I now rewrite 600 words for $5. This may not sound like much less but it really is. It means I get burned out less and I'm earning slightly more. It's my hope that with this new pricing model I'll be better able to manage my work and increase my earnings a little bit more. I doubt I'll ever feel comfortable charging more than $1/100 words but, for now, we'll see how this goes.
I messaged some of my bigger clients personally to make them aware of the change. So far everyone who replied told me they supported my decision and thanked me for letting them know. That was nice of them.
Remember folks that value is about more than just price. Value is quality/price. With the quality of my work (Over 250 4/5 star reviews!) the price was ridiculously good value. Now it's a little more expensive, but still great value. Here's hoping the move works well for me and I'm able to bring in slightly more money.
If people weren't bored to tears by this post then maybe I'll be more comfortable talking about work in the future.
