THE FACT THAT IT TOOK US A WORLD PANDEMIC TO REALISE THAT LIFE IS SHORT AND WE SHOULD NOT TAKE IT FOR GRANTED, IS PRETTY SCARY.
Anyway, let’s get right into the quarantine edition, shall we? It’s been roughly 3 months now since the Coronavirus started to flip our lives upside down. By the way Happy Tuesday. Oh wait, or is it Friday? At this point honestly I don’t even have any idea which day or month it is. It feels like forever being stuck at home. More like a house arrest. From having to practice complete social distancing and staying inside to washing your hands and keeping them sanitized 100 times a day and not stepping out without the face masks, we are going crazy! The only thing keeping me sane in this period of self-isolation is writing my blogs. And that’s something I would 100% recommend to every one of you out there who wants to have a way out from this heaviness that we’re surrounded with and wants to take his/her mind off it.
In these past months of quarantine, when I’ve had all the free time on my hands, I figured out a few productive ways I think can actually help slip some bucks in your pocket through just writing content. It sounds bizarre but it actually works. Trust me that’s how all these bloggers or content strategists you see, sitting at home, make money online.
Start Blogging, BOOM!
Go for something most of the millennials are already doing, start blogging, start writing down what’s in your head! The best part about it is, you don’t need any specific qualification for it. Anyone and everyone well versed with English language written and spoken can opt for it. Now there’s always that one guy who’ll go, “but is it worth our time? Does it have any end result?” so my answer to that guy is, A BIG YES. Blogging can immensely help you drive profit in your pockets. Pick a topic, know your audience, define your style and start creating enticing content. If you have a flicker of writing on multiple topics, on literally anything and everything that intrigues you, Bravo! There’s nothing better than that. You can choose different platforms like WordPress, Tumblr, Medium or Wix for your blogs. The most common way to monetize your blog is through placing ads on the sites which include CPC and PPC ads. You will be paid for each time a reader clicks on the ad.
Earn Through Google AdSense
You must be wondering what those ads on the website do? It is the sole way of earning money through Google AdSense. Even you can earn it. See, if you own a website, half of your work is already done as you can post ads on your website with Google code. You will get a percentage on every click whenever any visitor clicks on that ad and rest will be taken by Google. And Voila! the revenue will multiply on the basis of a total number of visitors to your website and your ranking position. Go for freelancing!The most ideal, easy and cliché way of making money from home! Do your work, do some research, dig up some quality finds, take up new productive projects as per your skills and requirement. There are various websites for it today on the internet. Such as fiverr.com, freelancer.com, upwork.com, who are looking for outsourcing people for plenty of different tasks. On the aforementioned sites, you can earn from Rs. 500 to 5000 every day. You can find several jobs for SEO specialists, Lead managing, Mobile Marketing, Content Writing, Web designing, etc. Freelancers can also find digital marketing jobs in several Facebook and Instagram groups and on different job portals.
Social Media, The biggest hype house!
Believe me or not, in today’s day and age, social media is your knight in shining armour. It’s your key to earning money at your comfort zone. It’s the top most way of reaching out to a larger and bigger audience. All you have to do is find your target audience and BOOM half your work is done. You just have to give a little something that they can’t resist and they’ll come crashing right in. (Okay a little overdramatic but you get my point!) If you are running a group, you can charge quite a hefty sum for a sponsored post. Wondering how that favourite influencer of yours is travelling the world every other day? Don’t worry it’s not a biggie. Instagram influencers make up to Rs. 20000 a post if they have a huge follower database. Selling your products directly on Instagram through Instagram Posts and Stories – just tag products in your Instagram images and lead your Instagram audience to your product pages. You get all this done just by sitting on that favourite couch of that favourite corner of your home. Simple!
Hopefully, these above-mentioned tips help you with earning money online. This is the best time you can fuel up your earnings and brush up on those skills. We all have all the time we need and no excuse, it’s the golden opportunity to make some good use out of this whole lockdown so that when you step out you don’t regret wasting all of it down the drain. Ergo, use it to your advantage. Put in the effort so you can grow, that way you’ll come out of the Coronavirus stronger. Well wrapping it up all I can hope is for a better year ahead of us. Whatever is left of this year 2020. Sadly, the next few months are going to get worse. The daily count of new Coronavirus victims is growing. From a personal standpoint, all you can do is stay indoors and practice social distancing. But from a marketing, business, and career perspective, you can make a change! GO CORONA!
