A growing variety of entrepreneurs need online content in the form of articles, stories, descriptions of products and services, reports and more.
If you are good with words, you can easily be part of those who create these contents.
Talented editors have a myriad of opportunities to build a business around their writing service.
Here are different areas to exploit.
1. Ghost writer
If you have the talent to do research and create quality content on behalf of others, you will always find work.
This can be blog articles, magazines, books and more.
And the better your writing level, the more customers you will find ready to pay you the high price.
2. ebooks editor
Warning! If you want to publish your own digital book today, know that there have been better years to do it …
Unless you have an excellent idea allowing you to sell your book to a large number of people.
But you can not imagine the number of independent authors who told me:
“It’s a long-term job for very little sales”.
A profitable alternative is to write the white papers online businesses.
These are the guides you find for free download on their sites in exchange for your email address.
These books serve two things:
- Prove their expertise in their field
- And recover new prospects
But these companies do not necessarily have the time or the desire to write them and they often delegate this work to freelancers.
Do you understand the opportunity?
3. Editor of specific pages of blogs and sites
In 2015, there were nearly 2000,000 active merchant sites. And the trend is only increasing.
In your opinion, how many owners of these sites need editors for lack of time or simply because they do not know how to write correctly?
And many are hiring.
- To write what exactly?
- “About” pages
- The specific pages of their sites
- Blog articles, etc.
The hourly rate for a beginner is not usually very high.
But patience! With a little experience and a growing portfolio, you will be able to earn more money than you earn with your current job.
The principle: Choose a niche that you can master.
If you know “well-being”, only approach the sites concerned by showing your level of writing and your expertise in the field.
4. Freelance proofreading, correction, formatting
Aaah … spelling, grammar, syntax, and punctuation. These are words that give hives to non-literary people.
And that flies the credibility of authors and online companies neglecting the importance of their texts.
Take a test: go to a site full of mistakes or read a book shielded with pompous and badly turned phrases …
How long will you hold?
This is why the most discerning use freelance proofreaders.
Are you good in spelling, grammar, and conjugation?
I know my friends who offer these two services:
- Proofreading and text correction
- Formatting and creation of ebooks
It even offers its customers the opportunity to publish their productions on Amazon.
A few of the many talents that allow him to increase his income in parallel with his work a little more each month.
It is a job that pays and you will also have to deal with many interesting topics. A beautiful way to open your mind.
And as long as there are writings on the net, you will never run out of contracts.
5. Corresponding reporter online
No, no! You do not need a journalism degree to become a reporter.
If you have the verve and you write good articles, nothing prevents you from selling your productions.
Some information sites pay for this kind of services.
The principle is simple: the more your article is read, the more the site earns money with the ads attached to your ticket. And they pay you the percentage based on their earnings.
So, for example, contact Hubpages and put the package in writing:
- Articles that stand out
- And optimized for search engines
6. Scripting creator for webinars
A webinar is an online conference that anyone can follow regardless of their location.
For example, for next march I wrote an article on my blog to announce my webinar:
How to convert your skills in $1000 / month (or more) [Webinar].
Companies use this marketing technique to boost their sales. An effective strategy that takes a lot of stripes in recent years.
But again, they do not always have time to write the content.
For proof, even though the writing of the article associated with my webinar took me only a few hours, it took me a good week to write his script!
Because a one-hour webinar can have more than 8000 words.
This is where you intervene:
- You know how to hold the attention of an audience with your writings?
- You know how to tell stories?
- You know how to offer educational content?
- Do you know about marketing?
So, this job is for you.
By specializing in this type of writing for companies, you can earn a lot of money.
7. Editor of product reviews
- New technologies
- Fashionable smartphones
- Latest video games
- From literature
- Healthy / organic products
- Or any other specific product
Do not look further.
Find blogs or e-commerce sites in the niche that you like and offer them to review the latest products released on the market for pay.
What do they earn?
A brand new article on their site with the point of view of an expert (you).
The opportunity to make the affiliation: by publishing the article and spreading it on their networks, they will earn a commission each time a reader will buy the product by their link.
8 is missing
9. Graphic designer
Posters, flyers, logos, business cards, book covers, restaurant menus, product packaging … and the list is still long.
We are surrounded by graphics.
If you touch software such as Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign and you’re overflowing with creativity, here you go.
Do you begin in the trade?
