I have actually talked to many people that specifically want a freelancer and not a big agency. I've worked in a digital marketing agency before and I was stretched really thin and couldn't get good work done. Also, agencies tend to be pricier since they are more structured and established usually.I never understood why people want to be a “freelancer” and not an ageny. If i were a business owner, i would much rather hire an “agency” than a “freelancer”. It just sounds a lot more professional and concentrated.
Thank you for the posts, this is very inspirational. I will work on my own PowerPoint template
With a freelancer, you get a personal approach and not a random account manager that you have to deal with. Freelancers also usually come with a cheaper price.
That being said, I think the benefits of being an agency outweigh the benefits of being a freelancer. Although, it's not like you should be choosing as they are different. I define myself as an agency because I do work with a lot of different people (content writers, gfx designers, etc.) and I plan to expand in the future. I do not want to be a 1 man shop and the power of the internet makes it so I can hire other people when the time comes easily.
