he world is evolving and so are the ways people work and earn. Years ago, youngsters would aim to study, get a job in a renowned company and earn a decent package. But with the growing trend and scope of self-employment, new freelancers are emerging every day and are earning a fair amount of money.
If we are good at doing something and if it is in demand, we often desire to become a freelance professional and work independently. But, before you decide to do anything like this, you might want to know a few skills that would prove lucrative either as an added skill to your portfolio or by working full-time with it.
Social Media Management
Today, social media is not just a source to kill time or connect with people but also a platform for companies to market their products and services. The growing online traffic has resulted in high demand for frequent and rigorous social media marketing.
And when social media activities are so important, it is obvious every company wants dedicated executives for handling their social media accounts. The responsibilities involve running online campaigns and keeping their page updated with fresh and engaging content.
Instagram marketing professional
What makes Instagram stand apart from other social media channels is its ever-growing popularity, especially within the youth.
Having a good knowledge of the algorithm on which Instagram works can yield you a good sum on an hourly basis. However, knowing to upload pictures on Instagram doesn't make you a professional. You need to know the perfect ways to upload content which would attract a lot of traffic with the help of appropriate captions and hash tags.
If you are good at writing content, you are in high demand in the market as every website and media firm owners continuously hunt for good content creators.
However, only good and jazzy writing doesn't work when it comes to SEO friendly content. With the help of suitable keywords and tags, the content should attract a lot of organic traffic thereby increasing the revenue of the websites.
Photography and video editing
What words can't do, visuals can. Amongst all the skills, having good knowledge and talent related to photography or video editing can yield you profitable freelance jobs.
Before you set out in the market to find freelance projects related to these skills, work hard towards making an impressive portfolio which acts as a deciding factor for your hiring.
Recording voice and earning is not a new profession. With the growing adaptability of freelancing, companies need people to record voices from across the world in multiple languages.
There are various fields which demand voiceovers such as audio book reading, dubbing, e-learning instructions, animations movie audios and video games. The money paid for these jobs is per second basis.
