When I tell people I’ve found my calling with Frugal Mama, I sometimes have to stop and laugh. It’s easy to find a job you are passionate about, with a flexible schedule, and permission to work from home. The trick is getting paid to do it!
Sure, I have begun to earn a little money by writing for Parentables and by hosting the Frugal Mama Makeover Series, but the more I work, the more childcare I need. I’m OK with Luke being with a sitter in the mornings while Mark is at preschool, but I also work when they are napping and sometimes after they’ve gone to bed. So the idea is to work the same, and just get paid more. (Advertising is supposed to be “passive income,” even though there has been quite a bit of activity involved so far.)
When talking to companies about buying ad space, one thing I need to show is reader demographics. Would you take an extra minute to take this quick survey? It’s only seven multiple choice questions, and it’s completely anonymous (meaning I have no idea who you are when you submit the survey).
Your confidential answers about family size, employment status, and age will help me put together a media kit. In fact, I am happy to announce that I have brought on a super-competent college intern, Lauren Alexander, a junior at American University studying communications and theater. Lauren and I have been working together to get a marketing package together, and a questionnaire is an essential part.
Thank you for participating. I swear it will just take a few seconds!
