How to start freelancing as a student
Freelancing is a way to make money. There is a very big market where people earn money through freelancing and get work. People can easily earn money by selling their skills online, which is the most famous and trusted method of making money online.
Beginners do not know how to begin freelancing and where to find out about it. The first thing that students remember is that they will learn any skills because without skills they are not able to earn money. There are many skills that students learn, and then they will earn money. The most demanding skills are Graphic design, Digital marketing, Content writing, video editing, and other skills that new people need to acquire. In these skills, there are subcategories in every skill.
For example, in graphic design there are sub-categories is logo design, business card design, flyer design brochure design, and some other subcategories that new students learn.
I only share a few subcategories in graphic design, but there are 50+ subcategories across all skills that you can learn and earn money. If you learn only a few things in any skill, then you will start freelancing as a student.
People learn skills, and then they practice their work to become experts in a particular skill.
Each of the skills has potential and peoples earn thousands of dollars every month.
When students learn the skill then they will need a platform where they will sell their services. Millions of clients hire freelancers to complete their work on freelancing platforms.
There are freelancing sites such as Fiverr, Upwork, Freelancer, Guru, People per hour, and others where you can sell your services.
There are some websites where freelancers sell their services, but some sites require freelancers to share some portfolios before they will accept them. The freelancing site I recommend for students is Fiverr, and Freelancer. These two sites are the top picks for new freelancers since they provide their services easily.
A lot of people have one thing on their minds, and that is which site they want to join first. I suggest that you first register for Fiverr after you join Freelancer.
Why you will first join Fiverr?
I suggest you join this site first because this site is suitable for newly emerged people and these people sell their services free of cost. There are freelancers who write descriptions of their services, add images, write titles, and create packages. All of these features have been built into the gig system. As you add all these things to your gig, buyers visit your profile to order your services. Each new seller is allowed to create 7 gigs for free. In Fiverr there is very much crowd in big categories but if you find low competition keywords then you will get work. In big categories, there is a lot of competition, and it can be difficult for first-time sellers to get work.
Get work using Fiverr buyer request
There is a free opportunity on Fiverr where buyers post a request and the seller responds with a proposal. Sellers of all levels receive buyer requests every day to get fast work. There is an allowance for sellers to send 10 requests daily, so if they send 10 requests daily, they will easily find work.
If someone is skilled at what they do then they can earn money by providing services on the freelancer site.
When people have skills, they will also join other sites to earn more money. If someone has been an expert then they will get work also on other sites.
