Today I want to talk about a very important issue that goes hand in hand with being a freelance web designer – and that is the issue of setting and staying within time frames.
There are a lot of questions and scenarios that should be addressed and that you must be prepared to deal with as a freelance web design in Auckland – what are time frames and why do you need one? How do you decide on the time frame for a project?
What if the completion of the project runs late because of the client's lack of compliance? How do you budget for this? How do you write this into the contract? Estimating and dealing with time frames is definitely not one of my favorite parts of web design, but it is still important to know how to. I think that being prepared to set up and stick to time frames will save you headaches and stress down the road. Ready to jump in? Let's get started!
What is a time frame and why do you need one? Every time you start a new project, it is best for both you and the client to specify and agree on a time frame. This gives the client a good idea of when they can expect to see the completed project, and it gives you a good idea of how much work you will most likely put into the project each day or each week.
It allows you to decide whether you will need to devote all of your working hours to this one project in order to get it done on time, or if you will have enough time to take on another project or two and still have them all completed within their individual time frames.
