Ways To Make Money Online During This Lockdown.
So many countries have gone on lockdown forcing people on a mandatory #stayathome practice, with usually little to none to do at home.
The situation gets trickier for people whose work does not allow them to work from home so they spend the rest of the day with nothing productive to do.
The internet offers a treasure trove of unique ways to get yourself busy and make money online during this lockdown.
And iHarare has made a list of effective online websites that can help you make money online.
Find Freelance Gigs and Sell Your service
These are for marketable skills like writing, graphic designing, web development, marketing and many more. You can earn from $5 to a $100 per hour working on these websites and providing your services to companies and individuals. All you got to do is register, make a strong profile that attracts clients and once done, start bidding on jobs that come your way and are relevant to your area of expertise. You can use websites such as Fiverr, Upwork, freelance.com where you get paid via Paypal.
Selling Photos Online
ShuuterStock, iStorePhoto, Getty Images, Adobe Stock and many other online stock photo companies do buy quality photos. If you are a photographer, or with a good camera and photographing skills you can make money online by taking photos and uploading on these. A better way to find yourself selling more is to find a subject with fewer searched but you feel may have a great demand, take more photos of such subjects.
You may as well rope in an adult-themed website that offers the sell and view of explicit pictures and videos where only your fans would bid to view adult rated pictures of your self. For such, you can use OnlyFans.com

Open A Youtube Channel To Entertain and Educate
If you have a talent that you think people may be interested in seeing. Or content that doesn’t require writing but visual presentations. YouTube is the best channel you can use to showcase such. All you got to do is open a youtube channel, constantly upload your videos that do interest a lot of people and monetize by getting more subscribers and viewers. Youtube pays per thousand views.
