Virtual Chat Jobs

Let me be honest. Working from home is hard!! For many people, it takes awhile to build a steady income which can be tough when you need money right away! The logical choice is a customer service job as they pay a set income for set hours, but if you are a busy Mom like me, set hours with kids at home does NOT mix!! So what do you do??? Well we all know I’m a big fan of direct sales, but that does take time. Another option while you build your business, chat based customer service jobs!

 

pppppppThese sound like the perfect job for us busy Mom as you chat with the customers while not having to worry about your kids being loud in the background! Some do require set hours, but not all. Here is a list of a few to check out and apply to!! Happy chatting 😉

Monday Musings 8/24

I am not going to lie, the past week has been ROUGH! Will and I started homeschooling which has been a lot tougher than we thought. He has to do 4-6hrs of school each day and since I have a 3 and 1 year old to also keep busy, our days have been hectic! I’m attempting to do his school work when the baby naps as that little goober gets into everything. But that means less breaks for Will as we have to cram it into two or three sessions. The hardest part for him has been phonics. He has math and science down and loves those. But when it comes to letters and their sounds….NOPE! So Mommy and Will have both been a bit frazzled haha!!11219059_10153158365974576_3551802852844356049_n

 

I’m hoping this week will be easier since I know what to expect and also that I need to try and make it a little more fun for him. Currently he hates school and I know its mostly because I’m not too good at making it fun. He is learning the stuff he enjoys quickly, he was showing off his Five Senses and how to use them for his Grandpa today! And which things are on the left, and which are on the right. Smart boy!!!

 

Balancing working at home, watching my kids, and homeschooling has been rough. Its temporary so I know I can manage but I’ve had to drop others things so I don’t go crazy. We also move into our new house in a month which will add to the crazy for a few days haha. But I like crazy! I seriously think I function better when life is crazy. I mean, who likes boring?!?!

 

Lets talk things I’m loving this week!!!!

reviveacademy-300x200One of my best friends started a social media academy called Revive and its AMAZING! She teaches you how to be successful in social media and life! She even helps you pick out business appropriate outfits!!! This is the lady who mentored me when I started working from home 3 years ago so I know for a fact she is good!!

11870788_10153835955786091_4794192947214219852_n#GoodEnough is a cause special to my heart. When I started in the fitness world, I knew NOTHING! I was promoting a shake with horrible ingredients, needed to lose a lot of weight, ate too few calories, and was just an all around mess LOL. But I found a fitness company that didn’t care I was a mess! They cared that I was trying and no matter where I was in my journey, that I was good enough!! That’s such an important lesson everyone needs to be reminded of, and now you can get it on a shirt!!! These are limited edition and can only be purchased through this group so don’t miss out!

Want to hear a few funny stories from my week??? I know you do 😉

My sweet little Adalyn locked all of us out of the house, so Super Mom here broke the screen on a window, broke the lock on the window, got it up, and go Adalyn through to open the door back up. Luckily no one had to go to the bathroom as it kinda took me awhile. Note to self, give a friend a spare key!!!!

Liam learned if he chases after his brother and sister growling, they will run screaming. He thinks it hilarious, and they do too!

 

In homeschooling, Will and I were talking about “Up” and “Down”. I asked him what was on top of his chair. He replied “My tushey”.

 

I asked Will what he saw when he looked down when he is outside. He replied “Pollen, lots of pollen.”

 

Learning about food, I asked Will what gives you energy. He replied “Coffee. That’s why you drink it all day.”

 

Hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed week!!!

Pinterest for Business

As Facebook has recently changed its rules on allowing people to advertise, more people are looking for other avenues. One great way to advertise your business is through Pinterest! People spend more time each day on Pinterest than Facebook, plus they have the intent to buy and are willing to spend more! Here are a few other fun facts about Pinterest:pinterest-for-business
 69% of people on Pinterest make purchases vs only 40% from those on Facebook.
 Pinterest is the place to buy, or find inspiration on things you want to buy.
 People spend DOUBLE the amount of money on products they find on Pinterest vs on Facebook
 Food and Drink is the most popular category on Pinterest, followed my Home décor, followed by art and design.
 Pinterest is one of the fastest growing social media sites
 Pinterest has users of all ages
 People spend MORE time on Pinterest than Facebook

So how do you utilize this to grow your business? It takes time, but more and more business, especially large brands, are coming to Pinterest! Start small by getting your boards organized, have good descriptions, and make sure your pins are linked back to your website. Here are some tips to make Pinterest successful for your business.

