The SAFREAN Bringing you the latest news in South African freelancing
MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIR
As we move through June, I want to encourage collaboration within our association. By working together as a community, I know we can make SAFREA great.
That means getting in touch if you have ideas, reaching out if you have questions or concerns, and letting me know if you come across any issues such as bugs on the website, problems with the Google group or just need a friend to laugh/cry/celebrate with!
Special thanks to Kim Stevens, Alec Smith, and Eric Miller for their photo contributions in this month's newsletter. If you'd like to take part in our SAFREA social media library, please get in touch with our social media manager, Laura Dubber. To find out more about each freelancer, just click on their photo.
“The average earning of a freelancer in South Africa just doesn’t match up even to the baseline wage of the average worker in the country. Freelancers are earning in the vicinity of R10k a month, whereas for the average South African employee it is at just over R18k.”
This month we’re featuring Isebell Gauche, a Pretoria based published author and full-time freelance magazine feature writer. With over 15,000 client company landing pages, SEO articles, blog posts, and press releases under her belt, Isebell has certainly made a name for herself in the South African freelancing community. We're thrilled to also call her a member of SAFREA.
Read more about Isebell and find her contact details by visiting her SAFREA profile, here.
At SAFREA, we're always on the lookout for time-saving tricks and business insights to help our members take their careers to the next level.
This month, SAFREA member Chris Meier reviews Quuu, a useful tool for any freelancer who wants to stay on top of their social media game.
You'll find Chris' full write-up on the SAFREA website under the Tips and Tricks section.
