Get PAID To Test Websites

More and more companies these days are turning to the World Wide Web as a way of finding new customers. It allows them a larger reach, plus its more convenient for the consumer! But before they go live, many companies like to have their website tested! They want to know if it’s user friendly, are the links working, are words spelled correctly. And to do this, they need people to test it for them!

GET

This is a great option for all us busy Mom’s who can’t commit to working set hours each day! Most of these tests take about 20 minutes so you can fit a few in before the kids wake up, and a few in the evening when they go to bed!

Lasagna Roll Ups

One of the hardest part of cooking with 3 kids is finding things they will eat…other than mac and cheese!! Of course once I find a recipe they approve of, I have to share it so other parents can give it a try!! This is a favorite in my house for both the kids and adults! And if you want to get some veggies in, just puree them and add them to the sauce. The kids never even know! Enjoy!!!

**3 cups Sugar Free Pasta Sauce
**10oz. Frozen Spinach – THAW AND DRAIN
**2 1/2 cups Fat Free Cottage Cheese
**2 cups Part Skim Shredded Mozzarella
**3 egg white
**2 tsp. Garlic Powder

Spread 3/4 cup of sauce in the bottom of a baking dish. Lay the noodles out on a plate, and spread the cheese/spinach mixture on them. Roll them up and place them in the baking dish. Top with the remaining sauce. Bake COVERED at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and top with 1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella. Return to oven and bake for 5 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.

5 Tips For Raising Healthy Kids

As a personal trainer AND mom, teaching my kids to be healthy is very important to me! But it’s also hard!!! Kids are picky eaters at young ages so getting veggies in can be a trick! For me personally, I have 3 kids and they all like totally different things! My daughter loves broccoli, my oldest son likes fruit, and the baby hates both those. My key is starting them out young, but also sneaking those fruits in! We have a daily smoothie with kale and spinach and fruit. Even if they hate veggies, I still win by getting them in their body.

 

12049250_1048285918538207_3309233857384547622_nHere are some more tips for raising healthy kids:

 

1) Keep healthy snacks on hand. They won’t eat the junk food if it’s not in the house.

2) Teach them balance, one treat a day type of thing.

3) Give them fruits and veggies, some kids learn to love them!

4) Teach them about foods that are good for us and help us grow.

5) Sneak veggies in if your kids won’t eat them.

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!

5 Computer Based Jobs

5 Computer Based Jobs

I did some research, and found an alternative to customer service jobs! Search engine evaluators!!! Ok, know I’m sure many of you are wondering what that is as its not something you hear of often. The exact job description does vary from company to company, but most the time what it involves is people evaluate search engine to see if the terms used are bringing up the right results. For example, if I’m searching for homemade baby food recipes and instead I’m directed to information on the Paleo diet, then the search engine terms are not right for those companies. As an evaluator, you make sure the terms are matching up to the relevant sites.

 

These companies all require that you pass an exam to get hired and that you own a computer with good internet access. The amount of hours you need to work varies for each company, but it looks like average is between 10-20hrs.
