So in today's video, I want to jump right into the best remote jobs that are available for stay at home moms or dads, so let's get started.
One of the first things that a stay at home mom or dad can jump into is blogging. I have been blogging for about seven years now, and it has been a challenge. I mean, blogging is very lucrative if you stick to it. I've had many people that I mentor that try to start a blog, and they may post one month and then they take off two months. So I have to say, if you want to be very profitable with blogging, you have to treat it like a business. And so if you have the ability to write, and you don't have to be a great writer, and also you love, and it's comfortable being on social media, that it is very much possible to make a full-time income blogging.
I have a free training for those that would love to start a blog. I'll link below so you guys can learn more about my personal journey, and then I'll share how you can brainstorm some different blog topics if you're struggling in that feel, and you're just not sure what you want to blog about. And then I also walk you step by step with how to start your blogs. I'll make sure I leave that resource below. Go here to setup your blog today!
Social Media Moderator
Now if you're a person that really doesn't want to get into blogging, but you love social media, I do highly recommend that you dive into being a social media manager, which means that you basically manage other people's social media accounts. There are many people, companies, and brands that need someone to help them with the marketing. And so you will simply manage their social media pages, you will manage the comments to make sure no one is spamming, and then also you will basically write out content on their social media platform, whether it's their Instagram account, Facebook, Twitter, and so forth.
Some skills that are highly recommended when it comes down to being a great social media manager is of course you must be comfortable with daily use of social media platforms, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and more. Also, you must be able to read and write the English grammar. And then also you must be organized and you must know how to multitask. A few sites that you can look into for social media jobs is 99 Dollar Social, right now they are looking for an Instagram writer, as well as a part-time writer. They will provide training, and all they require is for you to have an up-to-date computer, as well as you must be able to submit content on a weekly basis.
Another platform that hires worldwide is ModSquad. ModSquad has been out for many, many years, and they have so many different social media jobs that you can be able to apply for, so I highly recommend checking out these sites. Now if you feel a social media manager is not a great fit for you, I highly recommend becoming a virtual assistant if you have a really good administrative background. Even if you don't have experience as a virtual assistant, if you have great organizational skills, you can be able to apply for companies, life Fancy Hands pay $3 to $7 per task, they don't require any experience at all, and you can be able to work on your own schedule. Another website that is great for finding virtual assistant jobs is HiByron. Now this is a fairly new website where you can work whenever you want. You can select your own projects, and then you get paid very quickly, every two weeks via PayPal.
Audio Book Narrator
Another opportunity for stay at home moms and dads is to become an audio book narrator or a voice over actor. You will need a nice speaking voice, laptop or PC to manage your work, and a pair of headphones and a recording software like Audacity. This job just requires you to basically read a book in a recording booth, or you can just use your home closet. You can set up your equipment in there, and you can use that as your recording studio. The average salary for a voice over actor is around $40,000 per year, because a lot of these sites and these companies, they will pay you around $20 per hour to narrate books.
A few sites that you can check out, Amazon Audio Book Creative Exchange, they will simply connect narrators to books so you can be able to narrate those books. And then also they have additional opportunities where you can find agents, and possibly really branch out there and be able to earn money from your talent. Also, Voices.com is also another online marketplace that has thousands of voice over jobs that you can be able to check out if you're interested in diving into this field.
The next opportunity for stay-at-home moms and dads is to become an online tutor. Now, if you're homeschooling, you're already at home teaching your kids, so you can be able to earn additional money teaching other kids, other college students, and adults, depending on your skills and experience. Now, if you don't have prior teaching experience, I highly recommend checking out a website called Cambly. They pay around $10 per hour. They don't require any type of teaching degree, you don't have to have any prior teaching experience, and you will basically video chat with students online and earn money on your own schedule. Another platform is Chegg. If you have more experience helping people with their homework, and is real knowledgeable in different school subjects, you can be able to earn around $1000 per month teaching on Chegg.
If teaching is not your thing, then I highly recommend diving into maybe a content writer. You can simply write about a variety of topics like, food, health, pets, and so much more. Now some skills that you will need to have is of course you must be great at writing. You must love to write, you must be organized and self motivated. A lot of times you won't have a boss telling you, “Hey, you have this deadline,” but you need to be motivated enough to be able to write this content, and also be able to read and understand the English grammar.A few resources that I highly recommend you check out, freelancemom.com, they are always looking for contributors to write on a variety of topics. Also, another popular job board is ProBlogger. It was started by Darren Rowse back in 2004, and he has did a great job of being able to provide an amazing blog and a resource for those that are searching for writing jobs, as well as any type of blogging jobs and just learn more about blogging.
Side Hustle Ideas
I also want to make sure I share some side hustle ideas for those that want to earn some additional income.
Become A Proofreader
One great side hustle is you can be able to proofread articles full-time or part-time. A site called the proofreadingservices.com is always looking for new proofreaders to join. They don't require you to have prior proofreading experience, but you can be able to take on the projects, earn anywhere from $19 to $46 per hour working on your own schedule. So I highly recommend that site.
Sell Your Arts and Crafts
Another side hustle that is great for stay at home moms and dads is you can sell your arts and crafts. I highly recommend, if you're very talented in making homemade handmade jewelry, holiday wreaths, all types of coffee mugs, t-shirts, clothing, nail art, all types of different designs, I highly recommend Etsy. Etsy is an online marketplace where you can be able to sign up and sell your product. That is a site that I go to if I want something custom, so I do highly recommend you checking out that site and hey, what do you know? If you go on that site and you start marketing your profile, you may be able to turn that into a possible full-time business.
Sell Your Printables
Now, if you are a homeschooling mom or dad, and you like to make printables, different resources and activities for students, then I highly recommend that you sell your printables online. A platform called teacherspayteachers.com will allow you to go on and sell your printables to other teachers and other homeschooling moms that may be looking for some resources for their students.
