The Basics of Freelance Jobs

The textbook definition of freelance work is as follows: it is work conducted by a  self-employed person offering various kinds of online services. These services can be  PowerPoint Presentations, Excel tasks or Desk Research. Most often the freelance work is conducted from home via the internet. Clients pay the freelancer who operates independently as  his/her own boss and has the opportunity to set his own scopes of services and prices. Unlike a self-standing consultant at a large consultancy, freelancing also requires freelancers to attract clients. Usually, a freelancer also has to handle multiple clients at a time while also bringing in new business.

Some people think freelancing pays poorly. Partly because the first section of the name: “free” can be misinterpreted as related to free work. On the contrary, freelance work can pay much better than a normal salary job. Especially, if you’re extraordinary skilled or can take advantage of salary differences between e.g. Asia and Europe. As is the case with the KnowMore freelance platform, where freelancers can earn more than their employed counterparts. Additionally, freelance work is  flexible and allows you to set your own hours and on projects of your choice.

The process of starting a freelance career is easy. But success can be difficult and depends largely on making good choices. Many freelance platforms compete so how do you know what is right for you and your skill set? Here is a brief introduction:

It seems quite clear then that what matters a lot is making the right choices and think in a long-term perspective. One of the important choices is the right choice for a freelance platform you want to be a part of.
