But I didn’t feel perfect that I can say ” Yes this is what I wanted” because either I have worked for any company or my own business, I didn’t feel like so.
I had been wondering whenever I told by newspaper ads, online job ads, money making sites or other ways that freelance online jobs give thousands in a day or week and you can earn in five figures or you can be rich over night with our online program just do this and that & blah blah…
I just want to say Yes I believe one thing from the above statement.
You can get a high income but not over night.
You have to use your Education, Skills, Experience and Ideas.
I give you guarantee, If you have patience, capability and believe that you can earn as much as you wish but you have to show and prove that you have competent to get what you want.
Now I am going to tell you how to start Freelance job ?
I want to say if you are not familiar with internet, you have to learn some basics about Internet operations. For this purpose I would strongly recommend youtube.com because you can find thousands of videos on this social websites that teach you how to use Internet.
First of all you need to have a Computer and a high speed Internet Connection.
You need to understand you niche because you can’t get any thing unless you know what you are skilled in? It is not difficult if you believe that
You are skilled or you think you are expert in any following category
Writing / Marketing / Sales / Graphic / Web / Programming / Office Automation / Finance / Admin / Technical / Legal / Academic / News etc.
for instance a if you are good to deal with documentation like writing articles, typing, spread sheets , letter, applications, presentation, filing, record keeping etc then you have to choose “Admin & support” category as you are familiar, skilled or expert in this niche.
Now you have an idea that what is Niche and why you need to understand your Niche. Remember always select the category you feel you are good to deal with.
I once again strongly advise you don’t take it easy if you think “You’ll try all the categories or some categories” and then decide what is better for you.
Remember your first attempt might be your last and you can lose all your focus and concentrations if you failed in first attempt.
For instance if you think you are good to go with “Admin & support” category but you select “Sales & marketing” category even for testing purpose, You will waist you time and when you are not getting jobs, You will be disappointed and that will be your end and you’ll lose a better income and You will be in the group of those people who say “Freelance is not for me”.
- You lose your Niche means You lose a better future !
