Smile Writing Charge

How much do you usually charge for a 500 word article for article directory submission purposes, say it's for Ezine?

For 500 words, I charge $30 unless no research involved, then I charge $20-$25. I never have a problem getting this rate but it also depends on experience and the client's expectations. If you are unsure and really want the gig, I'd give a lower rate, like $20. I always try to feel the client out before giving a quote.

Thanks for giving me an idea. I usually charge $15 for a 500-word article. I might as well increase my quotes on these articles. Thanks much

Just the text, I charge $30. If they want me to upload, put in a meta description, add a photo, and all that, $35.

Thanks for the idea. I really should increase my rate. I'm doing Ezine articles, I'm charging $15 most of the time.
