Stay-At-Home Moms (And Dads) Can Make Real Money At Home

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.

I used to make a lot from ClickBank, one of the oldest CPA affiliate programs around. You just have to promote and sell your own products or promote other products from their large catalog of digital products and receive a commision on each sale which you generate.

Isn’t Nicole Dean Great! I was just listening to her on a podcast last night. Affiliate marketing is not hard, and even though I’m learning the basics I’m certainly getting some feed back, and its soo much fun!

Any mom out there that thinks they can’t work at home, Nicole Dean can certainly change your mind.

I have severe anxiety issues that keeps me from working, so I am drawing disability. I have been wanting to do something to earn money, and even though I love taking surveys, they just do not pay very much. I have a blog, but with only one follower right now. I am going to check into this and hopefully I will be able to generate a little income eventually. Thanks so much for sharing this and thanks to Nicole Dean for letting others know how to make money from home!

This doesn’t have to do with Affiliate marketing, but I contacted a bakeware manufacturer and explaind the difficulties of being a stay at home mom and needing an additional source of income.
I expected a rejection (got 9 straight) till I found a company willing to help me out and not demand I buy 2,000 pieces.
Now I throw small house parties and do pretty good. Not rich, but finally making ends meet.

Are you guys serious? The writing style sounds like everything is written from the same person.

    The Hillbilly Housewife - January 25, 2011

    Yes, Martha, the introduction was written by me and the article was written by Nicole Dean. We do have similar writing styles – this has been noticed in our circle of friends – probably because we have been friends so long. So, yes, we are serious.
