2016 Home Based Business Ideas For Moms

work from home

Who says women have to give up their entrepreneurial dreams after they become moms? Thanks to fast broadband and other technological inventions and advancements, it is now easier than ever for stay-at-home moms to start their own business or find homebased work to bring in some extra income.

Here are a few ideas for starters.


Many of today’s famous fashion and style bloggers are stay-at-home moms. They are able to write about their passion and make money off it at the same time. It’s a win-win! Affiliate marketing and paid advertisements are just two ways to generate income in this sort of business. Thanks to social media and other online marketing techniques like SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), it is easier to get traffic to websites.

Virtual Assistance

Many businesses are on the lookout for Virtual Assistants who can provide virtual services to the company. These may include administrative work, call handling, technical support, telemarketing, and other tasks a receptionist would perform. For stay-at-home moms who have good time management skills, are organised, and have an administrative background, this is a great business idea to begin with.


In freelancing, stay-at-home moms can benefit out of an area of expertise they are skilled at, like photography, writing, web design, accounting, marketing, and many more. They can either approach former employers who are looking for freelancers, or branch out online and subscribe to freelancing platforms where businesses collaborate with independent professionals (aka freelancers) remotely.


There are numerous homebased franchise opportunities to explore. Some of them include travel services, cleaning, direct selling, plumbing, tutoring and other service-oriented businesses.

Food business

Most moms love to cook. Whether it’s baking or catering, a homebased business can be made out of it. It’s a heavily-regulated industry, but food production from home can be a lucrative business if done right.

A great business starts with a great idea and the willingness to see it through. The key is to get educated on the regulations as well as necessary permits (if any) to build a strong foundation for success.
