Your cautious spending nature is put on a hold and you buy many things that may or may not need.

Parents spend a lot on the products for their first baby. These spending levels go a bit down when the second or third baby joins the family.

Middle-income parents of an infant spend at least $233,160 till 18 years of age, which averages at $12,978 a year, definitely a market you can’t and shouldn’t ignore if you want to earn real money.

There is a whole list of products that we are talking about here. Bibs, diapers, feeders, rompers, oils, creams, car seats, hats, strollers, food, clothing, furniture, monitors, wraps and what not.

This is a cross cutting theme between fitness, health and wellness industry. The beauty about this segment is that it has recurring income.

Once you have passionate audience and they love your product, then you don’t need to be worried about ways to earn money online. Rather, your regular customers will keep placing monthly orders with you to give you recurring profits.

Moreover, natural supplements are not just the fitness industry niche. They have a kingpin role within the health and wellness industry also.

Natural supplements are used for vitamin D, depression, hair growth, anxiety, arthritis, energy and sleep also.

However, if you want to grab a small piece of this $37 Billion pie, then you need to ensure a few things. If you are going to develop a private label within the natural supplements industry, then quality is the utmost agenda that you just can’t compromise on.

If your product is going in or on your customers, then you need to make sure that it follows all possible health & safety standards and doesn’t put anyone’s life at risk. You must have stringent standards for selecting your suppliers.
