Some jobs are more in-demand currently than others.
Looking at the post-COVID trends from 2020, here are the top 7 jobs, mostly online or remote, that are going to make you the most money in 2023.
Estimated per-hour ranges are given, assuming that you're going to be a beginner.
Virtual Assistant or Consultant
With an ever-increasing number of businesses popping up throughout industries, we are seeing an influx of first-time CEOs and founders. All of them need an assistant to help them with their daily tasks and schedule (assistant work) or someone to handle their finances, life, or strategy (consultant).
$15-30 per hour.
Social Media Marketer
Similar to the last point, many online businesses are also looking for a good social media presence. Many feel that social media is an easy task (which it is), but few foresee how redundant and tedious it can get to analyze competitors, find new ideas, do research and content preparation, and design work.
Social media managers or marketers can offer a combined service offering research, content, design, and publishing support, all using free tools (such as Google for research and writing, Canva for design, and Buffer for post-scheduling).
$10-20 per hour.
Websites are always in demand. Specialize in one discipline such as WordPress or Shopify before expanding to other CMS platforms. A little bit of coding knowledge (HTML and CSS) can separate your work from others.
$30-60 per hour.
SEO experts improve a website's presence on Google, allowing it to outrank competing websites for specific keywords. This is an ongoing process for all websites and therefore, SEO is an evergreen field. Activities such as finding guest posting sites, improving website SEO, and handling keyword research are fairly straightforward.
$8-20 per hour.
Translator or Transcriber
Translators and transcribers are both in fairly moderate demand, and it's bound to grow with the world always becoming more localized. Don't limit your prospects by narrowing down on websites. Also look for apps, magazines, and other projects that need these services.
$10-20 per hour.
Becoming a developer is a time-consuming task. The most in-demand job title in tech and possibly all of the world is that of a developer. Full-stack developers, blockchain developers, web application developers, etc. are always in huge demand. Find a route and gather some formal training before approaching companies.
$20-35 per hour (web developers such as React) to $25-45 (software developers such as Python).
