Many economic sectors are affected by covid-19. Your income may decrease, and it is time to look for new alternatives to earn money.
You must look for some activities that allow you to be able to choose where you work, and without the pressure of a hostile environment. In this case, the digital era progresses and increasingly emerge more new business models that will earn money on the internet.
Here are some inspirations for it:
#1 Being a Virtual assistant
If you are good at communicating with people, this can be an excellent alternative to earn money from home that may be ideal for you.
Nowadays, it is quite common for companies to contract customer service externally.
What does it consist of? A company or individual hires you to answer calls from your home and provide a solution to customers.
In this type of work from home, you must have information about the company, and knowledge of possible doubts to solve all the problems that arise.
Some companies want you to manage their social media. For example, you can offer a Linkedin automation service. It is a profitable sector with pretty low competition.
To do this job, you must have certain basic technological requirements at home; such as specific headphones that isolate sound, a built-in microphone and a call terminal (in case you need to communicate with the clients orally).
With this job you can work the hours, you agree on flexibly. Although, as in all work, levels of responsibility are required.
#2 Airbnb host
If you want to make money from home, without the need to work, you can become an Airbnb host and generate income with those spaces that you do not use.
In fact, you don't need a whole house to make money with Airbnb. You can publish that unused room, a room, your living room, an attic, or even, if you are on vacation, list your apartment so that it generates income while you're on vacation.
All you have to do is register as a Host, publish your space, and the platform will take care of showing it to interested people. The good news is that you set the conditions that guests must meet.
#3 Amazon affiliate program
If you are looking for which business to start from home, affiliate marketing can be an excellent idea.
This business idea is possible thanks to the potential of the internet, which allows you to recommend products from third parties (without having to know them), and earn a commission for each sale you make of the product or service.
If you have a digital community, be it a blog or a social network, you can start recommending products that are of interest to the people who follow you. An essential point within Affiliate Marketing is that you must be honest with your community, and second, be sure to recommend quality products, since it is your image that is at stake.
One of the most popular programs worldwide is Amazon Affiliates. It gives you a commission for every sale you manage to make from your website.
