The Covid-19 pandemic has been quite destructive so far. A lot of people have passed away while others are living in misery as they’ve lost their jobs.
Due to all these reasons, people are now switching to the digital world, online work, and businesses. It may be a little difficult, but it has a variety of benefits as well. People are now earning a fortune through all these online applications while sitting at home.
Let me share with you my own story! I’m a gaming enthusiast. Gaming happens to be a regular part of my life, and guess what? It has now become a means of earning for me. Yes, I’m earning a decent amount of money from the gaming vlogs I make.
Here I have a list of ways you can earn digitally with your feet in the online world. Have a look:
First and foremost, let’s have a look at the gaming vlogs. As I mentioned earlier, gaming vlogs became my earning source after I lost my job due to my company’s downsizing amid the pandemic. Truth be told, it’s better than having a full-time job.
I record all the games I play, compile the videos together, uploading them to my YouTube channel. I got a million followers in 8-9 months and now I’m earning more than I ever did from my full-time job in a marketing firm.
For this, all you need to do is purchase a few gaming essentials as a screen recording of your smartphone is not going to cut it. Thus, you need to purchase a gaming monitor, gaming keypad and mouse, a high-quality sound system, a video camera, and the best thermal compounds. Remember that this little investment is going to go a long way.
It’s an era of globalization and the internet, as well as social media applications, have become a necessity for the survival of human beings. It’s time you harness the power of social media and use it as a means to make a decent living out of it.
It’s not as complicated as you think. Explore your strong suit, whether it’s gaming, fashion, cooking, or lifestyle coaching, and make an Instagram blog according to it. Start posting on your blog regularly and you’ll get thousands of followers in less than no time.
Once you hit 3-4 thousand followers, relevant brands will start approaching you for endorsements. Trust me; it’s another effortless way to earn a fortune and that too, without stepping out of your home. Simply find out your strong suit and keep polishing it.
Ranking third is content writing. I often write for gaming websites and they pay me well for it. Every day articles are quite different from research journals. They don’t require hours of research and survey. You just need to be knowledgeable about your niche.
My niche is gaming. I’m pretty aware of all the web games out there as I’m a gaming enthusiast. Also, I keep reading about it and I try all the new video games immediately after they’re launched.
Writing articles on gaming not only broadens my horizon but also channels my English language skills. In all this time, I’ve learned the art of expansion, so now I occasionally write for fashion and lifestyle websites, too. It’s more than fun and the result is quite satisfying.
Affiliate marketing is one of the old and famous ways to earn a substantial amount of money. In fact, it’s a side business for most people here in the US. The popularity of affiliate marketing has fluctuated many times throughout the years, but it has remained a stable way of digital earning.
In case you’re new to it, affiliate marketing allows you to make money by promoting different brands and the best part of the story is that you can be an affiliate for any brand or company. For example, a friend of mine has her Amazon affiliate website. She promotes gaming gadgets and I must say she’s making a great amount of money on a daily basis.
If you like the idea of affiliate marketing, I suggest you combine it with content writing and promote different brands through your articles. You can either create a website for it or simply use your social media accounts. What matters is the traffic and lead generation at the end of the day.
I was thinking of expanding my work from vlogs and content writing, so someone recently suggested that I create my own gaming course. In my opinion, it would be a great start for long-term earning. Are you confused? Alright. Let me explain this in detail.
You make a vlog, you get thousands of likes and comments, and you get paid per click. And then what? You make another vlog, so it’s a vicious cycle that requires regular work and hours of hard work. It is precisely why I was looking for something that requires minimal effort and gives fruitful results.
Creating an online web gaming course is just a one-time thing. Albeit I’ll make sure it stays updated as per new advancements in the gaming world, it wouldn’t need regular editing or frequent content. Hence, it’s a wonderful idea to earn a fortune digitally. Again, you need to explore your creative side before creating an online course.
Lastly, what you need to understand is that it takes some time and lots of hard work to flourish, be it the digital world or a conventional job. I remember I started with freelancing, then became a part of a marketing firm as their IT manager, then started my own YouTube channel and became a content writer. It has been a long journey and I might make my own gaming app someday. Who knows where I end up?
All you need to do is be consistent in what you do and hold the rope of patience for as long as you can. Trust me; patience and consistency are two things that can turn the tables for you. Give it a thought, my pals!
