How will you turn your freelance job into a permanent job?

Freelancers tend to not have the same benefits as to a permanent worker. Some might find it hard managing different clients at the same time. Freelancers also don’t have the stability of a having a regular tank ncome than those who are permanently working. So what can you suggest to the people who wants a more stable income or a permanent job? What are the qualities that empliyers look for in hiring you permanently?

What are the qualities that employers look for in hiring you permanently?

My answer to the question would be two things:

1. Your willingness to learn - everything can be learned as long as you're eager.
2. Work Ethic - no employer would like to hire a lazy son of a gun.

What I can suggest to freelancer is to know how they can secure themselves financially. They should do research and study how could they have a suitable retirement plan if they are going to do freelancing full time. Freelancers should think long term in terms of financial security and it would take a lot of efforts and discipline to do so. There are many resources online where they could study and know what they should do in order for them to be successful in such field.

Whether you can earn your living by working as a freelancer or not depends on various factors and your location is very important factor. If you are from Asia and Africa, you can earn a full time income by working as a freelancer. For instance, I am from Nepal, if I earn $3 I will be making 115 rupees, this amount can buy me sandwich and coffee. I have been working as a full time freelancer since 2010 and I have never felt a need to have a regular job.

That's true. Location definitely plays a big factor on the sustainability of the job you have. I'm from the Philippines and here, if you earn at least a 100 to 500 dollars a month from freelancing, you can live a comfortable life. That's why there's a lot of Pilipino Vloggers on YouTube because their salary is based on US Dollars and when converted becomes much bigger compared to salaries given to office workers/some professionals.

I make $900 per month in average from freelancing, and this amount is enough to pay my bills and buy supplies for the month. Most of my friends earn $750 in average per month. This amount would never be enough for the people in the US and the UK, however, for some like me who lives in a developing country, freelancing job is earning me full time income.

Exactly. My sister lives in Australia and a hundred dollars will never be enough to sustain her needs for a week or two there. Here, if I could earn at least 50 a week, it can already sustain my needs for the week, although it still depends on whether you are supporting a big family or not. If you're single, a 50 a week is already sufficient. If not, a 100 should be okay but won't entirely sustain the needs of your family especially if you reside on the urban areas where everything needs to be purchased.

That's what I was saying, you can earn a full time earning if you are from developing countries. However, in the countries like the US and the UK where living cost is really high, it might be very difficult to earn a living just by freelancing. Having said that I also know a lot of Americans who are earning well by working as a freelancer. Just because they happen to be from English speaking country, they are paid better than those coming from non-English speaking countries.

I started as a writer writing on third party writing sites. I was lucky to be accepted in a paid apprenticeship program offered by HubPges Inc. During the one year program, I was offered upfront payment for each article I published. This helped me boost my earnings and writing career. In 2015, I decided to try web designing. I leared wordpress and began working an wordpress designer. In the mean time I also worked as digital marketer and ghost blogger and ghost writer.

It depends to the lifestyle quality of the country I guess. Like you are earning that amount and it is enough because the quality of life there in Nepal is not as expensive as other countries. I have a Nepali friend by the way.

Your location determines how much money you need. Likewise, your life style also determines how much money you need. If you spend a lot of money on luxury, you might need a lot of money, if you are living a simple life, you a little money might be enough.
How much money you actually need is determined by the purchasing power parity in your country.
I just checked the price of McDnald's Bacon Clubhouse Burger in the US. It cost $6.49, however, we can buy two McDnald's Bacon Clubhouse Burger in Nepal.

That is right. For some countries the lifestyle is too high because of the status of the country itself. If you are staying in a third world country then the life style there might cheaper.

I do not use the phrase "third world country" instead I like to use developing countries. The both phrase refer to the country with low economies, yet the later phrase sounds more convincing. If you are from developing countries, it is easy to develop your career as a freelancer as long as you clients are from the developed world and pay in USD.

