7 Helpful Tools You Need to Know If You Freelance and Work From Home


It is pretty common to see people who freelance and work from home. It may be unconventional but many choose it because of the freedom and flexibility it provides. Moreover, you don’t get stuck in traffic when this is your work setup. Additionally, some people find better-paying jobs this way.

Since it is an unconventional setup, it is sometimes difficult to go through conventionals means to do something. For instance, if you are working from home and you want to apply for a credit card, it might be a little difficult since you have to present certain requirements not readily available unlike if you work in an 8-5 job.

So, we listed here some helpful tools you should know if you choose the WFH setup.

7. Payoneer

For international money transfer, this site has better rates and has a reward system when you use it.

6. Canva

If you need to create graphics for presentation, business cards, social media posts, and more, this is an easy-to-use tool that does not require any Photoshop knowledge.

5. Chikka

Pretty old school but this app still works. It still lets you text people all over the country for free.

4. Zoom

For your webinar needs or when you need to share your screen, this app is downloadable for both iOS and Android.

3. Otranscribe

If you’re transcribing audio files, this app makes the task of listening, pausing, and playing the audio a lot easier. It has a pretty intuitive interface and shortcuts that are easy to use. The spacebar lets you pause and play seamlessly while returning a few seconds so you don’t have to rewind the audio.

2. Pexels

This site and app is a database of copyright-free photos. So if you need stock photos, this is the go-to app.

1. PayMaya

If you need to go shopping but can’t get a credit card, PayMaya has a card and app that works the same way. However, it acts more like a debit card so you have to load it up. No worries in loading because it has many stations including some banks and convenience stores.
