Learning new skills is one way to open income-generating opportunities and earn more on the side. Fortunately, people are no longer limited to taking classes in a formal setting – the internet is a great place to start looking for resources to learn the basics of almost any skill.

Insanely profitable skills you can learn online

You can simply search online and find a variety of resources, such as video tutorials and free courses, to start learning important skills.

The five skills below may open more opportunities to earn or get a pay increase.

  1. Foreign language

    Learning a new language may seem difficult or even unnecessary in your pursuit for increased income, but it’s actually a great way to open opportunities for your career.

    You may learn a  foreign language through paid software like Rosetta Stone, but there are also free online resources aimed at helping non-speakers understand the basics.

    You don’t have to be a pro at public speaking or achieve the highest proficiency rating to profit from the language you’re learning.

    Once your proficiency in the language is developed enough to have a proper conversation with potential clients, you may find yourself with more opportunities to further your career.

    For instance, you may take up a side hustle to translate documents or serve as a translator in events.

  2. Graphic design

    Having a sense for design usually comes naturally to most designers, but this doesn’t mean you can’t be a designer if your design sense isn’t innate.

    If you have the interest and time for it, you can develop your design skills by learning how to use the tools of the trade (i.e. equipment and software).

    There are books you can read to learn the basic concepts, but you may also learn through video tutorials for hands-on learning.

  3. Search engine optimisation

    Data analytics can help websites attract more visitors by getting the search engine artificial intelligence (AI) to consider it as relevant.

    Learning data analytics or search engine optimisation (SEO) can help you understand where a website’s traffic is coming from, what attracts visitors and what they dislike. Knowing these can help you create a strategy to address issues and attract more visitors.

    Many companies pay to get their analytics and SEO done for them, and this opens opportunities for you either in your current company or as a side hustle.
  4. Social media marketing

    Social media sites have become a great marketing platform, which is why more companies are looking for people who are skilled at inbound marketing through these platforms.

  5. Coding

    Learning how to code may also open up a variety of opportunities for you, whether as a career path or a side hustle.

    There are many things that require coding skills, and games, applications, programs and plug-ins are only some of those. You may even make your content interactive with a few lines of code.

    The best part is that you may earn a lot with your coding skills. Local and foreign businesses and organisations are willing to pay developers to code their websites.

    Likewise, you may choose to create or develop your own products and sell them online.

Advances in technology and connectivity have made it easier for even local small and medium enterprises to expand their business to new markets.

There are a lot of skills you can learn online that can give you more opportunities to earn extra income. You only need to decide on what you want to learn and search for resources that can help you develop or improve your skills.
