• Content writing So how do you get started as a freelancer? 1. Join freelancing communities. Post your profile and resume to freelance job boards like Elance, Amazon Mechanical Turk and Guru.com. Remember to include specialties in your profile so that freelance employers can find you for specific projects. This strategy tends to yield better results for freelancers. 2. Put yourself out there. Though freelance employers are scouring the boards for freelancers who fit their needs, it’s important that you do the same. Look through potential job opportunities, and virtually introduce yourself as the perfect candidate for the job. 3. Get organized. Unlike a typical job, freelancing requires you to handle all of the paperwork on the back end. Stay on top of your projects and clock your working hours with calendars like Klok or Harvest. Utilize sites like BillMyClients.com to track and receive payments, and if the ball is in your court to determine how much a job should cost your freelance employer, try the FreelanceSwitch.com Rates Calculator.
