My good friend, Nicole Dean, has been making money working at home for many years now. So, when she wrote this article, I knew I should share it with you.
Many of my readers have real concerns about how they are going to pay the bills, let alone put money away for an emergency, college, or retirement. Some of you are currently staying at home, raising your family and running a busy household. Wouldn’t it be great if you could stay at home AND make money at the same time?
The decision to stay at home shouldn’t limit your possibilities to earn an income – and it doesn’t! There are many ways that a stay-at-home Mom or Dad can put their talents to work for them making money.
Nicole has provided us with one way to put your talents to work for you in the following article. Please take a minute to read what she has to say and give it some thought.
Stay-at-Home Moms: You Can Make Money Just By Doing What You Are Already Doing
Written by Nicole Dean
Are you hanging out on forums?
Sending emails to family and friends with jokes or the latest news about your family?
Do you tell friends and family about the great new products or services you find?
Do you have a personal blog?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you can make money by doing exactly what you are already doing – and it’s totally legit.
You see, there are websites that will pay you to bring them sales. And, no, I’m not talking about Direct Sales or MLM. These are companies that need a sales force, but there’s no recruiting involved. You get paid when you send someone to their website – if that person makes a purchase. So, what you do is sign up as an affiliate for that company (which means you promote their website) and, whenever someone makes a purchase through your special link, you get a percentage of that sale.
Confusing? Not really. Just think of Real Estate agents. They make a commission on the sale of each house they sell. It’s the same thing with affiliates. You refer a customer and you get a percentage of that sale as a reward.
Once you find a few programs that you like, you’ll go to their websites. From there, find the link that says “Affiliates” or “Referral program” and sign up. Once you do, they’ll provide you with links that you can use in your emails and on forums.
Here’s a quick disclaimer: Not all programs allow email or forum posting. So, read the rules and follow the guidelines and you’ll be set.
No, you likely won’t get rich as this is not a get-rich-quick scheme. However, affiliate marketing is a quick way to get started making some money online without high pressure sales. If you choose to learn more and make a full-time income – that’s a whole ‘nother article.
Nicole Dean wants to help you find these golden opportunities. Just go to MomAffiliateNetwork.com and have a look around at the affiliate programs that will pay you for spreading the word about their programs.
