I have recently done some freelance 'journalism' on subjects near to an area of expertise and, here in the UK, the going rate is about £200 per thousand words. As an SME, you are probably going to be able to produce the words at a similar or faster rate rate than I did, so you would be making good use of your time at an equivalent rate in the local currency.

If it is US, taking into account cost of living differences I would pitch at around $200-225 per thousand, so about $1,500 per pamphlet.

Gene's rationale also works for me.

Best regards,

I've been offered an opportunity to do 7,000-word pamphlets in my area of expertise. A per-pamphlet flat-rate has been offered. Having been contracted on a hourly and salary rate, I'm a bit at a loss to know what rate to negotiate toward.

I know there are so many variables here (geographic area, etc.), but is can some of you give me an idea where to start?
