Online Jobs That Pay | 13 Best Work From Home Jobs to Try in 2020

Online Freelancing Jobs of 2020

1. Take Freelance Websites, IT & Software Jobs

This is one of the most popular and the most sought skill set on the internet. Of course after freelance online writing.

In Freelancer.com alone, over 24,000 Website, IT & Software projects are reported to have been logged in 2019.

My projection is, in 2020 there will be a 10% or even 20% increase in projects needing these skill sets.

3. Take Freelance Writing & Content Jobs

Freelance writing jobs are by far the easiest to secure online jobs.

They don’t need any experience and they certainly don’t need any investment prior to getting hired.

If anything, you just need to have excellent communication skills and boom! You are hired.

Not to get mixed up though, not all writing jobs have the same format. And certainly not all of them sound good with the same voice.

Below are examples of online writing jobs to expect in your freelance writing career of 2020.

Depending on the mill site you choose to work with, you can withdraw your earnings to either Mpesa, Skrill, Paypal, Visa and/or WebMoney
Find what suits you and do it.

4. Freelance Design, Media & Architecture Jobs

In 2019 more freelance design, media and architecture jobs were posted and completed on Freelancer.com than writing jobs.

What does that tell you?

Design, freelance and media jobs are more in demand than most work from home jobs.

In fact, they were the second most popular gigs in 2019.

As such, if you are a designer, an architecture or a media personality, you can be assured of getting more such gigs in 2020.

Below are examples of media, architecture and design jobs that you can do from home.

5. Freelance Data Entry & Admin Jobs 

While data entry and admin jobs are the easiest online freelancing jobs that you will ever find online, they are not easy to come by. And if by chance you get any, they don’t pay well and most of them end up to be scam.

Just in case this is the only gig you can do in this list, work – but only if your employer agrees to an upfront payment known as milestone in Freelancer.com. Otherwise, save your time and soul from frustrating.

Below are data entry hustle samples that you can do online in freelancer.com

6. Freelance Engineering & Science Jobs 

Unlike data entry and freelance online writing jobs which anyone can do regardless of if they hold a certification for any skill; freelance engineering and science job can only be done by qualified personnel.

You can lie to the content mill systems about being qualified for the job. But tell me my friend, what happens if you are awarded a project in medicine, biotechnology or medical research and the only certification that you have is birth certificate?

Haha… Tell me how that folds out.

9. Freelance Sales And Marketing Jobs   

Interestingly, 99% of startups in this decade share the same objective – profit maximization. But that’s the easy part.

The difficult part is meeting this objective. And that’s where you – an influencer, a social media strategist, Vlogger, content marketer/marketing strategist… comes in.

Freelancing has grown and in 2020 you can as much work from home on Freight, shipping and transportation projects as you can work on data entry.

These jobs include scheduling flower delivery, courier, packaging and shipping, parcel delivery, pickup, delivery and logistics. All done from home.

There is no way you can talk about a business and not mention accounting, human resource and the legal side of business.

Interestingly, millions of people have studied in these fields and acquired degrees, diplomas and/or even MBA’s.

Problem is, there aren’t so many jobs to accommodate everyone.

Yes, you can now work as an accountant, a HR specialist or  legal expert without having to leave your home.
