The Parents’ Guide to E-Commerce

Parents_ecommerce_guide

Calling all stay-at-home parents! The choice to leave paid employment and become a stay-at-home parent is a difficult one. It can be incredibly draining to your finances without those extra hours of wages, even if you now total job satisfaction. If you are struggling to find work to fit around your (and your child’s) schedule, selling items online from home can be a great income boost.

Product

The first step to creating your new business enterprise is to choose your product or service. It will help to browse online shopping websites and get an idea for any gaps in the market – or alternatively, anything that is already popular but that you can add a twist to. You should also think about your range of skills. Parents with an aptitude for languages could look into freelance translation services; while the more creatively minded can create beautiful handmade items for sale. Handmade crafts, clothes, furniture, and art are all viable potential products – if you can name it, you can probably sell it.

Marketing

Once you have decided on your product, think about the hosting of your business and how you will market it. Anything hand-crafted can be sold on sites like Etsy and Folksy easily, and do most of the marketing for you. In other instances, you need to find your customers and target them appropriately: for example, if you are having a clear out of old clothes, take note of any fashion trends and market them as such. Make sure you know your customer, and if you are using sites such as Ebay or Amazon be sure to tag your products with the correct search terms so they will be found!

Delivery

Finally, consider your customers’ and your own needs when finishing the transaction and sending the items to them. It makes sense to have an express delivery option available to your customer, should they be shopping at the last minute Consider also that your shipping method is appropriate to the product: small trips to the post office are viable for small and inexpensive items like stationery and greeting cards. Heavier and more valuable items should be entrusted to a reliable shipping service – a huge advantage of which is that you don’t even need to leave the house to drop off items to sell, when they can be collected and delivered for you.

Skateboarding

Adrenaline is released in all types of exercise but the amount depends on the intensity and duration of the exercise. The higher your adrenaline levels the more likely you are to enjoy the exercise and perform better.

Unfortunately most high adrenaline sports require a lot of equipment, special training or travel. However, there are a few adrenaline fuelled activities you can do from home (or nearby) that will get your heart rate pumping.

Teen_Bedroom_Decor

Teen bedrooms can be challenging places to choose a good look for. Teens tend to use their bedrooms for way more of their activities than adults do, for example studying, hanging out with their friends, watching TV and surfing the internet all tend to be done in the same room where they sleep. This means the room needs to be a lot more flexible than an adult bedroom, but also needs to be stylish. Teens generally care about moving away from childish design elements and having something trendy and modern that makes them feel grown up and impresses their friends (rather than embarrassing them by demonstrating how much they used to love Hannah Montana a few years ago), so your teen may well want a new bedroom look more regularly than the practical need to decorates arises!

For example, you can head off on an outdoor adventure that includes camping and other fun outdoor activities. You can also visit one of the many peaceful vineyards that are pet-friendly. Or you can even find a waterfront retreat, whether it’s at a lake or near the ocean, where your dog can play in the waves alongside his human family. And, of course, there are plenty of big and beautiful cities to discover and tour with your baby and your dog.

With so many options, you can set up a getaway and a holiday excursion that you’ve never experienced before and that you’ll never forget.

Book a Dog-Friendly Hotel

Once you’ve narrowed down your choices to the best pet-friendly destinations, you then have to find the best dog friendly hotels in the area that are also within your budget and provide you with all of the amenities you require.

While some hotels are completely dog-friendly and allow you to book any room, there are also many others that have a limited number of rooms available for travellers with pets, so be sure to book as early as possible to get the best accommodation and rate.

Book an All-Inclusive Resort

One of the easiest ways to book a fabulous holiday is by setting up your stay at an all-inclusive family-friendly resort. This is because you’ll be able to get a comfortable room to stay in, and perhaps one that even has a large living area and kitchen to work in, which is perfect for travelling with toddlers.

But even if you’d rather have everything done for you, an all-inclusive resort will provide you with all of the foods and drinks your heart desires because it’s all included in the room rate. This means you’ll really be able to kick back and relax, which is important for a busy mom.

Plus, resorts also provide plenty of fun activities for kids and adults. And if you find an all-inclusive resort that is also pet-friendly, you’ll be able to enjoy activities with your dog while taking in the gorgeous views and enjoying delicious food.
