If you’ve come to The Money Shed during the Covid19 outbreak it’s more than likely you are looking for ways to earn money from home during Coronavirus or even find ways you can get free money during the outbreak.

In this blog post, we are going to look at some more creative ways to make money from home during the epidemic. Alongside this, if you feel you are struggling during this time then please do take a look at our post about How to manage your mental health while working from home during Coronavirus.

Now before we get on with the list I think it’s important that you understand with some of the creative ways to make money below you are going to need to put a fair bit of work in to see some results.

Get Paid to Walk and Run

The Government have said that we are able to go outside for one form of exercise a day and to be honest, walking and running has never been more popular!

It’s relatively cheap to start doing and there is no ongoing payment like you have with a gym membership. A lot of people will start their running journey by using apps like Couch to 5K but did you know you can have the added motivator or earning money while you are out and about!

Sweatcoin is a smartphone app available on both the Apple and Google App store that allows you to earn money the more you walk. Your steps are tracked via your phone’s accelerometers and GPS location and then converted into SweatCoins. Once you’ve gained ‘Coins’ you can convert them to anything from PayPal cash to wireless headphones and even holiday packages!

Grab £5 just by ordering a FREE Curve Card!

This is an easy ONE TIME offer but well worth doing. The Curve Card is designed so that you can bring all of your bank cards into one single card freeing up space in your wallet. Unlike traditional plastic cards that many of us are used to, the Curve Card is done so through a smartphone app which can be easily downloaded and from there you are able to add as many cards as you like, whether they are credit or debit cards, meaning everything is in the one, easily accessible place. 

When you order a Free Curve Card you will get £5 free to spend instore or online anywhere that they accept Mastercard. Signing up takes about 2 minutes to do and once you get the card in the post a few days later simply take it to a cash point and change the pin from the default one and the £5 will go from ‘Pending’ to ‘Applied’ and be free for you to use instantly!

Start your own blog

While not an instant earner pushing your creative juices into a blog is a fantastic way to earn money in the long run. You won’t need much money at the start to pay for website hosting and with UNLIMITED earning potential the upside is huge. If you fancy giving it a go take a look at our completely FREE Totally Blogging course which offers over 40+ modules that take you from setting up your first blog through to how to earn money from it and everything in-between. The Money Shed offers some fantastic EXCLUSIVE discount with UK Hosting companies GURU and Hostpresto to make sure you take a look!

Teach English Online

Have you ever heard the phrase “Those that can, do, and those that can’t Teach!”? Well that’s rubbish as anyone can teach online now from the comfort of their own home.

With Education First You will be expected to Deliver 25-minute high-quality and engaging one-on-one online classes to kids ages 6 to 10 and amongst other requirements they want you to have a 40 Hour TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification (or higher): submit now or provide when obtained at beginning of contract term. In return, they offer £9.35 per hour with opportunities to earn up to £11.48 per hour plus bonuses and holiday pay so it’s a great way for you to be creative with your teaching approach and earn some excellent money.

Earn money via Offerwall

Offerwalls have been around since ‘earning money from home’ has been a thing. Thankfully they have increased in both trust and money.

If you’ve never come across one of these sites before they work much like a regular cashback site but tend to pay a LOT faster. You simply sign up for various offers and products and get paid. As long as you remember to set a calendar reminder to cancel the service (such as Amazon Prime etc.) then there is nothing stopping you earning £100+ from sites like this.

Oh My Dosh Offerwall

The most well known Paywall / Offerwall site with OhMyDosh. Which lets you sign up for free and just plough through the offers in pretty rapid succession. As I mentioned above it’s important to set reminders to cancel services and as long as you do that you should be absolutely fine earning money during the Coronavirus outbreak in this way.

Become a Writer

They always say that everyone has at least one good book inside them waiting to come out. Well, this is your chance to see if that is true! Freelance Writing is a huge earner for a lot of people who end up with the right clients. Many people will start off by offering their freelance writing services on the likes of Fiverr, Upwork and People Per Hour. On those sites, you can start by offering to write blog posts for companies (usually starting around 500 words) and then as you feedback improves you will be able to charge more for your time and effort.

Casino Offers on Profit Accumulator

Matched Betting is a fantastic way of earning money from home with many earning thousands of pounds through it each year however due to the cancellation of sport during Coronavirus the bookies have pivoted from running offers on sports to instead casino or slot offers.

So how much money can be made from this? Well the folks at Matched Betting service Profit Accumulator have done some research to look at the difference between the money you can make from regular sports offers and how much you can make taking advantage of Casino offers.

The above graphs show that the average trend over the long-term will indeed show you some excellent profits, just as you would expect if you were doing regular matched betting offers.

The important thing to remember is that you may have short periods of time where you go down or up on the offers but EV (Expected Value) will always work in your favour so if you keep going past these times you’ll end up getting some fantastic results!

Just like regular matched betting the key is to always remember the ‘big picture’ to not expect the journey to be linear. But don’t just take my word for it, have a look at some of the posts from people using the Casinos section on Profit Accumulator!

If you decide you just want to focus on casino / slot offers then have a look at our review of Bonus Accumulator which gives you all the tools you need to make money LONG TERM from those sort of offers.

Create an Online Course

I remember many years ago being told ‘Never give information away for free’ and Online courses (and charging for them!) seem to be more popular than ever so a lot of people seem to be heeding that advice!

Websites such as Teachable and Udemy offer you a pre-existing platform to create your course and then market it. What you are teaching doesn’t even have to be digital. You could have knowledge of plumbing, basic car maintenance, flat pack furniture hacks or anything else. If you can get it all down you can sell that information!

Get paid to deliver food and drink via Beelivery

A lot of people during Coronavirus will be taking advantage of Amazon home deliveries or getting their food shopping delivered straight to their home instead of going to the store. Sometimes you might need some items more urgently and that’s where a service like Beelivery comes in which as you can imagine, during an outbreak like this is more important than ever and gives you the chance to earn money delivering items from your nearby convenience store.

Customer can order from 1000 typical convenience store products. When a customer places an order a message is sent to a Beelivery driver via the app and will ask if you would like to accept or reject the delivery job.

Once you have accepted this task you have 90 minutes to call at your nearest convenience store, buy the items and deliver them to the customer.

The average order tends to be around £10-£20 which you are reimbursed for the following day after a completed delivery, PLUS the relevant delivery payment which is usually around £7-£20.

To be a Beelivery Driver you must own an Android smartphone or iPhone; be over 18, and own a bike, car, scooter or motorcycle. There are no set hours, you just agree to jobs when you want to. What we are seeing is a lot of people who are volunteering to help the NHS during Coronavirus by delivering meds and combining it with this opportunity to help bring food and drink to those that are isolating.

Make T-Shirt Designs

Now you don’t actually have to be that creative or even good at designs when it comes to t-shirts. You just need to be clever when it comes to slogans. One of the easiest creative ways to make money from your ideas is via Amazon Merch.

Merch by Amazon makes it easy for you to create, promote and sell your branded merchandise with no risk and no up-front costs. You simply supply the artwork, choose the product type and colour, and then promote your products in your app, blog or on social media. Amazon takes care of the rest, including production, sales, shipping and creating a product page on Amazon – all at no cost to you.
