I am myself quite new to the Internet marketing world but had learned the basics with the help of Internet ( mainly BHW ). But, I do meet some newbies here and there and it is quite funny negotiating with them. Few days back, I was talking to a client who wanted me to write articles for him. He asked me to write few articles for his website and asked me the rate for it. From the conservation, it was quite clear that he had no idea about the current rates in the market. Still, I told him the actual rate and he accepted. After I gave him the articles, he asked me which software I used for spinning. He thought the articles to be too cheap the rate I wrote for him($1 per 100 words). Now today I was approached by a guy who wanted to do some work. I asked him if he could do forum posting and finally he agreed for Rs 250 per 500 posts. It is the price asked by him. Now I strongly feel confused in these cases. Am I doing anything wrong here ? Has it happened to you also ?
