Hey welcome to the forums.Great progress so far, @Fox! I love all the insight on how you approach clients and the overall workflow required in order to deliver those value-packed websites!
Over the years I've been thinking of starting freelancing myself and I think it's finally time to pull the trigger. However, I've got a few questions regarding the legal aspect of this and I hope that someone could point me to the right direction.
1. How do you handle the domain name & hosting with your clients? Do you use some sort of affiliate program for this?
2. What about the contracts? Do you take care of those or is the client responsible for this as the one "hiring" you? Any examples?
1) I get them to set it up and send me the login details/grant me access (possible with some hosting providers). I personally don't try to make money from hosting but others do and it can work well.
2) I have never used a formal contract for any project. I send a project overview email and just use that. I do heavily screen my clients though and work hard to keep a project on track and communication solid.
My mindset has always been that a bad client wouldn't care about a contract anyway. So I work on a 50/50 risk system (with the payments) and just keep everything moving forward. Works 99% of the time.
