Emphasis that your day rate. Is negotiable - aim high and be confident but if it’s too much for your client then be prepared to make adjustments to meet their budget (within reason). Always make sure you don’t drop below the limit of what you feel your work is worth.
The average contract length for Social freelancers was six weeks (29 working days) with the top 10% of projects lasting for at least 69 working days. With an ever developing skill set required in the discipline and new technologies emerging, we expect more changes to this discipline next year.

Hugely impressed by YunoJuno’s model. Concise communication flow allowed us to filter and interview within hours. Enabling us to work with excellent freelancers we wouldn’t have otherwise found. Game-changing.
The freelancers on YunoJuno are consistently of the highest calibre. It is also the easiest and most transparent recruitment service I have ever dealt with.
