Many of us thinking that why to start freelancing If we have a regular job. Regular job means you have a certain income by the end of the week or at the end of the month.

The question is if you have a regular job then why to search for jobs with freelancing sites, searching clients, send them proposals.  Searching for a new job and so on.

Some are saying if you have a regular job and willing to start freelancing means that you are killing you relax time and are taking some extra responsibility.

It keeps you updated with the market

Freelancing has another advantage that it keeps you update according to the current market needs. While with the regular job you have to do certain tasks with your office and there are fewer chances to improve your knowledge according to the market need.

Learning opportunities

With freelancing, you are not doing a regular job and the nature of the jobs change time to time with different clients.  With doing different nature of jobs you have to learn different jobs and for some different nature of works, you have to study for some time to learn the job.
In this way, you improve your knowledge according to the job. This is again a good advantage of freelancing.

Working with your own hours.

With freelancing, you work with your own hours and no bound to work for certain hours. With regular job the employee has to work for almost 8 to 10 hours daily and has to work according to office hours.

While with freelancing you are not bound to work for fixed hours and you can work in your own working hours.

Freelance provide complete freedom for working hours. You can work 2 hours in the morning and work for 4 hours at noon.

Freelancers can work on multiple projects

Freelancers have the option to work on multiple projects. It not necessary to tell the client that I am working with another client. If a client is close and you feel necessary to tell the client that you are working with another client too.

The chance to get bigger projects with a good budget

There are many chances to achieve bigger projects and you do not need to search for further jobs. Some clients and companies outsource their jobs with good budgets and if you fulfill their requirement and get a good job than you don’t need to search for further jobs.

Some time you earn good amount from certain jobs and you don’t need to work for certain months.

Not bound to work at a certain location

Freelancer does not have the fixed office or certain locations to work. If you are sometimes traveling from one city to another city you can work from reaching another city. By connecting a 4G device form any location you can work and deliver your work done to your client.

Can open your own company online.

Many leading freelancing sites i.e upwork.com, Guru.com and mostly all other companies offer to open your own online companies with them, and with this, you can add other freelancers to your online company and there are a lot of opportunities to enhance your regular income through adding other freelancer and getting more jobs from freelancing sites.

Initially, you start working as an individual and after some time you start adding other workers and at a certain stage, you become boss of your own.

Conclusion

In my opinion, freelancing is good to start work and it gives you freedom chances to gain good budget projects and many other benefits as mention above.

On the other hand, it has some drawbacks like freelance does not cover all other benefits like life insurance, job security, Allowances, regular cash flow, and many others.
I would like to suggest to start freelance carrier with some good freelance marketplaces where I had also start freelance as part-time job those are upwork.com and Guru.com.  If you are more interested with other freelancing sites you can visit  best-freelancing-site-2018-and-their.html  .

Following are some quick steps for article writers or beginners who want to start their career as SEO article writers.

An article having unique content:


Always remember that content is the king, if you have good content it will attract more and more visitors to your site. Keep in mind to make the article informative and useful to the users. The information you provide in the article should be correct and realistic. In starting of the article write some interesting sentences, so the users should not bounce from your site, in this way the visitor will spend more time by searching for other materials on the site.

Use of keyword phrases in the article:


The main objective of writing article to bring the site more visible to search engines, for this purpose use your keywords in a proper way. If you can start the article with your keyword it is much better or you can use your keywords in the first sentence is considered to be a good practice.
Some SEO professionals recommend using keywords for 1 to 3% and some professionals suggest using keywords up to 5% in the article. Search engine picks these keywords for your meta-tags and well as for the content of your site automatically.
I personally try to use keywords for five to seven percent in every article I write.


The body of the article:



The trend has been changed and visitors try to gather their required information in shorter time, visitors prefer to pick certain points from an article and for the same information they not only browse your site, they visit more sites for desire information they want. 
The body of the article, in my opinion, should consist of 1000 to 1500 words enough for the reader to read and scan his required points.


 Check for Spell and Grammar:

The content you have written in your article should be grammatically correct and error free. After you write your article spend some time to re-check it for spelling and grammatical mistakes several times or try to get help from one of your colleague to read it for to find out spelling mistakes or sentence arrangement mistakes. No matter, how much research you have for your article, if it has spelling errors it will not deliver a clear sense to the reader and the most important spelling errors can affect the effectiveness of the keywords you wanted to use.

Conclusion:

Now you can write SEO articles by following the above tips for writers. Writing articles considering the techniques of SEO will lead your site toward success by increasing your visitors. Your article will be unique if you follow the SEO writing techniques because when you provide good content in an article the reader will retain on your site. Use keywords after searching on Google as Google tells you the keywords mostly searched by people. The body of your article should be based on facts and figures. The error-free and grammatically correct article will make the reader satisfy and they will appreciate it.

Highest internet 3G / 4G prices in Gilgit-Baltistan



Now a days we the GB People are connected with the rest of the world with internet with the only one service provider SCO. Since 1976 SCO is providing telecom services to GB and AJK area on need bases.
The future of GB youth is attach with internet facility to get online earning opportunities as there is no any other industry to get jobs quickly. We have the better literacy rate as compare to other areas of the country.  Many other tourism-related businesses are also dependent to internet service in the area.
SCO is recently providing 4G free internet in GB with a limit of 30Mbps / day. With 30Mbps internet we can even cannot check our daily emails this 30mbs automatically utilized by the cell phone to update software. Rather providing 30Mbps free useless SCO should provide other options not free of cost but normal charges as other telecom providers are providing in the country.
Secondly, they have another product named supper card with the limited of 1600mbs equal to 1.6GB for Rs.500 with talk time and free minutes.  This 1600Mbs for a person who is using YouTube and other video downloading sites hardly serves for even one day. Someone has shared on Facebook with this packages he can use internet for three hours. Minor differences are always there with different companies and their packaging but, this is the totally unique package offered by the provider in the area.
We are not demanding free internet in the area, anything free makes the people baggers but SCO should provide internet as on normal charges as other companies are providing. Zong is offering 4GB data at Rs.160 and Telenor is offering 4GB for Rs.90 while with SCO supper card offers only 1600Mbps to its users. You can also check the price at given link and ask your marketing department to review. Similarly
Ufone almost the same.
https://www.zong.com.pk/onlineshop/Exclusive-Offer

Unlike SCO the other telecom companies have different products to its customers some products are weekly bases and some or on monthly.
This is totally useless to those users who are taking help for their online studies and the same for those who are doing online jobs.

As there is worst DSL service in the area provided by SCO. Someone applying DSL connection has to wait for six months or more as there is the unavailability of ports at their exchanges.
Conclusion
It is also the responsibility of the GB Government to provide internet Service and other telecom services in the area if it is not feasible to SCO with normal cost. GB govt. should facilitate and provide funds to other telecom companies for smooth running internet in the area rather providing funds to link road and other areas. Now a day’s internet is the necessity of every individual for his business, studies and other life activities.

To conclude it is our warm request to the SCO top-level management to improve their services and facilitate their customers on a nominal charge. It is also the responsibilities of GB Government to support the SCO and other telecom industries financially as well as at policy level and to allow other telecom industries too to invest in GB.
