Many small businesses would never consider hiring a full-time designer for their company. However, some growing businesses find the need to turn to designers more frequently and begin to question whether they should hire someone full time or if bringing in a freelance designer is a better choice. These reasons strongly support turning to a freelance designer as a solution.
When you hire a permanent employee for design work you are locked into that individual’s skill set. So while they may be an outstanding graphic designer, their web design skills may not be as strong. Using freelance designers allows you to match an individual’s strong points to your different projects.
A fresh perspective
Salaried employees make decisions based on what is best for their careers and are sometimes afraid to be honest for fear of losing a job or promotion. Freelance workers can bring not only honesty without fear of backlash, but they also bring with them new ideas and experiences that can help drive a project forward.
Focus on the project
Freelance designers know that you are their client and if they want repeat business or recommendations, they need to remain focused 100% on the project they are working on. Unfortunately for salaried employees, they are often given a multitude of different projects to work on simultaneously so they cannot dedicate their time entirely to one over another.
Business success depends on capital resources. Salaries are usually one of the greatest expenses that a business has to contend with. However, by using freelance talent you can pay the market price for quality workers while still saving money that can be used to grow your business.
