What's the best skill that can be self taught and then used to reliably make >$1000 a month remotely?

Preferably one that you can use gigwork websites like Upwork to find clients instead of having to network to find them. Thanks

    Fake a resume that makes it look like you're a data science professional i.e. building relationships between large databases, data engineering and visualization - SQL, Python, PowerBI, DAX, etc

    Then use ChatGPT to do all the work for you

        >dumbie level skill piecemeal gigs
        Replaced by pajeets. I can get a fluent english speaker with an "MBA" in Pakistan to maintain my wordpress, do basic graphic design, etc, etc for $5 an hour or less. Online gig economy is global and so wages are "globally competitive" AKA Pakistan-tier.

        Your options to make money on your own online in 2023 are basically drop shipping (dying), affiliate marketing (scam), or lying and using LLMs to do the work you can't do.

        For real, 10 years ago you could make it as a freelance web dev, graphic designer, SEO consultant, etc but those days are over

          That's sort of what I figured. I guess my next choice would be to get a 2 or 4 year degree in something. I was considering IT and trying to get a remote help desk job. Any recommendations on degrees a dumbass could get that would be best suited for getting a digital nomad friendly job?

            >remote help desk job.
            Also taken over by pajeets lol. Even my mid-sized Fortune 2000 has outsourced its entire IT department to a "branch" located in Bangalore.

            Think about what remote jobs can't be done by someone in India for 95% cheaper, or can't be taken over by LLMs in the next 5 years.

            You are left with very few options

              I think smaller companies don't outsource as much. It might be hard but from what I've read it's possible. Help desk could also be a bridge to better jobs that can be done remotely.

              But it's not freelance which seems to be the ideal. I guess it's all over

              What about digital marketing?

                In marketing all the campaign optimization, targeting, management, and analytics work is now low skill and low pay thanks to the proliferation of end-user tools like Google Ads and Google Analytics. The higher paying jobs tend to go people with an analytics background who can use a Google Analytics API to pipe data into PowerBI for visualization, or go to people with a business background who can construct qualitative consumer segments through proprietary market research and do more sophisticated targeting than the online platforms.

                tldr its high skill or low pay like everything else your choice

              There will always be helpdesk/customer service jobs for someone with a North American/British/Aus accent (American being the most desirable) who isn't an idiot.
              Maybe these jobs won't always exist, but AI isn't taking it all over yet. Someone without better options shouldn't turn down something that can sustain you now just because you might need to change jobs in 10 years.
              Not saying this is a great job, but $15/hour is $30K/year, and that's a good living in 80% of the world, probably including wherever OP lives or wants to coom full-time.
              This type of work is first-worlder privilege though. Yeah, it's a shit job by firstie standards, but only a (non-idiot) firstie with the right accent, culture and background has that relative guarantee of employment. The fact they have to move to a developing country to flourish while doing it is... well, let's not get philosophical or political. It is what it is.

                And you can work remote doing this? Where do you get a job like this?

                Programming/IT if the end product is not going to be in English. Indians don't speak Spanish, but people that speak Spanish also need websites.

                They're always looking for experience here and related degree. It's almost impossible to get a start

                The highest paid non-US IT digital nomads I've met have been Russians for this very reason. Its the second most common language on the internet and the Russian-language market for IT services and programming is massive but its impossible to effectively outsource any of it.

              Every company that outsources to India regrets it and eventually moves back their outsourced positions.

            Hyper saturation in dropshipping mean margins are narrowing. Add in the fact that no matter what you do, Shopify or Amazon will get their cut, and you're left with an endeavor that only a tiny percentage of people will make money doing. Further add the reality that global supply chain disruptions in low cost manufacturing are growing more serious by the day, and you're left with dropshipping no longer being a profitable model
