Gone are the days when we had a set of jobs to choose from.

Mainstream jobs from STEM‌ and part-time jobs usually involved working

in department stores as a cashier or salesperson.

With the coming of the Internet, there has been a flow of new jobs. So

many jobs that you might not know a good percentage of them.

And the first step to start making money online is to know the

emerging jobs on the Internet so that you can choose the best one for yourself.

So here is a list of 40 real online jobs that can help you make online


#1. Blogging

40 Real Online Jobs that Can Help you Make Quick Money Online 4

Gone are the days when blogging was limited to expressing your views

and connect with people over the Internet. You can get more with your blogging.

You can earn handsomely with it.

Many bloggers have made a fortune with it. All big-wig websites like

Engadget, Mashable, TechCrunch, HuffingtonPost started as a simple blog, and

now they are either a part of an online publication empire or the empire


While there is a growing concern that the blogging industry is

saturated with millions of blogs and websites competing for attention, people

will always value experience, and blogging can act as a great medium to dispel


If you can provide something unique and out of the box, people will

flock to your blog. And once you build a community around your blog, you can

sell products through affiliate marketing, sponsored posts, banner ads and so


#2. Proofreading

A lot of people want to get their content out on big websites, maybe for getting exposure to their services or getting backlinks from high authority websites.

The takeaway point here is that these big websites usually have a good flow of content with them, both through in-house writers as well as guest posters.

But all the content has to be up-to-mark to a certain standard, which

might not be known to the writers. Every writer has his flair and style, but

websites have to make sure that some standardization is there. That can be in

terms of grammar, formatting style, etc.

Proofreading is one of the hot emerging jobs out there with the boom

of flow of content all over the web right now.

#3. Content Writing

What if you like to write, but don’t want to start your blog?

Content writing can give you room for your preferences. If you want to write and cover different niches and different styles, there is a big market for you to tap.

You can find many ads in ad marketplaces and freelance websites.

Starting from big companies to bloggers, everyone requires good content writers

as it will be a part of their brand-building process.

Content writing is on such a roller-coaster ride that you can find

websites with courses on how to write and churn out good content!

#4. Bookkeeping

Ten years back, book-keeping was something limited to offline

business. It usually involves dealing with numbers through receipts and bills,

counting inventory products, classifying the expenses, and so on.

But with the coming of the Internet, more and more people are trying to delegate the work to freelancers. From the company side, they don’t have to get an employee for full-time purposes saving them money.

And from the freelancer side, you are not restricted to a single company, so you can have multiple clients and increase your income.

You can either associate yourself with a company or start your own (in

case you have the experience and have a set of clients to work with). Associating

with a company works well for a newbie who might not have contacts and clients

to work with, as the company itself provides you with work daily.

Although the drawback is that the company will act as a middle-man and

take a cut of your earnings, but once you gain experience you can start your

own company.

#5. Online Tutoring

40 Real Online Jobs that Can Help you Make Quick Money Online 5

Expertise and proficiency always sell. Especially over the internet.

Do you have a love for that certain subject that no one else does? So

much so that you would love to share your knowledge with others and make money

out of it?

Online tutoring is just the right job for you then.

If you like teaching but don’t want to take the extra effort of

starting your offline classes, there is always another option open for you.

Parents usually look for tutors for their kids. And it doesn’t matter

where the tutor is from as long as the tutor is good at it. This way, you can

get students not only from your own country but from abroad as well, further

helping you earn a good amount of money.

Plus, it is not only limited to teaching subjects. Some websites also

take in tutors for helping students completing their assignments as well. So if

you think you are good at a subject and you can teach and solve assignments,

this can be a good job path for you.

There are websites likeTutor andTeacherOn that can get you


#6. Chat Agent

40 Real Online Jobs that Can Help you Make Quick Money Online 6

You must wonder what a chat agent does, right?

You can usually find chat agents on websites related to banking and

booking, where users often tend to get confused about where to go to get their

job done.

