9 Best online weekend jobs that you can try in 2021:

Earning some extra money helps you financially as well as it can help you to improve your lifestyle.

It was not easy to find a weekend online job a couple of decades before. But it is pretty easy nowadays.

I always suggest starting something that can generate passive income along with other online or offline jobs. Nobody wants to work 24x7.

Blogging is a safe way to generate passive income. It takes time, but if you follow the right steps, it is a great way to generate passive income without investing a huge amount.

In this post, I am listing down the 10 best online jobs that you can try on weekends.

Freelance writing:

Freelance writing is a popular way to generate some side income. You will write for a website like a news website, tech website, teaching website, etc., and get paid for that.

Payment is mostly based on word count, like 50$ for 1000 words. The rate may vary based on your experience and your location.

The easiest way to start freelance writing is by applying for jobs on different freelance sites. Freelance writing can be started with any type of educational or professional background.

Finding out the first client is hard, but once you write a couple of articles, you can show them to your potential clients.

Online tutoring:

Online tutoring is a high demanding field in most countries. You can teach from math to your mother tongue to adults or children anywhere in the world.

The Internet makes it easy to teach someone without meeting face-to-face. There are many online tutoring websites and these websites make it easy to find out the students.

Most online tutoring jobs are flexible, but be prepared to work at night if required.

Make online course:

Online courses can generate cash passively. The demand for video courses is rising day by day. If you are good at a topic then you can try to make a video course on it.

You can make online courses on various topics like cooking, interior designing, writing, etc. You don’t have to be perfect on a topic or you don’t need a degree for it.

If you can spend some time over the weekends to prepare a course, you can upload them to websites like Udemy to make some extra cash.

This is not a job, i.e. you are not trading hours for money, also no one can guarantee success on it.

Freelance graphic designing:

If you know graphic designing, you can make a good amount of money doing graphic designing during the weekend. It can be a logo design or brochure design, website design, mobile app design, T-shirt design, or anything. Without design, nothing can be built.

If you start getting clients, you can raise your hourly rate and you need to work only for a few hours over the weekend to make some extra bucks.

Make sure to create a portfolio before starting to apply for jobs. It will become easier to get jobs with a good portfolio.

Social media manager:

Social media managers are responsible for handling a brand’s social media presence. It includes different tasks like monitor, moderate user comments, replying to the comments, social media partnership with other accounts, etc.

If you can do small designs or photo editing, then that is a plus point. Most website or blogs also has social media accounts and a huge amount of traffic is driven by social media.

Pinterest is a popular social media channel that most blogs and websites prefer. Previously, I posted one blog post on Pinterest virtual assistance that you can check what is Pinterest virtual assistance and how to become one.

Video editor:

With the rising popularity of social media applications and other short video applications, most people prefer video over text. Editing a video is not an easy task and it takes time to edit.

Many content creators on YouTube and FaceBook wants a video editor to edit their videos. If you know how to edit videos, you can certainly look for a video editor job.

You can target Facebook and Youtubers with rising followers and other brands that use videos on their social media channels.

Start a YouTube channel:

Why not create your own YouTube channel? You can start on any topic. It can be on cooking, drawing, bodybuilding, or on any other topic that you are comfortable with.

It is free and you don’t need any fancy pieces of equipment to start recording a video. Your smartphone and a $20 microphone will do the job.

YouTube can give you a nice stream of passive income. But, make sure to pick a topic that is popular and less competitive. Also, keep the videos sharing on social media to gain subscribers in the initial days.

Sell your stock photos and videos:

If you love photography then this is an easy way to earn passively on the side of your job. You can click photos or record videos on nature, cityscape, people, animals, etc., and sell them on stock library sites.

There are many sites where you can sell your photos and videos.

Freelance programming:

Programming jobs have a huge demand in the freelance marketplace. Small agencies and entrepreneurs prefer a freelance programmer to complete their project over an agency. If you are a programmer and if you love programming, then finding out freelance jobs will not be harder for you.

Most freelance programming jobs are small and can be done over the weekend. Also, if you can deliver on time and a good product, there is a high chance that you will get more work from the client in the future.

Some of the most popular work from home programming jobs include website development, mobile development, game development, chatbot development, data scraping, etc.

Final Thoughts:

Be sure to go for a job that you are interested in. It requires time, dedication, and continuous effort to get success in Freelancing or any other online jobs. Don’t lose your hope. Just start.
