Please Whitelist This Site?

I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)

Please think about the value you get from this free site, and consider adding it to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on freelancingguide.net". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||freelancingguide.net^$document". Then just click OK.

Thanks for your understanding!

Planning and Managing Your Online Freelancing Business

Being a freelancer involves much more than just doing your freelance work: you are not just working, you are running a business. If you’ve never been a businessperson, getting set up can be something of a challenge; even if you are, a freelancing business may be different from what you’ve experienced before. There’s quite a bit to learn in order to get your freelancing career off the ground, and in this chapter of the Online Freelancing Guide, we’re going to look at exactly how to do it.

The place to begin with establishing your freelancing business is to identify the areas where you want to work; the first section deals with this, helping you analyze your skills and how they match market needs, and choose various work disciplines. Next, we’ll explore the resources and tools you’ll need to be successful, discussing issues such as ensuring you have a good work environment, time to get your work done, and computer hardware and software. The third section of this chapter extensively covers freelancing site profiles, helping you flesh out your “online resume” to increase your chances of receiving both project awars and valuable unsolicited project invitations. Finally, I conclude this chapter with a special section of key strategy tips for new freelances; this is like a summary and preview of the remaining four chapters of the guide, which will serve as a good “priming of the pump” as you get underway.
