This topic has been discussed to death. Yes, it's a free market out there, people can charge whatever price, accept whatever price, it goes on.Originally Posted by Belle&Sebastain
The kind of work your produce and how your price yourself will determine what sort of clients you attract. Take weddings as an example, we all know it's a market flooded with part-timers under-cutting each other. For example, one of my assistants laughed when she read that people can charge as low as $350-400 for a full day wedding (with prints) in the case of the thread that we see in Singaporebrides.com posted by Gilbert.
Drumma: we all learn from incidents like these. $400 is what I get from ang boa from my kind of clients and their parents, really. That's the kind of clients I'm working for now.
If you want to attract the pasar malam kind of clients, you can price yourself low, but remember, anyone can always be cheaper than you, short of doing it free.
