In this post, I am going to talk about the top freelance services to offer in 2019. Some of these will probably be obvious, but since you might not immediately think of all of them.

There are so many different services you could potentially offer to clients, and you can make money with whatever you find most interesting and have the most talent and ability to do.


Writing is the first thing most people think of when it comes to freelancing, because it’s the one thing that doesn’t take a lot of natural talent or technical training to do. Most people have enough of a grasp of basic English spelling, grammar and punctuation to take at least basic writing jobs.

In fact, some freelance designers or programmers do writing work on the side to supplement their income in between design jobs.

Because writing has a fairly low barrier to entry, it’s also highly competitive and doesn’t pay as much as some other types of freelancing. A simple article can pay as low as $1.50, but more complex jobs, especially if they need to be very high in quality, can pay significantly more.

There are many different types of writing you can do as a freelancer. For example:

•Blog posts and articles
•Short reports
•Non-fiction e-books
•Fiction (books, stories, poetry, etc.)

Different types of work pay different amounts, but technical writing and fiction writing (such as ghostwriting romance books for authors) can pay quite a lot.


Design requires a little bit more technical ability than writing, but if you have the aptitude for it and the experience, you can make good money doing all types of freelance graphic work.

At the basic end of the design spectrum are things like advertising banners and book covers. These require only a graphics program like Photoshop or GIMP, some stock photos, and a decent level of talent.

At the higher end are projects like posters, as well as projects that require some more technical ability like designing websites and user interfaces for apps and programs.

Here are some ideas for the types of graphics you can create:

•Book covers for authors
•Advertising banners
•Posters and flyers
Websites and blogs

If you want to get work as a designer, it’s extremely important to create a good portfolio with examples of what you can do. If you have never done a particular type of work before, create a few examples for your portfolio, even if they are fictional. (For example, create a cover for a book that doesn’t exist, or create your own version of the cover of a popular book.)

You could also offer to do work for people for free in the beginning to build your portfolio, but keep in mind that even if you’re offering free work, some people will want to see what you can do before they commit to working with you so they don’t waste your time and theirs if they end up not liking what you produce.

If you’re a talented artist in any medium, there’s a great opportunity for you to earn money with that talent. Gone are the days when the only way an artist could make money was by selling original paintings. These days, artists have a lot of possibilities for earning!

•Portraits and caricatures
•Other commissions
•Book cover art
•Children’s book illustration
•Art for apps and video games
•T-shirts, posters, and other items to sell
•Prints of artwork (possibly framed for hanging on the wall)

These are just a few ideas of ways you can make money as a freelance artist. There is a nearly endless number of other ways!


If you have a good voice and don’t have a very thick accent of any kind, you might want to consider doing voiceover work.

Voiceover work is simple and requires very little technical knowledge. As long as you can read well, speak clearly, and perform basic computer functions, you can offer your voice for videos, audiobooks, and other projects.

The only things you’ll really need for voiceover work are:

•A decent computer
•Audio processing software
•A good microphone (a must)
•A location good for recording (such as a closet)

Video Editing & Creation

Video editing is a more advanced skill that requires a little more technical knowledge and ability, but if you have the talent for it, you can make very good money creating videos and editing those that other people have created.

Video is quickly taking over text and photos as the media of choice online, and many individuals and companies are using them for a variety of promotional purposes.

Videos can be used for publicity, such as when celebrities post them on Facebook or Instagram. They can be used to promote something specific, such as when a restaurant posts a video of their newest dish and a limited time price promotion. Or they could be used in many other ways to publicize, promote, and sell.

Videos don’t have to be extremely complex. In fact, they don’t necessarily even have to contain any video. They could be just slideshows of photos or graphics with text, music, or voiceovers. Sometimes that format is even more effective than traditional videos.

Other Ideas

There are many other ways you can make money from home or on a freelance basis. Some of them include:

•Keyword research
•Photo editing
•Programming and app creation
•Selling crafts online
•Selling used items online
