You may think it’s difficult to find jobs for stay at home moms, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. When you hear that it’s hard, you’re most likely hearing it from people who’ve never tried to look.
Have you heard any of these things:
- Companies don’t want to hire people to work from home because people can’t be trusted and will abuse that benefit.
- When people “work from home”, they don’t actually do any work. They do their laundry instead. No company wants to hire someone to do their laundry.
- All the work from home jobs are scams. You can’t trust any of them.
- You want to do WHAT? Are you crazy??
(Ok, I kind of just threw that last one in there. Because people do think you’re crazy when you try something that’s different.)
Well, all of those things that you’ve been hearing are complete BULL! There are jobs for stay at home moms out there, and they are good, legitimate ways to earn an income.
Open your mind and see all the different possibilities. Just because a corporation doesn’t have any jobs where you can work at home, doesn’t mean that there’s not anything out there.
In fact, I’m going to give you 3 shockingly easy things you can do to make an income from home. And the best thing about working for yourself is that you can choose to do 1, or all 3. It’s all up to you!
- Affiliate Marketing
: Ok, maybe this one is pretty obvious, but there are so many things you can do with eBay, it’s ridiculous. I don’t even know all the possibilities, but I know there are a lot! For instance, you can sell your extra non-used things. You can go to garage sales and pick up items there to sell. You can become an eBay affiliate and sell other people’s things from your blog or website. You can sell coupons. I know someone who buys things when they go on clearance and then sells them on eBay. The ideas are limitless. And eBay is so easy to get started!
: Affiliate marketing is probably the easiest home-based business to start up. And it takes very little capital (in fact, you can start with $0!). It does take time to learn many of the strategies, but if it’s something that interests you, you will pick it up very easily. Basically, the role of an affiliate marketer is to match up a group of people who have a problem of some sort, with a solution that can help solve their problem. Affiliate marketing is truly a win-win-win situation. The merchant (the company who has the product) wins by getting extra sales without having to do any extra work. The only thing they need to do is pay the affiliate a commission. The affiliate wins because they don’t have to actually develop a product or hold any inventory. They get commission on a product that’s not even theirs. The consumer wins because they are presented with a solution to their problem.
: You have probably heard a lot about blogging, and you probably have visited some blogs. They are so easy to get started, it’s not even funny! You just write about things that interest you, get some followers, and add AdSense ads (the ads that you see on the side of blogs, or even your email) and you get money every time someone clicks on one of those ads. Having a blog (or 2, or 3) is really fun. Having fun and making money? Isn’t that how it’s supposed to be?
