Depends on your level - but $800 -$1200. Also recommend opening an LLC- I did mine through Legalzoom.com. Then track mileage and commute fees, memberships to trade websites, biz lunches, health insurance etc. The way the tax laws are now - you get diddly squat in write-offs as an individual but a lot more as a Corp. I use QuickBooks to track everything and consult an accountant frequently. Also get a credit card and biz bank account to keep everything separate

Does your LLC work with the new tax law and when getting paid under a W2?

Day rate is more typical. $600-$1,200 range really varies depends on agency, digital or broadcast, network or online content etc. Obviously depends too on yrs of experience.