Nothing prevents you to start with some personal creations to show your work to your future customers.
Many people have their personal websites and some work but in your case, everything in its time.
Focus first on finding your first customers. And once you have some, you can take the time to create your portfolio online.
10. Web Designer (and Webmaster)
Think of this figure: 25 million sites! A constantly increasing number each year.
So, if you master the art of designing structured and organized web interfaces for optimal navigation, unemployment will always be an unknown concept for you.
Often combined with graphics, this discipline generates an exponential demand.
But as a beginner, start small. For example, you can focus on sites and themes using WordPress technology to get you started.
Many small businesses are content with a basic presence to promote themselves on the web. Because they do not always have big budgets.
Approach these modest businesses at first. Offer them a simple site creation with a maintenance service on time.
So, you get your hands on the business before going any further and possibly eventually build your own web agency.
Pure graphics and web design are not easy.
You feel more in tune with the drawing, you get bored with the graphics tablets and you are bursting with creative ideas. So, you have all the cards in hand to offer your services of illustrator.
Especially since the CAD (Computer Aided Drawing) allows you to be fast while having an easy exchange and correction with your interlocutor.
12. Greeting Card Creator
Still in the category artist, but more specific …
Whether you are a designer, a photographer or a cartoonist, you can earn additional income thanks to your style and original ideas.
For example, by typing “greeting card” on Google, you will find many other sites to solicit.
Small aside after these first 12 ideas
When they get their idea, many freelancers register on employer/freelance matching platforms to find contracts.
peopleperhour, Fiverr, GraphicDesigner, Freelancer.com …
These interfaces abound on the Net and you will be tempted to register yourself too.
These platforms have big drawbacks:
- You will have to pay them to enjoy all of their services and good visibility.
- The competition is such that most freelancers are selling at a discount.
- These are nests with boring customers, less inclined to pay you properly.
And to be honest, they have so many incompetent freelancers that even as a customer I do not want to go back. Too many bad experiences …
Photographers and filmmakers
13. Image Store Provider
If you have the knack for taking pictures with a bit of technique and originality, why not sell your pictures on the image bank sites?
Many companies and bloggers use it regularly to capture the illustrations needed for their articles.
Here is the Shutterstock link to register as a seller.
Their slogan “Make money doing what you love” makes sense here.
You can also cash in your productions on gettyimages.
And these are far from the only sites. To find others, simply type “image bank” in Google.
The more you will find, the more you will expand your chances of selling your photos, your drawings or your illustrations.
Of course, if you are really talented, you will eventually create your own site with your portfolio.
But for the moment, be content with this simple solution to quickly earn your first euros in parallel with your work.
14. Video creator
It’s no longer a secret, a video is a must today. Just scroll through your Facebook news feed to find out.
And if you have the skills to create quality videos, you do not have to worry anymore. Because the demand will only increase in the years to come.
Your goal is obviously not to become the new Spielberg.
Just be content to create small videos in the areas of sales, education, animation or instruction.
The most important thing is to satisfy the exact needs of the prospects you wish to approach.
Technicians and engineers
15. Mobile application developer
Do you have the skills to create applications for tablets and smartphones?
In this case, I certainly do not teach you anything by telling you that they invade the market.
So go for it!
With more than 700,000 apps for 50,000 million downloads, the App Store and Google Play are a monstrous market.
More and more companies want to increase their mobile presence and sales with their own application.
And as most do not have the skills for this kind of development, they will not fail to entrust this task to an expert.
A great opportunity for you.
16. PowerPoint Specialist
Eh yes! Even companies using PowerPoint need external specialists.
Sometimes someone who doesn’t have much time to create a presentation, so he may hire you to make for him.
17. Web developer
Like graphic designers, designers or web marketers, freelance developers are becoming more and more important in French companies.
And the share of providers employed on permanent contracts is decreasing in the face of the growing number of applications for self-employed workers.
These practices combine creativity, technical knowledge and require an almost daily upgrade because they are technologies that evolve at full speed.
Rather positive for this kind of activities that, in addition to creation, also allows developers to offer maintenance work.
18. Custom Software Developer
Today, software is an integral part of the life of any business, big or small.
We all need it to manage our business with software that suits entrepreneurs around the world.
But despite all these offers, many companies do not always find shoes to their feet. And they often need software tailored to their specific needs.