To make this easy, websites often employ chat agents. You must have seen this when logging on to certain websites a certain pop-up comes across the screen greeting you:‌ ‘How may I help you?’.

This is almost equivalent to call-center representatives. But instead

of talking over the telephone, you talk over text.

It is one of the easiest jobs out there with minimal knowledge required,

the only thing being that you have to abide by the website’s rules and

regulations and proficiency over a certain language (mostly English).

#7. Social Media Manager

The task of a social media manager is to look over the social media

profiles of companies. Companies to stay in touch with consumers often connect

through tweets and Facebook posts.

You must have seen twitter handles like McDonalds and Wendys trying to

post memes to connect more easily with their customers and also to lure in more


As a social media manager, you have to ensure that all the pages are

working fine, and the company’s presence is felt over the internet and

especially amongst the people on social media.

This also involves taking care of queries of users through social

media, replying to comments, spreading brand awareness through campaigns, and


It would be hard to try for the role of SMM in a big company directly,

but you can always start with a small to medium-ranged company and move your

way up. These companies usually look for people who can help increase their

social reach.

#8. Graphic Designers

40 Real Online Jobs that Can Help you Make Quick Money Online 7

The demand for graphic designers will never die down. As is rightly

said, a picture is worth a thousand words; companies usually try to sell their

content along with great-looking visuals.

If you have a thing for designing, multiple avenues are open for you. You can design logos for companies. You can design banners for YouTube channels.

Plus, companies usually look for people who can provide them with beautiful graphics to go on their landing pages of products, as well as for their company blogs.

Graphic designers are specially employed for social media projects, due to platforms like Instagram and Facebook, which runs primarily on images.

Social Media Managers often take the help of Graphic Designers for making meme-content, promotional content and pretty much everything that required the need for images.

#9. Video Editing

40 Real Online Jobs that Can Help you Make Quick Money Online 8

Just like the graphic designer, if you are good at video editing, the

scope is vast.

You can edit videos for YouTubers and other video sharing platforms.

Even on platforms on Instagram and Facebook, videos are always in fashion,

especially 3-5 minute videos.

With video editing and graphic designing, there are lots of content-delivering websites like BuzzFeed and a whole array of news websites that prefer to put out videos.

People usually prefer going through a video than reading content, and they are always in need of video editors to help them create videos.

Product-based companies also require video editors. And as you know, a

lot of products are sold over the internet; you can easily find gigs and jobs

over the online job marketplace.

#10. Virtual Assistant

Virtual Assistant is purely a 21st-century job. I don’t think people

who have lived a fair share of their lives in the previous century can even

comprehend that such a job exists.

But as with bookkeeping, getting a new employee can often incur along

with recurring costs to companies. To offset this, they usually choose to

prefer to go with virtual assistants.

You set the schedule; you do the emailing, you do all the assistant

task but in the comfort of your own house. Plus, you can have multiple clients

as well over the web to increase your income further.

#11. Language Translation

If you know an extra language along with your mother tongue, how about

using it for earning?

Language Translators are in demand due to more inter-connectivity among people of different types, speaking different languages. Clients dealing with one another without a common language to converse often end up in a stalemate situation.

To remedy this, they often employ language translators.

Conferences often go through language translators for better

communication between the two parties.

Also, companies usually hire them to translate content into a regional level language. Suppose Airbnb is targeting a certain region in India, they would want to appeal to the common people living there through their language.

They usually hire people who can translate their basic content (usually written in English) to the regional language.

#12. SEO‌ Consultation

40 Real Online Jobs that Can Help you Make Quick Money Online 9

Companies and their websites crave organic traffic through search

engines. Ranking higher up in search engines can bring you more traffic, which

in turn rakes in more money for your business.

SEO‌ Consultants help companies to achieve just that.

SEO‌ stands for Search Engine Optimization, as the name suggests the

responsibility involves devising strategies and techniques for the website and

its post to rank higher up. This can be done through a mix of on-page and

off-page strategies.

