Right now, a lot of people are looking for work-from-home jobs or to create an online business, and I have been working from my house for six years solid. I remember when I was first starting out, I was trying to scour the internet and any resource I could find on how exactly to create a work from home job, and career, and business, etc, and it was so overwhelming.
So I want to share with you right now all the resources you need to build your online business, to create a work-from-home job, and I will give you my top nine high-paying online jobs for this moment. Now what I will say is this is not the kind of thing where you can make money overnights, and you can just set this up, and it’s going to happen and run overnight. Some of these will if you have the skillsets, but some of them are going to be learned skillsets.
So just keep in mind you need to have a growth mindset, and you need to understand that there may be some skills you might need to invest in for yourself in order to create these jobs or create these businesses but it’s worth it. When you can have true location independence and build your business from your laptop.
Let’s dive into first and foremost the resources that you’re going to want to keep track of in order to find work from home jobs and to get inspiration for creating your business. So the best resources out there that I’ve found are Fiverr, Upwork, Craigslist, Glassdoor, Freelancer, and Amazon.
1. Virtual Assistant
This is so in demand right now and so necessary. So I hired my virtual assistant over a year ago now and it was probably one of the best hires I’ve ever made in my business and we’ve never met real life, but we talk every day, and the thing about being a virtual assistant is that you kind of are a Jill or a Jack of all trades.
So you learn the ins and outs of someone’s business very quickly. My virtual assistant has actually moved from that role into being an overall business manager, and she’s now working full time with me.
It is a huge opportunity for growth inside of a business, and if you look at the trends of what’s happening with online business and the fact that online courses are going to be $1 billion a day industry by 2025, there are so many entrepreneurs out who need good virtual assistants.
So there are a ton of resources to find virtual assistant jobs but here are a few that you need to know about finding virtual assistant jobs. You can use things like Indeed or LinkedIn and all of the sites that I mentioned previously. Plus, there are some great sites called hiremymom.com.
2. Online Contractor
The second high-paying job that you can create for yourself from home is an online contractor. Now, I could have made a bunch of different jobs individually for this, but I want to just give you this concept because it depends on your skillset.
So there are so many things that you can do here. I started as a social media manager and contractor, and I started by charging $20 an hour and I worked my way up to $150 an hour and then turned that into thousands of dollars a month on retainers with my clients. I did that for four or five years. I had no brand, no social media following, and my business just grew by word of mouth before diving into YouTube and all of that goodness.
So you can absolutely hone your skillset and craft by learning from other people and many resources on how to manage social media accounts and how to work with clients to build their social media following and make them profitable very easily. There are so many resources out there.
So social media managers and coordinators are in high demand, especially for online entrepreneurs, but also for physical offline businesses as well.
The other jobs that go under the online contractor are graphic designer, video editor, web designer, YouTube manager. There are a lot of YouTube channels out there who need help with their management.
Now another really highly profitable online contractor job is a paid ads manager. There are a lot of resources out there to learn how to run efficient and effective and highly profitable Facebook ad campaigns, YouTube ad campaigns, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Instagram. There are so many ways that people are running paid ads and paid traffic now putting millions of dollars into it, and they want to make sure that they’re run efficiently.
So if you can learn paid ads, as a skill, you can be making tens of thousands of dollars a month because a lot of the times paid on a percentage of the ad spend or the percentage of the profit from what you’re making for your clients, and so it is a very profitable, very lucrative skillset to learn, and you can run it entirely from your laptop.
3. Course Creator
The third work from home job or work from home business is a course creator. It is a way to impact people, share your knowledge, and earn money. You can take your knowledge and put it into an online course, a digital product. Digital products are very successful right now. As I said, this particular industry is going to grow to $1 billion a day by 2025 so you have a piece of the pie waiting for you to create your online course, your online program.

The fourth online or work from home job that I highly recommend is YouTuber. So obviously I am not the kind of person who’s going to say, “Yeah, get into YouTube, you’re going to make money overnight.”. However, it is an amazing way to truly create passive income.
You are getting paid from AdSense once you hit the requirements of 4,000 hours of watch time, a thousand subscribers on your channel, and once you’re part of the partner program.
So becoming a YouTuber is an amazing way because there are so many revenue options when it comes to being a YouTuber. You can make money from brand deals, sponsorships, AdSense with selling your online courses, etc. There are so many ways to monetize your particular message using YouTube.

The fifth, the work from home job, which is so in demand right now is salespeople. There are virtual sales teams all over the world, and they make commissions from sales. You can work completely remotely to do this kind of job.
There are so many people who are looking for incredible salespeople. So if you are a salesperson, if you’ve worked in sales, you can definitely find a job in virtual sales for whether it’s a coach, consultant, course creator, etc, or any other type of business.
There are telecommunications companies that hire virtual salespeople all the time. So that’s another job to be looking into where you can be making thousands of dollars every single month.
6. SEO Consultant
An SEO consultant or an SEO manager is so efficient. It’s so effective because everybody needs to know how to rank on Google. It is the largest search engine in the world. So if you could help people do that and help them rank their businesses, it’s an incredible way for you to make a very good living doing so.
It’s a huge pain point for a lot of companies now because they don’t know how to work in the online space, they don’t know how to operate in the algorithms using Google, using YouTube, using all these things with SEO. So if you know how to do it, it is a very in-demand skill set.
Now, this might seem like it isn’t the most interesting thing in the world, but you’d be surprised at how many people need translation services now. With online content being dispersed globally, there are so many opportunities to translate a certain language into another language so you can reach more people. Websites need to translate their blog content into another language so they can reach more people. This works across the board in so many different industries.
It doesn’t even have to be an online business particularly but if there’s any kind of online presence, there is an opportunity for translation skills. You can find jobs for this on Amazon, Upwork, and all the other places that I mentioned earlier.

The next thing is transcriptions, kind of like translating, kind of not but transcriptions are basically taking audio versions or video versions of content and putting it into a written note transcription. So Amazon actually again is an amazing resource for this and they have a whole job board of just work from home jobs, and you can find jobs on there for transcriptions, and it’s completely virtual jobs and location independent.
How to find a job on Amazon? Go into Amazon and scroll down to the bottom. You will see the section called “Get to Know Us”, and below you find “Careers”. Click on it and go to “View remote jobs“.
This is really great because it’s an entire section full of virtual job opportunities. Also, you can find a work-from-home specific category, and this shows you all of the work-from-home jobs that they have available right now.
If you type in the search “Data Associate, Alexa Data Sevices”, you will get a list of transcription jobs. Pay attention to those that offer virtual positions.
9. Online Tutor
The final job I want to mention is online tutoring. There is a huge need for this. I know a lot of people who are going overseas to teach English, and now a lot of those services have gone completely virtual.
For online tutoring jobs, there is only one main requirement, and it is having a really solid understanding of the English language or whatever language you want to teach. So that’s a really great opportunity for anybody who’s in the education space, who wants to go online teaching English. Teaching another language is an amazing way to create a work from home job, completely virtual drop as well.
I hope this information will help you create your work-from-home online business because I know now more than ever we need that opportunity and that option. Please share it with your family, friends, and social media.
