10 Questions Unemployed Nigerians Are Asking About Freelancing



Freelancing is an increasingly popular way to work. Over the years, Freelancing is becoming more and more popular in Nigeria as ordinary unemployed Nigerians are now banking several millions from the comfort of their homes or offices as freelancers. But what is freelancing, why do people freelance and can I make a career out of it? This article answers the 10 questions Nigerians are always asking about freelancing.

1. What is freelancing?
Freelancing occurs when someone offers his or her services for an agreed period in return for a fee. Freelancers (also known as contractors or service providers) are independent of the businesses or individuals that hire their services. Generally, freelancers work on jobs of a short duration although contract periods do vary in length and can be and are often extended.

2. Who can become a freelancer?
The short answer is anyone. There are no restrictions as to who can become a freelancer. As long as you have a skill or service that a business or individual needs then you can offer your services and be a freelancer.

3. Who hires freelancers?
Freelancers are hired by individuals and organizations, including micro enterprises, small and medium sized enterprises, large companies, like Tesco, charities, local and central government, e.g., HM Revenue & Customs, and public bodies.

4. What services do freelancers offer?
Freelancers offer a diverse set of services. There really isn't a fixed list. Some services offered by freelancers include:
  • event planning and management (e.g., weddings, birthdays, etc.)
  • book-keeping & accounting
  • car valet
  • virtual assistance (e.g., email & diary management, call answering, etc.)
  • IT support & customer helpdesk
  • Website design & development
As a rule of thumb, if an organization or individual can micro outsource it, then it can be freelanced! you can learn the different freelancing services that can be done without having a special skill here

5. Which services are in demand?

Demand for services varies but research has shown that the demand for freelance workers increases during "times of economic uncertainty". So this is a great time to freelance! Job information sites such as itjobswatch or just searching and counting the number of freelance opportunities can provide useful information on the demand for freelance services.

But don't be discouraged if your service doesn't appear popular. In fact, offering a service that has low demand also means that there is less competition and that's great for your future earnings!

6. What are the advantages of being a freelancer?
There are many advantages to freelancing. Some of my favorites include:
Being your own boss. Freelancing is one of best ways to start your own business. Being your own boss also allows you to decide how many hours you work, when in the year and in which locations.
Getting paid to travel. If you enjoy traveling, then freelance work can take you around the world or further a field. What's more, you can travel at someone else's expense!

Working from home or remotely. If your preference is to work from home then freelancing offers this flexibility and freelancers can enjoy a successful business doing just that. The Internet has created remote working possibilities that businesses across the globe are keen to use.
Earning money quickly. Freelancers can be paid not only more quickly and frequently than permanent employees but they can earn much more in a given period than a permanent employee doing similar work.

7. What are the disadvantages of freelancing?

But being a freelancer has some disadvantages, too. Some of which include:
 
Having to find work. If you're a freelancer then there's no boss to give you your first (or next) job. So, it's up to you to find work. Luckily, there are Web sites that specialise in freelancing that can assist to make this process easier.

Having to maintain your CV. Your CV is what's going to help you get your next job, if not your first one, so you'll need to update it as jobs are completed and new skills are acquired. This can become a chore but it's necessary if you want to convey your current experience and knowledge.

8. Where can I freelance?

As mentioned, an advantage of freelancing is that it allows you to travel. Depending on your skills and the service you offer, you may work on freelance jobs locally, nationally or internationally. For example, you might offer a gardening service, which would be more likely offered to local individuals and businesses. Or you might freelance as a personal trainer and offer services locally and regionally.

You can also work from the comfort of your home as a data entry operator, article writer, CCTV operator, proofreader and so on. As indicated, the Internet has opened numerous opportunities for people to work remotely without the need to be at a client's site.

