“I could never work for someone I’ve never met.”
My friend was discussing my freelancing career with me and she couldn’t imagine working for clients she’d never met in person. But freelance web designers and other freelancers do it all the time.
Many freelancers connect with their clients primarily through the Internet. Their clients might be located across town, or across the world. It’s simply not practical or cost-effective to personally visit every web design client.
Working with remote clients has some unique challenges. But it’s quite possible (and probably even necessary in today’s competitive market) to successfully include remote clients into your business strategy.
In this post, I’ll provide some key strategies for dealing with web design clients that you never meet face-to-face. You’re also invited to share any tips you have for dealing with remote clients.

If you’ve ever tried Google’s cloud-based document suite then you likely know it’s pretty great.

Currently the newest add-ons will focus on docs and sheets. But there are plenty more in the works you can expect sometime in the future. This article is dedicated to getting you familiar with Google Drive’s add-ons and how you can install them for your own account.
How much importance do you give to your side projects? Do you focus solely on working on your current projects or your job and forget about everything else? These are questions you should be thinking about, specially if you are interested in developing your abilities and getting that cool position you always wanted. In days where the good old college degree + resume are gone, specially in the design/tech industry, you have to keep in mind that side projects are the new resume and are the way you can show your potential to the world.
