11 Work From Home Jobs That Pays Well

11 Work From Home Jobs That Pays Well

In this article, I want to list the top 11 work from home jobs that I've either personally have experience with or that I know someone else that has. I have personally worked from a home either for myself or for someone else. I love working from home I even like working from home for someone else like I don't necessarily have to be self-employed to like it.

I think sometimes people just need a little idea of what it's possible and then encouragement to take action.

1. Home Delivery Driver

It isn't necessarily from home, but it is a great way to work for yourself. And that is becoming an Amazon or something similar delivery driver. I know this sounds crazy. I know this doesn't sound like the most glamorous option, but if you are in a hole right now, it's a great option. Drivers are able to make anywhere from $12 to $15 an hour and able to manage and work on their own time. And if you're looking for an option right now it is a great place to start. You don't have to be responsible for much other than delivering the items to customers, and why I suggested this because I realized that there's a lady locally who's clearly like an Amazon driver, but she drives her own car and it looks like she's relatively in control of what she's delivering and she picks and chooses her hours

There is a real need for this service right about now. I  actually think they're probably struggling to be able to fulfill all the orders that are required right about now, but they are trying to maintain their services, and I do think it is a great option for anyone who is out there who's thinking about how can they make a little extra money.

There are a lot of people who need this service. A virtual assistant might work for a business owner, an entrepreneur, a director of a company, or even a brand. A virtual assistant is someone who provides some of the administrative services that an individual is not able to do. You're basically like a helping hand. And you need to be someone who can do a little bit of everything. You need to be able to think on your feet, be great when it comes to communication, have really good written and communication skills. What I've found with virtual assistants is that they need to be organized and pro-active. 

If you're someone who's got like a go-getter attitude, you're really organized, you're really fast, and you're a problem solver, this could be a great option for you. Virtual assistants can be asked to do any and everything, but I think normally, and nowadays if you're doing it from home, it has to do a lot with the administration. It could be clearing inboxes, it could be sending emails, you can book certain things, you can do people shopping for them, you can organize their calendar, you can set up zoom meetings, they might even make some social post or Instagram posts to someone at that point in time. You're someone who's gonna do a little bit of everything.

How Can You Be A Virtual Assistant?

The one that you can do is ask the community, you can ask anybody that you know out there if they're in need of a virtual assistant, and tell them what skills you have. You can also search for virtual assistant jobs. There are specific websites where you can find a virtual assistant job and I've listed them below this article. You can also go into different freelance websites and offering your services on places like TaskRabbit or and Fiverr. People might want to find someone who can help them can a little task here and there.



3. Transcription/ Translation

These are two different things but are similar. If you're someone who is able to write and speak in a different language. There's a lot of people right now who are transcribing content, and if you are someone who can type fast in general, there are options out there for people who just want transcribers. Video is everywhere, video is essential in all business, but nowadays, people also need verbal also written. 


4. Participate In Market Research

Did you know that you can get paid to what TV? There are people out there who are paid, TV reviewers. There's a website I've put below this article. You are rewarded for your TV opinions, they want to hear from you, they want to hear what you say about shows, good, the bad, the ugly. Because they want to know what customers think or what people want from more content that is created because entertainment is a huge business, but if it's not entertaining then they're all going to be struggling. So your insight is required. If you can watch TV from home and make money it's a great option because you're probably watching it already.


5. Online Surveys/ Research

I know that it can be a bit spammy and a bit cringing, you don't get much from it, but if you are between a rock and a hard place, you're sitting at home, go on a few websites, do a few surveys, do a few reviews, and make some money out there. There are lots of different websites that allowed you to do that, but I do think it's really valuable if you're not doing anything else. 

