If you are looking to start a new career from home there are a few different online careers jobs or businesses you can choose from. If you don’t have the money to start your own business there are a few options available that cost no money at all. Below is a list of 6 online careers you can start with virtually no money.
#1 Virtual Assistant.
Today, there are more and more companies operating without a physical office location. These business owners are often looking for virtual assistants to hire to do administrative tasks for them.
As a virtual assistant you would be responsible for answering calls, setting up appointments, screening and answering emails, and any other task your boss asks of you. The more services you can provide the more valuable you are as a virtual assistant.
If you choose to be a virtual assistant you should start small with one client. You can build on that as you get more comfortable with what a assistant that works virtually does.
After a while, you should have an idea of what specialty you want to focus on. This can have you doing a lot of work for one big client or doing small jobs for many.
#2 Freelance Content Writer.
Most businesses today are doing some sort of content marketing. This means that these business owners need someone to create informative and unique content for them.
If you are a skilled writer, and you have a computer with internet access, you can start writing for a living. There are several content mills online where you can get your start.
Some of these include iWriter, INeedArticles, UpWork, Crowd Content and many more. You join for free. Once you are approved you log online and start writing. It is that simple.
Starting this type of business as a freelance writer can be slow at first. However, if you are patient and you are willing to put in the time, you can make a full-time salary in as little as a year or maybe even faster.
Freelance writers are in demand for writing blog content, business to business content, copywriting, and many other types of writing. Most of these can be done virtually anywhere you can log online and for customers all over the world.

#3 Social Media Specialist.

Dog walking and pet sitting are in huge demand. People would rather hire someone local they trust than to take their pet to a kennel.
