Hi. I just signed up on Guru.com for freelance jobs. I am getting my feet wet in freelancing to make some extra money for our household. I got two project notifications for transcription projects. I am starting to work on bid proposals for these jobs. One job is transcribing a video verbatim for a transcript and the other one is transcribing an audio interview. Can you advise me on the rates that I should charge that are competitive?

I really appreciate any imput that you can give me?

Thanks!

Hi Sharon, welcome to the board. My DSL has been down, so I've missed quite a few introductions, I'm just now catching up! How did the bid proposals go?

Hi Tammy.

I am new at everything. I love being a stay at home mom. I looked on Guru.com and checked to see the rates other professionals are charging. Majority are charging $8-$10 per hr. The two proposals I talked about didn't go. One I felt wasn't worth my time, and the other that I wanted to was closed by the employer. I just check time to time to see and submit proposals on some others, which I'll be doing soon. I'm also trying to finish my degree in social work and trying to get my feet wet as a writer. As for being a writer, I have a half done manuscript that I'm working on and a presentation that is due Monday.
