In a split second, it seems that many have found that having to go to the office daily has become a thing of the past. For someone like me, it’s HALLELUJAH! I have always wanted to work from home and that’s the truth.
In the present day of Covid-19 many have lost their jobs and don’t know where to turn to or what to do because guess what? the bills haven’t stopped flowing. So this article is just to shed some light on the many opportunities/ work-from-home jobs which we may have overlooked in the past as we hustled and bustled to and fro the office in the recent past.
- Baker/Caterer/Chef: Do you know how to bake or cook and love it? do your friends/family compliment you every time you make a dish? Maybe it’s time to turn this passion into a business.
- Affiliate Marketer: You see those many links you find on websites you visit from time to time, the links you click with enthusiasm? They are affiliate links. It is called referral marketing because the person whose link they are is referring you to a product/company. When you click the link or order the product they receive a commission. It’s that easy. You could do it. I am an affiliate to Amazon and that’s why I’ve got the Amazon logo up on my website. When a person orders via the Amazon logo on my site I get paid.
- Blogger: A blogger is basically someone who writes about their passion/interest. It’s quite inexpensive and easy to start and before you know it, you could be earning from it. It does take time to kick off but if you have good content and write consistently, you will gain visitors to your blog and a good change to your life.
- Child Caregiver: Have you ever had to look after your sibling or another child? Do you have children? Maybe you haven’t given it much thought, but if you love children you could take this on for part of the day if not for the whole day. You could do this but please make sure that you have the appropriate permits in place. There is a lot going on out there as regards children, and every government wants to make sure that children are not placed in the hands of the wrong people to care for them. They are known to come down strongly on persons without the necessary requirements in place.
- Consulting: If you have specialist knowledge in an area, e.g as a lawyer, accountant, nurse then you are in the position to give advice to persons or organisations for a fee.
- Customer Service Representative/Virtual Assistants: Many organisations, thanks to covid -19 have suddenly woken up to the fact that they do not really need an office to operate their business. Such organisations now have their Customer Service reps working from their individual homes. The same goes for a virtual Assistant or Administrator. Do you possess excellent communication and office skills? You may want to explore this area.
- Data Entry: If you enjoy inputting data into spreadsheets or forms then here’s a job for you. Many organisations, especially in these times, are looking for persons to do their data entry. Why not jump on the bus?
- Editing and Proofreading: Many years ago, I took on a course in editing and proofreading. From time to time I take on work as a proofreader and I choose whether to get paid or not for it. The downside for me though is I’m not always interested in the content brought to me.
- Youtuber: People are making a ton of money these days just by putting out educative/inspiring videos in the area of their interest/passion. You sign up to youtube’s partner program then build up your subscribers through good content and engagement. Once again I must warn you that it may take a while, but with diligence and consistency, you can start making money from the views received or ads placed by Adsense when your video is shown. See my youtube link below.
- Instructor: Are you good at driving? Are you passionate about making the right choices when it comes to food or exercise? Are you good at playing the piano or other musical instrument? There are people out there who want to know what you know and are willing to pay you to share your knowledge with them.
