Covid19 lockdown may have cost you the job, but don't worry, we have the solutions for you to work from home.

7 Ways You Can Make Money From Home

We are halfway through 2020, and the Covid19 Pandemic is still not over yet. Many people struggle to make ends meet or they have just been laid off work recently because the businesses they work for have shut down.

You must be dreaming of working from home, at your own desk, at your own pace, at your own time, 6 months ago. Now it is no longer a dream, it is your destiny. Maybe you already know what to do, but you just need a little push and affirmation to encourage yourself to follow your instinct.

Way to make money from home by Socialectric Web Design

Here are 7 ways you can absolutely make money online, from home:

1. Blogging

It sounds old but it is still very relevant to this day. People love reading blogs as it is something they are also passionate about and they want to be able to feel it through the words you wrote in your blog. How do you make money with it? Adsense, of course!

You can sign up for Google Adsense to receive a code that will be installed onto the website. This means you give Google permission to run ads on your website. Your visitors enjoy your blog, and you will receive a passive stream of income when they click on the ads that you let Google displays on your blog posts. The installation is super simple. Google has all the tutorial you ever need to successfully install the code onto your website.

2. Affiliate Marketing

With affiliate marketing, you will partner up with brands and businesses and present their products on your website. Essentially, you can make a relevant blog posts about travelling, then add a paragraph mentioning the new Nike shoes that people must have if they go hiking somewhere.

When someone makes a purchase with your discount code, your visitors get a certain % Off and you also receive a commission based on the sale you just made. What are you waiting for? Look for a new local brand that accept affiliate marketing, or give them an offer saying that you have a blog posts with daily traffic of 500 or more. You will be surprised what they will tell you.

3. Consulting

You were working as a software developer, but the company went bankrupt because the economy is bad. No worries! Your skill is still their with you. What you can do now is to go around your local town and offer people consultation about how to install their computer correctly. You can even setup a business to consult people anything that is tech related, especially coding.

If you think your field is unique and in demand, consulting is the best way to go. In the end, if people like your advice but they do not have the time to learn more and solve it, you can step out and offer them your skills. Not only you get the consultation fee, you also get to do the work yourself.

4. Online Courses

Do you have the voice and the video editing skill? Making an online course is popular than ever. You can become a teacher from home. We are living in a extremely fast-pace environment where you have to learn new skills constantly to keep up.

Are you good at editing images/video? You can record yourself and put them on your website. People can learn at anytime they want, and you do not have to talk about the same things over and over again to every single person in the room. It is a very scalable business model.

5. YouTube

We guess you saw this coming. Indeed, YouTube is one of the fastest growing platform for everyone who loves watching and making videos. If you don't have your own website, you can try to put your content on YouTube. Make it so valuable that everyone wants to watch it. Your content can be educational or entertaining. There are at least 30 million active users daily on Youtube (2020) and you can be a part of it.

YouTube pays the creators around $3 - $7 per 1000 views. Make sure you conform with their platform policy so you do not get demonetized.

6. Freelance Copywriter

What if we say copywriting is the number one skill that every business needs? And there is never enough talented people to do this job. If you have a good persuasive writing skill, offer the local company your skill.

You can use copywriting in anywhere such as website, landing page, headlines, lead magnets, newsletter, emails, advertising, and so on. It is a form of marketing and everything you read online is probably written by an experienced copywriter. You can work remotely and easily earning six figures income from just know what words to use and what to write to make people convert.

7. Podcast

Another way to make money online is to make your own podcast channel. You can do this with popular platforms like Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher, and Google Podcast. Have you heard of Joe Rogan Podcast? He made a $100 million deal with Spotify to move all his podcasts from YouTube to Spotify. Spotify's stock grew $5 billion within a day.

Podcast is the latest trend at the moment. We are all busy working, and we never have the time to expand our knowledge. Listening to a podcast may have saved you a lot of time. Why not make your own podcast channel?


Did you notice the pattern? Making money from home tend to be fully online. People are scared of the virus and they withdraw themselves from making the physical interaction to save themselves and their families. We cannot blame them, but rather we should embrace it and create a different virtual experience for them to try out your new business.

You can help you create a website, market it, and help you through the process of taking everything you already have, online! A website is your virtual store where people check-in to see what you have to offer, and to be able to assess their needs without any friction.

Those are all the suggestion that we believe it will be the life saver for you and your family. There is no 100% certainty in anything, but as human, we live and think linearly with a set of goals. Rather being pessimistic about the current situation, you can try at least one of any of the above suggestion, you will thank us later.
