What is freelancing? What are freelancing jobs? How to become a freelancer?

 5 months ago   •     1   •     373

What one needs to understand first and foremost is that freelancing is nothing but a way of doing things. It is not something you do; rather it is the way you do something you know.So, the pre-requisite is to know something that is of value. In other words, you need to have some skill that people will want to buy from you or some skill that you can serve people with.

Freelancing is basically a different way to work. Rather than being employed by a company in one specific job, freelancers are self-employed and find work via a variety of sources. Clients hire a freelancer to complete a task, project, or service for them. Freelancers often work on a range of projects at any one time for various clients. Freelancers are responsible for paying their own tax, pension, etc, and managing their own time, priorities, and workload. Freelancers can work from anywhere, but many work from home, from “freelancing hubs”, or coffee shops.

Freelancers can do many things, such as virtual admin, writing, editing, ICT, consultancy, design, marketing… and so on. Often, these tasks are completed online or via a computer, but some are done in-person. I’m a freelance book editor and proofreader, but I also do some writing.

To become a freelancer, you can sign up to some freelancing websites and start applying for jobs on there. The benefit of starting with freelancing sites is there’s plenty of customers already on there. I work via PeoplePerHour.com, which is the UK’s biggest freelancing site. You can also set up a personal website, advertise your services via social media, search for freelancing jobs on LinkedIn, or gain work via word-of-mouth by telling people what you do. Many freelancers use a mix of these methods to gain work.
