Updated on: by Amy Kennedy

Flexible Non Phone Jobs- Q/AThe questions I receive are often like the following email. People are needing to manage a way to work from home while the family life is still actively happening around them. Even though there is a lot of competition with others in the same situation, there are still many available opportunities.

I am a stay at home mom, that has a question that maybe you can point me in a good direction. As I said I am a stay at home mom, my youngest won’t be going to school for 2 more years, my husband is a disabled veteran and not able to work plus he is going to school. We don’t have a huge amount of income coming in and I want to start working from home. The problem is that I have background noise and am not able to take phone calls. I have experience in customer service and I’m looking for jobs that will make a good income to support our household and also has flexible hours or not on a set scheduled time.

What jobs would be the best to apply for that will work with the situation I am in?

Thanks for reading my story and hope you have some good advice.


I understand you need to find work you can do from home that doesn’t involve the phone and provides flexible scheduling.
Currently, my top two suggestions would be:
Talk2Rep for chat based customer support.
It pays around a base of $9/hr and I think there is potential for commission- I believe most of the jobs are for AT&T Support/Sales. I’ve heard the flexibility is great.
There is also Search Engine Evaluating– which can be a tough job but pays around $12-15/hour. Unfortunately it only pays once a month. However, the job is one of those where you simply login and work whenever you have the time- provided there is work available.

Here are more links I suggest:

  1. Talk2Rep Career Page
  2. Search Engine Evaluating Comparisons
  3. Work at Home Ideas for Moms
  4. Appen
  5. Lionbridge
  6. Textbroker
  7. Upwork
  8. Fiverr
  9. Freelancer
  10. Rev
  11. UserTesting
  12. iWriter
  13. Craigslist
  14. Amazon Mechanical Turk
  15. Clickworker
I hope this helps get you started in the right direction.

Thx for this! These tips are also helpful for those, like me, who are Deaf and find it challenging to find jobs not requiring hearing 🙂

Hi, I currently contract with Arise Virtual Solutions, I am my own Independent Business Owner (Sharp Communications). I have been with them for almost 5 years. I currently maintain 2 clients, one is customer service/sales via phone for a well known office supply store and the other is website chat support for a well known theme park. I’ve been doing the chat support since January and I really like it. The client offers do fill quickly and often rotate. There has been a regular chat support position for a well known phone company also.

I also do seasonal data entry for Great American Opportunities. I actually found that offer on this board, it took a while to hear back from them but once you get in, you stay in unless you don’t want to work seasonally. You do data entry for school fund raisers which are scanned and sent to your home computer for you to enter. It’s paid per form and you do have to take a test on accuracy to verify you meet the needs of the company.

I hope this helps and if you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected].

I recently became an Online Personal Stylist with Keaton Row. Everything is done completely online. They give you your own personal Keaton Row website. You have a searchable catalog of over 5,000 items from retailors such as nordstrms and topshop. You chose pieces to make outfits that you put into lookbooks. You find clients on your own. Advertise, hand out business cards, social media. Clients contact you through email with their style preferences, sizes and budget. You take that info and prepare a personalized lookbook just for them and email it. If they make a purchase through a lookbook sent through email or a look featured on your site you receive commission. Sell $350 in one month and be included in the client matching pool through the main Keaton Row website. Prices are exactly the same on Keaton Row as on the retailor sites in real time. Shipping is always free and most returns are free. There are several successful stylists that had no prior styling experience. And best of all you pay nothing ever.

If this sounds like something you may be interested in or if you have any questions email me at [email protected] and I would be happy to help you.
