Have you ever considered getting paid to talk about products your love via social media? Well, there are a couple sites that offer free programs to do just that. Shareasale.com and LinkShare are two of the most popular and my personal favorites.
It’s 100% free to sign up. Once you enroll, you can search thru hundreds of merchants to find brands and products you love and already support and use. You can also find specific products that you want to promote to your friends and followers.
For example, you could share a link to EverythingYoga.com’s Yoga Clearance items or for a specific product like on their website like the Manduka Black Pro 71 Inch Yoga Mat . Or you can just put up their banner somewhere on your page, like this one:
Some affiliates are wholesaler websites like EverythingYoga.com, but you’ll find the actual merchants as well. LinkShare works with Manduka directly. Which is a cool way to get their logo’s on your page and give you an edge of credibility.
And here’s one of the banner from their affiliate:
It’s all really simple. They provide you with hyperlinks, banner images, links to sales, coupons and discounts, and company images. You simply copy and paste those into your blog or website. When people click on the links or images and purchase something, you get paid.
One of my personal favorites, because it is run by my coach and good friend, Scott Armstrong, is geared towards helping people write their first book. I’m going thru it now and it’s really great to have someone to keep me focused and motivated. I can’t wait to have my book finished to use as a calling card. Being a published author is a great way to gain legitimacy in the eyes of potential employers and students.
The program is from Boulder Coaching Academy and is called College Author. Here’s the link to it: College Author
