Bloat Your wallet with a Residual Income Program

Aug 17, 2007
With all the programs available to make money under someone else's tutelage, there is no reason to believe you cannot find a residual income program that can add to your financial resources.

Of all the residual income programs, probably the easiest and cheapest to become involved in are affiliate-marketing programs. You simply add a link to a company's website and if someone clicks on that link and makes a purchase, you receive a small percentage of the sale amount. If you already have a website, half the work is already done.

Most websites who use affiliate programs will supply text or graphical links to them that typically you can simply cut and paste into your webpage, at a place you want them to appear. Once that is done you can simply sit back and wait for the checks to roll in.

However, one site may not be enough to improve your stature in the financial world, and probably will not generate enough income to achieve the financial freedom you are looking for. However, there is usually no limit to the number of businesses with which you can become affiliated. In choosing affiliate programs, it is wise to select those that promise the best potential for sales.

The affiliate links on your site should also have some relevance to the page on your site on which they appear. For example, if your site mainly sells automotive parts and service, odds are you will not see too many referrals to a cosmetic site or food site. Choose carefully for reputable sites as well.

There are even a few companies that serve as intermediaries between retailers seeking affiliates and the affiliates. They will allow you to sign up for programs, obtain appropriate links to the retailer's sites and even track the sales for you. When your commissions reach a preset level they will even handle sending you your check.

This is one residual income program with which you have considerable control over which company you help to promote. With many of the free websites on the market today, in addition to the links you may add for affiliate programs, typically, they maintain control over certain advertising that will appear on your site. They may even offer opportunities for you to give away free sites that will bring income to them.

Whether it is simply a link to the provider of the free site, or to other advertisers, they usually tell you upfront that advertising is going to be part of your site. Some of that advertising may not be within the realm of your content and some may even be disagreeable to you, personally. Before you sign up to being a residual income program, investigate the offering to ensure it complies with the values established for you and your site.