9. How to get started?
 today, their are many micro jobs websites globally that generates hundreds of millions of jobs annually. to get started, you need to know the top performing of those sites and the way around them. as their are a lot of other freelancers across the globe that are also competing for those jobs, Nigerian freelancers have to know their way around those websites. i have written a well explained and down to earth step by step guide that will help ordinary Nigerian freelancers to make millions of Naira annually from those sites. you can see the guide by clicking this link.

Fortunately, there are specialist sites that can help you freelance your services. On these sites, you'll find jobs with differing requirements and budgets. You'll also be able to advertise 1 or more services, indicating your skills, daily or hourly rate and locations, if you also wish to work at a client's site. And unlike job boards or CV aggregators, you'll also be able to use the site to interact with job providers to, for example, clarify requirements or work with them once you've got the job!

10. Can I make a career out of freelancing?

Absolutely, yes! If you're currently working, you can try out freelancing in parallel with your main job before deciding whether to do it full-time. If you're between jobs or on a career break then freelancing is a way to quickly earn some money whilst filling the empty space on your CV. And who knows, you might just like it!

5 Common Mindsets that Breeds Poverty

It is a little bit normal to be passive when it comes to the issue of money, but it becomes toxic when it is done in excess. I will tell you the truth, the only difference between the rich and the poor is “Mindset.”

Many would argue that “opportunities” and “luck” are also part of the game, but they fail to realize “opportunity” and “luck” that they claim to be a determinant is also presented to the poor. I still insist that people who moved from “poor” to “millionaires” in their lifetime claimed that they had a change of mindset along the line.

If you have read the “Rich Dad Poor Dad Series”, you will agree with me on some points that will be mentioned in this article. Just like Robert Kiyosaki, I have modeled my line of business according to his. I have experimented on several business fronts which became successful, which I then turn around to teach intending participants at a cheap price.

In this article I will be listing out the mindsets I have seen from people; I also have a strong belief – from experience, that they are among the causes of poverty (lack of finances).

What are the common mindsets that breed poverty?

I can’t afford it

This statement is very common among those with very little money. It is also common among those living on average income monthly. While people with average money mentality will say “I can’t afford it”, people who are financially intelligent would ask, “how can I afford it?”

The sentence “I can’t afford it” blocks the part of your brain that helps you with ways of generating funds for a business project or investment package. But when you use the word “how can I afford it,” your thinking process is activated and sets the ball rolling.

When I tell newly interested participants who wish to start an online business like “Affiliate Marketing” the cost it would take to learn directly from me, most of them shout “I can’t afford it.”  6 Months later – when you check back, they still can’t afford it. Because their financial situation is still the same way it was – unlike those who took the bold step to improve their finances.

I have heard/seen this before

Just because you’ve heard it over and over again without any trial – doesn’t mean it is worthless. Most financial stable people are risk takers – and that is why they are financially stable. They take calculated risks and go for the kill. The end result is that they establish several sources of income, while the financially shallow people are clinging to their single “stable” source of income. Since you have heard it before and seen it work for people, why don’t you give that investment a try?

It doesn’t work

When someone first pitched Affiliate Marketing to me in 2016, I also said the same thing. I felt it was something that wasn’t in existence in Nigeria. Then I went into deep research and saw that many Nigerians were making it big from affiliate marketing. I said to myself, “if it can work for people, why can’t it work for me?”

A few years later I have finally make 10x the initial amount I paid for the training. The fact that many people are looking for ways to earn online made me develop an interest in tutoring others. It is not about the money, it is about the zeal to empower others. It is about the time that will be devoted to teaching you all that you need to know.

When I hear someone say “it doesn’t work”, I see someone who is afraid to try. I see someone who might not be able to make it big in life. It is time to break out of that “it doesn’t work” cliché.

If you are ready to rise above your current financial earnings and establish other sources of income, I will teach you. Just visit the blog and click on this link. When you are done, I will add you to my private Whatsapp group.


If you have any of these mindsets, then it is time to let go. You can always say “I will make it” coupled with actionable actions. Till we meet again, keep the hustle going on smooth.

