Starting as a freelancer

There is no standard definition of a freelancer, but a bid for a definition is:

  • A freelancer is someone with skills and knowledge for sale.

Working solo

It´s like committing oneself to mindset to be a freelancer. As a freelancer you have decided that you work alone and strive in no way to have employees. A freelancer sells herself to create a web solution, a teaching or managing a project.

Kender du ProMatch?

ProMatch er en gratis udbudsportal for DANAs medlemmer, som hjælper dig med at finde mere arbejde og handle med andre selvstændige i dit område.

1. Find og byd på opgaver fra det omkringliggende erhvervsliv
Gå ind på mitdana.dk/promatch hvor virksomheder og offentlige instanser lægge opgaver i udbud til alle DANA-medlemmer. Her kan du byde ind på dem - alene eller i små grupper.

2. Send et godt tilbud ud i netværket - og øg dit salg
Når du opretter et tilbud på ProMatch, gør du din forretning synlig for tusindvis af selvstændige DANA-medlemmer, som måske mangler lige præcis det, du kan tilbyde. Et tilbud kan f.eks. være en konkret rabat på din ydelse.

3. Opret dit eget udbud - og find hjælpen, når du mangler den
Hvis du mangler hjælp til en opgave, kan du også selv lægge opgaver i udbud og få kvalificerede bud fra andre selvstændige. Når du opretter et udbud, efterspørger du dermed selv et konkret tilbud på den opgave, du skal have løst.

4. Lad opgaverne komme til dig
Med ProMatch-app'en får du automatisk besked, når der bliver oprettet et tilbud eller udbud, der er relevant for dig og din forretning. Du vælger selv, hvad der er interessant for dig og du kan altid slå de automatiske beskeder fra igen.
