If the COVID-19 outbreak has brought one topic to the forefront, then it is the idea of a virtual workplace. Today, most of the world is working from home, which is triggering a shift in the processes and workflows that were previously considered untameable. With experts calling the current scenario the new normal, it is only practical to look at more ideas for working from home.

You may be already working a full-time job but there is no way to predict its future. This calls for a look at different avenues that you can explore for employment. Even if you hold a recession-safe job, it makes sense to increase the number of sources as the world inches into a state of uncertainty.

Here are some of the coolest work from home options in 2020:

Freelance WritingFreelance writing

This was and remains one of the most profitable and best online jobs to do from home. There’s no need for any extra investment; just a flair for writing and the ability to market yourself over the internet is enough. You can start by exploring sites like Freelancer.com for leads.

 

Data entry jobs

This is another common work from home job where you assist agencies and companies with data entry tasks. Most of these jobs involve Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets, so some degree of expertise in those tools is necessary.

Data Entry JobsGeneral app testing

Several companies rely on a virtual workforce to get their projects done. One such opportunity in India is to assist testing companies with your time. All you have to do is download the specified app or game (e.g.: Google Maps or Ludo King beta) and test all its elements (such as the UI) from a user perspective. Your job is to find out issues in the app and report them to the company in return for bounties.

Tableau expert (data visualization)

One of the critical means of data communication during the COVID-19 epidemic is a graphical representation. This art of collecting data and relaying the information through visualization is a hot skill right now. Sites like Upwork.com are seeing an uptick in jobs posted in this category.

Social media management

This has been a hot work from home job for some years now. Very relevant in the current scenario, you can easily look at earning a good amount every week by handling social media profiles of brands, personalities, and corporations. Start with Instagram as a platform. Jobs like these are available on Upwork.com and Fiverr.com.

online tutoringOnline tutoring

Do you know parents that are struggling to maintain their kids’ curriculum during the lockdown? Get in touch with them and show them how you can keep their children busy via Zoom or other videoconferencing tools. If you are a master of any primary or secondary school subject, it’s a great skill that is waiting to earn you some good money.

Baker or chef

Although panic buying is not a reality in India yet, you can take advantage of this scenario by putting your culinary skills into good use. Since restaurants are closed and grocery shops running with reduced staff and supplies, you can offer home-made food (bread is a hot demand food item right now) to your neighbors and relatives. Just make sure you put “safe cooking” on top of all your marketing communication.

Content editing and proofreading

This is an all-time cool work from home idea. Here all you need is a good understanding of grammar, writing styles, and punctuation to polishing content pieces that are ready for publishing. Know a digital marketing startup that is looking for talent? Hit them up right now.

Instructor

Slightly different than online tutoring, here you are supposed to help other people get certain tasks done. Do you know a neighbor who is struggling to do her finances during the COVID-19 crisis? You can help her out by teaching the alternative way to bank i.e. net banking or via debit cards. This may not sound common, but such jobs have certainly mushroomed up in modern India.

Product reviewing

With Amazon and Flipkart only servicing essentials right now, merchants are looking at other ways to keep their business running. A part of this involves scouting for genuine product reviews so that when things go back to normal, they can get a headstart at least in terms of online promotion, marketing, and reputation.

Online Product ReviewingBecome a self-learned stylist

Salons and barbershops are shut but hair growth hasn’t stopped. There is no way to find professional barbers and people are trying their own hand at grooming. With a little bit of learning and training with common tools, you can be a helping hand to those in need. Just make sure you provide the services while taking the necessary precautions like wearing a face mask and washing hands before and after the job.

Help in taxes

The fiscal year has been extended by three months in India but people are still looking for assistance in their finances. Now is the right time to put your mathematical hand into good use and work from home to help needy individuals sort their taxes out. Currently, everyone needs a three-month financial plan, right.

Become a conversationalist

With people staying indoors in India, loneliness has peaked. Sanity levels are dropping as people are experiencing mood swings and involuntarily changes in lifestyle. In these dire times, you can turn your extroversion into a helping hand for those who need some form of communication. Various agencies are providing such communication services for individuals who are trying to fight loneliness. You can get in touch with them.

There are many more freelance jobs available but the epidemic has either rendered them useless or have added limitations to them. However, that is not the case with these cool ideas for working from home. Start with one or two now!