How to Stop Being Dependent on Monthly Salary

Everybody needs extra sources of income, but not everyone can have it. In this post I will be showing you how I was able to create – not just one or 2, three sources of income that helped me live the life of my dreams.

Living on your paycheck in this country is similar to driving a car without breaks; when the going gets somehow, just expect to crash. Forget what you’ve heard all the time about working hard; your main source of wealth would only be when you’ve diversified your income.

The question now is “How then can you diversify your income?”

Diversifying your income is similar to creating a side hustle. Just anything that will put more money into your pocket is a welcome idea.

Before we proceed, I will say “Do you know that if you make an extra $10 daily, you will have an extra $310 at the end of the month.

This means that when converted into Naira, you will be 111,600 Naira richer. Who wouldn’t appreciate such an amount of money? Let me show you how to achieve this process.

How to create an extra source of income

Choose a profitable skill

I was speaking to a group of salesmen at Abuja who were selling insurance; I asked them how they make money aside from selling insurance. They said “nothing”

Imagine if they can open up another side hustles from becoming affiliate marketers, which I believe pays more than the insurance they are selling.

There are so many profitable skills out there that can give you the money you deserve. Skills like Web design, web development, affiliate marketing, content writing, etc. All these can fetch you side money if you know exactly how to utilize the skills.

Know how to Monetize the Skill

This is actually the hardest part of the whole thing. Once you’ve identified the skills you need to sell, you then have to monetize the skill. Monetizing means selling your skills to people who might need them.

Your employer pays you to use your skill in the workplace, so why can’t you utilize your skills and work for yourself?

There are several places you can use your skill to make money; places like

  • -          Clickbank
  • -          Fiverr (click here to see my fiverr tricks)
  • -          Gotranscript
  • -          Amazon
  • -          Aliexpress
  • -          Upwork


There are several other places where you can actually make the money from the skills you have to offer.

Get the Information

The information is what you actually need to make the money. Most times when newbies come to me asking for how to start making money on the following channels, I tell them to take time and read about the business they are about going into.

A business will only be profitable for you when you have the right knowledge and information. This is where I actually come in to help. You can decide to start making money on these platforms – or choose not to make money on it at all.

Whichever option you go for, it won’t stop me from making my money. So it is up to you to start making money from these platforms. Because of the plenty requests, I have created a WhatsApp group to teach people how they can make money from all these platforms. So you can see the steps here.

Once you have the right information, I guarantee you that you will surely make money – even within 1 month of starting to sell on those platforms.

Creating a side income is the best way to survive this harsh economy, so what are you doing to live the life of your dreams? You can get started by visiting the link below for more information as to how to get started.

5 Things you need to make money online

Most times I check the type of information that most youths are searching online, and I discover that the particular word “how to make money online” kept on popping up. Most times, I see people asking “can I make money with my phone?”

I am going to be as truthful as ever in this article; to make money online, you must have some certain tools that would enable you to achieve this aim. The truth is that making money online is pretty simple, but you need to have some certain things in place.

So, no need being confused on how to get started; I will show you all that you need in this post. This brings us back to our original topic;

What are the things you need to make money online?

I will list out these things according to their priority, so you can tick the ones you have and go for the ones you don’t have.

A Marketplace

Without a market, you can’t buy and sell; a marketplace is where the transactions take place. It is what would result in an exchange of money from one person to another. The marketplace is practically where the money is made.

When you think of making money online, the first question should be “where?”

Several times we have seen lots of people make recommendations about how to make money online, they end up listing just “where you can make the money” without telling you the other things that you need.
To give you some examples of marketplaces where you can earn, I will list them below;

  • ·         Clickbank – Affiliate Marketing
  • ·         Fiverr – Freelancing
  • ·         Blogging – Content Marketing
  • ·         Aliexpress – Mini importation
  • ·         Empire flipper – Domain Flipping
  • ·         Amazon – Ebook Selling


The truth is that they are so many of them out there, but you need to know where you belong. I can tutor you on Freelancing and Affiliate Marketing on Clickbank if you click here. You can start earning even within 3 days of setting up your system. What is the next thing you need to have to start earning online?

