a dirt cheap rate of $5 only. Now we have video ready, and before I directly upload it to youtube I usually optimize it so that it rank easily.
If your video length below 1 minute, then just edit it in Camtasia or “cam studio” to increase its length to at least 2 minutes. I don’t know why it happens but I have seen it myself, if you try to rank 2-4sec video it will be very tough in compare to 2 minutes video.
In this picture you can see, I have started description with my “Link”, that’s important as our main aim doing this is to drive traffic to our offers which we are promoting. Now to rank your video in Youtube, the most important thing you need is – high retention views. For getting some real views you can do is – share your video on your social media profiles, with your friends, like on Facebook, Twitter, Google plus etc. High retention views means how long your video has been viewed by your audience, like if 3 people came to your video and they watched your video completely without closing it in between, then your retention will be 100%.
Just visit Fiverr and search for “YouTube views” And you’ll get a lot of people selling views. Here is a small tip – don’t buy views in bulk ever, always buy views in small package of 1000 to 3000, never buy more than that. You can rank your video in YouTube easily, just follow these steps: Always get high retention views, some likes as well as social bookmarking links. Always Get High Retention Views : Get minimum 4000 to 8000 views, no need to buy more than the given amount!
If you are planning to purchase views and likes with social bookmarking links, never order them separately.
Let me explain why – it’s because if you want to rank your video then you need to order them all at same time duration, so that everything looks good. And when you are ordering always make sure to check out the seller’s reputation in the market plus customers reviews and testimonials so that you can know if he is good or not. You can’t rank your video neither in google nor in youtube without doing on page seo correctly. On page SEO means what optimization you are doing on your video page that is going to help in ranking it.
It’s necessary to have keyword in your title as the first thing which search engines like youtube and google see is – title. The best thing I can tell you is – always put keywords in your description, never forget that as search engines can’t read your video content but can read your description, so it’s very important element.
Never use your keyword in your video all the time, I mean don’t use your keyword repeatedly!
Maintain keyword density less than 2%, always remember that, it will help you in long term. So if you get 5-10 backlinks from these sources you will easily see your video ranking higher than your competitors. You can share your video on facebook, twitter, linkedin and all the social media sites and when you share you get a backlink, this will help you in ranking your video.
There are many forums online in each niche, just go and make accounts on them and start sharing some knowledge and in “signature” you will get one backlink per post. If you have been online from few month then you must have heard about yahoo answer, do you know the traffic on yahoo answer is hungry for solution.
What you can do is – just find questions related to your niche and suggest your video to watch as a solution, you will start seeing a lot of fresh, real and hungry traffic coming to your way. I recommend you do this – 10 comments per day, and you will see 100 views per day in a week. Do you know there is a services online called press release, which can get you a lot of views and backlinks from high pr sites and once you get these backlinks, you will get traffic with ranking. What I actually do is – I upload the “money video” (video which is going to make us money and rank) and then I create a simple video with help of pictures and background music. Then I make 5-7 variations of this video by simply cutting the last few seconds of each video. Let’s say I made a video of 2 minutes, then I cut a video upto 1 minute 50 seconds, second one 1 minute 30 seconds and so on.. This way YouTube thinks they are different videos, and then I upload all these 5-7 variations to YouTube with keywords related to our main money video. YouTube thinks – your money video must be very nice and informative that’s why you are getting so many backlinks from other YouTube videos, and rank your main video for your keyword higher! This is the best method out there and it ranks your video in like 24 hours and sticks there for months easily.
Blog networks links means a group of blogs from where you can get backlink pointing to your videos. You can simply create 10 websites and link back to your YouTube video and it will rank your video in under 24 hours. I usually see increase in ranking within 24-48hours, totally worth it if you are looking to rank fast. I regularly use cashnetwork as they are really fantastic, they pay weekly and convert really well for me. When you enter your keyword in these sites, they will show you CPA offers from multiple networks all in one place. Now In this last section I am going to reveal you how to scale up your business and take your income level from $3000 to $5k or even $10k per month.

Think like you worked for a whole week and you made a video and get it ranked, and one video is making you $200-300 per month. If you start outsourcing works then you could make 5 videos and get them ranked that would help you to go from $1-3k to $5-10k per month. This is exactly what top YouTube marketers are doing and making $10-20k per month without working much.
