The Life of a Freelancer
Itâs not as easy as it seems. For one thing, you must understand that as freelancers you are self-employed. And with the luxury of self-employment comes the hard fact that no one is looking out for you. That means you have to constantly be on the lookout for new jobs. The good news is that in a world of nearly seven billion people, there are always people on the lookout for writing or web design help, making freelance projects abundant! The Internet is a world all about content including writing and design, though video and audio content is becoming just as important.
Nevertheless, freelancers have to be aggressive in finding new work. Some freelancers consult auction sites, whereas others contact clients directly. Hereâs another option: free gig websites, such as Craigslist or our own Gigbucks.com. Free sites offer small services, usually individual assignments. With our own Gigbucks.com, depending on the complexity of the assignment, the pay can be anywhere from $5 to $50.
