Hourly freelance rate for PR agencies


New Member
Hi. I want to start contacting PR agencies for freelance graphic design work but I am not sure how much to charge. I currently do work for design agencies and have hourly rates ranging from £30-£35, I have been working for myself as a graphic designer for 14 years. I would ideally like to charge £40ph but don't want to put a potential client off if this is a bit much. Does anyone have any experience of working with PR agencies or know about them who could help? Thanks in advance.
I feel ridiculous offering you advice as you've got twice as much industry knowledge and experience than I do, however if you feel your time is worth £40 an hour, is there any harm in testing the water with that sort of fee to see how it goes?
hi. thanks for your response. i guess i don't want to waste any opportunities by over pricing to start with, maybe it's the only way of finding out though.
