By now, you must have heard or read about freelance and how it has made life easy for many people. However, what you do not know is that freelance is still a big secret because many just know what it is but not the benefits it can bring them.

Sadly, Nigerians constitute one of those nationalities that are yet to take advantage of freelance. Other countries know about what they can gain from it and are joining freelance sites in droves. For instance, according to a survey conducted by Forbes, freelancers now make up over 35% of US workforce. That percentage represents about 55 million Americans. Don’t these people know something that you don’t know?

The interesting part of all of these is that the population of people who go freelance does not indicate lesser chances for you. The reason is that the sky is big enough for everyone. In as much as you have a skill that you can sell, you will always find buyers who are willing to pay you for it. And as Nigerians, we are naturally good in anything we give out attention. So, you can be confident that you can perform better than many people from other countries.

For the sake of Newbies, what is freelancing and who is a freelancer?

A freelancer is a person who is self employed and render different services for clients and get paid for the services. the services ranges from those that require special skills like programming and web development to those that may not really require any specialized skill like copy and paste, data entry, transcribing etc. the services that can be rendered as a freelancer varies a lot. they include: programming, writing, copy writing, graphics creation/editing, data entry, singing, translation etc.

Now consider the following reasons why you should go freelance.

1. You learn on the job yet get paid for it: Anybody who is a freelancer will agree to this fact. You don’t have to wait till you are perfect before you start selling your skills. As a matter of fact, what will bring you towards perfection is frequent practice of your skill. But what can be better than the fact that you are learning the ropes of the job but you are getting paid for it by different buyers. You have to realize that people need what you have!

2. It’s a cheap way to earn: If you are a worker, you are aware that a sizable part of your income goes into trying to keep earning, such as transportation, dressing, feeding etc. If you go into freelance, you don’t have to worry about spending to ensure you keep earning. Freelance costs almost nothing to start or to operate!


3. You get to work for fun: Any skill you have is an indicator that it’s something you enjoy doing. Unlike scenarios where you get tasks that you don’t like; in freelance, you work based on your strengths. You pick a niche that you are comfortable in and then work as though you are having fun. You can as well punctuate work with making phone calls, checking your social media accounts, singing, or doing anything you like. Pure fun!

4. You don’t have to work from 8am-5pm: Who says you have to put in nine hours of work each day before you can make ends meet? Then that person is yet to know what freelance means. Every freelancer knows that work schedule is often flexible. You can work from 8am-10am and have a long stretch of break only to work from 4pm-7pm. This is just an example that freelancers can relate to.

5. It’s a great way to earn full time: So you are looking for a job and you’re yet to find any? Try freelance (after all, it costs nothing!). You can dedicate the data that you use on social media to an avenue to earn while you wait for one of your applications “to click.” Many Nigerians who are unemployed have since turned to freelance and have not regretted it ever since. You can take freelance as a full time job and it will pay you well (especially since the payment is in foreign currency!).

6. It’s a great way to or part time: Are you a student or a worker? Are you in need for another source of cash? Freelance has got your back. Freelance does not mandate you to work non-stop for hours. You can work at your pace. That means you can work a few hours each day to shore up your income. 3-4 hours each day as a part time worker can be a great boost to your finance.

7. You can choose your holidays: Those who work in an office environment know how difficult it is to get their off-days approved. But when you work as a freelancer, you get to have a lot of free time for yourself. For instance, you can have your weekends all to yourself. However, there are times that you need to stay away to attend to certain issues around you or just to relax. Freelance makes it possible. You can choose your holidays without taking permission from anyone.

All in All

For most people, three factors serve as the basis of accepting a job offer and they are: a good take-home pay, convenient working conditions and the opportunity to improve their skills through use (performance). Freelance offers you these three benefits and many more.

If you are still toying with the idea of trying freelance, make the decision today! You need to put it at the back of your mind that the skill which you have and look down on can fetch you cool cash beyond your imaginations!

Freelancing has been amazing bro. I don't know what I would have done without freelancing becus naija na cast country. I av been able to quit ma job as CCR for more than one year now. It has not been easy but for naija no body send u o.

Second class upper from a good university, yet I couldn't land a good job. Na useless job wey won kill me I got. Thank God I had to chase freelancing badly. At least it pays me more than my job back then.

In fact, God bless those who created such platforms. I am scaling things up now and improving on my skills. I know the industry very well and still learning as I advance.

I have trained very few people though and some of them have been able to use freelancing to survive this useless country.

All thanks to freelancing jareee

I have been learning logo design for the past one year now, please can I go to, for example fiverr now? I am afraid that somehow, I will screw things up. In the course of this one year, I learnt Photoshop (for logo designs as in mock-ups, change of colours, backgrounds etc,) Illustrator and After Effects, I am not well grounded in AE yet but very comfortable with Illustrator. Please help me guys.

Hahahahahaha. Whatever u like, call it. Abeg, I use God beg u, come privately, I can show u part of my earnings okay and even current earning. Bro, anyone who makes 164k can still make more by sharing his or her knowledge. Some of the Top USA freelancers makes more money by offering to teach or lead others too. Learn to make more money in life no matter how much u are making. Paid knowledge is more profiting than anything else.

I want u to search for Tailopez online. Okay, that guy makes millions of dollars by teaching people what he did to make plenty money.

If u like, sit down and say u av made enough and u will not make more, that is ur own problem! Also, a client I work for actually paid for my online course. He paid for me to learn one of Tailopez courses. Bro, the course is expensive man. Me will not bring such money for any course but that client paid for that course for me to improve my skills and render the services to his father's company. He still gets to pay me for rendering the service he paid for me to learn.

What can be sweeter than that? If u doubt me, come message me, I will show u and if u are a honest person, come back here and change ur comment after that.

One thing I want to learn is the skill to sell my self. Those with such skill earn a lot. U may know a lot but if u can't market ur self out there, u may never be noticed and may earn less.

Thank u. And don't always doubt everything u see online.

You are very right.

Most times I stay awake all night to ensure I deliver a job.

But I am always happy each time I remember that I don't have to rush into a crazy Lagos traffic every morning.

But despite the stress, I make money more than I ever did at my last job. Besides I work at my own pace and time. Just that the harder I work, the more money I make

I never told u I will not accept any job offer. Look, freelancing does not mean u must never work okay.

That is wrong impression. I looked for browsing cheat becus I had large files to upload and download from clients. Also had some video tutorial to watch. What do av to say when u want to send 3.4gig of data to just one client?

People like u are the reasons some people don't talk here. Freelancing helped me quit my job in 2016! Yes. I quit becus I now earn better than I was paid.

Now, if I get a job that pays better than my ex job, I will surely take it. Accepting such job doesn't mean I will quit freelancing! That is why it is called freelancing. U can always do it anytime


I never said freelancing made me a millionaire. Some av made that but I av not. What is 164k in today's economy? It is nothing bro. Also, I made it clear that this month, I av only made about 50k and still hoping to earn more.

U don't need to sound like this. I am ready to share lots of data to make u believe me. And I am interested in making u believe me. Send me a message, I will call u. Once u are convinced, u are free to come back here and change ur comment if u are honest enough.

Selling of one's skill is not a bad thing bro! That is what I'm learning! One can still make money from what he knows about.

Freelancing is good. But be aware that there are risks involved. If you get involved in forex you may lose a lot of money. Also MLM fraudsters are common online.
