At GDB, we’re committed to providing amazing content to help freelancers at all levels escape agency life and build a business you love.

We especially love tackling your tough questions, and there may be no tougher aspect of freelancing than determining what you should charge.

That’s why I spent the better part of a year developing How Much Should I Charge, GDB’s all-new eBook bundle!

A note from Preston:
This is perhaps the best ebook we’ve released to date here at GDB. The book goes on sale in one week (preorder here) and we’re giving away one free copy plus a chance to win a 30-minute video Q&A session with the book’s author and freelancing pro, April Greer, plus a bonus ebook only available inside Stoked, Break Through: 5 common excuses to starting a business and how to crush them without breaking a sweat. 

For details on how to enter to win the ebook, video session, or bonus ebook, read through the end of this post.

Ok, back to April.

What’s included in the bundle:

While the eBook itself is super-beneficial (and 100% doable for even the most right-brained creatives), I have added some incredible additional content to further simplify the exercises and boost your pricing confidence. Here’s what you’ll get:

  • The full eBook: How Much Should I Charge
  • An easy-to-follow spreadsheet to do all of the math required for the exercises in the eBook
  • Advice and answers from veteran entrepreneurs on tough pricing questions
  • BONUS Appendix of budgeting, accounting, and freelancing resources

Preorder your copy here for just $15.

Is this bundle for you?

We totally get it – you want to be certain that this small investment is going to be worth your hard-earned cash.

And I want you to be absolutely thrilled with your purchase, so here are a few answers to common questions we’ve received about How Much Should I Charge.

Is How Much Should I Charge only applicable to US freelancers?

Nope! This bundle focuses on figuring out how much to charge based on your unique (personal and professional) situation, not on a local dollar amount.

Does How Much Should I Charge have any content for veteran freelancers?

From accounting and budgeting to financial wisdom to time-tracking suggestions and a conversation on industry standards and intellectual worth, I did my best to provide quality content for all experience levels of freelancers.

What if circumstances change? Won’t How Much Should I Charge be outdated?

No! The content in this bundle is designed to adapt to life, which is constantly changing. Not only can you see how paying off your car loan will increase your profits, you can also determine whether your dream home can become a reality.

I’m not a designer. Will How Much Should I Charge apply to my business?

Yes! How Much Should I Charge is written for all service-based entrepreneurs (even non-creatives). So even your cousin starting a tree removal business would benefit from this financial wisdom.

Which pricing system does How Much Should I Charge embrace?

How Much Should I Charge applies to your financial situation no matter whether you prefer to price hourly, per project, or on a value-based system. It’s all about creating financial stability and pricing confidence rather than touting a specific system.

I’m absolutely thrilled to bring you this latest amazing tool for improving your business. If you purchase the bundle, please send us an email, post on our Facebook page, or Tweet and let us know what you’ve found to be most helpful for you.

We can’t wait for your feedback! Preorder your copy here for just $15 and start earning what you deserve today!

  1. Pick me! This is relevant to my interests!

  2. I always have trouble deciding how much I *should* be charging my clients. It’s always too low so if there is a system where I can break down everything and make sure I am not over charging (something I fear)- I’m all over it.

    • Kausar,

      This ebook sounds like a great fit for you – it helps you take the guesswork out of how much you need to charge and helps you put into perspective what you should be charging. I’ve added a Q&A section with veteran service-based entrepreneurs on how they tackle pricing, too, so you can read their answers to tough questions we all have on pricing.

      Thanks for sharing! Tons of readers have these same fears.

      April
