Mom Money Millions  

Are you ready to get paid thousands of dollars every month…just for being a mom? This is your chance to join the thousands of regular moms who are doing this right now.  Some are making just a few thousand bucks a month. Others are making so much money, they have quit their jobs and now do this full time. Some of them are making over a million dollars a year!

So what exactly are we talking about? Mom blogging!  If you are a mom, then you are ideally poised to get paid thousands of dollars every month for running sponsored content and advertising.

So why moms? Why are mothers doing so well from the blogging explosion? The world’s biggest brand companies are paying tens of millions of dollars to regular moms because…

Moms are the ones who buy all their stuff!

Research shows that if companies want to sell their products, they had better have moms on their side. says:

​“In the U.S., there are 75 million mothers, all of whom influence 85 percent of their household purchases. That's about $2.1 trillion per year in spending.”

That’s right. moms are responsible are for making buying decisions worth trillions of dollars to these companies.

Moms are the ones who:

  • Do most of the shopping 
  • choose which household products to use
  • spend money on fashions and accessories
  • select holiday gifts and goodies 
  • make or influence the biggest household decisions

Retailers and brands need mothers like a plant needs water. Without moms, their checkout lanes would be empty, their warehouses would be stuffed with unsold goods, and their profits would vanish overnight. Their businesses would just shrivel up and die.

So make no mistake – if you are a mom, you are in demand. Big brands need you!

You Are a Valuable Asset

Big brand companies need to talk to moms…their future and their profits depend on it. And just ten years ago, reaching mothers was simple. Companies could spend their huge advertising budgets on TV commercials and reach millions of women.

But now that’s not so easy. People don’t watch so much TV these days. moms spend much more time online – watching YouTube videos, chatting on Facebook, finding cool stuff on Pinterest.

And that’s a huge problem for the big brands. TV advertising doesn’t work so well anymore. Somehow, they have to find a better way to reach moms. They have to talk to them while they are online. And that’s where you come in.

Because these big brands have discovered a new way to spend the millions of dollars in their advertising budget. Instead of running TV commercials, they are paying this money to mom bloggers…ordinary ladies who love to share. And these ladies are making fortunes by cashing in on the avalanche of big corporation cash.

As reported on Elite Daily, Emily Schuman is a regular mom who was able to turn a simple blog into a highly-successful full-time career, thanks to big cash payouts from advertisers:

Cool, huh? And you can live this lifestyle, too. Here’s how…

Get Paid to Influence

Women are very sociable, and love to swap views and opinions with our friends. This is why mom bloggers are in such demand. Consumer expert says:

​“Moms trust each other over anyone else when buying. Nearly half of mothers say that the most important overall factor when making a purchasing decision is reviews and ratings from other moms.”

Abbi Agency, a marketing consultancy for major brands, explains why their clients sponsor mom bloggers more and more:

​“Bloggers speak very well to different audience segments. They are trusted sources and they know more than we do on what a mom would look for…they have the authority to convert like no-one else.”

That’s why mom bloggers are so critical – they are very important influencers. Lots of other mothers read their blogs, tweets, pins and Facebook shares.


Yahoo Small Business confirms this:

​“Consumers place trust in mom bloggers and their loyal band of followers. There’s a huge opportunity for brands to utilize these women as advertisers and promoters of their products.

"Mom bloggers provide value to brands and consumers, and their value is only increasing. Moms mention brands an average of 73 times per week and brands recognize the value of mom bloggers and their huge online networks.”

Technorati says that blogs are one of the top five “most trustworthy” sources of information on the Internet. And according to Maria Bailey, CEO of BSM Media, and author of Marketing to Moms:

​"Blogs are a go-to source for moms; a product review written by a trusted blogger is frequently more persuasive than a comparable traditional media ad campaign.

"R​eaders get invested in the blogger’s story and feel like they know her; when she recommends a product or brand, they trust her."

