How to start your Freelance Career
What is Freelance?
Which jobs are freely distributable to any job related expertise, these are
known as Freelance.
What is Freelance job I can do?
This is a common question of all novices.
If you are a student then you may start with marketing, writing and data
entry job. And if you have another job and want to start new career with
Freelance for some extra income then writing, marketing, graphics design,
consultancy, MS Office related jobs are for you only. And if you are only
straggling with this Freelance career then you need to be very expert on any
special sector of service like, programming, graphics design, data entry,
database, game programming, web development, software development,
web application, marketing, writing, accounting, video editing, audio
editing, animation etc. Here two jobs are most common for all of you. Yes
these are marketing and writing. It’s no matter that in this Freelance world
on which sector you have expertness, you must need to know good English
writing and need to know about marketing. You may ask me why? This is
very simple answer to you that without these jobs you can’t expose yourself
or your expertness to the world. And without exposing yourself properly you
can’t get proper income from this Freelance career.
How can I start?
This article I am writing for all of you who want to start your career as a
Freelancer. This is not a constant form for starting but just a suggestion for
you. After my research on Freelancing and straggling with this field I got
some experience and I am trying telling you what I found as a best way to
get start and keep running. I found some steps to be complete, let’s see what
Step One: You have to fix up your job sector first.
Step Two: Create a blog and start blogging on your subject which you fix as
your Freelance job sector.
Step Three: Prepare your job sample for getting your Freelance job from
buyer and upload these samples on your blog.
Step Four: Get involve with social media network and invite all of your
friends to visit your blog.
Note: You must need to make your blog updated daily or weekly with new
content about your related articles.
Step Five: Get registration with Freelance Marketplace websites. And just
observe carefully the entire related job demands. Then prepare your self for
them as they demand.
Note: Create your job application with full of your confidence and must
attach your sample work with application. In that application you can mark
all your blogging activities but never include your any kind of contact
information. If you include any kind of contact information with your
application then it’ll just lose your Freelance Career Rank and the
marketplace also can deactivate your account permanently.
Step Six: After minimum one month of your preparation and real job sector
observation start applying on Freelance marketplace for your expected job.
Is it guaranteed that, I must get paid for my job?
Yes, this is most important question for a Freelancer. And here I wish to
clear one point to you that, on web world there have lots of scam so before
selecting your marketplace you need to know where the right place is? I can
tell you three names which are most active, large and prominent Freelance
marketplace where you can join easily. These are:
Now you can ask me why I am telling about them only. Actually I am doing
my job with them right now and I found that they are really strict about their
Terms and Conditions and if a service provider provide complete job
properly to the buyer in right time then they must confirm about the payment
because without any escrow payment they don’t allow any buyer to start
communication with provider. And when a buyer submits the escrow into
that marketplace against any specific job then they allow both buyer and
provider to start their job. After completing a job properly within right time
span then that marketplace check that whether the buyer pay the bill to
provider or not, if the buyer paid to provider then the marketplace release
that escrow amount to buyer’s account otherwise that escrow amount goes to
the provider’s account. So by this way only these marketplaces are give
some guarantee about your payment for your job.
How can I get my payment on my Hand from Freelance Marketplace?
This is another most important topic for a Freelancer. For getting real money
on your hand you have many options to select but here I will only discuss
about few options for you and only those which is allowed by everyone from
anywhere over the world. But I must say that PayPal is the very easy and
smooth way but some of our countries are not allowed by PayPal. So there
have only one way and that is your Visa/Master Debit or Credit Card. When
you get ready to withdraw your money from marketplace then you need to
submit your card number to marketplace and they will transfer your money
to your card and you can use that card to any ATM booth to get your real
money on your hand.
How Can I get my Debit or Credit Card?
If you have any bank account then you can apply to them for your
international credit card and by fulfilling all their necessary requirements
you can get your Visa or Master Credit card easily.
But you have any problem to do so then just go to your marketplace’s
website and set your withdraw option as Pay owner Master Card. When you
will set this option then the marketplace web system will take you to
Payoneer.com and you need to get registration with them. After your FREE
registration with Payoneer.com they will send a Debit Master Card to you
within maximum 49 days (it will depend on your country location). And
when you get that card then you should to inform to your marketplace about
that card and then they will transfer your money to your card and will inform
you. After getting your marketplace confirmation you can use that Pay
owner Master Debit Card to withdraw your money from any ATM booth.
I hope after reading this article you can understand how you can start you
Freelance Career. And you are also have an idea about your confirm
payment and getting real money on your hand. But this is not end of your
journey to learning about Freelancing because this is not all about
Freelancing. When you will get started your busy journey as a Freelancer
then day by day you can get more knowledge about that. I wish you can do it
better by yourself as well.
