Make it Work for You
Ready to make some money? Check out these five legitimate ideas.
- Virtual Assistant. Have a wealth of administrative experience? Companies are shifting to using a VA for a lot of their business needs. This could be responding to emails, setting up meetings or printing out reports or correspondence. Most virtual assistants start out ranging between $3 to $60 per hour and work anywhere from part-time to over 40 hours a week.
- Tutoring or Teaching. Do you have a teaching degree or a specialty skill you can share with others? If so, you are in high demand. Parents are looking for teachers to hone their child’s study skills. Some existing students are looking to broaden their horizons in a particular course or language. If you can do that, companies like Tutors.com pay well and want to hire you.
- Search Engine Evaluator. Love to scroll through the web and Google search for information? If so, a Search Engine Evaluator position may be for you. You’ll analyze the accuracy of search results and provide relevant feedback. Companies like Appen and Lionbridge offer competitive pay and start off around $9 per hour.
- Microtasks. If you type fast and follow directions well, micro-tasking may be a good home-based job for you. Sites like Amazon Mechanical Turk and Fiverr have hundreds of small tasks available for freelancers. Earn between $1 to $20 per task. If you can do several an hour, you’ll see a nice paycheck.
- Live Chat Operator. The chat boxes that pop up on websites need operators like you to talk to customers. No phone required. Sites like The Chat Shop help match up remote workers to answer customer service questions and promote deals. Pay varies, but averages around $9 to $10 an hour.
There are many options for remote working that don’t require yakking on the phone all day. That means you can still be a productive worker while tending to the kids and the occasional pestering spouse. Being there for family is important, but making money at home sweetens the deal.
