Founders Weekly: How to get a pay rise

Our guide tells you how to increase money in your pocket

If you are feeling the squeeze of a static pay packet and rising inflation, here’s some tips for increasing your pay or revenue return.

If you are a gig worker or sole trader:

+ Check your prices against both male and female freelancers in your field

+ Charge by the project, not the hour or word-count

+ Increase your prices regularly as your skill level (and inflation) grows

+ Create a rate card and stick to it

+ Focus on how you meet the requirements for a job - not where you fall short

If you’re employed by a company:

+ Head to websites like and find out how much others with your title are earning

+ Research current roles on the market and see how much they are offering

+ Measure your contributions to the company in terms of meeting KPIs, earnings you’re bringing in, level of proficiency, unique skills you bring to the role and more

+ Anchor your salary by naming the amount you’d like to be paid

+ Decide if you’re willing to sacrifice pay for other benefits such as flexible working arrangements, increased superannuation, company car, or others
