Being A Freelancer in Singapore is Tough…Or is It?

No one said being a freelancer in Singapore was going to be easy. As a freelancer, you are your own employee, boss, secretary – basically your own company. 

Sounds perfect, don’t you think? Not only do you not work for anyone, but you are your own boss. The rates you set? Yours. The days you work? You decide. The clients you handle? Up to you! 

You can sympathise with your friends who work from 9 to 5 daily, but only sympathise. Because while they complain about travel cost, fatigue and back aches from sitting on their chairs for too long, you simply cannot relate. 

All this might be making freelancing seem like a walk in the park so far. “How is it tough?” you might ask. Well, being a freelancer is much more than calling the shots and taking a holiday whenever you want. For starters, you as an individual need to possess certain qualities to even have a chance at being a successful one. 

Since the productivity of a work day is in your hands, it all comes down to the discipline you have in making sure it does not go wasted. A freelancer’s discipline goes a long way in determining whether they make it or break it in the industry. 

Not just that, but perseverance is a key factor as well. There are going to be days where the money made is zero – for several reasons. Maybe there is no project you are currently undertaking, or you might just be going through a dry spell where you cannot find a new client. Not letting these deterrents get to you is the tricky solution. 

Human nature aside, there are many other aspects that come into play to successfully create and run your one-man (or woman) show. 

Step One: Get yourself online! And this does not just stop at Instagram or Facebook; create your own business website. Make it simple, accessible, and last but definitely not the least, beautiful. Because if you don’t take pride in your work, who will? 

Social media is a platform that you definitely should not discount or write off. As a professional working freelancer who finds their own jobs, you are going to need all the connections you can get. Finding like-minded people builds up the base of your business. 

Step Two: Get your separate business phone number and large stack of name cards. Establishing your corporate identity is vital to showing your clients – both existing and potential – the image you wish to portray. More importantly, it helps instill confidence in them about your seriousness and dedication towards your work. 

Step Three: Determine the services you offer and their rates. How are you going to make money to eat without showing your clients how much each dish on the menu costs? 

Social media, portfolio website, business phone line, name cards, services and rates. If this single-sentence-summary has you sighing right about now, wait. Because there is still one last step left, and it is the best one. 

What if you could do all this…on just one app? An app that you could simply download on your phone? 

Ladies and gentlemen, Step Four: Become a Phix Provider. 

Phix gives you the all-in-one platform to establish and advertise yourself, build connections and earn money at the same time. Its simple sign-up procedure is all you need to get through to set yourself up for a comfortable income to start pouring in, with clients coming to you for your services and not the traditional, other way around. 

It would take a whole bunch of other articles to talk about all that Phix Provider can offer you, but much less time for you to actually download it and explore them all. Trust me, you will not regret it. 

Sign up now, and be the best freelancer you can be. You can always thank me later!

Singapore’s best plumbing services are easier to find than you think.

With almost a million and a half households in Singapore, there is definitely a need for household amenities such as electrical repairs, housekeeping, and even plumbing.

Let us talk about plumbing. When you search in Google, there are several plumbers or plumbing companies that pop up in less than a second. 

Google search for Plumber in Singapore.

How do you choose the one you want, though? There are so many factors to take into account: the timing, the price, the experience and legitimacy of the plumber and so on. Furthermore, communicating to make sure they know the exact problem has to be easy.

What if you did not have to scroll through search engines anymore? How does no more clicking on different links and websites to find the right plumber sound? Because we have the solution that can make that happen for you. 

This easy-to-use Singapore app has not just plumbers, but a wide range of other services as well. But let me bring you through the journey of selecting the right provider for you easily by zeroing in on plumbing. 

Phix App Features
  • Download Phix Customer from App Store/ Google Play Store .  
  • Sign up. 
  • Key in your address in the address bar provided. 
  • Pick one of the nine service categories 
  • In this case, you can find plumbing under ‘Repairs’. 
  • Select the exact type of plumbing issue you are looking to get fixed, such as toilet bowl or machine pipe unclogging. 
  • Tap on any provider reflected on the map, or on the number of available providers at the bottom of the screen. 

Watch below for a short tutorial on how to book a provider on Phix Customer App. (link)

Everyone from this list of plumbers has their own skills, experience, pricings, ratings and reviews available. What’s more, you have access to all this information to help you make a decision while picking a plumber. 

The best part about this? The providers shown are those in your vicinity, so it does not matter whether you are in Jurong, Woodlands, Punggol or Bedok. The service will be carried out at any time and place of your choice and convenience. 

Also, bid goodbye to bidding. 

