Here are the best businesses ideas you should try:

Offer an online service

Think about your assets and interests. There is a wide range of services you can provide online. From writing, editing to reviewing books or legal documents, the internet makes things easier. If you have an artistic spirit like myself, you could sell your art online or become a graphic designer. Bookkeeping, virtual support, web design, or even tutoring are just a few examples. 

Sell physical products online 

Stay at home moms don’t need to put on hold their dreams just because they have kids. Open an online store where you can sell physical items. A retail business is a great idea to sell homemade products, but not only. You could resale used items, for example. There are many platforms where you could sell your products, such as Amazon, eBay or Etsy. However, you also have the option to build your website. 

Informational products  

Another great way to earn an income from the comfort of your home is to sell informational products online. We live in a world where we can find information very easy. Many people go online searching for all sorts of topics. However, that doesn’t mean that all information is for free. Some people are willing to pay for it. 

Create information products and provide them virtually. What exactly is that? Here are a few examples:

  • Books
  • Home Study Courses
  • Seminars
  • Audio
  • Video Tutorials

The easiest way to earn passive money is by selling an ebook or physical book. Selling online books doesn’t require shipping, meaning the money will automatically be transferred into your bank account. It is an ideal job to have as you don’t need to leave the house. If you are more into publishing than writing, there are many ghostwriters you could hire. However, this is just one example of the many things you could sell online. 


Maybe writing an entire book is too time-consuming. However, if you are passionate about writing, you should start a niche blog. Make money from a topic you feel comfortable with and know well. You can make a lot of money, especially if other people are invested in your topic. 

The trick is to have ads on your website. Although people will read your articles for free, you can make money if they click on the ads. There are many ad feed programs online, such as Google AdSense. You can become a successful blogger through internet marketing. The more traffic you have on your site, the more money you can make. 

Market affiliate products and services 

The last one on my list is marketing affiliate products and services. What does it mean? It means you can earn easy money by making referrals. Businesses will offer you money to promote their products or services online. 

The best part is that you won’t have to struggle with selling or delivering products. To become an affiliate marketer, you will need a blog or a squeeze page and an email funnel. It may all sound a little complicated at the moment, but once you understand the whole concept, it’s easy and rewarding.

First, you need a base of subscribers, and then you can start your strategy. The trick is to know your subscriber’s needs and send an email link at the right moment to evoke immediate action. If a person buys the product through your link referral, you will make money. You can either earn a commission or flat rate.

However, for this work, people need to trust you. Building a community is not that easy nor fast, but the pay is worth it. You need to offer your blog readers, newsletter subscribers, or social media followers more than just links. To do so, you need to open up, share essential tips and tricks, help them learn something from you or relate to your content.

Stay at home moms, don’t be afraid to start something new and different.
