I’ve never freelanced before and was asked to provide my day rate for a freelance opportunity by tonight! There’s 2 gigs: the first is a pitch and sounds like a race to the finish/wild Wild West situation. We only have 2 weeks to plan. The 2nd is a 5-week go-to-market strategic plan. Both would be “full time.” Not sure if I can or should provide different rates, and also not sure how much to charge. I have 6 years of experience working as an FTE at an agency. Appreciate any advice! Thanks!!

What would you do: in discussion with a small agency to potentially work full time. They wanted to do a 60 day engagement first to see if its a good fit. Kick the tires from both parties makes sense. They asked for my rates and gave them an hourly freelance rate to where they asked if I’d be willing to do a rate that was based off my “future” un-guaranteed employment salary, less than $100/hr, which was less than half my freelance rate. Does this sound fishy? Am I wrong to be skeptical?
