Freelance Stories: What’s your experience with being a freelancer?

Rewards

No YUP/tokens awarded

Hello Crowdholders, 

 

Today's task we would like to hear the perspective of being in the “shoes” of a freelancer. Being a freelancer is no easy task. You become your own boss and must grind to find intriguing and qualified work to put food on your table. As the millennial generation is moving toward an individualistic approach to work, more and more are becoming entrepreneurs and freelancers.  

 

So let's keep it short. We need help to identify “pain points” but also “success stories” we can use while we are building our system. Use cases are an important part of R&D when building a product, therefore this will be very useful for us. 

 

Participation rules: 

 

Important Rule: In order to receive the full reward from your comment on CH, you must copy and paste your comment on our Telegram chat. This will help us show some engagement, and improve interest in our community, while we collect research. Don't forget to place your @username (Telegram handle) in the CH comment, for us to identify you posted on our Telegram chat.

 

Our Questions:

 

  1. If you have done freelance work, did you have a freelance job that went wrong? Aka a “bad experience.” For example, you did the work but wasn’t paid? There was a lack of communication between you and the hiree? The freelance hiring process was too long and tedious?

 

        2. What about a positive experience? Did you encounter any unique system that made it easy and made the                     experience rewarding?

 

We look forward to your feedback! And don’t forget to also post your comment to our Telegram chat.

 

Thanks!

yes , freelance is not an easy job, freelance is like a real job except  you have the freedom of time 

You need particular skill to earn via freelance, and you should work more hard , and you should need to learn constantly to expertise in that field :)

I'm more experience and know the circulation in this Blockchain Industry.

I'll do freelance work it's kinda hard for me to such do a work like that you can face conflict situation on your client but sometimes it's enjoy, you can earn cash for your hardwork as a freelance to do some job.

Yeah I experience some positive experience like my client gave me a positive feedback and they increase my payment for making my job done at a time.

During the time i spent being an active freelancer, i was kinda really working on my own i.e sorting for jobs locally, and since most of the jobs i got were from persons i knew complications usually arise sometimes. mainly in the ares of paymnet and also job completion.

I have found myself sometimes in a position whereby the client comes after a week of the propose payment and collection date aand starts making some correction to his work this sometimes was usually hard to take because i got other thngs to do at that time.

Sometimes persons usually come begging to get there job done without paying promising to pay later which sometmes dont usually end in a good way, so for me i try my best to avoid all form of situation that will lead to an unfavorable end or bad business reputaion.

It is always good to end all contract well before time to allow time for correction of errors.

Freelancing in and of itself sounds great! If you can find good paying gigs. I've worked as a freelance photographer, content writer, filmmaker and copywriter. When those gigs paid well- I was in "hog heaven". Once I was hired by a new paper women to take photos while she was on assignment in India researching arranged marriages. How wonderful it was to get paid travel, room and board plus expenses! The per diem pay was outstanding. Shoot I still get some cash from time to time when the publication re-uses the pictures I took for her. That was a great freelancer experience, sadly, that wasn't the norm for my experiences as a freelance worker. Seems most of the time I'm underpaid and undervalued. Too many jobs like this can take the drive out of a person.

Mostly there is so much competition for these freelance jobs online that it makes it hard to get enough jobs or experience under your belt to build the reputation you'll need to succeed in the freelance market. If there could be more competitions & tasks, like presented here, when it comes to freelance work and workers, then maybe a vehicle could be created which will allow freelance workers to win jobs, money, experience and prestige? while building their freelance portfolios. 

Seems all work might one day become freelance.

I will not say that I have worked as a professional freelancer before, but I have got my self into that position once or twice, I have gotten some jobs to do mostly in areas of writing terms papers and report in school, was really a good experience for me because I really found myself learning a lot.

But the big issues usually comes sometimes when it is time to pay up for the job and for other very nonchalant ones, they usually take their time to come by and check out the work for corrections and collection so you end up with a lot of complected jobs, some has been paid for while others have not been paid for. Because of this issue, I started doing a pay before service system where they pay for their job, at least more than half before I embark on the job so with this more persons became serious with their order jobs.

Some key factor here in this system include>>>

  • Mutual trust.
  • Mutual Understand.
  • legit payment.

And also for the freelancer never accepts a job that you cannot do or that is bigger than your ability, so as not to feel sorry later and also not to waste time on jobs order.

I have been doing freelance because I didn't have a job and want to apply the knowledge I have acquired from school. I was more concerned about getting the experience than the money. Some paid, others didn't. But its all part of the development process.

I have got to meet lot of influential people like CEOs and directors. Learned a lot from them. I hope these connections land me a job soon.

