Are you charging for auditing services?

When you’re scoping, don’t forget to charge for audits!

Welcome to Scope Smarter, Not Harder, a series from Wethos highlighting our services and scope of work templates from the Wethos Services Library. In this installment, we’re highlighting audits! Have you been asked to “go through assets” or “sift through past content” over and over? That means you’re performing audits! But not everyone knows the language for this — and as a result, they don’t always charge for it. Well, here we are telling you that, yes, you should be charging for those auditing services!

Wethos users have access to over 60 scope of work templates and 700 services ranging from brand strategy to social media and design. Our scope of work tools streamline your proposal process so you can skip the freelance pricing mistakes and get to work.

Please note that our pricing suggestions are relational and the numbers inputted by users inform the recommendations over time. If you have feedback on the pricing below, please let us know: @wethosco on social! We always want our system to become smarter with your help.

Here are a few auditing services to include in your next scope of work!

1. Audit aspirational brands: 1 report for $1,500
