Seven Secrets of becoming a Successful Freelancer

Freelancers are heading towards  becoming the  regular jobholders  since the modern trends are evident that the  Employers are only hiring those Freelancers who deliver the  work on time and remain in constant contact  with employers to be in their good books . Many newbies  don't know the basics  of  freelance Marketplaces therefore  ,lose the  Projects due to minor mistakes  which cost them very heavy to sustain their  Project base . 

The  Following Seven secrets will help the Freelancers specially the Newbies to get grip or hold on the  Freelance jobs or  projects. The secrets are very important and considered the  key to be the most successful Freelancer over the Internet since  there are hundreds  of  Freelancers in various  categories  , but the only few freelancer pocket the perks of  freelance Marketplaces while others manage to earn few bucks as  part timers to buy some  goods  and coffee. 

1. Be Specific : Being specific to the category you feel that you are very good at and don't try meddle with multiple categories for which you have minimum or zero skills  to to do the jobs . If you apply for such projects which are relevant to your experience and expertise  , you may not succeed despite putting heart and  soul in the project but the  Employer is king , he may not accept the output  you have delivered through limited  Skills but the employer or buyer requires professionalism and the work should satisfy him as  per requirement.If you boast about yourself that you can do multiple things and when project was awarded to you and you delivered the Poorest standard , you are likely to get bad marks  from the buyers in form of  Feedback . As some prospective buyers consider the feedback of any freelancer a key to hire the freelancers from global freelancers pool .

2. Work Hours and Deadline: The most important point for the Freelancers to specify their working hour or weekly limit of maximum hours a freelancer could do any job . Since some  Buyers may require you to work full time as  Virtual Assistants (VA's)  or  Project Managers as  they remain busy in doing multiple things at a time . In such conditions , Be specific and clarify in the Cover letter or application if required by the buyer . You need not ignore the instructions of  buyer in job posting as  some buyers may decline the applications,  then and there ,if you ignored the instructions in cover letter or bidding statement . Deadline is the point when you have to deliver the finessed and proofread document to the buyer on time , if you miss deadline , ultimately , you will miss the train bound to your destination so be  on time and deliver one time  to be a successful Freelancer.In order deliver on time , start early and finish before the deadline as it will create positive points than delivering the date .

3.Be Honest and Polite  : Being honest and  Polite is the key for successful Freelancer since if  your brief the buyer about your  skills in honest way , then there are 100% chances that you may win the bid or be  awarded  the Project right away . The Politeness  while communication gives  the  impression that you are a polished  experienced and  Professional freelancers and ready to work for the project . The Polite  request to offer some test service will further establish you as successful freelancers and you will experiencing tons of Projects coming in your way . 

4. Communicate Regularly and Update the status : here are  several buyers and  each buyer gets   the Projects done  in their own way some remain close  contact with Freelancer to pass the instruction for  the service requested , where as ,some may contact you on the last day of the project for the output . But in both cases  updating the buyers  on daily basis is very necessary to be able to win their trust and inclination to hire you  for longer period .You must check the dashboard regularly to insure that you may have received  any instruction or message from the  buyer . Answer  Immediately  as being non-responsive freelancer creates the impression or  idea that you are not interested or  irresponsible Freelancer and may receive  negative feedback for  communication skills . Update the buyer about the project document ,if .required ,share the part you have completed  for buyers Review. 

5. Asking Questions for  Clearance : If you have  understood the requirements of the  buyer then it is  very nice  . If you feel that you have some confusion about the project document or having any missing information then you must ask from the buyer to get it cleared before starting to work on the Assignment. As as many questions as you could related to the project to get it cleared so that you may not have to revise  it when your buyer say that he wanted  some points in it and you have not incorporated the same in the document . So , In order to escape such inconveniences, you must insure that you have understood the details of the project and you are ready to start work the project . Such gestures produce  awesome results and the output is mostly accepted by the buyers if it was created  by keeping the instruction in mind .  

6.Proof Read for Errors , Bugs or Typo mistakes:  Before sending the documents to the buyer first  insure that the  document you have  created  in free  from typo , grammar or infatuation or Capitalization mistakes . If you are freelance designers or Programmers  , you must check it live whether the document has any programming errors or bugs  so that you may fix  them all and deliver an error free and perfect document to the buyers . sometimes , you buyer gets annoyed  to receive the document which may be full of  grammatical and TYPO errors  and  may not accept the document and may not pay you for the services delivered since your product was  not proofread and spellings checked or  bugs  fixed  .

7.Profile update and Portfolio and Custom Bid: The most important and the most rewarding point is that  you must have  an updated  portfolio on the  Freelance Marketplaces and you must mention those  skills  which you believe that you are good at and can display the example of  your  past work or  portfolio to make sure that you have  mentioned  only those  skills which have  already practiced and got positive  feedback . In profile you may give career goals , length of  experience and skills , guarantees  for standard and quality of the work [FA_Lite id="941"] and links to your Blog ,content or websites you have worked for .
Don't lie or boast too much ,just presenting you skills  to the buyers ,would be enough. Always create  custom cover letters or custom bid statement keeping in mind the instruction of the job post . If  you ignore the  instruction and use recycled or copy pasted cover letter for  all jobs , you will receive limited responses from the prospective buyers . In order  to get positive responses  , always create custom bid or proposal for the every new job you apply . Don't use  the same proposal or cover letter for multiple jobs . 

So, freelancers , we are summing this discussion up  with following advice that  if you keep  above points in your mind  to enter the lucrative and boundless  world  of  Freelance , I am certain that you will certainly rule the roost in freelance World  and I am afraid that seeing the great success  , you may give up you day job . but don't make such blunder until you find enough resources and  establish yourself as Professional  freelancer over the Internet .
