What is the hourly rate you'd expect for content creation?


by @florentin | 5yr  | 5 comments

Hey guys. Starting to offer content creation services online.
What is the hourly rate I should expect?
Iโ€™ve seen developers talk about 5-6$ per hour. Should I expect less?
Any differences between US and Europe?
Any tip would really helpโ€ฆ

To me, domain expertise, grammar, and style are the 3 pillars to base pay. I am pretty certain that at $5-6 per hour, I will need an editor for grammar, fact-checking, and tone. Topics will be basic.

For $5-15, I presume I can get grammatically correct content on basic topics.

Above $15 and up, you have smart college students, all the way up to domain experts producing good, technical work.

Hereโ€™s what Iโ€™ve done in the past when I had employed a research team for my own business for nutrition content: I paid them $.10 cents per word, all inclusive = Research, writing, and revisions. They were US based, because slang and cultural references are important to me in content that was targeted at a US audience.

I would say much, much higher than $5-$6 per hour. How much higher would depend on your experience and the market for what youโ€™re doing. I do content marketing online and usually charge between USD$25-$30, which is really low for the work I do. Have you had a look at UpWork and seen what other people are charging?

Thanks for that! UpWork is tricky. There are people from all over the globe there,
and the experience plays an important factor. So itโ€™s hard to say. Since Iโ€™m not creating the content, and just summarizing it, I think 20-25$ hourly would be a lot.

What's the best place to incorporate an online business?

 

by @octave | 2yr 1 year ago | 63 comments

I have an commerce website. We get around 1000 orders per month and this is going to get quite a bit bigger in next few years.

I am British. I live in Thailand.
Im not allowed to majority own a Thai business and small foreign entrepreneurs are not really welcome. So i need an offshore company.

I need PayPal and an ecommerce internet merchant account. Also looking at alternatives like worldpay. 2checkout etc

Does PayPal need me to be a resident to the country i register my account to? Are there complications being a non resident to get other payment solutions?

Apparently in Hong Kong you need 2 years trading history to get an Internet Mechant Account and they generally turn their noses up at those with less than $1m(us) a year turn over. Singapore seems a bit easier.

I really want to avoid paperwork and book keeping. I hate it.

So i was looking at Seychelles, Panama, BVI, Belize.

Does anyone have experience with payment providers in these countries?

Most nomads i see donโ€™t really have a high volume of small monthly transactions which i do. Im going around in circles and donโ€™t know where to start.

Ill also need a bank account for business and a personal bank account to pay my salary into

What's the best location to incorporate an online business?


by @dmftaras | 4yr 4 years ago | 14 comments

Hey nomads,

Iโ€™m looking for the best location to incorporate my online business (offshore programming and so on).

The main requirements:

  • Low cost incorporation/yearly fee
  • Preferred with no audits (or other kind of paperwork)
  • With no local office/secretary/director needed
  • With low or 0% taxes
  • Easy to get paid from US/EU
  • Easy to send payments worldwide ( I can use Transferwise/Stripe or something like that, i donโ€™t care )
  • With corporate credit/debit cards

Iโ€™m only one owner of the company (not EU/US resident).
Iโ€™ve checked jurisdictions like BVI/Belize/Nevis and iโ€™m interested in it. It would be appreciated if you could give me some kind of advice, if you have experience with one of these jurisdictions.

My budget for incorporation < $1500

Thanks!

I currently have a log of cheques form clients written to my name.

Iโ€™m not yet setup as a corporation in Hong Kong, but am thinking about doing so. Will I be able to deposit these cheques from my name into my business bank account?

Also, I wish to continue to receive cheques to my name. Will I be able to deposit them into my business based in Hong Kong?

How to optimize corporate taxation as a digital nomad company?

 

by @digital | 4yr 4 years ago | 24 comments

Hi guys :smiley:

I manage a French limited company. My business partner and I are digital nomads. The company pays all companyโ€™s expenditures and we pay ourselves for our plane tickets, accommodations, and so on. We would save a lot of money if the company could pay for some of our expenditures but we need to justify that these expenditures are for-business only. Have you ever have this experience?

More broadly, how can we optimize our corporate taxation as digital nomad companies?

One of my thoughts is to consider ourselves as expatriates. Therefore, the company should pay some of our expenses such as travel, accommodation, or school for children. It will be great for the company because it will decrease its profits (i.e. its taxation). But, how to justify setting up a expat contract?

