Before we embark on a project together, it's always a good idea to see if my process is a good fit for you and vice versa. The truth is not every client and every freelancer are well suited, and that's ok. You know what you want, and I know my strengths - let's see if they intersect.
1. First Contact
I strongly believe that a project without proper planning is doomed from the start, so prepare for questions!
It's important for both of us to discuss project specifics, goals, decision making roles and yes, even budgets. At this stage maybe it'll become clear that your project isn't a fit for my skill-set, or that your deadline is incompatible with my workload.
Hopefully, though, we just click.
2. Project Time!
With the detailed brief and goal measurement plan we worked out during the planning phase, everyone knows where we stand.
Regular email and staging site updates are underway, you see regular progress so you can be confident we're on track or point out any potential problems early on, and I probably do quite a lot of the work in my pyjamas at 3am but luckily you never have to witness that part.
Freelancers who claim to always work fully dressed are LIARS.
