3. A Solid Web Connection
When I started freelancing, my web connection was OK, no more. Then I moved and ended up on dial-up. Ugh! Doing online research was a slow process, and emailing or uploading completed articles with accompanying images was even slower.
Even today when many of us have high-speed broadband, internet connectivity can be patchy depending on the service or weather conditions.
I recommend you spring for the fastest web connection you can afford. It will make the rest of your freelancing life work better.
Recently, I was interviewing a client on Skype, and the call was crystal clear with no dropouts. I was grateful, because I remember the days when you never knew what would happen on any call.
The smoother the experience for the person you’re talking to, the more professional you look. That’s why investing in superfast internet is good for business.
