Online searches for products and services has gone up considerably. As we work from home and stay inbound with our families, searches for products to relax, be entertained, stay fit, DIY materials or hobby materials have gone up. Garden related, backyard Renos, paint jobs, and cleaning products are having unprecedented sales.
People who already have passions or interests are stocking up to spend more time on new projects. Knitting, art materials, cooking related queries are flooding Google.
If you have a passion or are very good at something hands-on we can put up a landing page for you and promote your knowledge ( as an eBook) or if you can put together a kit to sell online we can set it up for you. This could become a profitable side business and something that you enjoy doing.