I am a Mechanical Engineer with expertise in power and Mecha-tronics. An Entrepreneur

I am currently working part-time as a freelancer accompanied by my main job. I will say that I have had a lot of good and bad experiences and also challenging experiences.

The major challenge I usually have in terms of the bad experiences is when it comes to job completion and payment, after doing a job according to the specification of the client, there is usually a lot of requested changes by the client after the job is done and most times the client don't pay for the extra work done or time spent in the extra changes that were required.

But the best part about being a freelancer is that you are always challenged and thus pushed to increase your skills, which i think will make it easier to settle and get a better position when you finally get a job.

I am a web and video editor for 20 years...I really love what I do

I am a Freelance for quite a while. First I tried to get jobs at twago.com but it was a waste of money. When I got my first call from Twago.com the guy told me, that I have to get a business package because who has one always will be preferred. For me, Twago was too expensive so I made an account at freelancer.com. I had to write about 100 bids for different projects until I finally got a great job to do. The first job I did was luvya.de, a whole shop system with bidding function. For this task, I got 4000€ but it was like being bound because I wanted to get a good review. I did much more than actually was written in the job description. I got a couple of more jobs at freelancer.com but the last costumer I had was a pain in the ass. He wanted things that didn´t work the way the customer thought they could, I tried to explain it to the customer but because he had no knowledge about how a web portal works on the backend. I told him that I am the expert and this is the reason why he hired me, so he should let me build it the way it would work and not the way he thinks it should work. 
But the badest thing happened to me at freelancer.com was, when I accepted a job for 3k and freelancer.com took 300€ right the minute I accepted without seeing a cent from the client. Next day the client canceled the job but freelancer.com never gave me back the 300€ commission which they charged me for this job.
It is nice if you can work from home but you have to be behind jobs, write bids every day and hope the best. To be honest I prefer to get a new job from a referral from my clients.
Today I am still struggling but not because I have no job to do, no because my best friend faked bills with my signature and I have to pay 146000€ taxes for an income I never had.  
A good freelancer portal for me would be, where the freelancer comes first and not the clients who need tasks to be done. It should not be like restricting the conversation only to the portal because this never worked for me.

  1. If you have done freelance work, did you have a freelance job that went wrong? Aka a “bad experience.”

I am on freelancer.com but it is really hard to start there as i tried allot but hardly got any response becuase my scoring points on the site is 0. so since then i hardly visit the site.

 

        2. What about a positive experience?

I dont have any experience but yeah i know one of my friend who have a good experince and he is working as well as work as a freelancer so you can say that freelancing job are like a passive income for him whenever he need some extra cash he look for the job.

I did freelance for a short time. Mostly writing web content, and I didn't have a particularly positive experience. I'm a moderately competent writer, but the main jobs I found paid next to nothing. For the fees some clients were offering, I never felt too motivated to do much "above and beyond" work. I found freelance writing to be highly competitive, too.

An example of a negative experience: I was once hired to write some promotional material for a "health food" product's conference. When I started asking questions about the research on their claims they stopped contacting me. I was probably better off without that gig 😂

I did have one positive experience that I wish I would've stuck with longer. I edited industry overview articles for some web business encyclopedia-type thing. The client wanted to take articles that were national in scope to global. The articles were written in XML, so I had to combine some coding skills with research skills to expand the scope while keeping them formatted correctly.

That was a good experience for two reasons: One, the client had clear expectations, instructions, and communication skills. Two, it paid well enough that I could have lived off it for a while. I had too many other projects in the works, so I stopped after only a few articles. Looking back, I wish I would've continued for a while longer, but I'm in a better place professionally now, anyway.

If I could suggest anything for cryptotask it would be make freelancers work worth their time. It's a lousy thing to put work into something and only receive enough to buy a coffee. I also suggest clear expectations and guidance on the work. Even a professional freelancer cannot read a client's mind. Help the freelancer know exactly what's desired and pay them fairly for their time so they can deliver high quality work.

I tried to do some freelance jobs on the website freelancer.com, but I still couldn't agree on any.

I will keep trying, as it seems like a good opportunity to generate an extra income and manage your time to do so.

Hello. I spent well over a decade as a freelancer. I appreciated the break from my regular work as a writer. It was not a break from writing, rather a break from my own work. I freelanced writing sales copy, advertising scripts for tv and radio, editing for others, ghostwriting, and lots of others.

There were a few bad experiences but I refused to let them happen more than once. Not being paid at the end of a project was always a major concren and did happen once to me. Luckily, I knew where they were intending on using the copy and could also find it if used elsewhere. The threat of legal action if my work was used proved to be enough to get them to pay for the project. I have also had clients decide to change the direction of the project after many days worth of work had been done. I happily agreed to shift the focus but their idea was that the past days had not existed and this was the start. With many, many hours put into the project , I was not ok with jjst starting new for the same price I had already quoted.

