The hourly rate on your profile displays your desired hourly wage to potential employers. Displaying a competitive rate based on your field and experience will increase your chances of success. Displaying a lower or higher rate than the average for your level of experience could possibly hurt your chances of being considered for a job and consequently prevent you from reaching your maximum potential as a freelancer. 



The amount of feedback and worked hours on your profile should also be considered when calculating your desired hourly rate. If you have low to zero feedback score and low working hours on your profile, it is advisable to consider an hourly rate that makes you more attractive to potential employers.
