This week I tweeted a question that’s been on my mind lately, as my husband and I have been drafting our wills recently (ghoulish, but necessary!):
Hey web designers, creepy thought: If you die, have you thought about who’ll take over your clients’ sites?
I am LOADS of fun at parties.
And this doesn’t just apply to web designers, but to any freelancer with multiple regular clients, who has ongoing projects with them, yet has no staff who can take over during a crisis… or worse. DA DA DAAAAAHH!!
Anyhoo, because Twitter is the best place for asking questions aloud and getting great answers back (thanks Simon!), I was sent a link to Crisis Cover. For £5/month (CDN$8, or US$7) you can get the most basic service that covers 50 clients. Hey it’s cheaper than life insurance, hiring staff, and having a lawyer. Click the image to see the basics of how it works.
I think of these things so you don’t have to.
