One of the best things about working online is that you can reach so many more people on the internet than you could through any other medium. When you write an article, post to a blog, or comment in a social media forum you are reaching out to more than one billion internet users around the world. You can also monetize your efforts more efficiently for the same reason.
I promote about ten products and services along with my own. Half of these are digital products available at Clickbank. This site has thousands of digital products available for sale. You can sign up for a free account and begin promoting these products through articles and blogs. Clickbank will send you a check every two weeks for what you have sold through your affiliate link. I only promote products that are related to something I know about or have an interest in.
The other way I earn affiliate income is by promoting the products and services of people I know or have done business with. Some example of these are the two free article writing templates from Jeff Herring, Tom Antion’s 800 page Click book, and Kathleen Gage’s 200 page guide to internet marketing. You can learn how to put all of this together by using Kick Start Cart, which is a combination shopping cart and database management system. They offer a 30 day trial and I offer training twice a month on how to use the system.
My free teleseminar next Wednesday, April 9, will go into more detail on how you can start making money with affiliate sales, even before your eBook is written or you have any products of your own. Make sure to leave your name and emaill address in the box in the upper right-hand corner and I will send you the dial-in details for this call.
