Are you looking for a more flexible job? Perhaps you want a job that you can do as you travel the world. Maybe you’re sick of being stuck in stuffy office day in and day out. If you’re thinking about other opportunities and you want to have more flexibility in your work, it’s worth finding out what kind of jobs you can do remotely. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
If you’ve got good writing skills, you may want to consider a career in copywriting. It may not pay big money, but it will certainly cover the bills. If you’re planning on travelling as you work, you may only need to do four hours of work a day to cover the costs of travelling and staying in some of the low-cost countries. Rather than trying to find clients in different countries, try working for a digital marketing company that won’t mind where in the world you work from. It’s regular and flexible work for anyone that’s in different time zones regularly.
Setting yourself up as a freelance virtual assistant won’t take much. As long as you have a working mobile phone and a good laptop, you won’t need much else. If you’re someone who is highly organised, virtual assistance could be the perfect job for you. It involves answering emails, managing social media accounts, answering Skype calls and more. You may want to invest in a Macbook for a job like this and get a complete guide on copying and pasting. It could save you a significant amount of time.
If you’re fluent in more than one language, there are plenty of opportunities out there for you. The first would be tutoring others in English. Being a tutor will only require you to have Skype conversations with others to improve their language skills. The second is a document translator for foreign companies working with British or American businesses. You could also get jobs as tour guides if you intend on travelling.
Social Media Manager
Social media can certainly be a full-time job. In fact, many business owners could spend their entire days online answering messages, comments and posting content. Taking that burden from a business owner frees up their time to tackle more important tasks. There isn’t a successful company these days without a dedicated social media team. If you spend a lot of time on social media, you may as well make some money out of it.
Are you a dab hand at designing websites? Businesses can’t survive without a website. If nothing else, having an active website gives clients a reason to trust a business. Without a website, a business can look old fashioned or untrustworthy. If you have the skills to build professional looking web pages, use them to your advantage. It could even help you to relocate to a different country if you wanted to.
There are many jobs you can do as a freelancer; you just have to find your passion.
