I discovered a weird job application trick that DOUBLED my response rate - Remotise - 016
Show notes: Remotise.com/016 I just finished my project with DigitalNomad.com and I’m on the next job hunt. If this were to happen to me 5 years ago, I would be sweating bullets and maybe even crying myself to sleep at night. If I lost my job, I would be panicking to take anything that would barely keep me afloat, even if I hated it. I felt like I was in no position to negotiate salary, no position to look for new opportunities, or no position to have many options to choose from. But fast forward to now, I’m actually super excited and pumped for the next gig. Last year, I stumbled on a cool way to apply to jobs that lead me to be able to work from anywhere in the world and travel like a mofo. I’m blessed that I took the steps to make this my reality and I want to tell you how I did it so you can take this same process to increase your job application response rate to more than DOUBLE.

My $45,000/year ‘Plan B’ Should Be Your ‘Plan A’ (NO Experience Required) - Remotise - 015

And yet, it’s my plan B. I think it’s important to have a contingency plan, especially when you’re traveling and living abroad like I am. If your plan A is to be part of a future proof industry that no one talks about but is in high-demand and NOT taught in colleges… Then join my FREE 6-week digital marketing job training: https://remotise.com/futureproof

What it REALLY Takes to be a Successful Virtual Assistant - Remotise - 013
Show notes: https://remotise.com/013 It sucks, but finding a virtual assistant (VA) job is getting harder. Let me be specific, any basic data entry VA job is getting harder to find. Why? Because just like any industry, there will always be a more affordable option. Someone else in a developing country with the same technology as you can do that job for cheap. Straight up. So how do you compete? Just like everybody else... You have to specialize in an in-demand skill. Unless you don't mind being an expat and living in a new country as an English teacher (which is a great option and I actually encourage it if you want to travel and make money right away). But if you want to find those legit 'work-from-anywhere' jobs, you need a skill to support it. In today's episode, Phillip Huynh, owner of Creative Hippo, gives us the no-bullshit truth on how to get hired as a virtual assistant.

How an Ex-Marine Turned Copywriter makes $40/Hour, Remotely - Remotise - 011
Show notes: Remotise.com/011 Did you know that copywriters make an average of $71K USD a year? A remote copywriter makes less than that, about $50K USD a year. That’s really good money if you’re living overseas in Southeast Asia but forget it if you’re trying to live in a major city anywhere else in the world. Or is it? In today’s episode I have Daniel Vu, an ex-marine turned copywriter who makes $40/hour remotely which is more than 76,000 a month, more than the US national average. He lives in sunny San Diego, with a quick google search, the median household income to live in SD is $64,000 USD. It’s not like San Francisco where the median is in the $90,000+ USD, but it still doesn’t make it a cheap city.
