Beberapa waktu yang lalu saya melihat ada kesempatan kerja freelancer di fiverr. Sebuah aplikasi web dan mobile yang mempertemukan freelancer sebagai seller, dan para pengguna jasa freelancer atau customer.
Well, menarik. Lantas saya menemukan salah satu kosakata baru, yaitu gig. Gig adalah hal yang freelancer bisa tawarkan ke customer. Saya tertarik untuk memulai dengan gig voice over berikut.
Selamat datang di Indonesia. Sebuah negara kepulauan terbesar di dunia, yang terdiri dari 17 ribu pulau, 34 provinsi, dan 1300-an suku bangsa.
Anda akan dibuat terpesona dengan keanekaragaman budayanya. Keramahannya. Dan, keindahan alamnya.

You will be fascinated with the diversity of culture. The Kindness. And, the beauty of nature.
Bicara soal komunikasi, kita tentu tidak bisa melepaskannya dari bagaimana cara kita memelihara relasi. Komunikasi dan relasi sangat erat, bung! Andaikan ada seseorang yang sulit berkomunikasi, tentunya akan SULIT juga memiliki relasi yang baik dengan orang lain.
Although I focus on improving and reviewing the team’s capability and results, sometimes I still need to work on small things, such as copywriting tasks. Why? Personally to maintain the writing and technical skill. But it is beyond that intention, which is leading by example.
I personally observe, if one of the team members does not perform, let’s say, due to a lack of discipline, they do not deliver in time or lack of quality, one of the solutions is giving the example then giving advice. But if it doesn’t work, you call HR, for further treatment. 🙂
That’s it from me. Thank you for reading! IF you too are in the creative industry, design, social media field, I would love to know more about your workflow.
I previously used Google Sheet + Comment + Assign features to perform ‘relay run’ on Create Content — Design — Release process. But it was NOT enough! I sometimes did NOT notice that there are comments on the documents. It moves to spam and nonsense.
Then I discussed with the team and we decided to move to Trello. We successfully maintain the Trello board. One output, one card. If it is done, we can just put it on the done board that we created weekly.
7. Create a bully-free culture, hence the critics and inputs of their works are well said and documented.
I make sure that team members are NOT afraid to give their ideas. But, I also make sure that the team members have empathy and respect while giving critics. It is very tricky. And I believe that it takes time. I would say that lessons number 4 and 5 can significantly improve this free-bullying culture.
Producing creative digital output such as images, videos, digital campaigns, and so on required commitment and details. I would say that the works are like doing a relay run. If the communication between the parties is not well maintained, I guaranteed the frustration of the team. Thus, the system of requests must be built.
Using a system such as a request form and automatic email to serve external department requests is necessary. Making sure that the objective, details, assets are well documented. If miscommunication still persists, we can detect the root cause easier. Whether it is from the people, process, or technology.

The Diary of work is very important. Simply just use a spreadsheet with columns of Team Name, Team Member Name, Date, Project / Product Code, Activity, Start, End, Output. I know it was intimidating at first, but trust me, there will be tremendous benefits.
Don’t just stop on the diary writing!
It is needed to discuss the diary regularly during evaluation. What day? I recommend Friday. Why Friday? It is because of the end of the working days in a week. The team can discuss their working diary timesheet, as well as their blocking points if any. It is also the time for me to engage with the team.
For me personally, writing the working diary means I can check what I have done. I can answer these questions quickly: “Did I finish my task?” and “What are things that I can improve in the future?”
As a leader, I can at least answer “Did the team productively work within the last week? ”Who is on the high and low workload?”
Frequently, other managers ask the workloads of my team, simply to check if we can still serve their creative requests or not with a certain duration of time or not.
