I know that this blog is all about exposing the bullshit that goes on in the world but that’s no reason why I should’t promote the Internet’s good guys that do business on the net. For this post I am going to tell you about one of them. I only joined them the other day and I only did that because I could see the great money making potential. Oh yeah, and it was free as well 🙂
The site is called SkimLinks and as a member you have access to over 1800 merchants. I’m talking about small insignificant stores either. Nope, I’m talking about some of the biggest merchants on the web! Let me list just a few to give you get an idea of the quality of merchants they’re affiliated with.
As part of the SkimLinks Team you get to offer for sale products from any of their 1800+ merchants. Even better is there is great potential to make sales by sending people to their stores. Let me give you an example. Imagine that you’re walking down the street and bumping into someone in the and in the ensuing conversation you told them about the great deal you got on a digital camera at Sears. They were so happy with you they shook your hand thanking you for all your help and in doing so you imprinted a code on them. This code told the guys at Sears that you sent them and when they buy something you would get a commission for it. It doesn’t even matter if they bough a huge LCD TV of sound system instead of a camera, you would still get paid. This is Sears’ way of thanking you for sending them to their store.
This is exactly what will happen if you’re a SkimLinks Team member and someone clicks on a link on your blog or website. Take the 6 examples I left above. Each of those links are normal everyday links that link to the respective sites. As soon AS someone clicks on them a cookie is placed in their browser so that the store knows that you sent them there. If they make a purchase you get paid your commission and that is no bullshit! You can’t get better than that.
SkimLinks is definitely the way to go if you’re wanting to monetize your website or blog. Leave a comment if you have any questions and I will try my best to give you an answer.
