If you want to stay home for good to take care of your children then why not get your craft on and make these best-selling craft ideas! “></p><p>Does your ideal weekend include wandering through rummage sales, thrift stores, and craft stores dreaming <a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/crafts-that-make-money/”>up new craft ideas</a>?<span id=”more-17887″></span></p>
<p>Have you ever thought about putting those crafty skills to good use?</p>
<p>Did you know…you can cash in on trending crafts to make and sell.</p>
<p>Right from the comfort of your own home, even with the kids running around (or during nap time).</p>
<p>Let’s go through this post on how to create wonderful crafts that sell instantly!</p>

<h2>Where to Start?</h2>
<p>One of the best things about being able to create best-selling crafts is that you don’t need a lot to start with. You can easily start making money from <a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/mason-jar-crafts-to-sell/”>selling your crafts</a> with what you already have in your house.</p>
<p>Got some paint?</p>
<p>Can you find some old palettes?</p>
<p>Got some balls of yarn laying around?</p>
<p>It’s perfectly fine to start with what you already have.</p>
<p>You can also get together with other moms and so a craft swap or pool your resources together to make crafts to sell together.</p>
<p>And don’t worry if you aren’t a great crafter. I know for me, I haven’t done any DIY projects but when I was pregnant I found knitting to pass the time.</p>
<p>Little did I know that I found knitting fun and easy! I was able to craft some cute hats for my twins!</p>

<h2>How to Get Started Selling Crafts from Home</h2>
<p>Take note…</p>
<p>Competition is a GOOD thing!</p>
<p>When there are already people selling a particular item and there is competition for it, you know that it’s a popular item and people are buying it!</p>
<p>Now obviously you don’t want to copy what others are doing and you want to put your unique spin on it. <strong>This is called your unique selling point.</strong></p>
<p>How are you going to make your items better?</p>
<p>How are you going to set yourself apart from other people selling the same type of things?</p>
<p>Pick one platform to start with, don’t try and be everywhere, it will only lead to burnout.</p>
<p>A couple of great places to start are on TikTok, Instagram, Etsy, and Facebook Marketplace.</p>
<p>For example, one popular tactic that I have seen a lot of lately is people showing process videos on TikTok and then linking their Etsy store in the bio. This is a great way to get eyes on your products fast!</p>
<p>Once you find the right marketplace to sell your crafts easily, you have to go and source long-lasting tools and items so that people WOW over you hand-made jewelry or back-to-school plaques.</p>
<p>You can defiantly go to Amazon to <a href=”https://amzn.to/3mzopOl”>find bulk items</a> for a solid price.</p>
<p><a href=”https://www.amazon.com/Sterling-Hypo-allergenic-Findings-Silicone-Stoppers/dp/B0829NMGQ5?crid=1SVHRL62V54XT&amp;dchild=1&amp;keywords=French+Hook+Ear+Wires&amp;qid=1635779587&amp;sprefix=french+hook+ear+wires%2Caps%2C102&amp;sr=8-2-spons&amp;psc=1&amp;smid=AD03O7Q2FVQGS&amp;spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyRDRPTFE2WkY0N04zJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTIxODk1UThYMjdWUjhHS0pMJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTEwMjE3MTIyWUJaQ0hIMUMyMjdPJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ%3D%3D&amp;linkCode=li3&amp;tag=twinsmom-20&amp;linkId=02c1945cac54d598df043f4205557f9f&amp;language=en_US&amp;ref_=as_li_ss_il” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”><img class=”aligncenter” src=”https://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&amp;ASIN=B0829NMGQ5&amp;Format=_SL250_&amp;ID=AsinImage&amp;MarketPlace=US&amp;ServiceVersion=20070822&amp;WS=1&amp;tag=twinsmom-20&amp;language=en_US” border=”0″></a><img loading=”lazy” src=”https://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=twinsmom-20&amp;language=en_US&amp;l=li3&amp;o=1&amp;a=B0829NMGQ5″ alt width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″></p>
<p>Finally, I want you to think about how your craft item is consumable. What I mean is, is your craft a one-time thing that is placed on the wall or is your craft something that is done in a couple of months and has to be bought again?</p>
<p>To help you make more money, make sure to make crafts that need to be bought repeatedly.&nbsp;</p>
<h2>Best Selling Crafts</h2>
<p>There are certain crafts that are timeless and you can make and sell pretty much any time of the year.</p>
<p>Many of these crafts that you can make and sell require very little equipment to get started and are selling well on platforms like Etsy.</p>
<p>When looking for best-selling crafts, you want to look for things that you can sell year-round or add something to, to make them a seasonal item. Making small changes to a regular item to make it seasonal has the potential to drastically increase your sales.</p>
<p>While this list is by no means exhaustive, it is a great place to start.</p>
<p>While you might not be looking to turn selling your crafts into a full-blown business, you should run it as a business from the start.</p>
<p>This is a great way to put you into a money making mindset rather than just being a hobby.</p>
<h3>1. Bath Bombs</h3>

<p>Bath bombs are so easy to start making.</p>
<p>They are inexpensive to get started and also consumable. This means that when people love what they buy from you they can <strong>become repeat customers.</strong></p>
<p>A quick search on Etsy should spark some great ideas.</p>
<p>From bath bombs that contain crystals to open chakras to unicorn-shaped bath bombs that will turn your tub into a rainbow wonderland!</p>
<p>While you might not become <a href=”https://www.thepennyhoarder.com/make-money/da-bomb-bath-fizzers/”>multimillionaires like the sisters that created Da Bomb Bath Fizzers</a>, you’ll make a few bucks with this best-selling craft.</p>
<h3>2. Keychains</h3>

<p>People love to keep special things with them on their keys. Pictures of their kids, keychains with sentimental or funny sayings, or their initials.</p>
<p>There are tons of different kinds of keychains that you can make and sell.</p>
<p>Stamped metal, leather, <a href=”https://amzn.to/3o56RJN”>tassesls</a>, resin, cord, beaded, recycled license plates, the list goes on.</p>
<p><a href=”https://www.amazon.com/Bookmark-Tassels-Crafts-Keychain-Graduation/dp/B092QKHZ4Q?crid=2W4OA2OJIX5N7&amp;dchild=1&amp;keywords=tassels&amp;qid=1635780031&amp;sprefix=tassel%2Caps%2C120&amp;sr=8-1-spons&amp;psc=1&amp;smid=A1PFB3N212FP02&amp;spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzTkY5SlVDV1RDNURVJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMDE1MTQ5MjJOODJNQ1pVOTJESCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMTI3MjI0MlYwSTEzQlRURVZKSCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU%3D&amp;linkCode=li3&amp;tag=twinsmom-20&amp;linkId=a3383e54be3c08cd3e34e41d73bbfef4&amp;language=en_US&amp;ref_=as_li_ss_il” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”><img class=”aligncenter” src=”https://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&amp;ASIN=B092QKHZ4Q&amp;Format=_SL250_&amp;ID=AsinImage&amp;MarketPlace=US&amp;ServiceVersion=20070822&amp;WS=1&amp;tag=twinsmom-20&amp;language=en_US” border=”0″></a><img loading=”lazy” src=”https://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=twinsmom-20&amp;language=en_US&amp;l=li3&amp;o=1&amp;a=B092QKHZ4Q” alt width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″></p>
<h3>3. Jewelry</h3>

<p>Jewelry always sells really well on platforms like Etsy, Shopify, and Instagram.</p>
<p>When it comes to the different types of jewelry, there are literally thousands of different styles and materials to choose from.</p>
<p>You can create jewelry out of polymer clay (more on that below), personalized hand-stamped jewelry, jewelry you create using a laser cutter or Cricut, and even <a href=”https://www.etsy.com/shop/LaitSousLaLune?ref=simple-shop-header-name&amp;listing_id=918031776″>breastmilk jewelry</a>!</p>
<h3>4. Hair Accessories</h3>

<p>Hair accessories can include items such as headbands, hair ties, hair bows, head wraps, barrettes and so on. You can make these items for adults and or children.</p>
<p>Hairbows for little girls are certainly hot sellers in just about every season.</p>
<p>This is also a great opportunity to make seasonal items to increase sales during certain times of the year.</p>
<h3>5. Candles</h3>

