  1. 1. The Freelance Budget: You Spend How Much on SaaS!?
  2. 2. Cloud-based and SaaS products can be both a blessing and a financial curse for freelancers. The key is evaluating what works best for you.
  3. 3. SaaS: A Double-edged Sword SaaS (Software as a Service) and other cloud-based softwares present the conundrum of being both hugely advantageous for freelancers, but also potentially highly expensive in the long run. Usually, SaaS products come in the form of a program that is available through the purchase of a monthly or yearly subscription.
  4. 4. The up-front cost is the big advantage here. It’s not likely that a new freelancer will be able to drop $3000 on a software product, but $50 a month might be doable. It’s extremely important to note, however, that SaaS and cloud-based products do come with drawbacks.
  5. 5. “The downside? Users must be comfortable with the idea that to one degree or another, their use of the system and the data moving into and through the applications is likely to be monitored and remotely saved. And some programs are only available when the computer or device has access to the internet. No connection...no productivity.” Odee Ingersoll, Director of the Nebraska Business Development Center at the University of Nebraska at Kearney
  6. 6. $$ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ In addition to security and data saving, something to think about is the long-term effect these programs will have on that freelancer budget of yours.
  7. 7. Perform a “systems scan” a few times a year. Tips to Save Your Freelancer Budget: Go through all of your SaaS subscriptions and evaluate how much and how well you use them. Don’t throw money away on products that aren’t the right fit for your company. Take advantage of free trials. Many SaaS products offer a free trial option, and it’s absolutely in your best interests to use them. Trying a product for 30 days or even two weeks is worth it if it helps you utilize your funds effectively.
  8. 8. $ Wait before you go “Premium.” A common theme in SaaS programs is to offer a free version with the option to upgrade to a “premium” level. Give the free version a shot first, just in case it turns out to be all the power you need. Don’t forget about what you’re already paying for.
  9. 9. SaaS subscriptions can be lifesavers or they can drag you down; it all depends on your business.
