Freelancing is currently the most popular among online income. A freelancing career can be started only if you are experienced in a subject online.
Besides, there are many benefits. Today we will discuss the answers to all the questions related to freelancing and the freelancing guidelines.
What is freelancing?
Let’s take a look at an example to understand freelancing. Suppose a man in America opens an e-commerce website. Now if he goes to open the website with the web developers there, then of course it will take more money. Now the question is, why do his need more money?
Since America is a rich country, the standard of living there is improved. That is, the salary of the employees is very high. Now if that person hires the employees of our country or other countries where the standard of living is less improved then it will take less money.
Because our quality of life is not that good. Now the person who is taking services from other countries is outsourcing and the other country from which he is serving is freelancing. I hope the freelancing issue has been cleared up.
Who are the clients?
Those who give work to freelancers are called clients. From the previous example, the client who is hiring an employee to open an e-commerce website.
Who are freelancers?
The one who will do the work of a client is a freelancer. In the example that we saw a little while ago, the service that is being offered is freelancer.
What is Marketplace?
The medium that connects between clients and freelancers is called a marketplace. That is, the marketplace is a medium where a freelancer can get a job and a client can give the job.
How do marketplaces connect freelancers and clients?
It’s a chain process. Let’s take a step by step look at how marketplaces connect a customer and a freelancer.
- First a customer posts his work in the marketplace.
- After that, different types of freelancers who can do that work bid i.e. apply for the work.
- A buyer hires a freelancer by looking at the profiles of those who have applied for work.
- After that, the value of that freelancer’s work is deposited in the marketplace.
- After the work is finished, the marketplace leaves some commission and pays the rest of the money to that freelancer.
That’s how marketplaces usually work.
How to start freelancing?
To start freelancing, the first thing you need is patience and willingness to work. Many people say that freelancing is possible with mobile. Yes, it is also possible with mobile, but there are some heavy tasks which cannot be done with mobile.
For example, someone has to create an app. Now it is never possible to create a good quality app with mobile. Again, in the case of graphics design, it cannot be designed beautifully with mobile. There are no features available on mobile, so it is not possible to freelance well with mobile.
That is, you need a good quality PC or laptop. But I would recommend buying a PC if you work at home. On the laptop, you will not get much performance and the price of the laptop is also very high. Again, with the laptop, you will not be able to do heavy work.
The only advantage of a laptop is that you can take it to different places. On the other hand, if you buy a PC, the price will be much lower and heavy work can be done very easily. But pc you can’t take everything to wake up.
From the other side, you don’t have to go anywhere to do freelancing. That is, it is best to buy a PC. Now you need the internet. Now no one will order you offline, so the internet connection is definitely required. However, if you use cellular internet, the cost will be much higher, so it is better to use WiFi (Wireless Fidelity).
The most important thing is that you need to learn to work. Now there is a lot of work in freelancing jobs. You have to choose which one you can easily start working on. You can choose which job you can easily do and do a course. Currently, there are a lot of free and paid courses online.
Paid courses should be purchased. The most important thing now is to learn English. If you look at most of the freelancing jobs, you will see that those who have given the job are from other countries, especially Europeans.
English is the main language of european countries. Moreover, English is now an international language i.e. in addition to the countries of Europe, you will need to learn English to speak to people from other countries.
There are currently a lot of online courses on learning English. I’ll recommend two courses at Robi Ten Minute School.
1. English Grammar Crush Course.
2. Munjirin Sahid’s English spoken course.
You can complete the first course of these two beforehand.
Because in the first course, the advance course has been done from the basic of English to the advance course. And you can complete the second course to learn to speak English.
But you don’t have to do the course, you need to practice. If you are thinking about starting freelancing, complete these tasks first.
Why be a freelancer?
At present, freelancers are more expensive than employed people and their income is also much higher. Moreover, a freelancer gets many more opportunities than a working person.
