Online Freelancing Styles and Trade-offs
Decisions, decisions as a freelancer there are so many decisions to make! In an earlier section of this introductory chapter, we explored perhaps the biggest decision of all: whether to become a freelancer or not. And in the section before this one, we examined different options for pursuing a freelancing career. But yes, there are still more alternatives to consider as you think about making online freelancing a part of your life.
Most of the issues that I cover in this section are really trade-offs: there are no options that are always superior, just ones with differing benefits and drawbacks. I’ll discuss the contrast between high quality and low price projects, which isn’t quite as easy a choice as it seems to some freelancers. I’ll also talk about the duration of projects, and how both short and long assignments have strengths and weaknesses. I examine the matter of work area focus; this again involves another trade-off, as both generalists and specialists have a place in the freelancing world. Finally, I describe market niches and discuss how they can be helpful to ensuring success in a competitive field.
