With job loss soaring and new stay-at-home orders in many regions, it’s no wonder so many people are looking for ways to make money and stay busy from home. Nothing is more important than society’s collective health, but there are still bills to pay.
Whether you need to make money or you’re simply bored, here are some ways you can create revenue from home.
Print on Demand
If you’re a graphic designer, it’s never been easier to upload your graphics and have them printed on a wide range of products. Even if you’re not a designer, there are platforms with auto generators that make it easy to create images you and your audience will love.
Dropshipping with t-shirt printing and fulfillment services in Canada makes this a Green business with straightforward logistical issues. Besides clothing, you can produce and sell your own mugs, tote bags, and lots more.
Anyone can adopt this model, but it’s very well suited to artists and writers with merchandise to sell.
Re-Selling Old Belongings
Do you have old belongings that can fetch a high price? Sometimes old unwanted things suddenly become trendy or desirable among collectors.
Obviously, things like gold jewellery or designer handbags will always be desirable, but it’s possible that things you bought for cheap command a high price. Second-hand clothes, collectibles like baseball cards or movie memorabilia, and more can net you some fast cash.
Just be sure to represent whatever you’re selling accurately, especially its condition. However, you can make it look photogenic in pictures and write a blurb that you think will help it sell.
Before a website goes public, oftentimes, they need people to test it for bugs and usability. Website designers need to know that everything works as it should and that it excels from a UX perspective.
You don’t need any technical expertise to be a reviewer, find a credible website looking for testers, and you can make some decent money without leaving your couch.
Offer Lessons or Services
Do you have a marketable skill that people could use right now? Maybe you can conduct lessons for a musical instrument you play, or teach a foreign language you speak.
There are services people could use right now which you can do from home. Things like translating, editing (written content, video, or photography), and more are all perfectly safe and still in demand.
It may be good to price your services on a sliding scale. You need to think about your own finances, but being amenable to the hardships others may be experiencing right now is a thoughtful thing to do. Consider it on a case-by-case basis.
Protecting our collective health is the overall goal, but we all need to look after ourselves, too. Keep these safe ways to make money from home in mind, and you’ll be more productive and less bored while waiting for life to return to normal.
