Nowadays anyone can get into affiliate marketing. So, why not moms who want to make that extra money during their leisure when the kids are off to school? Like everyone who wants to excel in the field of affiliate marketing, the moms too have to choose the right niche. A niche which the mom is comfortable writing articles for and also like it personally herself. Once the right niche is chosen, half the job is done.
Moms could write articles for other moms about baby care, there by market baby care products. This could be helpful to the writer herself because she is a mother by herself and will need a good understanding of the products before recommending it to the others. By this, other readers who are moms will trust the author because they know she is also a mother who is using the product for her child. If all this sounds very serious, then the moms can opt for some relatively less serious niches such as books or even interior decoration. These niches wouldn’t take most of your time and hence will spare you some time to spend with your children. You could also choose niches like pet care, gardening etc. and still make very good money.
Initially, it might be hard for moms to spend time writing articles, finding a good affiliate program and so on. But few small things like setting up a work schedule for writing articles for the week or even the month could solve all this. You could write articles when your kid is at school. All you need is a couple of hours. You could do this even during the nights after your son or daughter goes to sleep.
There are many affiliate sites on the internet which offer programs specially for moms and these programs usually are very simple and easy to practice. Most of them don’t even want you to own a website to market their products. You could market via emails or through social networks. Then there are the ones which require you to have a website, but might not want you to write an article for their product. You could just post their banner which redirects you to their product site when you click them and you get paid whenever someone clicks it. The other method is by direct contact apart from emails, could be via text messages or even phone calls. This doesn’t count as online affiliate marketing, but still they are available as options for those who are not very comfortable working online.
The only thing that you need to keep in mind is to choose something that doesn’t have too much competition and also one which will eventually get a lot of followers. And dedicate a couple of hours every day to write articles. Once you do that, there is nothing stopping you from earning a good amount of money right from your home and save all the valuable time to spend it with your children.
