How much does a Freelancer make?
I’ve been asked a lot of times as to how much do I earn from being a freelancer. Nope, I still won’t tell you exactly how much I earn but I will let you know how much a freelancer CAN earn depending on his/her expertise.

More people are now switching from their regular office job to becoming a freelancer. Higher earnings and working from home are the top reasons why more professionals prefer to become a freelancer.

Depending on your expertise, you can earn as much as Php 100, 000 per month. YES you read that right. A freelancer can earn as much as triple her previous salary from an office-based job. Web designers, accountants, SEO specialist, copywriter and social media managers are some of the top paying jobs.

Freelancing salary is different from a regular office job. Payment is based on hourly basis. Rates can start from $5/hour or weekly rate of $100 depending on your expertise. A web designer can earn as much $1000-$1500 per project while a graphic designer can earn $20 per logo at the minimum. Social media managers can have as many clients as they can and earn between $1000 – $2000 per month depending on how many clients one has.

Freelancing can definitely serve as the bread and butter of a family. But it does not come easily, hard work, dedication and integrity is important to last in this business. What I really like about being a freelancer is being able to work anywhere, literally anywhere. I remember I was in Boracay with friends in 2017 and still managed to work. It gives me work and life balance. Plus I have more time with my kids.

Are you ready to be in this business?
