How to make money during coronavirus lockdown- 5 practical ways

The coronavirus has caused unemployed huge unemployment rates in the world. According to the unemployment rate in US can reach 16% similar to the great depression.

This is the reason many people are looking for ways to make money online or otherwise. Having worked online full time since 2019 I know the benefits of this. Today I want to show you how to make money during coronavirus lockdown.

These methods are a combination of short (part-time) and full time so you can decide what you like to follow.

Before we start you may also be interested in checking a free training program which helped quit my corporate job and work full time online at the start of 2019.

Without further ado, let’s get started.

You can also watch the video for the summary for this post.

Why work online?

When it comes to how to make money during coronavirus lockdown it is no doubt that everyone is indoors (well most people).

This than leaves a great opportunity for people who are making money online as the audience is overwhelmingly large.

There are however other essentially service businesses which are working however these can only benefit those who already had essential service business before lockdown.

For example starting a retail service now would not help you unless you had it running before as you would be benefiting.

So here are all the reasons I will merely talk about online ways to make money:

  • You can start a business very cheap and sometimes free
  • You can learn for free and start your business within few days
  • The world will likely be going the direction of working online (most companies are already doing this)
  • You can earn money in multiple ways
  • The hours are flexible
  • You have more time to work spent with your loved ones

Now that you have seen the reasons for making money online let’s get into the ways which work best.

1. Be a social media evaluator

One of the best ways to make money is being a social media evalutor and many people are suing this method as they are normally on social media during lockdown.

So what is a social media evalutor?

Well this is where you evaluator a companies social media interactions to see if the company is doing well or not.

By company, I do not necessarily mean a brick and mortar (although you can do this too).

I am talking about any person who owns a business like me online. You see many of us do need to delegate as we can’t run a website and check our social media platforms.

This is where you or anyone can come in and do the work and get paid.

The great thing about a social media evaluator it can be done be absolutely anyone as long as you enjoy the world of social media.

To add to that it is free to start off and make money unlike other ways.

2. Start a blog

Did you know that there are many people putting food on the table with just a blog?

In fact did you even know that there are many others making 6 six figures with a blog?

Well it is true and I was shocked to see this when I started this blogging business online back in 2016. However, it was only until I got proper training did I start seeing income which I got in 2018 sadly.

The problems is that I had gone through many scams and many training programs which promised to help me but ended up not fulfilling their promises.

When you start a blog you basically talk about any interest that you like and provide help to them and then you will earn through the site ads or affiliate links.

This is why this can be done by anyone who has the drive to write high quality articles. In fact there are some college students earning a part-time or full time income through blogging.

The good thing with a blog is that you can earn so much just by talking about what you love.

I do advise you get proper training when you start and get someone to guide you otherwise you will end up wasting 2 years not succeeding like I did from 2016 to 2018.

However once I got the training I am now earning a full time income online and helping others to do the same thing.

If you would like to get this blogging training where I will guide you until you get your first sale and more, you can join the free training and we will start working.


Please do note that only join me if you are serious about making money online and you are willing to work hard because it will require lots of effort especially at the beginning.

3. Be a freelancer

Freelancing is another booming industry right now as more people are needing these people’s services.

Do you have a skill that you are an expert in where you can help others?

If you do you could lock in with many freelancing platforms which can assist you make money as some of the most famous are:

There are the most widely used platforms which connect the customer and the freelancer.

As I said it would help if you have a skill which is internet based or online since most of these freelancing sites do need this.

I will list the skills which are in high demand for freelancing:

  • Graphic desiging
  • Writing blog articles for bloggers
  • Creating sales videos
  • Creating YouTube videos for people
  • Doing email marketing series for bloggers and website owners
  • Writing ebooks for people
  • Creating audio books for people

If you look closely at this list you will see that if you have blogging skills you could be able to do most of these.

This leads me back to my reason which I said starting a blog is the best option if you are looking to work online.

4. Be an online tutor

Online tutoring is also great as this can be done by absolutely any person who has something to teach.

For example if you are a native English speaker you could start teaching online for a good amount.

However there are other companies which require you to have some sort of teaching qualification called TEFL/TESOL together with a degree.

Having these will give you a better chance to actually get a gig and also a higher salary. I know people who earn $2000 teaching 20 hours a week online.

You can also teach privately if you have other skill or information that you want. This however might be a bit hard if you do not have clients already.

5. Make money playing games

Did you know that there are many people making a living just playing games?

In fact let me rephrase it: Did you know that there are many kids and teenagers making a living playing games?

Yes it is true and what makes it more exciting is that anyone can do it.

If you enjoy playing games online then I think you should consider playing games to make money.

The cool thing is that you don’t need to buy any x box or PlayStation to start making money with playing games online.

All you need is a laptop with an internet connection and you are set.

There are many bad sites where you won’t really earn but I have out some of the best ones below so you do not waste your time:

Swagbucks is a reliable places to get paid playing games as they pay you easily and efficiently.

The other good thing with swagbucks is that they do not just offer games but many other ways to make money like filling in some surveys.

Gamesville is one of the well-known and popular site for earning with playing games.

This is because this platform earned its reputation but giving people different ways to earn with playing games.

You could earn GV rewards and you can turn them into cash or other prizes that you wish.

With the platform you also have the option of choosing to be paid cash instead for other competitions within the platform.

BTW gamesville is one of my favorite ways to cash in along with

Inboxdollars has always been my most favorite platform to get paid playing games because of the high earning you get.

As a beginner in the platform you can get $10 per day and that amount increases as you use the platform more.

Final thoughts

It is safe to say that most people are looking to making money so they can survive the coronavirus lockdown and being online is the best for anyone.

In fact, we should be grateful for the internet for the opportunities it provides to us and if it was not for it I would still be working a 9-5 that I hated.

There are many ways to make money online and the ones which work well are:

  • Blogging
  • Playing games for money
  • Freelancing
  • Online tutoring
  • Social media evaluator

I chose blogging a few years ago and I focused until I did it full time. I did this because once you have blogging skill you basically gain most of the skills you need from making money online.

Today it has given me all the freedom I want and I am thankful for the system that helped me do this.

If you are also interested in the program you can check out the free training which helped me and see if you like it or not and decided for yourself if its something you like.
