Are you looking to learn new skills to help you start up a business?

CPA Ben Robinson is offering a unique opportunity through his Bookkeeper Business Academy right now! You can sign up for his FREE 3-part online training program on how to start your own bookkeeping business.

In this training program, you will learn about how you can start and grow your own bookkeeping business, even if you know nothing about it. Every business is required to maintain bookkeeping records so a bookkeeping business can be a very profitable business idea!

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, there are almost 30 million businesses in the United States alone, with the overwhelming majority of these businesses having fewer than 10 employees. This makes them prime candidates for needing the services of a great bookkeeper.

These facts, along with recent enhancements to bookkeeping technology, have made bookkeepers very valuable professionals who are in high-demand.

As Robinson teaches, one of the best aspects of owning a bookkeeping business is that it can be 100% virtual making this business a great option for a work-at-home parent.

6 Non-Phone Work at Home Options


Guest post from Anna of Real Ways to Earn

Let’s face it — phone jobs are fairly common in the work-from-home world. A quick “work-from-home” keyword search on any popular job site will likely bring you pages and pages of results for phone-oriented work.

The obvious downside to phone jobs is that many people have legit reasons for not being able to do them. Maybe you have a loud background at home due to kids or pets. Maybe you’re hearing impaired. Maybe you don’t have a land line phone — or any phone — and can’t get one. Maybe you simply aren’t a people person and the idea of talking to strangers on the phone all day doesn’t appeal to you. Or maybe it’s a combination of all of the above!

Gratefully, there are quite a few non-phone options out there if a work-at-home phone job just isn’t in the cards for you. Here are 6 different options:

1. Chat Support

Chat-based customer support is the same as phone support, the obvious difference being that instead of helping customers via live conversation, you’re doing so via chat and email so it is completely non-phone.

Apple and Needle are two reputable companies that are frequently hiring chat agents to work at home.

2. Search Engine Evaluation

This type of work is also referred to as “Google Rating.” The work is more complex than I can explain in a few sentences, but to sum up, you are basically helping to ensure that major search engines like Google and Bing are providing the absolute best results possible for every search query typed in.

People who tend to excel at search engine evaluation are usually very internet savvy, good at doing online research, and well-versed in popular culture.

Some reputable companies to consider for search evaluation include Leapforce, Lionbridge, and Appen.

3. Freelance Writing

Freelance writers take on writing assignments from either personal clients or through content sites, blogs, and so forth. The great thing about freelance writing is that it’s one of the most flexible non-phone jobs out there. You can work any time of the day or night and take as many breaks as you need provided that deadlines are met.

Two companies that are almost always accepting new writers are Textbroker and Demand Media. However, you’ll earn the most money as a writer if you work to find private clients so you can set your own rates.

4. Transcription

Transcribers listen to audio files and type what they hear. While this may sound easy enough, it actually requires a lot of patience and concentration. Simply put, not everyone is cut out for it. It’s one of those things you just have to try out and see if it’s a fit for you.

The three most common types of transcription are general, medical, and legal. General is the easiest type of transcription to break into as a beginner because many companies will consider you with no past experience.

Verbal Ink, Focus Forward, and Quicktate are a few reputable companies with regular openings.

5. Test Scoring

As a remote test scorer, you’ll be scoring student’s standardized tests and essays. This is usually project-based work. In most cases, you’ll need at minimum a college degree to qualify. Some companies may require that you have a teaching degree, too.

Reputable companies that frequently have home-based scoring openings include Pearson and ETS.

6. Virtual Assisting

Virtual assistants have clients who need help with day to day things and provide that help — virtually. While it’s true that there are many virtual assistants who do phone work, not all do.

Most virtual assistants have different skill sets and the work they do will revolve around these skills, such as writing, graphic design, or social media management.

Some well-known companies that regularly hire virtual assistants include Fancy Hands and Worldwide 101. You can also go into business for yourself as a VA and get some private clients. That’s usually the most lucrative route.

As you can see, there are plenty of non-phone options in the work from home world! Hopefully these suggestions will have you doing some serious thinking about which industry you should pursue for non-phone work and be well on your way to getting started.

What about you? Do you have a non-phone work at home job you love?

4 Signs You’d Make a Great Transcript Proofreader… and How to Get Started

transcript proofreader

Guest post from Caitlin of Proofread Anywhere

I’ve been earning a full-time income from home as a part-time transcript proofreader since 2012.

Over the past 3 years, I’ve been asked the following two questions hundreds of times: “How do I know if I’d make a good transcript proofreader?” and “How can I get started?” To help you decide whether building a career like mine is a possibility for you, I’ve compiled a list of four signs you’d make a great transcript proofreader!

1. If your family and/or friends always make you read their stuff.

If you have always been the go-to person for your friends, family and coworkers when it comes to proofreading important documents, then transcript proofreading could make an excellent income stream for you! If you are naturally skilled with the English language, and truly enjoy spotting those irritating grammar mistakes in other people’s writing, you’d probably be a natural at transcript proofreading.

2. If all the office marketing materials have to go through you first.

Lots of proofreaders get their very first “jobs” at their existing workplace. Someone finds out that you have a knack for proofreading and editing, and before you know it, you’re the final stop for all important documents, e-mails, advertisements, et cetera.

3. If you can spot errors a mile away on billboards, church bulletins, menus.

You name it, you’ve seen mistakes in it, and it drives you crazy. Your natural “eagle eye” goes to work when you’re driving around town and seeing all of the obnoxious grammatical and spelling errors on billboards, signs, office pamphlets, and the like. You can’t help but twitch a little whenever you see a simple mistake on the front door of a business. Why didn’t someone catch that before they paid to have it plastered on their storefront?

Have you ever been tempted to call and let the business know that their display has the wrong version of their/they’re/there? If so, it’s a good sign you’d make a superb proofreader.

4. If you are a motivated self-starter and ready to work hard to learn a new skill.

This is the most important one! If you are no stranger to hard work, you know that no new skills come without time and practice. If you’re willing to keep going when the going gets tough, then you can feel confident that you have what it takes to make it in the transcript proofreading world.

How to Get Started:

1. Spruce up your profile on LinkedIn — make sure you have a recent picture, example work, and no missing information or typos.

2. Start a blog and use it to promote your proofreading skills — especially if you enjoy writing along with proofreading.

3. Get yourself some business cards to hand out whenever the opportunity arises. I’ve even handed out business cards at a Super Bowl party!

4. Network with other proofreaders. Proofreaders sometimes get overloaded and need to refer work they can’t handle out to trustworthy peers. Use Google to find ways to meet other proofreaders (conventions, online groups, etc.) and create a business referral network among yourselves.

5. Sign up for my free 7-day intro course for proofreaders. This course will give you a solid overview of transcript proofreading, plus other avenues available in which you could make money proofreading. Any new skill takes effort to master, and if you’re game to make something of it, proofreading can become a career for you the same way it has for me.

6. If you feel proofreading is truly your calling, the next step is to enroll in Transcript Proofreading: Theory and Practice, my intensive, all-inclusive course designed to get you from beginner status to confident transcript proofreader in just 1-3 months.

If you’ve ever been interested in working from home (or anywhere else that fits your lifestyle) transcript proofreading just might be the perfect job for you!

Caitlin Pyle earns a full-time income from home by proofreading transcripts for court reporters. She blogs on Proofread Anywhere and teaches an intensive multimedia online course called Transcript Proofreading: Theory and Practice, designed to prepare other “eagle eyes” for a career in transcript proofreading.
