7 Tips for Building a Successful Team of Freelancers

Earlier this month, our CEO Ray Grainger had a guest contribution on GigaOM's WebWorkerDaily. He discusses how the landscape of the workforce is changing as seemingly everything is moving online and becoming geographically dispersed. In addition, he covers 7 tips for building a successful team of freelancers.

Here are Ray's seven tips:

  1. Set rules for the project, timelines and budget.
  2. Create a collaborative online work environment.
  3. Manage documents and conversations in a single place.
  4. Stay on top of hours throughout the project lifecycle.
  5. Accept changes.
  6. Link invoicing to actual project management.
  7. Offer career development and other services.
