Blogging is one of the most popular business ideas for WAHM. Not only is it easy to get started, but the initial investment to get started is very little. In fact, if you’ve got $10 for a domain name, you can get started. You want to choose a topic that you can see yourself writing about on a regular basis and one that doesn’t limit you. In order to make money from your blog, you want to choose an area that would allow you to do sponsored posts for companies. Sponsored posts are posts written that tell readers about a product, but are done in a way that feels natural. You will need to put in a lot of time and effort to get your blog off the ground before you can start making money, but it can be well worth it in the end.
Do you have an eye for photography? I know many friends who make some great cash on the side with their photography businesses. The sky is the limit on what type of services you can offer. Wedding photography, creating stock photos, studio portraits, etc. All you need is a high quality DSLR Camera and your in business. You decide where this hobby can lead you.
If you have an eye for design, graphic design can be a wonderful business to get into. You can make ads for companies to use on Facebook, you can design websites, or you can make graphics for local businesses to use on their products. You can take personal enrichment courses at your local community college to learn the basics or you can find a number of great books for teaching yourself. This is a business that can be very profitable.
No longer do authors have to wait for a publisher to come to them. Thanks to Amazon, you can publish your book for free. Whether you want to write a novel or a how-to book, this is a great way to earn money. Once you’ve published your book, the money will continue to come in. The key is making time to promote your book online and publishing on a regular basis. Successful independent authors publish a new book every two months.
Do you have a knack for social media? Do you not mind doing tasks that are easy but boring? There are a number of people out there that need virtual assistants to handle the small tasks of their business. For example, authors need people to manage their social media accounts, answer emails, send out free copies of their books, etc. The key to this business is working for several people at once because most people only need an assistant for a couple hours a week.
Do you love to travel and travel alot? Being a travel agent you have the options of working remotely from home. I recommend working with a host company to start out. Host Agency Reviews is a great website for researching which host company is right for you. It is really not difficult getting started and the job is very rewarding.
Data entry is another great business for WAHM to get into. Again, there are a number of companies that need this service and the pay can be really good. Best of all, you can work whenever you want. The company the Smart Crowd, offers data entry jobs. All you need to do is pass a test and start receiving assignments.
Last, but not least, if everyone brags about your baking skills, put them to use. It will take money to get your kitchen certified, but owning a bakery can be a rewarding experience. It’s also a job that allows you to be creative. Many home-based bakeries are using Facebook groups as a way to sell their products. Just list what you have available and watch the orders roll in. My friend at Adonai Desserts from Atlanta made her love for baking into a full time business!
You don’t have to stop being a WAHM to earn money. More and more companies are looking to hire freelance workers, which means that you can quickly start working from home. Whether you love to write or want to work as a virtual assistant, there are several great business ideas for WAHM.
