This month's Tel Aviv Freelance Writers Cafe was animated and information-packed; Rick Teplitz walked us through the framework of pricing and billing projects from tech writing to marketing writing to editing to translation. Follow this link to Rick's presentation outline.
Again, a healthy numbered crowd - nearly 20 - gathered at the Press Cafe and questions posed during the meeting included: Can I ask for half up front? What constitutes a page? When I bill on an hourly basis does that also account for phone time, travel and meetings? Answers: You can but it's uncommon, 250 words, & yes, if you budget it in. Thanks to Rick for a well done, informative evening. If you missed him in Tel Aviv, you might want to check out his pricing presentation at the upcoming Techshoret Conference on January 18th.
Next month: How to Get Your Foot in the Door: Self Marketing for Success. February 13th at 19:00. Details to follow...
In the interim, enjoy the images and please message if you have questions. Thanks again to Svi Ben-Elya for hosting us here on Elephant and for coming all the way from Yokneam!...Stephanie
