Beware of clients who want to give you their phone number so that you can continue the conversation offline. (When you are not talking to clients, you are not getting paid.) However, if you work from 10pm to 6am, some companies will pay you more per minute.
Another way to make more per minute is to work at least 30 hours a week for an additional few cents per minute.
