Success Story: Musician Starts a Freelancing Career in His Studio

team-buk-two-juan

Juan Martin Porcel Iturralde worked in an international company in Argentina where he was given the opportunity to travel to different countries. He didn’t feel satisfied however, and felt like there was something missing in his career. He thought of giving up his job for his first love, music, but he wasn’t sure how to make a comfortable living out of it.

Not the type to give up, Juan pursued his passion one step at a time. “I never stopped composing. I never stopped my curiosity for music,” he shared. He learned to play a lot of instruments: guitar, drums, bass, piano, and he also learned to manage every virtual instrument such as synths and electronic DAW (Logic, Ableton, Fruityloops, etc.).

Eventually, Juan quit his sales job and settled for a part-time job in the mornings, where he did sales at the Buenos Aires International Airport. The rest of his day he filled with his dream job – music. He was all set; he had a home studio he specifically built for his startup business. “Once I realized that I can get jobs associated with music such as song composition, arrangements, and sound design, I started to invest in some good hardware to have better work quality.”

Finally on the right track to turning his passion into work, Juan sat proud in the middle of his cozy little studio, waiting for customers to whirl themselves in. “I ran into a blank wall. Nobody came in and I didn’t know where to find them.”

That was when he stumbled upon Freelancer.com. “I browsed the web looking for a way to work from my studio. I chose Freelancer.com because I think it is the biggest website for freelancing. It has a lot of projects from all around the world in several categories,” he said.

A few months later, he had already gained the trust of many of his clients, and they kept coming back. He also had to employ a musician and a singer because he was already overloaded with work.

“The speed of my business’ growth is so fast that I’m actually thinking of giving up my part-time job,” he said, adding that working full-time on Freelancer.com might be a great idea because his earnings were better. The more time he dedicates, the more money he would earn.

Providing a comfortable life for his family wasn’t only his sole motivation. Juan said that doing what he loves every day without having to leave home was all he needed. “When you love what you do, you would want to work all day because you enjoy it.”

How-To: Post a Project

24posting_blog

When you need something done, all you have to do is hire a freelancer to help you. At Freelancer.com, the easiest way to do that is by posting a project. Think of it as a free and fast way of putting up a job ad – you just have to fill out a form and it’s done.

Once you post a project, bids from interested freelancers will instantly start coming in. Then it’s up to you to sift through the applicants, check their profiles, and even chat with them to make sure they’re right for the job.

It’s easy to post a project, but it can be difficult to find the kind of people you need for the job. Here’s how to make sure your project page will attract the best and most qualified bidders.

Give a detailed project name

Your project name should be as detailed as possible. It’s what freelancers first see when they browse jobs, and plays a big part in getting people to click on to your project page and bid. Some freelancers actually bid without bothering to read anything else on the project page, so your project name needs to be able to impart as much information about the job as possible.

If you need a graphic designer for example, your title should say what kind of graphic the person would be expected to do (logo, blog illustration, or something else), and what the graphic would be for (a company, a magazine, an ad, so on and so forth). This way, you have more chances of finding someone with the exact experience you need. However, try to be as concise as you can too. A lot of people won’t take the time to read the entirety of a very long project name.

Be specific

The work category dropdown menu that you find at the top of the Post Project page is offered as an option, but it’s a good idea to use it. Answering the question “What work do you require?” will help narrow down your bids. The list has all the popular work categories on the site – such as Writing, Design, and Data Entry – but you can also choose the Customized option that will let you select skills manually.

The skills box is where you can enter five skills that relate to the project. This is where you can get even more specific by entering specialized skills. The freelancers who have the skills you entered will be notified about your project, so if you put in skills that aren’t so general, you’ll be able to target the freelancers you really need.

Provide a thorough job description

The project description is where you lay out everything the freelancers need to know about the job, so be as comprehensive as you can. You don’t have to reveal any sensitive information about your project or your company, but making essential project facts available will help bidders ascertain whether or not they can help with your project or not.

Take the time to explain what you need done and how you want things done. Try to anticipate any concerns freelancers may have and address them. Is it an ongoing project or will it just last a couple of months? Will the freelancer be paid by the hour or by commission? Will the work be done in parts, or do you expect it to be completed in one go? It’s better to lay all this information out at the very start so that bidders know what they’re getting themselves into.

Give examples

Under the project description box, you’ll find a place where you can upload files. Use this space to show examples of what you need for the project, such as sample articles, graphics for inspiration, or even code to start on, among other things. This will help give bidders an even better picture of the project you have in mind.

Determine the project type and budget

The last things you need to pin down are the project type and budget. You have the option to pay the freelancer you’re hiring a set amount at the end of the project, or pay by the hour if the project entails ongoing work.

