Freelancers are self-employed people who provide services to multiple businesses or clients. They usually take that in the form of a small contract with defined scope of work and deliver it as per the requirements and mutually agreed terms and conditions.
As the name suggests, Freelancers are usually identified as independent individuals who tend to work on their own terms, timings, place and have a flexible lifestyle compared to a typical 9-5 job.
Some of the examples of Freelancers may include but are not limited to fields such as Graphics & Designing, Digital Marketing, Writing and Translation, Video and animation, Music and Audio, Programming & Web Development, Business Consulting, Coaching, etc.
The biggest challenge faced by freelancers apart from finding work is the inability to nurture a long term relationship with customers. Most of the work goes off as a one time transactional contract which is never renewed later.
This means now the freelancer is required to start searching for new clients again and try to get comfortable working in a new setup and try to build client confidence from scratch. This takes away a lot of precious time of the freelancer which could have been better spent doing things for which he is known for..
This usually happens when they do not have a standardised customer relationship management process and system in place.
