Coding is the number one skill in freelancing and good coders are earning north of 100,000 PKR per month with freelancing alone. The only thing you would need for coding is a good computer and a thorough understanding of algorithms.

If you grasp algorithms once, there is no programming language that you can’t learn. Except for the syntax of most programming languages the functions are almost the same. 

If you are already a programmer and not earning through freelancing, this is your chance to do so. With Hirefied, you can get freelance projects of your choice. It also supports escrow and milestone-based payment so that you can get paid for the work done. 

Graphic Designing

Content Writing/Editing

Good content writers are hard to find. If you are a top-notch writer with command over words, and a grasp over thoughts, you can land some amazing writing projects through freelancing. Companies looking for insightful writers are willing to pay as much as 5PKR per word. Imagine how much you can make by writing a 1,000-word piece. Now multiply it with a daily workload of the same word count and you have a steady stream of income. Isn’t that great?

If you want to try your hands on editing others’ content, you can do so with freelancing. Freelance editors can easily earn around 50,000PKR per month for only two to three hours of work every day.

Virtual Assistant/Data Entry

Small business owners are looking to get their work done faster. They hire virtual assistants from Pakistan and other countries to do that. If you are someone who can check and respond to emails, create logs and reports, and manage menial tasks, you can earn 200PKR to 500PKR per hour doing this type of work.

Excited yet? If you learn seller account management for Daraz, Etsy, Amazon, and eBay, you can earn 5000PKR per hour. Isn’t that what you always dreamed of? 

If you are already qualified to become a virtual assistant, numerous freelance virtual assistant projects are waiting for you on Hirefied.

Similarly, if you have only basic knowledge of computers, you can still earn a lot from freelancing. Most companies are looking for permanent data entry specialists for their work.

Both require expertise.
