1. What tools does Roam offer to support freelancers?

Roam has a Fee Finder to generate accurate fees for your projects, then Contracts, Proposals and Scripts to keep project management on track, and finally a Review Studio to efficiently handle reviews and edits with clients.

2. Why does Roam advocate for freelancers over full-time salary workers?

Freelancing provides unparalleled flexibility, allowing individuals to set their own schedules and work from anywhere. With diverse opportunities and the ability to earn more than traditional employment, freelancers enjoy increased autonomy and earning potential. This career path fosters continual skill development, entrepreneurial freedom, and a healthier work-life balance, making it an attractive option for those seeking independence and professional fulfillment.

3. How do I account / plan for taxes / tax season?

It is important to keep in mind that freelancers are responsible for their own taxes, which means yearly tax season will require creatives to pay the appropriate percentage of their yearly income. Freelancers in the USA can expect around 25-30% of their earrings going to taxes. Keeping records of income, expenses, and receipts throughout the year is needed for accurate tax reporting. Some freelancers do this monthly and put money aside or others wait until the end of the year pulling from their main bank account.
