It must be stated and universally understood is that being a stay-at-home mom is truly a job in itself. It is one of the most fulfilling positions that a mom could ever have and every minute of every day, provides a new and memorable experience. But if you want to earn extra income while home, here are a few great ways to do so.
1. Your Opinion Pays
Online surveys are a great way to earn money for your opinions without sacrificing a lot of your time. Companies pay to know what you think and they are doing so with online surveys. Payment usually comes I the form of gift cards to popular retailers.
2. Website Evaluation
Do you have about a half-hour to spare and evaluate websites? If so, you could earn $10-$20 for a few minutes of work. All that’s really required is a computer with a microphone and internet accessibility. You’re matched with work based on your pre-entered profile and use a screen recorder supplied by the hiring agency, such as UserTesting to record your views of the website.
3. Become a Virtual Assistant
This is a very popular stay-at-home option that works great for parents and students. You work the hours that are best for you and the idea is to offer virtual assistance to those who need them. Appointment scheduling, price comparison and contacting clients are among the list of tasks to be performed by virtual assistants.
4. Become a Blogger
This is a job that everyone wishes they could tackle and you really can as a stay-at-home parent. The blog content doesn’t have to be child or parent related, as you can choose to write about whatever you’re passionate about in your blog. Create your blog on a free platform such as WordPress but pay a small fee for hosting. Utilize a service such as Google AdSense to advertise companies on your blog and this is how the money is made.
5. Amazon Kindle
I’m sure as a stay-at-home parent you’ve come up with some great material for a book. Write an eBook to publish on Amazon Kindle for free. You get a percentage of the profits and Amazon does too.
