Do you have to work from home due to coronavirus?

So here's a post I never thought I'd have to write  but as it directly affects me and millions of other workers in the UK it needs to be done. If you're self-employed and live paycheck to paycheck, following government advice and not leaving your house for 3 weeks+ could be your worst nightmare, the mortgage, rent and bills aren't taking a 3 week holiday! Debts will mount up. So finding a way to make money from home is essential.

"That's the doom and gloom over"

Look on the bright side if you're put in a quarantined situation it could be a perfect time to learn a new business skill “side hustle” .  Just think, how many times in your life will you have 336 hours spare to learn?

Now more than ever we need an income, we need to make  money from home and lots of it! The global recession that is coming will eclipse 2008 and anything before it. Many people up to 1 in 4 will lose their job in 2020 so now is the time to think outside the box.

It's easy for the government to say work from home to save lives! But in reality, it is simply not an option for most workers. If you work in a bar, hair salon, beauticians, mechanic, removal man how are you meant to work from home due to coronavirus?

There are 100's of websites claiming you can make money online but most of these sites are talking crap and won't make you a penny. We only recommend tried and tested methods to earn a living online, we will be adding to this list as time goes on.

Creating something positive takes you out of the dark. It gives you the energy and motivation we will all need in the coming months. So try one of the 10 jobs in the list; the learning process will be just as rewarding as any financial gains."

If you do nothing else read at least 1 of these 3 books they changed my concept of money and entrepreneurship; in fact they were the inspiration for this very website.

Affiliate marketing on Pinterest #2

Zero Start-up Costs | Newbie | Mobile-PC | 24h | Passive Income | Affiliate Marketing

I've been affiliate marketing on Pinterest for 5 years now and its simplicity is what makes it awesome, its the perfect way to make money from home for people with no experience It's an untapped online market place, it's been dubbed the search engine of ideas! That's what makes it the perfect selling platform.

So what's affiliate marketing on Pinterest and why should I do it?

Think of your pin on Pinterest as an advert, that small piece of online retail is your shop front.  All you have to create is an eye-catching image and 500 words to describe your product and its benefits and make a sale! Sounds easy? Well, it is but getting it right sure isn't.

Check out my pin for a men's leather sling bag, you upload the pin created on Canva "I like to make the pins humorous to grab attention" then write your description- you get up to 500 words- include hashtags such as my example #mensfashion #fashion #menswear worked well.

The next bit is where the magic happens!  Where it says "add destination link" you add a link to a product on Amazon and if clicked the customer is taken to the amazon store and if a purchase is made you receive a percentage of the sale anything up to 10% of the product value.  So a £100 bag might earn you £10 in affiliate commission. We use Amazon affiliate links as you can market nearly any product from Amazon's vast catalogue.

Blogger, Content Creation #2

make money from home content creation blog

This is my 3rd blog and #1 favourite way to make money from home, online. Unlimited earning potential you can make $millions$ with the right blog idea. The startup is a low cost, all you need is a good web host company.
Then just start to write, everyone is an expert in something: be it fixing cars, planting trees or frugal living; the subject isn't important.

My 1st two blogs were about Men's Hairstyles! Because I am an expert on the subject, that's my niche, my sites ranked on the first page of Google and at one time had 800,000 monthly views.

You monetize a blog by either selling your own products directly from the website or by adding affiliate links. So with my hair blogs, I showed a hairstyle and explained which hair product I used to create the effect spikes, curls etc. Then if a viewer clicked on the product link they were redirected to Amazon and if the product was purchased I got a commission 5-10% of the item value.

How to make real online money!

The Huffington Post makes $14 million dollars a month, it's the world's most successful affiliate marketing website, study its design to shape your own.

Low-value vs High- value
There are two choices in the affiliate marketing business model. You can go low markup and sell many items at a low cost ie kitchen gadgets from Amazon and make 10% on 100's sales!

Or you go for high-value sales like getting clients to sign up to

Fiverr affiliates where you can earn $150 per new signup I go high value all the way if you're going to go to all that effort it needs to pay well.

Trade Stocks & Shares #7

There's an art to stock day trading very few can master! It's been said that 75% of traders fail, but if it was easy we'd all be millionaires. I took up the challenge in 2016 I always thought it would be cool to sit behind a rack of 6 monitors like a real Wall Street tycoon, this experience was the most thrilling "side hustle" to date however the profit-making potential is limitless but the losses can be equally devastating.

how to make money from home if you self-isolate

The difference between day trading and stock market investing 

Is that day trading can be super fast-paced, you can buy and sell a share within minutes or even seconds you wouldn't usually hold stock for more than a day or two.

You day trade on that morning's information i.e the news says tourists are in isolation on a cruise ship with a virus you "sell" shares in that company so you bet against the shares going up for every penny the share goes down you earn a specific amount of money. It works the same if a company has had some good news you "buy" the shares.

Whereas stock market investing is buying a share in Cola or Disney and keeping it for years, living off the dividends.

So that's a summary of trading I could make a whole website just on this topic with ebooks and live webinars and it would only scratch the surface you need to do your research read every rated trading book on Amazon before you ever make a trade. Also, I suggest you join Stocktwits it's the FB of trading and is the font of all knowledge. If you are really serious you can hire a stock trading expert to give you 1 on 1 lessons.

​Now you've got the knowledge all you need to do is sign up for a

reputable trading platform then start trading. Good luck and if you get any hot info, email me!

Ebooks are what we call Passive Income which means they make money 24/7. Whether you're in bed or on holiday or whatever, Amazon is selling your ebook all over the world day and night without you having to lift a finger, how cool is that?

Drop Servicing #10

Anyone who's looking into making money from home or working online has come across Dropshipping which is advertising products from China on eBay, Shopify etc then having the Chinese supplier ship the product directly to your customer. Which was a great business model and has made a lot of entrepreneurs a lot of money! I even spent countless hours writing the definitive guide to dropshipping blog post. But all that is irrelevant as drop shipping in 2020 is over due to our current situation.

how to make money from home drop servicing

New King In Town?

But all is not lost there's a new king and his name is Drop Servicing, it's going to rock 2020 and beyond. Drop servicing is advertising other peoples custom, bespoke usually digital products designs on your website or other media. Once you have sold the product or service and been paid only then do you pay your supplier who ships the item to your customer. So you never have to store or insure any stock you never need to pay postage, just advertise and take payment then pay a percentage to the supplier.

We decide the profit mark up and as the products are usually one-offs you can charge what you like.
Drop servicing products can be anything from bespoke ebooks, custom tattoo designs, cartoon animations or one of one t-shirt designs.
