So you’ve hired a freelancer to help you achieve your business goals. Now what?
It’s vitally important that you, as the client, do your part in fostering a positive working relationship with your contractor. Embarking on a new project can be overwhelming, especially if it involves technical aspects (such as web design). That’s why you’ve hired an expert!
But in order to make your project a success, you need to develop a solid working relationship, and be aware of some basic “rules” when working with a freelancer.
Freelancers are often mischaracterized as inexperienced, amateurs, or part-timers. These are usually far from the truth. Most of us are experienced in our industry and take our job very seriously. Our livelihood depends on it!
We take pride in the work that we deliver, and we charge a fair price for our services. Don’t expect a reputable freelancer to work on ’spec’ or provide extra consultation free of charge. You wouldn’t ask for a free meal when you go out to a restaurant, would you?
