Hourly Rates or Flat Fees?

I came across this article on design: talkboard while searching for tips on what to charge for my copywriting and copy editing services. While it is written specifically for designers, it gave me some ideas to consider. Hopefully it will be helpful to both those who are new to the world of freelancing and those experts who are looking to rethink their pricing.

It gives some food for thought: Do you take the specific client into account- an individual vs. corporation? Are you more inclined to charge hourly rates, or flat fees?

Hope this gives you a few factors you never thought to consider!
