make money online graphic design

If you’re a graphic designer or want to be one, you should know that there’s more than one way to make money online.

In this article, I’ll give you a few suggestions on how to earn money doing what you love. Believe it or not, they are quite easy to get started.

My first job was in the graphic design industry. I worked as a lead designer at an advertising agency.

I really enjoyed designing things and creating graphics. But after a few months, I left the job because I didn’t feel happy working at that agency.

Back then I had no idea that people could earn money online. If I had the knowledge I have now, I would’ve made some money to provide for my family and myself.

Which Freelancing Site Is Best For Beginners?

which-freelance-website-is-best

Starting to freelance is a lot like starting a business.

First, you have to develop skills and build your portfolio. And then you have to figure out what kind of services you’re going to offer.

But, the key to getting more work and winning clients is to find the “right” market to sell your services.

Imagine Apple coming out with a new iPhone and going to a market dominated by Android phones to sell it. Would anyone want to buy it? Of course not.

It’s pretty much the same in freelancing. It’s important for a freelancer to find the “right market”, or in this case the right freelance site, to sell their services from the very first day to start a successful freelance career.

While most experts and more established freelancers may advise you against using freelance sites to offer services, I believe it’s the perfect way for a beginner to start freelancing.

There are both upsides and downsides to using freelance sites to sell services and find work. But, as long as you find the best freelance site that fits your category of work, it will make your life so much simpler. It’s how I started my freelance career as well.

In this post, I will help you find the right platform to offer your services as a beginning freelancer. Let’s begin, shall we?

How To Build Rapport With Freelance Clients: 7 Tips

how to build rapport with clients

Building rapport (or a close relationship) with clients is one of the most rewarding things you can do to pave the road towards a successful freelance career.

When you have a close professional relationship with your clients, it’s easier to work on projects, it’s easier to understand their needs, and it’s easier to deliver projects that meet their expectations.

More importantly, it helps you to get more work from the same client for long periods of time.

I’ve been working with this one client for over 5 years. One time, I actually tried to leave his company to work for a different company but he didn’t let me.

Because we have a close yet professional relationship. And he knows that kind of relationship takes a lot of work and time to develop with another freelancer.

That’s just one example of how incredibly rewarding it can be to have a good relationship with your clients. It’s a surefire way to get repeat clients too.

If you also want to have that kind of relationship with your clients, follow these tips and learn how to build rapport with clients.

Will Artificial Intelligence (AI) Replace Freelancers?

ai replace freelancers

Will artificial intelligence (AI) replace my job? What will we do when that happens?

It’s a question that most people are now starting to think about.

To be honest, I’ve often wondered about it too.

Just recently, I came across a software that writes articles using Artificial Intelligence (AI). That’s basically my job automated by a robot.

My first thought was that this software won’t be able to replace me. It will probably generate some robotic articles with words scraped from the Internet. And boy was I wrong.

This AI software is capable of generating high-quality articles. You only have to enter a few keyphrases and it generates an article as if it was written by a human.

As a full-time freelance writer, this was very concerning for me. And the scary part is that it’s not the only software I came across. There are many other AI software and platforms that are already replacing my job.
