Moms love their children and love to spend as much time as they can with them but unfortunately most of the moms these days are working and miss the opportunity to spend time with their children.
But a home business is a great way to do what they love doing while making money and supporting the family financially.
Here are 9 home businesses any mom can start without any investment so let’s get started.
Blogging is one of the most trending businesses right now as it has already made people millions of dollars online.
Many would say you need to invest some money in blogging to get the Domain Name and Hosting which is true but with blogger.com you can get all of that for free
Although you’ll need to compromise on the full control on your websites look and other stuff but it is a great alternative.
If you want full control over your blog then you can easily get a domain and hosting for 2.75$/ Month from Bluehost which is one of the biggest hosting and domain companies.
Although blogging is a really great business but it needs a lot of patience and quality content to succeed so you’ll need to dedicate at least 3 hrs per day for a year to see massive growth in your blog.
2. Graphics Designing
As all of the businesses are coming online most of them require graphics to be made for their background or their Facebook Page or YouTube Page and what not.
You can easily create such graphics by using free tools like Canvas or using professional tools like Photoshop.
You just need to work that creative mind as it requires a lot of creativity if you want to stand out from the crowd.
You might find this job a bit frustrating at first but once you get the hang of it you can fly through the work.
3. Freelance Writing
As of now, there are millions of blog posts publishing each and every month and not all of the posts are written by the blog owners.
They often hire writers to get blog posts so that they can push out a huge quantity of posts.
Even business owners hire writers to write Product pages, Emails, and Copywriting.
You can easily make 30$ per 1000 words as a freelancer working on sites like Fiverr or Upwork.
If you get hired to companies like textbroker.com or others you’ll be making 0.10$ per word or even more depending on your experience.
With these websites, you’ll be making 100$ per 1000 words which is the best bet.
4. Create Courses on Udemy
Udemy is a great platform to get courses on any topic of your choice for as low as 10$.
These best part about Udemy is that you can create a free account and start uploading without any review system so that anyone can make money.
You can create Courses on anything that is in demand and people are willing to pay to learn it.
To create Courses all you need is a video camera or phone camera and editing software like premiere pro or windows movie maker to edit videos.
You can also start a YouTube channel and upload videos for free and then sell advance courses to people who want to learn more.
You can even make money through ads on YouTube i.e only if your videos get a lot of views
5. Create Ebooks
Same as creating video courses you can create a short Ebook on it and sell it off Amazon’s Kindle platform for free.
This is the best alternative of video courses for camera shy people to make money selling their knowledge.
Amazon will take 30% of commission per sale if you price your book at 2.99$ and if you price it over that the commission increases.
According to Amazon people make the most books sales with prices below 3$.
You can literally create an ebook on any topic as long as it has an audience which loves the same topic.
This is a really great way to make passive income online as you only have to make the book once and sell it over and over without or minimal work.
6. Narrate Audiobooks
While we are at the topic of books let’s not forget the new trend in books and that is audiobooks.
People now prefer to listen to books than actually reading them just to save time.
And to create Audiobooks owners need a good narrator and I think most of the moms are a great story narrator as they are regularly narrating stories to their kids.
Narrators usually make 100s of dollars per narration which is a great amount.
Understanding the need for narration Amazon has launched a great website known as ACX which helps book owners to get narrators.
You can simply signups with a narrator account and choose from 1000s of books that are waiting for narration.
Apply for the job and you’ll need to send a sample which will help the author to decide.
Once you got the job there are 2 really great ways you can get paid.
The first one is really simple, Get a fixed amount on completion and the second is claiming a royalty from every book sale.
This is the option with which most of them go but it only works if the book makes a lot of sales.
You’ll claim 30% royalty and the author will have the rest.
This is another great passive income source as you only need to do the job once and make money over and over.
7. Become a VA
As a VA or Virtual Assistant, you will be given a few tasks to complete and you just need to complete those.
Some of the most common tasks are managing social media, sending emails, customer support and much more.
Business owners are happy paying 1000s of dollars per month to VAs but these days people hire on per task basis but this gives you an opportunity to work for multiple businesses and make more money.
The best part is you can do this all from the comfort of your house while taking care of your children.
8. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is one of the best businesses to start off with.
As an affiliate marketer, you’ll need to sell products online for a commission.
There are a lot of different easy ways you can do it like through blogging, YouTube channel, social media and much more.
Your commission will range from 5% to 70% depending upon the product of your choice.
Digital products like Ebook, E-courses, Softwares and membership sites will offer you commission ranging from 40% to 70%.
Whereas physical products will offer you a commission from 5% to 15% which is reasonable as they have to make the product over and over, unlike digital products which only needs to be created once.
The biggest Affiliate site for physical products is Amazon Associates.
Here is a detailed guide on how you can start affiliate marketing through Pinterest.
9. Web Designing
As we have discussed earlier due to the growth and popularity of the internet every business is coming online.
All of the existing and the new and upcoming businesses need a website and as a Web Designer, you can serve their needs.
A web designer can charge anywhere from a few 100$ to 1000s of dollars for creating a website.
You might be thinking that we need to learn codes to get started but now anyone can design websites with easy to use page builders.
Page builders like Divi and Elementor are a greater example for easy to use Drag and Drop page builders and they are also not that expensive.
In fact Elementor even has a free version which you can use forever but it has a few restrictions.
These page builders are really easy as they are drag and drop so you just need to pick an element and place it and the code is automatically placed.
One can easily create websites using these page builders.
