Five reasons freelancers rock
Our work hits the right notes
When you hire a freelancer, you need the work – in my case the copywriting – to be right first time. I’m happy to take on board comments and work with you in a true partnership – which sadly isn’t always the case for some more precious personalities. Ultimately, I think a collaborative process is best for all involved. After all, if you’re an account manager, the chances are you’ve had direct access to the client so you’ve already walked a mile in their shoes, seen inside their brains and so on and so forth. No clichés here, honest.
Simply put, we work hard
As a freelancer, I know I’m only as good as my last job. If I don’t do good work, I won’t get invited back. So I always put as much effort as possible into every job – and not just because I want repeat business, but because I love it. I take pride in my work and that’s probably why I love freelancing. I’m not one for water cooler chat as I don’t like to waste time. It interrupts the thinking process too much. And while I might look like I’m staring out of the window at times, really it’s all going on inside. But my face does look funny when I do this, so it’s worth getting me in just to see that.
You don’t have to take us to the Christmas party
If I get an invite, I’m there with bells on. But I won’t expect it. And my skin is thick enough if you want to talk about your night up the Shard. I can handle it. And I’ll even be a confidant when you want to tell me that really ‘bad’ thing that happened that you just can’t keep inside…
We will always laugh at your jokes
This makes me sound a bit disingenuous, but actually it just means that I’m grateful if you even speak to me. I know that I’m there to work hard and get on with the job in hand. So, like the Queen, I know what to say and crucially, when to stop. But really, I’m happy to have people around me, because when you often work at home and you’ve been asked to help out, you’re usually just happy to be there. Does that sound a bit too desperate?!
We don’t take up much space
Sometimes I work with my laptop in tow, sometimes not. I’ll sit wherever you put me and I only use a bit of electricity. And a few tea bags. I don’t cost you National Insurance, sick or holiday pay or in many cases, lunch breaks. In fact, you’ll hardly know I’m there. Except when it matters.
