When provided with any need or requirement, any client has majorly three options – either to do it himself, or outsource the same to either a company or freelancers. The write up sheds lights on why hiring freelancers a far more gainful decision than outsourcing the same to large organizations.
1. Eliminate the Middleman
The relationship between a client and free lancer working upon their projects is a lot more personalized and the communication that happens is completely on a one to one basis.
While working with the companies of large organization, a client may not get to talk with the concerned person working upon his project, directly. More often than not it is their instructor or at times the customer care staffs which takes the specifications and communicate the same to the professionals. At certain point in time, the clients may even find themselves talking to receptionists of the large organization while conveying their requirements and in certain unruly conditions the client may even have to repeat their set of instructions again and again over a period of time.
However if the clients choose to hire the freelancers for the same project, the entire communication happens on one to one basis through various popular communication channels like over the telephone lines, emails, skype video chat and etc. This ensures that there does not remain any miscommunication between the client and freelancer professionals, and they both synergize their efforts and work towards successful achievements of goals.
2. Consistency in the Work
You may have observed different cases where the quality of one unit of work differed considerably from the quality of another unit, although it was the same organization working upon the project. Well it is because obviously a large organization employs lot of professionals working upon the various clients’ projects and the availability of the best professional amongst them depends upon their free schedule. It may be possible that more than one professional works upon your project on a pro-rata basis and which may cause the inconsistency in the work that you receive.
However when you hire a freelancer for the project, you can be rest assured that only the professional in question will work upon your project. Thus you can test their samples and select them on various criteria, but once the selection is done, you avail yourself the sincere and regular work of the professional, based on his or her dedicated and consistent efforts.
3. Quick and Reliable Results
Though it is rather popular human adage that hurry makes curry, but in the present world we are often defined by our capabilities to meet the deadlines comfortable well on time and provide with quick and reliable solutions.
If you are looking out for ways to get swift responses, without compromising upon the quality of work, hiring freelancers is the best way out for you.
In a large organization, the work gets delayed. First of all your project will have to pass through the layers of approval at different managerial levels and there may also occur the long and treacherous negotiations. Besides, the large organizations are bounded by time. They have to give their employees leave on holidays and etc. However a freelancer does not have any such stipulations. They can work anytime of the day and put in extra efforts to provide the solutions as early as possible. A leave does not mean a leave for the freelancer, but on the other hand is their opportunity to work extra and secure extra bucks.
4. Conservation of Money and Related Benefits
It is a known fact that organizations have to meet a lot of requirements. They have various responsibilities and all that add on to the over head costs for an enterprise. They have a large office space; there are far too many bills to pay and the investments to maintain the basic standards. In the end, who really face the burns of all these investments? You my friend! The valuable clients of such organizations.
On the other hand a freelancer works comfortable from the home. There are no over heads involved and even if a freelancer would be charging you much less money as compared to the organizations, he or she may still end up earning a lot for his or herself.
5. The Process is Highly Personalized
In the present competitive world, no business can flourish if it exists alone. In fact even in the various departments of the business, there has to be cordial relationships and every flow of work and information must be streamlined in such a way to provide synergized and optimum results for the users.
Working with freelancers gives clients the opportunities to develop a one to one and personal relationship with the professionals working upon their projects. There happens a lot communication and all of it is highly personalized. Unlike big organization, you are not talking to the customer care or related staff, but you get to talk to the professional himself. Developing a personal bond with free lancer gives clients the confidence that there is no any lapse in the communication and each and every instruction is being duly followed with working on the project.
Working with a freelancer gives a client a true opportunity to develop a one-on-one relationship with the person who will be handling their projects. A strong relationship between freelancer and client is beneficial to both. It is beneficial for the freelancer as well, as the improved chain of communication ensures more projects coming his way, along with accolades and acknowledgements. Thus the freelancer feels enthusiastic enough to put in the extra effort and the clients end up getting extra special solutions for their requirements.
