Late to the party on this one. And I'm not a social media consultant or any kind of serious blogger...but I have run my own consultancy business (and egads, made some money!). I found clients would initially baulk at my 'schedule of fees' until I reminded them how much they spent on agencies with their overheads and often inflated hourly rates etc. And for what? Didn't they want me involved because that arrangement wasn't giving them what they were looking for? Set the rate high and don't give your time away. Be ruthless with both. I used to charge clients extra if they needed more than 2 amendments to plans I wrote for them...forcing them to really think about whether they were making good use of MY time and THEIR money. Sticking to this attitude takes some backbone and determination but it's the only way you'll get paid.
