In 2019, the national freelance award went to M Shamir Hasan from Bangladesh. He, like millions of others from Bangladesh, started freelancing as a profession because he claims, “I wanted to support myself financially.” India, which almost completely surrounds Bangladesh (at one time they were part of the same country), has seen very strong growth in online freelancing. Many in India believe the following three things contributed to that country’s strong freelance growth:
India’s fast reliable internet.
- A nationwide openness to freelance at all levels of government.
- A strong background and education in how freelance works.
But many of those same factors seem not to be helping Bangladesh to attain or accelerate the same aggressive growth. The freelance markets have begun to mature and the industry is changing. Companies such as Freelance Global Gigs (FGG) Low Cost Marketplace, along with Communal News, are starting to offer increasing services and a knowledge base in Bengali and other languages that cover over 90% of Bangladesh. This is become more importation to both the buyer and seller.

The Bangladesh government claims that six million workers (out of a total population of around 170 million), or just over 3% of the population, is freelancing in Bangladesh, earning their income by providing different kinds of IT-based skills along with other gig services.

The growth of gig freelancing is now worldwide, with a global market value of roughly $1.5 trillion and the Bangladesh government is opening up, provide facilities such as loans and others incentives to help ensure freelancers can take part in this fast-growing, newly-emerging global market. The problem is most freelance jobs are low pay and repetitive. But if you could provide a online business being a gig provider, you can often make a far more profitable business offer a specialized service at higher worldwide prices.
One of M Shamir’s strategies is to work across multiple freelancing platforms, but of course with all things being equal he would prefer (as almost all do) platforms with the lowest overall total costs. Lower transaction costs mean higher total income for freelancers.
