You can promote a variety of high-quality products and services with this business model. Your only job is to promote products and services created by other companies. When someone buys it from you, the company or product owner will pay you a commission.

Two of the most well-known places to find products to sell as an affiliate are Clickbank and Amazon.

Amazon is the world’s largest online retailer, selling both digital and physical products. Their primary way to make money is through affiliate marketing. They get other people, known as Amazon Affiliates, to sell their products for them.

It’s 100% free to sign up and become an affiliate with Amazon and you can sell anything on their website. They start by giving you a 4% commission rate, which slowly increases as you sell more products.

As you probably know, Amazon sells a wide variety of products in many different categories. How do you choose what to sell as an affiliate? As an Amazon affiliate, you can use their search feature to select the type of products that you’d like to promote. For example, you could choose to promote products in the dog training or electronics niche.

Type that niche term into the Amazon search engine. On the left hand side of the search, click on the ‘4 stars and up’ filter. Amazon’s highest rating score is 5. If a product has a score of 4 or higher, then you can rest assured that the customers who bought the products and left those reviews are very happy and satisfied. These are exactly the types of products you should promote.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve:
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

      Hello, thanks for commenting! I’m constantly working on updating and enhancing this site so I appreciate the feedback! That’s great that you’re interested in starting your own business and becoming your own boss. There are many sources that you can use to promote your site, but like you said, some of the most common paid sources including AdSense and Facebook Ads can be pretty expensive, especially if you’re on a tight budget or if you’re new to using them.

      What I recommend is to focus on free methods such as creating Youtube videos around the topic of your website, build up a following on social media sites such as Twitter. Instagram, Google Plus, etc. and promote your website to your followers. Even though these free methods can take some time before you start to see results, the time that you put into growing your social media accounts and promoting your website will be well worth it. You can even post ads on Classified websites such as Craigslist. I’ve had great results using Craigslist and some people are actively looking for ways to make money on Craigslist so it’s one of my top choices for sure.

      I checked out your website and it looks very nice and professional. I saw that you already have a lot of comments and interaction on your posts which is a great sign! I also like that you post pictures of where you’ve traveled. It definitely makes your website more personable. I really think that your website looks fantastic the way it is since it is filled with a lot of good content. I just created an opt-in form and you’ll find it below each of my main articles. I think adding links to each others’ websites is a great idea. Yes, doing this will help to increase our rank on Google and we can learn from each other. Thanks again for commenting!