If you have any advice for us and other digital nomad companies, please share :smile:

Help me to come up with a better strategy to choose where to go next


by @nunoarruda | 4yr 4 years ago | 9 comments

Iโ€™m a digital nomad with a goal of visiting as many different cities as possible.

I travel each month to a different city (with good weather) in a different country and I never repeat the same country in the same year for diversity (except when visiting home).

I choose where to go next by pinpointing the top cities from the nomadlist.com (which is constantly updated according to the weather, if Iโ€™m not mistaken) in a personal Google Map, I then see whatโ€™s the nearest country according to my current location and I plan everything 1 or 2 months ahead.

In December I always go home (Portugal) to spend time with my family and then in January I start all again.

Sometimes in order to get to the โ€œnearestโ€ pinpointed country I have to take 2/3 flights which can be expensive and time consuming. This is when I think I might not be making the best move.

Do you guys have any advice that might improve my strategy?

Need to incorporate and pay myself dividend income. Where is good option?


by @kittytana | 5yr 4 years ago | 6 comments

Hello, Iโ€™ve been earning online for the past 2 years and had no need to incorporate. But now Iโ€™m applying for a citizenship and one of the requirements is that I own a business that pays myself a dividend income. I make money in USD and get paid through a personal US bank account. Iโ€™m NOT a US citizen or resident. Been living as a tourist in many places for 2 years. Iโ€™m looking at Belize and Panama but not sure what it might entail? In terms of money logistics, Iโ€™m not understanding how that would work? Anyone has experience in this?

Does your freelance rate fluctuate per location?


by @jasonmwomack | 5yr 4 years ago | 3 comments

I am a web developer and content writer. As of right now , I reside in Atlanta, Georgia . My plan is to move abroad soon. At this point , I am not sure where to set up my home base . Anyways , my real question is about rates. How do web developers decide the most suitable charging rate ? Letโ€™s say a client is in need of a full website and e-commerce platform. That client resides in Paris , but another client in a low income country wants the same service. Does your charging rate depend on the clientโ€™s location ? That was a hypothetical situation. I am a new to this stuff! I do not have any clients yet .

What's a normal rate for accomodation in Manila?


in Manila, Philippines by @acdc | 5yr 4 years ago | 4 comments

Coming here for business for 1st-30th June. Accommodation seems very expensive even a way out of the city, around $700 USD for anything remotely decent. Two bedroom (ideal, meeting someone) is around $1200 USDโ€ฆ almost more than you can get on Air BnB in Australia for something thatโ€™s way out in the burbs & low quality.

Any ideas or is this normal rate? Hardly the super cheap haven Iโ€™ve read about :frowning:

In everyone else's experience, do others rate working remotely as highly as we do?


by @munly_leong | 5yr 5 years ago | 7 comments

I got inspired when someone else mentioned that nomads/100% remoters are kind of niche and even hard to find vs the norm. Is this really the case in other peopleโ€™s experience?

I know most would jump at the chance if it was offered, at the same time for most people I know it would be a first for them and many I know would struggle with the self mgmt/productivity aspect but given time most would probably be onboarded successfully.

What I described as my ideal, speaking to another startupper a few months ago she described it as her hell. She would not want to be isolated and wants to see her team every day and hang out with them.

Hi there,

Me and my 2 partners have opened a HK company and a corporate bank account at HSBC in HK.

We are wondering where is the best place to open personal bank accounts to pay ourselves dividends / salaries. Is HSBC in HK a good idea or shall we rather open personal bank accounts in other juridictions than HK?

Thanks a lot for your help!

What's the best visa strategy for US citizen staying in Bali for 5-6 months?


by @nihilista | 5yr 5 years ago | 4 comments

From what Iโ€™ve researched I can get a Visa on arrival and then extend that by another 60 days. (Is it around $60-70 for the original plus extension?)

But what about if I would like to plan for staying longer - should I get the 60 day visa that I can extend for 120 days?

Also, what is the process for extending the Visa? Do I need to leave the country to do so? In the first scenario, with the 30 day VOA and addโ€™l 30 day extension, is it possible to stay longer by leaving and then coming back? Is there a limit for how many days one needs to leave the country and how many times this process can be repeated in any given time period (i.e. a year)?

Thanks very much for any help / advice / information!
