11 Easy Ways To Earn Money Online Right Now

1. Teaching English Online

2. Affiliate marketing (Amazon Associates)

  1. Go to the Amazon Associate website. Next, click Sign Up.
  2. If you haven’t already, sign up for an Amazon account. Ideally, you’ll want to create another account just for Amazon Associates. But if you don’t mind, you can go ahead and use your existing Amazon account. Click sign in and you’ll be asked to give your name and your home address.
  3. Next, fill out your active website, blog, app, or Youtube channel. They must be active and full of content if you want to successfully sign up for the program.
  4. After, give your tax information such as your social security number. This is Amazon’s way of verifying your identity and making sure you get the proper tax forms when filing taxes.
  5. Once you’re done, Amazon will verify your information and let you know whether or not you qualify for the program. The verification should take up to a minute or two. Once you’re verified, you can start posting Amazon affiliate links anywhere you want. The best thing is that there’s almost no limit as to what or where you can post. Good luck and make that money!
