5 Virtual Assistant Jobs For Beginners 2020I am going to share our top 5 online home-based jobs with you that we can apply even for those who don't have the experience, Focusing on the top five online jobs that we can apply even for those without work-from-home experience, these are my top 5 lists.
VIRTUAL ASSISTANT JOBS FOR BEGINNERS
1. WEB RESEARCHING
I'm sure everyone is familiar with it, and anyone who uses the internet can do well with this, so number 1 is Web Research. What is Web research? Web research is also Internet research. It is using web resources based on your needs. For example, how to become a virtual assistant? You can search it on Google, and those resources can provide all the information that you need.
Most clients that hire web researchers may ask you to look for information such as competitor's information or potential clients. They will give you a list of data you need to obtain and other required things. Most of the time, your client may send you the information that he wants you to receive. Typically, information like website links, company name, phone numbers, email address, mailing address, and physical address, after which you sort out the files by using Google Sheets or Google spreadsheet.
Most clients nowadays are currently using Google sheets because they now use Google Drive, and then all you need to do is sort out the files and put it in a folder before submitting it to the client, and that's it. Also, always remember to be versatile.
If you were unable to find information on the web, you must never give up. Sometimes a client may ask you to edit a portion of his website, or he may have other website address or blog. And this is the story of a home-based job. There are times that your kids are calling your attention while you do your work. But anyway, if a client asks you to search for additional information, such as an email address, you may try searching it on Facebook. You can also search for details on Facebook's "About" page for other information that your client needs.
2. Data entry
So what is DATA ENTRY? Data entry or simply Data encoder,there are so many things to do but it is not so complicated. Normally, this job would require you to upload information that you've searched or most of the time it's already been provided by the client. Products like perfume, for example, your client may ask you to upload pictures of the product that he sent, put it on the website, followed by the product description, pricing and other details needed for each item. And just like that, you just need to maintain and update information for accuracy.
There are times that a client may send you images that you need to type or transfer to Google Docs. Based from my experience,
some of my clients are too busy to list down what they have discussed during their meeting so they would send files or images that you need to type and what they're going to do is to send the files and have it transferred to Google docs, sort it through folders before sending it back to the client for approval.
3. ONLINE TUTOR
How does online tutor work? There are a lot of online tutorial companies that are hiring, and even undergraduates can also qualify to work as an online tutor. Of course, you must need to learn how to speak and understand English and it is the only thing required and you are good to go! Of course, some companies provide free training as far as I know.
All you have to do is to search the internet for other requirements that are needed for this job. And aside from English language,
some employers are also looking for a bilingual person who can speak 2 or more languages aside from English such as Japanese, Chinese, Korean language, even Spanish. This is also a plus if you know other languages other than English but if not, you can still check on how to apply for those types of online jobs. Also, an internet speed of up to 2 Mbps, a computer and a working headset is desirable for this job.
They may also require you to download Applications such as Skype or Go-to meeting. They will send you a list of things to get you prepared before you start. For other details on online tutoring, you can search it on Google.
Transcriptionist? What is that? A Transcriptionist's job is to simply transcribe audio or video files that a client may ask you to do. A sharp ear is needed for this job because you may be asked to transcribe files from an audio or video that has a different English accent or other languages. You just need to present it through Word document or Notepad and sort the files before sending it back to the client.

Most clients are now looking for home-based customer service agents.
