A six figure salary on a monthly basis is probably every middle-class Pakistani’s dream. These individuals strive to do better at their corporate jobs to get in the good books and eventually climb up the ladder and get promoted to better positions in corporate setups that offer bigger salary packages.
It is possible to earn a six-figure salary after working tirelessly for years, but who would have thought you could earn a six-figure monthly salary by staying at home? Well, one such example is Ayman Sarosh, who has earned $15,000 by working on a freelancing website called Upwork within 18 months, which means she makes roughly Rs. 130,000 on a monthly basis.
Sarosh is an internationally recognized freelancer from Islamabad, Pakistan. She risked it all and left her corporate job to become a full-time freelancer in 2009. Today she is recognized by an international payments processing company, Payoneer, as Freelancer of the Year. She believes that for women, freelancing is a better option compared to a 9-to-5 job.
How Can Freelancers in Pakistan Earn Rs. 100,000 a month?
Sites such as Upwork and Fiverr are specially designed for freelancers, where you are required to keep working in order for you to keep your account. These sites have some rules that you must abide by in order to earn. You can start with small projects that pay less amount. These projects can vary; from content writing to graphic design, there are many fields to choose from.
Once you begin working, you must focus on building on the portfolio by providing excellent services and submitting work within the allotted time. Once your portfolio looks good and your previous clients leave good reviews about you on the site, more and more international clients assign you with projects. It depends on how much work you can pull through within a month but on average, if you work 5-6 days a week, 8 hours a day, you can easily earn a 6 figure monthly salary.
Advantages of Freelancing
To Freelance, you only require a running laptop, a running phone, a good internet connection. You can work from home, from a cafe, or even while you’re traveling. You decide your work hours, and you also get to take the day off based on your needs while earning a 6 figure salary.
Upwork and Fiverr accounts are not easy to maintain, so freelancers are encouraged to look for gigs on Instagram, Facebook, and Linkedin. For a freelancer, networking is essential. Make sure you get to know people and they get to know how you work in order for you to land big projects in the future.
