Mom: You Can Make Money Just By Doing What You Are Already Doing

By: Nicole Dean

Are you hanging out on forums?

Sending emails to family and friends with jokes or the latest news about your family?

Do you tell friends and family about the great new products or services you find?

Do you have a personal blog?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you can make money by doing exactly what you are already doing - and it's totally legit.

You see, there are websites that will pay you to bring them sales. And, no, I'm not talking about Direct Sales or MLM. These are companies that need a sales force, but there's no recruiting involved. You get paid when you send someone to their website - if that person makes a purchase. So, what you do is sign up as an affiliate for that company (which means you promote their website) and, whenever someone makes a purchase through your special link, you get a percentage of that sale.

Confusing? Not really. Just think of Real Estate agents. They make a commission on the sale of each house they sell. It's the same thing with affiliates. You refer a customer and you get a percentage of that sale as a reward.

Once you find a few programs that you like, you'll go to their websites. From there, find the link that says "Affiliates" or "Referral program" and sign up. Once you do, they'll provide you with links that you can use in your emails and on forums.

Here's a quick disclaimer: Not all programs allow email or forum posting. So, read the rules and follow the guidelines and you'll be set.

No, you likely won't get rich as this is not a get-rich-quick scheme. However, affiliate marketing is a quick way to get started making some money online without high pressure sales. If you choose to learn more and make a full-time income - that's a whole 'nother article.
