The No. 1 in Jobs to Work from Home for Moms – Become a Blogger

Blogging is the hottest trend of today in work from home for moms. And you don’t require any special skills to do that. You just need to identify what attracts you, what you wish to write about. When you get to know that, just start writing.

Now, how to create a blog? Here are some steps:

Step 1: Identify your niche, a topic that you are passionate about, and that makes you start writing.

Step 2: Select your hosting provider (who will host your blog on their servers so you don’t have anything to worry about) and purchase a domain name. Some of the leading hosting and domain name providers today are:

  • Bluehost
  • WordPress
  • GoDaddy

Step 3: Design your blog using the hosting provider feature, use freely available themes, and make it look pretty.

I prefer Bluehost as it is One of the best options these days among hosting providers. You can also check it out:

With an easy to use interface, it allows you to quickly get your website up and running. It is one of the most economical options while simultaneously providing advanced features and security. You do not require any experience. It is actually for the beginner level. I have used it, so, I know it. I like Bluehost for its simplicity, features shared hosting packages.

Step 4: Go and write your first blog post about anything, actually anything, and hit the publish button!

Step 5: Promote your blog, be consistent (really really important) and follow a regular publishing schedule.

You can earn from your blog through Ad Networks (such as Google AdSense and Media.net) or use affiliate marketing (through Amazon, Flipkart, etc.). And, I tell you, I have seen bloggers who have handsome earnings and they are their boss!

Option No. 2 – Become a Freelancer

Freelancing is again the second hottest trend in jobs to work from home for moms. If you have some expertise, use it. It has become the most demanding career, especially during this pandemic. And, it can never make you unemployed.

freelancer is a person who works for himself. You don’t work for any company but you. You are self-employed. Companies give you projects but you work as contractors for them.

You can provide a variety of services as a freelancer. It can be content creation, web application development, data entry jobs, online tutoring, translation services, proof-reading, graphic designing, etc. etc. etc. The options are endless! Some wonderful sites that you explore for this category are:

  1. upwork.com
  2. fiverr.com
  3. freelancer.com
  4. peopleperhour.com
  5. guru.com

These are the top 5 sites that give work to freelancers. The employers post projects and you just have to apply. If you get selected, the job is yours and you get the pay!! I have seen freelancers grow from $5/hr rates to $25/hr. Isn’t it luring?

Option No. 3 – Affiliate Marketing

Here, you are the marketer. The good thing? It is free to join!

Through Affiliate Marketing, you ask others to buy a company’s product. What do you get in return? The company pays you some commission. For example, if you want others to buy a laptop by HP, you can drop a link to it on your blog. Your followers will click on that link to buy it and you get a commission on each sale.

How to become an Affiliate Marketer?

Step 1: Sign up for the affiliate program. Some of the major affiliate programs in India are Flipkart, Amazon, BGM India, BIGROCK, etc.

Step 2: Get the affiliate link to the product you wish to mention in your blog.

Step 3: Promote it, convince readers to purchase it, and get paid. Simple

Option No. 4: Become a YouTuber/VLogger

Everyone likes videos today and 80% of internet data use is videos. If you like creating videos, then this option is definitely for you working mom. Identify your niche and create videos. Videos can be on anything – subject, skill, or hobby (cooking, art, gardening, music, instrument). Your choice!! Make yourself a brand. Just take a look at one such video (by Don’t Memorize):

This video is so powerful that it can ultimately make your viewers subscribe to you. The channel makers are already established. Or take a look at this:

They are new but they have got a wonderful concept. Your idea can be anything. You can be a tutor or just post updates on your life. Simple!!

When your YouTube channel gets decent views, you can be part of YouTube’s partner program and start earning.

Option No. 5 – Sell Photos

Do it if photography is your thing!! What you have to do?  Have a decent Camera, click pictures, and make them a source of your income! There are several sources where you can post your picture, the two most popular one being:

  1. istockphoto
  2. Shutterstock

They also allow you to further refer photographers and earn commissions every time their photographs are purchased. How much you can earn? Rs. 400-500 of every purchase made. Not bad!!

Option No. 6: Online Teaching (popular in jobs to work from home for moms)

If you are a teacher (:) like me) or have a passion for teaching, then this option is certainly for you. Everyone today, be it a learner or a tutor, is exploring this option. So, why are you lagging? Go for it!

Where to teach and earn? Again, there several platforms for online teaching. Some of the popular ones being:

  • Unacademy
  • Chegg India
  • Vedantu
  • Toppr

I can tell you by my experience that Vedantu particularly, pays even up to Rs. 75000/month to its tutors. So, it is surely a work from home for moms option to try.

Option No. 7: Internship

Yeah, you heard that right!! Get training and still be paid. If you think you lag in some particular expertise or you wish to restart your career, an internship is an option to try for. Don’t think that it is just for the students. You can be an intern too. It can make you gain experience before starting your actual work. That’s good!

Now, what is internship? It is a kind of experience offered by an employer that gives you exposure to the working environment in your field of study. You can apply as an intern in accounts, designing, sales, digital marketing, content writing… there are many options to explore.

internshala.com is one such online platform that can help you get internships in your field of choice. So, just go and give it a try!

Option No. 8: Social Media Influencer (attractive in jobs to work from home for moms)

Ah!! Who is not on social media these days? And who doesn’t like followers? If you too like this, then why not use that to your benefit?

What you need is to just establish your credibility on social media, have a large number of followers, and there you go! Bingo!

Now, the question is how to earn through it? And the answer to this is that there are unlimited options. Some of the prominent ones today being used by social media influencers are through Ads, product mentions, affiliate marketing, selling photos, writing reviews, and as social media brand ambassadors. And once you setup your account with a good number of followers, you can even sell it. People today are luring for such accounts!! A very interesting option to try for 🙂

Option No. 9: Surveys and Reviews

Are you the kind of person who loves trying new products and wishes to guide everyone on which one to buy? Well, I am! And if you are too, try this one. We ladies are so excited always to buy and try. We are shopaholics. Don’t you think we should use it for our benefit? And if there can be some earning through it, we won’t mind it 🙂

So, start doing surveys or writing reviews. Many sites today give you money for this. And due to the ongoing competition, companies are paying just to get good reviews and ratings. Once you set up yourself, they can even pay you huge amounts just for your one review! Amazing!

The only thing you need to be careful about is that you go for the right company and not the fraudsters.

Some options you can explore are ysenseprizeRebel, or Amazon surveys. 

Option No. 10: Virtual Assistant 

You can even work as a virtual assistant while working at your home. They are paid good hourly rates too. You can choose your field – admin, technical social media, etc.

All you just need is your internet or phone and you assist (technical, administrative or creative) your clients. To work as a virtual assistant, you can apply through various freelancing websites (as I mentioned above).
