In the picture above I only told my friend about two ways to make money from home, but really there are 3 main ways.
As an affiliate you would skip the whole product creation part and just start promoting someone’s product.
This is the one I see most moms gravitate towards especially when they first start out online. As a freelancer you can take on tasks like being a virtual assistant, handling customer support for a company, data entry, graphic design, video creation, creating PowerPoint presentations, programming, etc.
NOTE: I go more in depth on how to get started as a freelancer in the next section of this post.
Thousands of moms around the world are spending their time making custom items like handmade hats, room decorations, customer outfits and scrapbooks. In the service provider section ask, “What skills do I have?” Can you type fast in word processing, are you a killer video editor? Let me first start out by telling you that – Getting Started Working From Home IS Going To Take Work! Justin and I regularly run challenges that walk people through the process of starting from NOTHING to creating their product and selling it online.
With WordPress there is just a little more of a learning curve than the drag and drop ease of Weebly.
Now that you have a website and a way for people to pay, you need to get your product created! Once you’re ready to learn more traffic tactics we have step by step traffic training. There are many ways to be an affiliate, but for me there is only one and that’s as a blogging affiliate.
I don’t always recommend doing everything yourself because it becomes overwhelming and deflates your excitement for starting to work from home. Now that you have a blog and a way to get paid you need to have products that you’ll review and post to your blog.
The first step in this process is for you to decide which skill you’re going to freelance for. So, I spent the day showing her how to build backlinks for one of my websites (well, I gave her a course that taught her how to build backlinks I should say).
This step is similar to building a resume that you would submit at an interview for a boss.
Building your website should come next, however I know many freelancers that don’t have personal websites. To find more places where you can get hired I would suggest looking in forums in your niche. One of my most recent ventures included using some of my hobbies (and inspiration from our new family addition   While I was pregnant with Cherry, I was looking to make a couple automatic websites that would earn money and didn’t require a TON of my time since I would be spending a lot of it caring for Cherry. In the process I found a BUNCH of craft niches where moms, dads, teen girls, literally thousands of people around the world are buying things like hand crocheted hats, cloth dolls, stuffed animals, wall decals, and so much more.
With that said, pick what you like to do and find out what it’s going to take for you to start selling it. Ever think you could get paid to go to the beach write a persons name in the sand, take a picture, and send it to them? Look, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist you just have to be clever and determined to make it work. These are most likely going to be long tail keywords that you can rank for just by writing an article on a blog. Search Google for every one of your keywords that you wrote down from the previous step and write down how many pages are showing in Google.
Once you have something you can make and sell (that also has buyers) you need to make 1-3 of them (depending on how much it will cost you). A good way to get good at writing your Ebay listing is to look at others that are already doing it.What are they writing? These types of products are normally digitally created (because there is no shipping or supply cost, so you get more of the 5 bucks to keep as profit.
So create an account, post what you’re willing to do, and write a KILLER description on the benefit of why the buyer should buy from you. I left this one for last because it has the most room for growth and a TON of ways you can use it.
You can work from home with your kids, but know that a couple of hours of focused time will be WAY more productive than 20 minutes here and there for an entire day. While I’m waiting to hear back from them, I am putting together a portfolio of all the graphics I have ever created. One thing I know is that there are literally hundreds of ways you can use the internet to bring extra cash or to make a full-time income. There will be a LOT of obstacles, but a true entrepreneur or someone that TRUELY wants to stay at home or work from anywhere in the world is going to find a solution and overcome the obstacle.
There’s no special tool or anything, we just try to put in a little extra effort with our blog posts.
I agree that this is a year of change and that more people are wanting to find ways to make money online than ever.
For almost every science fair project, you need to prepare a display board to communicate your work to others.
In most cases you will use a standard, three-panel display board that unfolds to be 36" tall by 48" wide. Organize your information like a newspaper so that your audience can quickly follow the thread of your experiment by reading from top to bottom, then left to right. This sample shows how difficult it can be to read text when you print it on top of an image. Print out or write your information on white paper that you will attach to your display board. Matte paper is preferable to glossy because it won't show as much glare- glare makes your display board difficult to read.
