Depending on your skills, training, interests and talents, you may find success in one of the following fast-growing freelance career choices:
Typical duties: Because just about all businesses have a need for a visually stunning website these days, web designers are in high demand. Duties include everything from creating brand new websites from scratch to designing a new logo for a company’s existing website.
Typical duties: Cold calling is a task feared by many, but if it’s something you’re good at and willing to do, you can potentially make a successful freelance career out of it. Note that a lot of freelance sales jobs tend to pay on a commission basis only, but if you’re a talented salesperson, your earning potential could be unlimited.
Typical duties: If you’re fluent in more than one language, you can easily make some extra cash by offering your services as a freelance translator. Although fluency in any second language can lead to a successful career in this field, some of the more in-demand languages include German and French. Certification from the American Translators Association can also increase your earning potential.
Typical duties: More accountants are giving up full-time office positions and are finding just as much (if not more) success as freelancers. Accountants perform a variety of tasks, including bookkeeping, managing bank statements, preparing financial reports, and more.
Selling and auctioning items online
Typical duties: A lot of people have stuff they want to sell online, but simply don’t have the time, patience, or experience to do so. Using popular auction sites like eBay or shopping portals like Amazon, you’d list products for sale for your clients. You could also make money by regularly selling some of your own stuff online, or scouring garage sales and thrift stores for bargains, and then listing them for a profit on the Internet.
