I very much appreciated the wealth of information in this article. I discovered your site while reading your review of Writers.work.
I wonder if you have written about changes in the writing and home-working climate as a result of Covid-19. I’m a writer who has been encouraged to try to work from home by my doctor, which puts me back into the freelance market. I’d be interested to know how much new work-from-home competition the coronavirus has created. (I’ll be check g your site, but I’m also being lazy and posting the inquiry here.)
Again, thank you for great advice rendered so far.
Hi Doug, That’s a great question.
There’s an argument that the freelance market thrives during tough times such as recessions, because companies prefer to use freelance resources than commit to hiring employees. On the other hand, there are thousands of people entering the job market resulting in more competition. Broadly I think it evens out, but the realist in me suspects it probably does place some downward pressure on rates, even if there’s still plenty of work out there.
Ultimately, the freelance market is a meritocracy – the people who stand out will always find work.
I think you’d definitely benefit from listening to a couple of our podcasts (link) 🙂 Especially the one with the CEO of Freelancer.com
Awesome job. Keep up the good work! I have been looking into remote jobs for a couple of years and your website is honest and comprehensive. Maybe Iʻll actually do it one day! Your site gives me a great background. But, now I understand that I have to really take the plunge.
