Working from home is the dream right?
You get to wake up when you want to, work for as long as you want to and even make as much money as you want to.
If you’ve been online for a while now, then you’ve probably heard of the many “get rich ideas” that are promoted everywhere online.
With good reason.. who wouldn’t like a piece of such an amazing cash cow?
But is all of this legit?
Can you really start working from home and make as much (or even more if you’re smart) than you’d ever do working at a regular job?
Me personally, I have been making money online for 5 years so. I have the experience and I can tell you that yes, it is possible to work from home and make money.
Through my experiences though, I have tried many ways to do so and a lot of them failed me. That is until I found a method which does get some critique for being scammy (but as you will see below it is isn’t), and that is affiliate marketing.
How does affiliate marketing work?
There are many derivatives of how affiliate marketing can be done, and you can see the many ways of how it works here but the main idea behind it is that you get paid on a commission basis for the goods you sell.
What products can be sold with affiliate marketing?
Basically, any product under the sun either already has an affiliate program or it will have soon.
Also, something a few people know is that if a product (or products) you want to promote is available on Amazon, then it can be promoted and you can make money off it.
Yes, Amazon has its own affiliate network and anything that can be found on their site can be sold for a commission.
There are more types of affiliate marketing networks but Amazon comes to mind as it is one of the most popular, most widely used and most easy to join.
I suggest you check out the whole details of how the Amazon Associates program works if you’re interested in working from home as an affiliate marketer.