<p>One of the great things about candles is that they are consumable!</p>
<p>Again, this will give you a higher chance of getting repeating customers that keep coming back again and again.</p>
<p>Candles are pretty darn easy to make and there are so many different options.</p>
<p>You could make candles that have personalized labels on them, that are shaped like bust statues, or candles that use soda or beer cans as holders. <a href=”https://www.etsy.com/search?q=unique%20candles”>Check out these unique candles on Etsy for some inspiration.</a></p>
<h3>6. Personal Care Products</h3>
<p>Now this is a very wide range of products that could include anything from lip balm, body lotion, body scrub, bath salts, supplements, soap, beard oil, hair oil, and so on.</p>
<p>People are tuning more now to small-batch, handmade, natural products than ever before.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Some items you will need to make these personal care products:</p>

<h2>Trending Crafts to Make and Sell</h2>
<p>Of course, when something is trending it is going to be a hot selling item.</p>
<p>TikTok is a great place to start your research if you are looking for what’s hot and what’s on-trend right now!</p>
<h3>1. Polymer Clay and Resin Jewelry</h3>

<p>I am simply amazed at the things people can do with clay and resin.</p>
<p>When it comes to making jewelry, it’s fairly inexpensive to get started.</p>
<p>You can pick up tools at your local craft store or <a href=”https://amzn.to/3pUqWom”>order kits on Amazon</a>.</p>
<p>Fun and funky earrings are a great place to start.</p>
<h3>2. Clay, Ceramic, and Cement Pots</h3>

<p>Many people are increasing their plant collections. Think about this, plant care is a commitment.</p>
<p>As plants grow they need to be repotted and propagated to make new plants, which also need pots.</p>
<p>Are you seeing the trend?</p>
<p>While working with clay and ceramic you are going to need things like a throwing wheel and a kiln, you can easily make pots out of cement for very little starting cost.</p>
<h3>3. Tufted Rugs</h3>

<p>I first saw this trend on…can you guess? TikTok.</p>
<p>It requires some canvas and an <a href=”https://amzn.to/3myzkbf”>electric tufting gun</a>.</p>
<p>It’s less scary than it sounds and sort of looks like a painting with yarn. You can take pretty much any picture and turn it into a rug. <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_matYB5rdZA”>Check out this fun tutorial here.</a></p>
<h3>4. Tie-Dying</h3>
<p>Yup, you read that right.</p>
<p>The popular trend from the 60’s and 70’s has come back strong as ever. I even bought some tie-dye clothing!</p>
<div><figure id=”attachment_17896″ aria-describedby=”caption-attachment-17896″ class=”wp-caption aligncenter”><img loading=”lazy” class=”wp-image-17896 size-medium_large” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/tie-dye-craft-768×480.jpg” alt width=”768″ height=”480″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/tie-dye-craft-768×480.jpg 768w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/tie-dye-craft-300×188.jpg 300w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/tie-dye-craft-1024×640.jpg 1024w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/tie-dye-craft-648×405.jpg 648w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/tie-dye-craft.jpg 1280w” sizes=”(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px”><figcaption id=”caption-attachment-17896″ class=”wp-caption-text”>Wearing tie-dye clothing</figcaption></figure></div>
<p>This is another trending craft to sell that is super easy to get started.</p>
<p>There are several different methods you can do, such as the traditional tie-dye, ice dying, and bleach dying.</p>
<p>You can also experiment with using natural dyes from food.</p>
<p>A fun and eco-friendly way to create your crafts.</p>
<h3>5. Farmhouse/Leaner Signs</h3>

<p>Not only is this craft super on trend to sell right now, they are super easy and super cheap to make!</p>
<p>All you need to get started is some reclaimed wood and some paint!</p>
<p>People pay top dollar for large signs that look weathered and worn.</p>
<p>You can start with signs that have general sayings like “welcome,” or “family,” with a definition.</p>
<p>Being able to make custom and personalized signs can put even more in your pocket.</p>
<h3>6. Face Masks</h3>

<p>No, not the kind to make your skin smoother (although that’s a good idea too) the kind everyone wears to protect themselves.</p>
<p>While face masks are meant for protection, they have also become a fashion statement.</p>
<p>People want to show off their personalities while staying safe.</p>
<h3>7. Upcycled Vintage</h3>

<p>Most people don’t realize how many textiles are thrown out every single day.</p>
<p>Do your part to help save the plant and make others feel great about themselves in the process.</p>
<p>Upcycling old clothes is not only sustainable but fun!</p>
<p>It’s so satisfying to take one thing and turn it into something else.</p>
<p>This could be updating an old dress into something more fashionable or using torn leggings to make into baby leggings or even a part of a Halloween costume!</p>
<p>This is what I did when my daughter was a cat and the broken leggings was her tail!</p>
<h3>8. Tote Bags</h3>

<p>Another great, low-cost idea to start with.</p>
<p>You can make tote bags out of old clothes, plastic bags, feed bags, paper, and even old blankets.</p>
<p>You can add beading, screen print, or hand paint bags and sell them.</p>
<h3>9. Macrame</h3>

<p>Macrame has come back into home decor!</p>
<p>Yes, those adorable little macrame plant holders that your grandmother used to have are totally on trend right now!</p>
<p>But this isn’t your grandma’s macrame, it’s at a whole new level now.</p>
<p>People are making some really amazing wall hanging and other home decor like a planter holder!</p>
<p>It’s a simple to learn skill that you can turn into beautiful art.</p>
<p>Again, <a href=”https://www.etsy.com/search?q=macrame”>check out Etsy for some inspiration</a>.</p>
<h2>Amazing Best-Selling Craft Ideas for Stay at Home Moms</h2>
<p>When it comes to best selling crafts, there are seriously just so many options.</p>
<p>Whether you choose trending crafts to make and sell or want to make the world a better place by upcycling what others think is garbage, you go for it (and make some cash in the process)!</p>

4 Ways to Get Your Blog Noticed + Influencers Share How to Make Your Blog Popular https://twinsmommy.com/ways-to-get-your-blog-noticed/
https://twinsmommy.com/?p=17710
<p>One of the most popular questions I receive from my subscribers is about ways to get your blog noticed. Many know that eyeballs to their blog means opportunities to make money.</p>
<p>If you’ve been blogging for a year or more and still have no traction, no blog traffic and no money, is it possible to turn a blog like that around?</p>
<p><img loading=”eager” class=”pin aligncenter wp-image-17801 size-medium_large” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/get-blog-noticed-pin-768×1152.jpg” alt width=”768″ height=”1152″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/get-blog-noticed-pin-768×1152.jpg 768w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/get-blog-noticed-pin-200×300.jpg 200w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/get-blog-noticed-pin-683×1024.jpg 683w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/get-blog-noticed-pin-270×405.jpg 270w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/get-blog-noticed-pin.jpg 1000w” sizes=”(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px” data-pin-description=”Get noticed on your blog to be successful!”></p><p>Yes! I’ve done it and others have to.</p>
<p>Some abandon their low performing blog and start a new one and others use the lessons they learned from a low performing blog to have a popular blog.</p>
<p>I’ve been fortunate that my first blog got noticed and created income for me.</p>
<p>To help you figure out the ways to get your blog noticed, I’ve compiled four solid tips and had six influencers to share how they create a popular blog.</p>
<h2 class=”clear-before”>1. Networking is Essential</h2>
<p>Look –</p>
<p>Blogging isn’t in a vacuum. You don’t just publish a blog post, get Tailwind to schedule it, share it a few times on social and be successful.</p>
<p>The REAL reason why some blogs are popular and others don’t get noticed at all is because of networking.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Networking encompasses many things but the idea of it is connecting and collaborating with other bloggers in your space. This is exactly what I did to get Twins Mommy noticed in the mom blog community.</p>
<p>My knowledge up until that point was freelance writing and digital marketing. I did not spend time in the mom blog world, so when I created Twins Mommy, I knew I had to reach out to other mom bloggers as a way to get noticed.</p>
<p>One thing I did early on was to feature other mom bloggers in my content. I did rounds up of<a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/succeed-work-home-mom/”> blog examples of work from home blogs</a>, I featured <a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/blogs-mompreneurs-should-devour-now/”>other mompreneur blogs</a> as well as <a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/freelance-services-stay-home-mom/”>service based blogs</a>, and moms who were <a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/mama-bosses-monetize-blog/”>making money blogging</a>.</p>
<p>I then outdid myself <a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/moms-reveal-accomplish-day/”>and asked 40 moms</a> on how they accomplished their day when juggling everything.</p>
<p>So, how did I get forty + moms to contribute to some of these roundups?</p>
<h3>I Commented on Their Blogs</h3>
<p>For some of these contributors, I went to their blog, read some of their blog posts and made an effort to comment on their blog. This one thing can help you get on the radar of other bloggers.</p>
<p>I know for me, when I see bloggers commenting on my post I sometimes check out their blog. And, if their blog is amazing, I’ll be sure to bookmark it for some reading time and possible collaboration ideas in the future.</p>
<h3>I Joined Their Community</h3>
<p>One thing I did without realizing it was networking, was join other blogger’s Facebook groups, Pinterest groups or subscribe to their Youtube channels.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Doing this one thing can help you gain:</p>
<h3>I Featured Them on My Blog</h3>
<p>I mentioned already in this post how I created roundups, and shared the best types of blogs, Youtube channels or resources.</p>
<p>Doing this one thing has resulted in backlinks and get my blog noticed easily. This is probably the most “removed” option for networking. There is no need to ask other bloggers if you can feature them and the content comes easy when you do these types of blog posts.</p>
<p>So even if you are hesitant to reach out to bloggers, you can fill your blog with a lot of roundups like I did!&nbsp;</p>

