Anchor clients

January 17, 2023

Working with important, anchor clients that “provide steady work and make up a good chunk of your freelance income” has a number of pros and cons, as stated in Rudri Patel’s article:

  • Pros — Steady work and reliable revenue; Freedom to focus on side projects; Plan for the future with clarity; Attract the attention of other clients
  • Cons — They can drop you unexpectedly; It’s easy to become complacent; You can get stuck in a low pay grade

Our take: Best practice for freelancers who work with anchor clients is to stay ambitious and make sure that their side of the deal is well-represented in an ongoing collaboration.
