Freelancing is here to stay. It has become a major force within the economy to reckon with. In the US alone, freelancers contributed $1.2 trillion dollars to the U.S. economy in annual earnings in 2019, indicating an upward tendency. Today 36% of the total US workforce conducts freelance work in various industries and disciplines. The COVID-19 pandemic has helped to accelerate the shift to freelancing all over the world as it offers consistency and new career opportunities.
From the very beginning, we have embraced the freelancing culture. Some of the Mazzuro Team have several years of experience working as freelancers. Others have been on the buyer side to outsource some of their work to highly experienced freelancers. Mazzuro has involved various freelancers to help build the platform and has gained a lot of experience in the freelancing business.
We would like to pass on to you the Top 4 essentials you have to take into consideration as a freelancer if you want to be consistently successful and create a lasting impression on your customers:
Post a service offer in accordance with your skills. Be as accurate as possible so your customers know exactly what they are getting for the money they are paying.
Be on time
Respond to customer enquiries as well as requests for custom offers within a reasonable time. Good communication is a prerequisite for successful cooperation.
Take all of your customers seriously. Provide the best possible service regardless of the transaction value. Satisfied customers will recommend you to their friends.
Treat your customers the way you would like to be treated. Be thankful of orders made. Give your customers the genuine feeling that they are unique and special.
