Knowledge is power. Knowing the daily rates of others in your industry helps you negotiate fees and get a better deal.
I’ve worked in the US, UK and now here in Asia and have seen a vast difference in the rates that writers work for.
Some of my friends in India work for $15 per hour, which works for them, while I know others in the Bay Area that are down to $25 per hour. Quite a drop as they were on $60 only 12 months back.
