Freelancers all strive to create successful and profitable businesses.

However, as a freelancer it takes more than simply being able to create a product or offer a service to earn that success.

Bidsketch has written a fantastic article that will help you earn more money and create a successful business.

One fantastic way that you can build a successful business is to work more efficiently.

If you can streamline repeated tasks such as invoicing, proposal, and taxes, you’ll have more time to do the tasks that make you the most money.

Create Processes to Work More Efficiently

This might sound counter-intuitive, but bear with me:

Often, the first step in making yourself much more efficient (and increasing your earning potential) is investing some time up front to shore up your business processes.

Time is the most valuable commodity for busy freelancers. There are only so many hours in a day. You’d like to spend at least a few of them sleeping or hanging out with your family and friends.

To earn more, you need to get more work done in the same amount of hours. That’s where better business processes come in.

Every project is different. But there are plenty of steps – things like submitting proposals and billing – common to every project you take on. These repeat aspects of business are ripe to turn into processes.”
