As a part-time/full-time freelancer for over 18 years now, I’ve tried to keep industry pricing for services around the same hourly rate unless the client prefers a project based pricing structure. Recently, one of my clients(middle man) needed a revision for an email design that I produced for him that he in turn, would complete for his client. At what point do you draw a line for billing your services? I spoke with a few colleagues and went with their suggestions which were invoice your services at 30 minute intervals.
