We discussed 

And now the most difficult goodbye???? PART-4 

Here you will learn about 8 tips every new freelancer or anyone working online must know about. Without wasting time let's dive in,


TIP NO.1 HOW WE'LL GET PAID?

It is 2021 and still many people think or considering taking risks about online payments!
and many will say that Paypal isn't available in their country so they don't work online, seriously? Paypal isn't the only option my friend.

You can create a virtual bank account on Payoneer and simply connect with any freelancing platforms online and get money to your account! it's as simple as it sounds.



TIP NO.2 DON'T FORGET TO CREATE A PORTFOLIO

Yes, never do that.

 The portfolio is having a small page in which you can explain yourself and the skills or services you will provide, this will gain the trust of clients.

HOW TO CREATE A PORTFOLIO?

Simply, you can create your portfolio for free online, just go to your search engine and type create a free portfolio online. Do you know what's more interesting? creating a portfolio Gig on Fiverr and selling it! It's a skill too.



TIP NO.3 CREATE TUTORIALS

If you can create tutorial videos on Youtube then my friend you have cleared the half puzzle!

Not only on Youtube but also on other social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and so on. Mainly Youtube, this one is a game-changer. It has changed many lives if you are not getting any audience for youtube then use a tool called Tubebuddy for your channel growth and believe me you will get a lot of audience/viewers/clients from youtube by creating tutorials. Any kind of content that shows your work can help you grow your freelancing services.



TIP NO.4 IMPROVE YOUR ENGLISH COMMUNICATION/TYPING SKILLS

If you are working online, you'll speak with many people worldwide, and the topmost speaking language globally is English. At least you must have a basic communication knowledge of English because if a client asks you a question you must be ready to answer or else you'll lose the work!

And you must also have good, fast typing skills. Yes, it is also very important to finish your work quickly and without any grammar mistakes, or else simply install a free chrome extension which everyone working online needs Grammarly.




TIP NO.5 DON'T SELL FOR FREE

Don't ever provide a service for free. You might finish work in 5 to 10 mins but remember the effort it took to learn the new skill. And people generally don't value free stuff psychologically speaking anything available for free is worthless. 

To keep up with the clients and build future relations, you can give a coupon or discount for your service but not totally for free.

You can give your content for free like tip no.3 youtube videos, blog articles, and so on. Make this stuffs to promote your paid services.

NEVER PROVIDE YOUR PREMIUM SERVICE FOR FREE.



TIP NO.6 TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH

 Wait is this topic even important at this time? yes my friend this is the most important one. Choose a perfect chair for you to work on your PC you must have a perfect setup for yourself.

REMEMBER YOUR HEALTH IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN MONEY.

Yes! for every 10 to 30 mins stand up, walk or take a deep breath or meditate for just 5 mins and get back to your work, many working online are suffering from back pains, neck pains, etc. As a famous saying goes HEALTH IS WEALTH.



TIP NO.7 PROMOTING OUTSIDE FREELANCING WEBSITES

Don't just simply publish your work or Gig on freelancing platforms and wait for clients. There is a big competition going on online in 2021 and waiting like this may fail almost 90% of the time always try your best to promote your services outside something called BRAND AWARENESS.

This is also based on TIP NO.3 grow outside the freelancing platforms. Because in the long term you'll have clients to contact you and get your services from outside those freelancing platforms.



TIP NO.8 IS NOT A TIP BUT IN REALITY HAVE PATIENCE 

Generally, when you start working online you must have patience. The main problem with today's freelancers that s is they don't have patience and they quit after some time.

You would have created everything perfectly but in some cases, you'll find no clients for almost 3,6,8 months, or even 1 year of your freelance career. Believe me, you'll learn more and be able to start an agency or guide anyone who is planning for a freelancing carrier.

If you have patience in the end you'll build a strong online business that will never go down and you can totally rely on yourself! as you have your own business from home. No 8-hour job and you'll work full-time from home.
