I wanted to drive your attention toward a very important aspect of freelance business. Many beginners, as well as seasoned freelancers, overlook the importance of small jobs with small budgets. Small jobs may not seem significant, but as a freelancer, they can play a major role in the growth of your business.
I only realized the importance of small jobs having small paying numbers when they began to pay back handy for paying utility bills and paying 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.
Small jobs can provide a steady source of income, helping you maintain financial stability between larger projects. This can help reduce stress and give you peace of mind.
Small jobs can give you the opportunity to try new things and take on new challenges. They can help you develop new skills and explore new areas of your field.
In this attached image, I wanted to drive focus on the possibility of getting more business from a client that may start with a very small budget.
This particular example started with a 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 the client’s 100% satisfaction.
The way the whole process works is, when you satisfy your client with your first job for the 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.