The Information

This is exactly the most important of them all – without the right information, you can’t make money online. The information you need will help you set up your store in the marketplace to attract customers.

Take this information as someone who decides to go into importation, you would need to know the in and out of the importation business. If you don’t have the right information, you will end up accruing losses for yourself.

Most people complain that they don’t make money online; the truth is that they never had access to the most vital information. When it comes to affiliate marketing and freelancing on fiverr, I have the best information. If you need them, you can see more details by clicking here to learn Fiverr Freelancing.

The Equipment

Have you ever seen a farmer going to farm with a pen? It isn’t needed there; the same applies to some marketplaces. When a farmer gets to a farm, he needs things like the hoe, rake, machete, etc.
The same applies to the world of online business; different marketplaces require different equipment.

E.g. on Fiverr, most people won’t tell you that you need to download the fiverr app to be able to secure more clients (you can pay me for this information). That is one secret that they won’t reveal to you. I am ready to reveal more secrets to you if you become part of my students.

Selling Secret

If you decide to go into Garri selling business, there are certain trade secrets that only insider can tell you. The same applies to make money online; whichever marketplace you find yourself, there are sales secrets that you need to know. If nobody tells you about it, you will have a hard time making money on any of the marketplaces.


That is the reason you need a mentor, which is why I am here to guide you on what you need to do to start making money online. I have prepared a lot for all intending students who are passionate about making a living on the internet; make sure you visit the link below to start making money on places like Fiverr and Affiliate Marketing.

Ways to make money as an unemployed graduate in Nigeria

If there is something common among youths in Nigeria, it would be unemployment. Believe it or not, 60% of intelligent graduates that have something to offer the economy are currently unemployed, putting their intelligence to waste.

The question remains, “is all hope lost?”

The end goal of every working class person is to make money, and that is what this post will teach you. There is no gainsaying that once money is made, the means becomes unimportant. This post won’t just teach you how you can make money – whether online or offline, it will show you the step by step process of making money the legit way.

Just before I forget, unemployment isn’t someone without just a job, it is also for people who are currently underpaid. If you are in Nigeria, and your net salary is less than 60,000 Naira, just assume that you are unemployed.

The painful fact about the Nigerian workforce is that the possibility of being in such a position for a long painful period of time. So whether you are unemployed currently or your monthly paycheck can’t fund the lifestyle you wish to have, this post will educate you on all what you need to know.

How can you make money in Nigeria as an unemployed Graduate?

Become an Affiliate Marketer for Companies

Most times I see friends and family recommend people’s product for me free of charge, I know how much they are losing by doing such a thing. A few days ago I saw an advert on Nairaland of a shoe company looking for affiliate marketers. Instead of liking and sharing people’s post for free on Instagram, why can’t you promote that specific advert and make money when someone buys from your promotion?

Affiliate marketing is basically selling other people’s product and making money from the sales. It can be done practically from anywhere, and you don’t need a laptop to become an affiliate marketer. With the phone you have in your hands, you can start selling other people’s product and start making money.

Last month I made $300 in commission – which is about 108,000 Naira selling things from my little home and living my life in the fun. I have explained how I was able to do it – you can see my tactics by visiting this page.

It is up to you to decide if you will follow my path or not. Whichever way, unemployment is a thing of the mind.

Become a Fiverr Freelancer

Last month I got a simple job of writing a “Contact Us, About Us, and Our services pages” of a foreign website. I charged them $140 for writing all of them in 4 days. They promised that if I could finish it in 2 days, I will get an extra $50.

Guess what?

I finished it in 2 days and I was paid $190 – how many people earn that in 2 days? I still have about 6 orders still waiting for me to complete.

What do you think is unemployment?

