Thread: Your #1 Tip for Freelancing?

  1. #11
    that's some great tips...mine would be always take a deposit for big projects before starting it. It serves as a leverage for both parties. If one cannot commit, then, you can find other clients that needs your service.

    I can go with friends but NEVER family. Some guys really take advantage of you even if they are horribly distant relatives.

    Real life tips, some of them i experienced already. Mine is:

    -Always inform your employer if you are planning to be off for some days or if there's a problem or any reason that is preventing you from finishing your work.

    The best way to be hired is to be Trusted and of course quality = $.


  5. ah really useful tips. You should overrate yourself always.
    Nowadays with so many freelancers out there , its better if you can get all job offers. The work would be slower , but its better than looking for weeks for new project after finishing yours..

    Remember, you are NOT employed by the client. You work with them on YOUR terms of service. Of course, you should provide the best customer service.

  8. Mine would be: Seek additional work with current clients more than acquiring new clients.

    It's far less work and money to expand an existing client relationship than to create a new one.

    Keep track of multiple projects either in a software program or in a moleskine.
    Learn to research quickly and to type faster.
    Vary tasks throughout the day

    My one tip is: Communication, always keep your clients well informed of your progress, never let a clients questions go unanswered and always keep a open line to your clients concerns.
