One of the most common questions were asked is about the kind of rates that freelance journalists pitching to Thailand-based publications can expect to earn.
The answer really depends on the content you’re able to provide. If you’re able to write with authority and knowledge on a specific topic and have no competition, and can convince a publication to commission you, then you stand a chance of being able to earn around 5 baht per word. For a 1,000-word article that equates to around US$160.
That’s not much on a global scale but you have to consider that publishers are recruiting degree-holding Thai journalists with reasonable English language skills for as little as US$400 per month.
Many freelance assignments paying more than 7 baht per word
