As I mentioned in my last post in the category of Freelancing 'Freelancer A Guide To', that I would make more posts on the same topic, so here I am with it, the second entry in the same category. In my city, I found that there were many freelancers at work, I collected their contacts and had contacted with them, their I asked them to point out main points for what makes a good freelancers, I got many replies and I wrote down them on my notebook and with my new Gold Pen (which I recently bought through Goldmine International along with their membership that GMI Classic Gold Pen), and telling you for first time that I always use to have Notebook and Pen along with me. Lets leave it, coming to the point the things I wrote and then edited and made them read able easily, has been posted below:-
A LITTLE INTRODUCTION TO TOPIC TITLE
As a Freelance worker, contrary to the common belief, success is no easy feat. What differentiates a successful freelancer from an ''often unsuccessful looking for work'' freelancer is not just personality traits and work skills, but also a sharp business acumen, common sense, and a disciplined work strategy. Following are a few best activities for successful freelancers.
- KNOW THE CLIENT
- CLEAR AND COMPLETE DOCUMENTS BE ENSURED
Documents related to the project, and those related to the client. While project related documents vary from project to project, bear in mind that they should ideally cover every detail of the project, right from the requirement specifications document, project proposal, change request forms, to the invoices that specify the payment schedule. On the other hand, the project contract should clearly specify the project duration, working hours and other terms and conditions. Accurate logging of the completed work hours and should always be maintained. A good freelancer prefers the temporary tediousness of detailed documentation over the eventual disasters that result due to lack of documentation.
- PROFESSIONAL LEGAL SERVICES
- MAINTAIN SOCIAL PROOFS
- DO NOT OVER COMMITTED
I myself is not an Entrepreneur or a Freelancer but I can understand the situation when any one has a loads of work on him/her. Many times I myself use to take multiple tasks at once just getting over excited which causes me to perform nothing, so be careful to take the projects and sign the number of contracts.
- MANAGING GOOD RELATIONS WITH CLIENTS
- STAY AT YOUR OWN PROFESSION
- BE FLEXIBLE
- NETWORK SENSIBLY
- PAYMENT/MONEY MATTERS
Freelancing is a well thought out process, and should be taken seriously If what you are looking for is a steady source of income, rather than sporadic spurts of getting lucky. At the end of the day, successful freelancing requires the same amount of dedication, talent and structuring as any other permanent job.
