Over the last few weeks, I’ve had a few people ask me about retainers. Usually along the lines of ‘what the hell are they and should I be offering them?’
*Insert dad joke about braces*
Fran Swaine, a freelance friend of mine that some of you might know from the Team Red Hangouts, is a bit of a pro when it comes to retainers and she kindly agreed to do a hangout with me to go over the basics. Tune in to see us chat about the pros, cons and opportunities for freelancers to use retainers – and why it could be one of the best financial moves you could make.
Regular income, a better relationship with my clients and a more long-term agreement? What’s not to love? I haven’t actually done a lot when it comes to retainers – but after chatting to Fran it’s certainly something I’ll try to do more.
