Ideas to make money during a pandemic
1.Virtual Project Management
With the present workplace relocated to the home, a lot of companies need to keep in touch with members of their team through virtual teams.
Most companies will need to help to manage virtual teams in different remote locations. If you have skills in how to manage projects remotely you are in business.
Having skills that have to do with various online project management tools like Asana, Trello, Zoho, Zoom, Jira, etc will be something you can monetize during this season.
While the lockdown and pandemic lasts this skill will continue to be in demand.
Even at the end of the pandemic, companies will need training and knowledge impartation on how to manage virtual teams.
The COVID-19 has proven that as a business you cannot afford not to have an online business strategy.
I have written a lot on how to start an online shop, If you are a follower of my blog you should know by now that I have a partial bias for ecommerce shops.
I have often said that the best and easiest way for you to explore your passion for buying and selling is via an ecommerce shop.
Today I have been proven right.
A lot of ecommerce shops that sell essential goods will be sold out right now as the online business world booms.
There are many places you can sell online, you can either sell on standalone ecommerce shops like
Or you can sell on online market places like Amazon, Bonanza, and Etsy. There are major differences between the two options.
If you are ready to start your ecommerce shop today, sign up with Shopify, the most popular and customer friendly online shop platform there is.
For just 29 dollars a month, you can have your online shop set up and ready to go.
If you don’t have the patience to learn to set it up, I can set it for you.
Just click here to sign me up.
There are two ways to make money when it comes to ecommerce, you can run an ecommerce shop yourself or you can set it up and manage it for someone else.
The first option allows you to own your business, while the second option allows you to offer ecommerce services to an online shop owner.
Either way you do it, making money from ecommerce is a sure way to beat the lockdown and the economic downturn that follows it.
It is also one of those ideas to make money that will continue to boom for a long time to come.
3.Web Design and Management
Web design and management is a skill that will be in high demand right now.
How do I know it is one of those ideas to make money?
Because a lot of companies will be rebranding and repositioning their websites in order to attract customers online.
For some that had websites that were not interactive, this COVID-19 will push them to make serious changes to how they connect with their customers.
I was once shopping for something online, each time I got to where I wanted to make a purchase, I would be asked to drop my email and wait for a quote.
I said these people are not ready to do business. Before they finish preparing their quote and sending it, I have made a choice or moved on
So many online websites are like that, they are not designed to get the customer to make a purchase, hence they lose out on all their customers
I later purchased what I was shopping for from someone who was ready to let me pay immediately.
So many businesses that were not prepared to do business online will now be looking to re-strategize their online presence to make money.
You can guess they will be seeking for someone to help them redesign their website.
This is where anyone who has such skills will be contacted to help out, this skill represents a serious moneymaker for the times we are in now.
If you know how to design a website using WordPress, you will be in demand as a lot of people trust the WordPress content management system. WordPress skills are in hot demand now.
4.Social Media Management
Social media management skills is a skill that will be fetching hot money right now.
A lot of businesses having been shut down will be looking to connect engage and sell to their customers via various social media channels where a lot of people are spending their time.
If you have skills for managing social media, connecting with customers, designing graphics and running campaigns, this is the best time to use your skills to earn money. There will never be a time like this in a long time.
This is the time to reach out to your customers by either creating a profile on freelance platforms like Upwork or Freelancer.com or having your own stand-alone website where you showcase the services you have to offer.
Social media management skills is skill to beat in this current season.

This year when I was praying for my business, I was impressed in my heart that this will be the year for printables.
I did not understand what the Lord meant, but one thing I knew was that God gave me a seed to help me understand what he was saying.
I was reading Lena Gotts’s (of whatmommydoes) email yesterday and she was saying her printables products were flying off the shelves, she was making enough from her printables sales to pay down her mortgage.
This is because a lot of people who are home now are turning to printables products to help them get through the day.
If you have not started your printables business I wonder what you are waiting for.
It was because of you that I launched the Newbie Printables Business course earlier in January.
God knew what was to come and impressed on me to get it out the door.
