First, warm welcome to The Freelancing Guide. In this guide, I will try to explain to you, simply how to make money on the Internet using your talents and skills. No, I am not talking about Internet marketing here; I am not talking about affiliate marketing, some dodgy get-rich-quick-scheme insanity or anything illegal. I am talking about the profession called freelancing or Outsourcing.
