To my writers/content creators and alike, how much do you charge to write content for someone? And do you charge them hourly or by cents per word? I’ve been offered a small contract for 10 hours per week and not sure what my rate should be or how I should set it up

I usually charge a flat fee. Eliminates the debate about how long something should take. For other professionals, flat $500 for resume, press release etc. They provide info, I write. I would take the gig because it will give you clips and reference if you’re just getting started.

Do a one hour test. Write something and edit it within that hour and see what sorta useful output you can get. Extrapolate that out to ten hours and figure what's a good rate. If you do 500 words an hour, at 10 hrs a week, that's 5000 words. At even ten cents a word that's 500 usd. Pick more like 20 cents a word and it's 100 usd an hour/1k per week.

As a Consultant, your full time jobs hourly rate is around 65-90 an hour. Use that as a barometer if you have to

How do you find clients to do this type of work?

I got lucky. An old professor randomly reached out once he launched his start up

How would you go about finding a remote AE role with a 100k base?

I have about 7-8 years of sales experience and have consistently out performed my OTE. I absolutely love my current role but I feel like I have out grown the company as there isn't a ton of opportunity to make more than I am currently making.

I opened up my LinkedIn to recruiters but all the offers are 60-70k base and 120-140k OTE. I am shooting for MINIMUM 80k base but ideally 100k or more.

What would you do?

Need advice: I’ve accepted a job with Company A. Solid company, Fortune 20, salary $115k, Manager level. I start in a week. Company B, also Fortune 20, reached out for an interview for Senior Manager level, $140K salary. I took the interview as I was curious to learn about it and was moved to the second round. Since I start with Company A in a week, I’m hesitant to continue on but it’s obviously a better opportunity. Any advice? I don’t want to burn any bridges but it might come to that.

VENT: I feel completely demotivated after our new FOW announcement and it gave me whiplash. Working here has been a dream, so it feels weirdly hurtful to be publicly celebrated as part of the “expanded talent pool” in announcements, but be told privately that my return to the office will be accompanied by a massive pay cut because of where I live. I didn’t choose to live here/move, the company chose ME where I’m at. I feel like I don’t belong because everyone else seems happy with this.