Glue sticks (use plenty) or rubber cement work well for attaching sheets of paper to your display board. A bright border, like the red Project Popperz Border shown here, can liven up a project display board in a way that complements, rather than distracts, from the project information (image courtesy of Elmer's, 2012). If you need more room to fit all your data, use a display board header card for your science fair project title (image courtesy of Elmer's, 2012). Using a colorful tri-fold display board, like this red one, for your science project can be a nice visual contrast to text and graphs printed on white paper (image courtesy of Elmer's, 2012).
Putting headings like Materials, Procedure, and Data in large fonts helps increase the readability of your project display board (image courtesy of Elmer's, 2012).
If you choose to print your display board as a full size poster, consider mounting it on a tri-fold board, as shown here, to make it easy to set up free-standing on a table (image courtesy of Kim Mullin, 2012). Thematic decorations can help set your science fair display board apart from the rest as long as the decorations do not make it difficult to see and read the project information. Contrasting colors, in this case yellow construction paper as the backing for text and images on a blue tri-fold display board, can help draw the attention of passer-bys (image courtesy of Kim Mullin, 2012). Adding models, like these turbines, to a display board can be a great way of conveying lots of information quickly. Using large letters for your project title helps attract readers to your science project display board (image courtesy of Kim Mullin, 2012). An eye catching color scheme, like this alternating blue and red on a black tri-fold display board, can help your project stand out at the science fair.
If your experimental setup is small enough and easily transported you may want to set it up in front of your science project display board.


At most science fairs, like the one shown here, the project display boards must be free-standing. Are the sections on your display board organized like a newspaper so that they are easy to follow? Does the title catch people's attention, and is the title font large enough to be read from across the room?
Did you use pictures and diagrams to effectively convey information about your science fair project?
Did you follow all of the rules pertaining to display boards for your particular science fair? You may print and distribute up to 200 copies of this document annually, at no charge, for personal and classroom educational use.
Reproduction of material from this website without written permission is strictly prohibited. Certificate of Appreciation templates are wonderful ways to give out appreciation certificates in bulk.
Other than those five main pieces of information, some certificates will have pictures or a watermark. Now if you find a template that you like, but it just doesn't have the right wording or right sections, you can usually modify the template to your liking.
In the certificate of appreciation section of Docstoc, you will find many user created templates available for download. Need to appreciate an employee for a duty or service that was above and beyond normal duties?
After spending HOURS writing to them individually I figured I should be posting this somewhere public.
I’ve broken them down here with a brief description to help you get an idea of what path you want to take. In the process they post reviews about baby slings, strollers, food, formula, clothing, training programs (like for potty training, or getting your kid to sleep, etc). They’ve heard of other people that do medical billing or medical transcription from home and earn a decent wage.
As a freelancer you can do simple tasks and get paid $15 or take on large projects getting paid hundreds per week. Pretty much any task a business has can be hired out and believe me, they are hiring freelancers to get it done!
Then using sites like Facebook, Ebay, and Etsy to put those products out there for moms to buy.
If there is anything I know best it is that many people will read this blogpost, go into information overload and give up on working from home before ever giving it a chance. Most people have this idea that I get to lounge around on my couch half of the day and then work only an hour or two. There are THOUSANDS of blogs and forums on the web where you can learn the process for free – it just takes more time and trial and error to get through it all. When I say learning curve, I don’t mean weeks or months, I mean it would take you a couple of days to learn what you need whereas with Weebly you could have your site built today. Again, to learn how to be a killer salessletter writer (copywriter) you’d have to buy a course or go through one of our challenges.
This is an ongoing step where you’ll need to continue to grow and build more and more techniques for bringing people to your website. In the signature (what shows up at the bottom of your post) you would put a link back to your site. While at work you spend your time thinking about where you’re going to stop and fish on your way home.
