How Single Moms Can Earn a Full Time Income From Home With the Power of Blogging
I’ve often thought about how stay at home moms, stay at home dads, and/or single moms can make extra cash from home. I see all sorts of junk being promoted online and on TV for this that simply doesn’t work, or simply isn’t sustainable enough, or is too active to be able to pull off. And so, in today’s blog post, and yes I know this is going to sound like a ridiculous sales pitch, I am going to tell you how you can make a FULL TIME INCOME FROM HOME in a way that is almost completely passive. How single moms can earn a full time income from home lies in the power of blogging and SEO, an amazing business model that I have fell in love with because it is completely passive once it is built up. In this article, I will give you my actual recommendation for how you can use your time as productively as possible as either a single mom or a stay at home mom or dad, in order to build yourself fully passive, income generating websites that pull in anywhere from $500 to $10,000 per month.

Here’s my advice for how to use your time to build up income generating affiliate websites if you are a single mom:
Utilize every second of free time humanly possible
Use your alone time to build up blogs and write blog posts
Use time with the kids as productively as possible
Reinvest all profits back from the website as soon as they start coming in
Split test for maximum monetization
Build up an Email List if Possible
Keep Costs low and opt for the cheapest costs possible at first
Use only unique images so you can qualify for ad revenue on your website along with affiliate revenue
Keep scaling until you hit your desired level of money, and even once you hit your goal, NEVER STOP BLOGGING and never stop writing, if you stop writing you start to become irrelevant. The saying holds true in the blogging world just as much as in insurance sales of Wealth Management, you are only as good as yesterday’s sale, so always be growing!
How Single Moms Can Earn a Full Time Income From Home, Utilize Every Second Possible
Now I know this is going to be hard to find a lot of free time being a single mom or a stay at home mom…but I mean….you’re not Elon Musk, the time is there. If you really want to pull this off, if I am being totally honest, you are going to need to cut out everything else that is not an absolute necessity, try to minimize going out with friends, try to minimize down time that involves watching TV or not working on your business. What these other websites won’t tell you when they are painting their rosy stories about how you can make a full time living online and blah blah blah, is that it is HARD to do this, very hard, and it is very cutthroat and competitive in this neck of the woods, being internet marketing and SEO. Yes there are other moms that pulled this off, and trust me they worked their tail off for a really long time and for a number of years in terms of where they are today.
You will see why I say you will need every single second in a bit, because you are going to be looking at writing between 1,000,000 and 10,000,000 words, and realistically probably closer to 10,000,000 or 15,000,000 words (possibly even 20,000,000 words, the equivalent of between 250 and 350 full length novels.) Now why would anyone spend their time doing this? Because once you build it, you have reached your goal, if you can write 15M words, which is about 10,000 1500 word blog posts, you will have at an absolute minimum, 300,000 to 500,000 pageviews per month, or about $8,000 to $10,000 per month in lifetime income. You also have the option to sell this for as much as $500,000….yeah, it’s worth it if you put the work in, but I won’t lie to you, it is going to take a lot of time, effort and persistence.
Use Your Alone Time for Blogging
My next tip to you would be to use your alone time for blogging, and while I know that this sounds ridiculous, time spent on Tinder, or watching the Bachelor, or chilling and watching Netflix, all of that nonsense can either be cut out or you can do it with a laptop on your lap, that is your best chance at seriously making money with your own online business. And I know that the tone of this blog post is going to be a little bit aggressive here, but I want it to highlight how difficult it is going to be going into this. If you are going to go into it thinking you can just do this for an hour a day or something, or that after writing 50 blog posts you’ll be making $500 per month, then you are kidding yourself. It is quite literally going to take a lot of time and effort and likely hundreds and more likely thousands upon thousands of blog posts with a good SEO strategy, a good niche and a good keyword schema in order to make this work.
The people that I have seen pull this off are people heavily into Finance, heavily into business, or heavily into computer programming and software engineering. The first time I built a website that generated $5,000 or $10,000 per month I sacrificed just about everything else in my life in order to pull it off, it was not the most FUN period of my life necessarily, but it was extremely productive and profitable that much I can tell you. I did this as a guy that was young, single and in college, and I was heavily into SEO, computers, business and finance, and even writing when I did this, all skills that were hugely beneficial to building up a company. Combine this with the fact that my business partner was a computer programmer, and that we were quite literally spending all of our time in order to pull this off and you have a recipe for success. Just my 2 cents on how hard it is, so use your alone time as productively as possible and minimize any time that is not productive.
Use Time With The Kids as Productively as Possible
Now obviously we’re not going to be Elon Musk and spend every second that you are with the kids on email, that is not necessary in order to pull off something like this. We are going for $7,000 to $10,000 per month here, not $350,000,000,000.00, it’s a little bit of a different ball game that he’s playing versus what we are doing. With this being said, I would always have your laptop of your phone nearby you. I am currently trying to get this website up to 1,000 blog posts, and I will tell you that I go as far as to minimize the 5 minutes or 10 minutes that I am in line at the grocery store in order to get more content up on the website in order to increase the amount of traffic it gets. Sometimes, if the line is 15 minutes or longer, I can get 500 or 800 words written out in my Google Docs on my phone. And yes, I realize this is a little extreme, but I probably have 20 or so blog posts up on this website that are now getting me traffic, and now making me lifetime income, because I decided to stare at my phone screen while I was at Publix instead of just spacing out while in line. Use your time as productively as possible, it will pay serious dividends over the long term.
