When working through the day, I may work on many different projects. Web development is one of the freelancing jobs that I’m sure many people bounce around project to project, or maybe that is just me.
I charge many of my clients per hour, in quarter-hour segments. What are the standards for tracking your time for clients when you have multiple projects going in one day?
Let’s say you are working the core of your day for Client 1 and you get an email from Client 2 that requires no work but just a simple response. Do you charge Client 2 for that quarter hour of reading your email or just kind of let it go? Then how do you manage if they start sending you a bunch of quick emails?
