by rkurpess | in
Contrary to popular belief, working online is not very difficult. In fact, many online jobs require little to no experience, can be learned as you go, and as long as you are willing to put forth the time and effort necessary to learn each craft, should not be too challenging.
Whether you are looking for some extra cash on the side, or looking to make a full-time living in the comfort of your own home, the online jobs and websites that are listed below should certainly be of help.
1. Virtual Assistant
As a virtual assistant, you will be paid to help busy individuals finish their daily tasks. The help you provide can range anywhere from updating their Google calendar to answering their phone calls, and you are paid by the hour most often times.
Though this service is unknown to many people, there are a number of platforms that are hiring, and a sea of clients in need of assistance. As long as you have some free-time and are willing to do other people’s chores, then being a VA would be worth your while.
While of course prior experience is preferred, it is not at all necessary in order to apply. In fact, most VA employees start out having never worked in the field before.
In addition to being one of the most highly sought-out online jobs, freelance writing is also one of the easiest. Not only are there a lot of platforms that any aspiring writer can work through, but there are also a lot of clients in need of new content.
Popular sites such as upwork.com, outsource.com, and guru.com require no experience in order to get started, and finding clients is rather easy on each platform.
3. Online Blogger
Starting your own blog can be profitable if done the right way, however, most people start out blogging for other people through websites such as Upwork, Outsource, and Guru.
Similar to freelance writing in many ways, online blogging requires no experience, and serves as a great method of income for some people.
4. Online Tutor
Whether or not you were an honors student in high-school, you can still find a job tutoring online.
Though it requires a high-level of focus and fast typing speed, no experience is needed in order to transcribe content.
While clients can sometimes be found through different freelancing outlets, the best places to apply as a transcriptionist are transcribeme.com, and rev.com.
6. Social Media Manager
Social Media Manager
Instead of being told to get “off” social media while you are at work, you could be getting paid to be “on” social media and work.
Social media managers handle anything from Twitter accounts to Pinterest profiles, and are usually paid by the hour.
If you know how to post statuses, tweet, and update profiles, then managing social media accounts should be a breeze. No experience is required, and the only thing to make sure of is that you have everything updated on time.
Yes, you can be paid to be someone’s friend for a day through RentAFriend.com. This may in fact be the easiest online job (since you are simply paid to hang out with people), and online friends make anywhere from $20 to $50 an hour.
8. Reading Ads
Many companies look for people to read ads online, in order to gauge how each ad will be portrayed by the public.
As you might have guessed, YouTube is a great way to make money online. If you have a tendency for pranks, or are ok with being seen around the world via computer, then YouTube would probably be a great choice. Though no experience is needed, a lot of marketing and promotion will likely need to be done in order to earn a consistent income.
11. Data Entry
Why not do some dummy-work and get paid for it? Many busy people and companies will pay people to enter quick and easy online data into the right places. Data entry jobs can be found through upwork.com and other well-known freelance platforms.
12. Affiliate Marketing
With affiliate marketing, you can earn a commission from promoting other people’s stuff! To get started, just contact a few companies you wouldn’t mind promoting, and work out the details.
13. Online Surveys
Though each survey may not pay hundreds, if done on a consistent enough basis, these micro payments add up quickly.
No experience is necessary, however, it is recommended that you take time on your application since they do turn some people away.
21. E-book Writer
Have a solid command over the english language? If so, you can either write someone’s ebook for them, or write your own and sell it online. Neither require experience, and clients can be found through almost any well-known freelancing platform.
22. Online Coach
Believe it or not, many people work with online coaches. There are a wide variety of areas in which coaches are needed, and no experience is required as long as you know your niche.
