Freelancing As A Home Business

 

If an office experience is not to your liking, there's nothing stopping you from trying your hand at earning as a freelancer. Just keep in mind that two important things that keep your finances healthy, as a freelancer, is resourcefulness and time management. You'd need to keep finding ways to get jobs.

You'd need to know your own mind and body's work and rest periods, so you complete every job you take, and get enough rest and amusement. In this article are recommended sites where you can get jobs that you can do at home, and more or less on your own pace. Remember, as a freelancer, you lose the routine job hours (and office politics) that a cubicle nine-to-five jobs offers. So it's up to you to be resourceful.

Below are some resources at your disposal. Go to each of these sites to see what they offer. You can even Google up reviews and feedback about them, just so you'd know what you're getting into, or missing out on.

GetAFreelancer. Think of this place a market where people who needs things done and people who claim can do them meet and negotiate. People post jobs and job details, and people respond by bidding on those jobs. You'd have to create an account so you can take part.

Sometimes, you don't get chosen for projects. After all, there are always people who started their careers in web design or search engine optimization or layout and graphics, or web content writing -- all earlier than you.

Make sure that when you bid, you highlight your relevant skills and experience, and that you're respectful and brief. It also helps to know your place, meaning your bid. Don't bid too high if you're not that much of a veteran.

Craigslist. There's almost no one who surfs these days who doesn't know about Craigslist. The idea of an online classified jobs bulletin board has been replaced by that term. Here you'll find man’s job postings, most of them related to web design and web work. It also has many people looking for freelance writers as content is always needed.

There are jobs not so related to those design fields, so you can still hunt a bit here. You'll meet people who are honest and willing to help.

Sriptlance. This website is similar in concept to GetAFreelancer and just as legitimate. Also, anyone who's been both to GAF and Scriptlance would recommend the latter to any service provider, regardless if you offer web work and design, or SEO and web content writing.

You can even opt in on email services wherein your get notified via email about new jobs. Emails sent like this happen often every three days, and carries notifications on about twenty-five jobs that fit your job category. You even get info in bids and project deadlines.

Forums. Forums are cool places to hunt for online jobs. You can post the kind of service you offer, your past work or portfolio, including your professional fee and contact info, and interested parties will send you word about the jobs they need, either as part of the forum thread or as private message. A forum called NamePros is recommended, as it’s legit. Naturally there are other forums out there. You'd have to try them out and read up on feedback on posting job services there, just so you won't miss out on things.

Don't even think that this list as an end-all. There are bound to be other sites on the web where you can get jobs. You just have to be a tad resourceful, and maybe stubborn. Keep trying. Keep building your portfolio of jobs (if you just started).

And keep meeting deadlines and making clients happy (if you're a semi-veteran). After all, there are no more routine work hours that shackle you. Whatever you do are decisions made based on your capacity to do the work offered and your peak work hours. Enjoy being a freelancer!
