Freelancers may not have the luxury of time in building online communities around their brand and when resources are scarce, just how do you build one for yourself.. minus the help of a dedicated community manager?

Wouldn’t it be great if freelancers get all the rave on the Web? Picture perfect, perhaps.. yet, that’s not really the case. Somewhere, we encounter outraged clients, personal attacks, negative feedback and anonymous bad reviews made by a competitor you out-shined. Just as getting paid on time has become an important goal for any smart freelancer, taking care of your online reputation should be on top of your list if you want to thrive and survive. You don’t have to give someone your business card these days and all s/he has to do is type in your name in the searches. A small slip can cause you – your job. Have you checked out what people said about you lately?

Unlike regular employees who get performance reviews every now and then, just how does a freelancer know that s/he’s already inside that ‘zone’ of success? Career growth, achievement or whatever name you want to call it, each one of us aspires to get there. The challenge here is how do we even know that we did our best and achieved the peak of our performance? To get into that freelancing zone means you’ve made a difference.