How Single Moms Can Earn a Full Time Income From Home Quickly, Reinvest All Profits Back From The Website As Soon As They Roll In
Another suggestion I would give to you is to reinvest profits back into the website as soon as you start getting them. Your first commission check, your first $10 or $100 that you earn on the website, unless you desperately need it for expenses, I would recommend checking out freelance writing websites like textbroker.com, they will give you an article that is able to be posted, and once again that can give you lifetime income and traffic, for like $5. An extra 20 articles per month that you can post in 1 hour is HUGE for the growth of your website and for your overall productivity, and it is something that I would highly recommend doing, it is the pathway to building a sustainable affiliate business that generates you income for a lifetime.
Split Test for Maximum Profits
Once you are getting some sustainable revenue, say the $500 per month mark or so, and say at 40,000 to 50,000 pageviews per month or so, you should be testing different affiliate and ad placements, different products, different affiliate programs, and the like as much as possible in order to increase your revenue. I have seen websites go from $3,000 per month to $10,000 per month in a few weeks or months through just upgrading their monetization strategy. And while I generally advise focusing more on traffic as a way of scaling (if you get enough traffic the money will come, no one ever complains that their website has too much traffic, even if they aren’t necessarily making enough money off of it), split testing your monetization strategies can pay dividends over the long run, and can lead to you stacking up a lot of extra cash.
Get Used to Using WordPress.org and SEO Yoast
I have heard of a few rare cases of people succeeding with free platforms like say wordpress.com and blogger.com, but honestly these cases are few and far between. Many SEO’s and online marketers will tell you that having a .wordpress or a .blogspot domain will rank just as good as a website with a .com or a .org or .net or .io extension…but I can tell you that the data is just not there for this, and anyone with any experience in this field that you tell that to will laugh in your face if you tell them that because it is just not true. I have tried ranking with these websites before, and it is borderline impossible. The best way to make money online with SEO is through a long term, organic White Hat SEO strategy that you can use for the long haul, and involves setting up SEO Yoast and WordPress.org on your own dedicated domain with your own .com extension. This will allow you to achieve leaps and bounds over the competition that is using free wordpress.org or blogger domains, you just aren’t in the same league if you aren’t doing this. Get setup on a good host like Hostinger or Bluehost and make sure to set yourself up with WordPress.org and get setup on the usual plugins.
Start Building Your Email List At The Websites Inception
I will say that you should start building your email list up right from the start, and will add a bonus to this section, which is to build up ONE website at a time and stick to it. You can scale up into additional websites as you get better, it is a ton of fun and it is a great way to keep the creative juices flowing. But what I will tell you is that it is significantly easier to take a website from 10,000 pageviews to 20,000 pageviews, than it is to go from 0 to 10,000 pageviews per month. The first one is inevitable and will happen almost naturally, the second one is this impossible climb up the mountain where you have to find what’s working before you can tell if your efforts are even paying off, stick with one website that you put all of your effort into, trust me it will pay dividends in the long run.
What I mean from this blog post heading, is that you should give subscriber opt in forms at the setup of your website. Every 100 visitors or so can give you an email subscriber, and email subscribers are INCREDIBLY powerful. An email list of just 1,000 subscribers can yield you $100 to $300 per month in affiliate profits, use this money to scale up the content and traffic on your website and you can imagine how this would snowball.
Be Sure to Keep Costs Low and Opt for the Cheapest Possible Server Option
I made this mistake on my first website, I got up to say $3,000 or $4,000 per month and decided to upgrade to a dedicated server to increase my website response time and page load time to improve my SEO strategy and conversion rates. And sure this helped a little bit, but I didn’t have the scale to be spending 10% of my profits on server hosting, and as such, I didn’t make or save as much money as I could have, and the whole thing collapsed, always keep your expenses low and if you start raking in any real profits, say $3,000 to $4,000 per month, try to save money in your corporate account, it may just save your company at some point down the line.
How Single Moms Can Earn a Full Time Income From Home That Lasts a Lifetime, Be Sure to Only Use Unique Images to Assure Ad Revenue
Another tip I will tell you, and I actually made the mistake on this blog already, is to not use images from Google Images. Aside from opening yourself up to Copyright infringement claims (rare but it is an added risk to doing this) it makes it so that you cannot get accepted to the major advertising platforms, which is a huge way to make money online, say Adsense, Ezoic, and the like. You need to have only Creative Commons Unique Images from something like Flickr that are public stock images, and you need unique images with a disclaimer on them giving a link to the author. I am at about 400 blog posts right now, or about 400 images, so this is going to be a fun little project for me at some point in that I will need to swap out all of these.
