Are you currently sat at home looking for something productive to do? Or are you simply looking for a reliable and easy way to make some extra cash?

Here’s how to make money in self-isolation:

The Spread Of Coronavirus

We’re sadly living in troubled times at the moment with coronavirus running rampant throughout the world. Those living with the virus may have gone into self-isolation while they recover.

Of course, this is exactly what they should do to stop the spread of the virus. And it’s also recommended for their recovery. But it’s not just those who’ve caught coronavirus that have gone into self-isolation.

Many others are doing the same thing in an effort to avoid infection. Especially those who live in densely populated areas where the virus has already struck.

Schools and workplaces are all looking for ways to work remotely, but for some this isn’t possible. Coronavirus has led to many people being sent home from work, abruptly cutting them off from earning money.

If you’re one of these people, or you’ve decided to self-isolate in an effort to ‘ride out the storm’ then the good news is you can still make money in self-isolation.

Online Surveys Can Help

You can make money in self-isolation by taking advantage of websites like Swagbucks. Here you can complete online surveys in your spare time. This is by far the best and most reliable way to earn money from Swagbucks.

Each time successfully complete a survey you will be rewarded with a set amount of ‘Swagbucks’ these build up over time and eventually lead to cash rewards.

There are different types of surveys and each pays out a different amount of Swagbucks upon completion. Daily surveys take a little longer than most, but their rewards are higher, awarding around 200 Swagbucks per survey. The smaller ones pay out around 40 Swagbucks but are quicker to complete.

The beauty of this platform is it can be done anywhere! You can do surveys on your phone, tablet or computer. You can also make money in self-isolation by doing as many surveys as you like. The more you complete the more you’ll earn.

A word of advice

Swagbucks is a great platform to earn a little extra money. It’s also an incredibly useful way to make money in self-isolation if you’re stuck for something useful to do. You may not have a choice but to stay inside your home while coronavirus spreads, so might as well get paid!

The platform isn’t going to be something you can do full time, so don’t quit your job and commit to Swagbucks full-time. It’s intended to be a supplementary income generator as opposed to a full-time job. But there is certainly money to be made.

Finally, we also recommend creating a new email account for Swagbucks instead of using one you already have. Once you join the site will send your email address out to its survey providers, so you’ll receive a lot of emails from them. This is why it’s best to have a new email address for this and this only. Keeping things separate.

Once set up on Swagbucks you’ll be free to start completing surveys and making money in self-isolation. You can even keep doing it once this pandemic has passed.
