Freelancing: Freelance and outsourcing Jobs

Updated on August 22, 2011

With the emergency of internet technology today people are finding freelance jobs and employers are outsourcing freelancer to work for.Being a freelancer makes you save a lot of time that you could lost during commuting from office to home.

What are the benefits of freelance jobs?

1.       Set your own working time

Once a freelancer has secured a job, he or she is able to define their working hours as opposed to office work where you have to report and leave for home at a given time. Freelance jobs gives time flexibility and helps in time management

2. Variety of freelance jobs

The beauty with online freelance jobs is that you have many outsourcing companies to choose from, you have the ability to choose what types of jobs you want to perform. There are so many outsourcing companies that offer freelance jobs

3. You can freelancing anywhere

The advantages of freelance jobs are that you can work wherever you are in the world, with internet connectivity jobs are now available worldwide and you do not have to travel from your home to the office to seek for jobs. Freelance jobs has made it possible for freelancer to have their virtual office in the internet

4. Flexible payment methods

Outsourcing freelance companies have different methods of payments which a freelancer can choose from, and among the payments includes checks, debit card etc

Disadvantages of freelance jobs

As any other job, freelance jobs also have got their disadvantages, remember you are working for somebody you have never met, chances are that sometimes payments may not be guaranteed. A freelancer might complete a job only to be told that his work has been rejected, since you are paid after completion of your work, in the event that your work is not successful you will have either to repeat the work or forgo payment

There are so many companies that offers freelance jobs online, but I have selected the most trusted and successful companies that guarantees work and payments. The selected freelance companies offer free registration to start doing freelance jobs

oDesk

This is the most trusted freelance outsourcing companies on the internet, it has go guarantees jobs that one has to bid and once you are successful you will do the job and get paid, “Hire, manage, and pay a distributed work team as if everyone were in your office”. Odesk pays it’s freelancer by either check, or debit card

Elance

Is also one of the trusted freelance outsourcing companies found online, with many freelance jobs to choose from, “Hire, manage and pay experts to do your work?

Guru

      Hello Freelancers and Outsourcers. A newly launched website www.gigdollars.com takes internet business by casual businessmen to the next level. It is basically a website where people can share things that they have to offer for $5 to $100. It provides you the options of buying as well as selling gigs. The format of the website respects creativity and allows a person mint money depending on his level of knowledge and skill. It has eighteen defined categories for gigs. Anything that does not fit into these eighteen categories is still welcome on the website and is housed under an nineteenth ‘Miscellaneous’ tab. Creativity is the limit as to how much a person might earn on GigDollars. The gigs offered span the professional waters of graphic designing, recording, content services et al. However they also venture into previously unknown territories of creative gigs.

      The website design aims at simplicity and is user interactive. A person seeking customers for his service creates a gig and is notified whenever he receives an order. Following this, he/she finishes the order and delivers it within a set time frame. On the successful completion of gig, his/her account is credited with the gig money. Similarly, a buyer may choose a gig by browsing the categories. He/she then has to clear the payment and wait for the order to be delivered. If a buyer does not find the desired gig, he may type a few words about what he needs done in the ‘I’m looking for someone who will’ tab and have interested sellers approach him through GigDollars’ messaging system. Each client is asked to leave feedback and a rating at the end of each transaction which in turn can be used by the seller to attract customers and by buyers to gauge the seller’s credibility. Users also have the option of subscribing to the RSS feed of the website.

      Walking the extra mile, GigDollars is one of the few gig marketplaces that run on valid scripts and have ‘Contact us’ forms through which users can communicate with them. GigDollars is gradually but steadily carving a niche for itself in the gig market.

      Those who freelance have complete control over their finances. They are allowed to file their taxes in order to take full advantage of their deductions and business expenses. Those working under an employer may not claim the same tax credits unless the employer is a certain kind of umbrella company, or "portable employer of record" specifically designed for independent consultants and freelancers. The freedom to be involved in their finances from beginning to end may be extra work, but freelancers often avoid overpaying taxes.
