When I hire a writer, it's obvious what I can expect to pay. Lower quality content runs up to 2 cents per word. After 3 cents per word you get better worded articles, but nothing for your big money pieces. At 5 cents per word you could have consistent, quality blog content; it takes 7-10 cents at least, for every word written, to get something made that a high volume of readers should see. Now, video marketing is a whole different ball game and for many of us its a new playing field. I've already outsourced some videos for clients to respectable video production freelancers and companies. The results were a mixed bag and the interviewing process is a huge pain. With that said, there must be some sort of market rate ... ignoring all the actors shooting for Hollywood fame, there are many people like us that are just better on video than we are. Likely, the rates many see aren't necessary, yet no one really knows what's a fair pay. So what do you think? How would you price ... A custom 10 minute video with minimal animation, transitions, and constant talking ? A basic 10 minute video with talking to a webcam only ?
