Many people are completely fed up with having to wait weeks or even months for their websites to be designed and built, so they are looking towards freelancers to save them an unknown amount of money.

Risks of Hiring a Freelancer

Many people think that their website will take less time to be designed, built, and launched if they use a free template. The truth, though, is many times, this is NOT true.

A client is usually looking for a website with clean layouts optimized for speed and SEO.

What they get is code that is not optimized for speed and coded in a sloppy fashion that does not offer the best user experience.

Many clients are very unhappy with their freelancers because their website takes forever to deliver. Still, they are looking at the freelancer’s portfolio to determine if they like their work.

While we’re talking about portfolios, view ours.

This means that clients rely on the freelancer to tell them if their freelancer can do the work for them, and they are looking towards the freelancer to do that.

There are many reasons a freelancer cannot meet the expectations of a potential client. The freelancer could have a bad day; the client is asking for more work than they are capable of, the freelancer is running short on time, etc.

In the past, this all may have been considered a problem, but because nothing was standing in the way of the freelancer meeting the client’s needs, it was not considered a factor.

But now that many different factors can affect the freelancer’s ability to meet the needs of the client, the freelancer is now being put up against others who are offering their services at lower rates because of the factors I listed above.

Now that this is being considered, the client is looking towards other freelancers or small agencies who offer what they expect.

Now that there are so many freelancers out there, there are many different rates that a potential client can be getting.

The rates vary because many freelancers use different approaches to meet the client’s needs, but by knowing what to expect, a potential client can get a good idea of what to expect for their own project.

Maybe you’re considering a pay-per-month website? Read about their benefits in our recent blog post.
