50 WORK FROM HOME THAT YOU CAN BEGIN TODAY
Not my dear friends, working from home is not a utopia! Moreover, there are currently thousands of work options from home that we have access to and many of them are capable of multiplying our income, to the point of making us earn more money than almost any manager of a multinational would earn.
About 3 years ago, I began to become obsessed with the issue of earning money from home, and after discovering (and checking!) That indeed, there are many ways to generate income without having to get off the couch, I could create the life of my dreams.
HOW TO BE THE OWNER OF THE 24 HOURS OF YOUR DAYS
In addition to bringing you a list of more than 50 Jobs from Home that you can start today, I will also tell you how it was that after 12 months of starting my first web project and starting to work from my sofa, I could afford to give up my corporate work, to dedicate myself to living traveling, while multiplying my income and I am on my way to retire before I turn 40..
Achieving success with an online job is not a matter of luck, but of desire
It is very true that working from home gives you a lot of flexibility, in addition to the possibility of multiplying your income to a point that would be almost impossible if you work for someone else. But doing so, at the same time requires that you be an organized person, very responsible, and eager to overcome.
1. VIRTUAL ASSISTANT
If you are organized and can efficiently handle tasks such as answering emails, keeping agendas, planning meetings, etc., this may be your ideal option to work from home.
Being a virtual assistant gives you the opportunity to offer your services, without the need to be physically in an office.
Usually, companies with an online presence are the most open to hire virtual collaboration and give work options from home. The advantage is that every day more are added to this modality, since the vast majority of brands are choosing to create web pages and many of them attend their businesses online.
What do you need to achieve remote work as a virtual assistant
The only thing you need to start working as a virtual assistant, is to have a computer, access to a good internet connection, and apply to some of the many online administrative job offers that are available on sites like freelancer.com, or offer your services platform professionals like fiverr.com.
Find the full list of websites that offer work options from home, at the end of this article.
Something that I have noticed is that many of the professional virtual assistants, in addition to enlisting in the different platforms and job boards that exist, also create their own web pages with the detail of all the services they offer and their professional career (this It's like a virtual resume, which makes them look much more professional), and they add it to their application and profiles.
2. CONTENT REDACTOR (COPYWRITING)
All businesses need written content and, if this is your forte, you could earn a lot of money working from home.
To give you some approximate figures, if you are a content editor you could generate about $ 20- $ 300 + dollars for writing articles on platforms such as Matador Network and Lonely Planet.
You could also offer your services to different websites, or apply to some of the many job offers for this specific topic (both face-to-face and virtual) in newspapers, magazines, blogs, websites, marketing agencies, etc.
As in the previous case of virtual assistant, something that can help you win some job offers as a content editor, is to create a web page where you test your talent (with examples of texts written by you), as well as give Know something about your career and experience (links to those websites for which you have previously written).
Remember that the time when you sent your CV or samples of your work by email has passed, and now what is needed is to show you as a professional who is ready for this digital era.
3. AFFILIATE MARKETING
This is another of my favorite ways to earn extra money and one of the work from home that I consider more profitable and easy to implement, mainly because you do not need to have your own product or service to do so.
Basically, for affiliate marketing you must create a professional web page / blog, gain authority, readers and then find products / services consistent with the theme of your website and above all, that you really like.
Important: I advise you to recommend a product or service that you trust and with which you have truly had a good experience. The fact of winning and being able to maintain the confidence of your followers is one of the most important things for anyone to achieve professional growth.
How to apply to affiliate marketing programs
After creating your website, you must request to join the brand affiliate program (joining these programs is free in most cases), and when you are accepted you can promote your products / services with your readers and receive a commission For each sale.
Note: generally, the only requirement to be accepted in the affiliate programs is to have a website related to the theme of the product or service you want to promote, since you cannot claim to promote articles or sports equipment, with a cooking blog.
For example: a travel blog can join skyscanner.com, one that deals with beauty can apply to the affiliate program of some makeup brand and promote their favorite products, and so on, according to each of the themes.
You can join many of the most famous brands: you just have to create your professional website and then sign up for free at cj.com, Amazon Affiliates, shareasale.com, zanox.com and tradedoubler.com, for example.
4. BE YOUTUBER
This is, without a doubt, one of the most popular work from home among millennials and the Z generation.
The earnings on YouTube and your opportunity to earn money from home with this type of remote work will depend on the success you achieve with your channel. This is influenced by the theme or niche you are going to discuss, the keywords you promote and the virality you achieve with your content, as well as your authority on the subject, the advertisers who pay to appear in your videos, the countries where your subscribers reside , etc.
