Benefits of working as a Freelancer

Working as a Freelancer offers many benefits to you and possibly to your family. Firstly, you can work on your own time, and schedule.

ü  You set your own time to work without a boss over your head. You set your own  working hours depending on the job you have to deliver to your clients. You can work late at night, early in the morning, whenever you want but should be able to deliver the requested service on time.

ü  Unemployment Solution. If you are not able to find your desired job in your area of  living or even in your country due to the increase of unemployment, then you can still  find thousands of jobs available through internet and work as a freelancer for people  who live outside your country.

ü  Show your talents everywhere. You may have a talent or a qualification that is not at all in demand in your area of living. The internet is here to solve this problem and allow you to demonstrate your abilities worldwide without country limitations. So, you have a specific skill on Photoshop for example, browse Photoshop jobs and start working on the field you are already qualified.

ü  Most jobs are simple and you can learn them after some brief training. There are thousands of services you can start offering to your clients after a brief training. You need to be flexible and willing to learn new things simple but valuable. For example, to be able to write an article for a blog is a very simple task that you can start doing after a tutorial that is included in this e-book. However, there are thousands of people worldwide who earn more than 3000$ per month just by writing articles. So, no need to go again to University to start making money online. Simple jobs – Learn the ropes -Market your profile and you are ready to start a new online career!

ü  Building a sustainable business. Creating a great profile in the most famous freelance websites, guarantees that you will always have customers ordering from you. Many employers buy from top rated workers only. Once you create a good profile in those freelance websites, you will certainly have clients buying services from you for years to come. Creating a good profile needs time but it’s not difficult if you offer high quality services and you follow some specific marketing tips included in this e-book.

ü  High Earning Potential – Financial Independence. Being a successful freelancer can bring you thousands of dollars per month. It’s a fact that thousands of Freelancers earn 2000-5000 dollars per month. Just focus on offering high quality jobs that are in high demand and then you will be able to make more money than in a daily 9-5 job

ü  Enjoy your free time. Work on your own schedule, doing jobs that you like, enjoying more free time for  hobbies is what everyone dreams of. This is what Freelancing Revolution is about to offer you. Just stick to a plan. Learn the basics and start working on your own.  Of course this will not happen within a 2-day period, but it’s something that you can really achieve if you spend some time to learn how the system works and treat it as a real business.

ü  Multiple Income Streams. There are so many Freelance marketplaces where you can work and you are able to have a different income stream from each of them. This is an important advantage since if something goes wrong with one Freelance marketplace, you have an alternative income stream available

ü  Almost no investment costs to start earning money. As you will discover through our guide. You can start earning money without previously spending a single dollar. For example, you can start writing articles or providing SEO services using the “Quick and Easy Copy Paste Method” (will be described later) without spending money at all. Then of course, if you want to make more money you will need some software but the cost will be very low compared to the revenue that will bring to you.

How it works?

Let’s see with an example, how freelancers work and get paid. In Odesk, one of the largest freelance marketplaces, last year there were more than 800,000 job postings available in various job categories. On the other hand, there are thousands of freelancers who apply for those jobs. The agreement takes place through Odesk to ensure as much as possible that both parties will hold their agreement. The freelancer should offer high quality services and the buyer (outsourcer) should pay the freelancer on time. So, they make an agreement inside Odesk. A Freelancer provides the services agreed and then he gets paid. Payments in most Freelance marketplaces are being processed through Paypal.
