collection of cool stuff to buy online.
Today almost everyone would like to be an online entrepreneur, but not everyone knows how to succeed by doing this. It’s a fact that Internet itself offers lots of possibilities today, but it’s not always easy to decide and to start when you face the market offer.
The first step in this process is to decide what your specialty is, what you’re good at in order to start your online carrier.
For example, you can’t build mobile apps if you don’t know how programming works and how to develop games, social applications or something like that. It’s necessary to take into account your professional background and your former skills.
Sometimes you should follow your instincts and by combining those two you can make a perfect combination. Here’s a list that will help you make a choice:
Try Language Tutoring.
If you’re good at languages and if you have some kind of former education with languages, you should try this one. To apply to an online tutoring school, sometimes you don’t need a certificate to prove your former knowledge.
On the other side, some schools will ask you if you have a diploma or some recognized certificate. In this case, you will have to deliver it. There are many online language schools on the web and they offer different price for your tutoring.
Prices range from $1.4 to even $40-50, depending on the school and language you’re teaching.
For this one, you need to have a stable internet connection, in most cases a Skype account, a big smile and to be a good educationalist.
Be an eBook Author.
This type of work is often available on websites such as Freelancer and Upwork.
For making a good carrier out of this, you need to have certain skills. First of all, you need to be familiar with the genres. Demand is often based on some crime or love genre. For the last couple of years, books about healthy and organic food are more present.
In order to become a ghost writer, you need to commit yourself if you want to write tens of thousands of pages when applying.
Conclusion is – it’s worth it! Prices are high and the themes are often popular and easy to target. You need to be good at writing and full of imagination.
Sell on eBay.
The online market is very interesting, especially on eBay. If there’s something you think nobody would buy, you’re wrong. On this site you can sell anything!
From the weirdest stuff that are hard to imagine, to clothes and accessorize. Many people pay their bills by selling used military equipment from World War I and World War II, like bandages, shoes, tents, etc..
There are many collectors who would give lots of money to own this stuff. You may wonder how to get to these things? All you need to do is to find a military waste or second hand market place. You’ll be surprised.
In order to sell it on eBay, you need to open a PayPal account and be ready for the upcoming dollars. Be patient and persistent.
Become a Virtual Assistant.
If you’re good at organizing stuff, can think logically and have the possibility to be available all the time, this could be the job for you.
Offers like these can also be found on mentioned sites: Freelancer and Upwork.
You’ll be often asked to organize someone’s emails, book a flight or a hotel room, talk and negotiate with clients. If you’re good at this, and can multitask, this is what you’re looking for.
When I wanted to become a virtual assistant, I got the offer to just talk to a client about everyday things, and help him organize his daily schedule. Some people just need someone to talk to.
Interesting and Weird Online Jobs
You Can Become a Virtual Jury.
This one is really interesting and intriguing, and at the same time a bit strange.
When studying, there’s too much theory and little or no practice. It’s not a win-win situation when reality hits you. That’s why the guys from eJury wanted to create a virtual court with you playing your role as a virtual jury member.
These artificial situations will help the attorney to learn through practical examples. You will be given the chance to read cases, analyze them, express opinion and participate in discussions with an attorney.
For that, it’s useful to be good at analytics and logical thinking.
Become a Local Friend.
On websites like Couch Surfing you can find a person to guide you in the city you would like to visit or to offer you a place to stay while you’re in town.
This site can also give you a great opportunity to meet some new people and have a local person to show you around.
Another example is Rent a Friend, which lets you become a local friend and keep someone company for various activities.
For this job you need to be communicative, friendly and ready to meet new people.
