Getting freelance gigs is not an easy task. You have to look for quality work across multiple freelance platforms. After you find some, there is the task of sending proposals and competing with other freelancers. The chances of you getting a particular gig are always thin in the beginning because of the competition.
This is where Truelancer comes in to help. Over every proposal that you write to send for a project you are allowed to participate in discussions with the client through our discussion forum below the project.
This tool is made to be used before you send the proposal for that project. It can provide you with certain advantages and information so that you can send the best proposal according to your potential. This greatly increases your chances of bagging quality gigs and boosting your freelance career.
Here is how Truelancer discussions can help your freelance prospects
Know more about the project
Discussions allow you to know more about the project. You can discuss different aspects of the project with the employer and know for yourself. You will have an idea of how much real effort you will have to put in. This way you can decide whether you can fit in the project into your schedule and deliver on the deadline. Thus your clarity about the whole project increases.
Connect with the Employer
The discussion portal also allows the employer to connect with various freelancers. You also get the same opportunity. These discussions may lead to more followers and more favourites in your profile. You get to know more about the employer which helps you in networking and expanding your prospects further.
The whole purpose of the discussion tool is to enable you to form a solid network of likeminded freelancers and clients.
Establish a communication channel
It is very important to have transparent communication between freelancers and clients in order for smooth contractual work flow. The aim of discussions is to establish this channel for the freelancers and clients. Once you start communicating the transparency will increase and both sides will have a better idea of each other and the entire workflow.
Show your abstract skills
The discussion platform is an excellent way to show your other skills to your clients. These employers consistently search for attributes like networking skills, negotiation skills, how you market yourself, what your temperament is and others. These skills are evident in the way you conduct yourself in these discussions.
Send a better proposal
The increased clarity about the entire work stream will help you fabricate an advanced proposal which specifically answers all the needs of the client. This increases your chances of bagging quality freelance gigs and increasing your credibility and reputation in the eyes of the clients. This helps generate better feedback and endorsements and gets the wheels in motion for your freelance career.
