How to Build a Business Using Freelancers

Jun 25th 2012 at 6:30 PM

Wow, I didn't know that imfaceplate has all these features and cool stuff in it. Great job, it looks awesome. Anyway, I see that I have 5 followers here. Hi guys.

This is my first article here and I'm trying to get my head screwed on my shoulder's right now.

how to build a business using freelancers

The thought of learning how to build a business using freelancers has been grappling my mind for the last 30 days. It has taken hold of my very existence to the point that before I go to sleep, that thing, that process is on my mind. When I wake up, the first thing on my mind is how I could put in practice the thoughts that I've written so much about.

Why? Because I believe that I could build a startup.

Everybody could build a startup.

Even Im.faceplate is a startup.

Transitioning from fab to needed

The truth is, anybody who is driven enough could build a startup, promote it and make it seem like the next big thing. They could knock on the doors of venture capitalists to give them that extra boost in cash so that they could continue doing the things that they do.

But the real deal is not in venture money, it is not in capital infusion or stock options but in transitioning from fab and awesome to becoming a necessity. People should wake up and go to you the first thing in the morning because they not only find something extra special in doing so, they have to.

Facebook is not just a social network, it is more compellingly "the father who is overseas seeing his baby's eyes for the first time". It's about friends we've made in the past and them moving on to a distant place. It is about human connection. That pulsating need that pulls on the heart strings of people.


Freelancers take on a supporting role during, before and after this transition. You could start with the framework. Some freelancers actually help businesses build the very core of any startup. True, it may only be a segment of the original project, but their outside role is crucial nevertheless.

Along the way you hire virtual assistants to help you with anything. They take on your more menial tasks so that you could exert all your valiant efforts. Some of them promote your project on social media with an unsurpassed zeal. Yet more of them write with the fervor of firebrands.

But more than these menial tasks, freelancers can take on the creative input and mesh this into creative output. Yes, we are creative too.
