    I am offering a service where I will be managing three social media accounts(instagram, facebook, and twitter). When I say managing I mean daily content publishing etc. These accounts are for the most popular online news source in my town(TOWN not a big city). Anyway the news source is definitely known my almost everyone in my town. How much should I ask to be paid a month/week? What is a reasonable price? I was thinking $100 a week but im not sure if that's too high or too low. ($100 a week ~ $15 per hour and 1 hour a day). Is that too high too low? Lmk your thoughts please.

    It depends on your KPIs. How many posts per day? Copy-paste or you have to write your own words?

    How many hours per day do you intend to actually spend messing around of these? If its just a couple hours or so over a week then you simply need to total up the hours you've spend on an average month and multiply that times what you feel is a fair hourly wage for your work. Also factor in that you have a normal 9-5 job that will be your primary focus over this. I've seen similar services to this freelanced around $200-$400 a month, so do your research on sites like Freelancer and the like before you throw out a random number and look foolish.

    Calculate the amount of work per hour you need to do and charge a rate per hour.

    yeah totally depends on your schedule and the content you publish and which city you live in (even more, which country you live in).
