Am I completely bugging or is this a crazy ask? Someone reached out to me via LinkedIn from an agency that manages fast-fashion brands.

She asked me what I charge for 100-word product descriptions and I said I would charge about $350 for 10 descriptions. That puts me at around a half hour for each description - for a grand hourly of $70/hour.

She comes back with someone writes 100, 100-word descriptions per day for $300.

I’m like…. what? Should I propose a lower quantity or disregard?
