Being an artisan has its unique rewards. You can express yourself creatively, use your skills to serve others, and potentially make a living doing something you love. But freelancing also offers some more tangible benefits that make it an attractive option for many artisans. In this blog post, we'll discuss the opportunities freelancers have to take advantage of free advertising and posted videos, the flexibility to work at their own pace, control over their earning potential, and little or no overhead costs associated with having a brick-and-mortar business.

Free Advertising and Posted Videos 

Freelancers have unlimited access to free advertising and video platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn to showcase their talent. This can be done in creative ways so that potential customers can get a feel for the type of art or services you offer. It’s important to note that although these platforms are free, they do require time and effort in order to keep customers engaged with your content. 


As a freelancer you have the flexibility to work during hours that fit your lifestyle; this could include evenings or weekends depending on what works best for you. This is especially beneficial if you are juggling other commitments such as school or family obligations; it allows you to prioritize those commitments while still being able to earn money on your own terms. 

Control Over Earnings Potential 

Another benefit of freelancing is the control it gives you over your earnings potential. When you are working as an independent contractor rather than for someone else’s company, there is no set salary; instead, your income will be determined by how much work you put in and how successful that work is in generating revenue from customers who hire your services or purchase items from you. This means that if you are willing to put in the necessary effort, there is no limit on how much money you can make! 

Little or No Overhead Cost 

When compared with running a brick-and-mortar business, freelancing typically requires little or no overhead cost—no rent payments for office space or physical shopfronts—so it’s easier for artisans just starting out in their careers to break even on their investments quickly while still enjoying all of the perks associated with freelance work. Additionally, if an experience doesn’t quite pan out as expected (e.g., if it doesn’t generate enough interest), there isn’t any debt incurred since very little money was invested in creating it in the first place! 


 Freelancing presents artisans with several unique opportunities that traditional businesses don't offer; including free advertising and posted videos to showcase their talent; flexibility when setting their own hours; control over their earning potential; low overhead costs; and the ability to experiment with new experiences without going into debt. By taking advantage of these opportunities artisans can find success doing what they love while reaping all the benefits freelancing has to offer!
