Amazon Associates

The Amazon Associates service isn’t really that well know, but you could make good money with very little effort. The way it works is that you are given a link to a product on Amazon, and you need to post it anywhere and everywhere that you can. If somebody clicks your link and then buys the product, you take a share of the profits. You even get a share if they buy something different from Amazon after clicking your link. Spreading the links is fairly easy using social media, or blogging. Starting your own blog is the best way to earn a lot of money, but if you don’t want to put the time in, guest post on other people’s blogs, saying that you will give them the article for free if you can use your links.
