Freelance vs Agency

One of my goals for Matt Report is to help WordPress entrepreneurs choose the ideal path to success. I do however, leave the definition of success up to them.

If you’re going to be a freelancer, there’s a lot to consider before you even being working a project. Here’s just a few:

  • Finding clients
  • Negotiations
  • Contracts
  • Expectations
  • Project management
  • Billing and receivables
  • Cash flow
  • Customer support
  • Doing it all over again…

“But I don’t want to deal with that Matt!” you might be saying.

Well then listen to what Ryan has to say about agency life. There’s a lot of positives to working with a team and not just for getting the work done — but handling all of the overhead of client services.

Positive reinforcement

I’ve received some great feedback lately and I’m really happy people are enjoying the show. If there’s another angle you want me to include, questions I should ask more frequenetly or you simply want me to stop the “ahh’s & umm’s” let me know in the comments!

As always, share this with others if you can — I appreciate it!
