Top 5 Best Work From Home Jobs For Mums


Are you a stay-at-home mom or dad looking for jobs at home? Do you have young kids but still need to make money without worrying about them playing in the background or maybe you just don't want to sacrifice missing those precious moments with your kids. Whatever your reasons there is some great work at home jobs for moms and parents. In this article, I'll reveal some of the best stays at home jobs for parents just like you.


I can totally appreciate the stay-at-home parent lifestyle. You've basically made the decision that you want to stay at home to be with your children so that you don't miss their moments or it's just purely out of the function that you can't leave and go out to work. Either way, we have you covered. In this article, I'm going to relay five different stays at home jobs or opportunities that can help you make money while you're taking care of your little ones.


A couple of things to kind of keep in mind is I try to make sure that these jobs are international. Unfortunately, not everything will be available everywhere. 


Finally, because these all work at home jobs, you're going to have to apply to them, and with work at home jobs for the most part you're not going to start right away, you're gonna have to wait to hear back.



1. Social Media Moderator

I don't know about you, but a lot of times I've to deal with companies. I'll reach out to them if something's not working properly or something's wrong with my account so what I've learned is that if you reach out to people on social media like Twitter, they tend to respond really really quickly and the reason they do that is that they've hired dedicated people to kind of monitor what's happening on their social media feeds to see if people are complaining or saying things that are positive. These social media people are very very important because they can help a company lose or make money. 


One of the companies that we're talking about is liveworld.


They have a job where you have people that will monitor social media and act as a social media moderation person, customer service, live chat agent. So this company helps train these folks and hire them. Liveworld actually offers these positions.


They have one that's bilingual that's helpful for you folks who are able to speak multiple languages and that might be living in an international place, and they have just regular customer care. Both of these jobs are done remotely. It's part-time work from home position, and you are basically performing social customer service. Your primary responsibility will be to review and take action, track, or escalate social media user posts according to brand guidelines. Where you're looking at what people are saying and making sure that you're responding to the content, and initiating conversation responding to customer questions. Some of the things that you would just expect that a customer service rep would do.


you can see here how to apply they have an application for US residents versus non-us residents so you just click on the one that fits your needs here so this is helpful to my international brothers and sisters.


What are people saying in terms of salaries for a liveworld. You have a number of salaries. So we're talking about social media moderator. According to Glassdoor, you could make about on average $11 an hour and the total salary could be about $22,000 per year.





The reviews aren't really all that positive. Some people like it. Some people don't. They're basically saying that you don't get paid as much as you should consider the work. So that's something just to keep in mind. What I've noticed is that when people complain about salaries and pay, it all depends on what your needs are, and your experiences. Some people come into the idea that working from home you're gonna get paid the same amount of money that you get paid offline. That's usually not the case you actually get paid less so just keep that in mind and take that with a grain of salt in terms of the pay.

2. Freelance Writing

Freelance writing is basically what it sounds like you're writing articles for websites. So as you can see below there are all these different companies here that are hiring folks to write for them, and you can see that they're available all over the place.


You can make some decent money doing that so this particular company is offering $100 to $300 per article and there are different topics that you can cover here.


That's something that you can do as well because there's always people looking for writers for their websites like this website that I'm visiting now, they're all driven by content so they need people to write for them and it's not always the owner that's actually writing the articles. They have people that they actually outsource the articles too. So this is a great way to make money from home if you are a decent writer.


Another thing to keep in mind is you don't necessarily need to have a writing degree per se or an English major degree. When it comes to writing online, they tend to be a little more open to having people that have the experience, and not necessarily like perfect writers so it's something that you can do even if you don't necessarily have like a perfect English background or a degree or anything like that.


The thing I don't like about writing for other people is they dictate how much money you make. Although this is pretty good, for the most part, they're telling you how much you can make then you got to deal with clients and if they don't like your writing and they're going back and forth so that's a little annoying. But you can still make decent money if you like writing.

3. Bookkeeping

There are people that need bookkeepers to manage their stuff. As a business owner I have a bookkeeper that does all my bookkeeping for my business, and she does it from home and she also has an office too, but this is a profession that can be done anywhere, and if you have experience being a bookkeeper this company here belay solutions offers bookkeeping jobs. Unfortunately, itis seems to be only in the United States so just keep that in mind, but this is the type of work that you'll be doing, day-to-day tasks, journal, data entry code. etc


Bookkeeping is another great work from home job for stay-at-home moms or parents that want to make money online


How much are they paying for being a bookkeeper? 


According to Glassdoor here they say that you can make up to $2,000 a month and in some cases, you can make anywhere from $9 an hour.

4. Broadcast Service Caption Editor

If you've ever watched TV you have the option or even watch a YouTube video you have the option of turning on closed caption CC C, and basically what that does is it transcribes what the person is saying so you're watching a video, and I know this has happened to me when I'm watching certain shows where the person has a really heavy accent I can't understand what they're saying, so I'll turn on the closed captioning and I can read what they're saying in my native language which happens to be English, but there are places where they need different languages so they need people to actually type this stuff up, and that's what closed caption is. There are companies that are willing to pay you for this and this is what Aberdeen broadcast services offer.


They are currently hiring and they have live real-time broadcast capture there so whereas some things are already pre-recorded, and then the person gets to type it in.


With live real-time broadcasting, this could be someone on the news channel that's reporting something live and you have to be able to type that up as the person is speaking so that's what live real-time broadcast captioner is. and below is the requirements that they're asking for


If you actually have experience doing this, this is a great way to make money online.


According to indeed.com how much you earn from this is about $16 per hour so it's a pretty decent salary that you can earn doing this assuming that you do have the experience.

5. Proofreading And Editing

Proofreaders basically make sure that you avoid grammar and spelling errors and punctuation errors. I know on my blog I have tons of them but it doesn't really make a difference because most people just care about the value that I'm providing. But for the websites, it made me very very important to have perfect grammar and English, and that's where you come in and you can be a proofreader and proofreadingpal actually hires people to do this.


They have two proofreader system where one proofreader will look at the document, then they have another proofreader to check it just to make sure everything is okay. And you can earn anywhere from $500 to $3,000 per month so that's pretty good.


For you to actually work for this company though you do need to meet certain qualifications, and the qualifications are listed there, you either have to have a graduate degree with a minimum of five years of professional proofreading and editing experience. Or you're currently enrolled as a graduate or postgraduate student in an accredited university and have a minimum GPA of 3.5. So they have really high standards in terms of working for this company which makes sense because you want someone that's actually very capable of making sure that everything's okay, so that's why they have these high standards and then they have other qualifications that you can check.


They're not playing. If you're gonna earn up to $3,000 a month they want to make sure that you're the right person so if you have the experience with writing, and proofreading then this is a great opportunity for someone that is a stay-at-home mom or dad or parent.


In terms of what people feel about this company, 57% of the people do recommend this company so for the most part people like it, but like every other company there are complaints that folks have, but for the most part, most people seem to recommend this company.