<h2>2. Give More Than You Ask</h2>
<p>One of the funniest things about blogging to me was sharing tips, advice and hacks. Before I was a blogger I was a teacher and teaching is innate for me. I love teaching and helping and for bloggers, this is crucial to gaining an audience that trusts you.</p>
<p>One of the first things I “gave” to my audience was a blogging checklist. <a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/ideas-grow-email-list/”>This was an opt-in freebie</a> that helped me gain my first few hundred subscribers.</p>
<p>Other ways you can give more than you ask are to:</p>
<ul><li>Start a Facebook page and <a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/facebook-live-beginner/”>do Facebook lives</a></li>
<li>Develop many opt-in freebies like email courses, eBooks, video training and more</li>
<li>Go in depth on a topic that many other bloggers don’t share</li>
<li>Turn your blog <a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/open-up-blog-for-guest-bloggers/”>into a contributor blog</a> and let other bloggers share their tips</li>
<li>Create products for them!</li>
</ul><h2>3. Leverage Other Bloggers</h2>
<p>When you start your blog you’re thrusted into a blogging community. It’s perfectly okay to leverage other bloggers to help get your blog noticed.</p>
<p>This is called guest posting and this not only helped me gain traffic, <a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/start-freelance-blogging/”>but as a freelance blogger</a>, I gained clients and made money writing.</p>
<p><a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/sites-for-moms-that-pay-100-to-write/”>Search sites that pay</a> and find a publication that is similar to your blogging niche. From there, decide on a blog topic that is popular for their blog but compliments their blog content as well.</p>
<p>For example, if I wanted to guest post on a homeschool blog, I would go to Buzzsumo to check their popular post (or go into Ahrefs to see their #1 post that brings in the most organic traffic) and base my blog topics off of that post.</p>
<h2>4. Contribute to Roundups</h2>
<p>Up until this point the tactics to get your blog noticed has been more centric – YOU are featuring other bloggers, YOU are pitching to guest post and YOU are creating more things to share to your audience.</p>
<p>Well, for this last tactic, you will be helping other bloggers with their content, but similar to guest posting, this will open the doors to a new audience and traffic potential.</p>
<p>How do you get involved with roundups? An easy way to find roundups is in my Facebook group, Ready Set Blog for Traffic (from Mom to Mompreneur).</p>
<p>Many mom bloggers ask for roundups or guest contributors to help them publish content and grow their blog.</p>
<p><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-medium_large wp-image-17748 aligncenter” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/roundup-768×132.jpg” alt width=”768″ height=”132″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/roundup-768×132.jpg 768w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/roundup-300×51.jpg 300w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/roundup-720×124.jpg 720w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/roundup.jpg 886w” sizes=”(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px”></p>
<p>So, for the person publishing the roundup they may go and email all the contributors the post and may ask if they could share it, helping her gain a new audience and traffic.</p>
<p>For you, if you contribute to a roundup that has a high domain authority, you can gain a nice backlink. For example, <a href=”https://www.bluehost.com/blog/experts-tell-us-the-best-plugins-for-your-small-business-website/”>I contributed to a roundup for Bluehost</a> – a popular hosting company.</p>
<p>Bluehost has a high domain authority and helped my blog gain more authority in my niche. This will help me get noticed! Yay!</p>

