Freelance Writers: What Is Your Ideal Charge Per Word?

8

We can all agree that freelance writers in Nigeria are not as well paid as the ones in the United States and other developed countries of the world. Nonetheless, a few here have managed to make a decent living out of it. Many get their "oyibo" clients directly from platforms like UpWork and Fiverr, then pass the jobs down to the freelancers here in Nigeria. As you can imagine, the former makes a whole lot more than the latter (who charge between N1 to N5 per word). We can all agree that content creation is no easy task, and even N10 per word doesn't match up to the quality write-ups you are delivering. That being said, how much do you see fit as your ideal charge per word?
