Here are my top 5 reasons why I use / used freelancers extensively in my business:
1) FREELANCERS ARE ACTUALLY FREE-MINDED LIBERATED PEOPLE
They are not in any Shackles of the company they work for hence they put their better than best foot forward and think out-of-the-box .They work more as a team member on an event rather than Miss Z from Zenith Securities.
2) FREELANCER CHARGE YOU PROJECT WISE
Which gives you a very clear budget of what we are going to spend and the benefit –TIMELINE ,for example if we hire a choreographer for a wedding she will be hired for 8 classes per month for 3 months
Which we then put aside for her Or if we hire a “personal bride manager “ we know when the manager needs to come in and when the manager is not needed anymore.
3) FREELANCERS ARE ARTISTS
They are better at ideating and if you know the best qualities of the freelancers you can actually handpick the one best suited for your occasions, and hence enhance customer experience.
4) FREELANCER CAN BE USED TO ADD THE EXTRA DASH OF SEASONING TO YOUR EVENT
For example you hire a photographer for an event or a wedding ,engagement ,they will be very pre-occupied with capturing the mains, the bride the groom, the posing, the uncles, the aunts. Here is when a freelancer can save the day for the couple,so we hire a FREELANCE CANDID PHOTOGRAPHER.
5) FREELANCERS SAVE US FROM EXTRA PERMANENT HIRING
Saves us from many permanent hiring and we rely on the talent pool which is available in the market. It helped me juxtaposition my business more towards designing and as for the management part I depended mostly on freelancers. They help me breath easy and take a big big burden off my chest !!
So clearly I approve of this style of project based hiring.