<h2>6 Influencers Share How to Have a Popular Blog</h2>
<p>With some proven tactics to help you get noticed online, I’ve asked several influencers how to have a popular blog. Since they have created a successful blogs and are known in the blogging industry, I thought they could provide some highly valuable insight into content marketing.</p>
<p><em>*Note: you will see different view points on Google traffic, social traffic and blogging as an industry. This should tell you there isn’t one way to make a popular blog; it’s a collection of ways that is needed.</em></p>
<h3>1. Adam Connell – Blogging Wizard</h3>
<p><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-full wp-image-17807 alignleft” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/adam-connel.jpg” alt width=”200″ height=”200″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/adam-connel.jpg 200w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/adam-connel-150×150.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 200px) 100vw, 200px”>Answer: <strong>Include influencers in the content creation process.</strong></p>
<p>Why? Because when someone contributes to your content, they have skin in the game. Success for your content becomes success for them.</p>
<p>As a result, they’ll be far more likely to share your content.</p>
<p>So how can you use this approach? At a basic level, you could reach out to a few industry influencers for quotes to include in an upcoming article.</p>
<p>Alternatively, you could take the group interview approach like Elna has done with this very post.</p>
<p>Or you could do full-on interviews with experts in your niche and include them as part of your online course. Then incentivise sharing further by inviting them to become an affiliate.</p>
<p>But regardless of how you include influencers in your content, it is important to consider how you can&nbsp;<a href=”https://bloggingwizard.com/content-repurposing/”>repurpose the content you create</a> –&nbsp;both with and without influencers.</p>
<p>For example, by repurposing a group interview like this into an exclusive infographic for another website, I was able to get an extra 30K+ visits and 2K+ social shares.</p>
<p>Always be thinking how you can get more mileage out of every piece of content you publish.</p>
<h3>2. Julia McCoy – Content Hacker</h3>
<p><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-full wp-image-17811 alignleft” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/julia-mccoy.jpg” alt width=”200″ height=”200″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/julia-mccoy.jpg 200w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/julia-mccoy-150×150.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 200px) 100vw, 200px”>For many new and sometimes even seasoned bloggers, it’s easy to get lost in the “bells and whistles” aspects of blogging – focusing on having the snazziest design, the coolest features, or launching that overnight campaign or Insta Reel to try and get more traffic.</p>
<p>While all of that certainly has its place, nothing replaces the power of <a href=”https://contenthacker.com/julias-six-step-framework/”>great content writing itself</a>.</p>
<p><strong>Learn to write well, research with accuracy, and create thorough, informative content tailored to your audience</strong>; do that regularly and consistently, and as they say, “they will come!”</p>
<p>Focus on the writing aspect of your blog, and be consistent – if your goal is to publish on Tuesdays, don’t skip that goal.</p>
<p>Make it a priority to publish writing you’re proud of. This will get you further than almost any other blogging tactic.</p>
<h3>3. Ryan Biddulph – Blogging From Paradise</h3>
<p><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-full wp-image-17812 alignleft” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/ryan-biddulph-.jpg” alt width=”200″ height=”200″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/ryan-biddulph-.jpg 200w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/ryan-biddulph–150×150.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 200px) 100vw, 200px”>Making <a href=”https://www.bloggingfromparadise.com/”>your blog popular</a> seems to happen organically if you think upside-down compared to most bloggers.</p>
<p>Most try to make their blog popular by promoting ONLY their blog on social media and linking only to their blog posts, via inter-linking.</p>
<p>But this usually does not work because few folks gravitate toward self-centered bloggers who promote only themselves.</p>
<p>Think upside-down: make other bloggers popular by:</p>
<ul><li>Promoting their blogs through Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn</li>
<li>&nbsp;Promoting their blogs by dropping backlinks to their blogs through your blog posts and guest posts</li>
<li>Commenting genuinely on their blogs to add content (comments are content) credibility and social proof to their blogs</li>
</ul><p>Doing these things generously, patiently and persistently draws blogging buddies to you. Bloggers who appreciate your kindness begin to befriend, promote and endorse you, making your blog popular.</p>
<p>But one critical step remains; in order to make your blog popular you need to show off some serious blogging skills. Popular bloggers are polished, skilled, credible and trustworthy. Blogging buddies cannot promote unskilled, untrusted bloggers; their credibility is on the line.</p>
<p><strong>Become a skilled, confident, popular blogger by writing diligently, publishing helpful posts persistently and by seeing this journey through for 1000’s of hours spanning years.</strong></p>
<p>Becoming popular is actually 100% about generously helping people and developing your skills and virtually 0 percent about trying to gain fame, exposure and popularity for yourself.</p>
<p>Again; this is upside-down thinking at its finest.</p>
<h3>4. Sarah Titus</h3>
<p><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-full wp-image-17814 alignleft” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/sarah-titus.jpg” alt width=”200″ height=”200″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/sarah-titus.jpg 200w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/sarah-titus-150×150.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 200px) 100vw, 200px”>One of the first questions my mom asked me was, “What if you run out of things to say?”</p>
<p>GASP! “Oh no!” I thought to myself.</p>
<p>What if I DO run out of things to <a href=”https://www.sarahtitus.com/home/”>say on my blog</a>? Will all the work I’ve done crash and burn and I’ll lose everything in time??? Ahhh!</p>
<p>That’s what happened eight years ago when I told my mom I wanted to start a blog.</p>
<p>I didn’t know much about blogging at the time. I had no idea where to start or even HOW to start.</p>
<p>I just knew I was called to do it. I wanted my life to matter. I wanted to help other people and make a difference in others lives.</p>
<p>After all these years, I can tell you, I’ve never once run out of things to say. 😊</p>
<p>You might be thinking, “Okay, this chick is a chatterbox,” right?</p>
<p>WRONG. I’m an absolute, 100% verified INTROVERT! Haha.</p>
<p><strong>Talking to people is hard for me. I get all stumbled and tripped up. I get nervous and feel like no one would listen to me anyway so why bother.</strong></p>
<p>After all, I’ve been abused ALL my life from my mom, my ex-husband, and a lot of so-called past friends who think THEY should be able to run my life for me.</p>
<p>&nbsp;Anyone relate?</p>
<p>Do you have people in your life trying to tell you what to do? Cage you? As if you can’t make solid decisions on your own?</p>
<p>Here’s the trick…don’t let them control you!</p>
<p>My secret to staying relevant over the years and being highly engaging to my audience, for never running out of things to say, for always having a super popular blog that everyone LOVES to read, for creating products that sell like hotcakes (did I mention I make 7-figures/year?), for doing everything I do online, comes down to ONE THING…</p>
<p><strong>SERVE…YOUR…AUDIENCE!</strong></p>
<p>No, I’m not serving Google, okay.</p>
<p>They can’t control me. I’m not here on this planet to serve a machine, a bot, Google, SEO, or anything else like that.</p>
<p>Nor am I here to serve social media. Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram can’t control me either. Call me a rebel but <strong>if I’m going to make money online, I’m going to do things MY way.</strong> I’m not going to live in a box someone else creates.</p>
<p>I’m not here to serve a bot or some fat cat at the top. <strong>I’m here to serve YOU.</strong></p>
<p>And in serving YOU, Google loves me (I get over 130k traffics/month from Google alone. Pinterest is over 95k/month).</p>
<p>I’m not saying I don’t GET traffic from those sources. I’m not saying don’t market your blog. Absolutely market your blog, but WRITE for the PEOPLE. FOCUS on the people.</p>
<p>Now the question becomes, WHO do you write for? WHAT people? Maybe you don’t have an audience yet.</p>
<p>Get one. If you have 3 people that follow you, talk to THEM. If you have 50, talk to THEM. How many people you have, talk to THEM.</p>
<p>Next, talk to the people <strong>you WANT</strong> to serve.</p>
<p>I don’t like writing blog posts on certain topics. I don’t like the people it attracts, and even though it would be super advantageous of me to do so, financially-speaking, I don’t do it. Why?</p>
<p>Because I end up burned out and not happy. <strong>Write for the people you want to attract.</strong> The people you like to serve. The people you WANT to surround yourself with. Be specific.</p>
<p>When you do that, THOSE people will have a way of finding you.</p>
<p>They will sign up for your newsletters and become your best friends because they feel connected to you. You met a need in them and they come back, they tell their friends and soon you have a LOT of people to write to.</p>
<p>Yes, do SEO, yes market your blog, do social media, but <strong>never forget who you’re serving.</strong></p>
<p>Never forget why you’re here. You’re not here for a bot. You’re here to help make people’s lives better, whether that’s through a recipe, a blog post, a course, a printable you create, or anything else.</p>
<p><strong>Don’t get bogged down with all the to-do’s of blogging or feeling like you’re missing something major if you don’t follow everything everyone says. Just serve YOUR people. Put your head down and just focus on THEM!</strong></p>
<p>Ask them what THEY want. Send out a Google doc and ask them what they want to learn from you. Ask your friends what they want to learn from you and just start talking.</p>
<p><strong>You’ll never run out of things to say, because there’s always SOMEONE to serve with a new problem YOU can help them with.</strong></p>
<p>Start with one topic, then write for another topic, if need be.</p>
<p>My blog started out teaching saving money, then I taught blogging, now I teach how to make passive income through Shopify creating printables.</p>
<p>Whatever you do, write the heck out of it. Write every angle, every question, every single thing on that topic people ask you about and you feel led to write about.</p>
<p><strong>You don’t have to be someone else to be a popular blogger and make millions.</strong> The key is being yourself and serving the people you were put on this Earth to serve. The key is…YOU!!!!!</p>
<p>Your unique ideas.</p>
<p>Your take on things.</p>
<p>Your ideas, values, opinions.</p>
<p>The key is you!</p>

