If you’re a stay at home mom who would love to be able to contribute to your family’s income, it’s well worth continuing reading to discover a few different business opportunities which you may be interested in pursuing!
Opportunities for moms who can work from home:
1. Social media managers
If you’re social media savvy, you may be interested in applying for a position as a social media manager for a local or international company, who requires a part-time virtual employee to manage their business’ social media accounts.
Examples of some of the tasks which you may complete on an average working day include responding to posts which have been left on your business’ wall and uploading new posts, in order to encourage your business’ target audience to interact with your business’ social media pages.
3. Direct selling
If you have a knack for communication and selling, you may want to consider signing up with a business who will allow you to sell products such as makeup, diet supplements or Tupperware, in return for a commission on every sale which you make. However, this particular opportunity may not appeal to you if you don’t like the idea of cold selling in order to keep your sales figures high.
3. Virtual assistant
If you have previous experience working in an office, you may want to apply for a position as a part-time virtual assistant. Which should still leave you with plenty of free time to look after your kids as most virtual assistant positions offer flexible hours.
Examples of some of the day to day tasks which you may be assigned include answering email queries and forwarding important emails to the right individuals. Some positions may require you to make phone calls on behalf of the company which you work for.
4. Transcription assistant
If you’re a fast typist, you may be more interested in taking up a virtual position as a transcription assistant. Which will involve typing out text from an image or from a file which contains an audio recording. As an example, you may be asked to transcribe the minutes from an important meeting.
5. English tutor
If you have an English degree, you’ll have all the qualifications which you need to start working as an English tutor. If you’re concerned that you don’t have the skills necessary in order to teach foreign students English online, don’t fret as most businesses who hire online English teachers provide each new English teacher with adequate training before they are assigned their first students.
6. Create your own boutique on a website like Etsy
If you’re a crafty individual who enjoys handmaking high-quality arts and crafts, you may want to seriously consider selling some of your crafts on a website such as Etsy. Which will connect your fledgling home business with interested buyers from around the world. Just be sure to start off small, with a small collection of products and to expand your range as you start to make regular sales.
So if you’d love to be able to contribute to your family’s income it’s well worth pursuing one or more of the home based business opportunities listed above!