What are the benefits of a freelancer now? First of all, a working man cannot work according to his own wishes while working, but a freelancer can do the way he wants to.
Again in the case of a job, you will get a salary at the end of the month, but when a freelancer finishes the job, he gets the money within a few days or a few hours.
Again, the family cannot be given time in the field of employment, due to which family problems arise, but in the case of freelancing, He can give a lot of time to the family. There are also many other benefits.
Again, a question that remains in everyone’s mind is that if freelancing has so much advantage, then why doesn’t everyone do freelancing? See, although freelancing provides many opportunities, but there are a lot of work for this.
If you can’t do a freelancing job well, you won’t be able to survive a day. That is, freelancing is not for everyone. For this, it is necessary to be experienced in a specific freelancing subject. So not everyone can be freelancer.
What will you do?
Today there is a lot of work in the world of freelancing. If you search for freelancing jobs on Google, then you will see that a long list will come up. From there, you have to choose a job and learn and start working after learning. However, not all work is popular.
There are some things that you will get very little. So you have to choose a popular job. There are also difficulties in more popular work. To do the work that is more popular, you need to be more experienced because many freelancers like you are running after that work.
I have made a list of some popular works let’s take a look at.
1. Web Development
It is one of the most popular freelancing jobs. Today, many small and big companies need a website. Freelancers are mostly experienced as they look for a lot of experienced freelancers.
Currently, the cost of a skilled web developer is very high. Now to become a web developer, you need to have a lot of understanding about coding.
At present, there are different types of web development courses from where you can learn web development.
2. Graphics Design
Graphics design is one of the other popular freelancing jobs. Graphics design includes logo design, business card, banner design, advertising banners, book covers, etc. Today, many companies need these things.
So they look for experienced freelancers. Now if you want to be a graphics designer, you have to be creative.
Because there is not much difference between a graphic designer and an artist. Robi Ten Minute School has two courses on graphics design, you can complete those courses.
3. Digital Marketing
Today, in the world of freelancing of digital marketers, there is a lot of price. Digital marketing includes social marketing, SEO (search engine optimization), community-based marketing, etc.
Of these, SEO is the most popular. Social marketing is also very popular. You can easily learn digital marketing. If you have business knowledge, then you can easily become a digital marketer. There are a lot of digital marketing courses today. Complete one of them and work.
4. Video Editing
Nowadays, the value of video editor is very high. There is a lot of video editing work especially in the field of freelancing. Today, many people need video editors for websites, channels, pages, etc.
In the case of video editing, most of it will depend on your creativity, but by completing some courses, you can also strengthen your skills.
These were the five most popular freelancing jobs. There are many more jobs, but these are more popular. You can learn to work on any one of these and start working.
How do you earn by freelancing?
Now that you have learnt the job, you need a medium where you will find a customer. Such mediums are called marketplaces. I’ve talked about marketplaces a while ago.
There are a lot of marketplaces today. Let’s know about the three popular marketplaces.
Currently, the most popular freelancing marketplace is Upwork. At present, there are more than 400 categories of freelancing jobs. Now the question is how will it work? To get work here, you need to bid i.e. apply. A man posted on a job upwork there are a lot of people bidding there.
This time the person who posted the job saw a perfect guy and gave him a job. Then as soon as the work is given, the value of that work goes to the upwork. After the completion of the entire work, take some commission of upwork and give the rest of the money to the work done.
That’s how income comes from upwork. Here’s a question most people would like to know that if the customer is not able to find out after giving the job, will I not get the money? Yes, in this case, if the customer does not reply for seven days, then the money will be automatically added to your account. That’s how to work from upwork.
Fiverr is the most popular for working in medium size freelancing. There are currently 3.42 million active customers on Fiverr. Here you will find different types of small and big jobs. There is not much time-consuming work in fiber.
It’s usually $5 more here. But the work system here is a little different. A customer doesn’t post a job here. Here’s where a freelancer publishes his gig. Now what is a gig? A gig is information about what a freelancer can do, how much money he needs to pay for his work, etc.
