Learn A Skill:

The first thing to become a successful freelancer is to learn a skill. Select your profession according to your passion.

If you are interested in graphic design, you can start logos, brochures, posters, business cards, illustrations, etc. Do you have technical skills? Then start developing systems. You can also choose search engine optimization and digital marketing.

There are hundreds of other services on freelance platforms. Cooking, gardening, medicine, dress design, etc. can be adopted.

You can learn a skill from an online/offline course or by going to a school. Youtube is the top video search engine. It is best for learning purposes.

 

Research On Freelancing Platforms:

The next thing is research on freelancing platforms. Fiverr, Upwork, PeoplePerHour, Freelancers, Guru, etc. are the most popular of them. Do some research work on all of these. There are a lot of other platforms where we can do freelance business.

There are two main types, traditional and non-traditional freelance marketplaces. A client post a project and freelancer bid on the project in the first one. Whereas, freelancers post gigs (projects) and client messages to freelancers in the second ones. Upwork, Guru, and Freelancers are traditional. Fiverr is a non-traditional site. PeoplePerHour is a combination of both.

 

Use Social Media:

Social media is the most powerful media of this decade. Use its power. Share your freelance projects on these sites. FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, LINKEDIN, TWITTER, PINTEREST, YOUTUBE, WHATSAPP, etc. are the most popular social media platforms. There are many others which you can use.

The positive use of this media can help to achieve our goal. Sharing our every project on this will increase our clients. It helps in growing businesses. 

 

Create Profiles On All These:

The next tip is to create profiles on all these platforms. Create your accounts on Fiverr, Upwork, Peopleperhour, Freelancers, and Guru. Also, use their mobile applications.

A lot of tips are available on Google and Youtube to create successful profiles on all these platforms. You can also use their help sections.

Create your accounts on at least five social media sites. Share freelance projects on all these. Must use Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn. These will help you in advertising yourself as a  freelancer.

 

Be Consistent:

We will not achieve anything if we aren’t consistent. Being consistent in anything will help us to become successful. Post your services effectively. Bid on projects like professionals. It will take time to grow your freelance business.

After sharing your portfolios on these marketplaces, you will start getting orders. Be patient. Do your work effectively. You have a single order or many orders in a queue. Give your best shot. Be the best version of yourself. Sell your services through your social media profiles.

 

Never Stop Learning:

When not getting orders, learn something new. You have twenty-four hours in a day. Sixty minutes in an hour. And sixty seconds in a minute. Spend every moment wisely. Never stop learning.

Learn a skill every month. Polish these skills every day. Spend your free time learning.

 

Create Schedules:

The next tip is to create schedules for every task. Follow this timetable and give timely deliveries. Your clients will like you and your work.

 

Be Communicative:

Be communicative with your customers. Be responsive and quickly give replies to their messages and comments. Don’t use bad words. Good communication skill has the key to success in this technology world.

Hire a person if you can’t remain active 24/7. He/she will remain online when you aren’t available.

 

Do Smart Work:

Do smart work instead of hard work. Use premade templates of your work. Save time from projects which you have done before. Don’t do hard work but smart work. Plan everything before starting. Create schedules and divide your work into low and high priorities.

 

Hire Others:

Grow your team when you have a lot of work. It can take up to years. But don’t stop.

At first, you can outsource your work. It will not take very much investment. But the profit will be low. And then, others. Develop your company and grow your freelance business.

 

Be A Leader, Not A Boss:

A leader is a person who leads his/her team. He/she helps them in their learning phase. A leader doesn’t give orders of something which he hasn’t done himself. The team members like their leader if he/she is very kind, courageous, cooperative, and good-hearted.

 

Be Positive:

Be positive about everything. Positivity is the thing that leads to success. When you are getting failures, don’t get dishearted. Every failure is the next step to our goal. Try again and again. Take risks because these are opportunities.

When not getting profit, think positive. Take every change in a positive way. Nothing lasts forever. Every day you are spending on hard work will take you closer to your desired results.

 

Invest:

The last tip of this article is to invest. Invest in yourself and your business. Investing in yourself means to invest in learning. Learn new things every day. Read more and learn more. It will give you lifetime profits.

Business investments are also mandatory. You have to give the employee’s salaries, utility bills, etc.
