Best practices for selecting freelancers for a project
1. Make sure that your expectations and their portfolio matches.
It is no use asking a horror-editor to edit a children’s books. This professional might be amazingly skilled; but simply not the right fit for you.
2. Check for communication discrepancies.
Yes, somebody can be an amazing professional and not a good communicator. It is important, though, that you can be sure that you can reach them whenever it is important. If your preferred freelancer lives in a cave and only goes near internet once a month, that’s okay – as long as you are aware of it, fine with that and happy to wait.
3. Ask for samples.
Everyone can say anything. Don’t commit to any contract until you can’t see a sample of their work.
4. And last but not least: trust them.
If you have carefully selected a freelancer or other professional, let them do their work. Listen to their opinion. There is nobody during the creative process who wouldn’t want you and your book to be successful.
