So, are you ready to make some money by freelancing?
So, now that you’re going to take off on your own, how much can you make?
Mom Blogger, Jennifer James, shares, “Looking back and being completely candid, when I first started blogging I did a lot that I should have been paid for, but I seriously didn’t know any better. I was just a stay-at-home mom (in my eyes) and was thrilled to get an email from a PR firm that thought I was good enough to contact.”
Jennifer even says that some PR professionals are blaming Mom Bloggers for the ‘rewards and prizes’ compensation model. Is that what your marketing services are worth – a free stick of deodorant?

Now that you’ve decided you are indeed a professional, you need to set your rates with your services, market, and expertise in mind.
