We are cost effective
Freelancers are generally cheaper than agencies and can provide a better ROI. Most operate from a home office or coworking space and work virtually so overheads are smaller than that of big agencies. This means you’re only paying for the services provided to you and not for the expensive building, a big team and all the other fees that big agencies factor into the cost of their services.
You know exactly who is working for you
When working with an agency you don’t always know who is working on your account because they are not always transparent with this information. With freelancers you know exactly who is handling your work. This is big for transparency, provides more peace of mind and makes it easier for you to give feedback and be more involved in your project.
We are flexible
If you’re looking to do project based work or have a task to do with a tight turnaround time then freelancers are the way to go. Without the restraints of overheads we are often more flexible. Normally freelancers quote by the hour or per project and it is much easier to give us smaller tasks or projects with short notice.
You are #1
Our clients are the bread and butter of our business. You’re not just another number and this means you get to be the “flagship client”. Marketing agencies measure themselves by the budgets of their clients and can have a variety of projects going on at any given time. This may sometimes leave you feeling ignored. You need to feel important and get treated as such.
We are efficient
You are communicating with the person who is directly doing the work for you so emails get answered quicker and projects get started faster. Communication is more transparent and direct. Large marketing agencies have account managers that facilitate communication and your requests might need to be filtered through multiple people before reaching the person actually doing the work. If you’re an individual or business going through a busy period or starting a new project a freelancer can get the work done efficiently and quickly.
