Join Petrula Vrontikis for an in-depth discussion in this video Contracts with agencies, part of Running a Design Business: Freelancing.
Freelance contracts differ when they are with an agency versus when they are…directly with a client.…The most common freelance contracts with an agency are verbal agreements.…An hourly or daily rate is agreed upon, a timeframe is established, the total…numbers of hours are estimated or a flat fee is proposed, and specific…deliverables are discussed.…It's also important to commit to your availability during this time for input and review.…If you promise to be available to work, keep your promise.…
If an agency books you for full days or full weeks, they expect you to be…available and have your undivided attention.…Make sure to tell them right away if this is not the case.…It's also a great time to talk about the preferred method of correspondence and…how much interaction will be necessary for the completion of the project.…If you're working hourly, then ask them how much time they think the…whole project might take.…Keep them informed if you're using more time than discussed.…If it's your first time working with this particular agency, it's a good thing…
