Freelancer Calculator

There are vague guidelines regarding negotiation strategies around what you can charge at each career ‘level’ – but in truth it is often a careful calculation between what you want and what you think you can get for the project.

It is as dangerous to under-charge as to over-charge… over-estimating your daily rate can price you out of the market and you lose the gig, under-charging however can undermine your experience, make your services seem too junior, seem naive to market forces and allow clients to think you are a push over.

That’s why has teamed up with AddedBytes to provide you with the below, the only freelance calculator you will ever need – full visibility, full understanding and fully loaded with all the detail you need to quote your rate.
