5 Great Online Work from Home Ideas for Stay-At-Home Moms 2

Recommended Posts

2. Sell Products Online

If you ever dreamed of opening a retail store, that doesn't have to be put on hold because you're a stay-at-mom. The Internet has made it possible to sell products from any location, including your house. The United States Postal Service even offers Carrier Pickup services that will pick your packages at your house making it simple to run a retail business from home. Your children can even help out with the work from home business by packing orders and getting them ready to mail.

As far as products, you can sell products you make, or buy wholesale or used items for resale. Getting your store online is easier and more affordable than ever. Building an ecommerce website doesn't require a great deal of expense or coding knowledge anymore. Or you can tap into commerce services such as Amazon and eBay.

3. Sell Information Products Online

Millions of people go online everyday to find information. In many cases, they're willing to pay for it. You can tap into this by creating your information products and selling them online.

Information products come in many forms. One of the easiest to create is an eBook or print book, and sell it online. If you're interested in book publishing but aren't sure about writing, you can hire ghostwriter. Selling eBooks, in particular, is ideal for the busy mom, because purchase and delivery can be done automatically, saving you the hassle of shipping. But you can even sell print books through Amazon and other online retailers if you use a print-on-demand service.

Other information products include online course, seminars, trainings, printables (i.e. planners), and more.

4. Start a Niche Blog

A blog is a fun and great way to make money from a topic you know and/or love. This is especially true if many others know and love it as well.

While you offer the information for free, there are many options for making money, including Google AdSense and other ad feed programs, that will place ads on your site, and then you can get paid when people click on the ads (but don't you click on them or that will violate the Terms of Service).

Other money-making options include affiliate products, selling ad space, or selling your own products. 

The trick to success in blogging is through internet marketing to build traffic. The more targeted traffic you get to your site, the more likely you'll make money. 

5. Market Affiliate Products and Services

Marketing affiliate products and services is basically getting paid to make referrals to other business. It's word-of-mouth marketing that can make you money.

One great aspect of affiliate marketing is that you don't have to sell or deliver products. The most highly paid affiliate marketers either have a niche blog (see above) or use a squeeze page and email newsletter funnel system to promote special affiliate links. When your link is used, you can earn a commission or flat rate from the referral. 

Affiliate marketing only works if the people you're making the referral to know and trust you. To do that, your blog readers, newsletter subscribers, and even social media followers, need to get more than just ad links from you. Instead, you need to also share helpful tips and resources.