This is where you intervene.
Get in touch with these companies (or administrations) to design and set up their accounting software, inventory management, image processing or any other usefulness.
19. WordPress Site Specialist
Who does not know WordPress today?
This CMS is used by most small businesses wishing to have a presence on the web without getting too bored with the code.
Its “ease” of use is such that it represents a huge market (26% of the websites in the world).
But the skills needed to master it take time. And many entrepreneurs simply can not afford to spend weeks (or even months) setting up their site and managing their plugins.
Especially if they are novices and they understand nothing.
So you can create and administer the WordPress sites of these small businesses.
But beware! Because the domain is ultra competitive.
So here’s a little tip:
Choose a specific area. For example, specialize in creating e-commerce sites or sites for restaurants.
The more specific you are in the type of site that you propose, the more likely your prospects will be concerned and will be able to choose you as a provider.
And if you want to become a killer on WordPress, take advantage of the excellent advice of Ali Raza from AliRaza.co. His articles will give you motivation and you will learn everything you need to be on top.
20. Life Coach
I agree it’s a bastard term that covers many areas.
Simply put, you offer individual coaching to your clients during their personal or professional transition.
Thus, you help them make better decisions and translate them into concrete actions during this period of change (or crisis) that seems insurmountable to them.
Life coaches are legion on the net. So do not forget to stand out. Choose a particular area and only address people with a specific problem.
For example, you can propose:
- Parental coaching
- Goal coaching
- Life changing coaching
- Appearance or branding coaching
- Coaching to accompany mourning or end of life
- and suicide prevention (How you will do this??? i wonder…)
And if you are able to restore confidence and happiness through your listening skills, assistance, guidance, motivation, and planning, you have a profitable idea.
21. Business Coach
An activity that I practiced freelance for a few years.
Living abroad, I coached people via Skype to help them build their business.
And I can assure you that there is a big demand in the field!
No wonder when the evolution of the labor market rings without a shadow of a doubt the death knell.
If you’re passionate about business and you think you’re up to the task of helping people get started, there’s room for you in the business.
So, use your expertise and suggest to your customers a plan of attack so that they start their business serenely thanks to your personalized coaching.
22. Coach for Small Business
Where life coaches cater to individuals, corporate coaches cater to …?
Yeah, easy for the shot.
What is less important is knowing how to specialize in a specific field (as usual).
If you have good knowledge of the business world and can help entrepreneurs improve their business for better results, skip this opportunity.
23. personal trainer
In these times of junk food and increased sedentarism, more and more people need to get back into shape.
So, if you have the means to help these people become healthier, thinner or more muscular, you have everything to gain.
An activity that you can do both online and offline.
Of course, if you start, do not try to compete with the big names in the middle.
A method that I practice regularly in addition to my running sessions.
As long as you are talking to people who are less expert than you and that you can fill their needs effectively, you will find clients.
24. Coach natural hair coloring white
This is an example of coaching that has the merit of being well nested. (it’s kind of health coaching that can be anything)
Coaches help women over 40 feel good about themselves by avoiding all types of chemicals sold in stores.
And nothing prevents you from offering several small simple coaching in a field that you master particularly.
In the same vein as coaching, teaching is full of business ideas to launch on different media.
25. Distance Language Teacher
The advantage of online language teachers is that they can teach their art without being confined to the French market.
So, you can start selling your freelance distance courses:
- Solo by Skype or Google Hangout
- Or via online education platforms (even if you now know what I think …)
If you have a diploma or blatant evidence that you have lived in a country for years to attest to your skills, you will be able to find clients willing to pay for conversational classes.
And who knows, by experience, when you will be full time, you may be able to create your own online courses or your revolutionary method as the teaching of Chinese or something else.
26. Computer Teacher
You probably do not imagine the number of people who lack knowledge in the field around you.
Whether your specialty is software, code or security, you have the perfect skills to get started in parallel with your work.
To start, position yourself on the one you master the most. And you will broaden your teaching fields as and when you need them.
Start by approaching your entourage. Ideally, you should already find some first customers.
27. Photography teacher
No, it’s not about teaching Instagram or Camera + on iPhone, but about some real cameras.
The pause times, the opening of the diaphragm and ISO have no secret for you? Do you know the difference between Reflex, Bridge, Hybrid, and Compact?
