About This Course
How do you start freelancing?
There are many approaches to starting freelancing. Some people choose to do it on the side first while still working a full-time job, and then they slowly transition to full-time freelancing as they gain clients.
Getting started and established generally requires creating a personal website where you describe your services and skills and setting up social media accounts on sites like LinkedIn so that you can connect with businesses and clients. Setting up an account on Upwork is also an excellent way to attract clients.
What kind of freelance work can you do?
The answer to this question depends greatly on your background. Start by making a list of your skills and the types of work you’ve done before. Consider which items on the list you find most fulfilling and which ones are the most in-demand. At first, you might try seeking freelance work across the full spectrum of your skills and, over time, narrow your focus as you see which skills demand better pay and attract more clients.
Common freelance work includes software development, design, and creative work, writing, sales and marketing, administrative support, customer service, data science, analytics, engineering, legal work, and more.