​Get Your Share  

So it makes perfect sense that big brands want to shower so much money on mom bloggers. That’s the best way to reach millions of ladies and influence their spending. So the million-dollar budgets that used to be spent on TV ads are now being invested in advertising on mom blogs.

Moms trust each other over anyone else when buying. Nearly half of mothers say that the most important overall factor when making a purchasing decision is reviews and ratings from other moms.”

Click to Tweet

How would you like to get $500 just for sending a tweet? A thousand bucks for showing a simple ad? Or three thousand bucks for publishing a sponsored blog post. (And yes, those numbers are real…and I can prove it. See below).

Talk about laughing all the way to the bank! Do the math…you only need two or three clients paying you every month to rack up a serious income.

In case you still aren’t convinced that is real, here is a news clip from CNN which explains why ‘the mommy blogger network has become so important to big advertisers’…and how moms are cashing in to the tune of up to $10,000 a week:

There you go – independent proof and confirmation from CNN, the world’s most reliable news source! And CNN is not the only authoritative news publisher to rave about the potential of mom blogging.

The New York Times reports that Heather Armstrong's mom blog "brings in an estimated $30,000 to $50,000 a month or more — and that’s not even counting the revenue from her two books, healthy speaking fees and the contracts she signed to promote Verizon and appear on HGTV."

The Wall Street Journal underlines these numbers:

​"Ms. Armstrong's fan base is a powerful lure for advertisers.  [Her blog] draws about four million page views per month.

In a quick back-of-the-envelope guesstimate…the site could yield $40,000 a month in revenue from companies coveting her traffic, such as BMW and Verizon."

​Mom blogging even gets the Hollywood stamp of approval. Oscar-winning celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow are running mom blogs, and loving every minute!

The Daily Mail says Gwyneth speaks to [her blog] about 'what it means to be a woman in today's frenetic, over-paced world.'

Get Products for Free

These ladies are collecting more than just cash, too. Mom bloggers also get sent all kinds of awesome gifts for free! They are given these ‘gifted goods’ to review or recommend. And we are talking about the latest-model, brand-name gizmos – totally cool products the moms can keep forever, including:

  • home appliances and gadgets 
  • iPads and smartphones
  • fashion items and accessories
  • makeup and perfume 
  • home furnishings and décor items
  • tickets to awesome events

…and a whole lot of other stuff, too. Oh, and did I mention all-expenses-paid vacations in health spas, beach resorts and country clubs? If it’s something that moms like to buy, you can be sure that mom bloggers are getting the same thing absolutely free.

The Guardian, one of the world's most trusted newspapers, reports that many mom bloggers get swamped with free goodies.

​"They call it blogola – payola for bloggers – the term for free stuff that bloggers get to review on their site and even the cash that some accept for those reviews.”

​CNBC reports that blogger Suzanne Broughton started getting noticed by PR professionals after she started blogging, and then things went crazy. She says she gets up to 50 invitations a week to restaurant openings or spas or other events.

"I am a professional blogger," she says. "A year ago I couldn't get invited to anything, now I get invited to everything."

Just imagine opening up yet another FedEx package to find free ‘blogola’ gifts from Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Armani, Chanel or Louis Vuitton. Tough job, but somebody has to review this stuff, right? So why not you?

Free Toys and Games

Who needs Santa when toy and game companies send you kid’s stuff for free! NBC News reports:

“These days, mommy bloggers [have] become so influential in the $22 billion toy market that toy makers go to great lengths to get their seal of approval. It's a major shift for toy companies, which have always given out samples of new dolls, games and other playthings to drive sales.”

Five years ago, they handed out 98 percent of those products to TV stations, newspapers and magazines. But today, as much as 70 percent go to bloggers.”

Get a New Car...FREE!

And it’s not just handbags and designer dresses. Some bloggers are even being given free, brand-new, latest-model cars in exchange for product reviews. For example, Kristen Matthews, Director of Digital Marketing at GroupHigh says:

“Ford is doing a great job with this tactic as part of a campaign they’re running right now. They gave 100 bloggers and active social media users free Ford Fiesta cars before the car was released to the public.”

