Though A Freelancer - Think You Are In A Company

Many people think that the Freelancer can work and deliver the job whenever you want. What they need to know is that if this is the case then the Clients will start to look for some other resource. Freelancing can leave you feeling stressed and dismayed many a times. If time and energy is not managed well then you as the Freelance person will soon be in a messy situation. Inspite of being your own boss you will be left with absolutely no time, Clients will be dissatisfied and complaining and you will loose out on your credibility.

Start with a little discipline. Having a good schedule will enable you to maintain a good and healthy working life:
  • Work when you are most likely to generate quick and good output. If you are the type who can generate quality work at midnight then do so. If you are type who is an early riser then do your work in the early mornings. Plan in the way that you are best able to work well. Having said that do not compromise on the delivery quality and delivery time.
  • When you work out of your home it does not mean that you will have your breakfast and bath later. What this means is that have a regular discipline. Do your exercises and other things just the way a regular working, employed person would do. Have food on time. Have your night sleep properly unless there is some rush job and crises of workload that needs to be tackled overnight.
  • Your work environment is critical. It is best to have a fixed work area. Everyone in the house should be aware of your area. It is important that you have your infrastructure well in place. This way you will know where to go to work, others will know not to mess up your work area, and you will be comfortable without being distracted.
  • In an corporate environment you will be recognized for good work. It is imperative that you enjoy and pat yourself on your back when you accomplish a good output. Spread the word maintaining ethics though.
  • Avoid burning yourself. This way you will only be doodling away instead of working. You will end up being in a continuous state of stress and hence will be very negative with other persons.
  • Make it clear to people at home and your near and dear ones that you are working from home. It is not less that any other type of working when you would have been employed. You work time is to be respected by yourself and other persons as well.
  • Just because you are working from home and you are your own boss it does not mean that you become a scattered brain. You need to have records of your conversations with Clients, maintain reporting system, have a status report going to your Clients and so on. Work and document the jobs as you would have done in a company. 
These are some of the pointers. Share your points as well.

Nurturing Your Clients

Acquiring new Clients is not an easy task for many Freelancers. After acquiring them it is not easy to nurture them. Nurturing existing Clients is very beneficial: at one hand you tend to retain them and the other hand they will recommend you. What is good is that they themselves will increase your scope of work and will give you more work.

Having a good professional relationship is one of the nest way to retain your existing Clients and get more business as well. In order to nurture them you need to keep in mind the below:
  • Do not be argumentative unnecessarily:Arguing will not get you anywhere. The sad part about arguments is that it gets into ego clashes.
  • Appreciate and accept people for who they are: People work towards their day to survival. Appreciating people is showing them that you recognize a certain attribute that is on them / within them. Appreciating does not mean flattery. Flattery gets you nowhere. A genuine good word will be remembered. You will be held in high esteem if you give genuine appreciation to people around you. Add to this it motivates them to work harder. 
  • Stop complaining: Hearing your complains is not what people want to do. If you do have a genuine complain then see to it that you share voice this along with a solution. There is no use just complaining.