<p><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-full wp-image-17817 alignleft” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/anna-anna.jpeg” alt width=”200″ height=”200″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/anna-anna.jpeg 200w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/anna-anna-150×150.jpeg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 200px) 100vw, 200px”>If you are wanting to have a <a href=”http://realwaystoearnmoneyonline.com”>really popular blog</a>, remember that Google is your friend. And not just because you want to rank highly for the topic you’ve written about, but because you can use it for valuable research.</p>
<p>Before you begin writing your blog post, type the topic into the search bar on Google and pay attention to the “People Also Ask” and the similar search queries sections on the search results page.</p>
<p>The “People Also Ask” questions could be included in your content.</p>
<p>This will not only make your content more informative, but it will also give you more chances to rank highly for your topic.</p>
<p>And if you include some of the similar search queries into your content (keywords), again, these are more opportunities to rank for more keywords related to your topic.</p>
<p>Ranking highly on Google for your blog post will help to make your blog popular.</p>
<p>But remember it can take time and you’ll need more than just a handful of blog posts on your blog before Google will see you as an authority.</p>
<h3>6. Ashlee Anderson – Work From Home Happiness</h3>
<p class=”p1″><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-full wp-image-17922 alignleft” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/ashlee-anderson.jpg” alt width=”200″ height=”200″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/ashlee-anderson.jpg 200w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/ashlee-anderson-150×150.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 200px) 100vw, 200px”>For me, It was all about <strong>being authentic</strong> to myself and building a brand.</p>
<p class=”p1″>To do this, I created a blog brand board that I printed out and still have displayed on my desk to this day. It’s a good reminder to stay true to my blog’s mission.</p>
<p class=”p1″>After all, the readers that show up month after month and year after year do so because they relate to the <a href=”https://workfromhomehappiness.com/how-to-become-a-content-marketer/”>content I create</a>.</p>
<p class=”p1″>If I suddenly deviated from what they’re used to, they would stop showing up and that would be a disservice to them.&nbsp;</p>
<p class=”p1″>I think popular blogs also provide tons of value and that doesn’t necessarily have to come in the form of free content.</p>
<p class=”p1″>A site’s usability is super important and can really make all the difference in whether a blog will get noticed or recommended.</p>
<p class=”p1″>There’s nothing worse than landing on a blog only to find it is bogged down by ads, cluttered with pop ups and overwhelmed with so many affiliate links that you can’t tell what’s paid for and what’s authentic.</p>
<p class=”p1″>I always focus on usability design over paid ads.&nbsp;</p>
<p class=”p1″>I’ve also found it’s really helpful to be out there, and that’s kind of hard for me as an introvert 🙂</p>
<p class=”p1″>I’ve also found blogging to be the easy part of having a blog because all you have to do is write.</p>
<p class=”p1″>But that’s not really going to get you noticed or help your blog gain traction.</p>
<p class=”p1″>So, it might be scary but always say “yes” to interview requests or invites to speak.</p>
<p class=”p1″>I was asked to do a virtual interview with the Wall Street Journal on the subject of remote job interviews. I was absolutely terrified and wanted to say no but I pushed myself to do it and I’m so glad I did.</p>
<p class=”p1″>It resulted in so many wonderful connections and invitations to speak.</p>
<p class=”p1″>This really helped elevate my blog to “expert” status in ways I never could have on my own.&nbsp;</p>
<p class=”p1″>Virtual volunteering is another amazing way to gain popularity and visibility with your blog.</p>
<p class=”p1″>I volunteer my career coaching services to a foundation a few hours a month and they give me shout outs every so often in press releases and the PR gets picked up by so many popular publications that give my blog a tremendous SEO boost.&nbsp;</p>
<p class=”p1″>I think it’s important for bloggers to remember that their core blog is just a very small part of their overall&nbsp;blogging strategy.</p>
<p class=”p1″>They need to constantly be looking for other opportunities to shed a positive light on their blog, whether that’s volunteering their services, engaging with their audience on social media, making quality content to sell, focusing on user experience on site and usability design, establishing a brand voice and identity, showing up regularly by producing consistent content – these are all helpful. Oh, and step outside of your comfort zone.</p>
<p class=”p1″>Say, yes to things that scare you, that means it’s probably worth doing 🙂</p>

14 Jobs for 10 Year Olds – Kids Can Make Money https://twinsmommy.com/jobs-for-10-year-olds/
https://twinsmommy.com/?p=17515
<p>As a mom to two young twins, I do my best to try and teach them how to be responsible with money.</p>
<p>Part of that is letting them explore different jobs for kids and ways that they can earn their own money.<span id=”more-17515″></span></p>
<p><img loading=”eager” class=”pin aligncenter wp-image-17567 size-medium_large” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/jobs-kids-pin-768×1152.jpg” alt width=”768″ height=”1152″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/jobs-kids-pin-768×1152.jpg 768w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/jobs-kids-pin-200×300.jpg 200w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/jobs-kids-pin-683×1024.jpg 683w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/jobs-kids-pin-270×405.jpg 270w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/jobs-kids-pin.jpg 1000w” sizes=”(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px” data-pin-description=”Here is a list of some amazing and fun jobs for kids! Yes, your tween or 10 year old can get a job, learn work ethic and independence and budgeting at an early age.”></p><p>Of course there are those traditional ways for kids to earn money like mowing the neighbor’s lawn or having a paper route.</p>
<p>But what are some ways that kids can make money online?</p>
<p>To let you know, there are many ways your kid can make money right at home!</p>
<p>As an online entrepreneur myself, I am all about letting my kids explore non-traditional working options.</p>
<p>But before we dive into how to make money as a kid, what are the potential legal parameters that parents should consider before kids start earning money?</p>
<h2 class=”clear-before”>Working Kids and the Legalities</h2>
<p><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-medium_large wp-image-17550 aligncenter” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/kid-jobs-legalities-768×480.jpg” alt width=”768″ height=”480″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/kid-jobs-legalities-768×480.jpg 768w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/kid-jobs-legalities-300×188.jpg 300w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/kid-jobs-legalities-1024×640.jpg 1024w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/kid-jobs-legalities-648×405.jpg 648w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/kid-jobs-legalities.jpg 1280w” sizes=”(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px”></p>
<p>While many parents can agree that encouraging kids to be responsible for working at an early age isn’t a bad idea, the government has other ideas.</p>
<p>Kids are limited in what they can do for work, how often they can work, which hours they can work and the types of work they can do.</p>
<p>Of course, these parameters have been put in place to protect children from danger and exploitation. But, as a parent, you should at least be aware of these laws so you don’t get in trouble.</p>
<p>At the ages of 16 and 17, kids can work unlimited hours at non-hazardous jobs.</p>
<p>At ages 14 and 15, they are able to work at non-hazardous and non-manufacturing jobs for limited hours outside of normal school hours and under specific conditions.</p>
<p>If your child is under the age of 14, their options are pretty limited. They are not able to be legally employed in <a href=”https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/fact-sheets/43-child-labor-non-agriculture”>“non-agricultural occupations covered by the FLSA.”</a> They can, however, work simple jobs such as delivering papers, babysitting, acting, and chore like jobs outside of a family business.</p>
<p>So be cautious of your child taking on any “job.”</p>
<h2>Can Kids Work?</h2>
<p>The short answer is yes.</p>
<p>In order for a child to be considered “employed,” <a href=”https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/fact-sheets/13-flsa-employment-relationship”>there needs to be an employer/employee relationship</a>. Freelancers, or contractors, are not considered employees. This, by default, means that there really isn’t any restrictions to kids freelancing services online as the normal child labor laws do not apply.</p>
<p>Just be sure that a responsible adult is handling their self-employment taxes.</p>
<h2>How to Make Money as a Kid</h2>
<p><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-medium_large wp-image-17552 aligncenter” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/dog-walking-kid-job-768×480.jpg” alt width=”768″ height=”480″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/dog-walking-kid-job-768×480.jpg 768w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/dog-walking-kid-job-300×188.jpg 300w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/dog-walking-kid-job-1024×640.jpg 1024w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/dog-walking-kid-job-648×405.jpg 648w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/dog-walking-kid-job.jpg 1280w” sizes=”(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px”></p>
<p>There’s no real magic trick or special formula when it comes to teaching kids how to make money with a job. As with most things in life, it’s all about hard work and dedication.</p>
<p>To get started, make sure your kid has these steps in place:</p>
<ul><li>Set goals for what you want to earn each week or month</li>
<li>Find a job that best fits your strengths (and helps you out too) – list of jobs for kids is coming!</li>
<li>Make sure your schedule is reasonable and you’re also able to maintain your grades – if you have hockey practice or gymnastics, having a job may not be the right time in your life!</li>
<li>Parents – encourage them! Working hard is a skill that takes practice, so be there for your kid as they learn how to manage money and work</li>
</ul><p>In order to make money from a job, kids need more than just time and a good attitude. They also need to learn some important skills that may not come naturally at first:</p>
<ul><li>Money management</li>
<li>Organization</li>
<li>Working with others / Teamwork</li>
</ul><p>So, before we get into the list of jobs for kids, what is the best first job for kids?</p>
<p>If you’re looking for an effective way to help your kid get started with a job, why not try something that’s tried and tested?</p>
<p>Hire your kid!</p>
<p>Whatever you do for work is likely to have some flexibility in the day-to-day.</p>
<p>Even if it doesn’t seem flexible on paper, most people are willing to bend the rules just enough so they can keep good employees around. Chances are, you can use your kid’s willingness to work a job around school and their parents’ schedules as a bargaining chip!</p>
<p>Realize, this is more than chore money or setting up a list of things around the house that you pay weekly.</p>
<p>Instead, think of this as a one-time legit job like mowing the grass, walking and feeding the dog, babysitting your younger children, etc..</p>
<p>As long as kids want to make money for themselves – or even better, learn how the world works by getting paid – they’ll find ways. As adults in charge of helping them get started with making money, it’s important to remember that there are no shortcuts.</p>
<p>Kids who learn how make money through hard work and perseverance will be unstoppable when they get older!</p>
<p>So, what are the best jobs?</p>
<p>These will help you set options for kids of every age.</p>
<p>Here we will go over service based jobs that 10-year olds can do in-person.</p>

