Sourcing freelancers for gigs and roles within your company can be daunting, regardless of if it's your first time or your thousandth. To ensure you enter your creator search prepared, CLLCTVE put together a guide answering our clients' top five questions about hiring freelancers.
Freelancers are the perfect solution to fill part-time, skill-based roles or complete short-term gigs and projects. They're cost-effective, impressively skilled in their areas of expertise, able to return high-quality deliverables with quick turnaround time, and come with no long-term commitment or lengthy onboarding process.
Freelancers can be hired for short- and long-term gigs, part-time roles and temporary positions. Their skills range across creative mediums such as graphic design, web design, copywriting, brand material creation, photographers, videographers, animation, illustration and more.
Pay for freelancers depends on the length of the project or role, as well as required skills and experience. When speaking with freelancers, you'll want to ask them their typical rates and preferred payment method, and send over a contract when necessary.
To ensure your freelancers are set up for success, provide clear deadlines and expectations, provide actionable feedback on deliverables and communicate regularly throughout the project timeline. Finally, be sure to pay freelancers in a timely fashion to maintain positive long-term relationships.
