WAHM.com started out as an online magazine for work-at-home moms and over the years has grown into a hub of resources for more work-at-home professionals than just moms. The site aggregates job postings from job sites around the web and advertises work at home opportunities. It is the perfect site for freelancers to share information in a number of professions and for individuals looking for new business opportunities.
WAHM.com lets users know that they try to screen jobs posted on their Work From Home Job Listings page but offers tips on how to spot a scam. It also directs users to their active forum. Paid advertisements are clearly marked.
While WAHM.com shares articles related to finding work, starting a business, marketing, finances, family and food, its greatest asset is its forum. The WAHM.com forum has an active member community. Many members share job postings found from around the web in the Telecommuting forum and other professional forums. Newcomer questions are answered by more experienced work-at-home professionals. The site has been around awhile (registered in 1996) and searching the archives for previous discussions brings forth a wealth of information on any topic. Longtime members are well versed in spotting a work-at-home scam or recommending the right type of job.
In addition to a telecommuting forum, other work from home professions have a presence at WAHM.com from affiliate marketing to writing. There are numerous sales rep forums for members to discuss doing business in their particular home party niche.
As an active member of WAHM.com, users are able to advertise their business, business opportunities, web chats, monthly specials and social media business links in a promotional group of forums. Active member requirements are reasonable, users must have an account 15 days old and they must have posted over 30 times. Other benefits as an active member include posting two lines of signature to advertise a business or more and adding a custom avatar.
WAHM.com sells advertising space as well and is a great place to advertise any work-at-home business opportunities or products and services that WAHMs would be interested in. Posting telecommuting job opportunities are free in the Telecommuting and other professional forums, provided that they are paid and do not require a startup fee.
If you are a work-at- home professional looking for work or support, joining WAHM.com gives you an outlet to find others in the similar day-to-day of working from home. Find answers, jobs, opportunities, recipes and more at WAHM.com.
