How to use Notion as a freelancer

With the power of Notion, you can achieve more than just notes and organising yourself.

If you're a freelancer, we're now going to teach you all there is to know about using Notion the right way according to your needs.

How to use Notion for freelancers

Notion is made for everyone's needs, and when it comes to freelancers, your possibilities are endless. Freelancers can build websites to their needs, and moreover, there are lots of templates to start with.

Let's go in-depth on Notion's freelancing side, step by step.

1. The Notion Freelancer Pack

First of all, you may want to look into the Notion Freelancer Pack that we built exactly for you. There are lots of benefits for you within the Freelancer Pack, and within the pack, there are lots of useful templates, including stuff like:

  1. Proposals
  2. Quotes
  3. Invoices
  4. Follow-ups
  5. Reports

2. Making a freelancer website

Up next, you may want to start a Notion website so you could put yourself on the map as a freelancer.

For that, we've got you covered with the Notion Freelancer Website Builder. Don't worry, that is 100% free!

Build A Freelancer Website In Notion

Your freelancer website can be either simple or more complex. Though, we highly recommend writing the basic stuff about you so that people would get the idea of who you are and what you do.

Here's a 5-step checklist of things that you most likely want to have on your Notion freelancer website:

  1. A short description of yourself as a person
  2. Current job/education
  3. Previous education
  4. Past work experience
  5. Greatest skills

Once you've added these five details about yourself, you could say that your website is complete. After defining this list, you can start worrying about your website's looks.

Hey, actually, there's no need to worry about the looks, because that brings us to....

3. Notion freelancer website templates

As you may know, Notion has the "Duplicate" feature which lets you copy a page to your library of Notion pages. This being said, you might've heard of Notion templates by now.

Separate from the Notion Freelancer pack, we've got a library of Notion templates that covers lots of templates for everyone: from freelancers to photographers, artists and so on.
