Start with Choosing A Service
When thing about your freelancing or work from home job, you need to pick a service to specialize in. Look for the opportunity to offer your service that will give value to other people and make their lives simpler.
I usually encourage people to pick a skill or hobby that they have to monetize. So if you live to teach, you can offer tutorial services. If you love writing, consider freelance writing.
If you like managing social media, you might try to be a virtual assistant or a social media manager. If you are creative and crafty, consider setting up an Etsy shop.
Create & Customize Your Own Platform
When running your own company from home, you need to have a platform to promote your product and services in the way that you want them.
Considering you won’t rely on any company’s website or network, the best way is to create your own. If you are serious about taking your business idea, I recommend you start a website or a blog. This will support you to prove yourself as a specialist in your niche.
As a freelancer and doing a home job, make sure to create a “hire me” page on your site. This strategy will help your possible clients know what services you are offering and grab your contact details.
Go to social media and update your LinkedIn profile to create a social media presence.
If you think that a website is unnecessary, just set up an online portfolio to showcase your work and share your referrals. You can grab some reviews here too.
Also, get on social media if you haven’t already and update your LinkedIn profile.
People who are interested in hiring you for a job or those who want to buy from you can check those out. This will give them a good look online to know more, which will provide you with a professional social media presence.
