In his blog post, Paying Not To Be First, Jonathan Fields discusses why paying more for a service is better.
He makes a fair point: you’re paying more for a service because you are paying for the individual’s experience.
Reading this reminds me of a few things I should share about web designers and other freelancers. Remember, I base this on working in the field for 10 years; I’ve seen my colleagues do a lot of interesting things.
In his post, Jonathan has the “you get what you pay for” mentality. Bear in mind that this is often true. However, it can be equally false.
