Have you ever considered working as a freelance web designer
just like I did or has the question-“Is web designing a good career?
” hit your mind?
Then you might want to check out the seven benefits of a freelance web design career.
1. Be your own boss.
Once you work freelance, you can choose when you would like to work and what projects to work on. While other employers require you to be available in certain schedule, you still have the freedom as you work for your own web design company and you are the boss.
2. Work wherever you want to.
The beauty of working freelance is the freedom to choose the place to work. You can work at home, in a café or in a resort, if you like. However, it is not recommended to work in public places as it can prevent you from accomplishing anything.
3. Flexible hours.
Work part time or full time- your choice. You can even negotiate with the employer if you are at your best at night, which is common in night owls, to work on those times. You can also have a day job while freelancing and it’s up to you how many hours you are willing to devote on the job.
4. Choose projects to work on.
Choose which projects you want to work on. Accept or reject a project according to your personal reasons and no one will question you. You can even choose not to work on a project just because it’s plain boring.
5. Dress code is nonexistent.
Work in your most comfortable clothes such as pyjamas, shorts, miniskirts, etc. No one else will see you anyway, unless you are attending a video conference. In-fact I’m in pyjamas most of the time while designing my blogs :)
6. Work on several projects simultaneously.
If you have the time and the ability to multi-task, then you can choose to work on several projects. This can be done with proper time management and discipline. Also, it can be best if you make sure the projects don’t mix up to avoid problems. Use separate folders for each project to ensure everything is where it should be.
7. Learn new skills.
Freelancing can give you the opportunity to study new skills without compromising your job. Many successful freelance designers strive to learn new skills and become updated with new technologies. Learn to use new software or expand your knowledge into other related fields.
While working as a freelance web designer can provide numerous benefits, it can also pose some problems in your career. Find out more about cons of freelancing to make sure you are making an informed decision. Once you are aware of the pros and cons of freelancing, you can then decide which path your career will take.
