The advent of technology allowing connections to anywhere at anytime has had a significant impact on how we work. Many people are no longer content to tie themselves to one employer and prefer to sell their skills in the global marketplace to buyers with whom they perceive a connection or to those whose requirements match their skills.
Every freelancer I’ve ever spoken with has usually asked me this one question, “How can I find better quality clients and win more freelance projects?”.
I’ve been working with Nabbesh.com, a freelance marketplace based in Dubai for nearly two years and believe I’ve found a formula which works almost every time for successful freelancers! Here are my top tips to make sure you drastically increase your chances of getting hired as a freelancer:
15 second summary: Nabbesh.com’s project managers will moderate all jobs to ensure clients have a current demand and a realistic budget versus scope of work. Then they will invite a few vetted freelancers that best match the client’s requirements to quote on the project. Once selected, you can message, collaborate, transfer files and request payments through Nabbesh.com’s new workspace! Moreover, our project managers will set the deposit amount to be paid in escrow depending on the project’s risk.
As business owners, managers or professionals, each one of us is continuously bombarded with messages all day long, eating up at our time – our most precious resource. Gone are the days were abundance meant strength as we usher in the days of curation and customization.
