Land one of these gigs, and you’ll be happier than ever and will have all your friends jealous of your newfound source of income.

Calling all Chatty Cathy’s: earn big as a voice-over actor

As a voice-over artist, the project possibilities are endless. You could voice a goofy cartoon character for a children’s show or be tasked with reading the script of a cleaning product commercial. You could even find a gig reading subtitles in a foreign language for either online videos or movies!

If you have a smooth, enthusiastic, or otherwise attractive voice, this may be a great opportunity for you. It offers flexible work hours and the ability to work from home. While starting pay for this role is between $10 - $18 per hour, established voice-over actors earn a comfortable salary averaging $100,000+ a year!

Put your console to better use as a video game tester

Do you enjoy playing video games? If so, why not get paid to do it! As a game tester, your job is to check for glitches or bugs as you play the game from beginning to end. Normally, video game testers are hired by gaming companies and are expected to test extensively, many times replaying game levels multiple times to make sure they’ve tested every permutation of the game. So, patience for repetition is a great trait to have!

According to Glassdoor, the average earnings for a video game tester ranges from $14 - $20 per hour.

Use your investigative skills as an online bounty hunter

With the modernization of our daily lives, bounty hunter’s jobs are not quite as they used to be. A lot of the work is now done online! When someone suddenly moves without telling anyone, bounty hunters may be hired to track them down. Many times, creditors will need to find out where they moved to so they can settle things such as credit card debt, child support, or other financial obligations. This is a fun job opportunity for those who are detail-oriented and self-motivated.

Online bounty hunters report to making approximately $30,000 - $50,000 per year.

Help change the lives of others as a health coach

Perfect for those who are passionate about living a healthy lifestyle, online health coaches work with clients to achieve various wellness goals. You’ll act as a mentor to others by encouraging them to feel their best through individualized lifestyle and diet changes.

Though there is no degree requirement for this role, there are different certificate programs available online! Some popular programs include:

As a health coach, you will most likely set your own rates. On average, health coaches earn between **$18 - $30 per hour. **

Show off your skills as an online instructor

People will pay others to give them virtual lessons on pretty much every subject imaginable. So, whether you’re a wizard in the kitchen or a self-proclaimed Jimmi Hendrix, put your skills to work as an online instructor! This job is great because you can set your own hours, rates, and even decide what topics you want to focus on.

Online instructors pay can range drastically depending on the topic at hand. The good news is, you can set your own wages!

Type your way to $25+ per hour as a transcriber

Have you ever thought about transcription work? Basically, transcribers listen to audio files and type out what they hear. This is an entry-level gig with a lot of room for growth!

As a successful transcriptionist, many workers make upwards of $25 per hour!
