I come across talented Moms all the time. Moms who sew baby slings, nursing clothing, cloth diapers.... Moms who make their own herbal skin care, healing balms, and the like. (I’m pretty envious of women who are crafty like this!)
Or maybe they are really good at designing their home school curriculum or writing interesting lesson plans. I know Moms with large families of grown children who could make a million bucks if they wrote a book with their parenting success secrets!
Sometimes I will ask these women if they’ve ever thought about taking their interest or hobby to the Internet to earn some income with it. I usually get responses like: “I don’t know the first thing about how to build a website.” or “I wouldn’t have any idea how to market my business online.”
Yet, you may have a ton of knowledge in your head that could make you money on the world wide web. Or maybe you have a creative skill like sewing. Even if you don’t have a physical product to sell, you can still make money online marketing other people's products, either through Direct Sales, Affiliate Marketing or Drop Shipping.
Why not get the knowledge out of your head and into a business that could earn you some cash!
Building a business on the Internet isn't difficult like many Moms assume. If you don't know how to build a website, you can use a "What you see is what you get" html editor. HTML is the coding language of web designers. But you don't have to learn it in order to build a site. WYSIWYG html editors are as easy to use as word processing software. If you can write a fancy email or draft a nice letter, you can build a website.
Some website hosts even include professional looking website templates and beautiful stock photos, so you don't even have to hire a web designer to get a great looking site online anymore.
What is more, there are resources online that can teach you what you need to know in order to get traffic to your site and market yourself. Why not ask around at a work at home Moms message board and see what other Moms in business recommend for learning these techniques?
Don't let a small budget deter you from starting a website. For less than $25, you can buy a domain name and website hosting for one year. As you start to earn income, you can reinvest in other tools and learning that will help you grow your profits.
Building a business on the Internet has never been easier. Don't let fear or a lack of technical know-how stop you from meeting your income goals. Reach out and ask for help and you'll soon be up and running.
