We all know college is expensive, and who couldn’t use a little extra cash? Instead of applying for a part-time job, why not turn your knowledge, talent or hobby into a source of income? Just create a profile and start getting paid as a freelancer.
- Make money on your own time
- Set your own hours
- Build your resume and portfolio
How to get started:
- Create an account
Create an account and upload information such as your resume and samples of past work, as well as your bank account info so you can get paid when your projects are complete.
- (Change “Post your service” to “Create a profile”)
Create a profile and list all of the skills you already have, such as writing, web design, graphic design, social media marketing and more. You can also list how much you want to charge for your service (by the hour, by the project, etc.).
- (Change “Communicate promptly” to “Respond to messages”)
Businesses will send you messages asking if you can take on their project. Make sure to respond to customer enquiries within a reasonable time. Good communication is a prerequisite for successful cooperation.
- Get paid
Once the project is completed to your client’s satisfaction, you’ll get paid quickly and securely. This is the best part!
- Build your reputation
Each project is a priority to your client, however small or large. So try to provide the best possible service regardless of the transaction value. If you experience any problems or delays, it is very important to communicate those quickly to the client. Managing expectations makes projects less stressful and more rewarding for everyone involved. And satisfied customers will certainly think of you for their future projects, as well as help other companies find your service.
