All you need is a computer, an Internet connection and a couple of hours a day. You may earn up to $50,000 per year if you dedicate to any of these remote jobs.

Speak English online

English is one of the most studied languages worldwide. Many people learn it at school or at institutes in order to get professional capacitation. But there are lots of people that look for other ways to practice the language, and they will pay gladly to do it online. You've got the most important quality: being a native English-speaker. This said, you can apply to any English tutorial site to get a job, or you can build a capacitation program and spread the word about it through your social media accounts.

Write transcriptions

You don't need any special skills to do this job. The faster your type, the sooner will you finish, but that's all. Transcription work is to take audios and turn them into texts, sometimes using a certain guide. As digital contents have high demand, many sites are looking for people to transcript videos in order to create new articles.

Work as a blogger

If you know how to make the most of the blogging tools, you may earn a lot of money with a blog. You can start your own or you can manage other people's or company's blogs. It takes some time to create blog content and gain abilities to engage your audience, but it's worth it once you've gained the experience and you can earn money with different blogs at the same time. 

Be a proofreader

All you need to know to do this work is good grammar and the feeling of correcting other people's mistakes. There are a lot of writers -amateurs and professionals- that create great stories and interesting articles, but they fail in the grammatical aspect of it. That's why they look for somebody to refine their texts before sending them to a publisher. 

Write freelance 

If you like to write, you can turn this skill into a job. You can start to write your own e-stories and upload them on some platforms, or you can offer your services as a freelance writer. Nowadays, not only newspapers need articles, but also websites of all kinds. Companies’ websites usually have a content section and they need someone to fill it with interesting information. Sales pages also need articles related to their products. As Google prioritizes in the searches those pages who renew their contents often, freelance writers have a high demand.
