More and more people these days are making the decision to quit their day jobs to go freelance.
In fact, according to Upwork and the Freelancers Union’s Freelancing in America: 2016 report, more than one third of Americans (55 million people) are currently freelancing, and that number is expected to bourgeon in the coming years.
So why do these people choose to be freelancers instead of building their career within a company? Answer: being a freelancer means freedom, flexibility, and fnancial independence.
However, as with most things in life, there are risks and rewards to freelancing.
Although it may sound easy, there are always challenges and dificulties, and it can be especially hard when you are in the initial stages of your freelance career.
But with good sets of skills, knowledge, passion, and the right attitude, it is not impossible to be successful in this feld.
A good list of tips and advice will help you refne your skills and work processes.
Like these skills for instance!
With that being said I have 7 tips for freelancers (Myself)
1. Use a contract for every project
2. Always get a down payment
3. Learn to say no
If you are just starting your freelance career, saying no may be an issue.
You want to impress all your clients, so you will offer all the help that you can give to avoid disappointing.
This will result in too much work and stress that will certainly lower the quality of your work.
Whatever your decision is, one thing is for sure: You will disappoint someone.
Whether it is the client because you can’t fnish the job on deadline, your family since you have to work extra harder and spend more time on it, or yourself because you might get dissatisfed with your work.
That’s why you should learn to say no if you think your workload is already enough to balance everything.
4.Treat your clients well
Your freelance business should reflect who you are, because clients want to know who they are working with.
So make sure you have the interpersonal skills to deal efectively with every client.
Be sure to be personable enough.
How are you going to do that?
This will help your clients build up trust and confdence in you and your work.
5. Create a personal website or blog
To reach more clients, having a website and/or blog will really help.
Try to put your work portfolio on there.
You do not have to put every example of work you have done in the past.
Just remember to post the types of jobs that you hope to continue working on, and most especially all projects that you specialized in.
6. Know your numbers
Numbers can serve as a guide for your business.
Knowing your numbers means knowing how much your skillset, eforts, and work are worth.
Additionally, you should know where your income came from (what clients, type of projects, passive income), and focus more on the areas that are producing the greatest results.
Knowing these numbers will shed light on the aspects that you need to work on most, and help you understand where there’s room for improvements.
7. Save for the rainy season
Freelance work is seasonal. Having enough projects to fnance your daily needs doesn’t necessarily mean that you will get a steady income all throughout the year. Like any other business, there will be times when the incoming work will be insuficient to meet your needs. So to close the gap during those seasons, it’s important to build up a rainy day fund by saving a portion of your income during the thriving period. These are all things I learned and recommended due to things I went through in the workforce as an freelancer and working for tracko talent.
