is a tool for freelancers, independent contractors and agencies.
It helps to organize all work for your clients into small bits (microjobs) that are agreed, priced, scheduled, and delivered in a way to maximize efficiency and happiness. This approach is refreshingly different to selling hours by a time & material scheme or doing big fixed price projects.
Microcontracts is a better way to work powered by freedom!
Figure out the business needs behind every bit of work, the client’s expectations and possible budget he thinks is worth dedicating to the project.
Outline the solution and microcontract conditions: maximum price and deadline.
Help your client to choose jobs with the highest business value per dollar. When a microcontract is accepted you can start working on it.
Both the client and vendor can outline microjobs, discuss them, and propose conditions, which the other party can accept or reject. Every step is simple and formalized to quickly guide you through the process.
Every microcontract has clear conditions, in particular who decides when the microjob is done: the vendor or client. Each single microcontract lays out which party bears the risk, even though it’s very small.
Both client and vendor are in clear understanding about commitments - agreed microcontracts. The vendor also is aware of his outstanding proposals for new microjobs, which could become microcontracts if agreed or expire otherwise. This way it’s always clear when the next bit of work can be realistically put into the schedule.
