I also talk about the importance of having digital products in this series of different articles as well as different categories that talks about the different skill set on my Blogger.
You’re going to learn everything I’ve just talked about in detail but for now, let’s just answer the question. Why is freelancing so important in this time of the pandemic. What essentially is freelancing. Let’s just answer the question. What is freelancing and why you should do freelancing now to answer this question. A freelancer is the one who is self-employed works from the comfort of the couch at home.
It’s not hired by somebody to do a 9 to 5 job every single day Monday to Friday. Doesn’t get paid a monthly or a weekly salary and they work on their own work hours. Bet on the projects gets work from different contractors. Once they get the job done they get paid. It’s as simple as that they choose their own workouts they choose their own price and they choose who they work with there’s a lot of freedom.
Here there’s a stats that says that about 50 million plus americans are doing freelancing now this is a huge number especially when you talk about pandemic that has taken the wool by the storm ever since march 2020 why are so many people opting to choose freelancing is that because of freedom is that because of economic problems is that because of there are no jobs 9 to 5 fixed full-time jobs. That pay you insurance and that takes care of your health and that takes care of your fringe benefits is it because people think.
That they can actually make more money. When they work for themselves rather than working for somebody. What so ever the reason is the truth is a lot of people are choosing freelancing especially generation z. Now gen z are the people who are pretty much you know. They like freestyle work environment. They do not want people surrounding them. Who are bossy who you know who dictate them. Therefore gen z is more inclined towards freelancing now there’s zillion types of freelancing a freelancing means you’re self-employed.
How Many Types Of Freelance Marketplaces?
You could be a playback piano artist. You could be a guitarist. You could be a drummer. You could be a tutor. You could be an insurance guy. You could be anything but in this article. I’m gonna talk about digital freelancing. That’s related to the use of computers laptops and sometimes mobile phone as well. When it comes to digital freelancing there are two types of freelance marketplace.
One is a Traditional Freelance Marketplace. The other being Non-Traditional Freelance Marketplace. Not a traditional freelance marketplace clients come in they post a project that identifies a problem and freelancers. If that project matches their skill set they bid on the project just like the normal auction building.
In the case of non-traditional freelance marketplaces, there’s the only one called fiverr.com. Clients come in they do a window shopping of different gigs commonly known as services. And once they like a gig they place an order based on their price based on their thumbnail based on their description of the gig. Nonetheless, digital freelancing is taking a huge surge in imports and a lot of people are heading towards freelancing.
I would like to take a moment and introduce myself I’m a freelancer who has done over a million dollars in sales on one of the world’s largest freelance marketplace called guru.com. I’m from Pakistan and that’s where. I have made a lot of living but if you’re from Asia or any third world country. There’s a silver lining for you. That you can take away from my journey and that is you can make good freelance money. While you are still living in a third world country. This gives a lot of encouragement right.
That you can work from your home all you need is a decent internet connection all you need is a good computer and an ability to communicate with the clients. Which takes me to the very important point. The importance of communication. If you learn How to communicate? with the clients and that’s in english. Because english is an international business language. If you learn how to speak write in english as “Warren Buffett” says that if there’s one advice he could give to young college grads.
That would be work on their communication skills oral and written. Because that’s one skill that could help you go places in life. So learn communication skills and then answering the question. Why freelancing the time of pandemic.

A social media marketing agency may be a social media marketing freelancer. SEO guy or a company. That could help them get their website ranked for their business-related keywords on google and other search engines.