No website. Do your own research for a good survey website

6. Set Up An Online Store

I believe that we are in a world where people love things that other people love. I think the reseller market is going to explode. I think you're gonna be able to buy it and sell clothing, your own clothing, or things that are pre-loved way more, and there are websites such as deepop, and of course, eBay, and vestiarecollective, and these are ways one that you can make money. You can sell your own clothing on these websites if you want to, but actually, if you have an audience, if you have a market, if you have friends and family, why not create your own website, and sell your items that are either your old items or even new items that you might create on there, why not do that? This is a great way to start your own business. Sometimes if you want to test the market as well, why not post up some of the things that you already have rather than investing millions or hundreds into making your own products, and see if what you have already sold.

Test the market and make some money in the process. Now, if you are going to sell items, make sure they're good quality, make sure they're clean, make sure that you are providing good value to your customers. Don't try and fraud anyone out there, make sure you deliver the items that you are planning and selling to them.


7. Write A Book

If you are someone who is good at writing if you are someone who is creative. There are a few options here especially like the one that I mentioned in the very beginning, you can write your own book and publish. We've all got time on our hands I'm sure that they're those of you who are out there who are in that space you're probably thinking, man, I've always wanted to write a book. Now, is the time that you could do that.

It could be just a short story or poetry or if you want to do a whole Harry Potter novel series, you can do that and you don't need to wait for a publisher to help me do it. You can do self-publishing on Amazon. There is Kindle direct publishing and it allows you to write if you are skilled and publish your own book. And if you write something that's good enough, people are going to pick it up. Usually, you want to think about writing something that is valuable, useful, or really entertaining, and right now people are looking for options like that.


8. Copywriting/ Freelance Writing

If you don't want to write a book, when it also comes to the writing side of things, you can also do the copywriting, and also being a freelance writing contributor. There are so many people who are looking for people who have got writing skills from big websites such as BuzzFeed to Forbes, they use freelance writers, and they pay them per article. If you're someone who's good at writing, why not write something for free, send these into different locations and awfully offer your services as a freelance writer. And if you want to work for the big publications, find. But there are also small businesses and individuals who might need you to write for them, who might need you to update their blog for them, all write social posted them. If you can write, you can offer your services.


9. Start A Youtube Channel

If you're at home, if you've got a phone, you can start a YouTube channel. I don't want put stress on this one so much, because I think people can get caught up in the idea of what it is to be a social influencer, or what it takes to start a social media channel. Yes, It is really valuable, yes, you can still make money on it, yes, so many people are on it, but they are still room, and yes, you can make some money doing it. But it does take time, it does take effort, and you need to be willing to put in the work, but you can make money from home doing it.

The only thing I will say is that you don't get the money straight away unless you go viral.

10. Vidoe/ Audio Editing

I think this is something that is really important because it's something that I do all the time, and I think when you're thinking about all the ways that you can make money at home, you have to think about what's going on in the world. Where is the business going, where is the world going, and video is so important. Audio is really important. If you are someone who can teach yourself to edit you can get a nice salary doing this

It might not just be YouTube videos, it might be Instagram videos, it might be Twitter videos, it might be content that they use on their own websites or for corporate content. There are so many people who need these services out there

How Do You Learn How To Edit?

You can watch YouTube videos to learn how to use the software that is out there. Most people use Final Cut Pro, iMovie, After Effects, Premiere, and Photoshop. These are the key ones that you can learn. If you want to learn how to use that final cut, they have a free trial for 7 days. So teach yourself within seven days

11. Remote Teaching

I think that there's a real opportunity here, and I think if you are someone who can hold someone's attention, you know, you might be a music teacher, or you might be a math teacher, or you might be able to do something like help someone with their homework, you can do this online. You can do this from home. This pandemic has shown that you don't have to be with people in person to help them. If you have a skill that you can teach. You can teach you online.

The barriers to entry to sharing your skills and teaching people what you know are even lower so I suggest you put something together, you market yourself creatively, and you get to it, and the great thing about teaching a skill that you already have is that it doesn't cost anything, it's free, you don't have to invest in inventory, all you need to do is invest in your time, your knowledge, and then your delivery.
