Freelancer Should Avoid These Mistakes


“Mistakes can be happen being as human”
Once, my business coach suggested me. Definitely, we are human and freelancers are human. And we all did mistakes in our lives.
But I still think unpleasant. I think like a failure. I’d agree to my vision down. I was an awful freelancer.
So when I see my freelancing community and I understand that, really, other freelancers create errors too. Here, I’m highlighting those mistakes with you.


Some awful Mistakes you should avoid


Here are the some bad mistakes which a Freelancer does during contract:

  1. Without a contract working: This gives the impression to be pretty frequent. Sometimes, freelancers start their working on their own behalf and their skills so they don’t take care of it as a serious business. In some situations, we just belief to our clients excessively. We can’t suppose they could inflexible us… until they do.

  2. Working with unknown client: Another important mistake is working with unknown client. Over and over again, we search out a bad impression about a client. We notice large numbers of red flags pop up, but we pay no attention to them. We have to earn the money. We want this client on our group. At that time we have to perform carefully while selecting clients. After completing projects when no responses comes from clients then we blame to ourselves. That time we face heavy loss and lost of clients as well because we are familiar with all along this was an awful idea.

  3. Missing time limit and scheduleThis is the thing which I hear the most from people who appoint freelancers. I’ve got numerous of customers who find me after being burned by freelancers who pay no attention to others, ignore given deadlines after deadline. Excuses not give the proper answer to the employer. So time limit and schedule should be determined before starting any project.

  4. Advance payment before starting a new projectThis is one more common mistake done by the freelancers before starting their new project. Freelancers show more trust on their employers and not demand to deposit advance in your account. They trust the client too much. Be careful on internet and demand to your business partner for a down payment first, before starting to do their work.

  5. Low Charges–Freelancers’ insecurities are most apparent in our fees. We charge low fee, because we don’t actually trust in what we’re worth. So we finish up getting paid method under the value we really bring to our clients.

  6. Too much work loading– Little charging hardly affects the performance. If you are doing a good job and not getting paid up to your expectations will loose your stamina and energy. To achieve handsome remuneration, you need to complete more projects to gain your income goals. Keep in mind, don’t exceed your limit and you finish up missing deadlines, Avoid to delivering bad quality work.

  7. Ignoring your market in your good time–Sometimes freelancer ignore the marking in his/ her good time which is a bad thing in this field. If you are a freelancer then pay your concentration to your market community. A Freelancer needs to be a continuous marketing, getting leads, and to warm up your community. Your proper attention should be on your community.

  8. Clearness in deliverables–If you are in a contract and have not cleared its deliverables then what you will do at this stage? It is not a good one? Prescribes your clients role in the completion of the project. Clearly understand what type of outputs you’re going to provide, and when? When you are going to get paid, and when? Clear your worries and doubts with your employer. Don’t even think about getting paid.

  9. Have you a “kill fee” in your contract? – Sometime I did a mistake in my contact. Lot of times, I forgot to take in my kill fee, or Up to what limit my client has to pay if he/she suspend the project after I’ve started work on it.

  10. Submitting finished work and customer files with no getting paid firstSometime overly trusting freelancers does this mistake. Keep in mind, that, once you’ve twisted over the completed product to the customer, you don’t have a grasp on them any more.

  11. Improper follow up on proposals–This is a mistake we dome mostly in our projects while contracting online. We lost our clients due to improper follow up on proposals. Keep in touch with your contractors to receive positive response and proper feedback.

  12. Communication gap–Here’s another mistake many freelancers don’t even become conscious they’re making. Freelancers should understand the requirements and needs of contractor. Because communication gap creates different hurdles and difficulties between the freelancer and contractor. When you share your views with your business partners its means you’re showing your client that you fully know what they’re trying to achieve, and you know how to help them get there.

  13. Ignoring your finances–There are lots of Freelancers who are doing the online jobs, which means many of us are not at ease dealing with numbers and money. It’s too simple to sweep up finances under the rug, until tax time comes.

How to start a business as a Freelancer and grip to Your First Real Client


How to start a business as a Freelancer and grip to Your First Real Client


This blog will help you to find out best ways and techniques of “how to take hold of first real client”. Some freelancers fail due to the lack of experiences to judgments the personality of different persons in their real lives.

