Share Button

MumI am a mother. It’s my #1 most rewarding and important job. Of course, I have days where I want to tear my hair off, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. Unfortunately, being a mother alone doesn’t create any income (it should!!), and I started looking for ways to make an income from home not long after my son was born. I have covered of numerous income ideas for stay-at-home mothers here, however, I will tell you about my chosen source of income right now.

Affiliate Marketing

My favourite thing about the concept of affiliate marketing is that you can earn money off pretty much anything! I mean it; there are Affiliate Programs out there for pretty much any interest and category. ClickBank and Amazon are only two of many market places online that offer a wide selection of products in any niche that you can promote and earn money from. When you decide what products to promote, you sign up as an affiliate member, and you will get assigned a personal affiliate link that you should utilise on your website.

Affiliate programs can pay you in a few different ways, and I recommend you read my article “Making Money with Affiliate Programs” for more insight on how this works.

 

What affiliate program do I make money from? Shout it out loud!

After doing a fair bit of research on different affiliate programs, I decided Wealthy Affiliate was worth a shot. I had read many great reviews about it, and it was FREE to join. My main reason for joining though, was not to earn money off their affiliate program – the main reason was that I found this to be the absolute best platform to LEARN HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL doing affiliate marketing.

You see, most of the members on Wealthy Affiliate (WA) don’t make money off recommending WA; they make money by promoting products they are personally passionate about. The common denominator is that we all find WA so incredible because it’s an online education pool; a network of newbies and experiences online marketers that learn from each other. As I mentioned before, it is free to join and provides you with every tool and resource to be successful online. Please read my review in full for more details on what you get.

Income limits

There really are no income limits in this business. In saying that, please do not think that money will land in your hands without putting any work into it…because that’s not how it works. But I will tell you this; if you do put some time and effort into it, and you start by learning the right way and at your own pace, then there is absolutely no reason why you, too, can’t get an income while being a stay-at-home mum. About the ‘money will land in your hands’-comment….how nice wouldn’t that be?? I still hand in my lottery ticket every week…just in case :)

 

Getting Started

I have covered this off on my page called “Getting Started” (genius, hey;-)…but if you rather would like to check it out first hand, then please feel free to check out the Wealthy Affiliate website: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home

Do not feel any pressure to sign up. I mean it; it’s not what I’m about. And it’s certainly not how I make money. You can sign up when, and if, you find it as interesting and rewarding as I do.

Needless to say though, I highly recommend WA for anyone looking to learn more about affiliate marketing and getting an income working from home and on your own time.

 

I’m more than happy to help answer any questions you may have. Feel free to drop me a line below.

 

Have a happy (mothers-) day to you all!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6 Thoughts on “Income Ideas for Stay-at-Home Mothers – See how anyone can make money from home

  1. Great article Karina. I like the lottery too! Even if I do usually lose my money. Haha. :)

    But, Wealthy Affiliate is the place where I learn how to make money. I don’t know where I would be without the guidance and support of the members over there. WA is helping me realize my dream staying home with my kids while supporting my family financially.

    • Haha Christina, I know – I ALWAYS lose money on lottery! ;-) Mind you, I never spend too much money on it, so it’s not a big loss.
      In all seriousness though, the far better and more realistic path to earning a living from home (or anywhere, really) is with Wealthy Affiliate. I have learnt techniques on how to improve Google ranking to get more traffic to my site, and been introduced like some fantastic resources and tools like Jaaxy for keyword research. I’ve never looked back :)

      Have a fantastic day, and once again, thanks for the comments.

      Cheers
      Karina

  2. At the risk of sounding like a jerk, the lottery is a tax for the poor and ignorant. You can get rich FOR SURE if you can just put a massive amount of time and energy into something. Wealthy Affiliate is the surest path to success to internet marketing and you can make as much or as little money with it depending on how much time and effort you put in. WA is the path of least resistance, basically.

    • Haha, I’m not sure I agree with your lottery statement…Personally, I think it’s just a bit of fun and game.
      I totally agree with you on the rest of your comments though! I really do believe anything is possible if you put your mind to it, and I’m glad you, too, find Wealthy Affiliate to be the best platform for it.

      Cheers,
      Karina

  3. This is exactly why I got into affiliate marketing. The freedom to do what I want, when I want, with who I want. Not being a slave to a company is a dream come true. Wealthy Affiliate helped me get to where I am today and the people there are so helpful and friendly.

    I think it is safe to say that I found a community of people that has really helped me make a dent in my Internet Marketing.