 *Convert your Pinterest to a BUSINESS account. This gives you analytical information such as the number of clicks, the number of repins, etc and with that feature you can see which pins are helping your business.
 *Fill out your ABOUT section and use details as to what you do and what your website is about
 *Make Your Boards Organized. Have board names that are easy for people to recognize and know what it is that category. Have a fun and engaging picture set for each board. Have lots of boards that cover wide topics.
 *Make sure your boards have detailed descriptions and use SEO keywords and relevant hashtags.
 *Have Group Boards. With these, other people can post to the same board which means you reach their friends and followers PLUS your own!
 *Have engaging and enticing pictures. Pinterest is very visual so make sure your pictures can catch someone’s eye
 *KEYWORDS! Have keywords that will help people find your post. When someone goes to google, and types in “work from home jobs for moms”, you want them to be able to find your post right away. To do so, you need to make sure to use keywords that describe exactly what your post is about or what you are promoting/selling/taking about. Take time and think about who you are trying to attract and your audience. Keywords are very important for getting new people to your site. One way to know which keywords are most popular is by typing in what your post is about in the Pinterest search bar. That will bring up the most searched words related to your pin.
 *Make sure your Pins are linked back to YOUR website and not someone else’s.
 *Add a Pinterest “Pin It” Button to your website so people can easily pin your posts/pictures/articles
 *Have boards devoted to your business
 *Make sure your pins are 80/20. 80% need to be non business related, and 20% business. That will keep followers from getting bored and help them to engage with you more.
 *Incorporate hashtags to describe your pin and business
 *Aim to have about 10-20 pins put up a day. Have ALL of them go to your website to boost traffic.
 *Follow other people interested in what you are selling, and often they will follow you back.
 *Quality pins are way more important than having a lot of pins.
 *Follow other boards, especially large boards that have a similar interest to the market you are trying to reach
 *Share your Pins to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. (make sure to shorten the url before posting to Twitter)

Remember it takes time to build a following on any social media account and to start getting sales from it. Be consistent each day and you will get there. One way to get started is set apart a time each day just for Pinterest. That way you won’t forget to do it!

Monday Musings 8/10

This past week was CRAZY! I ended up in the hospital due to some health issues but the good news is they may have figured out what has been causing me problems for over 8 months now!!!

download (1)Today starts homeschooling for Will and I so I’m sure I’ll have lots to share about that in the upcoming weeks!!! We are just doing it temporarily as our new home won’t be ready for another month and its over an hour away. Not gonna lie, I am totally nervous about this!!! I was told it would be about 3-6hrs of work for him and I each day which shall be interesting since I also have a 3 year old and 1 year old to watch after. And my work!!! But I can do it!!!

This past week was pretty boring, as I spent most my time finding low key activities for the kids as I wasn’t up to running all over the place. Our normal morning activity is feeding ducks at the park. Our park has food dispensers for the ducks (fish food is in it) and you put a quarter in and get some food as they don’t want the ducks being fed other stuff. Well I got smart and went and bought a GIANT bag of the food from the store vs spending a $1 each day on a tiny bit. That is fun for the kids and I can sit on the bench and watch. Well, we ran out of food so I raided my piggy bank and found quarters. We get to the park and they had taken down all the food dispensers and the No Feeding signs!!! Of course on the ONE day I’m out of food haha!!

Baby Liam got a haircut this week, that was so hard for me!!! I knew during my pregnancy he would be my last baby, but it still has been hard watching him hit these milestones. I’m such a sap and just want him to stay a baby for as long as I can!!

We discovered that fun of breaking into a house this weekend. Will locked the door to Liams room (luckily he wasn’t in it!) and the house we are renting is super old so the only way in was through the window!!!! That was fun!!!

We are 45 days out from moving in our new house!!! So very excited! Especially since we have had a broken toilet in our rental house for a month and our oven just broke!!!!! I am counting down the days!!!

Hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend, and I’ll have lots of fun to share about our homeschooling adventures soon!!
