The recent Coronavirus pandemic has proved that many roles can be done from home, making it easier than ever for workers to request this practice in the future.

It has also caused chaos for many companies and their staff, with many struggling to make ends meet and facing the possibility of hunting for a new role in these challenging times.

If you’ve lost your job because of the pandemic and are looking for a new adventure, or you just want to take your future into your own hands, then here is a list of some of the business opportunities you can take advantage of from the comfort of your home.

Become A Tutor

Whether you’re a competent Mathematician and want to help students pass their GCSEs, or you can teach adult learners how to play their favourite songs on their new musical instrument, there are a wealth of opportunities on the market for patient, committed tutors.

A Franchise

Starting a new business is exciting, but it also risky, particularly if you have very little business experience. If you want to run your own business using an established idea that already has a loyal customer base, then a franchise is the perfect solution for you. Using an existing franchise will reduce your risk, as you know that the idea works and you will have access to business support when you need it. For example, Franchise Local shows you the franchises for sale across a variety of sectors, so you can review different possible franchising options through their platform.

Use E-commerce To Sell Your Products Online

Creative individuals who want to offer a product can use e-commerce tools to sell their products online. You can share images of your products on your website, and then send the finished solution to your clients through the post. With everyone still uncertain of what’s going to happen to the corporate market going forward, starting an online store is the perfect way to future-proof your business and ensure that you can provide your solutions in a safe way. Online shopping is also on the rise thanks to the virus, meaning that you’ll be able to tap into this lucrative market if you start selling your wares over the internet.

Write Content For Businesses

If you haven’t written much since University, then you might need to practice or take an online writing course before you start offering your services to clients. On the other hand, if you have been writing consistently and have proof that you can create top-quality content, then you can get started right away. Avoid using freelancer platforms, as many of these tend to be designed for customers who want to pay as little as possible. Instead, create a quality portfolio on your website and promote your services using social media and online adverts.

Offer Consulting Services

Specialist consultancy is a booming market, so if you have a specific skill or expertise in a particular sector, then you can offer the benefit of your support to individuals around the world using the internet. You can offer video consultancy, email support, or even phone calls to help your clients.

When starting a consultancy business, you need to make sure that you share evidence of your experience and previous work, so that you can prove your worth to a wide range of potential clients.

This list of opportunities should help driven job seekers to make the most of their current situation and turn a negative into a positive.
