Best Practices When Using Freelance Workers
Classify them accurately
Provide clear expectations
Request sample work
Create a Contract
Ensure alignment on project scope and timelines
Your contract with your freelance workers likely outlines the project scope and timelines. Either way, it’s important for both parties to understand what kind of work the project requires—and how much. Whether your new hire is a full-time freelancer or works gigs part-time to make extra money, they need to know how to manage their time when providing work for you. Understanding the scope of their work and expected deadlines can help them figure out whether your projects can fit into their schedule. For example, when hiring a freelance writer, it could be helpful for them to understand that you might require additional drafts after they submit their work. This way, they can schedule a time to provide them for you.
