Do you want to learn how to make money freelancing online? If yes, then I got you! But promise me you will read this article to the end and not just that, you’d implement what you’d learn ASAP. Promise right?
Being a freelancer is such a beautiful experience, you can work at your own time and at your own pace. If you can actually just wake up one morning, pick up your laptop and zoom to the beach to work 😊😊😊
Or head over to Dubai and work from the tallest building, your choice! But just before you get excited, you need to have certain skills in order to excel as a freelancer. Your skills and the level of the skill depends on how much you are paid per freelance gig.
So what skills do you currently have at the moment?
1. Write content
2. Create videos
3. Design a website
4. Create landing pages
5. Produce amazing graphics
6. Visualize Data
If you don’t have any skill, you can simply go to Youtube, search for the skill you’d love to acquire, watch the videos and start implementing it by listing your services on the appropriate platforms where you can get seen.
After you have perfected your skill, the next step is to promote your skill. People need to know that you can do what you have learned. If nobody knows about your skill, then you will never know how to make money freelancing online. You can’t sell what they don’t see!

Visit any of the websites above, create a wonderful profile. I’d advice that you take a look at other people’s profile in your niche; it would be nice if you focus on those who have 4-5 stars. Model your profile after theirs, I’m not asking you to be a “Copy Cat”
Then list your services by using the appropriate keywords, description, title etc. Make sure your post stands out! There are thousands of people listing their services on the same website, why should your prospective customer opt in for your service instead of another?
B. If you don’t want to go through that route, you can simply create your own website where you’d list your services and send targeted traffic to it. You can easily get targeted traffic through Facebook, Google Ads etc.
Now that you know how to make money freelancing online, what next should you do? Follow the instructions above, create your profile and list your gigs on the freelance websites listed above or set up your own website.
