top three amazing freelancing tips just for you let’s get started. today I’m going to about top three amazing freelancing tips just for you. so I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to go about freelancing what is freelancing?

how to start off and how to get your very first project especially if you’re a beginner in computer science or information technology so in this article I’m going to be giving you five amazing tips. I have followed throughout my freelancing time and this will surely help you especially if you’re a beginner especially if your ID or computer science student so let’s get started.

The First Tips.

the first tips is just starting man just start now hearing this you will be like wow than my evolved what amazing tips just start we didn’t know about this so just hear me out before you actually hit in the comments and write all those hits come and just hear me out let me explain what I mean by just start so when I say just start what I’m trying to say is even if you’re a big nerd it is not important that you are master of particular technology if you’re getting into it let’s take an example of web development even if you have very basics of web development let’s say you just

studied basics of HTML CSS in JavaScript and if you are wondering whether you are not ready enough whether you’re not perfect enough whether you are not mastered that particular technology or language then I’m really going to tell you one thing that if you’re going to be running behind perfection out of a beginners level then you’ll never start freelancing you’ll always be under confidence and thinking that okay I am not really sure I’m not really prepared and that thought will procrastinate you’re freelancing so what I’m trying to say is just start off with whatever knowledge you have and then you can build on top of it so to clear this out let me give you my example itself when I first started off my first project was a portfolio website for a fashion designer and I and my friend had approached him so he

came in via some contact and him wanted a portfolio website wherein he was going to be uploading this photoshoot images every week every month and it was a dynamic website and we did not know anything about dynamic websites so after our bachelor’s we had started off with a little bit of web development so we learned a little bit of HTML  little bit CSS JavaScript just by youtubing just by googling and we were confident enough that we can build a static portfolio website but we did not know how to go about a dynamic website wherein the user is going to put a lot of content every week right so what we did is we literally took that order we I guess charged him around 5,000 rupees money was not our primary criteria back then and what we did is we came home and we googled out and we came across this concept of WordPress so WordPress is a content management system and I’m not going to get into a lot of detail but basically what it does is it gives you a dynamic template wherein you can drag and drop pages drag and drop create dynamic stuff, okay so it’s built on top of PHP and we started learning PHP a little bit

because we did not have it in our curriculum and we got the basics we learned WordPress we literally took that order before even like being sure that whether we can do it or not you know we just did it and then after we learn WordPress we actually made that website we deployed it and it worked out pretty well so when I say just do it I literally mean you don’t have to be an expert in any kind of domain so this was just web development let’s say you’re  getting into software or Android app development or anything you know you don’t have to be an expert you just need to start.

Tips Number Two.

I’m gonna start and you’re all excited about this but you’re like okay so where do I get my first contact where do I get my first business where do I get my first freelance order right so the best way to start off is to start off from your contacts from your family from your friends from your mutual friends and long-distance family members who ever have a business now the reason why you should start off with your family and your friends is because the level of risk is low you know so when you are approaching a random person the risk of you making a

mistake in the project is very high you know the stakes are high so let’s say if you are relative or your uncle is having a business your uncle is a chartered accountant this is just an example let’s see he’s a chartered accountant and he has his own form you can approach him and you can tell him that you’re into web development and you want to develop a website for s form and that you will take so and so amount of time and probably want to charge or not I would not recommend that you charge for the first time maybe especially if he or she is your family member but then you can do it if you feel I am not saying that you should not charge but the stakes will be very less you know the risk will be very less because he or she is your family member or he or she is a friend right so even if we make a mistake

Tips Number Three

you need to team up you need to collaborate you need to partner up so now you are pumped up you are excited you are ready to make your first move into the freelancing world and you’ve also figured out that you’re going to best rating off with your contacts with your relatives or maybe your own parents business let’s say but now you are wondering okay you still lack that little bit of confidence so the best way to overcome that is to partner up with some of your friend who is like-minded so let’s say you want to get into web development and you want to

develop a website for your own family let’s say your dad or mom has some business and you want to develop a website for that let’s take an example to let’s say your mom or dad is a dentist or a doctor and he or she has her own clinic so you want to develop a website for that clinic you know so what you can do is you can approach your friend who is also into web development and you can tell me that hey man you know what I’m trying to develop this website let’s do it together and the biggest advantage of this is that you will have one more smart mind working on the project you know so when you have one more or more than one minds working on a project there is a lot of knowledge transfer as is happening between the two so let’s say you are stuck at some module maybe your friend can