Unemployment is laziness and not being able to think outside of the box. I can show you thousands of young fellas who are making a living on Fiverr. You think it is overrated, but I will show you proof that I also make money on this freelancing system. I have successfully mentored many others who have replicated the same system I have created, so feel free to visit this page.

So if you are skeptical about taking action, then it is up to you. Unemployment is a thing of the mind.

Perform offline services for people

Unless you didn’t take time to build your skills while in school, there are so many things that you can do. I know of a guy who started running errands for people who were too busy. He started off with people he knew, before extending to people he didn’t know – who came from referrals.

If you look at your surroundings, you will see lots of opportunities offline for you to make money. But the truth is that we have all been programmed to believe that graduates can’t become rich except by working a white-collar job. I just hope the rich Igbo man at Alaba market doesn’t hear this.


Once you are able to find a problem and implement a solution, money will flow in naturally. The first steps is to move out of your comfort zone, then you can have all the opportunities that are available outside.

5 Reasons Everybody Looking For Money Online Should Choose Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing simply defined as an advertising platform in which a marketer is credited for bringing traffic that makes an organization or company’s goods and services to be sold. However, an affiliate marketer is a person who receives a commission on any products sold. The affiliate marketer serves as a link between the company and the customer who is interested in the product. 

Affiliate marketing is regarded as the best online business you can ever engage in Nigeria by some sections of online gurus. This Affiliate Marketing has been simplified in this Affiliate Marketing Secret Guide. Below I will be discussing with you 5 reasons why Affiliate Marketing is the best online business in Nigeria. They include:

1. Easy and Stress-Free

One of the reasons why Affiliate marketing is the best online business in Nigeria is because it is very easy and stress-free to run. In Affiliate marketing, your job basically is just to put up an advert with a link attached to it and that is all.

Whenever a person wants to purchase the product, he/she will click on the product link even without your knowledge and you get your commission from the products sold. If you are the type of person that does not visit the internet regularly on a daily basis, then you will not be affected when you participate in affiliate marketing. 

You practically make money even while you sleep. In some other online business, you have to participate in some tasks while being online before you can make money. If you are also a person who uses affiliate marketing as a source of passive income, you can earn from it online while you engage in your other business. 

Whenever you travel or take a vacation without your laptop or phone, you still make money without visiting the website where your affiliate link is registered in.

2. It is very profitable

Profitability also makes Affiliate marketing the best online business in Nigeria. Each time your affiliate link is being clicked and a product is being sold, you earn commission on the product. 

In Affiliate marketing, there is no limit to the amount of money you can receive, unlike other online business. 

Majority of other online business has a limit to the amount of money you can receive monthly or annually. But in the case of affiliate marketing, your earnings or income are based on the number of traffic you drive into the website where your affiliate link is and the number of people that purchases a product through your link.

So your job as an affiliate marketer is just to drive traffic to your site/link for the product. Other online business basically pays when you participate in some tasks or business.

3. Little or no risk involved

The issue of little or no risks makes Affiliate marketing one of the best online businesses in Nigeria. Unlike other varieties of online business which you are not sure that is legit, affiliate marketing is very much risk less.

Affiliate marketing, fraud is not the order of the day like you will get in other online business. Every transaction done by the affiliate marketer and the affiliate company is secured and nothing can be done by any fraudster to change that. 

In addition, whenever a person purchases a product through your affiliate link, the method by which he/she pays is also secured and cannot be tampered. Despite the fact that frauds are done online easily, affiliate marketing is nowhere near that system. 

4. No start up fee/running costs

Unlike every other online business where you have to start with some reasonable amount of money and also maintain with some cash as well, affiliate marketing is cost free to start up and run. 

The affiliate company/program provides the adverts formats e.g banners, text links to their marketers for them to display on their blog. For example, when you want to start up an online business like forex trading, you would need a lot of money to invest as well as to run in order to make money.

But in affiliate marketing, there is no money required for you to start up as well as to maintain. I explained how you can start without spending money and still make madass profit in this super marketing Secret Book.

