Work From Home For Dad

Times have changed - things are not like the way they were when I was growing up. My dad was the bread winner; he went to work every day while my mom stayed at home to take care of us.

Looking back I think my dad got the better end of the deal – taking care of us kids was no walk in the park (sorry mom).

Today you may have both parents working or mom stays at home or dad stays at home. It's just the way it is.

I have many friends where either mom or dad is staying home and the main reason is that child care is so expensive that giving up one income is actually cheaper.

But with that said these same friends are searching for work that they can do online from home to bring in some extra income, many want create a full time income.

The great thing about working online is the flexibility it provides you and when you're taking care of kids flexibility is what you need. Not to mention the opportunity to create any size income you want or need.

I now there is a lot of choices but in my opinion (I speak from experience) the best vehicle for creating an extra or full time income from home is Affiliate Marketing.

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Well simply put, it’s being a commission sales person. You receive a commission of each sale of any product or service of a company you're affiliated with. And there are thousands of products and/or services you can choose from.

The most successful affiliate marketers promote things they are already interested in; typically it’s a passion or hobby. And no matter what your passion or hobby is you have the opportunity to turn it into a very lucrative income.

What Are The Advantages Of Affiliate Marketing?

1) It costs nothing to become an affiliate, you simply sign up with a company’s affiliate program and you’re good to go.

2) There is no limit on your earning potential. Like anything - what you put into it – is what you’ll get out of it.

3) You create your work schedule. Work when you want.

4) Can create a residual income – work once and get paid over and over again. For example if you belong to a gym they have you pay a monthly fee. This is a recurring income for the gym; you can do the same with affiliate marketing.

5) You are your own boss.

6) Can create an online business that you could pass onto your children one day.

Getting Started As An Affiliate Marketer

Getting started takes just a few steps, first you have to decide what you want to market.

Like I said earlier you have thousands and thousands of products and services to choose from. The best place to start is with what interests you, your passions or hobbies.


Like any business you need a place for people to come to purchase the product/services you'are marketing, and online that’s a website.

Once your site is up and running you next step is generating traffic to your site. There are many, many different free and paid methods of getting traffic to your website.

For example you can do Email marketing, article marketing, pay per click, ad words, SEO, blogging – and so on.

Training & Support

The best way to insure your success is to be trained and supported by experts and people who are already successful in affiliate marketing.

The best community for that is the Wealthy Affiliate – and just like becoming an affiliate marketer it costs nothing to become a member of this community.

Everything you need to set up and build your online affiliate business is here for you, nothing is left to chance.

You have over 60 training modules plus dedicated classrooms. You get 2 free websites with free web hosting along with over 1400 website templates designs to choose from.

And with their WordPress express website builder can have your website up and running within 3 clicks. And if that’s not all you have access to 24/7 live chat support from very successful online marketers whenever you need it.

With all the offers available online to work from home I think the wisest decision is to build your own online business with affiliate marketing.

I know it’s the best decision I ever made.
