Are you not tired of staying at home and doing nothing but chores? Well I am. Whether you’re busy teaching your kids school work or visiting social media for the umpteenth time,here is a list of businesses you can start up to make money from the comfort of your home.
NETWORK MARKETING: There are a lot of network marketing platforms you can become a part of.platforms like Oriflame, Long rich bioscience company, swissgarde(now known as healthgrade) and so on. It only takes a small amount to get started and you get a commission on every sale. How cool is that?
SELLING OF CONSUMER GOODS: It is no news that movement of people through commercial means is currently not allowed owing to the coronavirus pandemic. But if you are involved in the selling of consumer goods or you are planning on going into a business that deals in consumer goods,then you have little or no problem. Many transportation companies still offer transportation services for goods. So getting your goods to customers will not be much of a problem. If you’re confused about products that are likely to sell this season, I suggest edible goods. For example honey,okpa flour,cashew nuts,household items such as soap,detergent, hand sanitizers,cosmetics and so on. If you can make these products yourself, then what are you waiting for? Launch your business! However,if you do not have the necessary skill,you can watch yourself videos on YouTube or browse the internet to see if there is a free or paid online class available. You are likely to find a free class because there are a lot of them going on. Just make sure you have data and a WhatsApp account( this is the social media platform where most of these trainings hold.
TELECOM/VTU BUSINESS: As everyone keeps spending more time on the internet,there are many implications including spending more money on data and airtime in order to keep in touch with friends and family. You can earn from this by starting up a VTU business from home. There are classes online where you can learn about this. And you can earn from recharging even on your own line. Think about it!
DIGITAL MARKETING: While companies’ premises are shut down, most companies have moved online increasing the demand for digital marketers. Digital marketing does not really require so much skill at basic level. If you know how to manage a page on popular social media platforms like facebook or instagram, then you can very well become a digital marketer.this part of digital marketing is called social media marketing. Mind you,digital marketers are everywhere so you must be prepared to make your work stand out should you eventually land a job.you need to also know how to write proposals that will be sent to companies. This will help them assess you and know if you are right for the job. One rule about submitting a proposal is not to just submit a proposal! Makes sense right? Always make sure you follow up but don’t spam. Just an occasional reminder will do until you are told the job is no longer available. If you’re already a digital marketer,then you must step up your game as the market is becoming more competitive and demanding. Now companies only have the online channel to connect with their customers so they will want to make the most out of it.
FREELANCE WRITING: Even if you are an amateur writer,you can still land a job and work from home.basic requirements for freelance writing is high level proficiency in English language or the language you are writing in, originality of your work as plagiarism is not tolerated. There are millions of freelancers all over the world so you must dig deep and be consistent in order to get a job. Go for it!
All in all,every business mentioned above can be done on your smartphone making it easier to earn money from home. While we wait for this pandemic to dissipate,stay safe! And keep practicing social distancing.
