Making a Profit with an Online Business (Part 4)

So…let’s say you don’t want to sell any products, you don’t have a service to sell and you’re not interested in the drop ship model…how else can you make money online? I’ve got a very easy method that only takes a little time and no money. Sound good? Read on.

4. Become an affiliate. Now depending upon what business you’ve been in, you may or may not be familiar with being an affiliate. Quite simply, it’s all about earning a commission for referring customers to other online site, who then buy their products. I told you it was simple. What’s nice about this is that there’s no risk to you, and the partnering company, which may never even know who you are, benefits too. For example, on my Recommended Reading page, each book is directly linked to it’s Amazon page. If you follow the link and buy the book, or even stay on Amazon and buy something, I earn an affiliate commission. Granted it’s very small, but it something. In some businesses, commissions may be as high as 20+%, which can definitely add up. The idea here is that by adding links or banners to your websites, you simply drive traffic to other sites (businesses), who in turn reward you with a commission for each sale. You might be surprised at how many businesses do this. You just have to do a little research…and before you know it, you might start getting unexpected checks in the mail.
