Why Bartering Is NOT The Answer for Web Designers

Bartering originated to trade items of value before currency even existed. In the present day, there is no reason to forfeit money and give up time and energy in exchange for something you don’t even need. That’s why episode 11 of MAKING WEBSITE MAGIC is about why bartering isn’t the answer for web designers!

Are you consistently booking dream clients, or are you saying “yes” to anyone because so few opportunities are coming your way? Believe it or not, you CAN have a thriving web design & dev business where you consistently work with aligned clients who actually pay you well. 

 In this episode of Making Website Magic, Sam & Karyn are sharing the importance of understanding the value your work holds and actionable steps you can take right now to confidently charge for your services. 

Here are just a few of the things we discuss during this episode:

  • Where bartering originated and how it found its way back into the modern-day online space.     
  • Why bartering is so problematic and why women are more inclined to offer this option.
  • Dropping the uncomfortability around accepting money and acknowledging that it is more than okay to get paid for the services you provide. 
  • The inequality and uncertainty in exchanging services. 

The answer to bartering is simple; get paid for the work you do and support others by allowing them to do the same. Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive empowerment to step boldly into your web design business and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
