Many people around the world make various kinds of New Year’s resolutions at the end of every December. Often these resolutions involve financial aspects – how to make more money, how to save more money, how to grow a business, etc. Usually people put all of the pressure on themselves to make these resolutions come true, but what if you could put some of that on someone else?
That’s where freelancers come in. The freelance economy is burgeoning across the world with many people either working full-time or part-time as freelancers sharing their expertise with those who need it. There are many ways that freelancers can help you reach your business goals this coming year – here are just a few.
Become More Knowledgeable
Sometimes in business, you are put into positions or take on tasks that you are not an expert in. Yet, you need to be successful not only for your business, but your career. Instead of becoming stressed about this, see freelancers as a way to help you rise to the occasion.
Many freelancers have very specific areas in which they are experts – they have all the knowledge and skills you need to learn in order to be successful. By speaking with them one-on-one or maybe taking a few group classes online, which you can do both of on Zeqr, you can quickly get up to speed on the topic.
Hire for Expertise
When you want to grow your business, often that involves hiring. But, the cost of hiring a new employee from recruitment, the interview process, additional overhead, etc. is estimated at 1.5-3 times an employee’s actual salary. At a point where you’re just growing, may not have enough work for someone full-time, or want to test the waters first, hiring a freelancer is a great way to go.
As mentioned previously, freelancers can often fill a very specific need and will help you determine 1) if you have enough work for someone full-time, 2) what the ROI would be from this position/if it would actually move the needle, and 3) ultimately, if you’d want to hire someone for this position/if it’s the best direction for your company to head. Additionally, when hiring a freelancer, you won’t incur many of the additional costs of an actual employee.
Whether if it’s for a class or for a position in your business, Zeqr is a great place to find freelancers with expertise who can help you take some of the burden off yourself in the new year and who can help you reach your New Year’s resolutions! Check it out today.
