    There are a number of steps to take in order to become a freelancer, but most importantly it's important to map out what you will offer and who needs that type of expertise. A good starting point is looking at the skills that you have and considering how best these can be put into action for people who need your help. The first step is finding out where such things exist - there may not be anywhere on the internet dedicated to freelance work, but multiple websites offer varying opportunities for this kind of work including traditional job listings and paid projects. With this knowledge in hand it should be possible to focus on exactly what is required and which websites need your services.

    Whether you want to do side-gigging or you're looking for a full-time gig, the first thing to do is figure out what niche you should work in. For instance, if your skill set leans towards writing, publishing and marketing then try to find companies who either need content written about their products and services or need help promoting their brand/company on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. But this isn't the only way freelancers earn. Studies show that many people make money by consulting with businesses who want internal training (to upgrade employees skills) or project based consultants.

    First, freelancers must have a legitimate skill or trade that they can offer to clients looking for that expertise. Next, you need to set up a freelancer website and make sure your resume is up to date with all of your skills. Attach a portfolio of previous work as well as testimonials from former customers. It's also important to be meticulous about notifying customers when they order something from you. Always pop back in their files after 3-4 days and drop them another email confirmation email so nothing falls through the cracks!

    If you cannot find the necessary resources, perhaps it may be worth discussing your skills with a college advisor to see if there are any pre-existing courses or programs that would better fit what you are looking for. If they don't have anything available in your field, inquire about visiting one of their classrooms and seeing if they'll arrange for someone to meet with you (and/or provide information on how to craft an email). You may also want to consider reaching out via LinkedIn / Twitter with this same question or even talk informally at cafes or conferences; these networking attempts might yield more leads than just scouring the internet.

    There are three ways I know of to become a freelancer. 1) Start your own business. 2) Get hired on by an existing company. 3) Partner with other freelancers to form an agency or start your own agency. You can also leverage platforms like eLance, Odesk, Freelancer, and others where clients post projects for "outsourced labor" to provide their customers with custom solutions for requirements that would be too expensive in-house. There are even opportunities available these days which involve incubating businesses inside larger organizations that need them in order to grow or operate in new markets.