The minimum I see in my personal content is $ 1 for every thousand impressions. This means that if for example, you have 35 million views, you could generate about $ 35,000.00 dollars per month! It may become less, but also much more and everything depends on each specific case.
5. GRAPHIC DESIGN
If you are good at designing, another one of the jobs from home that you could do is to offer your services as a graphic designer, to one or several companies and / or independent professionals.
The first step would be to show your work on your website (your online catalog), and then promote it to different companies. Remember that, through the internet, you could apply to work with companies that are on the other side of the world, in some of the portals that we show you at the end of this article.
Other online jobs with good opportunities for a graphic designer, is to create and sell pre-designed logos or make tutorials on the use of design tools in video format, and then sell them on your website.
6. CREATION, DEVELOPMENT AND HANDLING OF WEB PAGES
As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, having a popular and automated professional blog is, in my opinion, one of the best ways to generate passive income (in simple words, earn money from home and while you sleep).
More and more people are interested in taking advantage of this gold mine; However, not everyone has the desire, time or capacity to learn to develop a professional website, so some choose to "outsource" this service. And that is where you could enter.
7. COMMUNITY MANAGER
This is another of the most popular work at home, among those Millennials interested in generating income online. Because working as a Community Manager, is a fun and very simple way to generate about $ 300 to $ 600 per month, to manage an active community in social networks.
You could also choose to drive several at once (advantages of being a freelancer) and there is no charge for handling one of 1,000 members, than for driving with 10K or 25K people.
8. SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER
If you are interested in earning $ 400 to $ 1,000 per month for managing social networks, this is an ideal remote job for you.
We should not confuse this position with that of the Community Manager, although both can be integrated into one person (the idea is that you get paid just for both functions).
As a Social Media Manager, you will be in charge of creating content (art) for the different social networks, sharing it with the techniques approved by the brand, creating paid advertising, and sometimes they even ask you to do the functions of a Community Manager, responding to the comments of the different platforms.
If you are an independent worker (and if time permits), you can manage the accounts of several brands at once, earning thousands of dollars while gossiping about the latest on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Tik Tok.
Note: When it comes to a small business, working as a Social Media Manager generally involves the creation of strategies (ideas) for different social networks, something that in other companies does someone else in the marketing direction. Then you may be asked to perform functions corresponding to a Community Manager.
Basically, the smaller the company, the more hats it would be to wear (the more things you would have to do). However, the positive is that you also learn.
9. OFFER YOUR COACHING SERVICES
Many of us who live on the Internet, use our knowledge to earn money from home by offering services on a subject that we are passionate about, and / or that we have a lot of experience.
It is thanks to the ease that websites and social networks have given us to make known, that “coaching” has been for several years now, one of the fastest growing professions in the world and also one of the jobs since Most popular home of this listing.

10. WORK ON THE INTERNET AS A TRANSCRIPTOR
If you have a good ear and writing on your computer is your forte, you can dedicate yourself to earning extra money in your spare time by making audio transcriptions to text, as independent.

ONCE YOU FIND YOUR NICHE, FOCUS!
As you may have noticed, I am one of those who think that when starting a web project, it is very healthy to explore and try different approaches. But in order to excel in the digital world we will have to differentiate ourselves from our competition.
A proven way to achieve this goal is to have a niche and give it an innovative approach (the one you find after trying different themes and points of view), analyzing the reaction of your audience..
TOO MANY DOING THE SAME
TOO MANY DOING THE SAME
Many of us have decided to start with some of the most popular topics on the Internet: travel, technology, beauty, coaching, finance, etc., and that's fine.
The problem with these super niches is that although they are very profitable and popular, they also have huge competition, so making yourself known can be complicated (especially if it is our first project and we have no previous experience).
One solution to make your way is to focus your blog in smaller niches with something a little more specific in mind and with the passing of the months define the approach you should give it.
MAKE WORK FROM HOME BE PROFITABLE
MAKE WORK FROM HOME BE PROFITABLE
Create your Financial Plan: If you are going to dedicate yourself 100% to work from home, you must take the money factor into consideration.
My recommendation has always been: if you have a traditional job, keep it until your venture takes off and you can cover your basic expenses, since the return on investment will not be immediate.
Design a Business Plan: You need to create a business plan (in case you are undertaking) and define your marketing strategy.
It is true that a good idea is useless if you do not make it known, but I do not recommend investing in advertising from the beginning and here I share my free Digital Marketing plan for Bloggers.
Prepare a Contingency Plan: You need a good internet service to work from home and have basic technical knowledge, since you will not have the computer equipment of your company.
To be prevented in the event that your computer stops working, always keep backups of all the relevant information and have on hand the contact of someone who can help you repair it..
