Default i think i might have landed myself a freelance 3d job?

as the title suggests, i think i've landed a job,

the company said they might have some mesh clean up jobs for me to do,

now, heres the thing they asked me what my daily rate of pay was,

this is my first freelance job, and wanted to know what i should charge,

i want the daily rate of pay to be competative, so how much should i ask for?,

by the way i'm in england so if anyone could tell me how much i should charge in 's that would be nice,

Hey Jali

Welll done mate.


Hmm its a tough one especially in the current climate. If its your first freelance job be reasonable as it may help get you more work. But also being freelance does open the door to a better price than if you were an actual employee of the company. I would suggest starting with around 20 quid an hour, 5 hrs is a 100 quid so not a bad days work. But dont go any less than 15 if they haggle. And sell yourself too - thats a must.