Some platforms require providers to bid for a job they are interested in. This leaves them constantly having to check if they got the job, as well as makes them question themselves if they did not. 

Here at Phix, they do not have to feel demoralised anymore. The way it works here is simple. You choose the provider, and they get the job once you book them.

Phix gets you the provider on demand; just choose the provider, it’s that simple.

No more doubting providers’ worth. The providers on the platform are skilled and experienced, and they are more than willing to do their best for you if you book their services. 

Replace tiring search engine-scrolling with simple booking on Phix Customer. And not just for plumbers either. Electricians, housekeepers, yoga teachers – you name it, we have it.

About Us

The ease that comes with the technologies of the 21st century is astounding. Just look at applications, or as we call them, apps. Be it food or a taxi, getting either in a few minutes is possible with just a click. You can even look for jobs just by scrolling through these apps.  

What happens, however, when you need something urgently fixed up in your own home? Or when your child’s exams are sooner than you thought and the need for a tutor is dire? What if you are dejected by the lack of replies even after taking the effort of sending out your well-written resume to countless jobs? Or if, say, one-fifth of your income is taken away as commission? 

And now for the real question: what if there is one app to solve all these problems? If you think that’s impossible, think again, for Phix is here! 

This one-of-a-kind platform provides services ranging from home-cleaning to finance, on demand. Customers now have the ability to book various kinds of services based on their needs. The simplicity of the app’s usage makes it extremely user-friendly and easy to navigate. 

With the objective of being a fast, professional and effective bridge between customers and service providers, Phix has created two different apps; one each for both parties. 

Customers can make their booking in 4 short steps. 

  1. Choose the required service by simply clicking on the ‘+’ in the middle of the screen. This shows all the providers nearby as well as their rates. Once a provider is selected, their reviews and full list of services are reflected as well. 
  2. Swipe up to make the booking. There is a provision in this step to enter the number of desired units or hours, based on the nature of the job. 
  3. Select a time slot and payment method. This is simple and self-explanatory.
  4. Enter the residential unit number and include a short description of any specifications that the provider should be informed of.

Once the booking is complete, a notification will be sent to the customer when the provider has started making his or her way to the location. Customers can add their own review and experience to the provider’s profile upon completion of the job. 

The provider app is slightly different. Since Phix serves as a job portal for them, furnishing a detailed and comprehensive skillset would greatly benefit providers in terms of securing more jobs, and hence, more income. The process is definitely much simpler than applying for any other job, as there is no need to extensively search for various jobs in the first place and send resumes out to apply for each one of them.

Effortless procedure aside, Phix offers great flexibility and benefits for its registered providers. Not only is signing up free, there’s also a $50 perk for every new provider sign-up. This comes with the freedom of setting their own justified rates and schedules as well. 

A more detailed explanation of the navigation and plus points of the app can be found in this short video from our YouTube channel, Phix SG:

In a nutshell, Phix makes the process uncomplicated: one portal, one resume for providers, many jobs and services. 

Through this approach, Phix has not only revolutionised the tech market by being the first ever app to be a mass-service provider, but also created several job opportunities. Customers have quick and convenient access to services they would otherwise have to spend a considerable time looking for online. This in turn gives providers a chance to potentially make up to $3000 a month, which sits perfectly with Phix’s aim of lending a helping hand to those in the lower income bracket. 

So why wait when there’s no need to look further? Download Phix Customer or Phix Provider from your Play or App Stores to enjoy all these perks and more, and Phix your problems now!

GETTING PHIXED IS NOW LEGAL IN SINGAPORE.

Yes, our website is ‘getphix.com’, and we do not sell weed. 

It might sound absurd to some that I’m even clarifying this, but scrolling through @getphix’s Instagram followers was even more absurd for me.

When I first began working in the company, the over-800 Instagram followers had me impressed. Such a significant figure for a practically new start-up? Definitely impressive. 

Then I started scrolling through those followers, and it was obvious that some of them had only become followers because they had a completely different idea about what we did. 

I jumped onto Google to check what it had to say about us. Typing ‘phix’ in the search bar, my colleagues and I were pleasantly surprised to see our website as the seventh suggestion on the first page itself. After all, being one of Google’s top 10 suggestions is no small achievement, especially for a young start-up. 

The only damper on our spirits was the small fact that the first six suggestions were all about vaping and weed. 

And that was the last push I needed to get in front of my laptop and furiously clack away at my keyboard, because this message needs to get out there – and it needs to get out now. 

Whether you’re one of our few kick-seeking Instagram followers or just the innocent reader who chanced upon this article, you need to know this: MARIJUANA IS ILLEGAL; PHIX SG IS NOT.
