The Covid-19 pandemic has major disruption in our day to day activities. If you are working in a private company, chances are, you are among those who lost their jobs because of the inability of the employer to pay your wages. Whether you like or not, you are forced to stay at home and would wait for the assistance being given by the government.
Yesterday, covid-19 cases reach 5 million cases globally with more than 300,000 fatalities.
But this assistance may not last long especially if you have a big family who relied on you for their daily needs. Even if you want, you can’t go out to look for another job.
But you can still do something in order earn some amount that would sustain until you are free again to find another job. Just a sort of information, some of these jobs I am presenting to you will require an internet and laptop or mobile device before you could start earning.
So, here is the list of small business ideas we can start at current time.
Because of the increasing demand for medical products such as alcohol and face masks, I asked my sister if they could make some because I had some difficulties finding the face mask that is comfortable to wear. During our video conference, my sister told me that she and my mother have actually sewn a few pieces and gave those to their neighbors.
When my son went to their house, they gave him a few facemasks for us. I wore it to the office the next day. My officemates asked me where I bought my facemask and when I told them that my sister and mother are actually sewing those, they placed some orders.
As of now, my sister is actively promoting their products on Facebook and accepting orders.
For this kind of work, you might need a sewing machine and some cloths. But if you don’t have one, you can instead be a reseller. You can buy items at wholesale price and can sell the items on retail.
SELLING PREPAID MOBILE LOAD AND INTERNET DATA
The Philippines is a country where a large number of people own a mobile device. The country was even regarded as the text capital of the world because of this. If you would observe your neighbours, you would probably agree with me if I will tell you that selling prepaid mobile load and internet data would be a viable business.
Many people also spend time on social media and gaming sites. The affordability of load and internet data made it easier for the people to have access on the internet at low cost.
There are several players on this field but what I like most is using Coins.ph wallet because it offers 10% rebates every time we purchase mobile load and data. I find it better than GCash and PayMaya which offer 5% rebates. But it is also good if we also have those two other wallets for backup.
I opened my Coins.ph account in 2015. But I was only using it for my personal needs. Buying mobile loads and as a gateway for transferring amount which I earned from online source, especially Bitcoin. I also sell prepaid load and data but only for my colleagues and friends. It was just this February when I opened a store for selling prepaid load and data. I also accept bills payment. It was during this time when I realized that this is indeed a good business to pursue.
Note: The 10% rebate offered by Coins.ph is only good up to Ph10,000.00 per month. In excess of this amount, they will lower the rebate to 5%.
Online teaching has been a good source of income even before the Covid issues has started. With the current situation, children are not allowed to go out of their homes so many parents opted to enrol them to online classes.
If you have the skill, equipment and willingness to learn, this can be a profitable venture to try. Sites like Bibbo, 51Talk, and VIPKid are only some of the online sites where we can start an online teaching job.
COLLECT FREE BITCOIN SATOSHI
If you have some spare time, a laptop or a mobile device, and a good internet connection, you can try colleting some free bitcoin. You need a Bitcoin wallet to save your bitcoins. Some sites are also using micro wallet like Faucet Pay. The good thing about Faucet Pay is that you can withdraw small amounts from various Faucets and wait till the amount increased before you transferred it to your Bitcoin wallet.
Because you only need to visit a certain Bitcoin Faucet on an hourly interval or less, you can join many faucets. I have several Bitcoin Faucets which I visit alternately. One of those is Faucet Crypto.
Finding a crypto faucet with a good user interface is hard nowadays. That is why I was surprised the first time I visit Faucet Crypto. With its lively and organized design, you can complete the things you need to do with ease and without confusion.
As a first time user, I didn’t expect that I can get paid at the same day I joined. But I was amazed that I reached the minimum which is achievable and got paid on the same day. I received the payment instantly on my Faucet Pay account.
Note: they support 17 crypto currencies.
On the final thought
Staying at home is the safest thing to do during this time. Our life is more important than our job. However, we also need to think of ways in order to continuously sustain our day to day needs. I hope these ideas may be of help. If we are forced to stay at home, then make this stay more productive by starting a business we can do without going out.
