Small Jobs Matter A Lot As A Freelancer, Here is Why

I wanted to drive your attention towards a very important aspect of freelance business. Many beginners, as well as seasoned freelancers, overlook the importance of small jobs with small budgets.

I only realized the importance of small jobs having small paying numbers when they began to payback handy for paying utility bills and pay for my car’s fuel expenses. You love that contribution because it’s easy and unexpected cash from your determined budget on a monthly basis.

This particular example started with the budget of only $20 and within 4 months, it escalated to over $1000. The additional cost was for added functionality to the existing functions, advanced development and above all, ensuring that all the work is done as per client 100% satisfaction.
The way the whole process works is, when you satisfy your client with your first job for agreed price and timeline, you are in a position to introduce more services to the same client and convince them that you are a perfect one-stop resource for all of their freelance work.
Friends, always remember that in freelance business your commitment to the client and your ability to communicate effectively spiced up with the never lasting efforts of making no stone unturned in satisfying the client matters a lot.
 Do not refuse any job online. Irrespective of the budget, tilt your focus towards improving the relationship with your client so that you can win their confidence and eventually more business in the future.

That is all you ever need to know about me but let me warn you, freelancing for me is a journey, certainly not a destination :)
