Affiliate Marketing – Teach the Kids How to Earn Their Pocket Money Themselves

School holidays are here again and you are once again worried about how your family budget is going to cope with the extra demands of your bored kids. Do you give in to them and stop the constant nagging for money or is there another way?

It only seems like yesterday you bought your son a yearly pass to the local water park but he tells you that it opens tomorrow and his pass has expired. Last year you thought you made it quite clear that it was his responsibility to save his pocket money and renew the pass himself. But kids today seem to lack the ability to save for anything so you are not surprised that he now needs to make some money really fast to pay for it.

At least he knew better that to just ask you for the money to pay for it. He has been regularly cutting the neighbors grass and working an odd Saturday at the local plant nursery but you also know it can be expensive for kids today just to make ends meet as everything just seems so expensive.

What if you could find a way for your son to make some real money instead? Maybe you could use his weekly pocket money then to pay off one of those outstanding bills that seem to be mounting up faster than you can pay them.

Now that’s a thought. My guess is that you too could do with some extra income each week as well. So why not make it a team effort and both make some extra money online working from home? However do not expect your partner to be supportive as they like 90% of the population have been taught to study hard and get a good job. They will suggest you both look for part time jobs instead.

So watch out when you fall for one of those get rich quick overnight programs and your partner finds out about it. Believe me it will do nothing for your self confidence. But you will have to agree that they were right on one thing in that it was a real waste of money.

Your partner will probably tell you all about how their mother used to get caught up in multi-level marketing companies and was always going to get rich but it just never happened. They might even talk about how they used to hold parties for jewelry or plastic bowls and all they seem to get was more cheap jewelry or plastic bowls for their efforts. You have to agree that plastic bowls do not pay bills.

However you still decide to search online for “how to make money fast” and you come across various sites that talk about affiliate marketing. You soon realize that affiliate marketing is in fact selling other people’s products for them but think maybe your partner is right and it is just cheap jewelry and plastic bowls.

But have you thought about selling digital products like ebooks, software and video courses online for a commission? Best part is the merchant handles all the payments, product delivery and refunds and you get paid up to 75% commission for each sale. All you have to do is find people who want to buy these products and the merchant does the rest.

How can the merchant pay such high commissions? Digital products are cheap to produce and have no shipping costs so a high percentage of the selling price is pure profit.

So if you and your son need to make money really fast why not give affiliate marketing a try? All you need is a computer, an internet connection and a certain amount of know how. So all it will cost you to start is perhaps a course to show you exactly how to do it whereas everything else can be done for free. For more information