Most of my headaches were with the freelancing sites more than with clients. The sites would charged for listing a project, accepting a project (or buy X amount of bids per month), and for a percentage of what the project total cost was. This lead to a $100 project to be paid out around $72 for the provider and the client paying over the $100 they had budgeted.

Many sites instituted safety protocols. Escrow was one of the easiest for both the provider and the client. With a project bid, I would stipulate how much would be placed into escrow for me to begin (10-33% was my preferred) and as milestones were reached, more was added to the escrow. This allowed me to see I was going to be paid and for the milestones to be hit and my progressed shared with the client so they knew work was being done. It was released at the end of the project if completed as agreed or given back to the client if a freelancer did not complete the work. 

I took the entire experience as a positive. it helped me honed my time management skills, professionalism, and provide clients with exception copy.

I have looked for assignments on freelance web sites but have never done any. Either I wasn't qualified or the pay was low. I have, however, been self employed. Reputation is key. Word of mouth goes a long way. I find that doing a good job and being dependable have really helped my success.

My negative experience: The customer wanted me to make endless changes to the product, and in the end wanted their money back. It wewe all the way to hiring corrupt police officers to roast me. In the end of the day, the case didn't end up in the court. The mistake I made was that I didn't deliver formally through a company with a standard contract and a tax invoice.

 

My positive experience: I were able to sell a service for administration through the same customer. The improvement that I could have made was referring the administrator duty to a dedicated team.

1. When I first start to work a freelance, I will have bad experience as need to work as promoter and my superior scold me as I am not passionate and engaging enough to approach customer to sell and promote a product. She said me cannot work in fast pace. We also get paid in delay for one week and everyone chase the person. 

 

2. But once I get used to it then I can work in fast pace environment and also learn new friends and we also chit chat while working as we are young teenager at that time :) After last day work we also have photo formation :).

  1. When I started as freelancer I had some troubles managing myself and my costumers and the worst experience was a lack of communication with one costumer.
  2. Yes I did, after understaning my obligation as a service provider and learn how to put myself in a complete proffesional shade most of these problems were solved

My experience of freelance work has generally been quite bad. The first, big thing that puts me off is the payment times. The average time it takes to get paid, even for simple tasks like twitter shares seems to be around 90 days. Thats 3 MONTHS! i work in an industry where we buy and sell all the time and if i were to try and select a supplier for any kind of goods and then told them i wouldnt pay them for 3 months i think they probably wouldnt do business with me. 30 days seems to me to be ample time to pay. If we want to try and grow the freelancing/gigging economy we seriously need to review the model of how we treat the individuals who complete the work. It seems to me that the default just now is lower pay, worse terms and fewer rights. So my hope for Cryptotask is that it will seek to adress some of this by offering value both to customers and freelancers through their lower fee system. 

Another Issue that i dont always wish to get personally involved in is sharing on my personal social media accounts and much of the fleelanch economy still seems to be centred around these kinds of activities. I spent quite a bit of time working on my persoanl and business social media based accounts and i really dont wish to start spamming them with advertisements for companies which i probably dont hae ample time to do due dilligence to ensure they are legit, potentially creating a situation where a friend or colleague could sign up to something, get burned and then blame me for advertising it to them. Opening up the task size and removing censorship and allowing that extra flexibility to task makers will hopefully open up the market a bit and allow people like me more options when choosing tasks.

It would also be interesting to see task makers offer short term contract or even long term contract work to people to do things like social media managemet, telegram admin and the like and i believe a site like this could be a great recruitment tool for employers.

3 months is extremely long. No one should have to wait that long after a job to be paid. I also agree that pay should be competitive with the market. I would love to do some freelance work on crowdholding!

Totally I agree with Cryptotask's opinion that as the millennial generation is moving toward an individualistic approach to work, more and more are becoming entrepreneurs and freelancers. I have been in freelance business for about 5 years until recently. I had worked around 25 years in tading department of Big group related to textile machinery export and retired.

1. I worked for a factory in Daegu area (Famous area for textile in Korea)for 3 years as a freelance after my retirement. My work was to arrange all export process including finding impoter in other countries for textile goods of the factory, while the factory agreed to pay about $ 2,000 for each export. The contract made between the factory and me was not written but by word of mouth, which was mistake. After the first two years, the hiree sent me by cash after every achievment. However, since the economic conditions of Korean textile companies have not good, I did not receive any money eventhoug I achieved my job as a freelancer. Finally the hiree put off the payment with such many excuses and I could not accuse him because of no written contract between us. I think freelance working conditions (contract) are not problems because the contract is bad or the adoption processor is long, but it is a matter of will between the parties. All contracts should be documented at the time of agreement.