I think that the main reason that new freelancers fail is a lack of real life experience. For a successful business, a person should have skills to manage different types of problems and supervision quality to maintain and control the tasks in a difficult environment. For a freelancer, skills of judgments and managing abilities should be exists to meeting clients expectations. They can’t compromise your lack of quality in your work, but in the best way that you sell yourself for them. You should have grip on your professional and technical knowledge to find-out real clients.

For a good freelance designer and for a good developer (or whatsoever your freelancing area of expertise is) only counts 75% of the professional skills needed to achieve something. The remaining 25% are development and account supervision skills. If you know the style to communicate with your client and usually how to manage their prospects, then you are by now one step to the lead of the game. You just need an exercise to show your experience to do that.

Following points helps you to get you started out as a freelancer. So, let’s Study the following useful Steps to understand the role of a freelancer.

 

Step 1. Your Standard Portfolio


If you are a new freelancer and how will you convince your clients with your proposals?  Clients wish to see your proposal examples of your work, and if you have nothing to show, they possibly won’t take a second look to your profile. So make your Portfolio up to expectations of your online clients.

The only opinion on the subject of portfolios that I have is this; make your portfolio. Don’t use a nonspecific outline. Try to add your own technique to make a standard portfolio and makeup to it in some way. Your standards portfolio should be professional.

 

Step 2. Get Real (Paying) Clients


Your real Spec Sheets helps you to find-out real clients. I have experience of using spec sheet, or a speculative work sheet, in couple of organizations. It is mainly a spreadsheet that has the company name, contact of that company, email and website of that company (if it is applicable).

After collection of data of 20 to 30 companies on your spec sheet, you to visit one by one to those company locally. Call is not a suitable at this stage. Email is also not a suitable too at begging. You can talk with then in their departments and talk to someone. It is an easy task to put the phone down or remove an email.

Be sure and ask to meet the manager. If it is not possible (due to range of business), then you have to meet with marketing experts in any open area environment, or at least you have to chat with the receptionist.

Don’t trust too much on your shoulders because you are at begging stage currently but not a boosting time. Currently you are a local freelancer who is looking to start work with the existing community. If you get attention of some clients then make a list to contact like a professional.

 

Step 3. The best Quote rate


I suggested the quote on a daily rate. I also propose that what task and duty you should to do. Find your base daily Quote rate and make use of that rate to decide how much the site will cost.

After that, you will decide to judge the time-span of a project as you go. That is the form I have for making sites for my clients. These judgments will guide me to understand the ability of decision making on my behalf. That is my base rate and I bond to it faithfully.

Now you have selected your outline by your mind.

For all time suppose private clients to bargain and proposal with you. Some freelancers pump up their prices by 10% or 15%. The Most of freelancer’s charge 10 to 15% but I don’t appreciate it.

 

What is best for me?


So now you are able to perform your own job as a freelancer. Make your full efforts to make sure that site is the complete at best level and accomplish the whole thing that it should perform and more. You have to decide that “what is best for me” as a freelancer.

 

Your Turn


Now you have to analyze your performance in this process and finds the results that “How did you get your first client”?

How to become a freelancer in Global World?


How to become a freelancer in Global World?


I receive lot of emails and questions of my friends that is “How to become a freelancer in global world”. I have lot of stuff to share my experience as a freelancer to my friends. I always say that “Freelancing is a profit oriented business in today’s environment”. I personally have of last3-4 years as a freelancer. My carrier as a freelancer has been quite successful and victorious. During my career, I got many chances to work on long and short term projects; I have great experiences to designed products for international clients and I have made tremendously good contracts and victorious relations with some of very famous personalities (regarding freelance projects) from the Silicon Valley.

In this duration of my career as a freelance worker, I was paying attention to work with only for intercontinental clients & companies. My targeted market for getting freelance business were; USA and UK. On some occasions, I have done very few projects from Canada as well. So in global world, freelance job as career, is not so difficult to find. If you have skills to meet the challenges and targeted market then you have to prove yourself as a successful freelancer. If you have wished to win the projects deadlines then you have to achieve those targets at any cost. Once you gain your first client then you can do your own business as a freelancer on behalf of your experience and skills.

Freelancing job is an independent job like another carrier, which you can do it as part time or full time depending on your hard-work to chase your targets. If you gives your proper time to complete your projects and you done your assignments within planed duration then you as a freelancer will gain attention of international clients as well as project sellers. As a freelancer worker and allocation of your time to your projects will give you handsome income. International market is available for you to increase your income. But here you should keep in mind that “it’s not a piece of cake”, the only advantage of freelancing job is that you are your own boss.

