Women just as much as men can become successful moneymakers in addition to their home responsibility. They can make extra money from home through various means. Those means range from content writing jobs to building a new website, to data entry work from home opportunities. Here are the best 4 work at home small business ideas for women.
1. Content writing
Content writing is basically writing rich articles with a purpose behind it. Many people who are not able to write their own content tend to hire those who can. This ability can become a nice source of income by offering your services through forums or websites such as Fiverr.com.
2. Building a website
Building a new website goes hand in hand with content writing. A new website needs rich and original content designed to attract visitors. The content though needs to be relevant to the website name and niche. Content writing targets a specific population and has to be written strategically to attract, inform, and be optimized to be indexed by google.
3. Sell handcrafted goods
Another great way to make money online is by selling handcrafted goods. Whether you are an excellent knitter, an accomplished artist, a skilled jewelry maker or a woodcarver extraordinaire, you can put your talents to work and build a successful business.
For this type of business to be lucrative, you need excellent marketing skills, confidence in your handiwork and a willingness to price your items high enough to make a profit. Keep in mind that the market for handcrafted goods is highly competitive. However, once you build a name for yourself you will typically get repeat buyers that help sustain your business.
4. Transcription service
You may also want to consider starting a transcription service. This type of business allows you to put your typing skills to work transcribing audio files into written text. To excel at transcription, you should be an exceptionally fast typist and have strong listening skills.
Before beginning work, you should invest in a good pair of headphones and a foot pedal for your computer. You can either go to work as an independent contractor for an existing transcription service, or you can solicit clients on your own. The only real downside to this type of business is that over time it can lead to repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
