What Is Digitalization?

Digitalization is a term used to describe the way in which the world is quickly transforming from traditional methods into digital ways. For example, before the internet traditional marketing was prominent in newspapers & magazines. Today, many brands have online blogs where you can access articles and magazine columns – making it easier to target a larger audience. Digitalization can also be seen in how apps like YouTube and Netflix are key players in the entertainment market – less people are watching ordinary television channels.

A major driver of digitalization was COVID-19 as people had no other choice but to connect via online platforms. The digital channels used certainly converted many people into a habit of using social media/digital devices more. Even the older generations such as the ‘baby boomers’ who grew up using no internet quickly adapted to using platforms such as Facebook and WhatsApp.

An Introduction Into Freelancing

The internet and technology have changed the way the world operates. Beforehand, people were programmed to believe that you had to work in office in order to make a salary. Free lancing, is a popular way in which people can earn a living but work remotely. This comes in many forms such as blog writing, article writing or creating any type of content. It is a creative and independent job role which suits the lives of many people.

You may be familiar with the different types of freelancers who travel and work remotely. Many even do so on adventures abroad. The beauty of technology means that many people are able to do what they love whilst traveling the world. If someone before the era of the internet would have thought this was possible, they would never believe you.

A greater variety to more talent presents an external perspective which can help grow your business. You know what they say – two minds are greater than one. With having extra talent, it enables firms to establish a high-performance team quickly. The powerful thing about having both free lancers and employees means that the team can gain transferable skills from each other.

There Are Many Benefits Of Freelancing Such As:

A wider variety to more talent
Access to many specialists’ skills
Cost effectiveness

As free lancers are usually assigned to one specific job role it results in faster results as they are less likely to be juggling many tasks at once. You have the option to employ specialists on a particular role which saves more time training employees on tasks.

How Covid-19 Changed The Work Place

The corporate world has changed more since the beginning of 2020 than it has in the last twenty years. Why? The global pandemic has changed work forces, firms and people in many different ways. A major impact on the way in which businesses view free lancers is the global pandemic. With thousands of people worldwide working from home, employers have become accustomed to using zoom calls and Microsoft teams as a vessel to work with employers. The internet is the gift that has been given to us so that we can connect with people worldwide. It’s a way in which we can educate, spread awareness and work closely with many different nationalities. In today’s world the internet is a vessel for opportunities so that businesses can work towards goals at a faster pace and achieve goals.

However, many employers may believe that it is difficult to find reliable, professional and skilled free lancers. There may be many thoughts which prevent employers from searching for free lancers such as …

How do I find these people?
I don’t have the time
I’m too busy
How do I know for sure if these people are reliable?
Will they deliver the work I need?

We have the solution to all of your concerns….
