The Advantages Of Cloud Storage For Freelance Contractors


Freelancers are a new generation of full of renegade independent artisans, business owners and craftsmen who have chosen to work on their own terms. Leaving behind the more traditional 9-5 type of organizations, freelancers are doing it for themselves and loving it!

When you run your own business, you give yourself the freedom to work when and where you want. You also have the freedom to be agile enough to customize your business to suit your needs and the needs of your customers.

Although the freelance business lifestyle may seem like a dream to many, it still requires the same amount of effort, skill and self motivation as any other typical industry. There is often no established business infrastructure for freelancers to rely on so they have to create their work environment and systems from scratch.

It's a huge responsibility to get your business organized well enough to function efficiently. Whether you are working remotely using your laptop, or have established a home office type of base, you still need to consider all of the same aspects of a larger more complex business.

As your business grows and the number of clients increases, you will be in greater need of reliable and accessible file storage. Adding more memory to your existing system with external hard drives can be expensive, so one of the best alternatives is to invest in Cloud storage to give yourself lots of room to grow. The benefits of using the Cloud as a freelancer can make all the difference in how easily you can organize your business for efficiency.


The Cloud can be accessed anytime from anywhere. There is no need to worry about having the right USB drives, manually organizing your clients files or worrying about losing any of your data. Anywhere that you have an internet connection, you can have instant access to all of your current and backed up files in just seconds. There is no need to take any external drive systems with you if you are on the go. That keeps your system streamlined and portable.


Freelancers have the ability to conduct most of their business online, thanks to current technologies. There is no need to even have in-person meetings anymore with the convenience of Skype and other video call programs. With Cloud storage, you have the ability to extend access to any of your saved files to your colleagues or clients without having to send a physical file!

This can save you a ton of time spent trying to coordinate your schedule to accommodate clients and coworkers.

Storage Size

Cloud storage is more than just a convenient filing solution, it is also one of the most cost-efficient methods of backing up all of your files and data. If you are looking to continually back up your growing business, you will spend much more on external drives than you will on increasing the size of your Cloud storage. As your business grows, you always have the option to expand your online storage at much lower prices than expensive hardware.
