Organizing your own time and projects: to make sure you don’t give freelancers emergency tasks that take a long time to create, make an outline of tasks you would require of them once a month, and create a calendar.
Hiring only vetted candidates: when working with a remote freelancing team, trust is essential. Before bringing someone on board, you'll want to be crystal clear on the type of person you need and what they'll be doing, as well as be confident in their skills.
Setting expectations and rules beforehand: if you tell your freelancer what your expectations are and what are the things you wouldn’t tolerate in your collaboration, it will be easier to know if you can work together.
Writing clear briefs: they reduce the amount of time needed for research tasks and client-design communication back and forth.
Learning how to objectively judge the quality: if you’re only able to give your designers subjective criticism, then you might not work well. You should be able to judge objectively whether a design piece is good or not.
Doing frequent checkups: one way to limit the time spent on communication with your designer would be to create an allotted time slot to chat with them.