The point is you have to use politically correct terminologies. The world "Comrade" is common in the army or Communist circles. Comrade means friend. However, you do not all comrade to your friend unless you are an army or a Communist. After the cold war ended, o let say USSR collapsed, the term "third world" also collapsed. The first world was the United States and other American and European countries, Second Word was Russia and the rest of the countries were Third world. Since there is no second world, there are no third world countries.

I don’t think a retirement plan is appropriate to think at this time with the condition of most freelancers like a hand-to-mouth existence. Maybe some of the freelancers who earn so much should already be thinking of retirement even if they are still young just to take advantage of their big earnings because when the earnings become meager the situation will be panicky with the earnings.

I think being just a freelancer will not guarantee that you will have stable income stream. I have friends who used to have good and big clients before but now is struggling to get big projects. I think it is best for freelancers to start their own company so they will not only rely on the projects that will be given by their current clients. For example, if you are offering SEO services for some clients and you only earn when you work, why not create a SEO company where you will become the boss and you'll hire good SEO specialist so that you can offer better services to many clients. When your company succeeds, it will give greater amount amount of income than just being a freelancer by yourself. It's great to start as a freelancer and end up as the boss.

I couldn't agree more. In all honesty, this is my goal and what I'm ultimately aiming for. If you're earning big as an employee, imagine what more if you're the employer (business owner). But the road to being a boss takes a lot of learning and sacrifices. You need to really excel on what you do so that the people who are under you will respect you. Everything can be learned, with proper knowledge combined with the right timing, anyone can achieve success. All the best!

If you want your career as a freelancer, you should have patience. I began freelancing in 2007 when I finished my university program. I chose to become a freelancer because I was already earning as a freelance writer. However, its only me who understands the pain I took to establish myself as a freelancer and build a regular income.

That's excellent advice for us all. Freelancing is a business too if I am not mistaken, the only difference is you're the boss. Success does take time and does not happen overnight. What we're just saying is you need to have integrity if you want to last in this industry.

There is no stable income in freelancing, however, you can make money and live a comfortable life. IN order to maximize your earning potential, you should consider building your skills and work in multiple areas. I started a a writer and If I had remained just a writer, I would not have made this far. I developed my skills on various areas such as SEO, SMM, SEM, web designing. Now I can work n different areas and make money. Previously people could only hire me as a writer. However, these days they can hire me for anything from developing web contents to building websites.

You must have the skills that they need and having an experience among other competitors is a great advantage. But I believe the most important is you should have a good attitude both on your work and to the people in your working place. In other words, professionally skilled and good personality are the best qualities that you can offer so you can secure a permanent job from the company or whoever employers you are pursuing to.

That's great advice. Having a pleasing personality certainly elevates you in many ways. I've also found it helpful to be prepared as much as possible. There will be days when income will be slow or unavailable. Such as when freelancers don't have clients for some time.

It's best to find other ways of earning to help with that. Such as making your own website for your services.

A person with no specialized skills can get a job and earn his living. However, in order to become a freelancer you need specialized skills. If you do not have any specialized skills, how would you make money. A writer with a general skills can earn money by writing on newspaper, however, a blogger needs writing skills along with SEO, website management, website development, digital marketing etc. A graphic artist working for a firm might earn well, however, a graphic designer working online also needs marketing skills.

Always turn over your work with quality as the highest priority, make it world-class. Employers do love people who show great work ethic, but they are more attracted to professionals who provide quality work, they value them more. That my friend is a sure fire way to get hired permanently.

I think one best way to turn your freelancing job into a permanent job is to get more clients. Some freelancers are able to handle 3 or more clients without sacrificing the quality of their work. In case that one client closes his company, you won't lose your source of income since you still have other clients.

There are also platforms out there that posts job for long-term instead of per gig. If you want to be in the industry for a long time, it's best to apply to full-time positions or anything that takes longer than six months.

Freelancers do have a very challenging work-life than the other people who do have a fixed job. a lot of perseverance, honesty dedication, ability to never quit. all these qualities are very necessary for a freelancer to convert his job into a successful business or a venture. another most important thing is a lot of experience to handle situations and manage all the people working under him efficiently.

