Use Your Skills To Make Money With 15 Freelance Online Jobs

As more and more people start using online options for income, the opportunities to make money are growing. If you have a specific skill you may be able to gain a good side income from a variety of freelance online jobs. You may be surprised to know of the many available options that exist online for freelancing and growing your skill set.

Freelance online jobs

I have assembled a list of what I consider the top 15 places to go online to make money with freelancing. So what exactly is freelancing? Instead of working for an employer freelancers are self-employed and can be hired to perform a specific task, then move on to another. There is a rising demand for this type of work.

Many people can use help with online operations of there business. For example, you may have a website or blog and would like to make a logo for your business or maybe you need one of those nice video introductions of your business for all your videos, perhaps even just creating stunning graphics and images for your site. All can be accomplished by freelancers.

If you needed work done and you could get it done by spending a little to have that work done for you, freeing up your time to manage other functions of your business would you consider it?

Many of us that have online businesses occasionally reach out to have a project completed by someone who is much more proficient at a specific skill, Like graphics design or web design and countless more.

The order below is a randomly ordered list of places you can work as a freelancer and gain exposure and experience in your craft.

Let’s Get Started


Fiverr– One of my favorite places to have a specific job done is Fiverr, there are so many members that can help out, then again it may be a bit competitive for someone doing this as a living but you certainly can get some jobs doing it



I reached out a few times to the Fiverr community and had a few things done for this website. I had a radio commercial made from a radio broadcaster who made me a 1-minute spot on his online broadcast to a national audience. That was fantastic and it worked well and only cost me $14.

Another time I had a video intro created for my videos (see below) for $19- had the file within 2 days. I also hired a writer for an article, for $10 I received a well-written article which is listed in my guest posting tab on this website

Below is the intro I use for many of my videos. I will eventually get another one but it is one I got from a freelancer on Fiverr


Up work– Another freelance site that is a bit more upscale than Fiverr-  As Stated by the company- It is “The premier freelancing website for top companies to hire and work with the world’s most talented independent professionals”.

You do not need prior experience to become a freelancer for them. Just like many of these sites, there are a wide variety of skills offered so it is very probable that what you bring to the table would be of value and you could make some money doing it.

As with any site that provides a service you are interested in signing up for, make sure you do your homework. Read reviews about them see some of the comments others have left in the articles. This can give you a good idea if it is worth your time to sign up

Freelancer– Similar to Fiverr, a great resource for freelance jobs- This site is well done, nice layout and a great reputation, major companies like Boeing and Microsoft also use this service for projects they need. You can get good exposure from doing this and also get a project done for you as well.

I Writer– Another content site, high-quality writers can provide you with content for a small fee. You can research and provide your info or let them do the research as well, however, you will get better results if you provide the information you want in your article. I have a post on this site that was written on Iwriter.

If you have a passion for writing but do not want to deal with a blog or a website, you may want to consider this one. You can work as a writer and get consistent work.

Appen–  You can find a variety of tasks that are paid gigs depending on your skills. Jobs like “social media evaluator” or what they call “Micro tasks” that can be completed in a very short time frame.

As stated on the Appen Website, They are leading the charge in the development of human annotated datasets for machine learning and artificial intelligence. There are a wide variety of jobs available some short term some a bit longer. They are worth a look to see if you are interested in contributing

Postloop  a Content exchange marketplace- If you are a proficient writer, this is your gig. You get paid to write content for blogs and websites. It is a great opportunity. The users are rated and ranked depending on the quality of the content they provide to others. This keeps the information clean and of good value. You also can showcase your skills which helps improve your online reputation going forward.

Toptal – Top tier of freelancing talent in the fields of software developers, designers, finance experts, product managers, and project managers. The screening process to work for them is impressive and only 3% normally make the cut, so this is not the option to “dabble” with.

If you are talented in the skills listed then, by all means, you should consider applying. You could end up partnering with major companies to provide what they need. That can lead to many other great opportunities that could come your way.

CraigslistYes That Craigslist. Besides finding a variety of items for sale or trade like household items, you can also find Freelancer jobs and also offer up your services on the platform.

If you decide to meet someone in person from a Craigslist post be safe, make sure you meet in a public place to avoid any shenanigans that might be planned. You could also just contact via the site and make an exchange online and still get the work you want and still provide them with quality

Guru – Great layout and a good place to make it as a freelancer. This site was once a small startup, which was struggling for funds to now one of the industry leaders in the Freelancer space.

