Dr. Freelance takes the perspective that success in freelancing means understanding business from a client’s or editor’s point of view as well as being skilled at your craft: No matter how terrific a writer, editor, or designer you are, you ignore the importance of relationships at your peril. Moreover, your portfolio doesn’t sell anything on its own—you have to market your services and yourself, and you need to make yourself an essential part of the creative ecosystem in order to thrive. At the same time, Dr. Freelance also strives to assist clients in getting the most out of their freelance creatives. Experienced creative directors or editors can always find new ways to maximize productivity; novices at working with freelancers may not even know where to start. Dr. Freelance seeks to bridge that gap.
