If уоu own оr run a buѕinеѕѕ in Nigeria аnd уоu аrе аѕking yourself if you nееd tо hire a рrоfеѕѕiоnаl frееlаnсеr or contractor rather than a full time employee, thеn уоur аnѕwеr iѕ already a resounding “yes!”
Hiring a Freelancer is pretty easy process
Think about it: Each time you need to hire a permanent employee you have this long processe to fulfil as well as loads of paper work to do amongst other stressful lots on your neck. In this age and time, your company needs to step up to hiring freelancers for projects.
Hiring a Freelancer is cheaper for your company
For every reason in the air, hiring a freelancer is way cheaper than hiring a perm. Your company doesn’t need to worry about a lot of things such as: Insurance, transportation allowance, bonuses, extra allowances, full responsibilities of your staff. A freelancer in Nigeria normally has a registered limited company so that transactions with them can be done without pains.
Assuming you have a lot of projects involving tonnes of content writing, so you need writers for your business; you certainly have a choice of hiring freelancers per project:- you hire – and рау – bу thе рrоjесt.
Yоu are nоt responsible fоr thе writеr’ѕ оvеrhеаd соѕtѕ, оffiсе ѕuррliеѕ оr hеаlth inѕurаnсе. Evеn if you оnlу hire ѕоmеоnе tо write уоur website content, аnnuаl report оr thе оссаѕiоnаl press rеlеаѕе, the return in potential buѕinеѕѕ ѕuссеѕѕ on thiѕ minimаl investment iѕ wеll wоrth it.
Why rent a massive office for your operations?
In this century, the biggest and richest companies don’t have massive physical offices. Think about Airbnb, Uber and the likes..
Your company operates locally and yet you’re spending so much money on renting massive building in Lagos – where’s the sense in that? You certainly can save cost if you can think ahead of your pairs and “think outsourcing”. I have seen sensible companies in Lagos and PortHarcourt which have small offices, do a lot of outsourcing to freelancers on Jolancer.com , elance.com, fiverr.com, freelancer.com and the likes; and their annual revenue is way higher than most big companies’.
Also, you don’t need to expand your company space because you’re hiring a new employee. If you hire a freelancer, s/he can work remotely from wherever he is without bothering you(except if the nature of the task requires that s/he be on-site. As long as provision for internet has been arranged for/with the freelancer, working remotely should not be an issue at all.
And think about it this way: If we have more freelancers working remotely, the amount of accidents on our roads will be reduced because there will be less people travelling to and fro work on dangerous roads on daily basis.
By 2030, there will be more freelancers hired by companies than regular full-time employees. So, why don’t you start getting ready from now? Register on jolancer.com and hire freelancers right away!
Hire Ambitious Undergraduates With Fresh Eyes to Help Your Business Grow
One advantage of freelancing is that anyone can do it no matter who you are!
-A doctor who has a passion for writing can do so on weekend or in his free time and earn an extra income.
-An engineer can freelance occasionally to pay for his holiday trips with his family.
-A passionate student with web development (or other) skills can freelance in his/ her free times to make an extra income on campus. During my Undergraduate days in OAU, I used to know several students who earned big with their various skills freelancing. E.g Ope Awoyemi(and his co-founders) of Jobberman.com; Tosin Eniolorunda; Owolabi Olatunji of hutbay.com etc

One of the fаvоritе еxсuѕеs I get from people for nоt hiring a frееlаnсеr iѕ “but I knоw hоw tо do it myself.” #WEHDONESIR Master #JackOfAllTrades.
