5 Opportunities to make money in the crisis with remote work
Excel Spreadsheets

The world is experiencing a difficult time in terms of work and we do not know how long this situation will last. In reality, it is even difficult to think whether, after all this, we will return to normal or find a new normal.

In a crisis of this magnitude, caused by a global pandemic, it is natural to think that much can change in our daily lives. More home-office, more indoor activities, fewer restaurants and more deliveries. What will be the new habits of society?

It is difficult to speculate. What is certain at this point is that it is not easy for anyone. Many people are not even able to quarantine, let alone think about opportunities.

There are Brazilian workers who, if they do not leave home every day, do not eat. If you are not in that group, consider yourself already a privileged one.

You have a minimum of peace of mind to endure some time in this situation. But make no mistake. Even if the quarantine ends tomorrow, it does not mean that the economy will normalize the day after tomorrow.

The implications as I said can be lasting. Each one is doing what it can, and a good alternative at this point may be to start creating some extra income options.

To help in this regard, we at LIGHT we separate 5 opportunities to make money from remote work in the crisis.

1. Sell business models on the LUZ website

5 Opportunities to make money during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond

First, there was no way we could not sell our fish. The initiative started as a “spreadsheet market” and today we accept any type of model: powerpoint presentations, business reports, contract templates, handouts, etc.

The only requirement is that it was developed by you, so as not to hurt anyone's copyright. Today we already have more than 1.000 salespeople on the site and some of them receive an extra income of almost R $ 2.000 per month.

The most impressive thing is that, since they are digital products, the income is practically passive. You will put your products up for sale and only need to interact with customers when they have questions about the product. See more details:

  • How to register? - Directly on program page
  • How to bill? - 50% commission per sale
  • What is the income potential? - unlimited, but today the best salespeople receive close to R $ 2.000 per month (without actively working)
  • What kind of work? - totally passive. You just need to create and register your models
  • What are the program rules? - check here.
  • How to train me? - if you don't know Excel very well, basic and advanced LUZ courses are free until June 2020. There is also a powerpoint course.

2. Sell freelance services on Upwork

5 Opportunities to make money during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond

I use a lot upwork to find any type of professional. From a freelancer to optimize my marketing campaigns facebook ads, even a Portuguese to Mandarin translator.

If you have any skills that can be "salable", it is worth creating a freelancer profile on upwork, for example, English-Portuguese translation.

The work is active and there is a need to prospect within the site, looking for interesting projects and making proposals. The language can also be a barrier for those who do not speak English, although there are works in Portuguese.

In the beginning it will be more difficult, because you are not yet a valued professional, so my suggestion is that you start charging very little and make it clear that you are doing this to create a portfolio.

  • How to register? - na freelancer registration page
  • How to bill? - for every customer you get, they charge a 20% commission on the first $ 500 billed, 10% up to $ 10.000 and 5% thereafter.
  • What is the income potential? - it depends on the price you can charge and how many projects you can play simultaneously. But I have already met very "premium" professionals, who charge more than $ 100 an hour.
  • What kind of work? - active. It is the provision of services, only intermediated by the upwork. You also need to close your own projects.
  • What are the program rules? - check here.
  • How to train me? - millions of possibilities. Any skill specific product can be “sold” on upwork. Just choose an area and start courses in it.

3. Sell freelance services on Workana

5 Opportunities to make money during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond

A Workana it is very similar to Upwork, but with a greater presence in Portuguese. You can register a profile there to sell any of your skills in short or long term projects.

  • How to register? - na freelancer registration page
  • How to bill? - for every customer you get, they charge a 20% commission on the first $ 300 billed, 10% up to $ 3.000 and 5% thereafter.
  • What is the income potential? - it depends on the price you can charge and how many projects you can play simultaneously.
  • What kind of work? - active. It is the provision of services, only intermediated by the workana. You will need to go after and close your own projects. You can also find face-to-face jobs, such as projects for photographers.
  • What are the program rules? - you will be able to answer all your questions on the their help section.
  • How to train me? - millions of possibilities. Any skill can be “sold” on workana. Just choose an area and specialize in it.

4. Sell freelance services on Fiverr

5 Opportunities to make money during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond

O Fiverr it has a dynamics very similar to upwork and workana, but they have always been stronger in digital marketing and content production: design, writing, music, video, etc.

The language again can be a barrier for non-English speakers.

  • How to register? - na freelancer registration page
  • How to bill? - 80% of each transaction stays with the freelancer.

  1. Everything that is related to online sales and telework is under a boom.
    There is too much supply of services and probably low prices

  2. I already bought some LUZ spreadsheets and they are very good, mainly because I am entitled to updates when they happen. This is a great differentiator.
    But I notice that in the market there are practically no WORD courses, it may seem simple, but it has a lot of hidden tricks that with a good training, the productivity of employees could grow a lot.

    I found this article sensational, congratulations to the team.
