3 Ways To Make Money During Pandemic (NOW!)

Make Money Online


“Regardless of What Is Happening In The World, We Need Money To Survive!”

I know what you are thinking, actually not just you but the majority of people. How can we make money in this disastrous time?

How to make money during pandemic? How can we make enough money during quarantine caused by the Covid-19 pandemic?

Are we doomed? The economy is crashing, are we set to experience another Great Depression?

All of this is not very idyllic, and sadly, I don't know what is coming, I am not an oracle thus I cannot predict the future.

However, if you plan on seeing things half-full instead of half-empty, I can help, I am here to show you there is hope.

Sure, the situation around the world is bad, I am not neglecting reality as it is, I know it's bad and I hope everything turns back to the way it was or better. Not a single doubt about that.

But that doesn't mean we should be sulking or beating ourselves up and cry and complain about all of this. 

Wipe those tears and smile, there's always a way 🙂

In this article, I will show you 3 ways to still make a living online at home, the difference between myself and those who used to work at big companies.

The difference between the 9-5 Corparate job and the job of an affiliate marketer that works at home.

What Has The Pandemic Caused On The Economy?

Let's take a look at what the Novel Coronavirus outbreak did since the beginning in late December 2019. 

  1. Instilled Fear Into The Hearts Of Everyone Internationally
  2. The Economies Around The World Is Crashing (Soon To The Level Of The Great Depression)
  3. Unemployment Rate Has Been Rapidly Increasing

Like  I said earlier, there's not a single good thing that happened to us as a human in the last 3-4 months because of this outbreak.

There's only one good thing that happened, and that's for mother nature. Less pollution, more growth in nature. 

Anyway, back to the economy. Take a look at the statistics in the US.

US Unemployment

In March there are close to 6.6 millions that are unemployed due the novel coronavirus shutting down small businesses and big business all together due to lockdown.

And trust me, it will most likely get worse in the next few months before we start seeing some changes to the good side.

According to Berkeley News, this is way worse than the recession we had, if we are not careful, it could even be worse than the great depression.

Are you going to be like the 99% of people without a job and just whine about this, and ask themselves constantly why is this happening?

Or are you going to take action today, right now, and be innovative with the situation. 

Here are 3 ways to help you get back on your feet without the help of the government, secret vaccine for the virus or a mysterious savior.

  • 1. Affiliate Marketing
  • 2. Forex Trading
  • 3. Become a YouTube Sensation

1. Affiliate Marketing

If you don't know what affiliate marketing is, you must be living under a rock. I created an infographic for you to better understand the concept.

Affiliate Marketing Process

That's the exact process, nothing too complicated, right?

So basically, you make money by referring someone else's product, and the best example I can give you right off the top of my head is Amazon.

People know about Amazon, people buy stuff at Amazon every day, hell, every second!

All you need to do is promote a product that's already there, you don't have to have the product in your hands. You simply refer people there through something called an "affiliate link", which is free to get by the way.

I know, you must be thinking, that sounds easy but how exactly am I going to have people click on the link, do I post it on social media randomly? or send them to people through PM?

No, those methods on affiliate marketing won't work, and you will be probably be called a spammer.

I have written a whole guide on how to get started with affiliate marketing as a complete beginner, the guide is explained step-by-step, that's why it is so easy to understand.

But if you don't have time to do that, here's a quick summary of what you can do.

  1. Build a Website (In 30 seconds or less - See Affiliate Marketing Guide)
  2. Promote The Products You Want On Your Website (Pick From Passion or Interest )
  3. Drive Traffic (people) To Your Website.
  4. Turn Traffic Into Revenue.

Another question you probably have when it comes to making money online is, "does it really work?".

And to that, I say yes. Here are some proofs that I am making commissions over and over again, every single day.

Sell Health Commissions

This is how you can create a legit business that can generate you a full-time income even in times like this where people are becoming jobless.

2. Forex Trading

Forex Trading or Crypto Trading

Trading is becoming more and more popular these days. Forex means foreign exchange, in case you didn't know.

It is the buying and selling of currencies and with the hope of finding the best deal to make money while doing so.

I will give you an example. Let's say you are going on Vacation to Hong Kong. You will exchange $1.000 into HK Dollars.

1USD equals to 7.75HKD, so that will put you at 7.750HKD.

But during your stay there, you met an old friend and everything was paid for you, so at the end of the vacation, you want to turn your unused HKD back into USD.

But now, the currency has dropped to 7 instead of 7.75 so when you get it back in USD it will be 7.750/7 is 1.107USD.

So instead of getting $1.000, you get $1.107 instead, that's a profit of $107 dollars.

That's how trading actually works and how traders make money.

Bitcoin Trading

The difference between Forex and Bitcoin is the market, Forex is the largest and most liquid market in the world, the daily turnover is trillion dollars, whereas Bitcoin is a smaller market worth about $137 billion.

From what I have learned, Crypto Trading is for those who expect high ROI, as high as 70%.

