Charging for logo design

This is something I want to check before I start designing logos and charging peanuts for the work.

In the past I have designed logos for a client, charged say £100 for it and given them the artwork to use as and when they like. I have had a chat with a friend who said I should be getting paid every time the clients use my logo. This is where I've been more creative than businesslike, it's down to my ignorance really. Shouldn't the tutors have explained this in art college? :o

Anyway, I now believe I should have sold them the copyright for the logos for a lot more money. Is this correct?
