You’ve decided that starting an online business will give you flexibility in your schedule and allow you to earn extra income while still spending quality time with your family.
You’re officially a mompreneur…you go, girl! 🎉
Now, how do you get started? Here are nine tips for moms looking to launch a successful mompreneur business.
9 Mompreneur Tips to Make Money Online
1. START SMALL, WITH A PLAN
If you’re just getting started, it’s better to start with something simple than trying to build up a huge empire right away. (Don’t worry; that’ll come later.)
Then, as you know, a plan is essential to any successful venture. Whether you’re starting a new business, launching an app, or creating a website, having a clear vision of what you want to accomplish is key.
2. PICK A PROFITABLE NICHE
If you’re looking to make money online as a mompreneur, consider starting with a niche market. (A niche market is a group of people who share similar interests and needs.)
Finding a market in need where you can offer something unique will set you apart from the crowd.
Do your research and find a niche where 1) there’s a need where you can help, and 2) where people are willing to spend money. There are so many great mompreneurs out there whose businesses don’t go anywhere because they simply don’t have both elements.
3. DETERMINE WHAT YOU’LL OFFER
If you have expertise in a particular area, offer your services as a consultant, coach, service provider, etc. Get specific with your offerings early on, so there are no questions about how you do (and do not) add value.
4. START A WEBSITE
If you want to make money online, you’ll need a website. It’s simply not enough to just have a Facebook page or Instagram account; you also need a site where people can find out more about you and your products or services.
Plus, you own your website. When it comes to your social media presence, you don’t have any control over the algorithms, let alone what ultimately happens to the platforms.
5. BUILD A BLOG
A blog is a great way to show potential customers that you know what you’re talking about, for adding incredible value, and for writing interesting and informative content.
6. START COLLECTING EMAILS
Once you’ve got a website, you’ll need to build an email list. Not only will this allow you to send emails to your subscribers when there’s new content available, special offers, or other updates.
7. LEVERAGE SOCIAL MEDIA
If you’re not using social media to promote your business, you’re missing out on a huge opportunity to reach new customers.
Make sure you’re active on all the major platforms, and that you’re regularly sharing interesting and engaging content. (And don’t worry, you don’t need to create unique content for each — you simply need to repurpose!)
8. START MONETIZING
There are a few different ways to monetize your audience once you’ve built it up. The most common method is through advertising, but you can also sell products or services, affiliate marketing, or even sponsorship deals.
9. RINSE & REPEAT
The final step is to rinse and repeat the process! Continue creating valuable content and promoting it to attract more readers or viewers. Soon enough, you’ll be making money online, mama!
There you have it! These are nine simple tips that any mompreneur can follow to start making money online.
It’ll take a lot of hard work, consistency, and perseverance. But we both know you have that in spades, mompreneur.
