I 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.
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.
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 🙂
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. 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!
