Are you a mom looking to monetize your expertise but don’t want to spend a lifetime growing a social media following, launching a blog or thinking of ideas to post? Consider becoming a mom creator.
With the rise of social commerce there are a number of ways that you can start monetizing your interests, expertise and/or passions without all the heavy lifting.
Three simple steps to getting started quickly:
1. It really helps to have a topic in mind that you’re an expert at, interested in or passionate about. We’re all experts at something in our own right, you just need to brainstorm what that something is – maybe it’s cooking or baking, maybe it’s fashion or maybe it’s homeschooling.
PRO TIP: Start making a list of topics not just where you’re an expert but where you have personally had success and where you can help someone achieve success as well.
2. As a next step, take a look around at the types of products you’re using every day. Think about the products that are associated with the things that you love doing from step 1. What are the products you just can’t live without? What are the products you love talking about and organically recommend? What are the products that have helped you achieve success in a particular area? 3. Create an account on one or more social commerce platforms. All of these are affiliate marketing platforms that enable you to monetize your product recommendations and there are no fees to join.
