Here Are the Top 5 Home Based Freelance Jobs

Freelancing has quickly started to become a popular way for people to earn money. It has a lot of perks, not the least of which is to have full control over when you work and also where since you can likely do most if not all of your work from home! There are now about 60 million freelancers in the US alone, and the recent pandemic did a lot to speed things up on that front.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that there are five freelancing jobs that are usually considered the best options for people who want to work from home. This data comes from Freelancer, a major site that allows people to connect directly with potential clientele.

The top job according to the report is Android app development, which has seen a massive 80% increase since the second quarter of 2022. AJAX and API developers are also on the rise, seeing an increase of 66.5% and 59.6% respectively. Following that we have blog writing which saw a 55.2% uptick, and finally YouTube content rounds off the list with 32.3% with all things having been considered and taken into account.

Many are turning to freelancing because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up tiding them over if they got laid off from their regular day jobs. In spite of the fact that this is the case, it is becoming a lot more than just a stopgap solution. Freelancing provides excellent work life balance and it can be surprisingly rewarding financially speaking, and that means that the rate of people joining the freelance space is likely going to grow by leaps and bounds.

Creating a profile on one of the many top notch freelancing communities can be a good first step for aspiring freelancers. The time to start is now, otherwise the incoming deluge of new workers may make it difficult to compete for clients. The market may soon become saturated and that will make the going quite tough.
