How to Make Money Staying at Home – 3 Simple Steps to Making Money at Home
If you're interested in learning how to make money staying at home, you've found the right spot! I've been making money working from home for almost a year now, and the perks are incredible. The freedom to chose your own hours, work from where you want, and dictate your own salary beats having a traditional job by a long shot. And the amount of success you have is up to you – the sky is the limit!
These days, almost anyone can make money staying at home by means of what's called "affiliate marketing". Affiliate marketing is defined as:
"An internet-based marketing practice in which an affiliate (you) promotes the product of another company (the vendor) in exchange for a commission payment."
Affiliate marketing should not be confused with multi-level-marketing (MLM) or pyramid schemes, and you never have to directly sell any products at all.
It may sound complicated at first, but it's very easy to learn …
Step 1 – Sign up at an affiliate network (for free). Amazon.com is the most well known affiliate network today, but there are hundreds, if not thousands of affiliates networks to chose from, offering you the opportunity to choose anything from electronics, clothing, to digital products to market online.
Step 2 – Pick a product to promote. Simply browse through the affiliate network offerings. For example, lets say you love iPods. If you wanted to promote iPods, you would get a special link from Amazon for iPods, and then move on to step 3.
Step 3 – Promote that product on your own free blog or website (about how cool iPods are) and you make money every time somebody buys the product you're promoting. In this example, whenever someone buys an iPod from Amazon after visiting your website or blog, Amazon cuts you a commission cheque!
Once you learn how to do this (setting everything up is free and easy), you can potentially start earning money!
So there you have it, in very simple terms, how to make money staying at home via affiliate marketing. If you've never heard of affiliate marketing, do not be intimidated. It's a great way to get started making money online!