<h3>1. Landscaping Services</h3>
<p>Grab that shovel or rake and head out to the neighbors! Whether your kid works with neighbors, the elderly, or busy business professionals, there is a need for all kinds of simple landscaping services.</p>
<p>A quick lawn mowing, raking the leaves, pulling weeds, or shoveling the driveway can earn them some quick cash.</p>
<p>One of the great things about this job for kids is that they can easily get repeat customers if they do a good job.</p>
<h3>2. Dog Cleanup</h3>
<p>Let’s face it, nobody likes doing this job. But kids can charge top dollar for filling up a bucket with doggie droppings. This is a much needed service in the spring in areas where all the snow is melting.</p>
<h3>3. Cleaning services</h3>
<p>If you kids enjoy cleaning at home, then perhaps they could offer their services to clean other’s houses as well. Doing the dishes, folding laundry, sweeping and mopping, these are all simple chores that any 10 year old could do.</p>
<p><a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEHBi1NsyrU”>Here is an inspiring story about a teen with autism that started a business cleaning garbage cans for people.</a></p>
<h3>4. Dog Walking</h3>
<p>Do you have a lot of busy dog owners in your neighborhood? Often kids love to do things with pets, so why not make some money from it?</p>
<p>This is a fun job that they can do with a friend or sibling.</p>
<h3>5. Pet Sitting</h3>
<p>Right there with dog walking service is pet sitting. They can offer pet sitting services for friends and family that go out of town on vacation, or work second or third shift.</p>
<h3>6. Lemonade Stand or Bake Sale</h3>
<p>Yes, kids still do lemonade stands, and they still make money from them!</p>
<p>This surely is a classic way to dip your toes into entrepreneurship. This does work better in areas with higher traffic so that people can actually see the stand. They can also make and sell baked goods with their lemonade.</p>
<h3>7. Babysitting</h3>
<p>Babysitting classes aren’t generally offered until age 11 in many places. However, if you have a mature child that has cared for younger siblings, then they might be ready to start babysitting.</p>
<h3>8. Face Painting at Parties</h3>
<p>If your child has a knack for painting, then they could offer their face painting services at parties. While this might cost a bit to get started, it is a super fun way for kids to make some money while doing something they love.</p>
<p>Plus, there are tons of resources online to learn how to properly facepaint.</p>
<h3>9. Newspaper Deliverer</h3>
<p class=”p1″>The job is pretty simple, which makes it easy to do – but your child does have to wake up before school to deliver newspapers.</p>
<p>If your kid isn’t the best sleeper or takes a long time to fall asleep, this job isn’t the best for them. But, if your child has no problem waking up before everyone else, then consider delivering newspapers.</p>
<p>Having a bike also helps speed up the process too!</p>
<h3 class=”p1″>10. Video Game Tester</h3>
<p class=”p1″>What kid hasn’t played video games? To be a video game tester, your child just plays the game and notes any glitches or problems with the game.</p>
<p>You can easily search for video game testing jobs or at home game tester online to find the right job for your kid!</p>
<h3>11. Photographer</h3>
<p>If your kid has a good camera and loves to take pictures, they can start being photographers for people in their community. That means taking photos of events or special occasions like weddings, family reunions, birthday parties, etc. They can even offer pet photography services!</p>
<p>This can be a fun creative job for your kid.</p>
<h3>12. Gardner</h3>
<p>Gardening is relaxing but usually time consuming as well which makes it perfect for somebody looking for part-time jobs during the summer break from school.</p>
<p>Kids could also help maintain yards before people move in new homes or after they move out (check with the owners first).</p>
<p>From planting seasonal plants to de-weeding and fertilizing plants, there is no shortage of gardening jobs.</p>
<h3>13. Basketball Coach</h3>
<p>Is there somebody in your community that is willing to pay kids money for coaching them?</p>
<p>If you’re super passionate about playing basketball then starting a business doing it year round could be something worth looking into!</p>
<p>You can also reach out on social media or online classifieds like Craigslist if you don’t already have connections in the area.</p>
<h3>14. Pet Grooming</h3>
<p>Are you good at grooming pets? Maybe your kids are too!</p>
<p>If so, why not get started right away by helping local families take care of their animals while they’re gone?</p>
<p>Pet owners will pay people for this kind of thing because it has become more common in recent years.</p>
<p>That’s where your kid employees come in again; learn how to groom dogs, cats, horses or even smaller things like birds here ! It may sound hard but trust us when we say that it really isn’t and it’s a great way to get started earning money without too much work.</p>
<h2>How to Earn Money as a Kid Online</h2>
<p><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-medium_large wp-image-17553 aligncenter” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/youtube-channel-kid-job-768×480.jpg” alt width=”768″ height=”480″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/youtube-channel-kid-job-768×480.jpg 768w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/youtube-channel-kid-job-300×188.jpg 300w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/youtube-channel-kid-job-1024×640.jpg 1024w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/youtube-channel-kid-job-648×405.jpg 648w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/youtube-channel-kid-job.jpg 1280w” sizes=”(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px”></p>
<p>While your kid can have a job to make money, there are other amazing ways to help your kid make money with their creativity.</p>
<p>It’s crazy to think about all the ways that kids can make money online these days. From selling their artwork to managing social media accounts, the possibilities are truly endless.</p>
<h3>1. Start an Etsy shop</h3>
<p>While they might need some help with the tech aspect of setting up an Etsy shop, there are so many things that they can make and sell through their own store.</p>
<p>Get ready to start brainstorming…</p>
<p>Here are just a few different things that your kids could make and sell on Etsy:</p>
<p>One tip with listing things on Etsy, be sure to fill out the “about” section with your child. People love supporting kids’ businesses, so make sure you let them tell their story.</p>
<h3>2. Publish Books on Amazon</h3>
<p>Is your child always drawing or writing stories? Then maybe they are a budding author.</p>
<p>With Amazon, it’s so easy to publish a book, even your 10-year old can do it.</p>
<p>They can either write and illustrate their own book or get started with low content books.</p>
<p>If you aren’t familiar, low content books are things like journals and notebooks. You just design a cover and fill it with lined paper to write it. You and your child can easily do this with a free software like <a href=”https://bookbolt.io/”>Book Bolt</a>.</p>
<h3>3. Managing Social Media</h3>
<p>Depending on how much time your 10-year old spends online and on various social media channels, they might be really great at managing a social media account.</p>
<p>I know for many parents, their child is light years ahead of you in regards to social media. From using Tik Tok for fun to&nbsp; learning all the new features on social media, your child may be ready to sell their social media tactics for others!</p>
<h3>4. Start a YouTube Channel</h3>
<p>There are so many kids that have YouTube channels now.</p>
<p>Probably one of the most famous YouTube kids is Ryan, from Ryan’s world with over 30 million subscribers!</p>
<p>It all started when he was eight years old and his parents uploaded a video of him opening a giant Easter egg. The rest they say, is history.</p>
<p>While your kid might not be the next Ryan, having a YouTube channel is a fun and rewarding online job for a kid.</p>
<p>They can teach other kids things (dance, video game cheats, life hacks), make satisfying videos playing with slime or sand, create video game walkthroughs, put together Lego sets, or make funny prank videos.</p>
<p>Having a YouTube channel can also turn into a whole family affair, like the <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYSsTrCYRkAxgINU76yJsSw”>Tic Tac Toy Family</a>.</p>
<p>So parents, just be aware that having your kids do a YouTube channel might take some time and effort from you as well.</p>
<h2>The Worst Jobs for Kids</h2>

