Because of the coronavirus outbreak, we are expected to stay at home for weeks because we don’t know when or if the situation will get better! There is no way to go to work and many of us are not certain where we will get income to sustain our families.
As a result, we have to think about making money to make up for the temporary unemployment or the unpaid leaves we’ve been forced to take. In this article, I’m going to present a number of money-making ideas that can help you get through this quarantine period.
1. Do Delivery
If you have a car, you can start a business delivering food, medicine, and other essentials to people. That’s because most people don’t want to leave their houses because of the coronavirus outbreak.
Offer home deliveries to people in your area who have run out of supplies and charge them for each delivery. Just make sure that you don’t come into direct contact with the people you’re delivering to or people you meet in the supermarkets.
To be safe, set some delivery rules asking clients to pay for the delivery services using mobile money transfer services so you don’t handle physical money.
2. Offer Taxi/Uber Services
People are very apprehensive about using public transport at this point because of social distancing.
To protect yourself, you can take precautionary measures like these guys:
What they’re doing is installing a plastic shield between the front and rear seats of the car. The shield helps isolate the driver from passengers and prevents the virus from being spread through droplets in the air.
You’ll also need to disinfect the car frequently so that one passenger doesn’t infect others who also use the same vehicle. This is a great way to make money during quarantine because you have to remember that not everyone owns a car.
Also, not everyone is able to drive their cars. However, they still need to get from one point to another with as minimal human contact as possible and you will be providing that.
As a bonus, inform your passengers of the measures you’ve taken to ensure that your car is safe for use so they can feel assured.
Schools have closed and kids are at home causing havoc 😂. If you’re good with kids, you can start a babysitting service where you take care of the children as their parents go shopping or to look for other necessities.
However, like the previous jobs on this list, you have to maintain very high levels of hygiene so parents will trust you with their kids. Look for fun indoor games for the little ones to play at home so they’re not at risk of infection.
4. Get Paid To Go To Stores
Nobody wants to leave their house to do shopping so what if you can do it for them?
This business is very simple.
Your customers send you their shopping list to do the shopping for them and you get paid once you deliver the goods at their doorstep.
This is similar to a delivery service the only difference is that you go the extra mile to pick out everything that is listed on the shopping list.
With delivery, your job may be limited to simply transporting goods from point A to point B.
Make Money Online
The coronavirus outbreak is a great excuse to make money online because you can work from the safety of your home. There are many possibilities online whether you’re looking for instant cash or long-term cash to sustain you long after the Coronavirus outbreak is over.
Considering that you have an infinite amount of time on your hands right now, here are some realistic ways to make money online during the quarantine.
1.Start a Blog and Use Affiliate Marketing
Starting a blog and using affiliate marketing to generate income is an incredible way to make money online. With blogging, however, you need to create good content that will make people visit your blog.
You also need to sign up for affiliate marketing programs like Jumia and Amazon Associates so you can get access to unique affiliate links. When someone buys a product using your affiliate link, you get paid.
To be honest, affiliate marketing is where the money is at. For example, Michelle Schroeder-Gardner of the website Making Sense of Sense makes more than $100,000 per month from her blog using mainly affiliate marketing.
Another example is that of Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income. This guy has built a million-dollar career through affiliate marketing.
When you’re just starting out, you probably won’t make millions but you’ll make enough to at least sustain you through this quarantine period!

4. Launch a YouTube Channel to Entertain and Educate
