What should a person have to start freelancing?
Who can become a freelancer? Good question! There are no set rules as to who can become a freelancer and who cannot become a freelancer. If you have a skill that is in demand in the freelancing market, then you can be a freelancer. Due to high unemployment and bad condition of businesses, the freelancer industry is rapidly growing. In the aftermath of the Global Financial Crises 2007, the freelance industry grew dramatically.
It is not a matter of disgrace to work in the freelance industry. It’s not that only unemployed persons are working in the freelance industry. The fact is employed people are also working in the freelance industry. Moreover, some people leave jobs to join the freelance industry because they can earn more here. During my work as a freelance writer, I have observed that highly qualified and highly professional individuals and firms are also working in this industry. Lots of freelance workers work as a full-time employee in some company and they do freelance work as a part-time job.
The main categories where employers post jobs include, but not limited to Writing & Translation, Graphic Designing, Finance & Accounts, Law & Humanities, Programming & Technology, Web Development, Online Marketing, Advertising, Videos & Animation, etc. People with any qualification and experience have room in freelance industry. Even people with no marketable skills can also immediately start working and earning.
If you have a skill and you can deliver a service in a professional manner, freelancing can pay you more than a full-time job. I have seen a lot of freelancers who are earning thousands of dollars a month. Some people are even running firms of freelancers because they get bulk work from freelancing websites.
