If your freelance gigs have been dwindling or ground to a halt in the past few months, you may have found yourself looking to expand your scope.
The good news: There are more niche industries out there than you can imagine, and new ones are popping up every day. And they all need talented, flexible, brilliant freelancers like yourself (naturally) to keep that growth going.
All you need to do is know where to find them and how to translate your skill set so they know you can do the job.
Here are some of 2020’s fastest-growing industries, and tips on how to make the most of them.
Target New Opportunities
Markets move fast and trends change constantly. A successful freelancer is one who not only adapts to these trends, but anticipates them. Why? Because whenever there’s growth in a new, underdeveloped industry, there tend to be few experts in the field. Entrepreneurs can build expertise in these areas to quickly take advantage of an opportunity with little competition.
It’s all about staying ahead of the curve. Whereas the past few years saw popularity in trends such as personal coaching, influencer agencies, cryptocurrencies, drones, and artificial intelligence, this year’s boom is more esoteric.
