Bryce Bladon discusses an awards gala specifically for freelancers, how much designers and developers earn as freelancers, and a few ways designers and devs can earn even more.
Bryce discusses: The first annual Freelancers Unite Awards in Canada Co-Op founder Adam Roach's reasons for the awards
Matthew Brown, The Founder of Bonsai, a freelance invoice and contracting app The big takeaways from the Bonsai's freelance rate explorer: Developers earn 30% more than designers. The hourly rates of designers (especially graphic designers) remain sticky at under $60 an hour at all geographies and experience levels. Developers quickly begin increasing their hourly rates after gaining 3 years of experience Designers tend to increase their hourly rates at a slower pace. The biggest increase in hourly rates happens when freelancers reach 3–5 years of experience
Ways to increase your rate, such as: Proving the value of your services Knowing and understanding your ideal client Scheduling rate increases Changing the philosophy that drives your prices