Well-known writer Dianne Jacob remembers a conversation with a fellow lady blogger:

"Ford offered her a free Mustang convertible for the weekend if she would just take a photo of it and put it in her blog. Marketing people have offered this blogger free restaurant meals, free hotel stays, and hundreds of dollars’ worth of free food and kitchen equipment."

Enjoy Expenses-Paid Trips

Public relations departments and PR consultancies often invite bloggers to join journalists to visit exotic destinations that they wish to promote.

One writer on the GoFreelance team bagged a luxury trip to Strasbourg in France, and it was awesome! For a whole week, a group of bloggers and writers were treated to a tour of this beautiful city at five-star level. They stayed in the most luxurious hotels, ate in the finest restaurants, and were taken on tours of the local castles and vineyards.

Everyone was treated like royalty for the whole seven days, and didn’t spend a cent of their own money. All they had to do in return was write a review of my trip and publish it on their blog.

Become a Brand Ambassador

Mom bloggers with a loyal audience are also ideally placed to pick up extra cash and goodies as brand ambassadors for the world’s biggest companies. Brands who want to connect with their audience know that bloggers have the influence needed to be superb ambassadors for their products.

K. Azama of says:

​​​​​For the past three years I’ve been working as a Brand Ambassador. I’ve represented some of my favorite brands such as Nike, Oculus, Samsung, General Mills, and Chevrolet. It still surprises me after all these years how much money we can make as Brand Ambassadors.

​On average, I personally net anywhere from $1500-$2,000 per week. The bare minimum you can expect to make is $15/hr but there are gigs that offer as much as $100/hr.”

​K. Azama


​Make Money from Anywhere

This is not just for American moms – you can do this is you are a mom (or a Mum, or a Mummy) anywhere in the world, as the BBC reports from London:

"They come in their thousands, and command dedicated followings who trust in their every word. They are the so-called mommy bloggers. For advertisers they are the holy grail…popular, trusted - and worth paying for.

"British blogger Linda Jones has been writing parenting blogs since 2005,” the BBC continues. “She now blogs [about] trips and holidays with children, and is often - along with her family - invited by holiday firms to stay at resorts and take part in activities.

​​​​​‘I have been invited to Florida, and I've been to the Bahamas as well."

​Linda Jones


​In Australia, the Herald Sun newspaper reports on the growth of this phenomenon:

"When it comes to mummy blogging it seems everyone is doing it. In the UK, the influence of the mummy bloggers is so powerful that prospective prime ministers line up to be interviewed for their biggest online forums. And in Australia, an ever-growing army of tech-savvy mums is not far behind.

“As the Aussie mum blogger community has bloomed, and only looks set to keep expanding, companies keen to boost conventional marketing with word-of-mouth are watching, too."

And the money is just as good, wherever you live in the world. Canadian blogger Ashley of, for example, finds that advertisers are happy to work with bloggers anywhere:

​​​​​"I have been really, really lucky to work with some fabulous brands and companies. Usually, at least 50 per cent of my blog income comes from advertising. Sometimes probably up to 70 per cent. So far I haven’t found any that won’t work with Canadians. This is a plus!"



So it doesn’t matter where you live. The Internet has made location irrelevant. Today, you can build a huge audience for your blog from almost anywhere on the planet. That’s all advertisers care about. If you can get online, you are good to go.

Yes, You Can Do This, Too!

Let’s add it all up. You can make a substantial income every month, and get given all kinds of goodies and freebies. And you can do all this from home, working easy, flexible hours.

But I know what you’re thinking…

“Hmmm…that’s fine for those mom blogger ladies, but what about me? I don’t know how to do this!”

Don’t panic…it’s much easier than you think. Today’s technology makes it really easy to start a blog and take the first steps towards making money. You only have to meet one requirement to qualify…


​It doesn’t matter when you are a young mommy with a newborn baby, a soccer mom with a growing family or a Grandma who is a true veteran of the mothering business. Advertisers need to reach moms of all ages. If there’s someone in the world who calls you mom (or Mum or Mama or Mummy), then you are in demand.