5. Maximum control of the online business

Getting full control of any online business makes you happy and confident that you can succeed in it. There are few online businesses which you as an individual take charge of without any partner or assistance. In addition, having full control of any online business means you determine the amount of income you will receive from your works.

Though while participating in affiliate marketing, you are only a marketer. But that does not take away the fact that you still run the business yourself and you determine the amount of money you receive. In affiliate marketing, you can be sure not to get cheated; rather you earn what you worked for.

It is important to note that other online businesses are good and very advisable to venture into, but affiliate marketing is a class above the rest. And that is why this article was written to educate the public on why affiliate marketing is the best online business in Nigeria.

The issue of little or no risks makes Affiliate marketing one of the best online businesses in Nigeria. Unlike other varieties of online business which you are not sure that is legit, affiliate marketing is very much risk less.

Affiliate marketing, fraud is not the order of the day like you will get in other online business. Every transaction done by the affiliate marketer and the affiliate company is secured and nothing can be done by any fraudster to change that. 

In addition, whenever a person purchases a product through your affiliate link, the method by which he/she pays is also secured and cannot be tampered. Despite the fact that frauds are done online easily, affiliate marketing is nowhere near that system. 

4. No start up fee/running costs

Unlike every other online business where you have to start with some reasonable amount of money and also maintain with some cash as well, affiliate marketing is cost free to start up and run. 

The affiliate company/program provides the adverts formats e.g banners, text links to their marketers for them to display on their blog. For example, when you want to start up an online business like forex trading, you would need a lot of money to invest as well as to run in order to make money.

But in affiliate marketing, there is no money required for you to start up as well as to maintain. I explained how you can start without spending money and still make a madass profit in this super marketing Secret Book.

5. Maximum control of the online business

Getting full control of any online business makes you happy and confident that you can succeed in it. There are few online businesses which you as an individual take charge of without any partner or assistance. In addition, having full control of any online business means you determine the amount of income you will receive from your works.

Though while participating in affiliate marketing, you are only a marketer. But that does not take away the fact that you still run the business yourself and you determine the amount of money you receive. In affiliate marketing, you can be sure not to get cheated; rather you earn what you worked for.

It is important to note that other online businesses are good and very advisable to venture into, but affiliate marketing is a class above the rest. And that is why this article was written to educate the public on why affiliate marketing is the best online business in Nigeria.

Affiliate marketing simply defined as an advertising platform in which a marketer is credited for bringing traffic that makes an organization or company’s goods and services to be sold. However, an affiliate marketer is a person who receives a commission on any products sold. The affiliate marketer serves as a link between the company and the customer who is interested in the product. 

Affiliate marketing is regarded as the best online business you can ever engage in Nigeria by some sections of online gurus. This Affiliate Marketing has been simplified in this Affiliate Marketing Secret Guide. Below I will be discussing with you 5 reasons why Affiliate Marketing is the best online business in Nigeria. They include:

1. Easy and Stress-Free

One of the reasons why Affiliate marketing is the best online business in Nigeria is because it is very easy and stress-free to run. In Affiliate marketing, your job basically is just to put up an advert with a link attached to it and that is all.

Whenever a person wants to purchase the product, he/she will click on the product link even without your knowledge and you get your commission from the products sold. If you are the type of person that does not visit the internet regularly on a daily basis, then you will not be affected when you participate in affiliate marketing. 

You practically make money even while you sleep. In some other online business, you have to participate in some tasks while being online before you can make money. If you are also a person who uses affiliate marketing as a source of passive income, you can earn from it online while you engage in your other business. 

Whenever you travel or take a vacation without your laptop or phone, you still make money without visiting the website where your affiliate link is registered in.

2. It is very profitable

Profitability also makes Affiliate marketing the best online business in Nigeria. Each time your affiliate link is being clicked and a product is being sold, you earn commission on the product. 

In Affiliate marketing, there is no limit to the amount of money you can receive, unlike other online business. 

