1. Virtual Personal Assistant (Pa)

The first trend in freelancing around the world is virtual personal assistants (PAs), which means a computer assistant instead of actually having a real person do all of your tasks.  PAs are known for their ability to take care of everything from scheduling meetings to checking off emails. While these things are important part

of their role, PA’s also help freelancers keep track of their projects so they know exactly how much money they’ve spent and who they’re spending it on. As with any new job, the internet helps freelancer to connect with additional potential clients and build connections. That can often mean a quicker and easier way to grow your business than

2. Resurgence Modeling Method

Another popular form of freelancing is resurgence modeling or reusability, where a company creates a new product after selling an existing version of the old one.  Companies look to resell a product or service as fast as possible in order to stay in profit and growing. Because businesses often have several versions of their products, it

can become difficult to predict sales and demand for a new piece of equipment. To combat this problem, companies turn to reselling in an attempt to capture market share and increase revenue.  However, this method of acquiring another company’s attention is sometimes used improperly, causing resentment from customers and staff alike.

2. Resurgence Modeling Method

Instead of using reselling, companies have tried to adopt the idea of “gig economy.” This strategy was adopted because it gave consumers more value, which also made people happy. Although gig economy can be beneficial to both sides, it can come at a cost to either party.

3. Drop shipping

One of the biggest challenges facing freelancing is figuring out exactly how a brand and their reputation might affect buying decisions.  Drop shipping involves offering a product or service without going through middlemen or even purchasing a product yourself. In this case, you’re essentially renting out a copy of a brand to others to sell directly to consumers.

3. Drop shipping

When done correctly, drop shippers increase profits due to their low costs of production and marketing.  Unfortunately, because some brands can be extremely expensive, many startups and smaller businesses make the mistake of selling fake reviews online to boost profits.  Fortunately, there are plenty of

And to that end, make sure to take time to research the company as well as reviews that you may run into online as well.

4. Startups/SaaS

If you’re wondering whether you should start your own business, then you need to ask yourself two questions:  1. Are you truly passionate about helping others and  2. Are you willing to put everything at stake to grow your own sustainable business? Since many startups and smaller businesses aren’t able

5. Online Courses & Course Platforms

Many freelancers offer courses to help them improve their craft, either as a subscription or as an expense.  Courses help a freelance writer learn the process and give the freedom to experiment on topics that really interest them, no matter whether it’s web design or writing. By creating courses, freelancers are able to teach others and guide their

The concept of a career as a social media influencer is pretty similar to being a freelancer, except that they work from their homes and have fewer expectations from clients.  A social media influencer simply enjoys sharing their opinions on a wide range of subjects.
