I worked as a freelancer last Nov 2017 in India at truelancer. I will detail guide start Freelancing in India. After the end of the COVID session as you know mostly all IT workers ‘work as work from home’ also in the meantime mostly developers and designers choose freelancing because it provides you full freedom of work. India is the second-fastest-growing freelancing market in the world with a 46% per year increment after COVID So I also provide a guide for freelancers when you can choose freelancing as a profession and make more than $5K-$10K per month.
Here I mentioned secret details How to Start Freelancing in India.
Most Freelancers work as SEO, Web developer, Mobile App developer, and Graphics designer in Freelancing platforms. If you have skills in these fields, you can start freelancing in India with passive earning. If you have some other niche you can go with this but most clients wish to hire these types of freelancers so you must know these skills or anyone.
Select working time
Full-time freelancers: They are the ones who make all of their income from freelance and do not have any other full-time jobs. If you have passion and dedication for this field you can choose this type. It’s the most awarded field than others.
Part-time Freelancer: These are the people who have a full-time job at an IT company and also do freelancing. Most Website/WordPress Developers start out this way.
Select Freelancing Platform
At this time many Freelancer Platforms are available but I suggest you Best and low competition freelancing platforms. I mention Few platforms with working so according to you and with my suggestion you can decide on one great platform for start freelancing in India.
- Upwork: Upwork broad community of freelancers. It’s a US-based freelancer company with 18 million freelancers. No other freelancing platform is bigger than Upwork but it has much competition so I do not suggest this platform for beginners because mostly many talented and company-based freelancers use this platform. Thousands of projects are posted on Upwork’s work marketplace each day with $50-$75k per month revenue from freelancers easily.
- Fiverr: Fiverr is an Israeli-based online marketplace for freelance services. The company provides a platform for freelancers to offer services to customers worldwide. On Fiverr, you can hire a freelancer as well as you can work as a freelancer. You only need a few minutes to set up your Fiverr account then you can start posting your gigs.
For example, you can post a gig(Service) that says ‘I will create a logo for you for $5’ or something like “I can Make intro a video for you for $10”.
Fiverr is completely free and without force, for a premium subscription, you can post unlimited gigs. you can also create packages. because this is mostly online you can work from whatever place you think is convenient for you. Freelancing has become a well-known career choice now.
- Freelancer: Freelancer is the largest freelance marketplace and its work as project-based and hourly based does not provide service offers like Fiverr. Here more than 50 Million freelancers work with this platform. It provides great milestone functionality in each project. Here using milestone functionality you can divide one project cost into 2-3 parts e.g Project Budget: $250 and your milestone is $100 advance payment will be released and left $150 after completion of the project.
- Truelancer: It’s India based freelancing platform and more than 1 million freelancers work with this. If you are a beginner and have no advanced skills, you can go with this because it provides very low competition for new freelancers. It also supports milestone functionality of more than 200$ projects. It also provides a good communication approach with clients so there are more chances to get projects if you start a freelancing journey in India.
“In my opinion, choose Truelancer if you are an India-based freelancer and start freelancing in India. It provides you with great support and very low competition from the other websites. For free its provide you free 20 bids per month but if you want professional so choose premium because the premium plan provides you 24*7 support with 100 bids per month.”