As for the budget, you can select the currency of your choice from the dropdown menu. You can either pick a budget range or create a custom budget and enter the minimum and maximum bids you want.

Opt for upgrades

If you have room in your budget, take advantage of a project upgrade. There are several options to choose from that will definitely help in getting you more quality bids in a shorter amount of time.

Choices include marking a project urgent, which ensures replies from freelancers within 24 hours; sealing a project, which keeps bidders from seeing what others are bidding; and featuring a project on the ‘Features Jobs and Contests’ page, which allows your project to be displayed more prominently, resulting in more bids. You can also choose to get help from our recruitment team, mark a project as full-time or commission-based, make a project private and hidden from search engines, and havea project require a Non-Disclosure Agreement for confidentiality purposes.

Having a complete project page is crucial in being able to find good freelancers. Follow these tips and you’ll get the bids that you want in no time. Post a project now!

 

Building your Freelance Reputation

25rep_blog

Freelancing entails posting one’s skills online, placing bids, and waiting for clients to come knocking. Commonly, the client no longer conducts lengthy interviews with the freelancer and instead only browses through the freelancer’s profile. On this occasion, you want to immediately capture the client’s attention by showing that you have a solid freelancing reputation. This is because no matter how talented and skilled you are, if employers don’t see evidence of who you claim to be, they will look somewhere else.

Building a reputation online is challenging and made more difficult by the fact that there are many freelancers ahead of you with years of experience. Fortunately, the online outsourcing world is fast-paced and the demand for skills is steadily growing. There is an endless stream of jobs bound to be taken, but will you get picked?

In order to begin building your freelance reputation, consider doing the following:

Produce only the best work – Make it your mantra to deliver only quality results on each and every project. Even though it’s tempting to only do what pleases the client, you also need to think of its impact on a global scale. Your client has tons of people connected to his network and once the project goes live, these people can look at what you’ve done. It will be privy to his friends, colleagues, Twitter followers, and essentially anyone who stumbles upon the project.

Whenever you work on something, keep in mind that someone else aside from your client is going to take a look at it so make every project the best you’ve ever done. The upside is that these people may also be your potential clients.

Strive for a positive feedback – The process of coaxing a positive feedback out of a client may be difficult and lengthy. However, there is an easier way: practice goodwill. What really makes you remembered is not how fast you finished the project or how well you understood the instructions; it is how you acted during every encounter.

Clients may eventually forget how great the project was, but your attitude while doing it will remain and they will be more than happy to spread the word. If you are in a client’s go-to list, chances are, they will tell everyone to put you in their own lists too.

Get inspiration from criticism – It’s almost impossible to please every single person who criticizes your work especially if the project has long been over and client satisfaction has been met. Since you probably won’t re-do the entire project just because a critic expressed dislike, acknowledge the criticism and use it as inspiration to do better on your next project.

Build your profile and portfolio – Your profile and portfolio are your main selling points. You want both to be organized and effective enough for clients to be persuaded that you are the perfect person for the job.

For someone who is just starting out, organizing your profile page adds concrete to your reputation building. Every time you successfully finish a project, get an excerpt and add it to your list of accomplishments.

Include completed projects, samples of your work, and any other proof of your capabilities in your portfolio. Keep it organized and clutter-free for easy viewing as well.

Remember to post a complete resume too. For more tips on how to keep everything neat and complete, read “Is your Freelancer.com profile working for you?”

Doing things with a desire to be the best and going the extra mile to ensure that work is above and beyond expectations are the ingredients to building a strong freelance reputation. Make it your goal to perfect your performance without the thought of prestige lingering at the back of your mind. Before you know it, you’re already a reputable and sought-after freelancer.

The World Is Your Office

freelancer-mobile

Anyone who’s worked a greater part of their lives inside an office dreams of becoming a road warrior working remotely. The stress of constantly churning out work from a cubicle and worrying about the adverse effects of fluorescent lighting is not something we would like to worry about. We’d rather be out of the office, mobile, interfacing with our clients, enjoying the sun and probably a glass of mojito. Better yet, we all aspire to work remotely facing the beach or beautiful scenery.

This lifestyle seems out of our reach, but not entirely impossible. We’ve entered an age where working remotely has become a reality, which anyone can grasp and take hold of. Technology has empowered us to break free from the chains of our desktop and the physical constraints of our workplace.

Many freelancers, managers and entrepreneurs are working in various parts of the world, becoming very location-independent. Let’s take Martin — a British-Chinese freelancer acquiring work via Freelancer.com’s outsourcing marketplace — as an example. He is a transient that travels from one location to another, enjoying the sights and constantly updating his Instagram and photoblog of his latest journeys. To pay for his bills, Martin works on delivering quality structured e-commerce sites while he’s enjoying the soothing sounds of waves crashing on the beach. “I’ve worked most of my adult life as an office dweller in a Dilbert-ish lifestyle. I cringe whenever I remember it. Just like now.“ says Martin.

