Afterword: The Business of the Web
This afterword will look at a few different areas on how to best conduct business as it relates to the Web. We’ve known brilliant designers who weren’t very adept at billing. We’ve known excellent developers who have had trouble getting paid because they didn’t work out the terms of an agreement before starting work. Freelancing is a very popular option among people working on the Web. We don’t know whether it’s the nature of the industry or just the personality type of the people who work online, but based on conversations we’ve had at conferences with others working in the field, there seems to be a really high occurrence of people doing side work for themselves among those employed at larger organizations. It’s not uncommon to find individuals who work in completely different fields such as print design or photography (we’ve even met a couple of licensed electricians!) to occasionally work in web development.
