Making money with your skills

There is this website called Esty that helps many skilled and crafty people display original products to thousands of visitors. It is like Ebay but it is focused on art and craft. It is free to join.
Make money tutoring
You can make part time or fulltime income tutoring online. You could design very enriching educational material to a select section of the population and charge a little fee for those who are interested in joining your program. You could chose to make your program free but use ads on your site to generate income.
Make money reccomending products
Another way to generate passive income is by writing product reviews. This kind of marketing is called affiliate marketing and is by far the most used method to generate income online.
When you write product reviews, you link them to a particular merchant. When people visit your site and click on the links given to you by the merchant, it takes them to the merchant’s website. While there, they could buy the said product or not. If they buy it, you get paid some money as commission.
A great place to start as an affiliate is with the amazon affiliate program. I like this program because they give you commission for anything the visitors buys while on their site. Let’s say you referred the baby trend trifold mini stroller, and this visitor clicked on this link and went to amazon and bought a sport shoe instead, you will be paid commission for the shoe. This is great right? Other affiliate programs will only pay you for the product you refer and nothing else.
Another great affiliate program is the wealthy affiliate program. This is one of the most generous affiliate programs period. Their product is in the make money niche. Basically, they are amongs many programs that teach people the step by step way to make money online. Only they are not just an educational program but have a domain purchase platform and a website building platform all in one place.
This is so important because, whether you want to sell your products or services online, or sell those of others, you need a website and a domain name.
