21st September 2019


Stay Home Moms Work


So, you want to be a work from home mom.  But do stay home moms make money?  If so, what exactly are the options for a mom to make money at home.  Also how to work at home with a young family to look after as well?


stay home moms can make money


Unfortunately, there are scams everywhere.  Some you may have heard of seem too good to be true and I’m afraid that the highest percentage of them usually are.  You will find that they are promoted as Get Rich Quick Schemes.  Schemes is a good description because they are promoted by Schemers and Fraudsters who are only out to relieve you of your money.  A lot of women lose money before they even find a legitimate opportunity because of those scams.


Below, you’ll find a list of popular work from home options. I have outlined the benefits and the drawbacks. What may be great for one woman may not even be of interest to another.


It goes without saying that of course you must research thoroughly before signing up to anything. Yes, there are a lot of great, legitimate possibilities out there waiting for you, but you might have to say ‘No’ to a few first before you find the perfect stay home mom jobs or businesses to choose from one that will be right up your street.


Here is the How To’s And Why’s Info.


How…. Make Money From The Internet


Lets start with –


Direct Sales (MLM)

Why?  Because where else can you get a business in a box? Seriously, the products have already been made and tested, all the marketing has been created for you, and you are set up on the road to management if you wish. You can see why Direct Sales can be a great way to make money, especially if you find a product, sponsor and company that you love to work with!


Why it might not be for you: If the thought of sales makes you want to throw up, you might want to consider other options such as…


Internet Auctions

Why?  Because it doesn’t get much simpler than online auctions.

Sell your worn clothing or used toys. Or, if you’ve got a knack for pricing, you might find some great items at a garage sale that you can turn over for a profit on online auctions. Ebay is a great place to sell your stuff and buy cheaply and sell later on for profit.


Why it might not be for you: Is your house already too small for you and your family? If you don’t have room to store stuff, then online auctions might not be the business for you.


Moving on to…


Start Home Business


Why?  Because no matter what your interest is, you can start a home business. You can sell your own product(s) or promote for the big online companies such as Amazon, Clickbank, and CJ to name just three.  It goes without saying that the best products or services are the ones that people are looking for that makes life easier for them.  Moms can target other moms because they know what moms are looking for on a daily basis so really its a win win for all concerned.

Therefore whether you’re considering making your own crafts to sell online or becoming an affiliate, if you’ve got the entrepreneurial spirit, then go for it!


Why it might not be for you: Starting from scratch can be a lot of work with little pay in the beginning. My advice  –  really invest a lot of time and energy into research, if you are considering this option.


The next one goes hand in hand with a home business.


Internet Marketing


Why?  because of the low start up cost and a lot of flexibility. Internet Marketing as an affiliate (selling products online or promoting other companies products, or providing an online service) really is a great option for a lot of moms.


internet marketing advertising


Why it might not be for you: Internet Marketing has a learning curve just like any other type of business. Anyone who’s ever had a website knows that “if you build it they will come” is not necessarily true.


You have to promote, test, and learn all the time if you want to become a success in Internet Marketing. It is definitely possible and it is a great option.  However don’t go into it thinking you don’t need to invest time, perhaps a little money and yourself in your business. There is ‘Work’ involved.


Last but by no means least we come to that old favorite


Surveys For Cash


Why?  Because there really are companies that will pay you to take surveys. However in all honesty, you aren’t going to get rich taking surveys.  In most cases you’ll spend a lot of time for little money although you can be rewarded with some great Freebies.


make money online surveys


So, if you enjoy hanging out on the computer and think it would be fun to do some surveys while you’re chatting with your friends on Social Media Sites then it isn’t a bad way to make some extra money here and there. Just be sure to sign up with a free email account (gmail or yahoo are the obvious choices) so you don’t get flooded with useless Spam offers!


Why it might not be for you: If time is short or you need to make decent money for your family, then spend your time on something else. Surveys aren’t going to pay your bills. Also, there are some scams that charge you for a list of surveys, so be careful out there in survey land.  You’e the one that gets paid for the surveys and not the other way round!


The Best Way To Make Money Online For – YOU!