<p>While you might find some fun time with the list of jobs, some jobs for kids are not the greatest.</p>
<p>Whether they are dangerous, time-consuming, boring or just plan hard, make sure your kid researches their job and see if it’s a right fit.</p>
<p>So, to help you, here’s a list of worst jobs for kids!</p>
<h3>1. Trash Collector</h3>
<p>This is a terrible job if you don’t like getting dirty or having to deal with hazardous waste – however, somebody has got to do it! If your kid isn’t afraid of hard work and stinky smells, they might actually enjoy the job of collecting trash.</p>
<h3>2. Can/Bottle Collector</h3>
<p>This is another unpleasant job that can be learned and mastered –if your kid wants to get their hands dirty for money!</p>
<p>The worst part about this one is that it can be unsafe. While collecting cans and bottles in your neighborhood is safe for most 10-year olds, having to haul it to the Recycler on their own isn’t. And, if your child’s job requires you, then it really isn’t the best choice to teach them independence and work ethic, right?</p>
<p>But, if this is a family thing, then by all means start a recycling program in your neighborhood and have fun!</p>
<h3>3. Plumber</h3>
<p>This job isn’t necessarily an easy or clean job. Your kid will have to get their hands dirty if they want to work on the pipes under someone’s house. As well, a plumber has credentials and training, so a child doesn’t make the best fit for this type of job.</p>
<p>However, if your child is versed in using tools and has helped around the house fixing leaks, then this might be a job for your extended family and close friends at first!</p>
<h3>4. Janitor</h3>
<p>This is another job that can be really rewarding but isn’t always pleasant. As a janitor, your kid may spend most of their time cleaning up after other people – not exactly an easy way to make money for kids. However, if your kid is detail oriented and doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty, they might enjoy the job.</p>
<p>Plus, doesn’t Morgan from <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26gpMX1g2o4″>Pup Academy</a> make cleaning fun?</p>
<div><figure id=”attachment_17543″ aria-describedby=”caption-attachment-17543″ class=”wp-caption aligncenter”><img loading=”lazy” class=”wp-image-17543 size-medium_large” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/morgan-768×480.jpg” alt width=”768″ height=”480″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/morgan-768×480.jpg 768w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/morgan-300×188.jpg 300w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/morgan-1024×640.jpg 1024w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/morgan-648×405.jpg 648w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/morgan.jpg 1280w” sizes=”(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px”><figcaption id=”caption-attachment-17543″ class=”wp-caption-text”>Morgan in Pup Academy doing Janitor work with his grandparent</figcaption></figure></div>
<h3>5. Server</h3>
<p>The problem with this kind of job lies in its schedule (i.e., late nights) which may not be compatible with other jobs that your kid might have, like school and extra curricular activities.</p>
<p>However, if your child enjoys setting up parties or events in your home, you could send out flyers in your neighborhood on event planning with a kid’s perspective!</p>
<h2>Things to Consider Before Your Child gets a Job</h2>
<p>There are many benefits to a child getting a job or starting their own business.</p>
<p>Other than helping them to make some cash to buy some more fidgets, it can really help to set them up for adulthood.</p>
<ul><li>Kids often don’t understand how hard their parents work to provide for them. When they work to make their own money they will (hopefully) appreciate it more.</li>
<li>Working and earning money creates discipline in children through positive reinforcement. The harder they work, the more money they are going to get.</li>
<li>Having a job and starting your own business helps to increase effective communication skills.</li>
</ul><p>There are also other aspects to consider before your child starts working.</p>
<ul><li>Is your child responsible enough to do the necessary tasks?</li>
<li>Are they involved in other extracurricular activities? You don’t want to have to worry about your 10-year old experiencing burn out.</li>
<li>What capacity do you have to help your child in a new venture?</li>
</ul><p>Whatever your child chooses to do, it’s never too early to start teaching them a hard work ethic and the value of a dollar.</p>
<p>Encourage them to try something new but just be sure they aren’t feeling obligated to “have a job” and miss out on being a kid.</p>

12 Odd Jobs You Can Do for Easy Money https://twinsmommy.com/odd-jobs-you-can-do/
https://twinsmommy.com/?p=17513
<p>Hey mama! This Twins Mommy blog is to help you make money online! Oh Yea!</p>
<p>But, I know for many of us, making money in a new way is challenging and may look difficult because of lack of funds.</p>
<p><img loading=”eager” class=”pin aligncenter wp-image-17530 size-medium_large” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-jobs-pin-768×1152.jpg” alt width=”768″ height=”1152″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-jobs-pin-768×1152.jpg 768w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-jobs-pin-200×300.jpg 200w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-jobs-pin-683×1024.jpg 683w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-jobs-pin-270×405.jpg 270w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-jobs-pin.jpg 1000w” sizes=”(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px” data-pin-description=”Check out these odd jobs you can do. These are great for stay at home moms that want extra cash but don’t have a lot of time.”></p><p>With the <a href=”https://www.gobankingrates.com/money/economy/rising-cost-of-living-in-america/”>cost of living soaring in most parts of the world</a>, it’s not uncommon to find people struggling with their day-to-day expenses.<span id=”more-17513″></span></p>
<p>If you are one of these moms who needs to earn some extra cash but don’t want to leave your child alone at home, there are plenty of odd jobs out there that you can do to make some easy money.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Whether you’re looking for a side gig to do on the weekends to make money and connect with new people or you prefer to work odd jobs right from your phone, there’s no shortage of amazing options that you can check out.</p>
<p>But if you’re spending your free time working an odd job, you want to be sure that you are going to do something that pays well, not just a few cents here and there.</p>
<p>So here is our list of odd jobs that you can do for easy money.</p>
<h2 class=”clear-before”>Basic Requirements to Do Odd Jobs</h2>
<p>I know for me, when my twins were little I had many short breaks where I could do a simple odd job and get paid during my break time!</p>
<p>To help you out, some odd jobs require more than just a little bit of knowhow, while others are very simple tasks anyone can do.</p>
<p>A few things you should keep in mind when looking for odd jobs is whether or not it’s legal where you live, what kind of job opportunities there may be around your neighborhood (check online), and if it’s something you can feasibly do while still <a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/things-to-do-when-bored/”>taking care of your little one</a>.</p>
<p>You might also want to speak with friends or family members who have done this before so they can point out any pitfalls for you ahead of time.</p>
<p>For many of these odd jobs you can use a phone while others may need internet connection and access to a computer and still others require you to be outside the home.</p>

