Make Money Online And Work At Home
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

As moms we would like to spend more time with our family and kids. However, with the current economy and rising prices of basic needs and other things, there is a need for us to contribute in the household expenses to maintain our lifestyle and standard of living.

We get ourselves employed in an eight to five jobs only to feel guilty that we have been missing out a lot on what is going on in our children’s life. We would like to get into a traditional business but it is too prohibitive due to lack of knowledge, experience, business system and most of all, start-up capital. Most of us have that same set of limitations but that won’t stop us from achieving what we want especially when it concerns our role as a mom.

My desire to make money online and work at home led me to do a lot of research and to try a lot of online jobs. The internet age made us all realize the online business advantages there is that’s why I persisted on hunting for internet home based opportunities. Though I got scammed once, most of those I tried have made me earn some money. However, what I have been looking for is not just some money but an online business for moms that is stable, sustainable and has a great potential to generate huge earnings – and that is Affiliate Marketing.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is the online promotion and selling of products and services offered by Affiliate Networks wherein you earn commission for every sale you make.

What are the benefits of Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is in my opinion one of the best and smartest ways to earn online. Let me enumerate some of its benefit.

First, you don’t need a lot of money to start with this business. In fact, you can sign up as an affiliate with most of the Affiliate Networks for free.

Second, commission from every sale of affiliate products or services can be as high as 70%. No wonder why a lot of affiliate marketers get to earn a five to six figure income monthly. But of course, they really work for it.

Third, you don’t have to carry your own inventory nor take care of delivery and any returns. Your Affiliate Networks take care of all these things for you. All you have to do is promote any products or services within your passion and interest. Once somebody buys from your link, you will get your commission.

Fourth, you don’t have to put up and invest on any online systems to run your business smoothly. Your Affiliate Networks provide you with a tracking link, otherwise known as affiliate link to keep records of the sales you make.

Fifth, this is a good avenue to express your passion and interests. If music is your passion, then you can promote music-related products and write about them. If your interest is about beauty and anti-aging products, you can research about it, find what’s new and effective, use it if you want, blog about it, and before you know it, you’re already making a lot of sales just by doing what you love to do.

Is Affiliate Marketing for me?

If you are someone who loves to work at home at your own pace, who strongly desire to have an online home based business for moms like us, then maybe affiliate marketing is for you. However, please do not think that by doing this you can earn money overnight. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme. Affiliate marketing is a real online business that won’t give you any “too good to be true” promises. Just like any other legitimate businesses, Affiliate marketing requires hard work, discipline, dedication and commitment.

The best part of doing affiliate marketing is not just the hefty income that goes with it. It is the feeling of accomplishment that even as stay at home moms, we can do something really productive to greatly improve our lives and contribute to our family and community as well.