Freelancers lately mostly starting freelancing as side job by earning extra money and working things they really have passion for, more like a hobby. And that's good. You can work like that for years, when you have spare time. But if at some point you evaluate that you having constantly enough freelancing income and becoming too busy, then it may be good idea to become full-time freelancer and give up your nine to five job. In another case, it may be risky and you may experience low income with the hardship of satisfaction

Another way you can turn your freelance job into something that's more like a permanent job is by selling your services directly to interested buyers from your blog. Instead of looking for work, those interested in paying for your services will come looking for you. In order to get here, you need to be very good at what you do.

So I suppose the first step of turning your freelance job to your primary source of income is by attaining excellence in your field of expertise.

Selling services and products can be a wonderful way to generate money. However, in order to sell product or services, you must have product and services that is in high demand. If you are selling the same thing that other people are also selling, it will be difficult to generate sales. In order to earn a full time income from freelancing, you need to work on various areas, from blogging to doing ecommerce.

Freelancing job is a tough work for me and I cannot guarantee that it can have a full time earnings especially if we are just relying to some companies or projects at a specified period of time. It is very hard if we have that particular situation since after the project was finished we may look again which is time consuming to do. I think it is better if we can have some skills or expertise that we can offer to some clients or companies since I think it is a sure hit since we ill not just depend on available projects but instead we can make use our expertise to have a full time earnings,

Million dollar question. I think you can turn your freelancing into a regular job. You can do this by getting the required skills, You can become so good that clients look for you and not the other way round.If you are on demand as a freelancer, trust me you will even have to outsource your work. They are many freelancers online, but not many know what they are doing. Freelancing can definitely pay, even more then a regular job.

It's hard to convert a freelance job to a permanent one. It's because the amount of work that we have varies. There are times that we have tons of work or clients and sometimes we do not have any. If we want to maybe convert it to a permanent job, we would have to have many clients so we always have work to do and there is consistent income.

For now my freelance job is not yet stable since i am earning less from it but I am optimistic that someday it can turns out to be a permanent job for me because it feels good to work online rather than working offline since you will not have some boss to supervise you which is really irritating at some point.

It can be challenging to turn your freelancing job to a permanent job. Aside from getting more than one client, you also need to have someone who will trust your work for a long time. If the business of your client is growing and he sees you as one of the reasons for his success then he will continue to work with you. The problem comes in when the business of your client starts to fail and ended up closing his business.

I think it's very hard to make your freelancing job into a permanent one. With the freelance jobs, you don't have the guarantee that you'll get work in the future. It's always an on-basis schedule. It really depends if you get hired or not. With normal jobs, you kind of have that security. The only time you'll lose your job is when you quit or get fired. If you don't do that, they you have security.

I think that's one of the hardest things for me as a freelancer right now - the fluctuation in income. I'd like something more stable as a freelancer because right now I seem to get tons of work some weeks, and then virtually nothing some weeks. It's one of those markets where it ebbs and flows, so one of the things I've really got to be conscious of is creating a budget for the money that comes in when business is good! Freelancing has really taught me to be more aware of budgeting and finance, which has been a really beneficial skill!

Even offline jobs aren't that stable anymore. How much more for the online freelance workers? I do think freelancing will be more stable in the future, given how the amount of people wanting to work from their homes and technology advancing and all.

That's something I've been noticing where I live more and more. Redundancies are happening in loads of industries because things are becoming automated...things that used to require humans to operate them don't anymore. Even look at simple things like self-serve checkouts at supermarkets compared to what used to be staffed by individuals. It's what turns a lot of people to look for freelance work, I think - so they can be in charge of their own destiny to a degree.

Security guards in my country comes to mind when it comes to redundancies. They are literally everywhere.

