Reliability is one of the most significant characteristics a freelancer must have. If you are keen enough in getting more gigs, delivering them and increasing your freelancing rates, you must have the drive to over-deliver and under-promise on a regular basis. Get started by following some of the steps below:
Determine a Deadline
It is important to determine deadlines ahead of time so that you and your clients will know when to finish the tasks. Keep a calendar or sign up for a project management software to monitor your activities and predict an accurate project timeline.
Organize your Work
There are many ways to organize your work. It does not matter if you use an online tool or a handwritten notepad. What matters most is creating a system that works for you and making use of it to manage your work effectively.
Never Miss a Deadline Unless There’s a Very Good Reason
Missing a deadline is never good. Always work ahead and never let things pile up. Give yourself a proper breathing space and do not let yourself be pressured. In any case that you are not able to deliver – be honest and inform your clients ahead of time so that they can prepare a plan B.
Make it your goal to never miss a deadline!
