The reason I consider content writing to be the best online job in the new year is because the world is moving online and a lot of businesses have now understood the importance of Internet and as a result they are bringing their business online.

SEO or Search Engine Optimization is one of the most important task and the people who are good at it tend to make a lot of money by ranking their own sites or taking up clients and helping them to rank their sites.
If you have extensive knowledge on how the search engines work and the changes in their algorithm and you can easily manipulate the rankings then you will be able to find a lot of clients who are willing to spend a lot of money to get their sites ranked.

Copywriting is the job where you have to create compelling sales copy so that the people who land on the product site reads the sales copy and should be impressed enough to make a purchase of the product.
Copywriters are in great demand online because one of the biggest earning model online is to create your own products and then sell it to other people. And this is where copywriters come in! To sell a product, you need to have a perfect pitch, a perfect video sales letter and the sales copy should highlight the importance of the product and make the readers feel that they need the product so that they will end up making a purchase.
As far as I know, a copywriter earns more than $500-$1000 per sales copy and if you are good at copywriting then I would say you put your talents to good use.
4. Mobile App Developer
Mobile app business is one of the most profitable business and there is a huge demand of people who can develop applications without bugs. The mobile market is growing and every now and then a new device is launched in the market thus forcing the mobile app owners to update their apps for them to work on these newly launched devices.
Not all the mobile app owners create applications on their own. They hire a professional app developer or a whole team of developers to do this task. And if you think that once you have completed developing the application, you will get paid and your work is done then you are wrong because if the application goes on to become successful then it would be up to you to keep on adding new features and release updates on a regular basis and you will get paid regularly.
Other than that, you can even create your very own mobile application or game and by implementing the various app monetization platforms, you can start making a passive income online.
5. PHP Developer
PHP is one of the most important programming languages and if you want to learn a programming language that will help you out a lot in the future then PHP is the one to go with.
Most of websites on the Internet and software, tools and plugins all use PHP codes and commands. WordPress, the biggest content management system on the Internet powering majority of the websites, is built on PHP and all its plugins also use PHP codes to run. So if you are an expert in PHP programming then you can make it as your career and earn a great income online.
6. PPC Specialist
As I said in the above points, that many businesses are not moving online so to increase their sales and to attract more clients they will be doing a lot of advertising work.
And when it comes to advertising, then PPC advertising is considered to be the best one. Since Google allows you to place your ads on the search engines, you can expect to get a lot of potential customers to your business or product/service site using the advertisements. Plus if you are a specialist who can bring in a good ROI then you can accept clients that will pay you hundreds of thousands of dollars for your advice and expertise in advertising their products online.
7. Graphics Designer
Graphic Designing means that you should have an amazing knowledge of tools like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Corel Draw and InDesign and a creative mind to come up with unique designs.

Everyone needs graphics.
