Are you a contractor of services looking for at home employment? Or, are you a business owner looking to hire services? Either way some of the best paying at home jobs are available on Odesk and other similar online freelance websites. If you haven’t used Odesk or Fiverr you owe it to yourself to take a look at them. They offer an online marketplace of freelance skills, services and talents.
You would think an online freelance employment site would primarily offer digital-based skills and services, but while most of the work are digital services, there are also a substantial number of traditional non-digital services as well. For example, if you are looking for writers and editors there are plenty of them available. If you are looking for graphic design, task management, document storage and arrangement, or phone callers they are all available at Odesk.
So here are ten jobs you can make very good money on Odesk, by working from home: website design, writer, code developer, SEO, mobile app creation, data entry and organization, task management, software development, graphic design and phone caller. If you look at the people offer their services on Odesk you will find there is a wide diversity of skill sets and price points in each of these service niches. That is where your opportunity really lies.
A World of Markets
The best paying jobs and employment opportunities require an entrepreneurial bent. But, in the newly evolving work force entrepreneurial skills are far more frequently required than they were even as recently as a decade ago. With a little creativity and determination anyone can use the difference in global marketplace wage rates to build a very profitable career. Here’s how it works. You become a manager of other people’s skills.
If you use Odesk and Fiverr to find talented individuals that are trustworthy and easy to communicate with and who live in a marketplace that has far lower wage levels, you have a business. So your job is to Use Odesk as a portal for hiring people in other countries, which are often India, Pakistan, or the Philippines (because the people are well educated and speak English). You then turn around and broker your services to others at a hirer rate and manage your team to perform the work. You get to profit from the wage differences in global labor markets. If it sounds daunting, that’s because I’m giving you the big picture. It all happens as a series of small steps. You hire one person and use them to help you with a project that you get either online or in your local geography. You can hire people to help you do volunteer work at local organizations if you want to get more comfortable with how it works.
This isn’t a how to article, the point I’m making is that there is a very significant difference in wage levels in separate labor markets. Some of the best jobs available today are finding ways of managing those wage differences in an honorable way. That means you have to bring good management skills to the table or develop them as you grow your team. You can actually hire a person on Odesk to teach you management skills and to help you manage the problems that arise. I’m not suggesting a four hour work week approach to these opportunities; what I know, is that it’s very easy to find a collection of talented dependable workers online who very much appreciate a regular flow of work at a price that is generous in their market. In the long run, wage levels around the globe may move closer together, but that’s not the way it is today and it’s not likely to change anytime soon. You can have a top paying job by managing a team and offering employment opportunities. Just go try it!
