If you are a stay at home mom and you want to make some extra cash for the upcoming holiday season, we have some great ideas for you to try out.
Selling Arts and Crafts
If you have a skill that is in any way artistic you can make the most of it by selling pieces online.
It could be anything.
Paintings, digital drawings, personalised cups or frames, sculptures, crochet, knitting.
The home-made revolution is very much alive in 2021 and these kind of things sell every single day on online platforms such as Etsy.
You can make reasonable amounts of money doing this and, on top of that, you get to be fun and creative too. Maybe your child could even help you out.
Blogging can be an amazing creative and financial outlet for moms. It won’t be something that makes you lots of money straight away, it is much more of a slow-burning side hustle.
If you are in no rush and have a solid financial background, you can easily start a blog for free and start writing.
You can write about anything you want and in any style you want.
The best thing is to pick a niche that you are knowledgeable in and establish a unique page.
As long as you offer value and individuality, your blog should do well.
You can start to bring the money in through ad-placement and affiliate links, once your audience builds up.
This will be something that is also great for your mental health, as you can write about how you feel and what you are experiencing, and it will keep your mind active and stimulated.
A way to make some quicker money is to sign up for a transcription service and begin transcribing audio files.
All this means is listening to audio and typing out what it says.
You usually need to pass a little test first and you need to have a laptop and headphones, but, apart from that, it is a very simple and straight-forward task.
You can work at your own pace and do as much or little as you want.
If you can speak another language you can broaden your work horizons, but just one language will be great too.
A popular online side hustle right now is being a virtual assistant.
Being a virtual assistant means taking on some digital and phone tasks for other people or businesses who need them done.
Tasks could include things like posting on social media, replying to customer emails, answering phone calls, scheduling meetings, and so on.
You can do all of this from your home with your laptop and you never need to meet any of the people in real life.
All it takes is some good people skills and decent I.T. skills.
Have a look at some freelance sites, such as Fiverr and Upwork, to see what’s out there and what kind of tasks people need done for them.
Anything you have expertise or knowledge in, you can teach.
Lots of people are searching for online tutors to help them with exams, classes, and even just language skills.
You can teach whenever suits you and you can get paid very well for quite little time spent teaching.
All you need for this is knowledge in a specific area and great communication skills.
You can teach any age or level you want.
