There’s a saying that tells us that there is no such thing as easy money,
and for sure when you see online some ad telling you can get rich quick
with little effort there will be a catch.
The catch is that it’s a lie, and no, you won’t get rich quick from spending little effort and
not using your brain. But there are plenty of ways you can wake up in the morning and not
even get dressed,fire up the computer, and start earning cash.
Today we’ll look at some of the best jobs you can do online. If one of these make sense for
you than there are more in depth articles on these side gigs here at Save Your Bucks.com
and websites like OnlineAuctionU.com. It is you job to find the gig that interest you and
then do your research, and self education. If at all possible find a real mentor involved
with the side gig.
When someone asks you what you do for a living and you say writer, does that mean you’re
a successful novelist, an investigative journalist,or you describe household products? Noone
in this world is going to walk into the first two jobs. Those crafts take years to hone, but simple
product description or some copywriting gigs are not hard to land and you can start making
money now. You’ll of course have to have some degree of talent, be reliable and meet deadlines,
but you don’t need to be Jonathan Franzen to write about washing machines or describe the
downtown area of a city.
When you start this kind of work you might only be earning around $10 an hour, but a skilled
copywriter with a decent portfolio can earn a lot of money, and we are talking in the region of
$100 an hour. You might begin your life as a copywriter using online freelancing sites, but once
you have some contracts under your belt and have proven your worth you can branch out.
Just Google remote writing work and you will see before you a lot of jobs. Don’t be put off by
firms paying terrible wages, because when you pay peanuts you inevitably get bad writers. If
you are good at this, trust us, you’ll get hired. No more interviews for you, because when firms
are looking for writers they go on what you have done, not who you are.
You could be tapping away in your underwear and paying the bills in no time. It also helps if you’re
willing to do humiliating 30 day challenges.
9. Software Architect
So, what exactly is this job? We’ll let a job site explain it for you. “Some of the duties of a remote software
architect include understanding product system requirements and architecture, maintaining
an architecture roadmap and designing co-rearch & testing.
”The problem with this job is you will very likely need some university education in math and science,
although if you ask around you’ll find quite a few software architects that are self-taught. Lots of these
folks work from home. In fact, most of them do. It’s often contract work, although you might find you’ll
be working with the same company for a long time.
Looking at remote work online you can do right now can net you over $100,000 a year?
No office, no ties, no getting told off for being late. As the IT industry is so huge and will just get bigger,
if you become an expert in this field you can almost guarantee regular work.
8. Nurse Practitioner
We bet you didn’t think this would be on the list, but we are told if you do this job you can also bring in
over $100,000 a year. What do they do? This is the description given by FlexJobs. “Licensed nurse
practitioners can remotely triage and provide medical care, provide medical and wellness education,
diagnose and treat patients and assist with care coordination. ”According to the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
nurse practitioners are in demand right now,and even starting out you might get $50,000 a year. You’ll need to
have graduated high school and studied nursing.
You’ll then have to get your registered nurse license and have one to two years’experience before you go at it
alone. Once you are qualified you can do this work remotely. We looked online and indeed found a few jobs
for these remote nurses.
7. Corporate Counsel
People need advice about their health and they also need legal advice, and these days not every person who gives such advice has an office. FlexJobs tells us that these people can earn in the region of $115,000 a year.
How do you get the job, though? You’ll need a law degree in most states, and if you have specialized in
corporate law you’ll really be in demand. In the U. S. you’ll also have to have passed the bar exam. You
really don’t need an office at all as much of the time you can talk to people using video chat or the phone.
If you’ve seen the show Better Call Saul, you’ll know that Saul didn’t really need an office. This is one
description given of this job: “Corporate counsels are lawyers who works directly for a business or company.
They may also be known as in-house counselors. Rather than working for a variety of clients,
they devote all their talents and energy to their employer. ”
6. Software Engineer
If you’re a software engineer it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be working with
systems in a company, you could be doing all manner of things. You’ll need to
understand programming languages and you’ll need to stay on the ball concerning
how they evolve.
People will tell you that you have to go to university to become proficient in these languages,
but that is not always the case. Many of these people are self-taught and don’t even have a
degree. If you are good and reliable there is work for you, and we are talking a lot of work.
As for how much you’ll earn, well, the sky is the limit with this job. Just look online for junior
or senior developers and you’ll find literally thousands and thousands of companies that want to
hire someone. Many are looking for what are sometimes called digital nomads, so you could do
this work from home or from a beach in Thailand.
Trust us, go to those beaches and you will find plenty of software engineers raking in the cash while
sipping on Pina Coladas.
A remote pharmacist, is there such a thing you might ask?
The answer is yes, and they can pull in over $120,000 a month according to FlexJobs. This is the
description given of this work:
“Licensed pharmacists can find remote positions that require the ability to review prescriptions,
ensure authorizations, handle phone calls and process requests. ”You’ll have to get qualified and
get a license, and one job we found in Canada asked that the applicant had at least two years’ experience
in the field of pharmacy.
That job paid 50 Canadian bucks an hour, so that’s about 38 American dollars an hour. In fact, if you
check out the job site Indeed you can find plenty of jobs for remote pharmacists. We’ll be honest, we
didn’t know such a job existed, either.
We found more remote work for people with doctoral degrees in pharmacy and the pay was over $150,000,
but of course getting to this stage is no easy thing. Another job we found was remote processing
of prescriptions, so you could be sitting at home and just giving out medicine. The job was part-time,
but hey, it surely couldn’t be that hard to do.
4. Selling stuff
Yes, you can basically just sell things online. We found one girl who bought luxury bags second hand and then sold them on Facebook and she was making a killing.
We found another woman who had done over a million dollars in sales on Facebook and
believe or not her product was cross-stitching. She was pulling in around $90,000
Don’t underestimate how much you can make using that free platform. You must find a niche
of course, as she did, and then we suggest you create a page on Facebook with lots of nice photos.
You’ll need to create a brand and keep updating that page. And hey, once you are successful you
can then start teaching others how to do it. There are so many people out there in the digital
nomad world who have made some money and then decided to teach others how to make money.
We should say this sometimes looks like a virtual pyramid scheme, but there are talented people
who can show you how to make some cash. You can find several at onlinauctionu.com
3. Data Scientist
This is another tech job but it’s quite different from the ones we have already mentioned. You’ll
need to be intuitive to do this job because you’ll be looking at raw data and then trying to figure out
what it means.
You’ll very likely have to be qualified in this line of work, and many data scientists
will have a master’s degree. This is one job description we found:
“Found at the cross section of business and information technology, a data scientist
is a professional with the capabilities togather large amounts of data to analyze and
synthesize the information into actionableplans for companies and other organizations.
”We then went to GlassDoor to look for remote jobs and found quite a few. The pay was
somewhere between 100,00 and 150,000 bucks a year and you never have to leave your
2. Physician Tele-Medicine
Yes, you can be an online doctor. There is now something called “telemedicine”
and so doctors consult with patients online and sometimes give prescriptions for
medicine. We are not sure if you follow news about the company Amazon, but it
recently started offering online medical care for some of its staff. This is going to blow
up soon, and many consultations will be done online. The problem of course for you is
that you’ll have to become a qualified physician, which takes many years. We went to
Indeed and found remote telemedicine work, and you can get paid up to $200,000
You can go to a website called Nomad List and find all sorts of information as to where you can work. It
gives a list of the best cities to work remotely, with the top five being Budapest,then Bali, then Belgrade, then
Bangkok and then Lisbon. So, do you think you’d be up for some remote work? Have you done it before?
Can you add to this list of jobs? Where would you like to work if you had the
