Tips for hiring an on-site/local or remote freelancer

When picking a creative freelancer for your project, we recommend some of these tips when either hiring remotely or on-site/locally.

Hiring an on-site creative

E.g. Photographer, Stylist…

  • Tip #1: Coffee meet up. It’s always great to speak over video calls and Wishu chat, however it will never replace the connection you will build with a creative freelancer through a good old fashioned face-to-face meet up.
  • Tip #2: Make sure to check and follow any regulations and laws surrounding Covid-19 (testing, social distancing). Check the latest guidelines at Gov.uk.
  • Tip #3: Use the right communication method. Are you going to be using email, Wishu chat, WhatsApp, or Asana to communicate with the freelancer? Use what works for best for both parties.
  • Tip #4: Do you need to hire any equipment or transport? Get £60 credit from Zipcar. Try ShootBlue for equipment hiring.

Hiring a remote creative

E.g. Editor, Graphic Designer…

  • Tip #1: Have an introductory video call meeting before meeting in person. Make sure to go through project milestones and steps, be clear and start building a connection.
  • Tip #3: Use the right communication method. Are you going to be using email, Wishu chat, WhatsApp, or Asana to communicate with the freelancer? Use what works for best for both parties.