Majority of other online business has a limit to the amount of money you can receive monthly or annually. But in the case of affiliate marketing, your earnings or income are based on the number of traffic you drive into the website where your affiliate link is and the number of people that purchases a product through your link.

So your job as an affiliate marketer is just to drive traffic to your site/link for the product. Other online business basically pays when you participate in some tasks or business.

4 Common Mistakes Made By Nigerian Freelancers That Leaves Them Broke

Who are freelancers? Freelancers are people who are self-employed and does not work for people for a long period of time. They basically work to get paid. In life mistakes are inevitable, but you cannot be successful if you can not learn from your mistakes.

There are several mistakes which a freelancer makes whenever he does business with his clients, the mistakes could haunt him for years to come if not quickly realized. In this article, I will be explaining the kind of mistakes freelancers do make and how they can overcome their mistakes.

1. Doing more jobs than you can handle

Yes, this is a big mistake which majority of freelancers make in this generation. I know we humans need money but that does not mean we should be too greedy. For example, I know of one freelancer that was given a job to do of about writing 15 articles of 1600 words each for a period of 14 days.

The freelancer at that time was doing another job for a different client entirely at that same time. In my opinion, he was greedy to reject the new offer because it was too profitable. He took up the job because of the high amount of money that came with it. On the completion of the job though, he was paid, but the client was far from happy with the job.

The reason, being that the article lacked high-quality content. The freelancer was never contacted again by that client for another job. What I am driving at is that do not ever make the mistake of being greedy. Do not feel like you can handle lots of article writing within a short period of time.

If it is possible, give the job to other freelancers to do. The mistake of delivering low-quality contents or poor job can hamper your career and your future jobs if you are given bad remarks. You can overcome this mistake by accepting jobs which you know you can do well and deliver within the stated period of time.

2. Working without pay

The happiness that comes with being employed to work for a client cannot be put aside. But as a freelancer, you should not make the mistake of having to work for free. This Freelance secret guide I created will help you know how to earn a higher pay as a freelance writer.

There are some clients that will dodge your payments when you have submitted their jobs. The challenging factor is that you cannot sue them in a law court because you have not seen them physically. What then can you do as a freelancer? You must be able to ready yourself for the client's demand.

Ask them for payment in advance before the job is done. This is to show that the client is really trustworthy. Do not try working without discussing how and when you will get paid. Have a dialogue with your client before you decide to work for the person or not.

3. Not fixing the right price

Because of the difficulty in finding a client, you then fix a very low amount of money so as to get the job from the client. I tell you that you are only suffering yourself. If a project costs $40 to do, tell your client that you are charging $50. When negotiation has been completed between you and the client, you both will arrive at nothing less than the stipulated fee of $40. If you decide to put $20, all because you want to secure the job, then you are damaging your reputation as a good freelancer.

In any case, If you are sure and confident your freelancing quality is very high, then set the price that matches your standard. To overcome this problem, always endeavour to be optimistic about being taken for a particular job regardless of the amount that is set.

4. Assuming you know the in and out of freelancing

As a freelancer, you are always motivated to do things which you do not have much idea about because you do not want to look inferior to your client. Moreover, this mistake has made several freelancers lose favours from certain clients. After I showed some freelancers who thought they knew it all the secrets of Fiverr freelancing in this book, they realized that they knew nothing at all. Freelancing is deep, so you should learn from those in it already.

If you do not know how to do a particular job, you can either get educated from those that know it or from the internet. Do not ever try to assume that you know the job very well because you could end up doing what will not be accepted.

However, If you want to overcome this mistake, make sure you seek information from those who are experts in that area and also seeking information from the internet. That will make you educated in that area even when at first you did not have any idea about it.

Like I said earlier, mistakes in life are inevitable. But the challenge is building upon the mistakes and making sure it does not occur again. This article contains the mistakes made by freelancers in Nigeria and how they can overcome it. 

Remember to visit the link below for more enlightenment, especially if you intend to make money from Fiverr as a freelancer.