Guru’s core mission: Is to help skilled individuals around the world find work opportunities regardless of location, as stated by CEO Inder Guglani.

You offer your services and get an “agreement” from an employer looking for your services, which keeps this on the level with both sides following through with what has been decided for the work and pay compensation. there are 4 payment types. Pay by milestones by the hour, by task and receive recurring payments for a longer job.

99Designs A great place to get your Graphics design needs or Logo’s or even a Book Cover for a new E-book. This site is primarily based around “design contests” as a buyer you submit a detailed brief of what you are needing and you get many responses from designers who submit ideas for your approval.

As a designer you can sign up for Free and start creating your portfolio and get paid for your work, the amounts will vary based on the work agreed upon. So if you are a gifted designer or can make Logo’s look fantastic, this is a good option to consider.

Peopleperhour -There are many choices here to offer your services. Complete an online application to become a freelancer for them, They will review the application and once approved you can be matched to projects from a client and have access to many other projects available.

This one is worth a look to see if it is right for you, There are a variety of payment amounts, depending on the project and many of the freelancers charge an hourly rate for the service. This could be you doing this and making a nice living on from home.

Freelance Writing Gigs– Basically this is a community of freelance writers, who can get great exposure by posting on F.W.G website and by working with other website and blog owners to produce great content.

On this site, there is a nice link to 100 sites that pay writers in 2019. There are telecommute jobs if that’s your thing or you could be a copy editor or a tech writer, it just goes on and on. Check out this site and see if it works for you.

College Recruiter– A great option for students wanting to jump-start a career. This one may not be the best option for freelancing but you can get a head-start on a good career if you are just finishing up your college and are looking for a job. or a good internship which would be a great opportunity.

Kolabtree– This one is mainly for connecting with scientists or engineers, and other fields of scientific research like chemists and biologists, also for researchers and academics.

You can apply to “become an expert” from the website You may not have the skills yet to do this but keep it in mind if you are in this field as a way to have an income source when you are ready

Your own Website or Blog– Many of these options listed above are for writing jobs and graphics related activities among many other choices, but my point is, if you are a good designer and or a writer, then you are a tailor-made blogger or website owner.

In order to effectively monetize your site, you need good quality content and impressive images help as well so there ya go. You could be your own boss and try to make it on your own doing a wide variety of ways to make money with your skills.

Affiliate Marketing, Retail website, just to mention a couple of ways. Heck, you could create a site based on your skills and create your own writing and graphics gigs from others online, that seriously could end up being a nice niche market.

Alright, so we have gone through several ways to make money with a variety of freelance online jobs that can get you going with making a nice income source. For sure I would advise you to research these sites well before you sign up and read reviews about the services they provide so you can have a good idea of what you’re getting into here

This list contains several options but honestly, there are many more choices. I kept this to 15 so you don’t get a case of information overload.

    Hello, Todd and thanks for this info post for ways to make money writing for others as a Freelance writer.

    You say that you have used a couple of these yourself but, have you ever done any freelance stuff for someone else and what would one expect to make as a beginner at this? 

    These all sound like great opportunities but I was also wondering if there might be a vetting process involved before being accepted as a freelancer for any particular platform.  I have also read that it takes a little time to become known before one can make any real money doing Freelancing.  Is this the case or can you pick up projects right away?

    One last question.  I checked a few of the links and they seem to be free to join.  Are they all free to join or do some of them require an upfront payment to join.

    I don’t know much about this area, hence the questions.

    All the best,

      Good questions. I have used iWriter, Fiverr and dabled with Postloop. and have joined a few of the others as well. I have been happy with the results I received from these sites. As far as freelancing myself? well I have done a few things for folks but not as part of these sites. I am pretty commited to this website and it takes most of my time. But as my business grows I will have many income streams and freelancing will be one of them.

      The amounts you can make per job will vary, some are $5 some are $300 or more depending on what site you are on an what skills you have. But heck even small paying gigs can make money by having several going and before you know it you are experienced and can charge a bit more.

