How to Make Money Using Freelance Companies

Greeting card businesses are everywhere. In fact, it’s hard to run a successful business without them. In this economy, they are the one of the few businesses remaining in a recession or slow market. Greeting card companies are hungry for your business. But how do you make the biggest splash with a greeting card business?

There are two ways to get a piece of this massive industry: through freelance designs or through online store front. Freelance design jobs are the easiest way to break into this industry because you don’t have to invest a lot of time or money upfront. Simply submit your finished designs to online greeting card companies and wait for your paycheck. Many greeting card companies will accept submissions from artists, photographers, or writers to help make one-of-a kind greeting cards for a fee.

The downside to this method is that you have to wait for your piece to be reviewed by one of these greeting card companies. Also, you must check back often to see if your work is still being accepted. Most writers are on a per project basis with these businesses. If one project is complete, another one is ready to go. So, while you wait you can keep making more copies of your designs and never know if they are being accepted or not.

The other way to get a piece of this booming industry is through online greeting card publishers. Online companies will accept high-quality, unique artwork and images submitted by artists, designers, and professional photographers. When you submit a piece, you submit your entire portfolio, too. If your portfolio is impressive, it will help you land more submissions.

Many online card publishers also give you the ability to upload your works to their website. This allows you to put a digital preview of your card right before the customer reviews it. Then, when they’re ready to choose your design, you can select your favorite piece and send it out for printing. The greeting card companies will use an electronic system to evaluate your work and send you an electronic approval of your piece before you ever see it in person.

The next way to submit your humorous or greeting card creations is to head down to your local printing shops. Most established greeting card companies have stores located in cities with a large Hispanic population. The largest printing companies like VistaPrint and Gossom have branches in almost every large city in the United States. They also have online sites where you can browse their selection of products.

The final option is to use a freelance Web site. Freelance Web sites act as online freelance hubs for talented writers, artists, graphic designers, and other individuals with the ability to provide unique creative solutions to the public. These freelance Web sites enable visitors from around the world to post their requests for writing, artwork, photographs, etc. They can search through a database of freelance writers, artists, and other professionals to find exactly what they are looking for. There are no hidden fees and completely free submissions. Freelance sites are a great place to find quality works for your greeting card company projects.

In conclusion, you have many options to choose from when you decide to write greeting cards on a part time or full time basis. You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars using a commercial printer to get the message out. Freelance websites allow you to get paid just by sending in your creative efforts. No hidden fees and free submissions are two of the best ways to make money on the Internet today.
