Freelancers at a Distance

You may be understandably leery of hiring freelancers who work hundreds or even thousands of miles from your site. How can you know they're working on your project? How do you know they'll do it right? Ideas for handling this relationship well include:

  • Start with one or two smaller projects to be sure the freelancer is reliable.
  • Ask questions to be sure the freelancer has all the equipment and software needed to complete the job.
  • Ask for references and call them.
  • Check in frequently to see how things are going.