So, you must know that mastering photography is not innate.
Especially when you see your friends make pictures blurry, too dark or with a part of the body regularly cut …
Use this opportunity to solicit your first clients. Arguments that they will never blush again by showing their vacation photos.
(Almost) everyone is graduating. But how many are good at preparing their exams correctly?
An excellent business opportunity available to you if you are able to help them in a particular subject.
Get in touch with these people while browsing the net. There are many forums dedicated to exams.
To find the ones that fit your specialty, just tap Google:
“Allinurl: forum + exam + [your field]”
Register on the forums that you tease and approach the people needing help.
29. Teacher of online scrapbook management
With the explosion of smartphones, the number of photos taken in the world is astronomical.
Facebook alone represents 71.425 billion photos uploaded per year! (2,263 photos every second).
You imagine the brothel …
Except that once shared on Facebook, your photo does not belong to you anymore. Thanks to the great privacy of Big Data.
But there are much more creative (and secure) ways to share our memories on the internet.
This is the very principle of online souvenir albums like:
- Photo on Web
And since everyone does not have the fiber to take charge and manage these programs, why not jump at the chance?
Thus, you teach which sites to choose according to the needs, how to use them, how to organize your photos upstream and draw from the software to the maximum in the form of small lessons.
30. Online Music Teacher
No secrets here.
So, what instrument do you play? Saxo, drums, ukulele?
Today, you do not have to move to follow your students playing. Skype or Hangout will do the trick.
So you can find customers all over the country.
And it is also a boon to avoid spending two hours in transport for an unfortunate hour of home schooling.
As usual, I encourage you to find your customers by yourself (without going through the platform sites).
But the vein is less exploited than in the trades of the internet, try your luck story to see if it’s worth it.
31. Creator of marketing content (copywriter)
Whether for my own business or on behalf of my clients, I create marketing content for several years.
And with this experience, I can assure you that Copywriter is a very profitable business.
Growing startups, well-established companies or Net influencers, all need quality marketing content to make their readers act in a specific way and make them want to buy.
If you think you have the skills to write:
- Sales pages
- Strategic email sequences
- From email capture pages
- White papers
- Effective marketing messages
- Or blogging articles focused on marketing
And if you know how to make this content attractive enough to turn readers into customers then you have every chance of succeeding in this activity.
32. Capture pages specialist
The more a website gets subscribers, the more customers it has.
Hence the importance for all companies located on the Web to have pages for capturing emails.
Thus, they transform their readers into subscribers who come to increase their list of prospects.
If you know :
- Use the right words to write these pages
- Handle the right design software to create them
- And reference them correctly
You can become a specialist in the “web conversion” dedicated to the recovery of emails.
3 combined skills that your customers will not hesitate to pay you handsomely.
Because even the smallest page capture will always bring you a few hundred euros.
Did you know that many companies hire freelancers to manage their presence on social networks?
A boon for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest addicts who can be paid to spend time on these networks.
And without ever feeling guilty! Foot. 🙂
Thus, you work remotely 2 hours per day max to manage the social media of a company. Or at half-time, if you cumulate the providers.
It is a very easy activity to practice in parallel with your job.
Another advantage: you can easily pick up customers. Just check their presence on the networks and detects a bad management of their media:
- Posts too infrequent or bad hours
- Rotten or non-existent hooks
- Poorly chosen visuals, etc.
Then contact them by explaining exactly how you can fix all this for them.
All businesses need to communicate about their brand online.
But focus on those that address topics you control. You will be more efficient and it will be more fun for you.
34. Google Ad Specialist
If you have skills in the field of paid advertising on the Internet, this is a good way to make an income in parallel with your work.
So, manage the Adwords campaigns of companies.
The idea interests you, but you start?
Important advice after these 34 ideas
One of them may have inspired you a lot. And you say to yourself:
“This idea connects me to death! It is decided, I start. ”
Then comes the time to train if you start in the trade. And you start reading tons of free articles online to help you.
While this may be useful, but be careful …
When I started the online business, I literally siphoned off the free resources available on the web.
And I made all the possible mistakes by following bogus advice that significantly slowed my ascent.
My main mistake?
Do not have invested earlier in business or training. Because these are often paying.
35. Marketing Consultant
Many companies may offer concrete products and services, they, unfortunately, do not sell.
That’s why they hire freelancers to advise them in their marketing campaigns.
