Remote work is less and less a dream and more a reality. The market turns its eyes to digital as the most technological companies gain ground in the business world. Telework seems to have come to stay as an increasingly noticeable trend and even more workers venture into the world of freelancing.
For the self-employed, telecommuting is a reality with longevity. Today, professionals operating from any region of the globe call themselves digital nomads.
Achieving this enviable and sometimes quite lucrative position entails assembling a rich and consistent client base. Of course, you also need to find a professional area that supports remote working. We highlight, therefore, some of the ways that allow you to obtain income while traveling.
1. Social Media Management Marketing
Working and traveling is compatible with countless careers, and almost at the top of this list are the most popular jobs in the field of Communication, such as a Digital Marketing professional or social media manager
The tasks of these community managers, content marketing professionals (copywriters), digital campaign management, SEO consultancy, or customer service supervision can all be done remotely, for clients in numerous geographic locations, and with the entire process becoming increasingly self-sufficient at a distance.
2. Text editing and translations
The immensity of legal and academic documents, among many others, ensures that text editing and translation are also competitive areas when it comes to remote work.
From editing and proofreading texts, whether university works, books, or official or legal documents, the linguistic content assumes a prominent position in the panorama of work carried out from home or from any destination all over the world.
3. Graphic design, Web design, and Programming
It is in digital that, as expected, we find the best remote work opportunities. As more and more companies are transitioning to digital, there is an increasing need for businesses to be present and well-represented in the online world.
This implies a presence with flashy websites and memorable logos. Graphic designers have always had a strong presence in a more relaxed and often remote desktop. Today, she is one of the professionals most suited to digital nomadism.
Those who talk about design also talk about the programming of the websites themselves. Despite the number of platforms capable of generating a website, it is still relatively common for many companies to look for a website made and programmed from scratch.
4. Online Law Services
Remote work is compatible with some activities typically thought of as dependent on physical proximity. An example of this is legal services and legal support.
In fact, it is possible to travel and simultaneously carry out remote work in the field of law. From online consultations to document processing, it is possible to find lawyers online capable of responding to needs in different areas such as tax, family, employment, and administrative law, among many other specialties.
5. Personal Coaching and Consulting
In a world that sees an exponential increase in remote work and with the countless possibilities to create an independent career, it is sometimes important to have a little boost with the help of someone with more experience.
This is where online personal coaching services come in, which are able to guide their clients towards starting to maximize a career in multiple areas.
The emerging profession of coaches, to a large extent, responds to the need for personal improvement and the growing balance between personal and professional life.
6. Psychology and Psychotherapy Online
Several health professionals already provide convenient online consultations. While certain specialties depend on physically examining the patient, psychology and psychotherapy, and even psychiatry, have all the potential to integrate the world of remote work.
The therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist has the facility to consult the patient from any location. For specialties that offer recipes, the new electronic message service facilitates this entire process.
7. Personal Trainer And an Online Gym
Personal trainers looking to offer services that fit the needs of their subscribers, often offering the possibility of online training in their studios or gyms or even outdoors.
Distance PT services and online gym platforms multiply. In this model, trainers can prepare their lessons anywhere and record or broadcast them live to their community.
8. Private Online Teacher
Another growing trend is related to online classes and tutorials. Increasingly, education professionals from around the world come into contact with students in sometimes geographically highly displaced areas.
These online courses have different regimes and incentives, multiple audiences, and areas of activity, but they are usually guided by shortening distances that, before the internet, were unavoidable.
9. Blogger/Travel Writer
This is often the most obvious and long-lasting occupation when it comes to distance work. A travel blogger writes about the worlds he discovers, sometimes also works as a freelance photographer, and sells his texts and images to travel magazines or websites specializing in specific areas (nature, animals, sports, etc.) or of a general nature.
The occupation can also acquire a more structured character, with several travel writers publishing books about their journeys, contributing to guides from numerous countries or regions, best hotels/villas to stay during vacation, places to vising or even moving to television programs on these themes.
10. Virtual Assistant for Companies and Individuals
So many other occupations could be part of this survey, but we close the list with a new profession that is able to perfectly encapsulate the emerging status of teleworking.
Virtual assistance is a new phenomenon based on the provision of services to companies and private individuals on a freelance basis and, usually, at a distance. Virtual assistants can provide administrative, accounting, communication, or other services.
All day-to-day tasks can be simplified with the help of virtual assistants. This occupation, almost entirely remote, becomes increasingly attractive in the digital context of the 21st century.
