(Disclosure: several authors of this book and its technical reviewer are personal friends of mine.) Once upon a time there was a grassroots group of Web designers and developers called the Web Standards Project (WaSP) that pressured companies such as Microsoft and Adobe to ensure that those companies’ products were more standards-compliant. They were largely successful; although some companies occasionally relapse, most of the time standards are given more than mere lip-service

Starting out in a freelancing career can be tough. Ranging from freelance authors to graphic designers and programmers, freelancing comes with many of the same hurdles. One large aspect is building your personal brand – how do you get people to recognize you for your skills? Thankfully the internet has provided a very simple medium for sharing and obtaining information in a very short time.
Beginner’s Guide to Social Media Branding
The more clients I get, the more amazed I am at the way the world is shrinking as the internet grows. I have clients in the US, Australia, the UK, India, and right here in Canada, on the other coast and within my humble city. I love freelancing, but it’s not something I would choose to do for free – despite what the clients think! I’ve had to explore some of the available ways to get paid, and I’d like to know how you handle this essential part of the business.

Ways to Get Paid Around the World
Until recently, I seemed to prefer to always do things the hard way. If a website needed to be created, I would learn how to code it, populate it, and then publish it. During renovations of my home I learned how to do my own electrical, dry wall, plumbing, and first aid. I nearly had to learn how to handle my own divorce, but luckily that was avoided. We justified learning these things ourselves in order to offset the cost of paying someone else to do it, but in retrospect, this is probably a backwards way of looking at things.
If you have read The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris , you won’t be surprised by the number of things that you can have a virtual assistant complete. If you haven’t read his book – go read it – but until then, here’s a quick list of some of the things you can have a virtual team perform. Invoicing – create invoices to send to your clients Invoicing follow up – contact your clients that have been delinquent in their payments Research – assign the task, go to bed. When you wake up, the information is sitting in your inbox. It’s like magic.

I often find that when I invest in my freelance career, I experience a boost, whether it’s in ideas, time management skills, or actual, y’know, money.
When NOT to Invest in Your Freelance Career
So you don’t have a lot of cash or a lot of time to save, and even if you did, no one in either family could afford to travel to a destination wedding if you planned one. Don’t lose hope! Isn’t the next best thing to create a fun version of your dream destination in your hometown (or wherever you’re doing it away from the actual destination you desire)? Maybe you pictured having a beach or tropical wedding followed with a casual, “kick off your shoes” reception with palm leaves and drinks in coconuts

How many times have you heard the old fable, the tortoise and the hare? Slow and steady wins the race. Right…. From what I’ve read here on FreelanceSwitch, it seems like most freelancers are hares – but they are frequently running more than one race at a time. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m in this camp, and I know that this isn’t necessarily a good thing. Whether my deadline is tomorrow or next Tuesday, I find a way to hit it, and sometimes I think it might be the panic factor that promotes the creativity.

Corporate branding agencies have long valued the creation and use of Corporate Branding Standards Guides , or something lofty sounding like that. The idea behind the tool, often created as 400 page, richly illustrated books, was to communicate all the ways that the identity elements associated with the brand could and could not be used. This workhorse is often used by internal and external sources alike
