When I first heard about freelancing, I was in an impression that only programmers can do freelancing. But it is just a myth most of us still believe.
Writing, Designing are other two categories which are more popular than programming. There are so many freelancing jobs that everyone can do with a very little polishing on some skills.
It doesn’t mean that these are low paying freelancing jobs, but these are the skills most of the people are unaware about. Other fact is if you are good at something, anything, it could be useful to build a freelancing career. These are few of many skills that can give you freelancing work anytime:
Facebook, Twitter and other social media skyrocketed in terms of popularity. Almost everyone use them nowadays.
Revolution in social media forced all small, mid, big size companies to shift their marketing campaigns in social media. They always require social media experts.
Not only businesses but celebrities, bands, social figures, politicians, artists need social media experts to maintain their online image.
If you are good in explaining concepts, online tutoring could earn you great money. Depending on the skills, tutors charge around $10-25.
It is not only about the traditional subjects. You can give lessons about social media, photography, videography or anything you are good in.
Data entry jobs do not require any specific skills except typing. If you are good in typing, it could earn you good money over a weekend. Though, there is no specific nature of data entry work but it is always in demand.
As a virtual assistant you need to manage things for your client. It is more like a personal assistance, but remote.
Customer service is another good option which requires good communication skills. It could be over the phone support or email support. Also, there is an option of email and telemarketing.
