  • Are freelancers in high demand?

    A growing number of businesses are working with freelancers. Freelance professionals offer businesses cost-effective, flexible support and allow them to recruit from a much wider talent pool. Businesses can focus on hiring based on skill and expertise, rather than geographical location.

    According to Payoneer’s 2023 Freelancer Insights Report, 46% of freelancers saw an increase in demand for their work. Fields with the most significant increase in demand included programming, marketing, project management, web and graphic design, and content writing.

  • How much do freelancers make?

    There are lots of different factors that impact how much you can earn as a freelancer (including your industry, location, years of experience, availability, and more).

    According to freelancermap’s Freelancer Study 2024 – a survey of 3,424 freelancers and self-employed individuals – the average worldwide hourly rate was €98 (around $105). The average yearly net profit was €60,508 (around $65,233).

  • Is freelancing better than working for some else?

    The answer is…it depends! It depends on your individual circumstances, preferences, and career goals. There are lots of great benefits to freelancing, but there are some drawbacks. It’s up to you to weigh up the pros and cons and decide what suits you best. Our blog post Is Freelancing Worth It? (The Pros and Cons) is a good place to start.

  • How can I go from a full-time job to freelancing?

    Starting any new career requires careful planning and preparation, and freelancing is no exception. We recommend considering the following steps:

    • Evaluate your skills and experience. What are you good at? What services could you offer potential clients?
    • Research freelance careers. What would you enjoy doing? Is there demand for your skills and services? Which industries and niches could you target?
    • Take additional training to fill any skills gaps. Are you missing any key skills? Does any of your knowledge need a refresh?
    • Develop a business plan. What are your goals? Who is your target market? How will you market your services? What is your budget?
    • Decide on your rates. What do freelancers with your skill and experience level usually charge?
    • Prepare financially. Do you have some money saved to cover expenses while you build up a consistent income?
    • Build a portfolio. How will you showcase your work to potential clients?
    • Network within your industry. How will you connect with other freelancers, industry professionals, and potential clients?
    • It can take time to build a successful freelance business, so we’d suggest freelancing on the side at first. This will allow you to test the waters and build your client base, without immediately having to worry about your income.

  • Do freelancers work from home?

    Many freelancers work from home. However, many also choose to work from cafés, in coworking spaces, or while traveling. One of the best things about freelancing is the flexibility – you can work from anywhere you like!

  • Do I need to take a course to learn freelancing?

    It isn’t essential to take a course to learn freelancing – but it can be very helpful! There are a wealth of freelancing resources out there: blog posts, articles, podcasts, books, forums, and more. As a beginner, sifting through so many resources – and determining which are valuable – can be overwhelming. A comprehensive freelancing course (like ours!) does the work for you, putting everything you need to know to get started in one place.

  • How does this freelancing course work?

    Becoming A Freelancer is made up of six comprehensive modules. Each module focuses on a different step in the process of starting a freelance business, from choosing your niche all the way through to finding your first client.

    As well as engaging written content and insightful case studies, the course comes with an 80-page freelance toolkit. In the toolkit, you’ll find useful exercises and business-building tools – templates, checklists, scripts, and more – to accompany every module.

    You can progress through the course at your own pace and return to completed modules for a refresher whenever you like.

    By the end of the course, you won’t just have learned what it takes to become a freelancer – you’ll have actually started working toward making it happen!
