9 jobs you can do entirely on your phone

Smartphones have redefined what it means to work from home.

As working remotely becomes more and more common, technology is
allowing workers to break away from the traditional
work-from-home setup
— a home office with a computer on the
desk and a phone and notepad close at hand.

Many jobs these days don’t require a dedicated workspace or even
a computer. In fact, it’s entirely possible to make money with your
smartphone as your only resource.

And when paired with a reliable vehicle, a willingness to log
miles on foot, or an appreciable technical or linguistic skill, a
smartphone job can present full-time employment. 

Here are 9 jobs you can do using your smartphone and little (or
nothing) else.

things the average person can flip for a profit

Tech support

If you have expertise with various types of software or
hardware, you can get a job as a technical support expert with just
a phone (though a computer might help). Glassdoor estimates the
average base pay for
remote tech support workers at about $35,800
, a living wage if
you live in many smaller US cities or towns or in a rural
location.

Language tutor

There are several programs that you can use to connect to people
trying to learn a foreign language, and in most cases, the only
skill you need is a solid command of your own native tongue. A
native English speaker with a smartphone can use a program like
NiceTalk to make about $10 an
hour. Not a killing, but easy enough work that you can do from the
sofa or bed.

App tester

You’re already sitting there using your phone all day, right? So
why not use it to test new apps and consult with their developers,
helping streamline the software and earning some cash? You can
use a platform like AppNana to
become a smartphone app tester and earn gift cards, free software,
and more.

Rideshare driver

If you have a reliable car and a reliable phone, you can make a
living wage driving for Uber or Lyft.

Annual income for a rideshare driver is far less than the
$90,000 Uber
once claimed
its median driver made — a yearly
take-home of just over $36,500
is closer to the real average
for such work. All you need is a car, a phone, and a relatively
clean driving record.

Task taker

With apps like TaskRabbit or
Gigwalk, you can
use your smartphone to find mini jobs in your area that pay as
little as five bucks all the way up to $100 and beyond, and that
can almost always be completed in just a few hours at most. From
picking up groceries to building Ikea furniture to moving couches,
enough little gigs strung together can approximate a full-time
job.

Social media influencer

You don’t have to be a famous actor or a reality TV star or
willing to take hundreds of semi-scandalous selfies in order to
convince companies to pay for your services as an influencer.

In fact,
increasingly brands are turning away from mega influencers
with
tens or hundreds of thousands of followers and reaching out to
“micro-influencers” and “nano-influencers” who may have only a
hundred or so followers, but who garner the complete trust of their
social (media) circle.

Adult phone operator

Yes, strange as it might sound in the internet days, there are
still lots of people dialing sex phone operators looking to get
their kicks via live conversation. And if you can get over the
cringe-worthiness of most of the calls you’ll field,
you can make about $35 an hour
with experience and practice.
Just keep in mind the hours mostly come later at night and probably
won’t be consistent.

Market research

If you don’t find the prospect of cold-calling too odious, you
can make at least your state’s minimum wage
by conducting market research calls
for all sorts of different
industries. From conducting surveys on everything from products to
politics, you can make a bit of cash, hundreds of abrupt hang-ups
notwithstanding.

Survey taker

Taking online surveys isn’t going to get you into the next tax
bracket, but it’s easy work you can do in your off time from your
regular job (or family duties) and all you need is a smartphone to
do it. Sites like InboxDollars
offer paid survey opportunities as well as little payments for
things like watching videos or playing games.