      As far as I know they are all free to join. Now I only joined as a Buyer to these sites, I have not signed up as a seller or freelancer so I can not say what all the requirements are. During research I found many to be free but some like Topal have a strong vetting process, Postloop does as well but that’s a good thing, to assure good quality. Fiverr is not as picky and you could get going there pretty quickly. Most of these sites make their money in the fee’s associated with the transactions

      Best bet is to try and sign up and sew what they ask for. I can’t hurt to find out your options

      Thanks for the comment and the great questions

      Take care

    I absolutely love your site Todd. It is well put together and the look very professional. Your content is presented in a way to get the job done which is to get viewers engaged and make a decision on the spot. You have presented me with numerous ideas on how to improve my site. Your content is well written, good size lettering with very good affiliates. I hope that you don’t mind but i saw a couple of affiliates that I am thinking about joining like the free traffic. I can tell that you have been doing this for awhile. Job well done, go out and get paid for your hard work and effort into putting this site together. 

    • Todd says:


      Wow thanks for the compliment. As a business owner I surely do not mind if you are interested in some affiliate offers. We both win that way. I have messed with the lettering and font sizes a few times, I am happy you like it. I will have other helpful pieces that can help with traffic soon. But the ones on the site work well. I just recently found another great place to help with that, I will share it in a review soon enough.I am glad I could help you with some ideas for your site and stop back by anytime. Let me know what you choose and how it goes for you.

      Thanks for the comment

    Thanks for the information,  I will definitely sign up to one or two of those sites. Many youths are not aware of those site, I think this sites can be favourable to youths that finish their colleges. Freelance has been a difficult thing for many youths because of lack of information and how to go about. Every human want to make money in the internet world regardless of how long it will take to finish up the tax as long as the pay is good.

    • Todd says:


      Yes youths can surely benefit from this. You are all born with computer skills and tech knowledge as part of your DNA, so to find a way to share what you are good at can help anyone make money. Yes you will still have to work at it , but it can really jump start an online business at an early age. The College recruiter can be a choice for folks coming out of college, or Fiverr for more specific projects.. There are many options here, I hope you find one that helps. Let me know how it goes, I wish you the best

    Thank you for sharing ¨15 Freelance Online Jobs- Earn a Living From Home¨. You mentioned Fiverr in your article, so I was wandering if you have heard of Zaaarly which is similar as far as performing microgigs, starting at $5 per job.

    From what I heard they are a great group of people. Management takes hiring very seriously so they have a team of talented employees who all enjoy working together. Good organization with clear direction and goals lets everyone own their own schedule and drive their own productivity. Transparency is a major theme, pretty rare in most companies. There´s also a level of fulfillment associated with working on a problem that really matters and can make a meaningful difference for a lot of people.

    In creating your job, all you need is choosing the category you want, enter a few details about your job and Zaarly will match you with the best business for your job.

    • Todd says:


      Good information. I have not heard of Zaarly, but I will certainly check it out. I will be updating this post with more places to choose from. This could one of them. Thanks for sharing about Zaarly.

    Nice article! As an affiliate marketer working towards making money myself, I noticed some of these jobs are ones that I will eventually very likely use to help my website when I start making money. Such as UpWork for things like proofreading. I can defintley see how some of these would be solid jobs, however, like anything, people would need to put in the work! Which one(s) of these are you currently doing?

    • Todd says:


      Glad I could provide some value for you. Recently I have Used Fiverr, Iwriter and Postloop. I checked out Appen last year, that was interesting. I plan to do the same and use proofreading and a bit more Graphics from one of these on here. 

      Thanks for the comment

    Also, one thing that I have started doing recently is making video tutorials on Wealthy Affiliate. I do have 10+ years working in the industry and know lots about SEO, internet marketing, etc.

    But, the way I figure it I can just talk about different things to help people develop their websites, seo mistakes, WordPress plugins, etc. that would be helpful for people that are newer to the industry.

    Wealthy Affiliate does pay $5 a tutorial. If you do 4 a week that will be $80/month. Not bad and you can scale it up more if you want. I love doing videos they are so much easier than typing 🙂

    Lastly, could use Udemy and make courses.  You do a course and get paid for life with them.  I haven’t done it yet, but I plan to within the next year or so.

    • Todd says:


      With your knowledge you could surely create an E-book or a training course and make money that way as well. Freelancing has many paths to follow, I have seen similar skills to your on Fiverr offered up for people so I know you could probably do very well that way. The Wealthy Affiliate piece is great, they have so many awesome features and courses that really help. There is also another way besides tutorials to make money from that platform. Site Comments, you get a credit equal to fifty cents per comment on other websites. You could help others out and make a little extra coin that way as well

      Thanks for the comment
