od communication skills-1You might have noticed that more and more people are shunning the daily grind of working from 9-5 to make their living online.

You too can wave goodbye to the daily grind and start a new career online, especially if you have excellent communication skills.

Here are just a few of the ways you can use your communication skills to excel online:

Become a Blogger

Blogging can be a very lucrative way to make money online, and once you’re established, it takes very little time to maintain a blog. If you are a good communicator with a lot of ideas and opinions to share, and you are able to translate your thoughts into the written word in an engaging way, there is no reason why you could not succeed in creating blog that gets lots of views, and you can then utilize various means, including advertising and affiliate links to translate those views into a decent monthly income.

Copy writing

Good communication skiIf you don’t want to risk setting up and working on a blog with no guarantee that you will make any money from it, in the end, you could try copy-writing instead. Obviously, because the internet relies, to a large extent on the written word, there are endless opportunities to find work as a writer for hire.

Most of these positions will be freelance, although some will be staff positions. All you have to do to find new opportunities is to check out popular freelance websites like People Per Hour and Elance, bid for jobs and get writing.

Many people who are good communicators have been able to give up their day jobs and create the perfect work-life balance by setting themselves up as freelance writers, and there’s no reason why you can’t do the same, especially if you have completed a college course in English Language, creative writing or similar.

Life Coaching

Life coaching online is another way of making money that can be quite lucrative if you’re good at it. If you have ever completed a strategic leadership program, trained in psychology or you have exceptional motivational skills, and you’re a good communicator, this could be the one for you because being a life coach is all about communication, leadership and helping people to make their own lives better. You need to be able to take an honest look at their lives and determine what’s going wrong. If you can identify their negative patterns and find a way of communicating their issues to them firmly, but gently, you’ll help them to change their lives, and the clients will roll right in.

Transcribing

Did you know that transcribing is one of America’s fastest growing jobs? The demand for people who can listen to the spoken word and transcribe it into accurate text has never been higher, and more often than not, these kinds of roles can be carried out online, which means that you can streamline your working life to meet your needs.
