When working as an independent contractor or freelancer, you don’t always work with the same person for an extended period of time. This leads to a lot of new faces, new relationships, and new concerns.
Chief among these concerns, from the buyer’s perspective, is trust. How can I, as someone hiring you to complete my project, trust that you know what you’re doing and will do it well?
For us, this question is the first and largest hurdle to cross. It is the one that you must pass in order to even get a foot in the door. Luckily there are many ways that you can earn a client’s, or potential client’s, trust even before meeting with them.
