Tips for Better Freelancing

Some tips for better freelancing from my experience

1. Focus

Focus on working in a niche and developing your skill sets, client base in that field. Don’t jump at every new technology or quote beyond your specializion.

Sometimes, it can be too tempting to over specialize too. Resist that. Always try to keep various doors open with a particular area of focus.

2. Invest

Invest on the right tools, learning and training resources. This can give an edge over others who hesitate to do that. At the same time, don’t go overboard shopping for these things. Especially, when you have all those Black friday deals :)

3. Be consistent

Clients don’t expect you to be a superman but they expect you to be consistent. So, it is your choice to set your standards and stick to them.

  1. Ravi some interesting tips thanks for it.

    In my experience, having self-confidence is another point. All these years I didn’t focus much on WordPress freelancing thinking that I can’t do stunning websites. But as the time went by I realized more people are happy with what we can do and it’s pretty much what they want.

    If someone so picky about the look and feel, then I’d pick up a theme from Elegant themes and set it up for them. BTW did you checkout the new Divi 2 form Elegant themes? Looking interesting.

      Yes, Mayu. There are all sorts of clients. Some with very basic needs. We can aways start small and move up the ladder.

      Elegant themes produces the most beautiful themes. But, I don’t prefer them as they are bulky. Coding and SEO friendliness is also not good. You will realize this when you try to do some customization with the theme beyond the bells and whistles they provided in the theme options.

      I prefer StudioPress themes though they have a steep learning curve.
