Data for rates in the PR category

£301-350 per day was the most common day rate range for PR freelancers in 2019. With one of the highest average day rates (£383 per day), it shows how important brands and agencies recognise the skills of building relationships to maintain a positive public image.

As I take on more projects, I have also gained an insight into how best to work in these environments. That insight is valuable and useful to the client. I can take on almost any task and know I can deliver on their expectations, so my rate reflects my experience and dedication to doing the best job possible.
