I started freelancing on mobile a few years ago. I earned nearly $200 from mobile freelancing using the strategies below. It is a little bit up and down at starting. But since I am interested and loved doing it. if you have any queries leave a comment ?. I like to react. So let’s dive in!
Freelancing can be done by the students studying in school, unemployed people, and senior citizens who took retirement. But all the people can’t afford a computer or laptop. But you can do freelancing from your mobile. If you have the right skill and interest in doing it.
Like other jobs or businesses. Freelancing on mobile also has pros and cons.
1. Workspace flexibility
Unless other jobs and work you don’t have to sit at your PC or Desk. You can work from anywhere. You can work while travelling, sleeping, or sitting in the washrooms anywhere where you have a good internet connection and charge.
2. Flexible working hours
You don’t need to fix any working hours. You can work in the morning, noon, evening, or midnight, at anytime that you wish you do.
3. Response rate
After hearing the notification sound from your clients you can quickly respond to them. In which you can maintain a high response rate. But in pc, you should start and open the platform and then respond which may take some time to respond and a chance of a low response rate.
4. No Burden
You won’t have the burden of caring for heavyweight laptops or any other device. You can just work with a phone with very little weight.
1. Not able to provide all the services
While working from your smartphone you can’t provide services like coding, programming, web development, app development, advanced video editing, Advanced photo editing, 2d or 3d animation, Illustrations, Audio mixing, mastering, etc…
2. Less Productivity
You can’t improve your workflow without having advanced softwares or tools which were available on only pc. So you will have less productivity of having limited tools.
3. No possibility of multitasking
You can’t do multi-tasking on your phone as you do on your pc. You have to work on one task at a time. There is no possibility of multitasking on your phone.
While doing freelancing work on your phone. There is a chance of distractions from texts, phones & other app notifications. This may lead to losing your focus and dropping off.
5. Limited storage
On a mobile phone, you will have very little amount or limited storage unlike the pc does have more storage space. There are cloud storages which you can use on mobile. There will be some difficulty in sending files to clients. Overall if you manage in doing it. Then, It won’t be a problem.
