STOP. WAIT. THINK…
Because we are going to come right out and say it...There is a Serious Perception in Australia that “Freelancing is a Cheap Option for Outsourcing.” Why hide the fact? Were you seriously wanting us to state this fact at the bottom of this content piece?!
No! Because we want to tackle this problem head on from here moving forward!!
Let’s Begin: Without further hesitation here is Definitive Reasons Number 1 as to why you Absolutely Must Change Your Perception of Australian Freelancing right now!
1) Australian Freelancers are Highly Skilled and Highly Trained
Do You Honestly Believe Australian Freelancers take up “Freelancing” because they have no other job option??
Do You Honestly Believe Australian Freelancers take up “Freelancing” because they don’t care about the money??
Do You Honestly Believe Australian Freelancers take up “Freelancing” because they seriously have a lack of skills?!
Because No, No and No is the Answer – it’s time for you to wake up and smell the roses!
Because Australian Freelancers are Highly Educated, Highly Trained and Ultimately Highly Skilled.
Yeah that’s right! You know the story…
Go to school, do a bit of uni and go out into the workforce and get a job…Get some experience… And All of That Jazz??
Well believe it or not Most Australian Freelancers have been through all that. They have a solid education (having done their schooling / uni), they have acquired solid experience in the workforce (having worked there for many years) and as a result…Developed Some Serious Valuable Working Skills.
What Happens One Day? These people get up one day out of bed (really tired) and decide they totally do not want to do their drop-dead-boring-job anymore and quit within a month (with notice) and then dive into the realms of The Australian Freelancing World!
Yeah you heard us right. The majority of Australian Freelancers did not come down in the last shower.
They generally have not jumped into Freelancing straight from school. They generally have not jumped into Freelancing straight from uni. They generally have not jumped into Freelancing straight from the workforce.
Because Australian Freelancers Have Generally Acquired Years of Experience, Skills and Training in Order to Make the Leap from the Workforce into the...Serious “Skilled” World of Australian Freelancing.
Many Australian Freelancers have chosen “Freelancing” because they have totally “Seen the Light” and want more value, flexibility and diversity in their job role on a day-to-day basis. They want serious autonomy and have taken drastic action to get this autonomy by quitting their drop-dead-boring-day-job!
Have Your Perceptions Changed at All Now About the Skills of Australian Freelancers? Maybe Just a Little? Or is it a Lot?? Whatever it is – Make our words…Australian Freelancers (are in the main) Highly Educated, Highly Trained and Highly Skilled.
In Plain English What Does this Mean for You? They can provide you and your business serious “Skill Value” that cannot be matched or beaten in the Australia’s diverse labour force.
The Proof? Australian Freelancers have most often been there and done that! When you have been there and done that (we are talking the workforce here) you develop serious skills that should never be underestimated.
What’s the Bottom Line for You? Don’t think “Australian Freelancing”= Less Skills = Less Money you Ultimately will Have to Pay the Freelancer. Take serious note of all our points above and start changing your perception of Australian Freelancing Today!
Next Up: Let’s talk “Specialisation” – because Australian Freelancers are True Specialists in Their Field!
2) Australian Freelancers are True Specialists in Their Field
Nobody is going to Google search these days and entering “find me a jack of all trades that can help me with x, y and z!”
Yes, we are exaggerating…But you get our point!! We totally live in a World of “Specialisation” and is it always Specialists that go further and soar places far higher in their long-term careers.
The Best News for You??
Australian Freelancers have been there (uni) and done that (the workforce) – meaning they are “True Specialists” in their Field and have a tremendous amount of expertise, skills and value to offer you and your business.
They may have started out as jack of all trades “Generalists” (like many) but by acquiring years of experience they develop a broad and diverse skill base – and ultimately draw on this broad and diverse skill base to “Specialise” in one particular area that they are best at (and often enjoy the most).
Even Better News??
The Australian Freelancing landscape is totally set up and orientated for Freelancers to do only what they are best at (specialising in that particular field).
Unlike Jobs: where you often just must do whatever task is thrown at you – Australian Freelancers are encouraged (on various Freelancing Platforms) to develop “Specialist Profiles” and only specialise in one or two particular areas.