But if you want something that's more stable and ongoing, something less risky, then Forex Trading is the way to go.

3. Become a YouTuber

Make Money With Youtube

Some of you are still unaware where this new internet era is going, back in the 2000's people were like nah, FaceBook are for kids, I am not making one.

Then came Instagram and people were like nah, Instagram is for people who like to make picture or have a keen interest in photography.

Look at those people now.

And with the rise of TikTok and other social media platforms, everything will be done via the internet in the next 5-10 years.

Information will travel much faster through social media than any world news on television.

Did you know about Covid-19 through the news? or did you heard about it through a Facebook post, an Instragram post, etc?

I rest my case. Don't be like those people in the early 2000's and say never.

Accept what is happening, go with the trend. YouTubers was frowned upon until someone became a millionaire for making videos on a regular basis.

Here's a simple video of PewDiePie, the most subscribed channeln on YouTube. This is literally how most of his videos are like, and do you know how many subscribers he has? 100+ millions.

He makes millions upon millions every year.

Did he know he was going to make this much money for doing something completely random and passionate? no! He just did.

Are you going to make millions a year right away? definitely not but you can make thousands a month after a few months, that's definitely doable.

Here a list for the top 10 highest-paid YouTube stars in 2019 according to forbes in case you are interested and want to know how random these channels are.

My Last Words

None of these methods will help you become rich overnight but all of them are legit IF you put in the work and learn, most importantly, if you take action, every single day!

Remember this, everyone starts from ground zero, you are no different, and they are definitely no smarter than you are.

In this pandemic crisis, I see a lot people coming out of their skin and trying new stuff, finding new passion, etc.

I am genuinely happy for them and I wish every one of them will keep doing this even when the pandemic is over.

But then there are people who I see every day on social media complaining about the situation, complaining about their job.

For those, I wish they can read this article and realize there are so many solutions waiting for them.

Personally, I am working at home way before the crisis, I do affiliate marketing and I am a full-time income online at home, so I am not really affected by the crisis.

You can literally get started with affiliate marketing for FREE, so instead of dwelling and whining while being quarantined, why not start with affiliate marketing instead?

I hope this helped you reach an epiphany if you are indeed struggling to make ends meet, and if you have anything else you want to know or want to share in this difficult time, leave a comment down below.

Maybe you have your own way of making money during this covid-19 pandemic crisis, I would love to hear that as well 🙂

  • Nice one. I like how you say that money doesn’t come easy and there is no get-rich-quick with anything that’s legit. Some grinding is necessary.

    I don’t think I can be a YouTuber but learning forex and affiliate marketing are great ideas that I think I can use to make money. Which one would you suggest I try first?

    • Hello Riley,

      True, whenever you see something that says overnight success or something similar to that, just run, don’t even turn back to look at it.

      If it was up to me, it’s obvious, I did affiliate marketing and it’s working out for me big-time 🙂

      If you don’t know anything about either one, I would say go for affiliate marketing because it’s easier and also higher on the list for success rate.

      All you need is to follow a proven-system and put in the work.

      Here’s a guide for you if you want to get started, a Step-by-step affiliate marketing guide for beginners.

      I hope this helped, good luck!

  • This is really good to see, and thank you so much for sharing this. 

    Learning about the opportunities presented by youtube, affiliate marketing and forex trading is like a heavenly sent gift. 

    In all honesty though, I would prefer affiliate marketing and also forex trading. The reason being that I already have the basic background knowledge of them and would just be a lot easy to pounce on the opportunities here

    • Hi Ella,

      You are welcome, sooner or later YouTube will be the main platform we go to for answers, so don’t completely cut off the idea of making videos.

      Best of luck!

  • This is one hell of an eye-opening article, I have seen a lot of articles on how to make money online during this COVID-10 pandemic but never seen any as intriguing as this. 

    Your article really is inspiring and I will definitely check out your guide on how to do affiliate marketing as a complete newbie.

    Do you think affiliate marketing will work for someone who doesn’t have a lot of money to spend?

    • Hi Evans,

      Thanks for reading and yes, affiliate marketing IS for those who don’t have a lot of money. Personally, I never spend more than $100 to get started with my affiliate marketing journey.

      There’s a platform where you can join for free and learn everything about affiliate marketing, it’s called Wealthy Affiliate, I so happen to be a premium member there because they are legit.

      But you can just join as a FREE member and learn.

      Hope this helps, best of luck!

  • Useful informative post. Totally agree with your assessment of covid-19 and the financial impact that it is already having and going to have.

    I’m not convinced in the Forex trading to be honest. Too much of a gamble for me. I am a skilled poker player but would still not put my future on it.

    Seriously tempted with affiliate marketing though . I have heard some good things and am going to take a close look over the next few weeks.

    Thank you again

    • Hi Lawrence,

      Thanks! It is what it is, no point in dwelling. Look for a solution and adjust to the COVID-19 situation.

      The choice is yours 🙂

      Affiliate Marketing is great, definitely give it a try, if you have any question, feel free to ask!

      Best of luck.