It’s As Simple as Anything!

Making thousands of dollars a month as a mom blogger is simple. All you have to do is:

  • 1
    Start a blog
  • 2
    Build your readership
  • 3
    Attract deals from sponsors  
  • 4
    Run campaigns and get paid

Oh, wait…there is one more very important step...

​...Cash the checks, go to the mall and shop ‘till you drop…woohoo!!!

And it really doesn’t matter if you don’t know the first thing about blogging. It’s so much easier than you might think.

Today’s technology makes everything simple. You can start a blog in just ten minutes (seriously!), and social networks like Pinterest and Facebook make building an audience a snap. And when you’ve done that part right, advertisers will be queuing up to send you thousand-dollar payments.

Really, this is the best way to make money ever, and here is the evidence to prove it…

Rock Solid Proof!  

But wait a minute...doesn’t all this sound too good to be true? You might think so, if we didn’t have hard evidence to back everything up. The numbers are real, and you can check them out for yourself.  

You see, many mom bloggers choose to publish income reports every month. They break down exactly how much they made, and where the money came from. Then they publish the figures on their blogs for the whole world to see.

Why do they do this? Some do it to encourage others, and to demonstrate what is possible. Some just love to share. And some want to incentivize themselves to do better every month. There are lots of reasons, but the upshot is the same – you get to analyze the actual income and profits of amazing moms with blogs that rock.

Now it’s Your Turn!

Are you finding it hard to make your budget stretch to the end of the month? Are you stuck in a dead-end job that takes you away from your home and family? Do you feel frustrated that you can’t give your kids the lifestyle they totally deserve?

A Real Opportunity

It’s no secret that millions of moms would love to work at home, spend more time with their families and make good money whilst working flexible hours. That’s such a universal mom need that a whole industry has grown up to feed it…unfortunately, it’s an industry full of scams.

But mom blogging is different…very different. You only have to look at the proof on this page to see that this is real and genuine. Actual moms are doing this, and they are doing very well.  

Forbes, the world’s most prestigious and respected business publication, says:

​“In between folding laundry and cleaning up after her children, a mom receives $5,000 to blog about an iPhone application for seven days.

"Another woman earns twice as much as her husband’s $35,000 annual salary by hosting several one-hour Twitter parties each week."

Yet another female blogger has received, over the past year, all-expense paid vacations to Hawaii, Aruba, and Florida, as well as four new cameras, a camcorder, computer, and so many DVDs, food and cleaning products that she lost count."

The Huffington Post confirms this encourages mothers everywhere to give mom blogging a try:

​"But the truth is, mom bloggers are a powerful force to be reckoned with that are breaking the stereotype and turning their blogs into profitable businesses.

​One thing is clear: it definitely is possible. And mom bloggers everywhere deserve to be taken seriously as the smart, savvy, and successful business women they are."

​Business Insider backs this up with the story of yet another successful mom blogger:

​"Josi Denise became a mommy blogger in 2013, building up [her] blog to reach tens of thousands of monthly readers, generating the mom of three thousands of dollars."

ABC News confirms that she is getting big payouts for every sponsored blog post:

​"Denise, of Evansville, Indiana...started out blogging to make extra money. She...made up to $1,500 per blog post."

​Of course, mom blogging isn’t an ‘overnight success’ scheme. You have to be prepared to put the work in to make it happen. But if you are serious about getting results, the money will follow.

A Well-Deserved Reward for moms

It’s not easy being a mom. There’s always too much to do, and even more to worry about. You’re on call 24-hours a day, an barely get any sleep. The job doesn’t come with a salary, and you’re committed to the role for the rest of our life.

So you deserve a break, right? And that’s exactly what mom blogging is. This is your reward for all your hard work and selflessness. You have the chance to get paid for a job you have been doing for free.
