How To Choose Your Freelancing Niche

The freelancing niche is an essential component in starting your freelancing career. When you do not identify your specific freelancing niche, you will be unsure what to offer to your clients, and eventually, nobody wants to hire you.

To newbies who don’t know where to start, here are suggested freelancing niches that you can start with.

Niches you can start with

1. Skills you have prior experience

Talking about the skills with prior experience is all about the skills you already have during your office work. This can be admin skills, real estate broker skills, accounting or bookkeeping, or any other skills you already practice in a corporate setting. You can use this particular skill as your primary service when you start working in a freelancing setup and develop it later.

2. Skills that you know how to render to clients

Start with the skills you know and the skills you can provide to clients even if you haven’t experience in a corporate setup. You know how to do these skills when you are studying or the skills you self-learned on the internet. Samples of the skills are data entry, online research, PowerPoint presentations, and any other related skills.

3. Skills that you are learning in your training

This is about the skills you learn from the training you are taking, whether it’s Social Media Management, SEO, Email Marketing, or any other skills that you can learn through online courses or any freelancing training.

With these three different skills, you can start your freelancing career and later on re-brand. When you have already identified the specific freelancing niche you love to do and feel at ease when delivering it to your clients, you will focus more on that niche. When you are already adjusted in the freelancing world, from there, you can identify your focus niche and grow as a freelancer.
