Over the years, the internet and other advancements in technology have afforded us the easiest way to look for jobs that don’t require us to leave the comforts of our homes.

It wasn’t always like this. To earn a living, most people used to leave their houses for a 9-to-5 job. Nowadays, the same setup is just impossible for some people. Take for example the millennials. As they turned into parents, they realize that they want to be more hands-on when it comes to raising their children. But they also know they need to earn money to support their family financially. This is why many of them choose to work at home. This is just among the many reasons why people turn to online marketing businesses.

If you’re aspiring to start earning money in the comforts of your home, you’d be happy to know that there’s so many business opportunities that are just a click away. And here are just some of them:

1. Social Media Specialist

If you’re a millennial, you’re absolutely not new to this area of online business. According to websites like journalreview.org digital landscape is getting bigger which means the market is growing for social media specialist.

● Social media is now used as an outlet where business owners can advertise their products and services. 
● It gives entrepreneurs an easier way to target their customers based on social media behavior.
● Social media offers a broader reach without spending so much on advertising cost.

Now, these business owners need help from social media experts who can deliver excellent results at a reasonable price. If you’re fond of spending time on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms, then why not integrate your love for it with money-making skills?

2. Web Designer

Aside from their product and services, another thing business owners should ensure is the quality of their website. Web designers are in demand now more than ever. Business owners have so little time to focus on their website which is why hiring a web designer makes a lot more sense. Web designers can offer the following services:

● Custom website design
● Create an appealing user interface using your branding
● Increase website functionality
● Update obsolete technology you are using

If you are familiar with web designing or have built your own website in the past you can definitely earn a lot from offering this kind of online business opportunity. 

4. SEO Expert

One of the important things you learn in online marketing is how SEO affects the early stages of enticing potential customers. Given how Google now can detect lousy content, this is a delicate matter only experts should dwell in. Small or local businesses have no idea of the impact of SEO on their business. Here’s a few ways you can show them your skills in SEO:

● Show them their website analytics.
● Show a keyword strategy and how you plan to increase traffic.
● Provide details on why their website is performing poorly on search results.

Even if you’re not an expert yet, there’s a lot of guides you can read to become an SEO master.

6. Ghostwriting/Copywriting

If blogging is not for you but you still want to pursue a career in writing, there’s a lot of freelance jobs you can find online. Ghostwriting and copywriting have become more in demand as the number of businesses also increase. As a ghostwriter you can offer:

● Increased productivity for the business owner as they no longer need to do this on their own or delegate it to someone who has no idea what they’re doing.
● Better content for the website. As a ghostwriter, you probably have the expertise and know-how of what kind of material works well.
● Faster turnarounds due to experience. A fast content output could also have a direct impact in SEO.

Many business owners need high-quality content for their websites, but they just don’t have the time to do it themselves. If operating behind the stage is your thing, this job is perfect for you.

Conclusion

Online marketing is full of opportunities, and that includes even the beginners. If done with the right attitude, it can be a rewarding way to develop skills and earn like a professional.
