Affiliate marketing is when you advertise and sell someone else’s product and they pay you a commission on each sale. Typically this commission is from 50% to 75% so this is a good ways to make money even if you don’t have a website.
Make money using your writing & other skills
There are numerous sites where you can register as a provider, build your profile and show off your skills. Other people who are looking to outsource work will post jobs that you can bid on. You submit proposals, meet new clients online and if you deliver good work you’ll get paid for your efforts. The following is a list of the most common ones:
www.Freelancer.com (incorporates the old sites Getafreelancer & Scriptlance)
www.upwork.com/ (incorporates Odesk & Elance)
Fiverr.com – I have used Fiverr both as a buyer & a seller & earned over $1,000 in about 18 months a couple of years ago.
