In this issue of Freelancing.HK-News, we will publish our recent study on the hourly rates of freelancers in Hong Kong. The rate charged by freelancers for their work varies greatly, ranging from 60 HKD per hour to 2300 HKD per hour. The analysis of the nine most important service categories shows that an hourly rate comparison is really worthwhile. This is because the hourly rates do not depend solely on the service and the service providers. Other factors also play a role, such as the gender and age of the service provider. Surprisingly, even the hourly rates of comparable freelancers differ by a factor of more than two and some freelancers even invoice very different hourly rates depending on the customer or the project.
Moreover, we have eight tips for freelancers who are determined to tell the world what they can do and further focus their goals to gain new clients.
In our freelancer article, an accountant will give you tips on how to set up a full-fledged controlling system and finally, the freelancer joke of the month is about a smart engineer who is not taken seriously by management.
Despite the Corona crisis, I wish you a lot of fun reading and of course, as always, success in business!
