How to Make Money Online During Coronavirus Lockdown
You must have heard the word blogging. For the sake of those who don’t know or haven’t heard about blogging.
Blogging is the act of creating and maintaining content for a blog. This is usually in the form of the written word, but can also include images, videos, or audio.
With blogging, you can make lots of cash while staying at home. But how can you do so?
Well, you can begin blogging by first identifying what type of content you want to write about e.g. Food content, News content, DIY content, health content, etc. Whatever you are good at writing.
The next step is to create your blog site, you can create your blog on any of the following CMS – Blogger (Free), WordPress, Wix, Squarespace etc. Most of the Content Management Systems (CMS) we just highlighted can enable you to create a blog site easily while others might require the help of a web developer.
Once your blog site is ready the next step is to create content on your blog and ensure a lot of people read your blog or drive enough traffic to your blog.
How then can you make money online from blogging?
You can make money online from blogging through Google Adsense, Affiliate, and Pay-to-Blog. Any or all of these options can earn you lots of cash that you might actually quit your job to focus more on it😊
However, your time and dedication are needed when blogging so as to see your reward which is MONEY!
Vlogging which means Video Blogging is a means of blogging not in written content or images but with VIDEO. Where you create video content to showcase to your audiences.
How then can you begin vlogging online from home? You can do so with just your phone camera and a good setting or a good camera if you have one.
You then create content by recording yourself or creating emotional video content.
Once you have created your video content, it’s time to upload and keep uploading it on YouTube, YouTube is a video hosting platform that hosts all kinds of video content.
How then can you make money online from home through vlogging?
You can do so by uploading your video content on the YouTube platform. They pay video creators for their video content by placing adverts on them.
However, before you can begin getting paid by YouTube for your content, you must have at least 1000 people subscribe to your YouTube Channel and have enough people to watch all your new and upcoming videos.
Then you can get paid by YouTube. Just like blogging, you can make lots of cash that you might actually quit your job to focus more on it.
Play Lottery Games
Lottery is a game that involves the draw of random numbers for a prize usually cash prizes.
While staying at home for the lockdown you can play any lottery game and win a cash prize ranging from the Mega Million, Powerball, Euro Million, Lotto9ja, Westernlotto, Baba ijebu, Winners Golden Chance, and lots more.
We have created a blog post that explains what the lottery is and how to play the lottery online.
But while trying to play the lottery game, ensure you are using part and not all of your savings. As there is no guarantee for the lottery, it all boils down to experience + luck.
But there is cool cash to be won.

If yes, then you can be a translator and you would make money by just translating.
Many individuals, and businesses are in need and in search of a translator and they, therefore, go to translation websites to find translators that they can pay to help translate for them.
Or can you transcribe audio or video? If yes, you can get paid also for just transcribing audio and videos into text.
Set up an Online Course
You have a skill or program you would love to teach people during this lockdown period but not sure how to go about it and how to make money from it.
Guess what, you can sell your courses or programs online by setting up a course on an online course platform and then asking your audience to go and learn the courses on the online platform conveniently.
You would be making money continuously from your already laid-down knowledge.
Are you familiar with dropshipping? Dropshipping is a good business model that has enabled individuals to make money online while staying or working at home.
What really is dropshipping?
Dropshipping is a retail fulfillment method where an individual or store doesn’t keep the products it sells in stock. Instead, when the individual sells a product using the dropshipping model, he/she purchases the item from a third party and has it shipped directly to the customer. As a result, the seller doesn’t have to handle the product directly.
To break that down, dropshipping involves selling goods to customers without having those goods in-store or at hand, so you publicize different manufacturer goods and when people purchase from you, the manufacturer delivers the goods on your behalf and you make your cash.
It’s a simple business model, in which you can venture and make cash prizes online at home.
We would recommend Oberlo, a marketplace for dropshipping, they have automated the whole system, all you have to do is sell from your home and they handle all other tasks.
Another marketplace is AliExpress, where you can browse AliExpress and import the products you want to sell to your audiences.
Those are some of the ways of making money online during the coronavirus lockdown or quarantine.
Some of the options above would need your time and dedication, but yes, of course, you have got that time since you are staying at home for the main time.
Do let us know in the comment sections, which of the above options of making money online from home you have tried and probably how you are getting paid.
