The side effect of this approach is, that your freelance earnings will be maximized in the long run. When someone hires you, he/she has some sort of project to create. And they hope, that at the end of the business transaction, they will end up with more value than they paid to you.

If you do value-based pricing (and I believe you should do it 99% of the time), then you are basically getting a share from the value you deliver to your client. So we can establish a rule: the more value you deliver to your client, the bigger is your share

Based on the rule, we can formulate an optimal strategy, which is to deliver as much value to your client, as possible

The performance of your website is directly tied to the revenue you get from it. It’s a multiplication of all the work you’ve put into it. The faster your site, the more money you earn from it.

The good thing is, you have a direct influence over the performance of your WordPress website. You can make it faster by yourself, but it’s a relatively specialist task. So it could make sense to hire someone like me, who specializes in making things fast.

How many resources should you invest? It depends on the type of site. If you are running an e-commerce store, you will naturally invest more than into a one-pager about your local freelance business.

Your WordPress hosting environment is both the foundation and limiting factor of your online presence. You should choose it very, very carefully because your business rises and falls with it

You should be looking for reliable hosting, where you can test all your changes before going live. If something goes wrong, you need to be able to restore your website in one click. It should be fast and offer you all the tools to make it even faster. There also should be skilled support, in case a problem arises (and this happens more often than you would like it to, trust me).

Would you like to wake up full of energy and feel that way all day? What about having crystal clear thinking - free from brain fog? Want to be productive all the time? Great, you are in the right place. 

In the past 7 years, I went from being an overweight individual smoking 30 cigarettes per day, feeling almost dead by 5pm, to a sports enthusiast. I lost 30kg. I now exercise twice a day. I feel absolutely incredible the whole time I am awake. 

Do you often feel like your projects are taking much longer than you anticipated? That your hourly rate is like $15 for one hour of deep work? Is your client bleeding you with endless iterations on your project? Can’t see any light at the end of the tunnel? The bad news is that it is almost certainly your fault. The good news is: I’ve been there too and I’ve done a good portion of work to escape from this trap. Through the system I’ve created, I’m able to comfortably reach my target hourly rate and I’m willing to share my way with you through this ultimate guide. Beware, I’m not offering any magic pill here, rather ideas and systems which have been proven in the freelance field.
