From the Tinley Park Mom Blog, here are a few ideas worth looking at if you’re looking for a way to earn extra revenue if you’re based at home.

4 Profitable Business Ideas For Moms

Finding a business that suits you is possible if e-commerce is not your thing. If you aren’t sure what to do or don’t know where to start, build a business around something that you love doing. As a starting point, try to think of something you’re skilled at doing. Moreover, it should be something you enjoy too. Need some inspiration? These are some examples of home-based businesses that have been successful to date.

1. Virtual Assistant Services

Many busy business owners are looking for additional assistance to manage their tasks, especially when it comes to those tasks they don’t have the time to get around to themselves. So, if you have administrative or organizational skills that you’re proud of, why not offer your services virtually to those companies in need of a helping hand?

2. Tutoring

If you have a skill that you are highly sought-after these days, and you have a lot of experience in your field. Tutoring could be the ideal way to spend your time whilst giving you the flexibility to manage your home and household too.

3. Personal Trainer

Perhaps you’re passionate about fitness and want to help others achieve their fitness goals, then becoming a personal trainer could be the way to go. Plus, you could even record exercise videos and upload these online if you don’t have the facilities to train others in person. 

4. Daycare Center

Becoming a daycare teacher could be the perfect job for you if you are passionate about children and are a licensed professional. Of course, you will need to ensure that your home is suitable and safe for pre-schoolers. However, it is one of those jobs that is sure to be rewarding and ultimately very fulfilling.

Deciding on the Type of Business

There are several things you need to do in order to get your business started. As a start, you will need to choose a business structure. Since this can be a complex process with the various business structures to choose from, many new entrepreneurs choose to start an LLC because of its many benefits.  

Marketing Your Business

After your business is established, you will need to effectively market your new business. This should be easy with all the marketing tools available nowadays, not to mention affordable, especially if you make use of the many free tools online. For example, you can create a logo online quickly and easily (and for free) by using a free logo maker and then just modifying the templates by changing the colors and fonts on the style templates provided once you have chosen a style and added in the necessary text. 

If you’d like to seek help with your marketing as it relates to your web presence, Tinley Park Mom founder Stephanie Pyrzynski does that for a living over at the digital agency Geoffresh, that her husband Geoff in 2007.

A Home-Based Business Can Be A Huge Success

Irrespective of what business you decide to start, building a home-based business (that is not e-commerce-based) can be a successful journey, as the process from start-up to growth to success is sure to be the same. What is important is that you are determined and committed to making it work, whilst not forgetting to enjoy the creation you managed to build from scratch.
