Looking to ditch your 9 to 5?

These days, it’s easier than ever before to set up your own business.

Technology has made it possible to dive into the world of self-employment (working from the comfort of your own home).

Freelancing is a particularly popular side hustle (or career) option.

Let’s discuss 5 freelancing jobs you can easily do from home:

Freelance Accountant

If you’re looking for a lucrative freelancing career, accounting is a great choice.

Given the number of self-employed is continuously increasing, the demand for accountants is high.

You can provide a competitive freelance accounting service to all kinds of businesses and start-ups. Note: you’ll have to check with each business as this might be included under the “virtual assistant” title for them, so make sure if you’re checking individual sites, you look up the description for the VA too. 

It’s a fairly easy freelancing career to start up if you have the right qualifications.

You won’t need much in the way of capital and you’ll find it easy to generate new clients.

Pros:

  • Well paid
  • Don’t require much capital to get started
  • Stable clients 

Cons

  • Possible inconsistent income
  • Requires specific skills and/or qualifications

Freelance writer

If you have a way with words, freelance writing is another opportunity available.

You can write content for:

  • Businesses
  • Blogs
  • Reviews
  • Product Descriptions

Whatever you are really good at writing, you can all but guarantee that there’s a type of writing you can get into to fit your preferences.

Whatever topics you’re interested in, you can create content about that and find your market. There are plenty of websites looking for content in your niche. 

Pros:

  • Plenty of opportunities
  • No real qualifications required (other than knowledge of your niche topics) 
  • Can easily work remotely

Cons

  • Possible inconsistent income
  • Not always the highest paid opportunity

Freelance Marketer

Another great freelancing opportunity is to become a marketer.

Digital marketing is HUGE right now and it’s forever changing. Quite a number of businesses/brands simply don’t have the time or the know-how to market themselves online.

You’ll also find a lot of free courses on digital marketing that will give you the knowledge required to start offering freelance marketing services.

You have the option of specializing in particular types of marketing too, like email marketing or social media marketing.

Pros:

  • An in-demand industry 
  • Varied workload 
  • Minimal qualifications required 

Cons:

  • Possible inconsistent income
  • Not very to find jobs/opportunities

Freelance VA (Virtual Assistant)

Virtual assistants are always in demand.

Hiring freelance VAs helps small businesses save both time and money. You’ll pretty much be doing what you would in a standard assistant or secretary role.

In a nutshell: you providing administrative support to companies.

This can include:

  • Data entry
  • Phone and email communication for the business
  • Scheduling appointments 
  • Creating social media content
  • Scheduling social media content 

Pros:

  • High-demand
  • Easily work from home
  • Minimal qualifications required

Cons:

  • Pay isn’t always great
  • Pay can be inconsistent 

Freelance web designer

Another option is to become a freelance web designer.

Out of all of the opportunities featured on this list, a web designer role does require a little more expertise. 

The good news? There are a lot of courses online you can take to teach yourself web design.

This is particularly lucrative role, giving you the opportunity to earn a really great income. Businesses are constantly looking to have websites designed or updated, so you’ll never run out of clients.

Pros:

  • Very lucrative career
  • In-demand
  • Remote working
  • Possible retainer (recurring) income

Cons:

  • Qualifications are required
  • Possibly inconsistent income

So, there you have it – 5 of the top freelancing careers you can do from home.

You might have noticed that all of them have the same con: inconsistent income. The biggest pitfall to freelancing is your income can vary from month to month. 

What can you do to ensure a bit more stability?

Consider what you’re interested in.

No matter what your current skillset is, there is a freelance opportunity for you.
