Hiring graphic designer on a retainer for the business

Remove ads while supporting the Unscripted philosophy...become an INSIDER.



I currently do logo design and branding for companies as a freelancer. One of the biggest issues with this is steady income stream, so I decided to invest my time researching retainers.

With $2000 per month I would be able to start my own company (small business). I'm currently negotiating with one possible client who would pay me around $1000 per month for 25 hours of work. I would do all kind of graphic design for him.

I had some clients in the past who are pretty active on social media, but their images could be much more professional if they pay to someone who knows what he/she is doing.

My first step will be to reach to my past clients and offer my monthly service.

Can I hear from you (business owners)...Have you ever hired a graphic designer on a retainer?

Do you have a constant need for graphics?

How realistic that small/new/online business owner will hire someone on a retainer?

Please share your thoughts on this, I would like to see it from your point of view.

With steady stream of income I would have more time to work on my side fastlane ideas.

Thank you.