<h2><strong>Working Events</strong></h2>
<p><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-medium_large wp-image-17521 aligncenter” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-jobs-can-do-events-768×480.jpg” alt width=”768″ height=”480″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-jobs-can-do-events-768×480.jpg 768w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-jobs-can-do-events-300×188.jpg 300w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-jobs-can-do-events-1024×640.jpg 1024w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-jobs-can-do-events-648×405.jpg 648w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-jobs-can-do-events.jpg 1280w” sizes=”(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px”></p>
<p>Now that everything is opening up again, there has been a lot of events going on.</p>
<p>Many of these one-off types of events don’t have a full-time dedicated staff but rather hire staff just for that event.</p>
<p>Think about all the festivals, events, concerts, parades, sporting events, and conventions that are held in and around your area every season.</p>
<p>One way to find these odd jobs is to just look for local events in your area and reach out to the event managers to see if they are hiring staff.</p>
<p>You can also check out the Craigslist jobs under gig events.</p>
<p>These types of odd jobs are great if you are looking to make some extra money and also can provide some really cool and unique experiences. You could be a bartender for Summerfest, put up art installations for Burning Man, or handle ticket sales at the Sundance Film Festival.</p>
<p>The earnings for these types of jobs can vary drastically and will depend on the type of job, necessary skills, and where the job is located.</p>
<p><a href=”https://www.jobmonkeyjobs.com/”>You can check out some of the “coolest jobs on Earth” at Job Monkey.</a></p>
<h2><strong>Craigslist</strong></h2>
<p>Speaking of finding gigs on Craigslist, there are still plenty of legit odd job opportunities available on this platform.</p>
<p>If you are looking for part-time or one-off type of odd jobs then you are going to want to check under the “gigs” in your local area.</p>
<p>You might find things like a limo driver, helping people move, participating in studies for new technologies, or a camera operator for a sporting event.</p>
<p>Use caution when applying or contacting anyone from Craigslist.</p>
<p>As anyone can post on this platform, you need to use your best judgement as to whether something is legit and safe.</p>
<p>Here are a few quick safety tips when it comes to interacting with people online about potential odd jobs:</p>
<ul><li>Don’t EVER give anyone your personal information. This can include your home address, social security number, seed phrases for your cryptocurrency (if you have any), bank or credit card information or any other type of information that could potentially be used against you or to steal your identity.</li>
<li>If you are meeting someone in person, go to a public place and bring another trusted person with you. Also let someone else know where you are going and for what.</li>
<li>Don’t send anyone any money for a “gig” or anything else (unless of course you are actually buying something). Scammers are getting more and more creative with how they separate people from their hard-earned cash. If you do need to pay for something, use a PayPal account. This way if you get scammed, you have a better chance of getting your money back. Don’t send cryptocurrency, gift cards, or cash. If they ask for these things that is a red flag of a scam.</li>
</ul><h2><strong>Study Participant or Focus Group</strong></h2>
<p><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-medium_large wp-image-17522 aligncenter” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/focus-group-odd-job-768×480.jpg” alt width=”768″ height=”480″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/focus-group-odd-job-768×480.jpg 768w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/focus-group-odd-job-300×188.jpg 300w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/focus-group-odd-job-1024×640.jpg 1024w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/focus-group-odd-job-648×405.jpg 648w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/focus-group-odd-job.jpg 1280w” sizes=”(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px”></p>
<p>Companies need to study people and products for many different reasons. The great thing about participating in studies, clinical trials, or focus groups is that they are relatively easy and often pay very well. Like $175 for talking to someone for 90 minutes about how you watch television.</p>
<p>Not too bad…</p>
<p>So where can you find these easy and good paying odd jobs?</p>
<p>Again, Craigslist is a good place to start.</p>
<p>If you are looking to join some focus groups, check out <a href=”https://lb-live.focusgroups.org/”>FocusGroups.org.</a> They have paid out over $19million to their participants. This is similar to doing surveys. You need to register, then you have to qualify to be part of a study or group. Everything can be done from home which makes it a great option for stay-at-home moms.</p>
<p>If you are looking to participate in clinical trials, you can find opportunities at <a href=”https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/search/index”>ClinicalTrials.gov.</a> With clinical trials, sometimes you have to have a certain health condition (like diabetes) or you can be a healthy individual. Clinical trials don’t just involve taking experimental drugs either. There can also be studies for non-medical interventions for things like positive psychological journaling and how it affects stress and happiness.</p>
<h2><strong>Body for Hire</strong></h2>
<p>Now before your mind wondering into the gutter, keep reading…</p>
<p>Being a body for hire is getting paid to be present at certain events. If you have a desire to get into acting, this could be a great opportunity. This odd job that pays well might require you to be a stand-in bridesmaid, be in a crowd for a protest, a public relations stunt, a <a href=”https://www.jobmonkey.com/uniquejobs4/professional-mourner/”>mourning person at a funeral</a> (it’s a legit odd job, I swear!), or an extra in a movie or tv show.</p>
<p>There is even a company out of California that <a href=”https://crowdsondemand.com/talent”>hires out crowds of people for events.</a></p>
<p>It works best as a <a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/home-based-business-ideas/”>home business</a> because there is not much overhead involved in running one of these businesses, but it can also work if you have your own office at your disposal.</p>
<p>With these types of odd jobs, you can earn anywhere from $50 per hour to hundreds of dollars a da, depending on the gig.&nbsp;</p>
<h2><strong>TaskRabbit and Thumbtack</strong></h2>
<p>With these two platforms you can advertise yourself as a local professional and help people get their projects completed. You can help someone landscape their yard, paint their house, or cook meals for them. With both <a href=”https://www.thumbtack.com/”>Thumbtack</a> and <a href=”https://www.taskrabbit.com/”>TaskRabbit</a>, they are based on local availability. So, if you live in a smaller town, it might be more difficult to find gigs.</p>
<p>You can set your own hours and rates for tasks and get to keep 100% of your tips.</p>
<h2><strong>Gigwalker</strong></h2>
<p>With Gigwalker you can easily earn money by snapping photos, visiting certain stores, and doing your normal shopping. As with other apps, you get paid when you complete gigs. According to their website, you can earn anywhere from $3 to $100 for each task that you complete.</p>
<h2><strong>Odd Jobs You Can do on Phone Apps</strong></h2>
<p><img loading=”lazy” class=”size-medium_large wp-image-17524 aligncenter” src=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-job-phone-768×480.jpg” alt width=”768″ height=”480″ srcset=”https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-job-phone-768×480.jpg 768w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-job-phone-300×188.jpg 300w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-job-phone-1024×640.jpg 1024w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-job-phone-648×405.jpg 648w, https://twinsmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/odd-job-phone.jpg 1280w” sizes=”(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px”></p>
<p>We already talked about being able to participate in focus groups from your phone. However, there are a few other odd jobs that you can do right from your phone.</p>
<p>There are lots of odd job opportunities that require you to use your phone, such as food delivery and personal shopping. But what about jobs that you can do directly with your phone without having to leave the house or while you’re out and about?</p>
<p>These phone apps allow you to work on your own schedule – even while taking care of your family.</p>
<h3><strong>Fiverr</strong></h3>
<p>A good place to start is Fiverr. Fiverr is a platform that you can advertise different services that you offer, which many can be done directly from your phone. These can be tasks like managing social media, creating social media graphics, simple customer service, or creating video testimonials.</p>
<p>If you are looking for ways to make additional income using Fiverr, here are some services you can promote on their platform:</p>
<ul><li>Transcription: All you have to do is type up what someone says in a video or audio file, which means you can easily make some extra cash doing transcription while watching TV with your kids!</li>
<li><a href=”https://twinsmommy.com/freelance-writing-jobs/”>Freelance writing</a> and editing: There are many people looking for content that they will pay top dollar for if it’s high quality. If you know how to write well then this could be an excellent opportunity for making good money without leaving the house. It doesn’t require much time investment either, which is perfect for busy moms.</li>
<li>Virtual Assistance (VA) Services such as scheduling, email management, data entry etc.: These jobs are perfect for those with strong administrative skills as these types of gigs often require you to have excellent follow-through skills and the ability to work quickly without neglecting accuracy.</li>
</ul><h3><strong>Fancy Hands</strong></h3>
<p><a href=”https://www.fancyhands.com/jobs”>Fancy Hands</a> offers virtual assistants to anyone that needs a bit of extra help. Many of the tasks you can do directly from your phone. From scheduling appointments for people to conducting online research, there’s no shortage of available tasks. You can get paid between $3 to $7 per task. While that might not seem like a lot, but if you are doing multiple tasks per day, that is going to add up fast.</p>
<h3><strong>Amazon Mechanical Turk</strong></h3>
<p>Amazon Mechanical Turk, or <a href=”https://www.mturk.com/”>Mturk</a> uses its platform to access a remote workforce to complete tasks virtually. This could be conducting online research, taking surveys, moderating content, or validating data. These are essentially micro tasks that businesses outsource to virtual workers. While the pay averages around $6 an hour, you can increase your payments by completing several smaller tasks quickly.</p>
<h3><strong>Foap</strong></h3>
<p>With Foap, you can make extra cash with your high-quality smartphone camera. You can upload your photos and videos to Foap so that brands and agencies can use your work. While it’s estimated you get paid around $5 per photo, you can also enter contests with the potential to earn hundreds of dollars.</p>
<h3><strong>Decluttr</strong></h3>
<p>Got a bunch of old tech laying around that you have been holding off chucking in the trash? Check out <a href=”https://www.decluttr.com/”>Decluttr,</a> an easy-to-use app that will pay you for your old phones, gaming consoles, kindles, computers, and so on. You never have to worry about listings, auctions, or even paying for shipping costs.</p>
<h3><strong>OfferUp</strong></h3>
<p>It’s been said that on average people have about $1,300 worth of stuff laying around in their house that they can sell for cash. With <a href=”https://offerup.com/”>OfferUp</a>, you can list your stuff on the app to sell locally. You can sell electronics, clothing, baby items, and even vehicles.</p>
<p>Some other ways to sell items locally are through Facebook marketplace, Craigslist, and VarageSale. But just remember to use caution when meeting anyone in person.&nbsp;</p>
