Welcome to freelancing school. I am Mike Volkin. Today we are talking about freelancing jobs that are always in demand. Many times people come to me wanting to freelance but don’t know what they want to do yet. They want to start a new category. They want to change their career and do something new. Well, I’m going to give you some of my top evergreen freelance jobs and also jobs that are in demand that will not be going away anytime soon. First and foremost, I may be biased but I think the first one I should mention is marketing. Every business needs marketing at some point Mark Getting is one of those few jobs that touches just about every department within a company. So if you are interested in marketing, I would say consider starting with social media, which is one of my evergreen jobs on this list here. Social media is something that wasn’t even a skill set a couple decades ago or even a decade ago, but now is pretty much a part of our lives and doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. So if you want to be a social media specialist, even a specialist in one particular area of social media, I know one of our freelance master class instructor specializes in Instagram. So you can specialize in just one platform and get really really good at that one platform. You shouldn’t have any issues finding work on anything related to social media, but marketing in general is going to be in demand for as long as businesses exist. Another evergreen freelance job is programming like Marketing Pro Gaming is here to stay wasn’t an issue two or three decades ago, but now is an issue for many companies always having to update their software or even create software. So programming is always in high demand. So if you’re that analytical type that doesn’t mind sitting in front of a computer and coding, there’s a lot of great benefits to being a programming related Freelancer and just like marketing, you can specialize obviously, in one particular type of programming. Okay, web design websites are here to stay the internet is not going anywhere. So if you have a specific desire to match our your artistic, creative mind with your analytical mind, you may want to consider web design. It’s a perfect marriage of being able to kind of look and see what a company would need in terms of layout and design and then actually coding that into the website. Artificial Intelligence, something that’s not so much in demand right now but will be very Soon as we enter the robotic age, artificial intelligence is a very technical and analytical freelance skill, but does pay a lot. In fact, I heard on the radio the other day how artificial intelligence specialists are getting paid a salary. And some of these high tech firms have a million dollars or more a year. And these are obviously the best of the best and true artificial intelligence. I’m not talking about fake artificial intelligence. There are a lot of companies out there saying come check out our AI artificial intelligence, and they’re not artificial intelligence at all. It’s just some kind of deductive reasoning. Basically, if the user selects this, then the computer does that. But artificial intelligence is a little bit more complicated than that. By definition, it is a it’s basically a theory of how computer systems are able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence. So you’ve got examples like visual perceptions, speech recognition. decision making is a big one. And translation between languages. If you can specialize in any of those, oh my gosh, the opportunities to you are endless and the next few decades, if not more, another evergreen freelance job is consulting on how to consult. Now that seems might seem like a joke, but it’s absolutely true. There are a lot of people out there that consult specifically to teach people how to consult and be consultants, and even some posers out there. I won’t say their names, but there’s this one guy who’s very popular. He’s a great salesman, but he was a waiter. And he decided that he wanted to start a business on how to teach consultants how to consult, and his tips are so hilariously generic, generic
that he has a really cool website and he wears a really fancy suit, and he seems really important, but his tips are just terrible, but he is popular and there’s a lot of people talking about him and I’m just flabbergasted by how he does what he does. But if you’re one of those people that likes to Good advice, I would suggest getting some experience first but this one person I’m speaking of has one particular marketing funnel that he just takes people through and he tells consultants Listen, get yourself a website, throw up some paid ads, and, and then drive your consulting revenue that way, and people buy his stuff. It’s amazing. So if you want to consult on how to consult that is an option for you because consultants are a big part of today’s economy. photography and no matter what form photography comes in, whether it’s the printed out Polaroid old version, where you shake it and in the picture comes, comes out, you know, in on paper in your hand, like the old school ways or digital media, or who knows where photography will be probably 3d printed on your hand or some kind of hologram like in Star Wars, but photography is here to stay and people will always need photographers. No matter how good iPhones get or smartphones with with taking photographs yourself. There’s always going events, you know, weddings and whatnot where professional photographers will be needed. And of course, I would be remiss not to mention the largest makeup of the freelancer marketplace is writers. There’s always a need for the written word no matter what type if it’s instruction manuals or blog posts, writers are always in demand. So if you like to write, whether it’s the creative aspect of writing or the technical component of the layout and the grammar of writing, writing is always a great career. Alright, so I hope these evergreen freelance jobs spurred some ideas for you if you’re interested in either changing or developing a career in freelance.
