Red badge - Top Rated Plus. Is it really good for clients?

I did not get the red badge . I have one big client. Also I've earned more than 5k $ in last 12 months from the client. But it wasnt one big project.  Total I've earned from the client about $23k in a few years time. There were many projects.

 

The good news for clients is:

 

★★★ I'M TOP RATED FREELANCER WITH AFFORDABLE PRICES ★★★

 

Perhaps I should rise my hourly rate up ($25)?

Congrats on being Top Rated. Never promote you're affordable. And never use that as your first line on your profile. 

 

Cheap work = below par work. That's my perception.

I think there's a big difference between being cheap and being affordable - $25 isn't really a low-ball rate. I don't see anything wrong with promoting yourself as being good value for the money.

Maybe you are right.  Any idea? Do you have any catchy slogan in the tough time?

I'm in the same boat - the minimum earning does have to be on one contract, unfortunately. But yes, I think you can go to $25/hour. What's the worst that can happen? You could always lower it again, if necessary.