I became a freelancer to escape from stress and tension and doing online freelance work is more suited for me. I can readily take an 8 hour online job that pays well but it would just be the same stress all over again. What I'm looking for are sites which will pay me for whatever amount of work I've done, with no time constraints, jobs which I can do whenever and wherever I want to do it. This includes Survey Sites, Micro Job Sites, Quiz/Trivia Sites, Forum Posting Sites and some other kinds of sites that I could earn daily from. That's why I'm constantly searching for such sites. I tried working 8 hours in a job site that pays $4.00 an hour and it was pressure packed, I don't like fixed time jobs.

No time constraints are something I really look for as well. I'm a stay at home mom so some days I just don't have the ability to stick to really firm deadlines like I did before I had children. That ends up being a pretty big consideration when I look for jobs, and I really gravitate towards things that allow me to work at my own pace and offer quite a bit of flexibility. It takes out a huge amount of stress that I'd have working in an office or for an online job with strict deadlines.

You might earn some money through forum posting, surveys, reward sites, however, tasks like these will never generate a full time income.

Have you tried transcription jobs?

I've heard rumors that one can earn a little extra from these sites. The only downside is, you won't make a lot of money off transcription work. But an extra $45 or so a week isn't all that bad, especially if all this is done in your free time.

A good transcription you could take a look at is "gotranscript." They accept transcribers from all over the world.

People often say that everyone is replaceable and can easily be substituted. But I believe every human being is very unique and is in fact invaluable. I haven't met a boss who'll want to circulate employees all the time and lose his important cadres, search for new ones, etc. That's tremendously time consuming to review job interviews all the time. Meet new people, some of them not the people you would want... The really good business owners and CEOs aim to keep the team together. They need people that will stay there, for longer. Not for five months and leave. Especially if the employers are used to the team. The good employers will look for stability, calmness, peacefulness, and nearly all employers will want employees who follow their leads and work together towards a common goal. Without the heated arguments and yelling. That's what I think.

Greetings,

This job thing isn't really a freelance type of job, but it is a blog I have. I am going to try to turn my new blog into a full-time job with the help of Google Adsense and the Amazon affiliate program. I never really done this type of thing before, and the niche I am in is kinda slow growing.

Hopefully, I can earn at least $350 per week as this would tremendously help me financially. A paycheck of $600 monthly is fine with me at this moment. My ultimate goal for this new blog would be to earn at least $3,000 per month from advertisements. So far my Google Adsense income from this particular blog is a big whopping $4.00. I hope to fix that in the weeks to come.

As the blog grows and traffic increases I expect to do other things to earn more money and to help further this blog. The ultimate monetary goal would be at least $4,500 in earnings per month, wish me luck.

My plan is to have a popular blog that can serve as my livelihood when I go full time in freelancing. So far I am learning a lot of SEO methods from this site and I know that knowledge will steer me to handle my blog very well in terms of obtaining traffic. Of course, I will have regular readers since the niche of dogs is pretty popular among my friends in social media. I can also venture in affiliate marketing although I am not betting much on that.

I think they are many freelancers online. I think it's also hard for clients to choose.If a client finds you and you can deliver prompt speedy work. You are trustworthy, Your work is top quality you are bound to have landed yourself a permanent client. You can offer services that's the client constantly needs like writing and blogging. I think quality and speed are the most important. If you have more clients than you can handle you can always outsource your work.

Yes, there are many freelancers and it is very difficult to compete. However, there are techniques to survive. The first survival technique is you have better skills. If you are a freelance writer, you are very good at writing anything from a press release to a SEO content. If you are a freelance designer, you are very good at creating unique logos that are also eye catching. The second survival skill is you do different things, you are a writer as well as a graphic desiger.

I am still depending on my offline work in terms of my daily living since it gives me a lot from food and other necessities that I need to make a good living. Maybe If I have some great skills as a freelancer then I could say that I can make it to a full time job but now it would really be impossible for me because I need to learn more some skills before I can start earning well.

How will you turn your freelance job into a permanent job: As a newbie in freelancing my awareness in this field was so limited and I can't trust this awareness for me live by this field or serve as a permanent job, as of now I can say that freelancing is good source of extra income in your free time.