These consultants accompany them in their overall strategy for:
- Write the right contents
- Create effective email campaigns
- Build eye-catching sales pages
- Present the benefits they bring to their prospect to buy, etc.
If you have strong marketing skills and you feel able to help these companies sell their products and services with these many levers, this job is for you.
36. SEO Consultant
The majority of website traffic comes from Google.
And when you know that Google changes its algorithms hundreds of times a year, if you’re not an expert in the field, there’s enough to go crazy!
Every year thousands of sites lose some of their readers because they have not been able to adapt to these changes.
You can imagine how much companies want everything but that …
This is a great opportunity if you know about SEO.
Analyze their figures and you will be able to solicit those who will need your services the most.
37. Facebook advertising consultant
An idea very similar to that of Google’s advertising specialist.
Setting up a thoughtful Facebook Ads campaign can get a business off the ground very quickly.
Make sure you specialize in this discipline and you can sell your consulting services as long as Facebook exists.
The advantage of this business is that the optimization of these campaigns requires a constant maintenance work.
You can obtain long-term contracts with the companies for which you will work.
To do this, you will have to update your knowledge regularly, because, like Google, Facebook constantly changes its rules and technologies.
39. Productivity Consultant
It is often said that “time is money. ”
True, because improving productivity means increasing the value of your time.
But managing your time also means having better control over your life.
Here lies the mission of productivity experts: helping busy people to make the most of their time in their daily lives as well as their business.
A result they get through two separate levers:
- Establishment of habits and effective actions
- Getting started with tools that improve productivity
Time management has no secrets for you? Make it an activity.
40. Financial Advisor
Do you have a natural propensity to manage money?
What luck! Because your fields of application are immense. So, you choose your specialty:
Helps individuals save money or save money.
Retirement planning, choice of insurance options, selection of suitable banks … the list is long depending on your knowledge.
You can even become their stock adviser.
What if you go to businesses?
Help them earn higher returns with their money and grow their investments over the long term.
41. CV / hiring consultant
- You know how to write resumes and crazy cover letters.
- Preparing for job interviews is a formality for you.
What are you waiting for to help people win employment contracts?
For the record, when I was still employed, I changed businesses as I changed shirts.
And I could afford it …
My resume was a hit and I was so comfortable in face-to-face with recruiters that companies chose me very often.
I was not more qualified than another. My secret was simply in my preparation.
It gave me the idea to advise my friends.
I started reworking their resume and helped them prepare for their interviews.
The deal: if they were hired, they paid me a restaurant.
To be honest, it was not expensive to pay but it amused me. I was doing a favor to a friend and had a good evening with him.
It worked so well that I ended up making dozens.
Why did I stop?
Because too many stingy never invited me to the restaurant after getting their job … the bastards!
In short, your job is to take a critical look at your clients’ resumes and to brag about their strengths and skills in an optimal way.
Do not forget the design. Because as you know, most resumes are ugly.
By practicing this activity independently, you can go further by helping your clients prepare their interviews.
Note that you only need a computer and basic software to get you started.
Try it with a buddy or two at the start. And if you see that they are satisfied, go ahead.

- Etsy. …
42. Sell homemade products
Do you have the talent to create homemade products?
Art, vintage collections, jewelry or any other custom creations can be easily sold through Etsy, Bonanza, eBay or any site you like.
This business idea is perfect if you want to make money with your passion, without excessive investment and without leaving your job.
Here are 3 examples of handmade objects specific to this kind of shops:
The Internet creates enormous opportunities for people who can draw and sew custom clothing.
This can be for special events such as disguised parties, weddings or the birth of a child.
In short, if you have a style that suits you and you have always wanted to create your clothes, you now know how to pay your sewing machine.
Manufacture of soaps and cosmetics (Organic recipes)
Making your own soaps and cosmetics is less difficult than it seems. It’s all about time and patience.
For example, in Google: “DIY + cosmetics”.
You will be surprised to see the number of sites that teach you to make your own products.
Many people value homemade products. Especially if you add a touch of “organic” or “without chemicals”.
So, at work!
When I lived in Argentina, I made a friend who made her own jewelry.
He went to get his stones in the mountains to make bracelets, pendants, and earrings. Then he was going to sell them on the tourist markets.
