There are so many directions this one can go in as a work from home job for a military spouse, such as copywriting, basic document editing, e-book editing, journal editing, etc. You could even become a “launch expert.” This is someone that goes through a person’s launch campaign and checks all their work, from membership pages, to landing pages…a really awesome idea!
7. Ghost Writer
Some people write because they have something to say, others because they have to say something. Not everyone that writes a book enjoys writing, and that’s where a ghostwriter comes in. People pay very well for these services! A person gives you their rough draft or book concept, and you write the book for them…chapter by chapter. It’s still their story…just articulated by a ghostwriter.
8. On-Line course content writer
Online self-paced learning is a 1 Billion dollar industry! Platforms like Kajobi, Udemy, and Zippy courses house thousands of courses created by any and everyone. If you have a passion for writing and researching subjects, you can build courses and charge students to enter your class…NO experience required. If you already have skills and knowledge in a certain area, put that down on paper…create a course out line and start building your first on-line course!
9. Membership Site Host
This is a job where you work from home and provide a service that gives fans, students, professionals, moms, etc. access to information you’ve researched and vetted. They in turn pay you to access this information on a monthly basis. This is a growing trend in the entrepreneur world. We don’t have lots of time to research and compile data, because we are often a one man/woman show. Having access to sites that provide everything we need in one hub is MEGA!
10. Online Store
There are two options to explore when considering an on-line store. You can purchase items, which will require you to stock and maintain inventory. This route will require some upfront cost. If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of maintaining inventory or don’t have the capital, you can do what’s called “drop-ship.” You work from home and post another companies products on your site, when a customer orders…you reach out to the company and they drop-ship it to the end-user. This limits your control over how the product is packaged and you won’t have an opportunity to do inspections for quality control. It’s a great way to get started with little to no cost.
This could be tied in with a virtual assistant, or it could easily stand alone the more specific and targeted the research topic is. You could help new and aspiring public speakers find gigs in their area to pitch to. You could do market research for a content developers, research state and federal guidelines for non-profit organizations to assist with their policies and procedures manuals. The possibilities are endless with this one. The more specific you are, the more you’ll be seen as the expert researcher in a particular area.
12. Energy Efficiency Consultant
Energy efficiency is huge in this day and age. Everyone wants to know how they can conserve and stop their homes from leaking money! You could partner with a local realtor and work a deal where you do energy consulting and let home owners know things like which windows to replace because they are wasting energy. You could even go a step further and offer to help them fix the problem by hiring a sub-contractor to do the work…or do it yourself if that’s your gift zone.
13. App Developer
I’m talking iPhone, iPad, Android, etc. If you’ve never done something like this before, it may take you some time to research and learn how to do it. Once you’ve figured it out ONCE, you’ve got it! There are big bucks in app development and creation. I mean come on, Kim Kardashian developed one…granted she didn’t do it herself, but she doesn’t do anything that is profit bearing. If you don’t have any apps that you want to create for yourself, then do it for other people. Some people have a great idea and concept, they just needs someone to implement it for them.
