Just as the economy is a global entity, so is the labor market – increasingly so. Here are some of the new telecommuting jobs created by the virtual economy, which may not have existed a decade ago.
1. SEO copywriting: Many people still don’t know what this profession is. However, this is a thriving freelance writing job mostly done by remote workers. What exactly does SEO copywriting do? First, explain that SEO stands for search engine optimization.
SEO copywriters write text in such a way that the website or blog is easier to find online. Webmasters, web design companies, online marketing companies and advertising companies all pay high fees to these professionals to produce large amounts of content.
How much does an SEO copywriter make? The free write rate – in any niche market – is everywhere. Rates range from $1 to $5 for a 350 word article, up to $100 or more.
For 300-400 words, most are in the $15-35 range.
If you want to work from home as a freelance writer, this is a profession that you definitely want to study further.
2. Social Marketing Expert: What Is It? Social marketing experts create and update personal information and posts on social networks and bookmarking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, StumbleUpon, LinkedIn, etc.
Since most of these sites require constant interaction to build a base, freelancers are usually hired to maintain accounts. This is the newest form of “free” marketing on the Internet, and it is very effective.
What is the salary for social marketing work? Again, it depends. The initial fee for a freelancer to create an account ranges from $15 to $75. Then they charge another fee to update the account’s posts, respond to questions, etc.
Who uses social marketing experts? Internet marketers and entrepreneurs, e-retailers, online retailers, etc. If your business is online, you should engage in social marketing and networking as the benefits cannot be ignored. For example, did you know that MySpace has 122 million users? Even a small fraction of this traffic can bring good news to any business, no matter how big or small.
3. Professional bloggers: These days it seems like everyone and their brothers have a blog. But now this is a real profession. The company actually pays blogging fees to freelance writers. Which blog do they write? Breaking news in the business; spreading niche advice, tips and tricks; related industry events; etc. This list is endless.
What is the salary for blogging? It depends on the industry, content type and freelance rates. The minimum price for each post is $5 and the maximum price is $50 or more. Most are in the $10-$20/post range.
We live in the age of new media and new media has spawned many new professions. And luckily for those looking to work remotely, many of these new media jobs are “work from home”.
