If you are someone who enjoys reading and is keen to notice corrections, grammatical and spelling errors you can try being a proofreader.

It also doesn’t require many tools and can be very easy especially for those who have a degree or background in the English language. You can make anywhere from $25-50 but it still depends on your level of expertise.

Graphic Design

This is for those who have creative skills. You can offer designs for small businesses to start then scale up once you gained experience and clients. As a freelance graphic designer, you can opt to be a generalist or specialist. Meaning you can look for a particular service you are extremely good at, or you can be open to any type of design job, learn and become good at it in the process. Newbies can charge up to$25/hour and increase as you grow and develop. Experienced designers charge up to 300/hr. Crazy awesome right!

Are you organized and good at communication? You better try this job. So the role of a virtual assistant is to help their employers with administrative tasks. This includes filing, emails, and schedules. You must be willing to take phone calls and answer emails. It is important to build good relationships with your employer to establish a good working experience even though it is a remote job. As a virtual assistant, you can earn from $6-$14 per hour.

This job is getting more popular since nowadays not only do businesses hire video editors but YouTube vloggers as well. If you know with video editing you can grab this opportunity to earn even in the comforts of your home. You just need a working desktop or laptop with sufficient specs to support the program where you will edit the videos. You can earn around $26/hour being a video editor.

Online Teaching

In my personal opinion, there is always a job opportunity in teaching. Online teaching is vastly popular in today’s situation. A lot of people want to master certain languages especially English. Not only that, but you can also teach general subjects. Anything that will help a person to become good at something. Depending on the company you teach, you can earn around $14-23. With a lot of websites posting job openings for teachers or someone who wants to do online teaching I’m sure you will land a job.


I’m sure you notice how popular YouTube is today especially when people find out that you can earn from it. If you have a passion or a skill that you want to share with others this is a great platform to do so. You can film yourself or if you are shy you can do voiceovers. Remember that, for you to be monetized on your videos you must have 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time within the past 12 months.  If you are truly dedicated and interested then I don’t see any reason not to try this. Who knows, with valuable content, you will attract a lot of following over time.
