Free Money – From Amazon
The best sort of money is the sort you are given for free.
I’m not the most academic of people but a valuable lesson I learned early on in business is that many of the best opportunities are right there under our noses. The problem is that we are so busy looking ‘out there’ trying to find them that they go unnoticed.
I recently launched a new book on Amazon. Over the past few years I’ve built up an e-mail subscriber list from my IT sites totalling around 40,000 or more readers. I’m not vein enough to think they all read every message I send but you get the drift.
I was about to launch the book and it suddenly occurred to me. I’ve got an Amazon affiliate account (free to start) so why not put out the links to my book using my affiliate code. Amazon makes it easy of course and you can send out a shortened link saying something like amzn.to/123abc so it doesn’t even look like an affiliate link.
The funny thing is that when I looked at the purchases using my link, I received income from anything they bought when they visited Amazon.com. Stuff like headphones, Star Wars books and even some of my competitors books and products! I’m not sure how or why it works but it worked really well. To the tune of $693.59 in fact. I don’t care who you are, that sort of money will make a difference and even at something like $35,000 online income this month it made a difference to me.
Think about how you can create money for zero effort out of thin air and then let me know how you did it.

Extreme couponing seems like a viable way to get things for free. Links such as the one you describe may be the easiest way to get free money.
Are you suggesting there are other means to free money? Do tell!
So far, I’ve had a little success in Google AdSense, but not too much. Affiliate marketing sounds like the real thing, so I’ll certainly try it in the future. For now, it only remains to make a good fan base for my services.
Freelance job sites have similar offers. They reward successful affiliate with small amount of 10$ or 10 credits for job applications. But I guess it is very useful, because one of those applications could lead you to the major job of your career.
I have my own e-store affiliated to larger nationwide shop. It is always good to see free money on my account, without any action from my side. I will recommend this article to my younger colleagues.
Yes, this looks so good, but I would like to know how long did it take you to get that status and start earning from your affiliates?
I’ve found several more offers like this. I guess I could try and see how things are going? Do you want to try it too?
Can you write an article about other similar offers? It seems to me that it has more e-stores like Amazon. Thank you in advance!
I think the time frame for someone to start earning from their affiliates will really depend on how much time and effort you will put into it. You’re going to do a lot of marketing technique and method for you to become successful as an affiliate. It really depends on your dedication in pursuing the affiliate method.
Can you be more specific? How were you able to receive income from anything they bought when they visited Amazon.com?
