Setting Up A Freelance Writer’s Personal Website: Advantages And Disadvantages

If you have some experience in the freelancing market and you want to expand your business, there are many things you need to take into consideration. It might seem simple to have complete control over your work, clients and to manage other jobs, but this means a lot of responsibility for you. There are many aspects to be taken into consideration, and one mistake can lead you to failure. We will help you consider some of the disadvantages and benefits of such a project.

  • Increasing your income. When you manage other people’s jobs, you usually work on commission. This means that every time a client will hire a freelancer through your website; you will take a small amount of money. It seems like nothing in the beginning, but once you expand the income will be substantial.
  • You have a great responsibility. Not only legal, but also moral. There are companies who will invest money in some services through your platform, and you need to find a way to make sure that they get what they paid for. Not all freelancers are honest, so you need a great payment system.
  • Control over your jobs. You do not have to worry anymore about catching a bigger project, because now all the plans that are available come right to you. It can be a great opportunity for you to evolve in your career and to add to your portfolio valuable clients.
  • The legal aspects of this are important. You do not want to wake up in the middle of a lawsuit because people using your website did not manage their business well. To prevent this, you need to hire a strong team of lawyers that will get every aspect covered.
  • Put together your own team of writers. Since many freelancers will use your page, you can choose some of the best to work directly with you for big projects. In this way, you can work with big companies that need daily content and that offer a generous payment for it.
  • You will stop writing. If the writing itself is what drove you to this job, you will be disappointed for the little time you have. Since you need to run such a complex business, you will have little to no time to take care of your own project. You will become more of a manager than a writer.
