How to Start Freelancing

To start freelancing as a beginner – at the very first stage, you need to learn some skills which has demand on marketplaces. Then you have to practice on demo projects to gain real experience on any specific subject.

When you will have knowledge, skills and some experience on a chosen subject – you have to join in Freelance Marketplaces – such as Fiverr, Upwork, Freelancer.com etc. to find job posts, apply on them and get hired.

The process is so simple as it is described above, but it takes a lot of patience to learn, implementation, and lots of practice to become job ready!

You might going to get success faster than others, but an important information you need to keep in mind – even if you have learned a skills so well, you might have to wait a long time to get your first order in reality!

In my connections of freelancers- I have seen many peoples who got their first job after trying over 6 months, and I also know many peoples who got their first job as a freelancer in the very first month of joining in freelance marketplaces.

So, the first element is YOUR PATIENCE!

How to Start Freelancing:

There are many working fields or job categories in freelancing you can go with.

You can start freelancing as a Web Developer, Graphic Designer, Video Editor, Digital Marketer, Software Engineer and many other options to choose from.

But I have been providing Virtual Assistant services to clients as a freelancer since 2012. I have been providing assistance with Data Entry, and Admin Support jobs to my clients through Upwork, Fiverr and on my private contracts mostly.

So here I can give you some getting started guideline as a Data Entry Operator…

To get started as a Freelance Data Entry service provider, at the very first stage- you need to have some knowledge and idea about Data Entry project types available on Freelance marketplaces.

You can visit Upwork’s job post section and find data entry job posts to see – what clients are looking for through their job postings?

Simply visit Upwork, chose “Jobs” in the search filter, type Data Entry and hit enter button from your keyboard!

Following quick video has the demonstration:

Not only on Upwork, you can follow the same process on Fiverr and Freelancer.com to get a good idea on data entry project types.

Please check out the shot video added below, you will learn the process to find – what are the data entry works peoples are providing as freelancer on Fiverr and making money!

After having knowledge and experience about the jobs, you should learn about the freelance marketplace rules, community guidelines, process to start working, process to get paid etc.

Then you have to maintain marketplace guidelines, join and find relevant jobs, then either apply on
the jobs or create gigs to showcase your skill, experience to clients considiration.

This way, client’s will start noticing and responding to your proposals on Upwork, or client’s will reach out to you with their needs through gigs on Fiverr – if all goes well with mutual agreement, they will hire you or place an order for you to complete the work.

This is how Freelancing works basically.

  23. The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.

    basis, this site is actually fastidious and the users are genuinely sharing good thoughts.
