Subject:FW: Billable Opps and Fees From:Gina Hertel <Ghertel -at- ALPHA88 -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 12 Feb 1998 13:45:58 -0500
I should have clarified my "Billable Opps and Fees" post.
I was referring not to freelance work but to different billable
opportunities and payment arrangements for technical communicators who
are employees of a corporation.
The question again, then, is.....
What kinds of billable services to do you provide?
> Obviously, many of us bill for the time we contribute to the app
> development process.
> Then there are other kinds of billable techcomm projects as well.
> Just recently, for example, I billed for the time I spent preparing a
> technical presentation for some IT professionals.
> So, my question is... what other kind of billable opportunities are
> out there and how/ how much do you bill for them?
