5 Steps to Launch Your Freelance Marketing Career: Freelancing tend to be complex if you are someone who does not have the right orientation on how it works, this is because a lot of people are already into freelancing making it very hard for you who knows not much about freelancing earn nothing at all.

Well if you are just someone who took a leap of faith into freelancing and knows nothing about it in this article we would be going over all that should be known.

1. Weigh The Pros And Cons

What are your expectations, what do you think are your benefits and your downside in freelancing.

This is something which you have to make a list of and know your chances of earning in freelancing.

Here are some pros and cons when it comes freelancing.

Pros of Freelance Marketing

The fact that you are your own boss is a huge attraction for those considering freelancing.

An excellent work-life balance may result from it. You have the freedom to select your working hours, location, and workload.

It's also pretty thrilling. You'll work on a variety of projects for different clients, so your job will never get boring.

Cons of Freelance Marketing

An extremely competitive industry is freelancing marketing.

Thousands of other independent contractors will be vying for the same projects.

Trying to get your first clients can make this feel very intimidating.

Additionally, your income will change from month to month.

When you're doing well, you might have some months where you make thousands of dollars, while other months might only be a few hundred.

If you have trouble accepting a variable income, freelancing may not be the best option for you.

2. Define Your Services

The services you provide will depend on your specializations and the digital marketing skills you possess.

To determine your strong points, look at your professional experience. The following groups typically contain freelance marketing services.

• Search Engine Marketing (SEM)

• Social Media Marketing

• Content Marketing

•Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

3. Choose Your Marketing Niche

If you try to find clients in a variety of industries while claiming to be an expert in all fields, you will face an uphill battle.

It's crucial that you maintain your focus and identify your own specific marketing niche.

Landing clients will be much easier if you are more specialized in a particular niche.

You can approach clients for whom you have pertinent experience that complements their business model.

The first step in identifying your niche is to decide which services you want to provide.

You can create your own freelance marketing niche in a few other ways.

One strategy is to concentrate on specific business entities. Let's say you work as a content marketer as an example.

By managing content only for cafes and restaurants, you can concentrate your efforts.

This will demonstrate your expertise in this field, and other food-related businesses will be clamoring to work with you.

4. Set Your Price

One of the more challenging aspects of becoming a freelance marketer may be this.

If you've never worked for yourself, how on earth do you know what to charge?

Make a quick Google search to find out what other freelance marketers may be charging in order to establish a baseline.

To get a good idea, browse forums or take a look at freelance websites like Upwork.

By comparing your previous marketing salary, you can also determine an appropriate number.

Use your hourly rate as a starting point by figuring out what it was. Make sure your prices are not lower than this amount.

The method of charging clients is the next thing you must decide. Hourly rates, fixed project rates, or a retainer are your three options.

Hourly rates should be obvious. For each hour you spend on a client's project, you bill them.

With a fixed project price, your clients will give you a single payment for the entire undertaking.

As a result, you will be compensated for the value you add rather than the quantity of time you put in.

5. Find Your First Clients

You can find your first freelance project by networking and using freelance websites.

Once your freelance business is up and running and more established, you can then begin to get referral business.

The simplest way to find new clients may be through freelance websites.

You'll have a single location to look for work because businesses will post their projects there.

You can apply for countless jobs, but there may be stiff competition.

In addition to charging membership fees, many freelance websites may also take a percentage of the money you earn from the work you complete.
