Entrepreneurship, a term almost all of us are aware of. As per the Oxford dictionary, entrepreneurship can be defined as “the activity of making money by starting or running a business.” So, the idea of what this term is is pretty clear. Now, entrepreneurship can be divided into a number of categories based on the origin, basis, working and what not. And the one we are going to talk or discuss here is content-based entrepreneurship. So, what exactly is content-based entrepreneurship and how does it work? Well, the answer is simple and the examples can be seen all around us; be it Youtube or Instagram or blogs or websites whose USP is content (of various kinds, ranging from daily news to viral content to new trend to fashion to comedy, etc.). Content yet again can be of any type, articles, listicles, videos, photographs and everything and anything as such. There are a number of questions out there and today we will be dealing with the Dos and Don’ts, and maybe, while talking about those points, we might end up discussing the other questions and their answers as well. Let’s start with the Dos- Know your content This is something an entrepreneur needs to understand before making it big in the content based market. Before starting a business, say a website, you need to understand and know what kind of content you want to publish and present. You cannot just start posting anything you like and make a business out of it. Like any other business, content-based entrepreneurship needs a certain discipline. You can get a number of examples where a large content based company has been completely shut down just because of they up the wrong content. Target the audience Every content based entrepreneurship has its own share of the audience. You cannot just force anyone to be a part of your business. Say you have started a YouTube channel for fashion and makeup or anything as such, so your target audience would be women or men who are interested in this field. Or say, you want to make a website with viral content or jokes or memes, your target audience would be youngsters. So, research thoroughly and know what and where your market is. Promote yourself Now, this is something, I guess, all of us already know. The more people see or read your content, the bigger your business will grow. You can always promote/advertise yourself. If you are a beginner, you can ask your friends and family to support and share. And with time, you can approach bigger brands for the same. Share for share is something almost every content-based company does. Take help, create a team You cannot run a business alone, you would always need a team; a group of people who are going to work as hard as you would. So, make a team, gather the best people you know. One thing that people don’t get is, at times, a fresher is better than someone with experience. They not only are full of new ideas but also energy. So, do not hesitate while asking for help or while creating a team. Be thorough with your content You cannot just put up anything you like. There are millions who are going to see/read/hear your content and it is very important to be thorough with it. Quality is something that matters the most in content-based entrepreneurship. Make it relatable People love it when the thing they are seeing or reading is relatable. You can see a number of successful YouTubers taking content for their videos from the day to day life. The more people relate to your content, the bigger your business is going to be. Be consistent The most important point on this list, to be very honest. Consistency is the key when it comes to content-based entrepreneurship. If you want to grow big, have an audience, have a successful business, you need to be consistent with your work. Let people see and understand that there is this person who’s serious about his/her work and knows how to create. Content creation is not easy but when you are consistent, you not only learn but your quality gets better day by day. And now, the Don’ts- Don’t be biased Never ever take sides without knowing the entire story. Just because you love something doesn’t mean that the other person or the other party is wrong. Learn and know their point of view as well and that is something content creators don’t always understand. You might end up losing a huge chunk of your audience if you stay biased. Do not publish half baked content Do not, I repeat, do not publish or put up content without knowing everything about it. Half truth or knowledge is dangerous than a full lie. Do not hurt or talk against religion, believes, etc. Just because you are funny or you want to be funny, you cannot and should not make fun of anything people believe in. And here, I am talking in terms of religion. You never know what might trigger your audience or what might bring your business down Do not copy People have always praised and uplifted those who have come up with their own and original content. Plagiarism is a plague for content-based entrepreneurship. Be original and do not copy others. Be your own brand. These basically were the most important Dos and Don’ts for content-based entrepreneurship. Remember and know that in the end, content is the king. If you want to earn and grow your business and become an entrepreneur then go ahead. Let words and originality roar.

