What are your income goals or preferences as a freelancer?
I am currently working for a freelance writing site that pays a moderate fee per written word. It is probably not as high paying as the writing jobs one can find on sites such as Freelancer or Upwork, but the writing jobs do not require bidding, the site pays consistently, and the writers can work continuously and decide how much work to take in a day. I'm fine with this arrangement as this means earning cash consistently.
How about you? Do you prefer to always aim high and wait till you acquire clients who are wiling to pay your best rates or would you settle for a lower paying but regularly occurring job where you can put in more work to achieve your daily income goals?
