Start affiliate marketing with Clickbank
Affiliate marketing involves promoting the products or services of some company and getting paid per sale or lead.
I believe it is the best and most profitable way to make money online in 2019 and beyond.
In affiliate marketing, publisher is the person who promotes the product/services and advertiser or merchant is the person whose product/service is being advertised.
Now there are two models of affiliate marketing,
1. The company(advertiser) hosts the affiliate program itself and allow publishers to join it on its website directly.
2. In second case, a third party is involved in the form of an affiliate network. This affiliate network hosts the affiliate program and connects advertisrs and publishers on one platform. This way each advertiser does not have to host their affiliate program themselves and publishers can promote the products/services of any advertiser through one single platform.
Second model is the most used model in affiliate marketing.
Clickbank is one of the best affiliate network out there that connects advertisers and publishers from a lot of niches like weight loss, online marketing, personal finance and personal development etc.
You can join Clickbank as a publisher and start promoting the products or services of your choice.
Clickbank pays pretty amazing commissions and you can withdraw your money through Direct deposit, wire or check.

Start a blog
Blogging is the most profitable online job you can do in 2019.
Bloggers are literally making thousands and some even hundreds of thousands of dollars every single month.
You can start a blog about anything you like provided people are really into that thing e.g fishing is a good topic to start a blog as a lot of people are into fishing and they regularly buy fishing related stuff like fishing rods from Amazon. I am saying this because you can actually make money promoting Amazon products on your blog through Amazon affiliate program.

Most of the international and local brands/companies have social media pages but some of them don’t have time to manage them and usually they don’t give them much importance.
Look around you and check if all the local businesses in your area have a strong social media or not?
If you find any company that is not utilizing social media for their business, that can be your first potential client.
What you can do is that you can mail them with a professional proposal and offer them your social media management services. But before mailing them, first research their industry thoroughly and check out if any of their competitor is using social media for business.
While mailing them, don’t start talking about your services straight away, rather first show how much money they are leaving on the table by not utilizing the power of social media and also give them some examples of their competitors who are doing well on social media.
This is the best way to start your social media management business, however you can also try Fiverr to get your first few clients.

CPA stands for Cost Per Action.
CPA marketing involves promoting a specific product, service or an offer (in most cases) and getting commission per lead. It’s actually a type of affiliate marketing that mostly involves promoting a free service or an offer.

How to start?
