Advantages of joining groups on freelancer sites

Updated on December 26, 2013

Freelancing - Increasing your chances of getting hired part 2

One of the ways to increase your chances of getting hired is to Join Groups On freelancer sites. You can also create one on your own. Here are some few benefits you can have when you join or create a group on freelancer sites.

The top freelancers or mostly have already gained the trust of many clients. So when there are any new jobs or contract from these clients, they are mostly the first people to know before the client puts the job on the freelancer site. The clients actually would first inform these trusted freelancers about the new job if they could recommend for them another trusted freelancer - if the current contract is different from what their job expertise. When you join groups with other experienced freelancers, they are able to recommend you or connect you to jobs that are related more to your expertise than theirs. They would either pass on these jobs to you or even take the jobs and contract you to do it.

Sometimes these top freelancers also get more and big contracts and they may not have enough time to finish everything and submit to their clients in time. At the same time, they wouldn't want to lose their clients. What they usually do is give or pass on the smaller contracts to other freelancers whose job expertise is related to their own and that they trust can do the job and pay them to do it. You can connect with these top freelancers on groups and increase your chances of getting hired. No matter how smaller the contract is or how small money is, just focus on building your CV and profile reviews section with positive comments. Soon you will start getting bigger contracts from potential clients that will come to read your profiles and reviews.

When joining a group on a freelancer site, always join the one that relates to your own expertise. If you are a writer seeking for writing contracts, it's best if you join a group of skilled writers and bloggers from UK. A British freelance writer is more likely to get writing jobs whiles Indians are most likely to get IT contracts. To get contracts related to your expertise, it's better to join or form a group that is recognized for that job. You will not just get subcontracts from these groups but you could get some ideas too from them. Soon you will learn some few things that make them very good in their area of experience and add them to yours.
If you can't find any group to join, you could get together with other tight experts, form a group on your own and take contracts together .The group members should know themselves really well - each other's ability and skills. You would be helping each other to work on contracts. You could bid for contracts together or get big jobs together. Some freelancers on your group could be contacted directly by their clients to recommend experts for them on a particular project. When your group members know your skills they could pass on to you projects that they might not be able to do because they maybe working on another project.

Increasing or continuing to improve your working skills is one of the many ways you can get more contracts. You should seek to learn as you work. You can get to share ideas with freelancers in your group. Share with them the latest information or updates related to your work, that you have read from books and the internet about your work. Share ideas and latest developments within your industry and new stuff from them that relates to your work- You will be able to keep up with time and and experiment with new ideas that you can fuse into your work and get more contracts .
