Freelancing is a lifestyle.
In this session we'll present an overview of the pros and cons of working with freelancers. We'll walk you through our systematic approach to finding, retaining, and coordinating freelance teams. We'll answer some of the basic questions about working with freelancers such as:
* When does it make sense to work with independent contractors?
* How do you maintain an enduring relationship with a freelancer?
* What are the traits of a successful freelancer?
And we'll cover some basic topics including:
* Lifestyle: Why people choose to be freelancers
* Freelancers are slutty, but so are you: How to approach independence.
* Match made in heaven: Pros and cons of working with Freelancers
* Long distance relationships: How to approach communication
* Take a trip to Hawaii: Keeping freelancers on your team
We run a team of highly skilled and inspired independent contractors doing UI, web design, development, and multimedia. We've been working freelance on large corporate projects for over 10 years. We founded Freelance Camp in 2008, leading to a global movement. We've won numerous Webby awards, work with the likes of SAP, MTV, AOL and dozens of other 3 letter acronyms.
