Since the global Covid 19 pandemic, more and more people have been looking for work-from-home (WFH) opportunities.
Work-from-home jobs used to entail a headset strapped to your face and a long list of people to call, or an even longer list waiting to speak to you.
Most people are not too keen on this type of career; it can get emotionally taxing, or it is just simply not your thing.
Luckily, there are lots of Non Phone Work from Home Jobs available to pursue.
So, let’s take a look at them…
Social Media Content Creator
Depending on the type of content you create, you can likely do most of it from home. You can create YouTube or TikTok videos, post on Instagram or Facebook, and build a following.
You can earn money on ad revenue, sponsored content, or fans supporting you through purchasing merchandise or via Patreon. Should your platforms gain a significant following, you may even get lucrative deals with brands that wish to be associated with your channel.
Upwork is a platform for freelancers to get once-off and even long-term work. Accountants, software developers, web developers, graphic designers, writers, editors, and many other professionals find freelance work on Upwork.
The beauty of Upwork is that it allows clients and freelancers to connect all over the world, with built-in structures to prevent disputes and non-payment. You will be able to do honest work for honest payment and be free to report any client that does not follow the rules of the platform or behaves unethically.
If you can speak, understand, read and write in two or more languages, you may be able to do translation work. You will be expected to transcribe audio, translate text, or even to live interpretation. Many content creators are unable to speak English and need translators to write captions or subtitles for their content.
Creating And Selling Art
Whatever art you can create can fetch you a pretty penny if sold online. You can advertise it by creating your own social media pages, listing them on Etsy or other online sales platforms. Or collaborating with content creators that already have large followings.
Art does not have to be painting and drawings. Many artists create trinkets, jewelry, and household items that can be used practically or purely decoratively. Lots of items are connected in line with existing fandoms. Potion bottles, wands, and beautiful brooms are created for Harry Potter themes. Others may create costumes and props for ‘cosplay.’
The options are limitless; you just need the skills and creativity to create a quality item.
You probably know at least ten people that are business owners. They all need logos, advertising campaigns, and regular content on their social media platforms. You can create a brand proposal for each and do graphic design for all of them. Word of mouth will often do all the advertising you need for you.
Unlike other non phone work from home jobs, you will still end up having a headset strapped on and talking throughout the day. But it’s a whole lot more interactive and fun than selling!
The demand for online schools is rising. You should continue to teach the subjects you are specialized in if you are already a qualified teacher. If you are not a qualified teacher but you hold a bachelor’s degree, and you are fluent in English, you can apply for a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate.
No interruptions allowed!
There is a huge demand for English online teachers in China, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, Dubai, etc. You will need stable internet and power connection for this. They do not take kindly to interrupted classes.
Novels, short stories, or articles, writing is a prime WFH opportunity. You can join a writing group, and enter competitions. After writing for some time and building a reputation, you may earn some money proofing/editing other writers’ content.
More magazines rely on freelance writers as it is more cost-effective to pay for work delivered rather than full-time employees. Some will be published in printed copies; others may be used online. Either way, the articles can be written from the comfort of your home.
Stock Images, Audio, and Videos
Many websites or applications make use of content that users can either have free access to or pay a subscription fee to be able to use.
You can sell your photographs, short video clips, or even soundbites to stock websites for money. Technically photographs and videos will not always be taken at home, but it is still done on your own time, without having to go to an office.