Clients (like you) browsing freelancing sites tend to enter a “search query” or browse by category – therefore Australian Freelancers know there is more than enough demand for their services on these sites – they know they just need to stand out from the crowd with their specialist Freelancing profiles.
But The Ultimate Best News for You and Your Business?! When you choose a “Specialist Australian Freelancer” you are choosing an outsourcer with the ability to get your job done faster, more successfully and ultimately with greater results.
On the Other Side of Coin: If you go with a “Generalist” then you will need to spend more time “babysitting them” in terms of general training, hand-holding and constant back and forward to get to the desired result. Because not only do “Specialists” get your business better results short, mid and long-term – but they became a true long-term asset for you and your business.
No Client (like you) enjoys constantly searching for new Talent (freelancers) for every single new job – they much prefer working with the one person again and again.
Start Getting Things Right…
And that Again Starts with your Perception of Australian Freelancers.
From Today Start Viewing them as True Specialists in Their Field Rather than Another Cheap and Alternative Outsourcing Option!
OK that wraps up Why Australian Freelancers are True Specialists in Their Field. Is Your Perception of Australian Freelancing Starting to Change? Even Just a Little?? Good!!
Because Next Up and Finally: Let’s talk “The Big Picture” – because Australian Freelancers Should Not be Underestimated Because they Totally Get The Big Picture!
3) Australian Freelancers Totally Get The Big Picture
Aussie Freelancers (in the main) are Totally Big Picture Thinkers and we Mean Totally!
In Fact: “Big Picture Thinking” is Immersed and Engrained within Australian Freelancing Culture.
Much more so than other Cultures (in our very unbiased opinion!). We have already told you (and hopefully changed your perception) that Australian Freelancers are Highly Skilled. We have already told you (and hopefully changed your perception) that Australian Freelancers are True Specialists in their Field.
Now we are 100% Categorically and Adamantly telling you (that because Aussie Freelancers have these 2 qualities) that they are Naturally Big Picture Thinkers as well!
Why Are Big Picture Thinkers Critical to You and Your Business? Big Picture Freelancers Always Get More Work Done and More Work Done Faster!
Because: Not Only do Big Picture Freelancers Get Work Done Faster but they Require Much Less Relationship Building Time and Much Less Training.
Less Training = Less Babysitting = Getting Seriously More Done!!
Big Picture Freelancers that Work Smarter Not Harder! This Means as a Client You Need to Invest Less Overall Money, Invest Less Overall Training Time and Ultimately Meet More of Your Critical Deadlines!
Doesn’t it (therefore) make sense to Reward Australian Freelancers well for Working Smarter Not Harder?! Think about that one! And we mean think about that one Seriously a Lot!
Higher Skilled, Higher Experienced and Ultimately Big Picture Freelancers: Ensure that Not Only Your Project is Successfully Completed but that is Optimally Completed and Achieves the Best Result Possible!
In Plain English: Why would you “Cheap Out” with an Australian Freelancer that gets you, gets your project, gets your business goals – and ultimately gets the very biggest picture??
You need to reward Australian Freelancers “Financially” in order for them to execute your tasks to your perfection. Remember “Australian Freelancers” are part of the workforce too and have families to feed just like you! By “Cheaping Out” you are not Motivating the best talent to help you on your important project and develop the very best results you acquire.
BIG PICTURE FREELANCERS ARE TRULY A DREAM FOR YOU AS A CLIENT!!
So, don’t you dare “Cheap out” with them…yes, we are totally Challenging your Perception of Australian Freelancers again!
By Hiring a “Big Picture Freelancer” on Local Freelancing Website (like Ours) and Paying them What They are Worth: You are Far More Likely To Get a Devoted and Attentive Freelancer that Will Not Only Meet Your Deadline/s but Ensure You Achieve the Results You Are After as a Client!
CHEAPING OUT LEADS TO SLOWER RESULTS AND ULTIMATELY FAILURE.
Now we have got all of that out of the way. Ready for our Wrap-Up?? Here it is!