I know many people fails because they don’t know how to drive traffic, so in this section I will teach you how I am able to drive 30,000 views to my YouTube videos easily on autopilot. Think if you get 30,000 views to your video then how much traffic will flow to your affiliate link, and how many conversions you see, and how much money you’ll make. Always have keyword in your video title but write it in such a way that it attracts eye balls easily. So, always have this kind of title, it will improve number of people clicking to your video even when you are ranking low in Google.
Find a famous video in your niche and make a video response of that one, and link your main video in description. I already told you to add keywords as tag while uploading, but what to do If your keyword is more than one word.
You can add your keyword as tag in YouTube by simply putting quotes around your keywords like this – “top acne treatment”, “best way to remove acne”. After you have searched keyword for your video, find some more keywords – long tail keywords. Now, make a list of 4-8 Long tail keywords and add them at the end of description in your video.

Working at a startup comes with the promise of striking it rich one day from stock options.A But until then,A employees still need to be paid.
In September, the AngelList job market reached a new milestone: the average developer salary passed $100,000.
So here's a look at how much money you can make at startups as of September, based on analyzing 26,226 jobs and 6,750 skillsA from AngelList.
They are used to getting paid low wages and think it’s normal to be so when they are freelancers, too. After all, that’s why we became freelancers – to put ourselves out there and to work on a world-class level. Unfortunately, I was one of them when I was starting 5 years ago but in my defense, I didn’t know better. You can find a marketing expert literally for all type of wages between $7 and $70, even on freelance websites. They have heard this is all in the marketing domain of any business so they called themselves marketing experts.
The latter is harder to be found on freelance job boards – working directly with clients is a better option. So you will be able to take more fixed price jobs and calculate your pricing in such a way that your hourly rate would amount at $50 or $100 per hour even if the gig is not as high level as coaching but e.g. I see people who proudly exclaim how they hired someone on Fiverr to do three hours of copy and pasting blog posts into Word documents. I am glad you are already at that stage, Lorraine ?? – with your experience as a freelancer growing AND your schedule filling up with assignments, you definitely should consider raising your rates accordingly. I am going to show you everything step by step, so you can understand everything very clearly.
So for this, what I generally do is visit ezine articles and there you will find a list of broad niches which are popular. I generally go with – Business, Internet marketing, Health and fitness, Finance, Investing, Real Estate niches, as finding CPA offers related to these niches are easy and they pay well too. You can select any of these sub-niches to work on, and in these niches there are thousands to be made easily. We all know acne is problem faced by a lot of people all over the world; it’s not limited to any specific country. If you are looking to make thousands or even millions you should first look if your niche has audience and hunger or not.
In internet marketing niche – I like to work with CPA network called – Cashnetwork, it’s a secret CPA network, very few people know about it, and best thing is they pay really well. I think this is the best range while searching your keywords, it is enough to make you $200-700 from a single video and it’s easy to rank for. You know a lot of people don’t understand the importance of keywords and fail and I don’t want you to fail that’s why I revealed everything to you. If you have a proper script for your video your conversions will increase, and if you fail in your script, your income will suffer a lot. If your keyword has more competition just repeat the above steps for your video until you see you video ranked. You can simply write an article and submit that article to these sites and in author field you will get two backlinks.
They are so powerful, get 5000 pack from fiverr and you will see result within 24-48 hours depending on your keyword competition.
And ask is links permanent or not, a few guys charges on basis of monthly rental, stay away from them as that would cost you more. Like video creation, backlink creation, uploading to youtube, writing description, getting views, sharing on social media sites.. But that doesn't hold true forA other types of tech jobs, like sales, marketing, or business jobs. To do so, we should break free from the assumption we can make more money compared to what we used to make. I can always tell you what I don’t want and I can always tell you what should be changed in a first draft design. I felt really uncomfortable hiring her at this price (because i know better), gave her a few chances to raise her price accordingly by emphasizing i want her and nobody else… still, she did apply with this price. So today I am going to let you think yourself ?? You just have to implement the strategies and Boom . That doesn’t mean go with keyword having million searches as it would have really tough competition and ranking for those keywords would be no easy.
I can tell you why I want something changed but I certainly wouldn’t be able to tell you how to change it.
I would never pay ANYONE the equivalent of $1.66 an hour for any kind of work, no matter where they lived in the world. Those freelancers are able to work with designer’s programs like Photoshop, Illustrator and alike but that’s about all they can do. I just keep reminding myself that a lot of people still don’t mind paying for quality over quantity.