Again, I’d suggest going with Hostgator and installing WordPress (remember you can get this installed for you, or simply call Hostgator and ask them to walk you through how to install it yourself). Having it installed for you for under $20 costs you less time – time that you can spend learning the next step to making money. So, I would suggest that you research a keyword in your niche and then the word affiliate program. This could be a skill you already have or one that you’re going to spend the week learning.
There are all sorts of services that you can freelance for online and there are just as many people looking to hire you to do them.
There are hundreds of websites where you can register, create a profile, and start bidding on jobs around the world right now. Just as you would drive traffic to your website for your product, you’re going to drive traffic to one of your profile pages, or your personal services website.
We often get web design jobs or copywriting customers based on referrals from our friends and family that know our abilities. In this section, I want to share how easy it is these days to do something you love and sell it online. Well, in my free time with my swollen feet up on the couch I was constantly researching different home craft projects I could make to decorate her room. They’re looking for information on handmade crafts, decorating rooms, designing dresses for prom, etc. You have a talent, could learn one, or get better at one if you REALLY want to make money from home. Once you rank for them, you can start getting traffic to your website, or Etsy store, or Facebook Page where you’re selling the products related to what they are searching. You might even buy something from them so you can see the process the customer has to go through to purchase something.
Many of you (especially my friends and family reading this) only use Facebook for personal communication with you old high school buddies, old neighborhood friends, or just to keep up to date with family.
You’re going to supply the giveaway with coupons to your Etsy shop or giveaway some items for free. You might be a little intimidated to try it, but it’s something that can bring you more fans and more sales.
I’ll most likely need to call on friends and family, so hit them up for help watching the kids so that you can get some work done. Next up, I’m building my fanpage and Etsy store so that I can bring in a regular customer based of moms. OH, and leave a comment below to tell me which path you’re taking or thinking of taking.
Most people just write an article and press publish, but a little teeny bit of design work helps make the post more awesomer.
Include each step of your science fair project: Abstract, question, hypothesis, variables, background research, and so on. Use photos or draw diagrams to present non-numerical data, to propose models that explain your results, or just to show your experimental setup. A common technique is to put sheets of construction paper behind the white paper containing your text. Large font, good color combinations, and neatness will help your project display board stand out and be easily read. Since the basic information is the same from one to the other, printing out certificates for co-workers, employees and students are a snap. Across the top of the certification, have the phrase "Certificate of Appreciation" in big letters.
There should be a spot where supervisors, peers or other people giving the Appreciation certificate can sign. Also, tradition usually indicates that a fancy border completes the appeal of a good certificate of appreciate template.


If you just want to load up the document and use what is provided, that's all you have to do.
Most templates will probably be in Word format, which can be directly imported into Word and edited. All the documents are in some Office format, so if you have Office software, you will find templates that you can use right way or that you can edit how you need. So, I dedicate this post to my close friends and family that want to start making money from home. For this step you’d go out an tell others about products that are helpful and earn a commission for selling it. They spend time every morning writing about products and then if anyone buys the product from their review they earn a commission. If you have a hobby that you LOVE to talk about there is most likely an affiliate program that you can promote and earn money just for talking about something you love to do. However, what they don’t know is that there is a HUGE market for online services that is pretty easy to break into.
This is an amazing way to add some extra income to the house if you’re a stay at home mom (or dad). Instead of walking you through it here, I am giving you free access to one of the lessons from our coaching series. I use this method EVERY TIME I start a new internet business because the links in the forum last for the lifetime of the forum – so you continue to get traffic to your website years after you created it. They spend their days writing product reviews ad articles for target keywords in their niche.
From there we put together a small website and an offer so that she could sell that service to other people in need of backlinks.
The key here is to be good at what you do, deliver on time, and market your services so that you’re seen over all the others out there trying to do the same thing.
