Legitimate Ways to Earn Money at Home During Lock-Down

Research shows that unemployment has sky rocketed because of Corona virus. With that in mind am gonna share some business ideas which you can use to start a business in these trying time. One thing i will discourage is using these hard times to take advantage of people. Be businesses minded and creative but do not take advantage of other people’s misfortune. There is a difference in taking advantage of an opportunity and taking advantage of people. I personally think a business is helping people and getting paid for that.

Creating internet content

Since people are stuck in their homes day and night, this means that people are likely to spent more time on the internet than they did before the lock-down. You can take this advantage of this by creating homemade video and posting them on YouTube. I believe that no one is useless in this world, every human being is good at something. So you can make videos of things you like be it Cooking tutorials, Poetry, Singing, Comedy, Entertainment News etc. I know people who changed their lives completely by creating content on the internet especially YouTube. Many actors landed acting roles by exposing their talent on YouTube.

Freelance writer

No matter where you’re from or what you do for a living, thanks to the conveniences afforded to us by the internet, making money is no longer a constant and never-ending struggle. With the proverbial world at our fingertips, as long as you know how to tap into the vast amount of opportunities found in the digital ether of cyberspace, you can earn some extra income, even if you’re in a tight bind. Sites like Fivre, Swagcucks and Responded are there for you to find writing and transcripting jobs on the internet. Most of these companies do not require payment for you to open an account.

Online tutor

This might be the most profitable compared to all ideas i mentioned. You can tutor people over Skype, no matter where you might live. This is great, especially if you’re a digital nomad and you’re looking to earn more money than the local job market can potentially provide. If you know any foreign language like Spanish, French, Dutch you will have an added advantage. You can register to be an English tutor on sites like Skyeng, iTuttor, Cambly just to mention a few

Drop Shipping

This is basically creating something out of nothing. You don’t need any capital to do this. Drop shipping is a supply chain management method in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock but instead transfers its customer’s orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer, another retailer, or a wholesaler, who then ships the goods directly to the customer.

Health and Fitness

People are home, they are eating junk food so If you are a body builder you can help them by starting a fitness program and stream it live online. This is likely to work even after the pandemic. That’s fitness and nutrition and that will work because there are people who are desperate to get their fitness on point and they are looking for a personal trainer.

Paid Surveys

paid or incentive survey is a type of statistical survey where the participants/members are rewarded through an incentive program, generally entry into a sweepstakes program or a small cash reward, for completing one or more surveys. When a research company needs respondents from a demographic they cannot reach they can easily reach out to a worldwide or speciality panel. By offering a cash incentive to respondents in return for feedback these companies are able to quickly fill quotas and collect the information being sought by the client. You just need to be careful and tell the different between those which are legit and those which are scams