Starting job as a freelance can be quite simple or very hard to do. You have your own authority and decision making skills to meet the targets. So freelancing is a type of creation of your personal business and for successful freelancer, you have to be perfect in some matters like you have skills of a business man, a software developer, a marketer, and a designer of your own self. During this period, you have to supervise your time to your projects, learn different ideas, a market to get updated news & ideas and then to sell project to international clients. If you have all these mentioned abilities and skills, have made up your mind to do this job as an international contractor then yes you can do your own business as a successful freelancer. I have some useful material regarding successful freelancer globally. Please read the following steps to proceed further.



Step 1 – Make your Credentials



Your online portfolio is compulsory to got projects. If you would like to become a freelancer (local or international) you have to give an idea about your skills and abilities in shape of proposals. These proposals and online portfolio will clear the concept of your personality and the capabilities you have. International clients will not believe on you what you say verbally. They need proof of your work and skills so for that you need an online profile / portfolio that mean you are paying Rs 2,000 on a domain and hosting account.



Step 2 – What to put in Portfolio/profile


Your portfolio should have your own skills. You have to show your best work to your clients according to your specialties. If you are a designer, you have to show the best design you have made, if you don’t have your own design or theme then you not show fake projects & don’t rip off other people’s work to your client. You have design your own theme and template. If you are a programmer, then make your own case studies of those projects you have done previously, some time detailed case studies showing technical knowledge of an expertise. If you have some small snippets of code that you can give it for free put them online too so a technical client can see your style of code. Also remember some work pays the bills while some work hangs on the wall of fame so just show the work that is worth hanging on the wall.




Step 3- Where to get clients



As a freelancer, I also started my work from Rentacoder.com, it is authentic and reliable web link for new freelancers. It provides a good place to pitch for clients. oDesk.com is yet another location to start your career as a freelancer but it needs patience. On this website, I got my first client after bidding for more than three weeks on a regular basis / daily on rentacoder.com and the first client I got was of just $4. But I have remembered that when I was finally left the rentacoder.com the last bill of my client was paid $2200 to me on this website. So it’s a hard-hitting and tough side and don’t expect too much at beginning and don’t bid too high if you are starter climb the ladder don’t make a jump.
Another important thing to remember is that; if you are being unlucky in getting any bid then have to try to find out the cause why clients are not choosing you? Another thing is that you should have good English language skills. Your expressions and excitement to avail projects can encourage the clients pay attention on you. If you have all the answers “Yes” then the next important thing is your credentials.
There is no doubt that it needs continue hardworking to work so keep on trying freelance job and your hard work will pay off you.





Step 4 – Give away free work


If you are doing a true job and are utilizing your all efforts and skills to complete the hired projects then don’t be mean while adding extra benefit features in the project. If you do any little or extra work (though it was not part of the deal) in your project, I suggests you to don’t charge for it. It will give number of benefits like; First one, your client will be happy from your work and keen interest in the project and will give you good rating Second one you have learned much knowledge from this experience and it will enhance your skills.

As a Freelancer you need to know about Getting Paid

As a Freelancer you need to know about Getting Paid


You’ve recently moved into full-time freelancing. It’s a big move, but there are little hints you have to realize about how to getting paid to freelancers.

As an employee, you perhaps get paid every pay time (It takes normally every two weeks or from time to time weekly) pretty much without human intervention.
Getting paid is not habitual for mostly freelancers. As an alternative, you have to position for your payment and then you should complete it before you initiate your working on a project. You have to formulate planning to be paid every one and every time you obtain a new project.


Eager on Payment Terms


Before you execute any assignment for your customers, you both need to come around a plane on payment conditions. It should be clear that you and your client both appreciate when the payment is outstanding and what type of strategy will be used to made a payment. To avoid confusions, you have to write the terms and condition of payment in a print form.


Obtain a Deposit frank


Before your work start, you have to clear that how much and what type of deposit you have saved chooses to getting paid. Normally, your deposits should be exists between 30 to 50% of your total approximation for the planed project. You have to obtain a deposit frank with your clients.


