Legitimate Remote Part-time Online Jobs
Here are 19 of the best part-time jobs online with a flexible schedule.
Blogging is #1 on this list because it is one of the most flexible jobs you can have and the earning potential is limitless!
Blogging is my favorite form of passive income. I make money just for people reading my articles from ads, so if you’re reading this article, thank you!
When you get a nice amount of people reading your articles, it brings in a nice income.
Here’s a screenshot of my earnings in March from ads:
Blogging takes ‘A LOT’ of work (in the beginning anyway) and a while before you start making money, but it’s so rewarding if you hang in there. I earn much more than when I was at my corporate job (I’ve been blogging for 18 months) and work about 10 hours a week now.
This is why this is the BEST ONLINE PART-TIME JOB.
How much can you earn? I know bloggers earning between $2,000-$100,000+ a MONTH (and I’m one of them)
2. Online Writer
If you don’t want to start a blog, but like to write have you ever considered freelance writing?
I interviewed Holly Johnson who earns over $200,000 a year as a Freelance Writer. I didn’t even know that was possible!
How much can you earn? Holly Johnson said she finds it hard for you NOT to earn at least $40,000-$50,000 a year.
She also has a neat FREE workshop on how to build a six-figure writing career.
Do you cringe when you see spelling errors and grammar mistakes? Do you have a passion for words? If so, you could make a great Proofreader.

14. Online Freelance Jobs
Freelance jobs are a great way to make money online part-time. You deliver a service for a fee with the ability to work where and when you want with unlimited earning potential!
I have found many freelance jobs on Upwork. I sift through the available work options to see which project suits me the best.
I only apply to the jobs I KNOW I can do well because after the project is over its important that I get a good review so I can continue to get more jobs.
I suggest the following when applying to jobs on Upwork:
- Focus on the projects with only 5-10 proposals or less submitted (less competition)
- Check that the client has the “blue verified payment check” before applying
- When you see a job that fits you, apply for it immediately!
- If you live in the U.S., make sure to check “U.S. Only.”
- If you are pitching your first job, try to offer your services for free for one week to ease the client’s mind since you have no references or reviews. If the client likes you move on with the “paid service” the following week. That’s how I won my first job, and the client still paid me for my first week.
For a full list of freelance services, you can provide on Upwork click here.
15. Travel Agent
Do you enjoy traveling and helping people? If so, you should consider becoming a Travel Agent and enjoy the perks.
