Here at MID, we not only like to share effective ways in which dads can begin earning more from home, but what it takes to see true results.
I know how time-consuming fatherhood itself can be, whether you work a full-time job while raising a family or if you’re a stay at home parent. There’s usually a lot going on in the home.
Setting time aside so that you can focus and get actual work done, makes all the difference when trying to get work done from home.
If your end goal is to make a consistent income from home (online specifcally), heed these ideas, take it seriously, and be prepared to put in actual work and to learn new things.
Each of these ideas can be done right from your computer and you don’t need any prior experience – we’ll show you where and how to get started, however.
Let’s get right into the best work from home ideas for dads.
Work From Home Ideas For Dads
We’ve decided to exclude any online ‘jobs’ for this post, you know, a place where you can get hired to work for somebody else right from your home computer, much like your traditional 9 to 5.
That’s because we’ve created a list of the best jobs for stay at home dads here. Feel free to check it out for more ideas.
This time around, we’re sharing effective and current ways in which you can begin working and earning from home independently.
After seeing an article recommending dads to start a business making gift baskets, I thought this was much needed.
Not that there’s anything wrong with making gift baskets, but I thought to myself how many people actually take action on this advice?
Whether if you decide to make gift baskets or follow one of the methods shared just below, taking action is key.
And for best results, I suggest taking on one new ‘project’ at a time. Trying many things at once could lead to lots of confusion, frustration, and failure.
Here’s what we’ve come up with for work from home ideas for dads…
Start A Niche Website
One way to work from home is by starting your own niche website.
Niche sites are unique in that they focus on a segment of a more popular market.
Take More Income Dad, for example. This is a niche website.
It was created to connect with stay at home or working dads looking to create more income from home. Though a lot of the material shared applies to moms and dads alike, our focus is dads.
The larger market would be the make money online market – but we’ve decided to narrow it down to something more specific rather than taking on an entire market.
Another example would be fishing.
Instead of focusing on every aspect and type of fishing with your website you could focus on reviewing and promoting the best fishing reels.
I think you get the point here…
You Know Your Audience
Working within a specific niche makes it much easier to focus on a specific audience, or niche.
Once you determine your niche, only then is it recommended that you create a website, from here you can learn internet marketing tactics to attract real people to your website and even how to monetize your niche website.
One way could be selling your own products.
Sell Your Own Products Online
There are many kinds of products for sale online and many ways to sell these products.
For example, you can sell physical products through Amazon, eBay, Shopify, or Etsy.
You could sell online information products, like eBooks, video courses, or a membership site.
An effective way of selling your own info products would be through your own niche website and by gathering email subscribers.
Once you build up a list of email subscribers, you could then sell to these subscribers again and again. Don’t just take my word for it, hear from Ramit of GrowthLab who specializes in helping people learn how to create and sell their own online products:

Become An Affiliate
I’ve become very well versed in the affiliate space and even make a full-time income from my site Extra Paycheck Online.
One of the main ways I monetize this site is by promoting different offers or services as an affiliate.
Your job as an affiliate is to promote other individuals or company’s products. You find a product or service you like, or often times have used yourself, and promote it to others while earning a commission for each sale.
This can become very lucrative and is another way to monetize your own website.
Not only is affiliate marketing a great way to make money online from home, I feel that it is a great introduction to online business, and a chance to earn a decent to a large amount of income. ($0 – $20k+/mo).
Instead of creating your own products, you can promote existing products (and thereare endless products and services to choose from as an affiliate) and make money over and over again.
If you’re not familiar with online freelancing, there are many virtual tasks that you can do and people will pay you for it.
Some of the jobs require special skills, like web or graphic design (things you can learn), other jobs require less experience like transcription work or copywriting, as explained in Danny Marguiles free freelancing course.
As an online freelancer, you can get hired as a voice actor, virtual assistant, animator/illustrator, writer, customer service, and so on.
Many freelancers use freelancing platforms, like Upwork, where clients can connect with them and agree on needed work.
If interested in working as a virtual talent, I suggest checking out the free course shared above.
Who Would Have Thought?
If you’ve never earned money online before, the thought of earning a regular income while sitting at your home computer may seem impossible.
But MANY are doing it and making a decent living from it.
In just about every idea shared above, all you need is an internet connection and a reliable PC to get started.
I’ve been doing the ‘online thing’ for 3 years now and when I got started, I had no special knowledge and had zero experience.
Yet, I was able to make it work and am confident you can too.
It’s a matter of taking it serious and a willingness to try and learn new things.
What will earning more mean for you and your family? Clear up debt? Regular vacations? Paying off auto loans? A new home?
If you’ve ever done any kind of research for making money online, chances are you came across some low-value products claiming how you can easily make $10,000’s per month at the click of a button.
Or something along the lines of this.
Anything we share or recommend on this website, we stand by, and guarantee a safe place to learn and earn more as a dad.
Seeing true results is a matter of taking action and completely up to you…
