Being a mom or becoming a mom is a tough job. With that many people looking to do something on the side, you have to admit that the cost of living is growing faster than the minimum wage. More and more people are finding themselves looking for ways to make money from home online. Some are just looking to supplement their income. Others are looking to replace an existing or recently lost a job.
So let’s go over a few of the ways that you could be earning money as a stay at home moms.
Become a Social Media Manager
Social Media Managers have become popular since the explosion of social media over the last decade. A social media manager is exactly that; a manager. So if you were to become a social media manager, your job would entail sending/receiving friend requests, posting multiple times per day, engaging and reading incoming comments, etc. You’d think that this is something that anyone could do, but there are many successful entrepreneurs and business owners out there that are gladly willing to pay someone to handle these mundane tasks on their behalf.
Learn How to Trade Forex and Cryptocurrency
It amazes me how few people have even heard of Forex. Forex is an acronym for Foreign Exchange. With Forex you are buying and selling currencies just like people buy and sell commodities like corn, coffee, and orange juice. This is an invaluable skill to learn because when you have it, you can write your paycheck. Just keep in mind that this is considered the same as gambling in the eyes of Uncle Sam, so you will have to pay some hefty capital gains taxes on anything that you pull in.
Join a Network Marketing Company
Although network marketing companies tend to get a bad rap, most people are oblivious to the fact that network marketing is a 100+ billion dollar per year industry. More money per year is generated from network marketing than from all of the professional sports in the United States each year, combined! A network marketing company gives you the chance to become the CEO of your organization from day number one.
Get Started With e-Commerce
You can also get involved with e-Commerce. You know, things like eBay, Amazon, and even Shopify. This is where you have yourself a virtual business. Almost everyone has some items around the house that are just taking up space. e-Commerce is a great way to make money working from home if you’re not a people person and you’re not cut out for the sales life.
Get Involved in Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate Marketing is all about selling other people’s products/services. Virtually every company known to man has an affiliate program of some sort these days. For example, if you refer someone to Time Warner, they will pay you. By simply sharing products and services that you use every day you can earn a percentage every time someone purchases from your affiliate link.
There are many paying affiliate programs, here is a best of list:
Which One Of These Methods Are Best?
While all of the above methods are great, there isn’t one that’s “best.”However, if you plan on making money from home as a stay at home mom, you will need to receive the proper training. Otherwise, it could really take years for you to learn and become a master of online marketing.
