When freelancers solve their first hurdle of a freelance work, they opt for the new. The biggest problem for a newbie freelancer is that they couldn’t get enough opportunities from clients. Some people opt for solving their problems in their jobs and some start to feel down which is the biggest hurdle formed by them. I’ve also gone through these freelance work problems but I never give up but seek help from professionals and I proceeded to the path of the success.
When problem persists, most of the freelancers think that:
- My first freelance work was just a luck!
- I cannot proceed in this situation
- I should switch back to small jobs
- I could insist for money from clients
- Maximum applying for the freelance work should do the trick
These all questions arises and could lead a freelancer and a freelance work to a void. To solve the problems, a universal rule of step by step solution always creates an easy way to analyze the lacking and how to solve them.
We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. ~ Albert Einstein
To solve a problem, Find an easiest way or should I say an opposite solution of a problem like If you have destroyed your mouse, you will never destroy it again to make it but you will give to the repairer man to make it (opposite of destroy). This theory applies on every thing including your freelance work too.
Similarly, If I am not getting freelance work like other people who are getting more jobs than me. Then I should consult them (opposite of envy/jealous).
Following are some unique things which makes successful freelancers and successful freelance work.
Successful freelance work always convey their self clearly, positively and doubt free introduction. Take your time while writing a cover letter / Introduction. Small intro never impresses anyone but larger texts shows commitment and the professionalism of the freelancer and its work. Popular Freelancers always recreate their introduction and avoid same old introduction because not every freelance work is demanding the same thing from you.
- Start with a soft introduction with your name, title and comments on the job posting/freelance work or description.
- Design a paragraph reflecting your present, past and future experience and expertise (Not to be too long or too short)
- Conclude with the text reflecting your consistency, attitude, hopes and target for a expected freelance work.
- Attach or give links to your best related work as a portfolio
