As humans we all need money to survive here on earth. Therefore, what ever skills and service one render, he or she deserves a pay. These includes writing, but as for someone who is new to the writing club what's the standard minimum charge per project?

How much you earn as a writer depends on the kind of work you are doing and who you are working for.As for me I earn a minimum $25 doing freelancing for my clients at up work and fiverr.

The benefit of a writer is proportional to the work he does, which depends on the company that hires him. Some companies pay for words, others for hours of work, and others pay for the quantity and quality of the presentation of work. In conclusion, there is no specific amount for the writer.

Payment of a writer depends on the site and the conditions they lay down. I prefer writing and publishing to writing to pay because the payment won't even justify the stress except on some rare occasions.

Payment of writers varies, it depends on which writing you are specific with. Copywriter, SEO writer, proofreader, contents writer, blog writer etc. They don't receive same salaries, it differs. It also depends solely on the kind of job you're offered, and the client you work for.

The two most common ways to charge your clients as a writer is to pay per hour or pay per word. Do get it twisted, I will explain better.

If the client want to hire you to do research on a topic and come up with unique material, then the best way to charge the client through pay per hour. The minimum charge for an average writer is $12/hr.

If it happens that you have a paid thread on popular marketplace like Warrior forum, Black hat world, freelancer etc par per word is the best way to charge the clients. This can be $70 per 1000 words depending on numbers of contents the client want to purchase.

being a new writer doesn't necessarly mean that you will be doing bad, you just have to gain a positive feedback and prove that you are capable of professional writing and everything will go fine, unless you lack of creativity in writing, then i would say, 3$ or so per one blog of like 300 words or so would be fine (personal opinion)

As a writer you need to be creative and know how to research before you will be able to earn a lot of goodies from your work. As for the pay, you can earn up to $50 on a single project if you're not getting the project from a third party. Just go on to freelancing website like Fiverr and upwork to create an account and start working with your skills.

Writers can work full or part time, and earn a supplemental income to help cover the bills or generate a lucrative primary income. ... If you have the skills and the motivation, get to define your own career

If a writer writes from the given material than the pay should be $20 dollar but, if a writer writes with her or his own knowledge and find material with different sites amd books and than writes it own words than the pay should be $50.

The pay for a writer depends on the kind of writing that he does and also depends on the caliber of the writer. When I was writing for a pet magazine (Animal Scene is the largest pet magazine here) I get paid 700 pesos for each article (that's about $14). For the e-magazine of the movie industry they pay me $10 per article but that is easier for me to write. For another magazine called Panorama they paid my articles 750 pesos, just a slightly higher than the $14. For the bigger pay was my film script (called screenplay) that was more than 100 pages of regular bond paper - I earned $500 for that effort.

Writing could be lucrative, however, there is no minimum pay charged for writing as this depends on the nature of the write up, the complexity of the article, the amount of pages and even the skill level of the writer. Generally, writers are paid between $10 to $1000 depending on the project at hand.

Writers do not have a fixed pay, it all depends on where they work, some writers earn more than others all because of where they work. Freelancers are paid according to the quantity of their writing jobs.

I started as a writer. I have written a 500 words articles just for $1 as well as for $10. How much I charge for my writing services depend on how much the client is willing to pay. These days my asking rate is $20 for 1000 words. However, I am willing to lower my rate for volume works.

As a writer you should not expect anyone to tell you the amount you can receive. Because this depends on several things.

It depends on how good you are, it also depends on the client you're writing for or the company you're working for.

It also depends on how tedious the work is. So when you put all this into consideration... You should know how much to charge.

There are basically five types of freelance writing rates. By the project, or flat rate by the hour by the word by the page retainer fee, for ongoing work. Most businesses hiring freelance writers will prefer to pay by the project or by retainer if they're going to want regular ongoing work. Example- If you want to work 20 hours a week, 50 weeks a year, and earn $30,000, you need to take work that pays you $30 per hour $30,000 ÷ 50 weeks = $600 per week. $600 ÷ 20 hours = $30 per hour. If you find a job that pays you $50 per article, and you can write that article in less than 2 hours, that would meet your goal of an average of $30 per hour.

I won't say there is a minimum payment for a writer. The minimum pay a writer says his or her pay should be, is what it will be. So, your minimum pay should be reasonable and in closeness to the ones you see Other writers state.
