  2. 2. be flexible flexibility is the ‘heart’ of freelancing. it is something which differentiate us with big design/web agencies. it is our plus point. being a freelancer means being able to be (reasonably) flexible.
  3. 3. know how you can sell know WHAT you can sell and know HOW you can sell it
  4. 4. instead of selling a web design & development in one package, we can split it into creative idea and graphic design, coding, development, database design, copywriting, photography, hosting, etc.
  5. 5. be responsive, fast if possible sometimes (or most of the times), what client needs is simply our response. a short ‘ok, i’ll check it’ quick reply is better than a ten paragraphs detailed explanations email sent 2 days later.
