SMM is social media marketing. Now social networks occupy a leading position in terms of the amount of traffic on the Internet. The most popular are Instagram and Tik-Tok.
But an SMM specialist can work with Facebook in the same way. The main advantage of the profession is that there is a monthly subscription fee from clients.
Payment is not going one-time for a project, and monthly from one customer. Many SMM specialists run several companies and earn thousands of dollars.
Millions of sites on the Internet need specialists who can write competently and sell with text. There are usually more women among copywriters, but men are not uncommon.
3. Personal assistant
On the Internet, there is a leader behind every site. He has a lot of things to do and therefore needs to free up time.
A personal assistant is a specialist who takes care of everything. If a person is guided in programs, knows how to quickly search for information, completes tasks, then this Internet profession suits him.
The specialist must have a serious level of trust. Usually, people who have worked in the company come to this position. But not always.
Often, entrepreneurs are looking for remote assistants through online ads. Not the most monetary profession on the internet, but it’s the most common.
4. Online School Administrator
In recent years, many different online courses have appeared, and in general, the market for information products is becoming larger and larger. This provides new opportunities.
The profession appeared last year and has not yet become too popular. But it is already in great demand, because a lot of people create courses and want to sell them, but do not have the necessary technical knowledge.
An online school administrator is a person who knows how to work with various services. He is responsible for ensuring that the online school is as automated as possible and brings good money for the client.
Advanced version – Info Producer. It is an administrator and a marketer rolled into one. He is not only responsible for the technical side, but also promotes expert advertising, organizes sales.

6. Video-maker or video editing specialist
This is a person who knows how to coolly create a video, highlight meanings, and works with a picture. You don’t have to be a cameraman and shoot weddings to make money. It is enough to have a laptop and be able to work with video editing programs.
Youtube takes a leading position in content creation. People who know how to work with video are becoming in demand. The profession is quite creative and interesting.
Here you can earn in different ways:
- create banners and flyers;

Again, it is best to focus on one thing. The higher the expertise in a particular area, for example, in logos and corporate identity, the more expensive services are sold.
Colors, shapes, fonts, animations, other elements, and their combination, ease of use of a website or an application are the business of a web designer. This is another in-demand internet profession on my list.
8. Web analyst
Web analytics is one of the stages of Internet marketing aimed at collecting and processing information about the target audience of a website, application, or social media account.
Based on this data, recommendations are developed to improve the effectiveness of all Internet marketing channels: SMM, SMO, SEO, PPC, Targeted Ads, and others.
Often, web analytics is done by an Internet marketer or a narrow specialist on a specific traffic source, but in large companies, whole departments are responsible for analytics. My blog has a detailed description of the web analytics profession.

According to forecasts, by 2020 the market for VR devices will be estimated at 40 billion dollars, and by 2026 millions of people will start “hovering” for hours in the virtual reality of the new order, working or studying. A virtual habitat designer will design these worlds, creating suitable environments for business meetings or, say, VR museums.
Just imagine a typical day in the office of the future, when employees meet in a hyper-realistic virtual space, discussing ideas with colleagues from around the world. And their projects may well be, for example, a model of a Premier League football stadium, in which gamers transform into their favorite players, or a digital copy of a UNESCO heritage site, created to preserve the original.
The first steps in this area have already been taken. For example, Deakin University in Australia is partnering with software developers to train the first graduates in virtual and augmented reality.
11. Roboethics lawyer
Required areas of expertise: communication, philosophy, ethics.
Experts believe that the next decade will be the era of robots: they will begin to help people in literally everything and will be able to occupy both the positions of personal assistants and positions in the support service.
Therefore, the number of vacancies in the production of “smart machines” will increase: it is expected that by 2018 in the UK * there will be about 55.8 thousand new jobs related to this area. A robotics lawyer will act as an intermediary between humans, robots, and artificial intelligence, establishing the moral and ethical laws by which machines will work among living things.
These predictions are confirmed by an engineer from the University of California at Berkeley, Alexander Reben, who invented a robot capable of intentionally hurting a person.
“I have proved that a ‘harmful’ robot can exist. Therefore, in the future, we will need people who can resist our fears that one-day artificial intelligence will spiral out of control, ”says Reuben.
12. Digital culture commentator
Required areas of expertise: art history, business, PR, and marketing.
In 10 years, visual communication will dominate social media and media. This confirms Instagram’s growth, which is projected to reach 15% by the end of 2016. Those who master the figurative language of the digital sphere will become very popular specialists who can integrate digital culture into the traditional one.
The place of application of their skills is enterprises and institutions in the sphere of culture and art. Frances Morris, director of the Tate Contemporary Gallery, is confident that such professionals will bring them a good income.
“Digital commentators will help future audiences understand the world’s artistic heritage of the past centuries in the most accessible form – using modern technology,” explains Morris.
13. Freelance biohacker
Required Knowledge Areas: Biological Sciences, Medical Methodology, Data Analysis.
For a long time, science was occupied by professional scientists working in universities and research departments of companies. But Microsoft says open-source platforms are helping to democratize the academic community and increase the number of biohackers (amateur molecular biology enthusiasts – Ed.).
With open-source tools, thousands of scientists around the world are already working to find treatments for depression, autism, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s disease. Teams of virtual biohackers on freelance will actively help them in this, experts of the company are sure.
The same is said by Dr. Darren Nesbet, a synthetic biologist at University College London. He believes that the work of biohackers will be of great help in large-scale research.
The advantage of freelancers over full-time researchers at universities and institutes is that they can brainstorm without the distraction of teaching and writing articles, and therefore be more flexible.
