Writing articles for yourself – blogging
A lot of experienced freelancers will tell you that this is their favorite part-time online job. It is the most flexible one, that is for sure.
Bloggers write about topics they are interested in, and that will help their readers to solve some problems.
The greatest advantage of a blog is that you can combine different ways to make money. You can increase your profit by selling products, using affiliate marketing, or creating sponsored content.
In the very beginning, you shouldn’t expect any profit from your blog. First, you need to create relevant and good quality content that will be recognized as useful by your potential readers and Google.
It takes a lot of time and effort, but once you start earning – the sky is the limit.
The more you work, the more money you will earn.
One more great thing about the blog is that it’s super easy and free to create. For beginners, we strongly recommend WordPress.
Online Travel Agent
Here is one more thing that you can do not just for the others, but for yourself too. Have you considered becoming a travel agent? Maybe this thought never occurred to you, but if you enjoy traveling, then why not?
If you are constantly in search of cheap airplane tickets and affordable places to stay or planning your future trips and vacations for yourself, you should start doing that for others. Not for free.
There are two options – you can work for some agency or even start your own business. No matter what you choose, it’s a perfect opportunity to combine business and pleasure.
Salary for this job is up to $60.000 a year, but it depends on how many clients you have and how experienced you are.

If you like being around children and have a passion for teaching them, this may be the ideal job for you. Only requirements are to have a Bachelor’s degree and for some schools TESOL or TEFL certificate (Teaching English as Second Language/Teaching English as Foreign Language).

It depends on the school, but online English teachers are usually paid from $20 to $40. You can earn up to $2000 a month for working only 3 hours a day.
Our suggestion is to apply to VIPKID or some other online English teaching platform. Teacher selection is based on an interview, English test, and/or Demo class. Every school has a different hiring process, but you should definitely give it a try.
It is very similar to the last one, except you will be teaching people from all around the world something that you are good at (it doesn’t have to be the English language, but it can if you want).
If there is some particular subject (or even subjects) that you are good at (math, history, science, physics…) and you are glad to help someone to learn it (them) too, being an online tutor can be your dream job.

Social Media Manager
Being an active social media user isn’t enough to be a social media manager as well. This job requires doing researches, creating (and proofreading) media content, managing campaigns, and public relations to build a strong brand and improve one company’s business.
It can be hard in the beginning, especially in a phase where you are learning about the company you work for. After that, when you meet your client and his needs, it will be easy for you to do your job.
There are certain skill sets and knowledge that you need to have if you want to do this type of job. Using social media every day can be helpful, but you will have to learn a lot.
If you think that you can make it, you should know that the average salary for this position is $47.000 per year, but it can be much, much more.

Creating websites and mobile apps aren’t the only thing that designers do. Creating a logo, brochure, book cover, clothes, and adds is part of the graphic design too. There are also different types of design – minimalistic, creative, modern, vintage… We are sure that you will find something that you are good at if you see yourself as a creative person.
This is not an easy thing to do, and you will need to know to work in some of the programs like Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. Besides that, it is preferable that you have a portfolio of your work. Before hiring you, potential clients might want to check out your style and see if it’s suitable for their project.
The average rate per hour is around $45, but it can vary from $20 to $150. It all depends on you and your skills.
If you are interested, you can find job posts related to graphic design on numerous freelance sites since it becomes very popular in the past few years.

Creating a good plan will provide you to earn money and also to have some time for yourself.
There is no such thing as easy begging, but every investment in yourself is a good investment.
