We're currently trying to find our first gigs on upwork, I'm super strong in Polymer (webcomponents) and frontend in general. It's a very rare skill because not that many people are doing webcomponents yet and I've been doing it for 4+ years.
I'm wondering if you can raise your prices higher than usual if you do something that's very much in demand, does it work, or does it just scare of potential customers? How do you approach it in the beginning? Should you go with normal rates, or does a specific skillset that's hard to find justify to raise the prices?
WDYT? e. g. meteor developers in the Philippines are paid quite well because it's super hard to find them.
