Hey there! I need an editor familiar with the process of applying to grad schools in North America and that is a native speaker. The work consists of editing two SOPs that have around 3000 words. I DO NOT look for heavy editing but I look for someone to proofread them and check the consistency of the ideas presented. The SOPs are almost in their final form.
Almost all of the companies listed in this article are accepting applications. Most of them are always interested in hearing from qualified editors/proofreaders (judging by your experience, that sounds like you!). I frequently see editor positions posted on Indeed, too. Just search for Editor (in the “what” box) and Remote (in the “where” box). That will pull up all the remote editing positions currently available.
Set a schedule for yourself. Spend some time on marketing your services, sometime on following up with past clients and reminding them what you offer and that you would love to work with them again. Sometimes learning and improving your skill, and then of course time doing the thing you are selling. Working from home gives you lots of flexibility, but it can also mean procrastination. Get organized.
At Crowdsource, you get to use and grow your skills and grow your income as well. This is through completing small and big tasks. There is great flexibility in terms of how and where you work as well. For every project that is assigned to you, you get paid as soon as you complete it. You get support as well through training and testing before starting out and handling assignments. If your performance is great, you have opportunities to work on more projects and earn more money. Crowdsource is a great source of income for you if you are a great performer.
Surveys will rarely send you anything unless you're doing something that specifically requires you to test a product. Most surveys I do don't even ask for name and address. When they do, it's just to check for repeat submissions and to account for the possibility of numerous submissions from a single location changing the survey results. I think I've only ever had one survey mail me anything, and it was a request to follow up for additional pay. Most just send emails though, but even those are pretty rare. I get less than 1% of surveys to email me for a follow up, and most of those are from mTurk.
Thank you for this article. I am beginning the process of applying to different editorial companies. However, I’m having difficulty understanding how to make sure I pass proofreading/editorial exams before I am hired. I tried Proofreading Pals, but unfortunately, I didn’t pass and was unable to retake it. Would you happen to know any resources I can look into to prep me for taking pre-screening exams?
The more online clout you have as a business, the more money you’ll make. If you’re known for making lasting connections (as is the case with GetVoiP above), then you’ll have no issues building your online brand. You’ll be recognized in your community and begin to build a buzz in your industry. Tracking your numbers (how many people view your site, click each ad, and make a purchase from that click) gives you the leverage to expand this part of your business, enabling you to continue building your online rep.
If you are a fast reader and have a good grasp of grammar and language then editing may be a good freelance role for you. Editing is a great way to quickly make money online, and there are always editing jobs available on the freelance job sites. Editor’s usually get paid per word, so the faster you can check through work the more money you will make per hour.
Good at designing, programming, video editing or something else? Sell your skills on Fiverr. The process seems profitable, but it’s not as simple as it may seem. Competition is fierce and to really rake in the big projects, you need credibility on Fiverr. This usually means having to do really small and simple projects before earning anything significant.
I don't know shit myself to be honest but I know quite a few people that make money doing binary options/stocks/cryptocurrency. It's not easy but especially crypto you could really make a lot of money in quite easily. Those 3 are also not dependent on others like selling stuff. But you could also buy stuff from China and sell it online, think about stuff that's from China, gets sold here for significantly more, and what alot of people want (for example vapes).
Creating a video series and selling it as a digital download on your blog, much like an eBook, can be another great seller. A video course, teaching viewers a specific skill or how to achieve a particular activity, may well resonate with your audience. If you are going to go down this route then your videos need to be as professional as possible so you should consider investing in some video and lighting equipment, as well as editing software.

Yelling or swearing at the staff will not get you what you want. From what I've seen, it will only get you longer wait times, more copy and pasted responses, and potentially banned. Be polite, be friendly, try to keep your replies short (without leaving out important details), and say thank you. You're much more likely to get the help you want this way. Remember, the support staff is only there to help you. So, treat them well, and they will likely treat you better.
