Content Writing Gigs

content writing gigs

Content writing is something that most people are familiar with. This is the most commonly offered gig where a seller, like you, writes content on demand. But obviously, this isn't everyone's cup of tea. Content writing doesn't necessarily have to be in English only, but most of the times this is the case. Even though you would find many clients who are looking for content in other languages, but mostly English content remains in comparatively high demand.


Content writing itself has evolved as an industry. You have to consider the fact that you can not be a content writer who can write on any given topic. Just because you can write in English, doesn't mean you can write on any given topic. You must choose your niche, a topic you are good at. You can offer the following gigs as a content writer:


  1. Web Content Writing 
  2. Academic Content Writing
  3. Product Description Writing
  4. Service Reviews Writing
  5. Blog Comments Writing
  6. App Reviews Writing

Social Media Gigs


Almost every business has a presence on social media these days. No matter if a business is small or medium, there comes a time when its owner wants to hire someone to manage social media communities of its business. As almost every mobile comes with pre-installed social media apps, everyone knows how these social media platforms work.

To manage someone's social media accounts, you don't need to be a social media wizard, even though you will be preferred if you know more than others, but still, if you are good enough at managing social media accounts, pages, groups, and communities, you can cash this digital skill. In this category, generally following services can be offered through gigs:

VA gigs are for them who look for long term work. VA gigs offer routine solutions that are normally required by a business or an individual. For example, if you are good at data entry work or responding to emails, you can offer this service as a gig. Virtual Assistance skills can vary individual to individual depending upon their skill set. But since this article is specifically for beginners, we are going to discuss what a beginner can offer, but again, every beginner can have a different skill set so they can provide virtual assistance that compliments their skills.

Not to be confused with PA services. PA or Personal Assistance would require you to do different tasks such as giving your opinion under certain circumstances, however, VA or Virtual Assistance would require you to perform tasks. In short, PA is more of analytical work while the VA is more of practical work. As a virtual assistant, you can generally offer the following services:

  1. Data Entry Tasks
  2. Microsoft Office related Tasks
  3. Web Research
  4. Routine Online Tasks Management
  5. Customer Support
  6. File Conversion

You don't need to have any specific degree to sell your advice, and that is the beauty of these counseling gigs. All you would need to have is empathy, compassion and a deep sense of observation.

There are many such services you can provide depending upon what your experience or skill set is, but generally following are the type of counseling gigs that someone can think of offering online.
