Affiliate marketing is one of the best and easiest ways to start making money online. This is because with affiliate marketing you don’t need any products.

All you need to do is promote products from many companies and then you get a commission for this.

In fact this is how started my online business.

Basically you find a company which is willing to give you a percentage for every sale that you give them.

Do not work it is super easy to find these companies as they are always looking for people. You can find these companies on what is called affiliate marketing networks which I have listed before:

  1. Amazon
  2. JVZOO
  3. Clickbank
  4. ShareAsale
  5. Comission junction.

of course there are more affiliate networks but remember I am showing you the ones which worked very well for me in my online business.

The start of cost for affiliate marketing is very little and it could be from $5-$100.

Even though it is an easy way to start making money online I would recommend getting proper training which will help you understand everything quickly so you start making you sale.

Although there are many programs which will help you get started I found that Wealthy Affiliate was the best since it was the cheapest (as you can get started for free) and yet more helpful.

This is the company which helped me get started making money online. Here are other options you can look into which I have tried before:

2. YouTube

Most people think that YouTube is hard to make an income because it seems to be very crowded.

Although this is true, however if you approach it in a unique way you can make a huge killing.

With YouTube, Just like in any business, you need a few techniques to focus on to be successful. You can even use the platform to be a personal trainer.

However, you can be anything with YouTube, heck you can even integrate it with you affiliate marketing business to direct traffic to you website.

Here are a few techniques you will want to focus on in order to make it on YouTube:

  • Be consistent

With YouTube for it to be successful you need to treat it like a business and upload consistently. I would say maybe at least once a week.

  • Have interesting titles

Another great one to make it grow is to have topics which spark the watchers interested.

For example a topic like “SECRETS OF BEING A TOP GOLFER” is way more intriguing then something like “LEARNING GOLF AS A BEGINNER”.

  • Have comments on you videos and give love for commentors.

In order for YouTube to like you need to have comments on you posts and then give good engagement and also love their comments.

Trade online

  2. I think affiliate marketing and other forms of online busienss are actually perfect for many seniors that have retired from the work force.

    These people often have incredible amounts of acquired knowledge in the the field or fields they’ve worked in. These days most seniors are also very proficient with using computers.

    I think one important thing for retirees to know is that you don’t have to have any special computer skills to succeed in online business.

    If you are a relatively proficient writer on a keyboard or comfrotable in front of camera, it’s very easy to get started. Even if you don’t have either of those skills, they are very easy to learn so don’t get discouraged.

    Thanks for the read!

    Still, this information may help many, many others looking for work online.

    I like it that you did not talk about surveys… oh my, I’ve tried those, and there is nothing good about them! I appreciate too that you state very plainly that work is required to make any money. It really doesn’t matter if it’s offline or online… hard work is necessary to succeed.

  4. I do agree that online ventures are the way to go in the today’s business of enterprise. The model has long changed from the traditional brick and mortar to the low cost, dynamic online world. I see that it however requires disciple and great commitment.

    1. Yes indeed Taiwo

      the principles of succeeding in business still exist even though we are now online such as commitment and drive and discipline.

  5. Thanks for sharing these ideas, Thabo! YouTube is a great way to make money as well as affiliate marketing. Combining those two is a great idea. It might take some time to get first followers and decent exposure, but it builds up over time and eventually, you can even make money via YouTube and affiliate marketing. Thanks again!

    1. Glad you liked the article. There are many ways to make money online these days and YouTube is by far the best as it requires consistency over time.

  6. You stoked my fires! My 10 year old son is on my case about helping him to start his own youtube channel. He want s to film himself as he is learning how to do some sick and crazy flips and combos. I’m already part of Wealthy Affiliate, and the Training Program they offer is what convinced me that it is a great investment! So, I have NO EXCUSE for any delays in my own success. For me to not see any results in my online business is only because the guy in the mirror dropped the ball! Eventually, I’ll figure out how to leverage youtube for myself too. In the meantime, as a responsible Dad, I’m afraid of turning my son loose in the Wild-West Electronic Wilderness known as the internet!

    Thank you for a GREAT article.

    1. Hey Travis

      Great feedback. remember we are living in a digital world so the more you let your son understand YouTube the better he can make his future. You can just act as a guide with the information you know.

  7. I have been retired for a few years, the income that you made when working is not always the same when you leave the workforce. Having a side gig that you don’t have to go to every day is a great idea.
    Today there are too many people telling everyone that all you have to do is purchase my ready-made program to make thousands of dollars with little to no work. This is not true.
    Your information should get some of those in the right direction. Do you think that the average person can learn and apply information to make a supplemental income online without spending additional money on a personal trainer?

    1. Hey John

      Yes there are no quick rich schemes and I have fell for those long time but I am glad I now have built and online business which took a long time to do.
      Yes anyone can make s good income on the side which could end up being full time only if they have the right information and work hard on that information.
