Getting another job in times like these is also challenging. By the looks of it, even if the lockdown ends sometime soon, it will take some time for the companies to start and get running.

Take a look at these online jobs that can help you make some money!

Websites such as StudySoup, OneClass, OmegaNotes, Nexus Notes, NotesGen, and Stuvia can help you match with people who might want to buy those notes. These sites will even take photos of handwritten notes.

Sell your old belongings

Is it room all messed up? Too many things lying around? Well, if you don’t them, why keep them when getting rid of them could fetch you some money?

This can’t be said enough. India is in itself an art. There are hundreds of different artworks practiced in every Indian state. In fact, many of them have been tagged as a ‘lost-art’. If you are familiar with any such ‘lost-art’, you can revive them and making online videos and teaching it to the community. 

If not a video, you could make a presentation or better write a book! Platforms like Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) platform can help you publish your works in less than 5 minutes! Udemy is another helpful platform for e-courses.
