Please Whitelist This Site?

I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)

Please think about the value you get from this free site, and consider adding it to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on freelancingguide.net". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||freelancingguide.net^$document". Then just click OK.

Thanks for your understanding!

An Overview of Internet Freelancing Proposals

I found this to be a difficult section to write. It wasn’t because I didn’t know what freelancing proposals were, of course: I’ve composed hundreds of them. But before starting in on this Guide, I’d never actually taken a step back to think about them in general terms. There’s a big difference between understanding something and being able to explain it. Most guides to freelancing gloss over the basics of proposals, only handing out specific tips. I’ve provided tips and suggestions for you as well, but I felt it was important—especially for new freelancers—for me to define and describe what proposals are all about from the ground up.

John F. Kennedy once said that we chose to go to the moon not because it was easy, but because it was hard. And so, while this is hardly rocket science, I’ve endeavored in this section to lay out for you what proposals are all about in a way that will help you understand them. :) This begins with an overview of their main objectives, and an attempt to help you see proposals the way clients see them. The section then describes what your proposal should contain in order to explain to the client how you’ll do the work, and also why your proposal should be selected. And it concludes with a reminder of the importance of keeping the implied promises in your bid.
