Bridie’s Small Business Blog
I recently had an enquiry from a potential client looking to replace their current transcription service. Unfortunately, my prices were more than their budget allowed, as they were only paying their current transcriber 30c per recorded minute.
I understand that some businesses simply don’t have the budget to use my services – and that’s OK. When you’re a small business or a freelancer starting out, every cent counts.
But thirty cents per recorded minute equates to an hourly rate of less than $5.
My in-laws visited recently, and while they were here they invested in a caravan so they can visit more often and see more of our wonderful country without it costing a small fortune.
