Episode 77: Is My Design Fee Enough

Is my design fee enough? 

This is a very common question to have, especially when you’re making the transition from hourly rates to design fees. It’s hard to figure out what your fee should be, right? You want to ensure you’re getting paid for all your time and making a profit but you might feel like no one will pay for your services if you price them too high. I can help. 

Your design fee won’t be perfect when you’re getting started, no one’s is, but if you work on it, you’ll start to find the sweet spot. That’s what I’m going to help you with in this episode. I’m sharing five simple things for you to remember when you’re working out your perfect design fee.

Topics We Cover in This Episode: 

  • Things to consider when developing your fees 
  • How to get paid for all your time when you’re not charging hourly 
  • Setting clear boundaries in your letter of agreement
  • Why giving away your time won’t make clients like you more
  • The importance of clear deliverables 
  • When to schedule your purchasing meetings every time 
  • How to know if your design fee is high enough

Over time, you’ll get a better idea of where you want your design fee to be, but hopefully, this episode will help you fast-track the process a little so that you can make sure you’re getting paid enough right now. Whether you’re new to design fees or you’ve been working with them for a while, this episode has something for you.
