10. Work as a Virtual Assistant
Blog owners, business owners and sole proprietors look for virtual assistants to help them run their businesses. If you work from home as a virtual assistant, you could make decent money doing a variety of tasks.
Virtual assistants do different tasks such as:
- Data entry
- Invoicing customers
- Handling accounts receivable
- Making phone calls
- Sending and answering emails and other messages
- Conducting research over the internet
- Making appointments
- Managing Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts
- Blog management
- Graphic design
- Customer service
- And much more
Businesses like to hire freelance virtual assistants because it saves them from having to have an employee. As a beginner virtual assistant, you might make between $5 and $15 an hour. However, as your experience grows, so does your pay.
It’s not uncommon for experienced virtual assistants to make $30 an hour or more. That’s $1500 per week if you do it full-time.
Look for jobs at online websites such as Upwork. Or approach blog or business owners to ask if they need someone to help them manage their workload.
So if you’re responsible and efficient, you could make some quick cash doing short-term virtual assistant work. And if you like it, you could turn it into a full-time career.