But he did not have an internet connection at home …
You yes, then take this opportunity. Become artisan 2.0 using online shops to sell your productions.
43. Seller on TeeSpring
You design your t-shirt, you set a price, you add a goal and you start selling. Teespring will do all the rest: from production to shipping and customer support.
You will only have to pocket the profits (minus their commission of course).
If you can draw or create illustrations with software, this is a simple way to start your business on the net in a very short time.
44. Seller on Amazon (shipped from Amazon)
No, no! Amazon does not sell only books and mass market products.
By using Amazon’s shipping service, you get to benefit from personal storage for your products as well as a shipping service.
(If you live in Pakistan, use TCS service and now TCS also provide you a storage for your products if you can run the business)
As soon as you make sales, Amazon recovers your products, packages them, and forwards them directly to your customers.
45. Commercial to the commission
Many start-ups are looking for half-time paid commission salespeople. Especially when they start.
A job you can easily do at home.
If you are good at connecting easily with people and you are not afraid to take the risk of being rebuffed (it happens), this freelance job might be right for you.
After all, aim for those who have money and who have a proven product.
You can broaden your search by typing on Google “startups 2015 or 2017” with the keyword of a field of activity that interests you.
And if you succeed in making them earn money thanks to your commercial skills, your professional future is assured.
46. Distributor of patented products
It does not happen overnight, but the idea is:
- You mark a product distributed exclusively abroad.
- You do your little study on the French market to know if it is likely to be sold.
- And you patent the product to sell in Pakistan (or somewhere else).
Thus, you become the exclusive distributor.
Of course, you will have to travel to the country where the company owning the product is located.
And ask yourself the right questions before you start:
- Who will I contact to find the right products? Create a list of manufacturers in a given country.
- Who will I sell to? A landmark in advance who will be ready to buy them.
For a manufacturer, it is never easy to find a distributor abroad. There lies your advantage.
If you have correctly minimized your risks and have chosen a domain that you master, you have all the keys to gain a lot of money as a distributor.
So, invest smartly.
47. Buyer-reseller on Ebay
The Internet offers you countless opportunities to buy and resell products to earn income in parallel with your work.
And like Amazon, eBay is an ideal marketplace for selling anything and everything.
48. Subcontractor online
The idea is simple. Customer search for any freelance creative work: copywriting, SEO, marketing, graphics, development, etc.
Then delegate the contracts that you recover to an independent while remaining the privileged interlocutor of the customer…
By making a margin of course!
If you already have a foot in entrepreneurship, this is a fairly simple way to earn money in addition to your freelance work.
You will be able to accept more contracts and grow your income quickly.
It’s all about finding the right partners.
49. Buyer of ranked websites
Most sites are not worth it, but some of them can make you a lot of money.
So you can buy and resell websites like stocks.
You’ll have to rely on their traffic, current income, domain name, and other factors to get the most out of it.
No idea really hooks you up to 49?
Do not panic!
As I told you, this list is only there to inspire you.
The only effective way to find your profitable idea is to start by combining your interests with your strengths and skills to navigate your preferred areas.
Then to find out what needs and problems you can satisfy in these areas in order to draw business ideas that really fit you.
50. Airbnb Host
You have a room too much at home?
Not only is Airbnb an excellent way to make money by renting one of your rooms, but it’s a great opportunity to meet new people.
You can rent an entire apartment.
And if this apartment is near a tourist destination or downtown, you will have more chances to rent it for most of the year.
I am a huge fan of Airbnb and I spend a fortune on this post because I travel all year long.
In just 2018, I rented 5 apartments for 1 to 3 months each time. And I can assure you that the rents are not given …
52. Real Estate Advisor
Buying an apartment or a house with discernment is not easy.
This is why the majority of households are assisted by an expert to ensure their investment.
Do you already have a foot in real estate?
In short, this consists of connecting buyers and sellers, to negotiate and accompany them in the buying process by providing all the services necessary for their real estate transaction (apartment, house, land, business, etc.).
Significant detail: Commercial fiber is not an option in this business.
53. Independent accountant
Many growing startups are delegating the satellite tasks of their business to freelancers.
Human Resources, Administration and Accounting are the first positions they outsource.
A job perfectly suited to who wants to start parallel work to get started.
Because often it’s just a few hours of work a week to manage each client’s cash flow.
