In this article, I am going to tell you about 7 different jobs that you can do online and earn your livelihood from the comfort of your home. You can do these jobs even if you are not a highly qualified person even students can comfortably do them. You can earn between $10 to $15 per hour which depends upon the experience you already have. Of course, your income will grow as your experience increases over time.
To do these jobs, you will need to sign up on a freelance website such as Upwork, Fiverr, Freelancer, etc. I would recommend Upwork as it’s the most used freelance platform and I have tested it myself. On Upwork, you can look through different jobs that people post to get their jobs done.
Here goes the list of jobs you can do! I have sorted them by the easiest on the top.
Data entry is probably the job with the lowest pay but the easiest to start with. Data Entry jobs have a huge variety in them. It can be a job that requires you to take a PDF or scanned image and write the text in MS Word format. Or it can be a job to organize data from a document file to an Excel sheet. Or you can even get a job copying product data from one website and adding it to another website.
The good thing with data entry jobs is that you don’t need any experience however you need to avoid mistakes while typing especially if the data is financial. In data entry jobs, you need to pay attention to every detail and that is the key to retaining your clients. You need to make sure that the data you are typing is the same as the one given to you, better double-check it before submissions.
This job is suitable for those people who are more into social media. Usually, people create social media accounts for their stores and they need someone to create social posts on their behalf such as posts for new arrivals in their store. Most famous public figures usually don’t have enough time to make social media posts so they hire their social media managers and pay them to manage their social media accounts.
If you are willing to work as a social media manager then you may need to do the following tasks:
If you happen to be a good writer then a freelance writer. Good writers are hard to find so you can earn $12 to $15 an hour easily if you have a good grip on English. You can earn even more if you have some technical writing skills, for example, if you can write good text for marketing emails or landing pages then you can earn much more.
You can even find jobs that pay per article on Upwork or you can post a gig on Fiverr to write an article for $15. If you are a good writer, you can certainly write a good article within an hour.
Teaching is a very respectable profession and people are willing to pay a good amount to good tutors. Since Covid, the earnings of online teachers have increased a lot. Now it has become a norm for people to hire online tutors for their kids. If you have no technical knowledge, you can start as an English teacher, which requires communication skills. If you feel shy or hesitant then again YouTube is here to help by offering countless videos on online teaching. You can earn $10 to $15 easily by teaching kids online.
If you are a creative person then you can do a job as a video editor. You can easily learn how to edit videos by watching a few tutorials on YouTube. You will be surprised to see how many people are looking for video editors to edit their videos and upload on YouTube, Instagram, or ticktock. If you master this skill then you can get advanced video editing jobs such as video advertisements, training courses, or support tutorials.
Graphic designers probably earn the most when it comes to online jobs. If you are a qualified graphic designer then you can easily earn $35+ per hour but even if you are not very good at designing, you can still earn up to $15 per hour by taking ideas from the websites like Canva.
To become a graphic designer, you will need to learn Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, or CorelDRAW. You can learn them easily by looking up a few YouTube tutorials.
Following are a few things for which you can find jobs on Upwork and other platforms
To become a web developer, you will need to put a bit more effort into learning. You will need to watch a lot of YouTube tutorials to start learning web development. It may take somewhere between 3 to 6 months even to start as a newbie web developer but it is certainly worth the effort. You can find tons of web-related work in different freelancing markets and earn between $12 to $40 easily depending on your experience.
Even if you don’t go as a full-fledged web developer, becoming a WordPress developer alone can get you plenty of work which should be enough to keep you busy all the time. Once you get familiar with WordPress then you can move toward more website builders such as Wix or Squarespace or you can even become a custom web developer if you give enough time. Your earnings will increase over time, I have seen people earning more than $100 per hour in this field so it is definitely worth your attention.