2. The positive side of working as freelancers, gives me plenty of time for myself. It is that I enjoy doing what I want to do variously and get paid for it financially.

Anyway, I think more and more companies and individuals will pursue freelance working condition. Above all, it must be something right and useful for myself.

1. I joined Upwork somewhere in 2015 to freelance as a writer but without success. I did my best and applied for some jobs but it seemed clients preferred freelancers who had already built enough reputation on the platform, which made sense. I'd have done the same if I were them. I quit after a month without landing any job and deleted my account. Maybe I didn't try too hard, which is my own fault but I did realize also, that freelancers with high reputations on the platform could charge on their own terms and not from that of the client's. I also joined iWriter in 2016 but left because the amounts being paid for writeups were to low for starters. A 300-word writeup for $2, a 250-word writeup for $1 and other similar slightly crazy deals. I quit after a day. I've not checked the amounts today but I don't want to know either. Another thing I'd like to add is that my location seemed not to favour me. I'm from Ghana and once some clients got to see that, they just moved to an American counterpart (because most of these sites are American) or someone within their territory to facilitate easy business. I'd have done the same if I were them.

2. Overall, starting was difficult but once the reputation was built, clients came after you. That was a positive sign. As for the system being easy, I won't vouch for that at all with respect to new freelancers. However, if the niche you wanted to freelance for was quite uncommon (for example blockchain technology, software engineering, machine learning, etc), then the competition over there was way less, sometimes with jobs not even picked up due to lack of freelancers.

As a freelance writer some months are good with steady in flow of work and other months not so much. It can be a bit frustrating that you don't really have a steady income. There's also the fact that the bulk of my work is as a ghostwriter and someone else takes the credit for your creation. Which is not good because I've written a couple of books over the years for clients and I am not an author.

Lily, may I suggest you become an author? You've written books, so you know what to do. It sounds like you feel unfulfilled, so maybe it would give you a boost! You could do it during the slow months and continue ghostwriting for income until you own book is a success.

For being an freelancer their are a lot of struggles that I have been encounter. First is being a freelancer doesn't guarantee me an income because sometimes the employer was dissapear after I work their project another struggle was when I finished the work the employer change his mind about the idea and the reserve budget.

But, after all these struggles I have learned a lot. The first thing I learned was don't stop even their is a struggles because I keep on learning that enhance my skills. Another thing was choose the employer on which should have a good contact to them everyday so that I can collaborate to them about the ideas for making the project successful and having a good relationship to them.

After all these, I gained an experience that improves my skills that helps me to gather more quality projects in the near future.

I have worked some freelance jobs as web designer soon after I graduated from high school, but did this locally, not with an online platform. I observed elance, which was the no. 1 platform at that time, but I was discouraged to do some work also over an online platform, the reasons being:

- you need to establish yourself, meaning to have to do some free work upfront, companies will demand a lot of work before they start to pay you adequately and then you compete with freelancers from low-income countries (with low living costs and low taxation)

- as soon as you collect revenues, (at least in my home country) you have to register a company and comply with all the tax rules

- there are mostly offered just tasks, you don't have a say or can't give inputs

- you are depending on the platform and they will take high commissions (pays the customer, but lowers the amount offered to the freelancer)

- have read some "horror" stories about companies demanding sample task submissions (which they eventually use to their benefit), then preselect, demanding again sample tasks and so one until someone eventually gets a real job

Despite being a long-time blogger, content--creator, affiliate marketer, etc. etc.  and having made some OK cash from it, I have never been a freelancer - having always worked for myself, and on my own entities.  

I have a good friend who hires freelancers to do the heavy-lifting in all kinds of projects he creates, from games, to educational portals, to holiday rental platforms, and he's made good income this way.  

My only real freelancer experience type story, and perhaps one that ties in to your censorship-resistant claim, is when I recently tried to hire somebody to clone the Uniswap front-end for me on one of the big freelancer sites (I forget which one)  - having failed to do it myself.  My job was quickly removed from the site, and I was informed that they do not allow "cloning" work, as it goes against their policies.  I tried to explain that the code-base was open-source, but alas to no avail.  :/

I have done some freelance work in the past. I learned the hard way of excepting fast money in lucrative jobs. I had to spend more time and money  finding employers that didn't pay for work completed. The law and the courts were no help in me getting paid. I had to take the law in my own hands and break some fingers.

After I made a name for myself, I was always paid and found more positive work. When trust between new employers is established, work flow comes easy.
