Search Engine Evaluation:

Working from home evaluating search engine results is something you might like if you need a work-at-home job where you can set your own hours. I know several people who work from home making doing this kind of work and love it. There is usually no set schedule so you set your own hours, and since all work is done online, noise is not a problem.

Telephone Mystery Shopper Work

Making calls from home as a Mystery Shopper does not always require a quiet background. This is because you are calling businesses and acting as an interested potential customer, so normal background noise is not a problem.

Keep in mind that this is more of a side hustle to make extra money, and not really a source for a replacement income. But on the plus side, it is flexible and fun, and no experience is required for these jobs.

Confero You can click the 'Become a Mystery Shopper' tab located on the left side of their home page to get started.

Perception Strategies - They hire both in-person mystery shoppers and phone mystery shoppers. However, they may not always be hiring, so you need to check back often.

Talk2Rep - They hire chat agents as well as customer service. They also seem to have mystery phone agent openings as well from time to time.

Yardi-Matrix - You will be calling apartment communities and asking questions as part of a rent survey. Background noise is definitely okay. Their winter phone survey positions are full, but you can still check them out and sign up for their spring 2018 phone surveys starting in April 2018.


Virtual Assistant Jobs From Home

Working as a Virtual Assistant from home is one of those jobs that can start as a part-time gig, and end up as a full-time job. You can even start your own Virtual Assistant business if you decide you like being a VA. Some of these jobs will be doing tasks mostly online. Others will be working more directly with clients, handling jobs for them like phone calls, making appointments, keeping track of their schedules, etc.

Time Etc. is a website where you tell them what skills and experience you have when you apply, and they will match you with clients. Just keep in mind that you will probably need to show some VA experience to get accepted with Time Etc.

If you do not have any experience, check the list of companies below where you can apply. Most of these will offer smaller online tasks that you can do from home. They will be more open to applicants without experience, and you can choose when and where you want to work.

And should you decide that you would like to start your own business as a virtual assistant, I suggest you check out Horkey Handbook. You will get lots of great information, tips, and advice on how to go about becoming a professional VA!

Work-from-home job opportunities in customer service are popping up everywhere these days. Take Babylist, for example. This company hires remote customer service agents to help expectant moms and dads to set up their baby registries.

Work From Home as an ESL Teacher

Consider becoming an ESL tutor and teaching English as a second language. While some ESL companies will require applicants to have a BA degree,  there are also legitimate online tutoring jobs that do not.

You will need a computer, a reliable internet connection, a webcam, and a quiet working area.

VIPKid -  This is a well-known company that hires remote ESL teachers. There are some requirements to be hired with VIPKid, including a bachelor's degree.

Cambly - Cambly ESL tutors do not need to have a degree or experience. Pay is every Monday, and the pay rate is $10.20 per hour. Work may be inconsistent though so you may want to consider this as more of a side gig for extra money.

Rosetta Stone - Their website states that a Bachelor's Degree is required to apply.

Remote Jobs For Writers

One of the most flexible ways to make money from home is by doing freelance writing. There are lots of sites that will pay you to write articles for them. I highly suggest using a free grammar checker like Grammarly if you do any freelance writing.

I use Grammarly and I absolutely love it. It automatically checks your writing for spelling errors and grammar mistakes and gives you suggestions as well. Did I mention this is a free service??

Here are a few places where you can get paid to write articles. There are many more, of course, but I picked these sites because the audience they write for is primarily moms.

Other places where you can try your hand at freelance writing:
