How Do You Become A Freelancer? by Jaycobbs(m): 4:26am On Sep 12, 2022

It's not too difficult to become a freelancer if you know what you're doing.

Freelancing is basically you working remotely either for a person or a company without being directly affiliated with that person/company.

For instance, some companies hire in-house graphic designers and pay them monthly, and they handle all creative jobs the company might have. They need to come to work every day and interact with their bosses in the office.

A freelance graphic designer, on the other hand, does not get paid monthly. He gets paid per completed job. He does not come to the office. He can work at any time he wants.

He can also work for as many clients as he wants, as long as he can keep up with the workload. Or as a smart businessman, he can hire people to work for him while he manages things on the front end with the client.

To be a freelancer, you need a skill that people want. You also need to be able to work remotely. An electrician cannot work remotely. His job requires his physical presence. Neither can a medical practitioner.

But a social media manager can do everything he wants to do online.

After having a skill, you can also join freelance platforms like Fiverr, Upwork, Guru, etc. where clients paste jobs and you apply for them, get
hired, deliver, and get paid.


I hope this answers your question.
