The Status of Freelancing in South Africa.

South Africans have a lot to benefit if most of them take up freelancing as a permanent or a temporary employment solution but even though a few individuals are starting to take up freelancing, The rate at which this is happening is really low compared to Countries such as Australia, India and USA and those countries are really at the forefront of the freelancing movement, and also one can include in this list a country such as Turkey.

Even though one could mention things such as the Digital Divide such is no longer the case presently.

The reason is with the level of smart phones penetration both in rural and urban areas in South Africa, then you will then realise that most individualsFreelancing South Africa do have access to the internet rather what is lacking is the level of education especially concerning what could be done with such an internet access.

Now the responsibility of educating South Africans as to the advantages of having access to internet in order to solve our social problems falls not solely on he private sector but is also the responsibility of the government in power at this very moment in South Africa.

The Benefits of Freelancing especially for a Country such as South Africa are too numerous to mention.

One only has to understand that South Africa although it is a strong country economically compared to the rest of the African Country still has some of the lowest employment rates compared to the same countries, this is unacceptable even if one can explain the situation in any way possible.

Freelancing Should really be an option that the government itself consider as an alternative to the present social and economic crises in South Africa.

Creating an online freelance portfolio is the responsibility of every freelancer who is serious about working on freelancing jobs.

You cannot seriously work on freelancing jobs without your own online freelance portfolio it is just like looking for a job without a CV it could prove very difficult indeed.

Now how do you create your freelancing portfolio?

Creating a freelancing portfolio only depends on what kind of a freelancer you are, this tells you how you can create your own freelancing portfolio. For instance an online freelance portfolio of a website developer is not going to be created the same way as that of freelance writer.

The reason for this is that they have two different goals, the website developer need website development freelance jobs where ‘else the freelance writer wants freelance writing jobs so creating freelancing portfolio’s for this two different freelancers cannot be approached the same way indeed.

How to create an online freelance portfolio for freelance writing jobs?

Creating this portfolio has to take into account the fact that the freelancer has to concentrate on his/her skills more than anything else. Meaning the online freelance portfolio for a freelance writer has to allow the freelancer to write mostly and has to showcase written work better than anything else.

Meaning a blogging platform is the most suitable platform for an online freelance portfolio for a freelance writer.

A Self hosted WordPress blog can do the trick as it has extra capabilities such as the ability to install plugins for even your freelancing profiles from multiple freelancing websites.

How to create an online freelance portfolio for a freelance website developer?

Creating a freelancing portfolio for a freelance website developer is also influenced highly by the fact that the skill you need to present to clients his is the freelancer’s ability to develop websites.

Meaning the freelancer has to be able to present his skill on as wide a range as possible but concentrate on his skill set if it’s possible.

The Online freelance portfolio could be created on a HTML5 CSS3 based website with an integrated WordPress Blog updates and presentations of multiple designs on a WordPress Blog.

The WordPress blog could also be further developed as a platform where clients can submit their freelancing jobs straight to the freelancer.

Extras for both online freelance portfolios.

 

Able to create invoices and accept payments within your own online freelance portfolio.

What could benefit all the freelancing portfolios is if they all have the ability to create and send invoices to the freelancers clients once their freelance jobs are completed.

 

Ability to create freelancing teams within the online freelance portfolio.

The ability to create freelancing teams could be an advantage for both the freelancer and the clients as it could mean that freelancing jobs get completed faster and better than ever before as they are talked by a team of freelancers rather than just a single freelancer.

Freelancing Solutions provides premium freelancing accounts that can offer you all the solutions proposed for a freelancing portfolio above.
