Third Party Blogging – Charge Out Rates

Today I received another email from a company wanting to know how much I would charge to write a blog for them. It seems to be a semi regular (and increasing request that I get). I’m very interested in developing and maintaining blogs for others but am at a bit of a loss as to know how much such a service is worth. I know a number of readers of this blog do this type of work and was wondering if you’d be kind enough to give the rest of us (or just me via email) a hint at what the going rate is for this type of work?

Do you work it out per hour, per post, per week, per visitors generated, per % of revenue generated or some combination of the above?

I know how much I can make from one of my blogs but how much would you charge to blog for someone else? Feel free to leave a comment below either anonymously or with your details or shoot me an email with anything (specific or general) you’d like.

  1. It depends on the type of blogging required. Our current “target” is 10$/post, but we basically set a posting requirement and make that a monthly fee.

    So, 2 posts a day would be about 400$/month or something like that.

    But that’s just basic blogging. Obviously if someone is looking for environmental analysis blogging it’s a different rate because we’d need to find someone more qualified.
