So many moms email me that they are busy with their household work or with their kids they cannot take a day job, so is there any good ways to how to make money for stay at home moms? I thought about it lot and figured out staying at home and working online is actually the best combination you can have for a successful web business.
So here you go the highly anticipated guide on how to make money for mommies:
Moms Can Make Money as a Freelancer
There is a huge advantage of working as a freelancer, mostly because you can stay at home and can set your own working hours. You don’t have to give a full 8 hour shift every day. Just give it a few hours here, few hours there and you are cool. Maybe you have to take a break and attend your kids; your work will be inside your computer and no boss to shout at you. There are many freelance market places that you can take advantage of. Such website that I recommend is odesk. Lots of stay at home mammas like you work there and get weekly payments through paypal, direct bank deposit, wire transfer and many more.
One benefit for working as a freelancer is that you will be able to get in communication with a real person as your employer. You may have to talk with him/her on the skype, phone, through email and instant messages that will never make you feel bored.
But what you can do on a freelance marketplace, anything and everything that has a genuine demand. You can work as a technical staff, system administrator, web designer (like I do) graphic designer, consultant etc. You choose what you do, when you do, how much you get paid and whom you should work with. There are other freelance websites to try. If odesk seems very crowded then you may also try Elance. If you love working with others and setting your own work hours, then freelancing is the way to make a lot of money for mothers.
Setup a Product Review Website to Make Money Online
This path is a bit time consuming but when you start to see the money coming, it will generate by itself on auto pilot.
What you have to do is to find a product that you love and then find an affiliate program related to it. The best products that sell well are the ones that you personally like to use. Take a look at your dressing table or even your bathroom, I bet you will find at least 10 beauty care products at any given time. These women related products sell well and there are plenty of ladies out there who must be looking for an honest review before they can buy.
Setup a website dedicated to a single product. If the setting up of a website seems too much technical for you, then feel free to download my free guide on setting up a website (it should be on the sidebar on the top right area) Write some honest reviews about the products you are selling. You can also write some tips which will be helpful for everyone. You may also give them tip on where to buy and how to save money. Write at least 10 posts and over time you will see some targeted buyers hitting your site.
Now find an affiliate network that sells these products. Try searching on amazon. Amazon has a good affiliate system in which you can register and sell these products for a 4% commission. The beauty of this system is that you can setup this site, promote it and forget it when it is starting to attract leads. Then you can setup even more websites on other products. This is method that moms can make money from the internet.
Mommies Can Write a Blog and Sell Paid Reviews
Writing a blog takes more time than any other things. So many people will say that you can start a blog today and start to make money from the next day but it is not. In real it takes a lot of time to build a blog, build the hungry audience and the reputation so that you can monetize it. You may start a blog for your own sake. Think about the things that inspire or motivate you. Think about the things that you love or always wanted to do. Such things can be playing violin, writing poetry or making delicious dishes. Think about how you can help other people with your knowledge.
Take an example on a hair dressing blog. This blog will teach people how they can color or cut their hair on their own; or how to make new styles or how to care your hair etc. Think about a topic that will let you write forever. You will never run out of topic. It takes time to build momentum and once you have it you can offer paid advertisements. There is a site called Social Spark. It lets you choose different products and services and write them about on your blog. In return you make money for every paid review.
Moms, Sell an Ebook to Make Money Online
This is one of the classic ways to make money and one method that works till this date. You write an ebook and sell it. Remember I told about writing a blog. Instead of making your content public, restrict it to only the people who purchase it. It can be a how to guide, secret information or even a romance novel. Ebooks are easy to publish and you can publish one from your computer. It’s that simple. I will write an in depth article on how you can easily create an ebook.
Then when you have your ebook, sell it on your website. You can setup a payment processor like PayPal or ClickBank to accept credit cards. There are many other online market places you can sell; one site I can point you to is lulu.com. It takes a small registration charge and then you can sell your book for the rate you choose. It will take an initial effort to sell your first few copies, but once you are done, it will start rolling. That’s a surefire way for work at home moms to make money online.