  How to become autonomous is one of the most common searches or goals we hear today. This is because there are many people with desires to take over their income, manage their own time and have the freedom to do what they like best. “Do you work from home? Without a boss? What a delight! “… Answers like these are often heard when people ask me what I do and my answer is simple: I am a freelancer. Yes, yes, I actually work and  earn money from home , I do not have a boss, I manage my time as I see fit, I travel when I want, I do not get up early to take a bus, and if I feel like taking a nap after lunch I just do it … In short … learning how to become autonomous has many points in favor. But in this not everything is rosy. Why? Basically – and this happens mostly at the beginning – because it is hard for you to adapt to the idea of not having a salary and you wonder how you are going to assume your responsibilities, or because sometimes you do not know where to start or how to “sell yourself”. How to become autonomous in a successful way Learning how to become autonomous is not a simple job; On the contrary, it is a path of great work and personal effort that, today, I appreciate being doing. Not only because I have the fortune to choose the job I really want to do and not the one I am imposed on, but because it has helped me to reinvent myself and discover passions that I did not even know I had. But how have I managed to survive without dying in the attempt to be freelance? Based on my experience, I wanted to share these 10 tips that will be useful for you not to falter in the search of how to become autonomous. Save what you can most If you currently have a job and are thinking about taking the step towards work independence as a freelancer, this is a great recommendation: Learn how to save money, at least 30% of your salary (if you can do more, much better) and put it in savings account that you never touch. This will be a capital that will help you pay for your expenses during the first months while you discover how to become autonomous. Once you start getting jobs, do the purpose of continuing with this saving. It may be difficult at the beginning and you do not have how to do it, but once you start to turn the wheel, do it! Determine how much you want to earn and put a price on your work I am not an expert in finance and am much less bookkeeper, but to put a price on my job, worked for me the next plan. Investigate the market Find out how much professionals in your professional field charge, as well as how much companies pay for the work you do. You do not pay the same for programming a web page, for writing an article of 500 words or another of 3000 words, or for designing a logo. In the search for how to become autonomous, a lot of research must be done to get an idea of how the market is doing. Define an income goal Establish what your income goal will be and determine how much work you need to do to achieve that aspiration. Having an objective of this type is fundamental to define how to generate new income. The process of how to become autonomous requires that you take into account, within your salary aspiration, what you must pay within your social contributions, such as health, pension and, hopefully, layoffs. Define how much your work time is worth In case you go charging for hours, calculate how much your man/hour is worth. This mathematical exercise is very basic (again, I am not an accountant or financier), but it gives you an idea: take as a reference the gross amount of your last salary and divide it in 30 days. Knowing how much your working day is worth, divide it in 8 hours and voilà … you will have an estimate of how much your work time is worth. When you decide to work as a freelancer, virtual assistant, or independent worker, you are given the opportunity to be known throughout the world. If you want to offer your services in another country, keep in mind that each market is different. Do not expect them to pay you the same, and for the same job, in Colombia, Argentina, Mexico or Spain. Do not give your work, or do it at “egg price” It is surprising to see how many self-employed workers perform jobs for absurdly low prices or even for free. Should you do the same when you are looking for how to become autonomous? The answer is no. Do not think, even if you are starting, that you have to give away your work to get a client or that you should charge much less than what you set. HOW TO GENERATE INCOME BY WRITING Of course, everything is susceptible to negotiation and in this, there is always a constant pull and loosen, but it does not mean that you must deliver everything without receiving anything in return. It is better that you dedicate efforts to satisfy a good client who pays you just and not that you wear out with those who pretend you do everything at “egg price”. Being independent does not mean that others can think that you do not have economic aspirations. Your work and time are worth, so charges without it! Use your contacts and do an intense marketing job: Much of the success at the moment of becoming autonomous is in how contacts are used. Have you thought that maybe many people you have worked with may be needing your services, or can they recommend you to someone? Take advantage of all those known and tell them what you do; In other words, do the marketing yourself, position your personal brand, “sell” and remind them that you are there. I assure you that more than one will say: “Look, a friend is looking for …” or “Let me speak in my company because we are in need of someone like you”. You will be surprised at the power of that voice to voice, especially if your