Using PayPal Network


The best paid tool for freelancers are Paypal. It is the most safe and reliable paid service. Through PayPal, you can create and send invoices to your business partners. You clients can also use this network to pay you from their Paypal account or using a credit card. They can directly transfer money through their online bank accounts. Money can be transfer in your bank accounts with one week. You can easily use your debit and credit cards by Paypal network. By Using Paypal Network, users pay the chargers fee of Paypal on every transaction.


Other Ways to Get Paid


Another suitable and best way to get you paid is through a paper check mailed to your provided home location. I know some clients who favor this mode of payment. There is a main problem to being paid a paper check is the time holdup at the same time as the check goes through the mail system.
·         Barter can be a good enough way to get paid, but only if you are exchanging for products that you would normally exercise anyway.
·         Direct deposit is not usually accessible for a freelancer, even though some bidding websites offers this opportunity. Mostly customers will not appreciate this except you are engaged on a duration project. If you make a decision to use direct deposit to entertain payment from a client make totally sure that you are making a deal with a right individual before you go round over your bank account information.


Some objectionable tools to Get Paid


Are you believed on this phrase that “cash is normally not a good tool to get paid”? Because cash is an item which can easily lose your way or can be stolen in the mail. So cash is not a suitable and good trail for your accounting records.


Send on time Invoices when you are done


As soon as you finish your projects and complete the invoices then don’t delay these invoices. Send these invoices to your clients to receive on-time remuneration. Your action deserved a fast and quickly you will be paid. Don’t offer to your client an option to move on to additional items.


Tracking Income Reminders



In any case of the method of payment, it is essential to maintain an exact record of all income received. Exactly following your income also offer you a picture of just how fine your business is on progress. You can also find out whether you are managing your operating expenses.

Why you show Rude Online?



As a freelancer, if you are active online and updating your online status regularly then it’s very good for your career. As online worker, if you have a blog, numerous social media profiles, an online active portfolio and you maintain records regularly the business will be in your hands. You’re doing accurately and keeping on right track what a freelancer should do, but you’re not getting the right business from market and from new clients. Where is the problem in your set-up and your communication?
It may to be sure something you’re doing incorrect, even when you give the impression to doing all right. Even though having an online status has great importance, so it is not need to show be active online and there is no need to show your active status to others. There is a need which has great importance for your career which is your online reputation. So your online reputation should be good to got freelance work. If being as an active freelance worker, why you aren’t attracting new business from the online sources, could it be because of others observing you as being rude?
Like; your noisily discussion on your mobile in a small café might be irritating people, some general online actions can also be measured rude.
Before you discharge this idea completely, become conscious that it’s simple to by chance upset others, in you online business. In this post, I’ll name some online proceedings (no no’s) that might offend others. Then, I’ll inquire you what you think to be rude


Who are the Social Media No No’s



Mostly social media provides a platform of fun, relaxed method to cooperate with others. It can provide new tools to new potential clients and other freelancers.
The negative aspect in social media tools is that it’s simple to get passed away by the informal impression and make stupid inaccuracy that give the rude impression to others.
Your performance will show your interest in that project so you have to inform very good role in your first assignment. Then you have not chance on second time to make a good first impression, so your image should be admire able by your profile.
Here are some points of social media no no’s that can show you an impression as a rude
  • Not replying to anyone who traces you frankly. If someone trying to reach you directly and your online status is off and you got the message of that person, then immediately you have to answer to that person at any cost. If you not reply promptly to anyone when you get back online who traces you frankly then you can lost that person.
·  Begging for online contract. It is a standard way to share your work with your clients with mutual discussion. You have to discuss your issues with your clients if you face some problem on any stage but it is shame able to begging for online contracts. Naturally it’s okay to mention that you work and discuss work projects from time to time. Some peoples are using just social media to get work from clients. This is not a proper way to obtain a work. Don’t be that person!
·  Irrelevant language and obscenities. Your expertise as a professional man should be exists in your body and language as well in tools you are using to communicate with others. You have to watch carefully to your language while using your favorite social media platform. Too much use of bad language words and online swears words can make a bad thought and effect prospective clients to pass you by.
·  Clients Ranting by name. It is not an issue how persuades you are, it is not right to rant about an important person else in public. If you are extremely sure the other person is a scammer, so the best way to keep your difference private. A possible client who watches out you control about an existing client, may well speculate on behalf of your well treatments to them.
·   Do to excess or mistreatment to auto responders. Some individuals use an auto responder to “welcome” a new social media contact. On the other hand, this approach can easily go wrong and have the cause of making you appear less friendly instead of more sociable. If this is you have this, watch out not to try your auto response too cool.

