As a freelancer or entrepreneur, you will probably always be looking for ways you can widen your skill set so that you can take on more work and projects. Even if you think you are already using your whole set of skills and knowledge, you might think that there are no other ways you can widen the services that you offer to potential clients. 

Thankfully, though, that won’t be the case as there are always ways you can continue to learn new job skills allowing you to add even more strings to your bow. 

Looking to boost your workload or career? If so, then the following services are easy to learn. Before you know it, your clients will be booking you for these services before you know it!

Content Writing 

Content marketing is big news for companies these days. Blogs and SEO content is now key for companies to rise to the top of Google search results, which can greatly help companies increase their customer base. As businesses are now continually looking to update their blog with new posts, they regularly advertise for content writers to supply them with content. 

It’s not too difficult improving your writing skills so that they are good enough for you to become a content writer. There are lots of online courses that teach you the basics of SEO, and you might also find it useful to take a writing course. 

Electrical Skills 

If you currently sit in front of your computer all day for most of your work, you might prefer to add a more hands-on skill to your repertoire. So, how about brushing up on your electrical skills? That way, you can start to carry out small handyman type jobs for people in your local area. These skills can be very valuable in a wide variety of work environments. 

It's not as simple as just watching a few YouTube tutorials though. You will have to take a course to get the qualifications needed, and you can find electrical engineering course requirements online. If you enjoy working with electronics, you might even want to turn this into your main freelance venture! 


If you are educated to degree level, you can always start tutoring in your major. This is an easy way to pick up some extra cash after work in the evenings or at weekends. You don’t need any specific qualifications to become a tutor, just the degree should be enough, but you might want to take a specific tutoring course just so you look more attractive compared to other tutors in your local region. 

Graphic Design 

There are heaps of courses that can teach you a thing or two about graphic design. If you already have some experience from designing your own website, then you already have a head start! Once you get quite skilled in graphic design, you can start to add it to your list of services on your website. After you’ve worked for a few clients, you can start to compile a portfolio of all your design work to start attracting the attention of more potential clients. 

Become Better At Business

As you can see, you don’t just have to stick to one profession while you are a freelancer or entrepreneur. There are many strings that are very easy to add to your bow!
