You don't have to wait for this moment to take the leap, but whenever you have all the work you can handle, that's a good opportunity to raise your rates, and perhaps a definite sign that you should.

Douglas,

 

Seeing other freelancers' bids didn't necessarily affect my bid on any project, but it is silly to be in any business and not care about what your competition is offering, including their pricing.

I have very little competition on Upwork. As I mentioned, my rates are benchmarked to industry standards: that is, the rates charged by other professional editors, regardless of where and how they find work.
