10 Best Freelance Jobs For Beginners
Snoozing your alarm at 8 AM, getting annoyed from passive-aggressive notes on the refrigerator, and spending hours on your CEO's spontaneous "growth" meetings, which are the same each time. Yes, we're talking about the traditional full-time working model that none of us seem to like much.
And if you've been searching for a freelance job on Google, you're definitely thinking about finding more flexible and enjoyable work, which you can do from anywhere. So here is our list of the best freelance jobs online that will help you be your own boss.
We'll start our list with non-technical freelance jobs that are remote and flexible:
1. Web designer
Are you into UI/UX? If yes, find a quick and free web design course, create a portfolio, and post it on freelancing platforms. Once you find your first client, you can officially call yourself a freelance web designer and enjoy your creative and fun work.
2. Content Writer
If you're into reading, analyzing, and writing, this one's for you. Many companies look for specialists that can help them bring more traffic to their website and improve their brand's digital presence. That's why content writing is so much in demand now. As a freelance content writer, you'll need to do some research, write blogs, and, most of the time, also know a little about SEO (especially keyword research) to utilize it in your articles.
3. SEO specialist
Talking about SEO. If writing isn't that much your thing, but you still are interested in website rankings, analytics and metrics, then you should try yourself as an SEO specialist.
Keep in mind, though, that this work also has a technical aspect to it, which might be a little challenging to figure out at first.
4. Online teacher
Is there something you're really good at? If you said yes, then the chances are high that you can teach it online. Becoming an online freelance teacher works especially well if you're teaching languages. But of course, you can also be an online instructor of digital marketing, SMM, coding, and pretty much anything else that can be taught remotely.
5. Graphic Designer
If you like the idea of creating posters, logos, and other visuals, then graphic design is for you. Don't worry; you don't need to know how to draw to become a graphic designer. Install Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, and start creating!
These ones are more for the ones who are into developing and IT-related jobs:
6. Front-end web developer
7. Back-end web developer