Our parents have worked inside offices their entire lives. It was imparted to us when we were growing up that we should also follow the same path. Technology and the Internet totally flipped everything over and allowed location-independent work to flourish. Now, we’re free to work anywhere, anytime, and with anyone. It has freed us to live life how and where we want it, instead of being tied down to one location. This level of flexibility has led to better output and higher productivity in the digital workplace.

Another freelancer, Adrian, dives almost everyday in Cebu and Panglao, Philippines, while serving photographers from all over the world, editing their photos. He uses the Freelancer mobile app to keep track of his projects, which lets him stay on top of things wherever he may be. When asked if he’ll ever get tired of what’s he’s doing and return to his old 9-5 job as a retail marketing manager, Adrian replied “No way, I’m not going to trade this for anything. I get to dive when I want, where I want and work anytime I want. My day revolves around the ocean; the night is spent on the rest of the world.”

It’s not just about blazing trails or taking the road less traveled — freelancing is a way of life. It is not just a style of working, rather it’s work-life balance. It gives people the mobility and flexibility required to experience the world without losing their financial stability. This balance needs to be sustained. Freelancers can choose to live this type of lifestyle, however contrary to popular belief, it’s not an easy one. It comes with own ups and downs; the results depends on how one would navigate it. If you do it correctly, you’ll be enjoying life.

Earnings Increased: A Desktop App Success Story

Blog-Entry-Freelancer-Feedback

Experience is definitely the best teacher.

Take Sankalp Agrawal, freelancer and desktop app user, for example. He does freelance work at Freelancer.com while studying Computer Science and Engineering in Delhi. Accepting freelance work for clients gives him the chance to sharpen his skills: website design and development, Android programming, UI/UX design, and even data entry. Being a smart and committed worker, he opts to maximize the perks of the desktop app in his many projects. Here’s our interview with him regarding his take on the desktop app and how beneficial it is to his freelance life:

Freelancer Team: How does the Freelancer desktop app help you in your projects, earnings etc.?

Sankalp: Freelancer desktop app is a great product which helps me get paid for the actual time that I put in for a client. It helps employers trust freelancers like me more because they (employers) can see what I have worked upon and under what time duration.

And, believe me, my earnings have increased over the time because of this. A fixed project might take more time than I’d actually thought of while bidding and accepting. But, having hourly projects done using the desktop app ensures I get paid for every single minute, even seconds that I commit into the project.

FLT: What do you like most about the Freelancer desktop app?

S: Being a UI/UX Designer, I really really like the design. It’s beautiful. If it were a girl, I would have definitely tried to make it my girlfriend. Haha.

It’s really amazing to see products being designed and developed while keeping users in focus since day one. If I have to get very specific about what I like the most, it’s the design of the “Start/Pause” button and the time counter. Plus, the functionality to create invoices with just one click.

FLT: What do you like least about the Freelancer desktop app?

S: Now, that’s a really tough question. I use Windows. On clicking the “Begin Work” button, it shows a loading sign for a very short duration of 1-2 seconds. That’s the only thing I don’t like. Maybe that’s because of Java.

FLT: What features would you like the Freelancer desktop app to have?

S: Since the desktop app already has all the essential features, there is not much else I would wish for. But, I do have two “nice to have” features:
Adding session notes. Adding notes to each image (the functionality that we have on website) is not that much feasible on the app but, being able to add session notes by tapping the pause button would be nice.
A small ping sound. For this, assume I take very short 20-minute breaks. It would be nice if I could customize and set the app to notify me every 20 minutes with a very subtle ping notification.

FLT: Cite or share other personal experiences on how the app assisted you during a project. This will inspire freelancers like you to benefit from the Freelancer desktop app too.

I have already said pretty much everything about the app and my experiences but yeah, there is one specific project experience that I can share.

Recently, one of my friends referred me to a person for some help. Since it was a referral I was very hesitant to quote an amount as the project was slightly complex and I could sense that it would require much time. In the end, we agreed upon hourly pay. Believe me, because I was using the desktop app, I got paid more than I’d have quoted for the whole project. So, it’s a win-win situation only with the desktop app.

Sankalp’s experience teaches us that with reliable monitoring tools like the desktop app, we can maximize our earnings from the hourly projects we take in from our Freelancer.com clients. Every working hour is time well spent because we’ll get paid accordingly. No more unpaid working hours. Plus it’s very easy to download and use!

Download the desktop app now and start tracking your working hours. It’s available in Windows and Linux (and soon in Mac OS!) It’s FREE and easy to install.

