These days, every company needs a website, blog, eCommerce, SEO strategy, and a bunch of other tech work. Small companies often don’t have the time to set all this up themselves and don’t have the need or funds to hire someone full time.
If you have experience running your own blog, you’re experienced enough to manage a static website for a couple of small businesses. Once again, you’re just providing some basic services on top of Netlify.
One key mistake to avoid: as a contractor, you don’t want to be on call supporting an ambitious web application. If you’re the only contributor, then you need to keep it simple (static site, JAMStack
, off-the-shelf eCommerce) so you’re not responding to outages and issues on a regular basis. If you’re not the only contributor, make it clear that you’re just a contributor, and someone else is responsible for outages.
