Working From Home Explodes With COVID-19!

Has COVID-19 affected your employment situation? Hopefully, you haven’t been laid off or own a business that has gone under.  If you did dodge a lay-off, will you be as fortunate next time? Is any company safe from this coronavirus? It is my sincere hope that we come out of this pandemic soon, but if what we’re seeing in the news is any indication, we could be in for a long haul. What would it mean for your future if you were able to operate an online business that was less susceptible to economic fluctuation…and be able to WORK FROM HOME?


If you had the opportunity to earn an income from a more secure source, would you give it a shot? How much peace of mind would you have knowing you had an income stream not so dependent on market changes?


In the last few years, we’ve seen more and more companies offer employees the opportunity to work remotely, which is great.  However, in light or should I say darkness of COVID-19, working from home has exploded; which for some is not so great.  Unfortunately for a lot of industries, working from home just isn’t possible.


Laborers in fields such as construction, mining, retail, hospitality, transportation, service, etc. don’t have that luxury. Look at industries that have undergone massive layoffs or shutdowns due to the pandemic—education, government, small businesses, along with a lot of the ones mentioned above. There has also been a large number of people who have quit their jobs in public related positions.


According to a September 2020 Reuters Report,  the number of people voluntarily quitting their jobs increased from 344,000 to 2.9 million–mostly in the retail, professional, and business sectors; most likely reflecting fear of the virus.


With schools taking the virtual route primarily, the issue of childcare has presented a significant challenge, especially for women, forcing some to resign from their jobs.  The Reuters Report also states that the labor participation rate for women dropped in April 2020 to levels not seen since the 1980s.


Now I’m not saying quit your job and go start up an online business! I just want to show you how you can get your feet wet if you ever thought about getting into something online to make money. If you’re interested in a side gig that could provide a supplemental income, with the potential to produce full-time revenue, then I’d love to share with you what I’ve learned.


What You Know About Online Income Opportunities


You all know online marketing is essential for any business. You know the internet is the future for creating income opportunities. You have heard those success stories of people who turned an idea into an incredible online business. By now I’m sure most of you have heard of Affiliate Marketing.


You become affiliated with a company by either selling or promoting their products on your website. In turn, the company will pay you a commission for the products sold through your link. They basically pay you for generating traffic to their website. Sounds easy, doesn’t it?


What You Don’t Know About Online Income Opportunities


As great as it sounds, and the fact that you know making an income online is entirely possible, you may still be skeptical; most people are.   They’re afraid of scams, have a fear of technology, they may think they don’t have the skills or feel they just can’t do it.  Well not only is it possible, but it is also the future, and YOU CAN DO IT!


One of those online income opportunities is Affiliate Marketing, but what do you really know about it?  You may be thinking “Sure, it sounds great, but how do I get started? Is there a class? Where do I go for help?” I was asking those same questions when I discovered Wealthy Affiliate. 


I had a general idea of how it worked, but I was missing the nuts and bolts of it all. Through Wealthy Affiliate, I have gained a much deeper understanding of the online marketing process; things I’m sure you’re wondering about like: how to generate traffic to your website, what products/services your customers want, how to convert clicks to cash, Google ranking, SEO, and so many other important concepts vital to the success of your online business.




One of the best things about working from home is the freedom it brings.  You are the boss and set your own schedule. You can work from home; saving time and money by not having to commute, no wardrobe requirements, less wear and tear on your vehicle, less spent on eating out, and not to mention less stress!


Imagine not having to get up at a certain time, fighting the traffic, finding a place to park, dealing with the public…which is a super huge benefit now because it means less exposure to COVID-19.  Another awesome bonus is being able to spend more quality time with your family, and oh yea…the INCOME!


No Limits


Working remotely does not just mean working from your home!  You are not limited to the confines of your house. You can work your online business from anywhere. Heck, you can be on the beach and your business is still making money! Another big plus is you’re not limited to any geographical area.  Affiliate Marketing can work in rural America as well as urban America. The money you can make is also unlimited—depending on the work you are willing to put in. Wealthy Affiliate is available to assist you all the way.


COVID-19 Impact on Ecommerce


While COVID-19 has been the demise of many businesses, it has dramatically increased online shopping and sales! Ecommerce was already immense, but the pandemic has caused it to skyrocket!  A January 2021 report by ROI Revolution, states retail e-commerce sales grew 27.6% in 2020 after being projected to decline 16.5% mid-pandemic. Worldwide e-commerce sales are still approaching the $5 trillion dollar mark! The report goes on to say 75% of buyers and sellers now prefer digital options over face-to-face due to safety, speed, and convenience.



Think about your own shopping habits.  How much do you shop online? Why not get in on the receiving end and make e-commerce something you make money from instead of just something you spend money on?


What Do You Have to Lose?


If these ideas appeal to you, give Wealthy Affiliate a try.  With unlimited support from experts who have been in this business for over 15 years, what do you have to lose? Let’s put it like this, how many times in your life has someone said, “Take it and try it out first to see if you like it, and oh yeah, the free trial is for life.” That’s right! You will always have free websites, hosting, and a web builder. YIKES!!!


No brainer? DUH, YA THINK! On top of that if you decide some in-depth training and unlimited access to the community is something you want to consider down the road…well, see ya down the road!
