As mothers, it’s very difficult to leave our children in the care of others to go off and work an 8-10 hour day. Is it even worth it after you see the paycheck at the end of the week. After paying the sitter, calculating the gas and parking to go to work, how much are you left with?
I found it not to be worth it and decided that I needed to research jobs for stay at home moms through the internet when my daughter was born. I needed to find a way to supplement the household income.
I wanted a way to earn money while raising my children. I was totally willing to put in the time and effort to learn something new. If it meant a genuine income and not just a few dollars here and there, like filling out surveys and crap, then It would have my attention.
Weeding Out The Scams
The internet is filled with get-rich-quick crap and millions of “learning materials” at a simple price of about $19.99 or more, sometimes less.
Once you decide to buy into it and purchase the packet or instant download, most likely you are going to find that you have to purchase more information and products to make the “money” from the initial product you bought.
It’s an endless roller coaster and so easy to lose track of what was bought and how much money you spent. All of the information being thrown at you can become so confusing that you can’t even wrap your head around it and eventually give up and move on to something else.
When you purchase a product, it’s not a crazy idea to expect that it will work and give you all the tools for success right from the start. There really are programs that work and allow you to make money without cleaning out your savings, only to see a small return, if any.
Through all the different things I tried, and let me tell you I feel like a total idiot for a lot of the things I fell for, I found a genuine program that taught me how to make a decent income from home using my computer. The best part about it was that it was free, totally 100% free and I could learn at my own pace.
If you’re still reading then I have gotten your attention and I know you won’t be disappointed with what I’m going to share with you! The best part about what I’m going to share with you is that you can be with your children at home and make money as a stay home mom!
I found not only a program but an online classroom that is a wealth of information and learning tools for people to learn what internet marketing is all about.
Anyone willing to learn can begin earning money online. This is no “get rich quick scheme” and it’s not only about one way to make money through the internet, you will learn different ways to be successful with online marketing.

Why Share What I Have Learned?
Think of your favorite stores, type them in Google followed by “affiliate program”. For Example, target affiliate program. Here is what comes up:
All you would do, is click the link and sign up for their affiliate program to start selling their products on your website. You can do this with any store that you can think of and if they don’t have an affiliate program yet, I’m sure they will very soon.
Affiliate marketing is growing at an incredible rate, by 2019 it is estimated that the affiliate marketing industry will be worth at least $5.97 billion with well over 500 million products to sell. That is huge compared to when I started out, the choices of products and services that you can choose to promote is astronomical.
There is no way that others who decide to join in and start affiliate marketing can take away any business from you or me. There are just so many products and choices, not to mention all of the companies that are turning to affiliate marketers to sell there products every single day.
Sharing this with others won’t hurt me at all, it will help fellow mom’s just like myself, stay home with their children instead of having to drop them at a sitter and hope that they are cared for properly. You know that they are safe and sound right there with you, for me that is a priceless gift to give to other mom’s.
Why Do Companies Use Affiliate Marketers?
This is a simple answer, companies are saving thousands and thousands of dollars every single year using people like us, affiliate marketers, to sell there products.
- Companies don’t have to pay to advertise to get there products seen, affiliate marketers advertise for them.
- Companies don’t have to pay employees large salaries with hopes that they come up with a catchy slogan to sell their products. Affiliate marketers don’t get paid unless we sell their product, so we are more motivated to sell than an employee with an outrageous salary.
- Companies don’t have to worry about health insurance, pension plans or 401k’s when they use affiliate marketers. This in itself will save companies unknown amounts of money.
- Affiliate marketers are more likely to sell larger amounts of products for companies because that’s how we get paid. We don’t call in sick or leave work early, the internet is working for us and them 24/7.
- Affiliate marketers are more motivated than employees, we love what we do and we have fun doing it! We are able to make a very good income all while we are home and able to take care of our kids.
- For companies using affiliate marketers, they are going to reach a lot more prospective buyers online. The presence of online shoppers has risen tremendously and is only going to get bigger every year. People appreciate the convenience of shopping online for absolutely everything from food to exercise equipment.
- Purchases made online are almost all through affiliate links and companies know that. They would be foolish not to take advantage of the free advertising we offer them for a cut of the sale. It truly is a win, win for both the companies and the affiliate marketers, we are both on the same side, to sell a product.