acquaintances know the quality of professional you are. Take advantage of social networks: How to become autonomous requires that the person is made known among the target audience, and for that, social networks are a perfect ally. Here, some points to keep in mind: Make the most of your LinkedIn profile: Remember that being the social network of professionals par excellence, it is practically an obligation to be present in it. Write the profile well, check that you do not make spelling mistakes, ask your acquaintances to recommend or certify your skills, publish your portfolio of work, etc. In the same way, join groups related to your work field, make your contributions and take advantage to promote yourself. Audit what you post on Facebook and Twitter: Be careful with what you post on Facebook or Twitter,  since the personal image you project there will speak of who you are. Make sure that if they look for you there, they get the best first impression. If you prefer, create your own fan page as a professional and dedicate that space only to labor issues and to let you know. In the same way, join groups of freelance professionals because there they share many contents, news of interest and, best of all, business opportunities. Sign up for online platforms: Undoubtedly work from home took the Internet completely and revolutionized the way of working. When you are looking for how to become autonomous, a large number of virtual platforms can be found on the net: Fiverr, Nubelo, Workana, Upwork, or Freelancer, to name just a few that you can join to offer your services as an independent. Investigate several of them and understand well how they work and the work dynamics they offer you. I do not tell you that you have to be at all (you would not have time), but I do recommend that you, at least, be part of two. Be constant and persistent: If you are looking to become autonomous in a virtual platform, the key to success, and to succeed in the job, is perseverance and perseverance. It is normal to take a long time until someone trusts you and assigns you your first project. This, believe me, can be really frustrating. So you must have patience. How to avoid losing patience, in the beginning, looking for clients: – Do not give up when you see that your proposal was rejected. Cheer up! Check how you are presenting yourself and selling your service offer. – Every day (yes, every day) review what new projects are available and send proposals. If you want to see results, you have to insist on the maximum and persist in the search. Rest assured that at some point, something happens. – Be aware that achieving results and making money online takes time. You may be lucky and achieve your first project quickly but, from experience and from what I know of other self-employed workers, I know that this takes time. – The positive side is that once you achieve it, it is easier for other potential customers to believe in your professionalism and hire you, thanks to the qualification and comment that that first client left on your work. Do not stop learning: The market for independent workers is so big that, yes or yes, we are obliged to stand out from the competition and get to the level of what the market is demanding. Take advantage of the possibility of opportunities and manage the time at your leisure and take the opportunity to complete the program, photography or design course you wanted to do some time ago. Look for online or face-to-face short courses that certify your skills. Update yourself, renew your knowledge and learn new things that will help you complement your work and broaden your work perspective. Remember that companies request more and more comprehensive and versatile profiles. Discover what you’re good at: One believes that knowing this is simple and even obvious, but the truth is that no. For this, it is essential that you find your purpose in life. Do you know how to write very well? Do you translate to other languages? Are you a master in illustrator, who can design designs for printing business? Are you an incredible strategist? Do you design with great creativity? Do you run a computer program that only a few know? Find your pros and strengthen yourself more in that and determine how to start facing your cons. Take advantage of these weaknesses to learn and diversify your service offer. Set hours and be disciplined Even if you do not have a boss, and you do not have to arrive at an office at 8 in the morning, get it in your head that your work is serious and that you also need to be strict with yourself. Learn how to get up early and start working, keep your word with delivery times to which you commit and set a work schedule. If you are not organized in this, you will end up working overtime (it has happened to me) or, sacrificing the weekend that you want to use so much to rest (it has also happened to me). Final advice: Do not listen to those who think that because you work from home, you do not work or do nothing. I always say that the freelancer’s life is a daily struggle. For me, it has been a pleasant struggle thanks to which I have grown personally and professionally and I have learned a lot. How to become autonomous is a job that requires perseverance, perseverance, a lot of strength, patience, and discipline. A yes if you are someone who can not get out of bed, or you’re a couch potato or do you think that work will fall from heaven like manna without much effort, this is definitely not the job for you. Are you part of the group of people who, like me, make a living as a freelancer? Do you have any other advice not to die in the attempt that you can share? I’m sure I do not know all of them.
