Sell someone else’s products

   One way you can make some money online is selling something you did not create.    

            All you do is recommend a product via an email, or website, or on Twitter. v    If someone follows through and buys something, you get a commission.    Some commissions are small, say a few percent, but others can be 100 dollars per sale, or a few dollars per click.     To find these, explore the links on this site.

What to do

              First you have to sign up as an affiliate to that company, and go through a short process where you select the products you would like to sell.    Then you copy and paste a short “html code”, or link, small banner, into an email or website, or blog, or on Twitter.     If you know how to cut and paste, you can do this.          

             But, you have to do some research.   There are some sites you can go to ( sign up, it’s free )

            and others.   Look online to find them under “affiliate programs”.  Some are for name brand, well known merchandise, and others are for small niche markets for unusual items and D.I.P’s.    DIP  is a “Downloadable Information Product”

      You can apply to get commissions from sales that use your link or small banner ad.    What products do you like to use?   what about your friends?    You can find products covering the whole spectrum.

Most affiliate income tends to build steadily as you learn and adapt.       It’s not “overnight” money.

Now, how to get visitors to come to your site or blog?

    There are good answers to those questions, so you have to learn what to do.    Truth is, there are many, many ways to get traffic.   Some are free, some cost money.    Some take time, others can get fast results ( those are the ones that cost money ).     

Google, the Big Gorilla

    It will pay you to learn about Google.    Google wants you to make money and sell stuff, because if you do, all of their advertisers who pay Google money, will advertise more, and Google will get more and more businesses to advertise with them.   Make friends with Google.   Go to their site, click on the various links regarding setting up an account.    You could spend all day there and still not learn everything.    If you can go through all the information, you’ll be well along to making some Google Bucks.
