Tools That You Need For Home Based Job
Okay, so first thing let’s talk about the tools that you need. The majority of working from home job opportunities requires a computer/laptop and an internet connection, so that’s the first thing that you should really have to have.
You need a computer/laptop and internet connection because this guide right here we’ll be teaching you how can you get a job from foreign companies, like businesses from the United States.
So it’s like working abroad and getting paid as much as the level of earning of OFW’s or even more, but you were just going to be there in the comfort of your home. Sounds interesting? let’s go ahead and learn what skills you need to start working from home.
Learning Working From Home Skills
There are actually lots of types of home-based jobs that you can apply to and start working from home here in the Philippines. From data entry, writing articles, becoming a digital marketer, building websites and many other jobs.
But if you want to really find a good job and earn a decent amount of salary, you need to pick a high-income specific skill that you need to master.
I’m going to just select six high-income specific skills that you can select from and learn it. And the good thing about these skills is that there are lots of free tutorials on YouTube you can watch to learn it.
Aside from that, eventually, if you want to start your own business, you can also use these skills to have a successful business. Here are the skills that I’m talking about:
1. Facebook Marketing
Facebook is one of the best platforms for business owners to get potential customers. Needless to say, businesses/companies need people/teams to maintain and keep their Facebook marketing running. And good news for us because we can be that person to be part of that team.
I have a friend who is working as a Facebook Advertising manager, he was working with a digital marketing company based in Largo Florida. And he mentioned that he’s earning 40,000 to 50,000 pesos per month working as Facebook Ads manager.
And the good thing about learning Facebook marketing skills is that there’s a lot of free tutorials on YouTube. Just search for “Facebook Ads Tutorial” study for at least one week and if you think you’re ready enough then go ahead and find a job.
Just continue reading because I have a list of websites where you can find a home-based job here in the Philippines.
And by the way, I’m proud to let you know that I learned Facebook Ads from [Manuel Suarez] of AGM Marketing were my friend that I have mentioned above is working.
2. Google Advertising Manager
Google is another great platform for businesses to get customers. And with that, just like Facebook, they need people to do the job for them.
Usually, companies that will hire you if you have Google advertising skills are digital marketing companies, and they really have a good amount of pay.
It takes some time to learn Google advertising because it’s not going to be just how to create an advertisement, you also need to learn data analysis like using Google analytics.
But trust me, if you will learn it, it’s going to be for a lifetime. And you can use it for your own business in the future too, or you can also offer services to local businesses that you know.
3. Building A Website
Another great skill to learn with high earning salary is learning how to build a website. Let me guess what you are thinking right now? I’m not an IT, and I don’t like to do codding, etc. Yeah?
We’ll, 10 years ago building a website is really only for those who are good at computers. For me, I would compare it building a rocket and going out to space, because just like you I don’t know programing language, coding, whatsoever.
But not today, because you can just easily create a website using drag and drop features.
I personally build this website of mine right here, and how I learned to build a website, is through just watching YouTube videos.
I actually even offer to build a website as one of my services, and I have already built quite a numbers of websites for my clients both local and international.
If you will ask me how much I was making, well, I charge my clients from 150$ to 500$ per project, it depends on the client’s website customization request. More features, means more money you can ask for the client.
And yeah! since we’re talking about a job, I will show you later websites where you can find building websites jobs, WordPress to be specific.
4. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
You cannot learn Search Engine Optimization (SEO) if you don’t have or you don’t know how to create a website.
According to Wikipedia, Search engine optimization is the process of increasing the quality and quantity of website traffic (visitors) by increasing the visibility of a website or a web page to users of a web search engine.
This skill is about making clients website or web pages ranks on search engines search results for them to get organic (unpaid) traffic (web visitors) to their website.
This might take you some time to learn but this is a massive and supper in-demand skill if you want to make a huge decent amount of salary working from home.
If you’re being routed to this article from a search result, maybe from Google, that means I have optimized this page through SEO.
You can also just watch videos to learn SEO, or you can also read SEO blogs. One of the people that I would suggest for you to learn SEO is Neil Patel.
5. Writing Articles
Another popular home-based job here in the Philippines is creating content for businesses or writing articles for their blogs.
This is also related to Search Engine Optimization, I mean business needs articles for them to show up on search results and get organic web visitors and they need our help to write content from them.
All you need is, of course, knowledge in writing, and ideas about whatever that particular topic that you will be working with.
This is also one of the most in-demand home-based jobs in the sense that there’s a lot of websites popping out on the internet daily and that means they need content and they need help.
If you have writing skills, you can go ahead now and try to apply on these two websites that I would recommend you to find a writing jobs:
Or you can just simply head over to Google and search for “Writing Jobs”.
6. Transcribing Jobs
Transcribing jobs is another popular home-based job here in the Philippines, in fact, I even found a Facebook group for transcribers that you can also try to join into to get some tips.
So what is transcribing? The easiest way to understand it, is I think by giving you an example scenario.
Let’s just I was having a podcast talking about “high paying home-based jobs in the Philippines”. And I would like to have it also as a blog post, so what I’m going to do is, I will hire transcribers to convert my audio into written words.
Or, I have a video and I want to make a subtitle for it, so I will hire someone to write down whatever I said in the right point of time. Easy right?
If you want to know how much you are going to make as a transcriber, I have two websites that I would recommend you to apply and find transcribing jobs, and that is the Rev.com and GoTranscipt transcribing company.
You can also try to learn and acquire skills like video editing, logo designing, and Photoshop, as your secondary skills. Because entrepreneurs that are maximizing the potential of social media marketing needs our help and we can help them through those skills and get paid.
Alright, and the next part is going to be the websites where you can sign up and find home-based jobs.

It’s not going to be about how many freelancing websites you are going to sign up. Because one of the websites that I’m going to share you has almost complete of any type of work from home jobs you can imagine.

I personally used Fiverr.com to showcase my services. This website is actually not like Onlinejobs.ph where you can just easily browse around job listings and apply.
This website is a marketplace where you submit listings (the job that you can do) and let business owners (outsourcers) find and hire you to do a particular job.
Let’s say you know how to build WordPress websites, then you can go ahead and fill out their form to submit your skills or the job that you can do.
Fiverr is again another great place to get a home-based job but keep in mind that so should really good of what skills that you are going to add there.
Because your client can give you feedback that might degrade your credibility as a seller, and they can also easily ask for a refund and the platform will automatically do it if the client is not really satisfied with what you have produced.
