- Rev.com is a company that provides transcription, translation, and captioning services. Of course, with the help of freelancers work from home freelancers. I found out about Rev.com on the TikTok app. I was actually surprised that I could find such kind of contents on that app, but I am grateful that I have. I tried applying for the captioner test on January 2021. After three months, and after almost forgetting about it, I received their acceptance e-mail by April 2021. I didn’t think much about it because they were only paying cents per minute of video. Also, I was in no rush for a job.
My acceptance email:
And so I dove in. I started as a rookie at Rev. Job availability is limited and is always scarce when you are a rookie. I had to sit in front of my laptop just waiting for a new job to pop up. I had to work until 3:00AM just to finish a project and earn a substantial income. I started earning $20 on my first three days. After three days, I finally graduated into a Revver!
My promotion to Revver:
Being a Revver is like being an official part of the Rev Team. I now have access to all the projects available. I no longer had to compete for one project. I realized that I can be able to make $40 a day when I became a Revver. And then that turned to $60. By the end of the week, I was able to make approximately $300. It’s pretty low to some but it’s an office job’s equivalent pay rate when exchanged in Philippine currency. Even way higher. I didn’t thought that I could earn this much. You can see my payment proof here in my recent vlog:
My first four weeks with Rev:
Not only was I able to earn extra income, I also regained my self-worth. Being a full-time mom and housewife had a really huge impact on my mental well-being. My importance was measured on how much I can manage the household. In addition, my duty of taking care of my son and husband. All while being limited to pursue what I want for myself because of time constraints. Along with this, I was unable to splurge on the things that I want because I always had to ask my husband for permission. I was able to work while looking after my son by being a freelancer at Rev. More importantly, I was also able to make my own money. Finally, I can spend without feeling guilty or ashamed. This is because I know I earned it!

I am happy that I found Rev. Most importantly, that I found freelancing. It is still a job, and it’s not easy. But because of the pay and the amount of time I am left with to spend for more important things, it makes it a worthwhile venture. Will you try to apply? Right now, Rev applications is only open to:
