EFA Con 2019: “How Should I Price It?”: Pricing and Estimating Workshop with Jake “Dr. Freelance” Poinier
This session kicks off with a brief overview of pricing and estimating strategy before transitioning into a fast-paced interactive workshop. Participants will be given sample project descriptions to create hypothetical estimates for potential clients. Based on parameters such as page/word count, tasks required, deadline, and client behaviors, they’ll need to quickly crunch the numbers and decide how they’d approach the estimate. There are no wrong answers … but working through problems and hearing solutions from fellow attendees and guidance from the session leader will offer real-world insights on securing more freelance jobs at better rates.
