Unlimited earning potential.

That’s what I think about, when it comes to running a freelancing business.

OK, this doesn’t mean you’ll become a millionaire anytime soon, but, if you play your cards right, you should earn enough for a comfortable living.

And yet most freelancers still don’t achieve their true earning potential.

They get more experienced by the day, they do better work with each project they work on and still there’s more money to be made.

Let’s see the 5 ways we could earn more money as freelancers. {click here to read more}

  1. Thank you for this article. I have recently decided to change my career from a Graphic Design and Marketing business owner to a Business Consultant company. The problem is, I have no idea how to make this happen. This article helps more than you realize.

    • Well, you’ll need to understand what services to provide, create a website to showcase your services and testimonials, promote and start getting clients. It’s not gonna be easy, but you can do it.

  2. Ah, the passive income. Trying to figure this out myself, problem is it takes time to get results (aka, earn money while sleeping), just like you said. I’m currently working on getting my blog going and will try to sell ads, (hopefully) in the near future. It’s the only thing I could think of for now.

    • Yeah, creating a strong blog will help. You can get more traffic on it, you can sell ads, promote your services and also showcase your skills (since it’s your project, so it reflects these skills).

  3. I never would have thought I’d even think about freelancing, but I think I’m ready to take this step πŸ˜€ I’m glad I found your website, you are really inspiring! Sure, I still have to figure out what I’m good at, but I’m sure that’s the least of my problems πŸ˜€ So exciting!

  4. I’ve been blogging since 2008. I enrolled/joined with a freelance course that costed me $30/month. That included lifetime downloadable video tutorials, a domain name after the course, forum involvement and community support. I didn’t pursue it after 4 months of being with them. My husband was unemployed at the time. Like you, at the time your child was a baby, I couldn’t keep up with my freelance business because of family. Then, I later on in 2010, I acquired a Certificate for Editing and Proofreading. I lack technical and knowledgeable skills to maintain an online business. I advertised but my website wasn’t drawing clients and traffic.

    I checked out your Freelance Course of $50, $125 or $250. I wonder if you have 24 hour-trial before committing to the course? What do I expect to learn and accomplish after the course of my choice. You might have videos a somewhere in your web, I’ll check further. Thank you, Ramona.

    • I need to put a trial system in place for prospective students, good idea.

      The course will teach you A LOT about how to promote, find clients, manage your cashflow, business etc.

      And the most important thing is that my students are in direct contact with me, even those who don’t get the biggest plan ($200, which includes a 30 minute chat session). They email me with questions, I give them weekly assignments, we discuss in forums etc. πŸ™‚

      • Thank you, Ramona. I got your email, of which I’m very grateful for the offer of free trial. I looked into ______ University for free Web Designing lessons before I got your email. But, the assignments on ______ Uni have to be purchased, Meaning, the lessons as well to get to the assignments. Bump!

        Cheers!

  5. Read the article, thank you for your insight!

    I was surprised to see you found delegating tasks to others a good thing. I’ve only had bad luck when it comes to trusting others with some stuff. The ‘help’ I hired either failed to deliver the work on time (thus, making me look bad in front of my client), or they did a terrible job (again, making me look bad..). So I decided to just work alone for now, take on less projects, but increasing my freelance rates. I’m also working on some passive income sources (when I have the time, of course) and for now it’s just me and myself running the show.

    • Delegating is VERY tricky business, since it’s not easy to find someone reliable. This is why I wouldn’t recommend delegating directly on a project that has a strict deadline. You can work with someone on a project that’s not as ‘tight’ and see how it all works out. Only after doing some test jobs you should let the freelancer handle the work.

  6. I totally agree with everything you said about how to actually earn more money freelancing, and I have to say, getting rid of non-profitable projects &tasks is an eye-opener! I do agree you need to make the most of your free time, but what if you get ‘attached’ to some of the projects you worked so hard on, yet they don’t bring in any profit?

  7. And here I was hoping to read about a secret recipe to earn money without any effort πŸ˜€ Just kidding!
    Great stuff, although it’s true, some of your ideas are easier said than done πŸ™‚ Like, creating a passive income stream is definitely hard work! I’m sure it’s worth it, but yikes! The effort! Hence.. the secret money earning recipe joke πŸ˜€

  8. Great blog! And you and I have the same reason for loving the freelance lifestyle – unlimited earning potential is absolutely it. After two years of working overtime in a salaried position, I received a tiny raise. Meanwhile, as a freelancer I can increase my rates (or learn more profitable skills) every few months. It’s great! Awesome blog and I look forward to reading more.

    • Hello Rob and thanks for stopping by.

      I’m happy you like our articles here.

      Yeah, working from home is a blessing, once you get the hang of it. I never in my life earned this much money, no matter what job I had and how fancy the company I worked at was πŸ˜€
