Diversify your existing project portfolio
Large, medium, and small projects.
Considering a balanced set of projects can be beneficial
Successful designers get to work on all kinds of projects. Sometimes the larger projects can be the most profitable. However, if you are an individual or a small design shop, you can be under-estimating the ability to generate profits from sustained and consistent small, easy projects.Details
Large Projects. As we all know, large projects are most likely the most profitable for most designers. However, if you have too many of them going on all at once, they can be hard to manage. There is only so much time that you have to focus on projects. Larger projects represent a bigger commitment, so why not identify additional, yet different profitable opportunities.
Small Projects. Small projects, if accomplished quickly and effectively, can become a source of sustained cashflow. The hard part is meeting client expectations and selling value. TribeVita Templates provide the following benfits:
- They have great design, architecture, and promote an amazing starting point.
- They allow you to quickly focus on tweaks and content entry.
- They provide a way to quickly turn around a small project.
Volume. Agencies and professional design freelancers often overlook the cash flow opportunities and the benefits of having multiple projects of all sizes.
Long-term relationship building.
You can’t always sell a large project now, but you can in the future
Many designers are looking for the large project sale in the short term. Instead, build a reliable network of satisfied customers with a smaller project. Then, when they have a stronger investment opportunity, they will seek you out and give you that larger project opportunity.Details
Turning away work. Turning away work is a common scenario; designers turn away work that is not full of strategic planning, logo identity, brand recognition, wireframes and various layout concepts. All designers strive to collaborate on projects with funds for this kind of work. However, there are small business owners that need something really simple to get them to the next level. If you could provide them with a solid foundation, within a platform that can let them grow, and not spend too many hours getting them there; would you?
Delayed gratification. Our agencies have quickly developed relationships with many individual business owners and smaller businesses. We never earned tremendous amounts of cash for these projects, but you can still be profitable, and can make a dramatic difference. In the long run, you will grow, when your client grows. And isn’t it easier upselling to a happy customer that believes in you rather than marketing and selling to everyone else.
