Get Paid What You Are Worth Using Online Time Tracking SoftwareWhen a client hires your creative agency for a design project, be it a Web site, logo design, or complete rebranding, they are basing much of their decision on the merits of your talent and expertise. They aren’t looking for the best market value or the lowest bidder, they are looking for a creative agency that will provide them with a unique experience and outcome.

This is why you should be charging your clients an hourly rate and tracking that time using online software. Anybody can design and build a web site. Those anybodies are not you, and your client knows that. Tracking time helps quantify the personality and perspective your creative agency will breathe into their project.

When you use an online time tracking application, like Intervals, it takes less than a minute to pull up a report showing exactly where you time is going. Was too much time spent going back and forth on the design? Did the client request a big change? Meetings go longer than they should have?

Online time tracking software can answer these questions and assist your creative agency in quickly presenting accurate reports to your client. Reduce client questions and concerns over billing with a few clicks, and get paid what you are worth.
