That's so indie -- ahead of the curve
Freelance is the future.
Because knowledgeable Independents must take responsibility for many additional costs, don't expect standard "hourly rates" to apply to the cost of their services. Some ICs cost more in the short-term because they have special training or unique experience that provides immediate benefit or builds long-term value for clients. Please be aware of intellectual property copyright considerations when hiring ICs:
- ICs generally retain copyright of custom technical works (specifically "design" aspects such as custom css and code),
- ICs may retain copyright of certain kinds of content
