8 Ways Employees Can Earn in this Covid-19 Lockdown.

April 2020, is the first month I’ll stay without receiving salary earning from my boss. It’s terrible, but I’ve learnt the lesson the hard way.

I’m glad I’m making changes too. And you can. You can earn even in the cave-19 lockdown.

If you’re crying in this lockdown it is not your employer’s fault. It is your fault to a larger extent though.

While I know it’s not easy to survive, I believe that covered-19 has shown us how our world is and has changed completely.

For me, I was able to do my first online training last week. And guess what? That cash has carried me for a while. Although, I have a commitment to make my students get the real deal too.

For you as an employee, what are you waiting for?

NB: This is no time to say you’re not the online person. You don’t like online and all those self-denials we use to run away from personal responsibility.

Help ya sef with any of these:

  • Content Creation

You can earn by typing content jobs on Google. You will see a lot. If you’re fortunate, a company can hire you to write on their blog in this season. But you’ll have to know something about that niche.

So, I advice you look for writing jobs in the niche you have knowledge.

  • Editing jobs

You can also earn by editing works. Not necessarily creating from scratch. How do I get this?

Go online and type editing jobs and your journey begins.

  • Social Media Marketing

This is one reason you need a good online presence. They’ll need testimonial most times and I’d you can’t give any… Buy just try. You never can tell.

Do this: search for social media marketing jobs on google.

  • Coding

Is this too high?

Well, for some persons.

I started learning coding two or three weeks ago. You might not like this. But coding is the future of work. If you don’t know that by now then you’re late.

And the earnings in coding can be higher. Yes. If you feel you can’t do this then start a class on it.

  • Translating

Can you speak a different language like French or Spanish or Portuguese? There are jobs waiting for you. You can even use sites that translate to translate for you.

How again? (I can hear your heart asking that)… Google it. And you’ll see results.

  • Graphic Design

From Adobe apps – both on PCs and mobile, you can go for a graphic design job you an earn some dollars.

Or maybe you’ll need to understand these apps first and then apply.

Can you see how we limit ourselves sometimes?

I use Adobe Spark Post for my designs and it’s a mobile app. You too can.

  • Website building

Just like coding, there’s good earning in website building. It is a part of coding.

In about one week, several persons have asked me about building a website. That means it is a good source of earning.

  • User Testing

There are apps that several companies make and they want certain persons to test run them before they are launched. You can do that and get some earnings.

  • Teach online

This will turn you around. In fact, I recommend you do this. It will help you after the covid-19 lockdown.

Lots of organizations are using this and will continue. Perhaps, you’ll teach your colleagues in the office when you resume.

Don’t just sit and watch, especially, if your employer is not having any plans for you.

Do something with your life and your time. More updates coming in for you.

Africa and the Future of Work: How we Work and Earn is Changing. Are You Ready for this Disruption?

  • And this shows how work has changed – how production and exchange of goods & services have changed over time. It is the future of work versus the future of earning.
  • There are few persons that have the privilege of earning sufficiently from just a job.
  • Even in the midst of coronavirus, there are persons whose earnings are not going to be affected so much.

From reports yesterday and few days ago, Norwegian Airline said it would lay off up to 50% of its employees across all department, British Airways boss tells staff members that jobs will go and Employees in China visa service leave.

The figures are staggering. Nations are shutting down. The school system is not left out. Just few days ago, it was reported that secondary schools in certain states of Nigeria will shut down.

Coming back from work (a secondary school, where I work as a Life coach) yesterday, I went to get few things in a grocery store and I heard customers talking about how one of the most popular online betting website in Africa, bet9ja, has not been yielding much for bettors.

Why?

Football leagues around the world are on corona-break for safety. No one is playing. No one is watching. Therefore, few to none are betting.

However, I don’t think that the virtual version of the bet is totally down as virtual bets can be done with or without live matches.

And this shows how work has changed – how production and exchange of goods & services have changed over time. It is the future of work versus the future of earning.

My question is: Are you ready for that future? Are you building the structures needed for that future? How are you going to utilize this time of disruption as you work remotely?

Amongst other ways, these three can kick start your thinking in that direction.

1. Build an online business.

Despite the effects of the virus on the betting websites, it dawned on me there’s virtual betting. If the real Cristiano Ronaldo is not playing, PS4 CR7 can never contact coronavirus. Never!

For those who have such platforms, more cashflow is the case while they wait for the real players to come on live.

So, do you have any plans for building value online? See this post: 12 Ways you can absolutely make money online.

2. Have multiple streams of income.

One of the best advice I’ve received on creating multiple streams of income is this:

(Thanks to Shay K on Pinterest for sharing).

There are few persons that have the privilege of earning sufficiently from just a job. Follow this advice and I think you’ll be better for it. You can also read this too: How to build multiple streams of income.

3. Lifelong learning.

Devashish Chakravarty, on the Economic Times, calls it Renew and Grow. He said,

Tough times are ideal for investing in yourself and growing rapidly as a professional… your employer will be glad if you can deliver more value.”

And if she’s glad, wouldn’t she keep you?

Jim Rohn will tell you that


Even in the midst of coronavirus, there are persons whose earnings are not going to be affected so much. There are others who are also not afraid of being asked to stop work by their employer.

Why?

They have systems that can sustain them for as long as possible.

Show love to those around you by staying safe first and helping them stay safe. Visit who.int for more on coronavirus.
