The 10 Best Work from Home Jobs in 2019

Sometimes, it can feel like the cost of living is higher than ever. With food, energy and rent payments on the rise, most of us could use a little extra cash. The question is, how? What’s the best way to earn a secondary income and, most importantly, which sources of revenue can definitely be trusted? After all, there are plenty of people out there promising riches. It takes time and patience to determine which of these promises are genuine. Can you really make cash by selling your old clothes? Is it okay to join a multi-level marketing scheme? If you put the work into arts and crafts, do you have a good chance of selling them? There are lots of considerations but, the good news is, there are also plenty of secure, legitimate ways to make money from home. Let’s take a look at some of the best work from home jobs available in 2019. Hopefully, you’ll find one that works for you.

1. Proofreading

Proofreading is one of the most popular work from home jobs for two important reasons. Firstly, the vast majority of businesses write copy which needs to be impeccable for clients, customers and affiliates. Almost all have the need but surprisingly few have a dedicated proofreading team. Secondly, all that’s required to be a good proofreader is a computer and a keen eye for detail. If you’re a grammar and punctuation nerd, this one is for you.

2. Virtual Assistant

Virtual assistants can earn anything from $25-40 per hour and possibly more once they’ve built up enough experience. They are responsible for many of the same tasks as in house assistants, including bookkeeping, social media management, email management, schedule keeping and answering phones (yes, you can do this part from home too). You may want to consider this avenue if you have previous administrative experience.

3. Pinterest Assistant

Although this sounds like a fanciful job, it really does exist. It’s growing in popularity all the time, so start making cash from your talent for digital displays. A virtual assistant on Pinterest is, essentially, a person hired to promote somebody else’s brand or business. They create pins, write product descriptions, schedule posts and get Pinterest communities talking about their employer’s company.

4. Transcription

Transcription is a fantastic way to make money from home but it’s not right for everybody. In fact, transcription jobs – particularly freelance assignments – can carry impressive fees because those who can do it are rarer than you think. It can take a long time to convert audio material into written documents. So, you must have patience, a meticulous ear and the ability (and willingness) to sit for long hours.

5. Freelance Copywriter

Freelance copywriting is at the top of the list, alongside proofreading, when it comes to easy ways to make money from home. If you have high level writing skills, all you need to do is choose a good platform on which to offer your services. Even better yet, sign up to one of the many assignment matching websites and let somebody else do all the hard work. These platforms specialize in bringing copywriters and clients together.

6. Legal Scoping

You may not have heard the term scoping before, at least not in the context of freelance employment. However, it is a legitimate service and, what’s more, it’s a highly respected one. Talented scopists can earn a healthy 35000-45000 per year if they have the right qualifications. The job involves working with a court reporter to produce neat, professional copies of rough documents written during trials. While it does require some independent training, the potential rewards make any startup costs worthwhile.

7. Blog Writing

The truth is, it can take a long time to make a living out of blogging. And it doesn’t happen for everybody. However, most bloggers can earn extra pocket money by doing what they love – writing about their hobbies, interests and thoughts on different topics. It may not be a full time income but, if you monetize your content using affiliate marketing ads you can expect a steady stream of royalties which builds up over time.

8. Flipping Cheap Products

The best example of ‘professional’ flipping, in the context of at home jobs, is something like upcycling. For instance, you might purchase a wardrobe from a second hand store at a knockdown price because it’s in pretty poor condition. With enough time, skill and dedication, you could lovingly restore it and sell it on again for twice its original cost, perhaps more. Depending on your level of skill and the type of products you choose to upcycle, you could make anywhere between $50-200 per item.

9. Amazon Seller

Another route for crafters and creators, particularly if they want to avoid eBay, is the FBA scheme at Amazon. FBA stands for ‘fulfilment by Amazon.’ In short, registered sellers advertise their products just like bigger manufacturers do – with images, product descriptions and ratings from customers. The big perk here, and the reason FBA is superior to platforms like eBay and Etsy, is the fact Amazon pays all storage and shipping costs. You just need to drop items off at your local Amazon fulfilment centre.

10. Translating

Finally, it’s worth considering a job as a stay at home translator if you’ve got high level language skills. Or alternatively, try this kind of work if you’re a natural speaker of a sought after language – imagine making money doing something so effortless! Desirable languages include French, Spanish, Chinese, Urdu and Arabic. If you speak any of these languages proficiently, you could make a lot of money translating documents from and into English.
