5 advantages of being a freelancer
1. Flexible Hours – The first advantage of becoming a freelancer is that you can work whenever you want. You get to choose your own hours. If you want to sleep in until noon, you can do that. If you want to take the weekend off so you can explore the city, by all means, go for it. As a freelancer, you can actually work during your most productive hours, and those hours don’t have to fall in during regular business hours.
2. Control over Jobs and Clients – When you work for someone else, you don’t get a choice of who you work with. You can become stuck with unprofessional or rude clients. But, when you’re a freelancer, you can choose with whom you work. If you don’t mesh well with a client’s personality or business or payment philosophies, you can pass on the opportunity and wish them the best. It’s as easy as that.
3. Work Wherever You Want – Whether you prefer consistency or shaking things up when it comes to your work environment, you can choose to work wherever you want, whether you choose to work in a local coffee shop or while you’re on vacation in Europe. You are no longer stuck in an office or even in your home. Find a place in which you work best. You could work in a park, at the library, or in your living room while you’re wearing your pajamas.
4. You’re the Boss – You no longer have to answer to anyone but your clients and yourself. No one is hanging over you or micromanaging you. You are free to do as you please, when you please. Making all the tough decisions just became your responsibility; you have all the control.
5. You Keep All the Profits – No longer do you have to work for a flat rate, no matter how large the projects are that you complete. Now, you get to allocate or keep all the profits from your large and small projects and clients. This gives you the freedom to then use that money to improve yourself and expand your business.
Some pieces of advice:
Employers don’t always hire the lowest bidder. They’re searching for a freelancer who can provide good service for a reasonable price and a reasonable amount of time.
1. Don’t provide an insanely low price simply to get hired. But don’t charge an exorbitant rate either.
Consider your own financial investment on the project (ie, your overhead costs like the project commission rates that the site takes from your earnings, your internet bill, etc.), the degree of difficulty of the project, and the standard market price so you can provide a rate that’s fair for both you and the employer.
2. Provide a reasonable amount of time period.
If it’s a simple project and you’re sure you can do it one day, add one or two more days in your bid and specify that the additional days are for possible revisions on your output.
Also specify whether you mean to work on weekends or plan to work strictly on business days.
3. Give a compelling copy.
In your bid, you’re given a chance to introduce yourself to your potential employer. Make your bid stand out by reiterating your potential client’s specific needs and ensuring that you know and completely understand what you’ll be assigned to do and that you can definitely do it.
Never provide a generic copy. Tailor-fit every copy to every specific potential employer.
4. Set ground rules before starting the project.
If the employer contacts you and considers you for the project, make sure that you’re both clear on the scope and limitation of the project, the payment terms, and the timeline. This prevents potential disputes in the future.