Now a customer sees that gig and finds a freelancer and gives him work. The payment system of fiber is the same as upwork.
It’s also a popular marketplace. It currently has 31 million users. You can choose any one of the more than 1800 jobs from here. But there’s not much income here. It’s not very popular again. Here too, the type of work to get done is like upwork.
You’ll get the same payment. There are a little more experienced freelancers in upwork and fiber so here you can start working early. One aspect of it that i don’t like it is that i.e. you don’t give bid free here i.e. you have to buy and work.
These three are the most popular freelancing marketplaces. You can start working on any one of them. The most needed in every marketplace is its own freelancing profile. Now I’m going to talk about it for you.
What should a freelancer’s profile look like?
Your marketplace profile plays the most role in getting a freelancing job. The person who will give you the job will first look at your profile and understand what you can do well on.
Especially in the fiverr marketplace, profile plays the most role because direct freelancer is hired in Fiverr. Therefore, your marketplace profile is very important. Let’s take a look at what should be in a profile.
The title will depend on what you do well in. That is, you have to write the title in such a way that your client understands what you can do well in a sentence. Therefore, your marketplace profile is very important.
Since you can get some idea about your work in the title, you can write more details in the description. Besides, you need to convince the client about the fact that you love your work.
3. Educational Qualifications
This is not very important, but if the educational qualification is in your profile, the client will know more about you. Moreover, under the influence of this, your chances of getting work will increase a lot.
4. Video Description
Currently, it is on the profile of many marketplaces. You can explain more detail to the client through a short video about your work.
Under the influence of this, the client will be aware of your skills, willingness to work. However, video description has become very important nowadays because it gives some recognition to your work.
The portfolio is a page where your entire biodata will be given. That is, a client in the portfolio will know everything about you. Currently, separate portfolios can be created in marketplaces. You can also create a portfolio website for yourself.
Keeping this in mind, you need to create a beautiful marketplace profile. Profiles play the most important role in getting your work done. The better your profile, the higher the chance of getting work. Therefore it is very important to look at the profile.
Where to learn freelancing?
Today, freelancing training centers have been set up in many places. You can learn to work on a specific subject by enrolling there. But there are some centres where work is not taught, then there is a chance to cheat again. You can do big freelancing courses online from some trusted training centers.
Since freelancing is not a boy’s game, it is not necessary to know only the basics. You need to be an expert on a specific subject.
Cheating on freelancing
Nowadays, many people cheat while learning freelancing. Especially in the case of online courses, the chances of such fraud increase a lot. There are many unscrupulous people who do not take money from the people in the name of the course and do not teach work later.
There’s another serious mistake that many people make. At present, spam work is taught in the name of teaching freelancing work. Especially those who are new, they wear such frauds.
In the case of newcomers, many people think that it is very easy to earn money online if you want to. There’s really no difference between the online and the real world. What does spam do now? There are many types of spam freelancing work.
Let’s say they tell you the name of an app or website where if you click on an ad, they will pay. Now after a certain amount of money is deposited, you can withdraw that money.
But later you saw that even after depositing the money, you could not withdraw any more money, that is, the hard work here was completely in the water. Again, it may be the app or website of the company where you are learning freelancing.
It seems that only they will benefit in this case. That is, you can never read such a thing. The only way to get rid of this is to join a popular and long-serving company.
At present, in ten minutes school, bahubrihi, e-shikhon, etc., you can learn everything by doing a good quality course at a low cost.
Our last word
Freelancing is a free profession. You can work here according to your wishes. If you can do any one of the freelancing categories online, you can create your freelancing career. At present, a lot of young men and women in Bangladesh have made their own careers by freelancing.
Especially for those who have good knowledge about online but they are unemployed, freelancing can eliminate unemployment. Again, it is very good for yourself as well as for the country because you are bringing money from other countries to your own country.
