Why Freelancers Are Changing The Internet

Why Freelancers Are Changing The Internet


The freelancer is the new job trend for the new Millenium. Much like engineers to the mechanical revolution, the tech (and more recently, the mobile) revolution rely on freelancers of various skills to propel itself forward.

Apple and Microsoft have full-time employees like engineers, marketers and other people in different fields, but when we are talking about the Internet and tech industry, on the whole, most of its innovation, content, and coding is done by passionate freelancers.

We’re seeing the same thing with mobile. Most app companies are started by entrepreneurs who worked as freelancers to get their start. In fact, freelancing jobs could be called “personal incubators” for young entrepreneurs, who are lacking in minimal capital to start a small business

And when those businesses are finally financed, they look towards outsourcing as much as possible in order to skip on health care obligations, benefits, and office space.

The backbone of The Internet Business

Small and medium-sized business are the ones creating the majority of everything on the Internet. Basically, freelancing is the backbone of those businesses.

Only a fraction of all the news you see on the Internet is written by full-time employees. Almost no blog has the power to hire full-time writers for its entire content.

Design Agencies

Design agencies have loads of talented people working in them, and will probably never die. They’ll keep growing thanks to branching out, offering development services and the businesses need to pay more for something they need.

But the fact is the majority of designers nowadays are freelancers. And they offer the same services or oftentimes better, at a fraction of the cost. 99Designs has thousands of talented designers with over 90 design skill sets.

But the fact remains, small to medium-sized business are now empowered to look like Top 500 Giants!

It’s the small guy with a local e-store who “owns” the Internet. He is the future. It’s he who relies on freelancers to get his site looking like it’s 2019, and not ’95. And it’s the foreign talented freelancer who is making it all possible.

Google Play and App Store

Most of the apps in both giant marketplaces are coming from freelancers or small businesses who rely on freelancers for outsourcing. Yes, there are some bad apps because of this.

But the truth is, that freelancers have created the beautiful virtual app world.

The World is Changing

There’s this small thing called Globalization. It’s the reason some national economies are now dying. Only those fast enough the adapt to globalization and outsourcing stand a chance to thrive.

That’s neither a good or a bad thing, it’s just a shift. Part of the planet’s total GWP (Gross World Product) of around $70 trillion dollars is made up of goods and currency which move through or thanks to outsourced jobs.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 14.9 million U.S. workers were self-employed. Freelancers, outsourced jobs and globalization go hand in hand.

A poorly designed interface for the Internet with few giant apps on the apps market and almost no alternative media, blogs and content from Supertemps would probably hinder connectivity to the point where people wouldn’t want to get online.

That means less knowledge for the masses, less unique, distinct thought processes and less communication. We’d go back in time.

So if you’re a freelancer, be proud because you are the revolution.
