I am a freelance content writer. I have been writing articles and blog contents for websites, businesses and creative entrepreneurs.

Online jobs are the smartest and the easiest way to earn money in the comfort of your own home. Some of them turn out to be fraud or scams but there are legitimate job opportunities online which pay well. All a person needs to do is just be creative and showcase his or her writing skills. They require having your own PC, high-speed internet connection, personal mobile phone and good writing skills. Online jobs offer flexibility for payoffs, working schedule as well as enables one to afford a better lifestyle.

Here are a few uncommon and exciting online jobs that nobody has heard of yet:

1) Online Reseller

This job involves earning a large amount of money by selling items online and reaching out to clients who want to get rid of certain things, but they usually are unable to find the time to do it themselves. Those people who are really experienced sellers and have the necessary business savvy to promote their services can apply for this job. Sellers determine the market price and the value of the items they are selling. Some charge 5 dollars to 25 dollars per item or take a percentage(usually 20 to 40%) of total sales. If your business is good, reselling on eBay, Amazon and other sites can be a very lucrative and a solid job.

2) Virtual Assistant

It involves finding time to handle the emails, scheduling events and travel arrangements for a businessman or scheduling children’s doctor's appointments of a very busy executive. The job requirements include good administrative skills, organizational skills, time management skills as well as some experience so that one can easily handle and manage a multitude of tasks without losing any patience. Knowing Microsoft Office as well as good phone etiquette usually come in handy for this job.

3) Document Translator

This field involves participating in live conversations for translating documents and recordings from a virtual office(Skype and conference calls). Though one may have to work under strict deadlines sometimes, one can choose to turn down anything. Spanish is the most demanded language in this field followed by Japanese, Korean, Chinese and French. The job description includes the ability to be able to speak, read and write fluently in more than one language. One can expect to earn 12 dollars per hour but those who translate technical and scientific content can earn up to 40 dollars.

4) Interview Transcriber

Journalists, writers, and reporters have to conduct a lot of interviews but they rarely get the time to transcribe them. Due to the Internet, it is easier to just e-mail a digital file of an audio of the interview session. The job description requires good typing speed and accuracy and a good pair of headphones which will enable one to hear and understand better. One just has to simply listen to the conservation, write all it accurately and then send it back to the client. One can expect to earn 5 to 40 dollars per hour.

5) Affiliate Blogger

This job is more suitable for those who have their own jobs. If your blog attracts a lot of visitors, many companies will want to pay you or give you merchandise to advertise on your blog and link them to their websites. It requires having an audience that has a connection with the affiliate. For example, if the blog is about parenting, it’s suitable for those companies selling children’s clothing and toys. It involves earning a commission when someone follows a link on your blog to another site to buy something. One can earn 10 to 50 dollars per 1000 hits.
