Are you looking to start a home based business? Do you have little or no money to invest in it? Well maybe I have something that might interest you.
It’s a totally genuine way of making money, I have been making money from it for a couple of years now, and it costs next to nothing to set up and get running and do you want to know the best bit…?
…you don’t have to do very much in the way of work. It is, in fact, the closest thing I have ever found to a “passive” income.
Note –This post includes affiliate links which means if you make a purchase through any of these links I’ll earn a small commission at no extra cost to you. It helps me support the running of this website and continue to publish helpful content. I use whatever I promote for my own business, which is why I’m happily an affiliate! Thank you for your support!
“So what’s a passive income?” I hear you say
A passive income is where you do the work once then get repeat customers from that same work. In other words, once you do the work you can sit back and watch the money roll in.
Okay, that makes it sound too good to be true and to be honest, there is a little more to it than that, but not much. Here’s the thing…
I (and thousands of others) have found a way of earning money from other people’s efforts and hard work. I sell products, services and courses for other people and they pay me a commission for every sale I make.
“Okay, sounds great but what’s the catch?”
Here’s the absolute beauty of it, THERE IS NO CATCH!. it is a perfectly legitimate way of earning money and many of us have been doing it for years now. Have a look at my earnings from a hosting service below
As you can see, I have already been paid over £500 and I have £61.45 pending maturation which just means I am waiting for those sales to go past their 30 day refund option.
Do you want to know what I did to earn all that money?
I wrote a post on my blog, just like this one. I told people how excellent the service from this company was and how cheap the hosting was compared to other hosting services.
I then added a unique identifier link (affiliate link) so that the seller would know that it was me who sent the customer and so that I would get paid the commission. That’s it.
Here’s another example – and I did even less for this…
For this money all I did was stick a banner on my blogging website. Here it is look…
When a visitor to my site sees this banner and needs hosting or somewhere cheap to create a website, they click on this and sign up and BAM!!!! I get paid £30 – for doing pretty much nothing. How cool is that?
Do you use a product or service that you would be glad to recommend to others? Great, then you could get paid for it. See if they have an affiliate programme or offer referral discounts or rewards.
“But I don’t have a blog” I hear you groan…
Well, that’s the point of this post. I am going to show you how to create a blog from scratch so that you can turn it into a business and earn money by using affiliate marketing.
It is by far and away the cheapest business you could ever set up. You can even get a website for free (but I wouldn’t recommend that as you want to look professional). If you use the hosting service I recommend, not only will it cost you just £3 per month to host your blog but you will get your domain name for free too!
You can check them out here and compare prices with the likes of GoDaddy, Wix and 123.com. I guarantee they will be cheaper.
I have been helping people set up businesses for years, all kinds of business from florists to freelance copywriters, builders to bloggers and just about anything else you can think of, it’s what I do. I am a business coach and mentor and this is why I can say with some confidence…
- You will not find an easier, cheaper way to start home based business than a blogging business.
- You can run it from the comfort of your own home so there’s no office or premises to pay for.
- You can work on your own so there’s no staff to have to worry about or pay for.
- You can start your home based business for just £80 if you go with the hosting service I mentioned. (You can start it for free and update your package later if you have no money at all to spend).