These are the main mistakes which a person as a freelancer do in social media mistakes online, but social media is not responsible where a freelancer can look like rude. Email should also be treating carefully.


Why to do Email No No’s


Email has been something like a time-consuming and not each one uses it to take full advantage. It’s so simple to make a mistake by email when it using social media tools. Here are some types of email no no’s those should avoid.
  • Do not respond a business email in small number of business days. Not respond quickly is almost certainly the major complaint that diagnosis and clients have about freelancers. There is not need to check your each email every minute, but updated record is compulsory to take actions. If an email has need of an action that you haven’t done, at least accept to receiving it.
  • Being too informal for a contact. As a freelancer, you almost certainly work from your home in a comparatively relaxed environment. On the other hand, your vision may still be working in an official business atmosphere. Except you know the vision well, your pioneer contacts should be recognized. When you feel any doubt, then you to chase the client’s lead.
  • Not treating the consumer’s real concerns. To be successful, conversations has to be a two way street. Carefully read what the view has sent you carefully and confirm that your arrival emails address all of their concerns. If it is doable, support them to ask other questions to make confident that the two of you are on the similar page.
  • Awful language and obscenities. Like as the use of bad language and obscenities had no position in social media, they should not be just your email representative either. While not everybody is insulted by salty verbal communication, many people are. There’s in fact no method for you to be familiar with to sure who will be worried and who won’t.
  • Disusing other freelancers. Another error is that a freelancer also formulate to social media. It’s just not at all truly encouraged to put somebody else down. Rather than making you look in good health, placing other freelancers and ex- clients down in reality makes you look not as good as.


Your Turn


In the end, every freelancer has to make a decision for themselves what online roles are up to standard and how they will do something towards others. Remember that how you conduct yourself online may have an effect on how much work you acquire normally first impression actually has great importance.

Step 1 – Make your Credentials


Your online portfolio is compulsory to got projects. If you would like to become a freelancer (local or international) you have to give an idea about your skills and abilities in shape of proposals. These proposals and online portfolio will clear the concept of your personality and the capabilities you have. International clients will not believe on you what you say verbally. They need proof of your work and skills so for that you need an online profile / portfolio that mean you are paying Rs 2,000 on a domain and hosting account.




Step 2 – What to put in Portfolio/profile


Your portfolio should have your own skills. You have to show your best work to your clients according to your specialties. If you are a designer, you have to show the best design you have made, if you don’t have your own design or theme then you not show fake projects & don’t rip off other people’s work to your client. You have design your own theme and template. If you are a programmer, then make your own case studies of those projects you have done previously, some time detailed case studies showing technical knowledge of an expertise. If you have some small snippets of code that you can give it for free put them online too so a technical client can see your style of code. Also remember some work pays the bills while some work hangs on the wall of fame so just show the work that is worth hanging on the wall.



Step 3- Where to get clients

As a freelancer, I also started my work from Rentacoder.com, it is authentic and reliable web link for new freelancers. It provides a good place to pitch for clients. oDesk.com is yet another location to start your career as a freelancer but it needs patience. On this website, I got my first client after bidding for more than three weeks on a regular basis / daily on rentacoder.com and the first client I got was of just $4. But I have remembered that when I was finally left the rentacoder.com the last bill of my client was paid $2200 to me on this website. So it’s a hard-hitting and tough side and don’t expect too much at beginning and don’t bid too high if you are starter climb the ladder don’t make a jump.
Another important thing to remember is that; if you are being unlucky in getting any bid then have to try to find out the cause why clients are not choosing you? Another thing is that you should have good English language skills. Your expressions and excitement to avail projects can encourage the clients pay attention on you. If you have all the answers “Yes” then the next important thing is your credentials.
There is no doubt that it needs continue hardworking to work so keep on trying freelance job and your hard work will pay off you.



Step 4 – Give away free work



If you are doing a true job and are utilizing your all efforts and skills to complete the hired projects then don’t be mean while adding extra benefit features in the project. If you do any little or extra work (though it was not part of the deal) in your project, I suggests you to don’t charge for it. It will give number of benefits like; First one, your client will be happy from your work and keen interest in the project and will give you good rating Second one you have learned much knowledge from this experience and it will enhance your skills.