So unless you are quite thorough with how SE‌O works, it wouldn’t make

sense to foray into business. On the other hand, if you have the experience,

you can work with some of the bigger companies to help them with your


Especially with so many companies fighting over the attention space,

companies are shelling out a good amount of money to get placed higher.

#13. Ad Campaign Manager

So what does a manager of an ad campaign do?

They are responsible for both devising campaigns as well as make sure

that campaigns work well. They have to devise measurable objectives and metrics

to make sure that the money company is investing for an ad campaign is being

used productively.

Ad Campaigns usually run over social networking websites like Facebook and Twitter, as well as through sponsored Google results. The Manager has to make sure that the reach of the product/service is maximum.

One can also employ other additional techniques like sponsored posts, as long as it is getting the company the exposure.

As long as you know your way around with campaigning and have a good

experience with ad campaigns, you can work at leisure from your house.

#14. Scoping

Not many of you would be aware of scoping.

There are court reporters who cover various court proceedings: cases

and hearings, what a scopist’s task is to edit the transcripts from the


Court reporters usually type in the proceedings through a steno

machine. This is then processed through a CAT‌(computer-aided translation),

which gets converted to English.

The scopist will then look for missing spaces, misspelled words. It is

one of the most significant jobs as you have to make sure the words correspond

exactly to what was said in the courtroom.

As a scopist, you need to know how to use CAT‌ software, the proper

terminology, how to put and format a transcript.

It is a very demanding job and asks a lot of your time to learn all

the tidbits, but once you know the know-how of it, it can be very rewarding.

The best part is that you don’t need to be in court; you need to have

an internet connection to be in touch with the reporters.

#15. E-commerce Business

40 Real Online Jobs that Can Help you Make Quick Money Online 10

How about selling your products?

E-commerce has taken the world by storm. More and more people are

looking to buy things online, as

a) they are usually economically viable


b) more options are exquisite items are available.

If you can provide something new, you will always find a customer base

for your business, be it business-to-business or business-to-consumer. It is

targeting a small niche where competition is less and then expand your way out.

Take, for example, Amazon, which started with selling books over the

internet, as there was no internet service doing the same. And now they are an

e-commerce mammoth, selling from hair-pins to refrigerators!

#16. Voiceover Artists

40 Real Online Jobs that Can Help you Make Quick Money Online 11

If you know how to mimic and produce different sounds, how about

giving this a shot?

Voiceover artists are often employed in dubbing purposes. Whenever a

video needs to be made targeting the local audience, let’s say there’s a

trailer of a Hollywood movie which the company is thinking to target the local

audience of France.

To appeal to the French, Voiceover artists’ services are used to do a

dubbing. Video remains the same, but the audio gets morphed over the video.

This is a booming job as more and more content from foreign countries

are being exchanged with home countries, be it anime or french art-house


#17. Amazon FBA

What if you want to sell products but don’t want to take the hassle of

setting up a new internet business?

Amazon. You make use of Amazon’s logistic power network. You store your

products in Amazon’s fulfillment centers, and they will handle the delivery and

You will be charged for the storage and delivery part, but it will

also take advantage of their Amazon Prime free Two-Day Shipping and free

shipping on eligible orders.

#18. Technical Writers

content which is more complex to write compared to usual content writer.

They usually write instruction manuals, press releases, user manuals

and reference guides, almost everything under the domain of technical

documentation. This usually requires people whose educational background is in

technical fields such as Engineering.

Technical writers’ job is to break down complex information into easy to comprehend content, usually for consumers (as guides) or company’s employees to create new products.

at. Be it playing football or singing, and you know something more than the

rest of us. How about sharing your knowledge, tips, and tricks through a


It almost falls under the domain of online tutoring, except with online tutoring; it usually involves a 1-on-1 approach. With the paid course, there is a one-time investment of a long period to devise the course and getting the course out.

But once you get your course out, multiple students can learn on their own.

You don’t have to put effort into teaching each student from scratch,

as they will do that on their own.
