Basically, this is an alternative type of employment in which that person wants to work without enlisting himself/herself under a company or brand. They get work through various sources and perform a variety of tasks.



Why LinkedIn?
Here is where LinkedIn comes into the picture. It is the best digital marketing application or site of today. There are hundreds of companies that are running Ads for employment and recruitment, this gives the perfect opportunity to the freelancers to develop a connection through LinkedIn and get business.

So, this next step can be called creating a presence on the digital platform.
