Freelancing has come a long way, previously considered an unstable and risky career choice, many qualified and self-taught professionals have taken to freelancing for various reasons. Freelancing has gained popularity due to the flexibility and increased earning potential. There are various challenges to be faced in a full time working environment including being unable to choose which type of clients to work for.
Key areas of focus for freelancers are web development, web design, graphic design, data capturing, copywriting and digital marketing including technical seo (search engine optimization).
But is a freelancer what your business or brand needs? And what’s in it for you?
You have set goals for your company, but there are only so many hours in a day right? So how are you going to juggle everything besides deciding to give up sleeping for 3 weeks? You hire a freelancer. The rates of a freelancer are significantly lower than hiring a full time employee and you get to choose which work to outsource and what to do in-house.
You’ve just landed a big contract that comes with a deadline. Your staff are at capacity, you have no time to hire someone and you won’t need them after the project is done. What do you do? Hire a freelancer. Freelancers are great to assist with huge once off or short term projects as their are no long term contracts or promises of permanency. You can meet your deadlines with the help of a trustworthy Freelancer such as Freelance Fundi.

You can bypass all training sessions and HR nightmares by hiring an experienced freelancer to get the job done efficiently.
