Today I'm delighted to be handing over the floor to Erica who blogs at Little Mummy. For anyone interested in earning an income online, Erica is proof that it is possible, and together with her business partner Antonia Chitty, there's an opportunity for you to do the same in 2011. Over to Erica:
I've been online doing this and that for nearly five years now. Over that time I've blogged, stumbled, tweeted, facebooked and ebayed.
I've followed the journey of many internet entrepreneurs from before I even started blogging. I always hoped it was possible to earn an income online but I wasn't convinced until I started doing it myself. In 2009 I replaced my part-time income with online income and I've continued to grow that in 2010. I don't have enough space here to write the full story, but I wrote about it here if you're interested - My Mumpreneur Journey.
Now I know what works I think there are tons of opportunities to earn a moderate income online and stay at home mums are in an amazing place to really capitalise on online opportunities. They don't have to risk leaving a job, they don't usually have to earn to pay the mortgage and they can work randomly around the clock in the early days to get things moving.
If you've built a successful mummy blog then you're in a position now to leverage those skills for profit and I'm not talking about making money from your mummy blog. If you're interested in making a moderate income in 2011 then perhaps it's time to consider taking your skills and applying them to a profitable niche.
Creating a blog on a niche topic, building an email list and affiliate marketing, selling your own products or selling advertising is, in my opinion, one of the best ways to make an income online today, and you probably already have most of the skills required already.
On January 17th I'm launching a membership site with my partner Antonia Chitty (author of The Mumpreneur Guide), the course is for people ready to start making their own income in 2011.
If you're ready to start making an income online, working (hard!) around your children's childcare needs then you can sign up for our free taster e-course here - Mum to Mumpreneur in a Month.
Thanks for reading and I hope that whatever your goals are for 2011 that you achieve them and more!
