What does a freelance consultant or social media manager do?
Social media, digital marketing, a good website and SEO are nowadays just as important to the running or starting of a business as administration and HR. However these tasks do sometimes feel like they are taking valuable time away from what you actually want to be doing, and sometimes even taking over your life.
Once you are released from dealing with these everyday and important tasks, you are free to do what you do best - move your business forward.
A freelance consultant or social media manager is essentially a self employed member of your team who doesn't have to work in your office, although I can, and do work with clients in their offices when they ask or need me to.
I have everything set up from my office at home and can work with clients anywhere in the world.
You set me a task, I complete it. It`s as simple as that. You get an extra pair of hands when you need it, without the cost of taking on a member of staff.
Do I need to pay you a pension or holiday and sick pay?
No. As I work as a freelancer you do not have the ongoing costs of a salary, holiday & sick pay, pension and equipment costs or the expenses of training and recruitment. This saves you money as you only pay me when you need work completing. You don't have to provide me with an office, a computer, or even make me a cup of tea, unless you want to.
