Being a business owner comes with so many benefits: freedom, flexibility, independence… and beyond those, the internet gives moms opportunities that may be difficult to come by in the real world. Several regular businesses require more than active moms can offer because it means giving up on too much of their precious time with their families.
So, are you a busy mom looking for ways to make money online? Then take a look at the following options.
Start a Blog
If you love to write, then starting a blog is for you. Being a blogger comes with so many benefits. You can schedule your time in a way that best suits you – giving you the chance to work at your own pace.
Plus, you don’t need much to start – a reliable computer, stable internet supply, and the subject matter you want to blog about.
Blogging allows you to create a website to publish materials about subjects you feel comfortable with or have strong opinions about. Over time, as you gain followers and readers, your blog would generate a sizable income for you.
Start an eCommerce Store
The e-commerce industry is booming, as millions of products and service providers take advantage of their online platforms to reach a more comprehensive number of potential clients.
Setting up an e-commerce platform is not complicated. There are several platforms already available (such as Shopify, WooCommerce, Squarespace or Wix), with each platform having its pros and cons.
There are also different yearly and monthly costs, depending on your needs, but you can always start on smaller monthly plans in the beginning before moving on to annual plans.
One of the best ways to get started in e-commerce is to learn the art of dropshipping because you don’t have to purchase any inventory upfront.
Create an Online Shop
Unlike an e-commerce store, an online shop or store is a virtual store where you can sell your handmade crafts.
That means, if you are an artisan or love creating marketable things, then you should consider starting an online shop to help spread your business all over the world.
However, it is essential to take enough time to conduct thorough research about the different online shop platforms available before making a selection.
Print on Demand options like RedBubble, Society6, Printful or Printify are worth looking into and Etsy offers a great way to get yourself set up in no time, with no money down. Did you know that you could also sell your crafts on eBay?
Depending on the type of products you plan to sell, some platforms may offer better features and terms than others.
Additionally, you should ensure a potential market for the products you want to sell to avoid starting a shop that only a few people are interested in, otherwise, you won’t stand to make too much profit.
Become an Online Coach
Online coaching is currently one of the most trending businesses online. There are coaches for almost any field you can think of – relationships, life coaching, fitness, nutrition, you name it.
The most important thing is that you have the right training to set up your online coaching practice. Even if you do not have any training at the moment, there are countless online courses available to pick from – both free and paid.
Take the time to learn and train yourself first, in a field you love or are passionate about. Once done, you can create a blog or website and start your coaching journey.
