Setting Hourly Time or Project Rate


As you are a self-employed person, not a salaried person, so you must only concern about your cost, your profitability or how much you want to invest on your business The main advantage for setting the hourly rate is that you are paid for the work you do. To track the time, you can use the time tracking software and you must also have a solid focus while working on your project. Some of the graphic designers don’t find an hourly rate

as a good option as because they can finish projects quickly and hours worked is not the only price consideration..
