We already have a freelance hourly rate calculator to help you set your hourly rates to reach your income goal. This is a different kind of rate calculator. It’s designed to let you break down everything involved in a project to find out what you’re really earning on an hourly basis — not just billable time but also factoring in related marketing, admin work, client communication, etc. Play with it and see how much you’re really earning per hour.
