Want to make £60 for doing next to nothing?

International Money Pile in Cash and Coins

Sounds a bit too good to be true, doesn’t it? But one of our affiliates did just that in less than 3 weeks last month.

OK, £20 a week isn’t going to set the world alight, but it’s better than nothing, I’m sure you’ll agree!

So what did he do to make this magnificent amount of money?


1) He signed up to our affiliate program, to sell our ebooks

2) He emailed his newsletter list, recommending our last book, the 30 Day Blogging Challenge

3) He updated his Facebook page, recommending our latest ebook, the 30 Day Facebook Challenge

4) He added details of our 299 Steps to Blogging Heaven to his email signature, and posted about it on his blog

5) He let everyone he knows know that 299 Steps to Website Heaven is available for just £3

That’s it! It probably took about 20 minutes all told, and he’ll continue getting affiliate payments every month while his links do all the work and sell for him.

Like I said, it’s not a life changing amount of money, but it’s better than nothing and might pay for a night out once a month – so what are you waiting for? Sign up as an affiliate now and get started!

How does affiliate marketing work?

I get asked this a lot, and I often find myself trying to explain it in an easy manner and failing. I don’t do a lot of affiliate marketing, and certainly wouldn’t class myself as an expert, so I usually send people to the fantastic Sugar Rae website, as that’s how she makes her living and she has loads of affiliate marketing articles, tips and help.

Today Rae has surpassed herself with this great infographic explaining the affiliate marketing process clearly and concisely – thanks for letting me share this Rae!

Bonus Tip – Affiliate Marketing

If you’re into affiliate marketing then you need to read Shawn Collins’ blog

I’ve found some great tips on this site for clients of mine, and have even used a few myself for non afifliate marketing!

Shawn’s “About Shawn” page says:

Shawn is a co-founder of the Affiliate Summit, the leading industry conference for affiliate marketing, which regularly sells out and features the biggest names in performance marketing.

His book, ‘Successful Affiliate Marketing for Merchants‘ is the best selling book in the space, and it is considered to be required reading by affiliate managers.

He publishes the annual AffStat Report, a research, analysis, and benchmarking report for the affiliate marketing industry. The data in the AffStat series is widely quoted by trade publications, including Internet Retailer and Jupitermedia properties.
