3 tips to help you start freelancing today

Want to freelance, but not sure where to start? Here are 3 tips to help you start freelancing today:

1. Know your strengths.

First, you’ll want to narrow down your top skill (maybe that is hand lettering or logos). What are you good at? It will be much easier for you to put a price on the skills you know you’re best at.

2. Determine your price.

Now that you have a skill you are confident in, what would you charge for it? We tend to devalue our work if we don’t plan our pricing ahead.

3. Get the word out!

You want to get paid to do what you love, right?! People need to know what you do. Start sharing your best work online. Tell others that you’re available for (insert your top skill here). And when they ask how much you charge, you’ll be ready with your answer!
