Today, with my 4 years of experience, I will share with you how I earned money by freelancing work in these 4 years, and I will also tell you what mistakes you should ignore while doing freelancing projects.

What Is Freelancing And How Does It Work?

If I explain it to you in simple language, freelancing is a contract-based work that a person or a company gives to a freelancer.

In this, the freelancer is the person who completes that work. As an example – if you are a website designer and after creating a website, you have to host it and you do not know how this works, then you will hire a person who knows how to host a website on a server, whereas the person you hire, it will be freelance for you.

Since this work is only for a short time, we can also call it short-term hiring because we do not have to pay him the entire month’s salary, we just have to pay for hosting the website.

1. Create Your Portfolio

If you want to earn money as a freelance digital marketer, then, first of all, you will have to create a portfolio of your own which you can show to your clients “And I would advise you to initially work on a micro niche”. Creating a portfolio is important because it is the only thing that will make your client trust you.

2. Create a LinkedIn Profile

LinkedIn is a very beneficial platform for a beginner. Here you find people according to your skills from whom you can learn a lot. You have to remain active on this platform and post from time to time so that your engagement and new people connect with you. It is very important to make contacts for a freelance because these connections will provide you with freelancing work in future.

3. Join Freelancing Platform

Just as LinkedIn is a platform to connect people, similarly there are different platforms for freelancing projects which we call marketplaces. If you want to make your freelancing career successful, then you will have to join freelancing platforms like Fiverr, Upwork, etc. Here you can create your gig and sell your services.

4. Use Social Media

You can also use social media to take up freelancing projects. You have to upload regular content on social media related to your niche or topic so that your content will reach your target audience.

On one quote, if I post content related to website design on my social media and provide information, then the algorithm will automatically Send my content to those people who either need a website or are learning website design. Another advantage of publishing content is that your brand is created due to which your trust is created.

How Much Can You Earn As A Freelance Digital Marketer

For example, if you are providing freelancing SEO services in digital marketing, then you should have complete knowledge of the service you providing and communication skills because the client also knows what has to be done in that service, so if your client asks anything about the service, and if you get stuck, you can handle that situation through your communication skills.

Mistakes You Should Ignore While Doing Freelancing Projects

Now let’s talk about what mistakes I have made while doing freelancing projects in my digital marketing career of 4 years. I have made a lot of mistakes in my career so far because I have suffered a lot due to not having proper guidance from the beginning.

Initially, I had created only 10 IDs on Fiverr, but later I came to know that creating more IDs does not help, there should be only one ID and in that, too one should work on microniche. You always have to create only one account on the platform, and you have to work on only one niche, by doing this your identity gets built.
