It is of no doubt that remote working is the new way of work.
Although the pandemic was hard on some of us (especially in employment), I am blessed to say that things were slightly different for me.
I did not have problems looking for remote working jobs. In fact, my income increased tremendously when I started looking for remote work.
This is because of two reasons:
- I knew which jobs to start applying for that needed very little experience.
- I educated myself by reading free articles, watching videos, and also invested in paid courses.
Now not everyone has the funds to purchase courses to upskill themselves.
This is why I would like to share with you 4 online jobs that do not need you to have much experience to apply for.
You also do not need to invest any capital to start.
When we refer to being a graphic designer, many of us think of the software Adobe Photoshop.
In 2021, a graphic designer does not necessarily need to know how to use Adobe Photoshop (if you do know how to use this software, then that’s great!).
Everybody these days is using Canva. It is a free tool to design various things one might need for their business.
Some templates to design includes:
- Business Cards
- Social Media Posts
- Portfolios, and many more!
Don’t get me wrong, a person with photoshop skills is probably going to be better at designing and must have gone through a lot of training to become a graphic designer.
But with Canva being a free tool, graphic designing is made easier and can be done by almost anyone.
You do not need experience because there are templates for you to switch out pictures, colours, and fonts to make the design seem like your own.
This is an easy way to become a graphic designer with little to no experience.
If you want to take this remote work seriously, you can invest in Canva Pro which gives you more design freedom for only RM30 per month.
Or, Canva Pro gives you a 1-month trial. Make use of it while you can!
This is my personal favourite because you literally only need two things – your brains (to research) and a laptop (to write).
The easiest and fastest way to make money online is freelance writing,
Digital marketing is soaring in 2021 and will continue to do so in the next few years.
Every website, social media, or business needs someone to write for them.
I created a FREE freelance writing guide. These were the exact steps I took to make a full-time income from writing.
If you want to take writing seriously and make your passion a full-time job, I recommend these two courses that helped me get to where I am today:
This is something not many people think about.
It is a remote job that is often overlooked although some people have reported making a minimum of $28,000 per year.
A virtual assistant is someone who helps someone with online tasks.
A person usually hires a virtual assistant because they do not have the time to do these tasks although these tasks are quite simple.
Some tasks of a virtual assistant are:
- Online shopping
- Data collection
- Managing Excel sheets
- Send and reply emails
- Making sales calls
- Managing calendars and meetings.
Social Media Manager
Finally, we have the most popular remote work job – Social Media Managing.
Everybody uses social media and almost every business is on one or more social media platforms.
This is pretty self-explanatory.
In case you didn’t know, here are some of the responsibilities of a social media manager:
- Scheduling posts
- Setting up profiles
- Creating graphics
- Responding to customer service inquiries
- Finding relevant content to share
- Optimizing profiles and posts for organic reach
There you have it, 4 online jobs anyone can do with little to no experience. I hope this helps you start your remote work journey!
