Pakistan is the 5th largest freelance market. As more and more unemployment grows, because of a shortage of jobs and unsatisfactory pay scale many are opting to earn online. Now a lot of people fail at freelancing because they think they can complete their masters degree and do freelancing or they can do their full time job AND freelance. Now, majority of the projects given to freelance writers or earners require A LOT OF TIME. As a freelance writer, I know that the articles require comprehensive research and it should be free from plagiarism while at the same time fulfill the requirements of the client. I can’t do research for 5 to 6 hours if I come back from ANOTHER full time job or after a college exam. Its FULL TIME work. If people will treat it like a hobby they will FAIL. Secondly, BE UNIQUE. Honestly there are a lot of plagiarism checkers and clients don’t tolerate copy paste work. They want QUALITY work. You can’t be lazy and think I will just get it over with and expect your client to appreciate it. Third, DO WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT. Seriously just don’t do things you can’t do. Don’t sign up for it. Know your strengths and weaknesses. Fourth, FIND THE RIGHT PLATFORM, do your research and find the right platform for yourself. Don’t sign up at places you know won’t help you. For example if you are into cooking videos MAKE A CHANNEL ON YOUTUBE. Don’t use unknown websites. To sum up: give freelancing all of your time, do unique and honest work, do what you are good at and do it at the right place.