5 Ways to Deal with Difficult Clients

ways-to-deal-with-difficult-clients-sept-2014

Handling client concerns is not always easy. As a freelancer, you will encounter different kinds of people with different work styles. There may be those who don’t know what they want, those who ask for the impossible, and those who keep changing their minds. You may even have to face last-minute requests, confusing project briefs, non-existent payments, and personality clashes, among other things.

A freelancer-client relationship is a delicate one. Here’s how to deal.

Know the boundaries. Everyone involved should be aware of all the details at the very start. Identify all limitations as well as any roadblocks you might experience during the course of the project. Prepare a roadmap or timeline to guide you and your clients. Have a contract in place if you can. This way, expectations are clear from the beginning, and when clients change their minds or request things outside of what you initially talked about, you can always go back to the document you both agreed on for reference.

Ask questions. Don’t shy away from requesting clarifications when something about the job confuses you. Project briefs aren’t always easy to understand, so ask the employer for an explanation instead of basing it all on guesswork.

Pick your battles. You won’t always get the nicest of clients. You might not think the same, or you might not even like each other. There are times when you’ll find that you and your clients don’t agree on certain issues. They might even be difficult for no reason. Whatever it is, you have to know when to pick your battles.

Weigh the pros and cons before you decide to talk to your client about a problem. Ask yourself if the issue affects your work so much that you have to address it, or if it’s something trivial that you can let go. Keep an open mind about personality clashes – you can’t please everyone and vice versa after all.

Keep an eye on the clock. Have an employer who is fond of making last-minute requests? Ever feel like the hours you’re paid are not enough for all the hours you’re putting in? Be mindful of your time. If the client doesn’t give you enough time to do your job, let them know and ask them if they can extend your hours. If they won’t, have them look at the project timeline and explain the delay that last-minute request is going to cause.

Remember to keep track of the time you spend working as well, especially when you’re billing by the hour. The Freelancer Desktop App will help both you and your client verify hours and collaborate more effectively without wasting time.

Watch over your earnings. Not getting paid for work done is a nightmare for any freelancer. If your pay is late or non-existent, follow up with your client. If the reason given for non-payment is that you didn’t provide the work that was agreed on, you may either ask for a chance to improve your work, or go back to your initial agreement and explain how you were faithful to it. Realistically-speaking, there will be instances when you will have to break up with a client for non-payment, or a client will have to break up with you for not meeting expectations.

It’s better to be safe than sorry. Request for a milestone payment before beginning work. It requires the employer to pay you for a milestone rather than waiting until everything is done to release payment for the entire project. It will give both of you a sense of security – the client will get to see your work and know what to expect from you, and you will know that the client isn’t shady and is willing to pay.

Client handling is part and parcel of being a freelancer. Tread carefully, always look before you leap, follow these tips, and you’ll be fine. 

Success Story: Civil Engineer Tries Hand at Translation and Succeeds

cs-ioannis-blog

The recession that struck Greece hard caused a surge in unemployment, especially for the youth under the age of 25. As a result, many have turned their sights overseas to earn a decent living, and for some, they shifted from regular employment to freelancing.

One of the many talented individuals affected was Ioannis Tsakiris, a 27-year-old civil engineer with a Master of Science degree in Antiseismic Design. “I am currently unemployed,” he said, “but freelancing has offered me a means to earn an income.”

Searching for the right online freelancing platform was easy for him. Following his friend’s recommendation and after reading positive reviews, he chose Freelancer.com, the world’s largest outsourcing and crowdsourcing marketplace. “The recommendation and reviews were very convincing and the use of Paypal was also a major factor for me in trusting the site more.”

But unlike other freelancers who choose to take gigs in line with their academic degree, Ioannis favored doing Greek to English translations compared to engineering-related projects. “I started translating a long time ago,” he explains. “I have proficiency in English from the University of Michigan. It is very common for youth my age in Greece to acquire this certification in their teens.”

His first translation project involved 15 pages of a financial website, each with 400 words. The client was very pleased that Ioannis was able to complete the job in two days as promised. Translations, Ioannis said, offer a greater amount of money for the number of hours worked and require very limited editing and changes.

To illustrate his point, he cited that the legal basic monthly salary in his country is 380€ for more than eight hours of work. “Even if my project was US$250 (or 180€), less than the basic salary, you have to take into account that I don’t have to pay for transportation; I am my own boss; I work whenever I want under my own rules (even in my pajamas); and to be honest, I work five hours a day max.”

Despite the prevailing unemployment conditions in Greece, Ioannis found the opportunity to navigate through the harsh economy by making use of his other skill through Freelancer.com. “Freelancer is the best choice to earn money, stay in your home country, and face work with a different perspective. It gives you real jobs where you have to compete with others, be confident about your skills, and be able to effectively deal with problems through communication.”