If it’s a skill you already have then just collecting some references that potential clients can contact is a good idea. If you created a website for your services, then I’d suggest you blogging about your topic. The book I recommended before, How To Be A Rockstar Freelancer, also has two chapters that focus on getting hired, making a steady income, and marketing yourself – which will really hep you start earning an income faster. These are skills that you may know how to do already or learn how to do to fulfill a need in a market of buyers. Do that 5 days a week and you’ve earned $375 just for going to the beach and writing in the sand. If so, watch them and follow what they are doing and try to implement it on your own listings. When buyers search Etsy they normally have some idea of what they want or they are looking for more ideas. Then the giveaway members will like your page (spreading the word about you) and if you are consistent with posting more products and chatting with your fans you’ll build up a strong customer based. Once I have the portfolio, I’d build profile on all of the freelance sites and start bidding on projects.
But a true passion of mine is in crafting, so I’ve been working on some sites as back burner projects as well. After typing in the needed information, print the certificate and insert it into a special document holder. While some of the templates are for appreciation, there are some specific templates you can download for employees, certain industries, and special situations. You can embed the document (via a code you copy and paste) into websites or email and even post them to Twitter, Digg, or other social networking sites. There is a basic blue and brown certificate of appreciation template that you can download and use.
They are in PDF format and cannot be edited, so you must stick with the wording and format of what is provided.
Pick one to focus on based on your skill level and the time you have to put into making it work.
NOTE: if you have no clue what backlinks are or how to build websites you might ask yourself… am I willing to learn how to do one of these (in demand services) very well and offer it as a service that I could do everyday for businesses?
When you post an answer that is helpful to the members of the forum they want to learn more about you and end up clicking the link to your site. I still get sales for my very first teaching product that I started back in 2007 and the only traffic going to the course is from the forum marketing that I did. Then on their blog they would like to related products with their affiliate link (a special link that tracks when it’s clicked and if the clicker purchased the product. It may be an information course that shows you how to find the best fishing spots, how to pick out the best supplies.
I don’t want to overwhelm you with the many ways you can drive traffic, but just know you need to start driving traffic to the site. Odesk offers skills tests that you can take to help you prove your skills to perspective employers (since you won’t have work experience on there when you first register). For example, if you are a ghost writer or copy writer, I’d write blog posts on how to choose the best writer for your project, or the 7 tips for finding a highly skilled copywriter, or the top 5 reasons to hire a writer, etc. I found HUNDREDS of ideas, but ended up buying card stock butterflies from a mom that sells a package of them for $15 (plus shipping) on Etsy. When the number is below 50,000 you can rank for the keyword in the Google easier and faster. Some of the mommy blogger I follow have etsy pages named after mashing their kids names together, sometimes its just a Rhyming name with theirs or one of the products. They are so proud of you for starting your own business – you just have to ask them for help.
Talk about the benefit and enjoyment they’ll get out of having it as a conversation piece on their dinner table.
You want to show up in the Etsy search – your title and description are what get you there.
BUT, you could sell custom tattoo designs, blueprints to pimped out tree houses, video training for martial arts, etc.
What I want you to do now though is hit the PRINT button or SAVE THIS (and a facebook share wouldn’t hurt either ). If the document if in PDF format, the creator of the template would have either locked it from further editing, which means you can only fill in the fields.
One other nice features is that you can preview the document before you download it or start entering information in.
Since all you have to do is enter in a few pieces of information, you are a short time away from a neat certificate to hand out. If the visitor does purchase the product you would earn a commission which is normally anywhere from 4-75% depending on which product you were promoting. They are skills we learned to do well, and can now offer them out to others in need of them. Many moms have created fan pages and regularly post sale items, advertise new items, and even hold midnight auctions to make sales every day for their at home business.
Writing about something that bores you to death just because other people like the niche isn’t going to help you become successful). Now you need to print Chaunna’s Become A WAHM (or WAHD) CheatSheet (Right click and save file as) and get to work.
