According to estimates, 4.7 million Americans are working remotely now. Upwork, a popular online freelancing platform, feels that 22 percent of the American workforce, or 36.2 million people will be working from home by 2025. The Covid pandemic has certainly given a boost to online jobs. But even before that, a lot of people were already working from home and making good money too. This trend is likely to continue.
The ability to work remotely from home is certainly one of the top benefits of technology. It has opened the doors to hundreds of job opportunities. Armed with a simple laptop and a fast internet connection you can finally achieve the perfect work-life balance.
There are plenty of online work opportunities that need different skills. Many of them are highly paid as well. Here are three of the best jobs you can do from home –
- OnlyFans Content Creators
OnlyFans is a social media platform with a difference. It allows creators to publish their videos and photos online and make money from paid views. The content is often adult-oriented. You will find many escorts, webcam models, and even porn stars on the network. But, you will also find many non-porn creators as well, such as Cardi B, Jane Kim Fitness, Melissa Keklak, the musician and drag queen Shea Couleé, Tom Tippin, the British actress Georgia Hirst, German DJ Ben Bakson, and others.
However, it can sometimes be difficult to find the creators you like here because the network does not provide users with the ability to search by various parameters. It will be easier to find OnlyFans content creators by using a third-party website like OnlySelects.
Find the creators, look at what they are doing, and you will get many ideas. For example, you can publish fitness tutorials, teach cooking or photography, and show makeup tricks. Of course, you can also make money through adult content.
- Virtual Administrative Assistant
An administrative assistant has a varied job profile. The person will have to schedule appointments, plan meetings, take notes, help in research, maintain schedules, invoice clients, maintain filing systems, and so much more. With developments in technology, administrative assistants can now work from out of the office, even from a home office.
Sometimes, the work can be clerical, and at other times, it may require more skills. Many administrative assistants work for several clients, while others are full-time employees of one company.
The pay is good too. In the US, an administrative assistant working from home can expect to make $17.31 per hour on average. Of course, those who are more experienced can earn even more.
- Copywriter/Content Writer
The primary job of a copywriter or content writer is to write or edit content or advertising copy. This can be writing copy for a website, articles, blog posts, press releases, emails, sales copies, captions, and even advertisement copies for platforms like Facebook and Google Adwords. A senior person will be more involved with editing work, especially when working for a large organization, while a junior writer will be doing more of the initial writing.
A good writer will be a creative person. But the writer also needs commercial skills because the copy must achieve the desired call-to-action to be effective. It can be a lead or a sale. Copywriters/content writers can also work as social media managers because there is a lot of writing on social media platforms. Of course, a few more skills are needed.
Most writers work for many clients. On average, a writer can make $53,444 every year. For a social media manager with writing skills, the average annual salary in the US is $60,023.
There are many benefits of working from home. You don’t have to travel to work daily, you can give more time to your family, and you can choose to work in your own time at your own pace. You will get a better work-life balance. It can be financially rewarding as well. Luckily, there are many platforms where you can search for online jobs. You are sure to find a job that meets your skills and experience.
