Freelancers rejoice! Did you know that the Freelancer desktop app can track hourly progress on your projects, help you earn more, and ultimately build employee-employer trust? Our data analysis from April to June 2014 shows that freelancers who logged in with the desktop app and used it to track their working hours earned an average of 88% more than those who didn’t. That’s because the desktop app can efficiently monitor your work and allow your employer to verify it. As a result, establishing trust between you and your employer is quick and simple!
How exactly can the desktop app help you earn more?
Once you log in to the desktop app, it takes note of the time you started working until the time you stopped — an effective strategy in monitoring your work milestones. You don’t have to deal with manual timekeeping anymore and just focus on your work. Therefore, you get a higher chance of turning over high quality output and impressing your employers more because you are able to concentrate on your tasks rather than keep tabs on your work hours.
Aside from that, the desktop app takes a screenshot of your work in specific time intervals, which your employer can easily access. This is tangible proof of your work milestones and it shows them where you are with regard to meeting work expectations. It’s very important to meet your employer’s work expectations because that helps them realize your value, and in the process, you gain their trust.
The desktop app can solve trust issues
Trust. The Oxford dictionary defines it as, “Firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.” Lack or absence of trust may be one of the major issues that can arise in the freelancing world. It can be very difficult to trust an employee to do his or her work if you don’t have the right verification tools. With the element of face-to-face interaction gone, employers need to come up with a strategy that can help them monitor their employees’ output.
Good thing the desktop app can solve this problem! The screenshots bridge the proximity gap between employer and employee. It eliminates trust issues and provides an efficient venue for employee-employer convergence. When you log in on the desktop app, trust is not just established between you and your employer, but you get the opportunity to maintain it too. By using the app and building employee-employer trust, the chance or probability of getting repeat work increases, ergo, you can count on more future projects!