The above examples are just a few of the many options to make money from home.  


how to work at home and


As I’m in the work from home business my first choice is, and was a home based online business.  However you must choose what you believe is the right and best way earn money online for you.  Follow your heart, but don’t forget to use your head as well. You can actually get started on the path today to make your dreams come true.


I wish you every success whatever you choose to do but if you have some spare time then why not click through to these web pages that explains why you should choose to work with your own home business rather than a JOB.  Success can be achieved, but you wont know until you give it a go. Give it a go today!

  2. Have been involved in a few MLMs and as a matter of fact we are right now, just for the great products mostly at this point. You are correct that you need to make sure to investigate everything before getting into it. We are currently trying internet marketing and are having a good time with it. We did try the surveys and they turned out to be just too time consuming for us and so we stopped them. All in all I think that you have covered so much here and seem to be right on with your info, so thank you and keep it up.

    1. Hi Free4Life.

      Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.

      I personally don’t bother with MLM because there are too many scam ones.  You should read my blog on the subject

      On the other hand Internet marketing is a pretty safe bet if you want to make money from home or indeed in your spare time away from a 9 to 5 job.  It is of course great for moms who have to stay at home to look after the little ones.

      Lots of members at wealthy affiliate eventually make more money than they do or ever did in their ‘Normal’ job and you could easily do the same.

      Of course it takes work, dedication and total focus on what your goal is but you will get there in the end.

      You should visit my website again and you will go away with lots of tips and advice that will surely help you in your online efforts.

      Thank you for this visit and now its onwards and upwards to your eventual success.

    Great explanation. I am employed in my country by the government, have a decent salary, but I have discovered something, no salary will ever earns you enough freedom to enjoy with your family, so finding work from home programs is a great move even if you are at work. Nobody will pay you what you are worth except yourself. You are the only one who knows what you are worth.

    I have signed up with your #1 recommendation, I am in the process of familiarizing with it, I have also bookmarked your website. 

    Thank you so much for such great info

  5. I couldn’t find much for stay at home dads, but I’m glad I came across your site because it is obvious that your recommendation for Wealthy Affiliate applies to me just as well. I’ll be taking you up on your offer because there seems to be a very active community and up-to-date training. The most important thing for me when learning something completely new like this, is having the ability to get help right away. They even have 24/7 chat to get instant answers. Thanks

    1. Hi Lev and thank you for taking time to leave a comment, much appreciated.

      I have other articles on this site that mentions all kinds of people who want to work from home and of course dads are in there as well.

      In this article my target audience is women with young children simply because they are in the majority when it comes to parents who stay at home.

      Yes Wealthy Affiliate does cater for everyone as well not matter what your staus is or where you live in the world.

      Yes there is also 24/7, 365 days a year help and support and again no matter where in the world you live.

      I have to add that the highest percentage stay for a long time and I myself have been a member for over four years now and have no intention of leaving.

      You will also receive two websites at no charge and they will be hosted for you on the internet at no cost to you as well.

      So Lev, if your dream is to work for yourself working from home with your own business, then wealthy affiliate will help you achieve your dream.

  6. Hi Robert,

    There are so many options today how to make income from home today so person gets easily lost in them. Everybody has to definitely make a great amount of research before starting anything and even then it is learning process.

    Do you have any favourite survey company?

    Thank you for the great article.

    1. Hello Andrea

      Thank you so much for your response to my article for all those moms who would like to earn an income from the net.

      My own two married daughters have you ng children and almost every day they tell me what a great dad I am for pointing them in the direction of the company I work with.

      They have been involved with it for about 3 months and already they are seeing some money from their efforts.

      The system does work but as I said you must be prepared to put in the time and effort and with my two girls only having a few hours during the day to work at their business they realized early on that yes, what you get out of it is comparable to what you are prepared to put into it.

      In the past I am been involved in a small way with Swagbucks

      I did earn some money from them but as I said being just a little involved I could have earned more.

      That link above does have information on it as well as a video so perhaps if you are interested you could try it.

      Thank you for taking the time to read my article and who knows but I might see you on the inside of Wealthy Affiliate.

      If you do join then make sure you look me up and I will help you all I can.

      Have an awesome day.