When analyzing the key figures of companies in Pakistan:
“2.4 million existing companies, 95% of them have less than 10 employees.” (Rough Idea)
The accounting of these small companies does not shine by its complexity and will be largely within your reach.
And with 19 million potential entrepreneurs in Pakistan in the coming years, the market will only grow.
It’s up to you to enjoy it.
54. Tax Specialist
All businesses must make sure they have reported their income. And the intervention of an expert is often necessary when it comes to:
- Put the capital gains of their investments in the right boxes
- Understand the subtleties of deductions and tax cuts
- Or understand the tax impacts of a change of situation
The tax expert also advises on investment strategies, the declarations to be completed, the forms to be filed and the deadlines to be respected.
A real “French” puzzle that you can take care of instead of entrepreneurs …
But also in the place of individuals that you accompany in their income tax returns, solidarity on wealth and property income.
It’s up to you to see which target you feel most comfortable with.
55. After-sales service representative
Many companies delegate their after-sales service to freelancers working directly from home.
The job is rather simple: answer questions that customers ask by mail or via social networks.
Of course, you are usually trained upstream to be able to answer the various queries correctly. Knowing that most answers are prepared in advance.
Then, you bring back the technical bugs to the internal team.
You can find this kind of offer by searching the internet.
In their specific case, you also moderate their social networks. Which is not worse to stimulate you a little brain.
This kind of job often does not ask you for more than 20 hours a week. Ideal if you are looking for an income supplement next to your regular job.
Some more ideas
If you can read and write another language perfectly? Enchaine the translations.
That’s how I started my first serious freelance job while still working full time.
So, if you are like me and you master a more specific vocabulary, think about offering your specialized translation services.
Do you know about it right? Go to companies that need to translate their legal documents.
An approach that you can apply to as many areas as there are specific languages (science, marketing, etc.).
The more specialized you are, the more you can claim a high hourly rate.
Suggested language to learn”
people who speak these languages usually don’t learn a foreign language so it’s a big opportunity for you to have more opportunity to gain the job.
57. Virtual Assistant
Today, many companies do not have the means or the workload to hire a full-time assistant.
They use the services of a virtual assistant. A practice more and more common in the workplace.
And with the increasing development of home-based businesses and activities, demand will only increase.
If you are someone organized and autonomous, offer your services of a virtual assistant to companies to:
- Check and reply to their emails
- Organize their task lists
- Update their blog or social networks
- Manage their calendar
- Or take charge of all other administrative tasks with the minimum of interaction
Especially since you will be able to approach successful people like entrepreneurs and build you a professional network.
58. Information Architect
A term less complicated than it looks since it consists of managing the research part of a company.
Your role is to find the resources necessary for its proper functioning and its editorial strategy.
It is therefore important to note, organize and store the important data.
You will work with the marketing section to provide sources of quality to the content creators and community managers of the company.
You will do the watch on his market, and you will be interested in competition and e-reputation.
In the smallest structures, the documentalist or architect of the information is brought to write press reviews, articles, studies or briefs for the blog of the company.
In short, if you are good at writing, that you have a great sense of organization and you master information technology, this is an interesting vein for you.
59. Data Analyst
Do you feel comfortable with the numbers?
Many companies need people who master data analysis.
Because they are overwhelmed with information about their customers, products, performance and so on.
Dealing with this dataset intelligently and providing meaningful insight makes the company evolve strategically to keep pace with the needs of its buyers.
The idea is to start with a specific area or work you know.
You will create statistics thanks to your knowledge of the databases to visualize at a glance the key elements to exploit.
In other words, you help these companies earn more customers and therefore more money.
60. Paid surveys
The idea here is to make you pay to answer online surveys.
Not always very stimulating intellectually, I grant you.
But this job is still easy to do at home a few hours a day in parallel with your work.
Take advantage of this long list found to register (for free) to all the most serious sites and start today.
61. Voice lender
Between movie dubbing, radio ads, TV trailers services, there are plenty of opportunities to use your voice.
Know how to seize them!
If you have the voice of Jean Rochefort or Monica Belucchi, it is already a good asset. But that is not enough…
Because you will have to know how to play the comedy like an actor by expressing the whole panel of possible emotions through your voice.
Otherwise, specialize in the field of the Net and multimedia that offers more and more opportunities.
Video games, CD-Rom, internet, or training videos are experiencing a growing need for voice professionals.
