Valuing Your Work: Tips and Tricks for Getting What You’re Worth

Posted on May 10, 2016 by


What's your work worth?

What’s your work worth?

An unknown philosopher once said, “Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.” What’s your work worth?

When I was asking Karen Swim from SoloPRPro about topics for this week’s #SMChat / #SoloPR combination Twitter chat, she mentioned that there have been many stories lately about associations, publishers and event clients devaluing work or wanting free work.

I was intrigued and thought our audience would be too, so we’re switching the usual social media and marketing topics up to discuss how to make sure your compensation is equal to your the value that your provide.

We’re hoping that you’ll be able to provide some tips and tricks during our chat on valuing your work in order to get what you’re worth.

  1. How do you establish value for your work? Is it based on competitors, skill set or something else?
  2. When do you discount your prices, if ever? To get/keep an account, long-term client, high volume, etc.
  3. Is it ever ok to do work for free? What’s an example of a situation where you’d provide free work?
  4. On the other hand, what if your value is higher than the market? Do you justify the differences? How?
  5. What are your best tips and tricks for getting what you’re worth?
