As I write this on the 1st of November 2020, the UK has announced that the country is going into a 2nd lockdown.
I don’t think they will be alone in this move and that more countries and regions will follow suit in the coming days and weeks.
I have no doubt that the economic impact of this 2nd round of lockdowns will be devastating for economies across the globe.
In this article I am going to tell you of an opportunity that will teach you how to make money during the lockdown.
This is not some half baked scheme.
It is a viable, established, and very well known business model.
I will keep this short and to the point.
This holiday season is going to see an historic surge in online shopping
Black Friday is around the corner, with the Christmas shopping season mere weeks later.
With the lockdowns, and also various civil unrest problems, in many regions of the world, people are going to be very limited in their offline shopping choices.
Many stores will be locked down and others are already suffering lower foot traffic due to social distancing policies currently in place, let alone in a lockdown scenario.
This means people are going to have to shop online for everything from Christmas gifts, and even perhaps through to everyday items such as groceries, in some areas.
Although some stores are classed as essential and are allowed to remain open, many people are fearful of infection and also the current waves of crime and unrest that are gripping urban centers.
Again, this leads to a surge in people choosing to shop online.
Many well known companies pay commission for online sales
Huge Companies such as Amazon,, and even Walmart, have affiliate programs.
Pretty much any company you can think of, in most countries in the world, will have affiliate programs.
An affiliate program works in a very simple fashion.
We will use Amazon as an example.
A person joins the Amazon affiliate program.
This gives them the ability to create a link to ANY product on Amazon.
The person can then post this link on their social media, blog, app, etc.
The link has a special I.D. attached that tells Amazon whos link was clicked on and therefore who sent the person to Amazon.
When anyone clicks on the link, they are taken to the product on amazon.
If the person buys the product, or any other product on Amazon, within 24 hours, the person who posted the link earns a commission.
Think I’m joking?
As I said, pretty much any company you can think of stands a chance of having an affiliate program.
Here is a video from the Amazon YouTube Channel that explains more if you prefer video.
Sounds easy enough, but what’s the catch?
The only catch is that if you wish to be successful, then you need to know how to do affiliate marketing effectively.
Sure, you can go on social media, spam out links, and hope for the best.
But most affiliate programs require you to have a web presence such as a blog before even accepting you into the program.
In order to be successful you need to have the basics set in place.
Below I will link to the free training that’s available.
This training platform has 1.4 million members.
Some of them have been members for years and already make a full time living from affiliate marketing.
Others have joined recently and are getting their training and infrastructure in place ready for the holiday season.
The platform has been in business for 15 years and has step by step training from complete beginners right up to advanced techniques.
The basic training is free as part of the free membership offer.
If you decide you want advanced training and tools, there is a paid premium offer that can be purchased monthly or yearly.
This is optional and there is no fee, not a penny, for the free membership.
To sign up you simply need to create a user name and password.
No different to joining a social media platform or even posting a comment on a blog.
There are no credit card or personal details required.
The free membership is free.
No ifs, buts, maybes, or hidden catches.
They also have in-house affiliate programs that allow you to promote products that can earn you monthly income via residual payments.
Free members can promote and earn from these programs, but at a lower commission rate than premium members.
The training will teach you how to promote programs such as amazon effectively and make money in this coming holiday season and during the lockdown.
Many people will be sat at home all day during the lockdown with nothing to do except trawl social media and shop online for holiday gifts or Black Friday deals.
You have a simple choice.
Do you want to be sitting at home earning money from the millions of people shopping online this holiday season?
Or do you want to be one of the millions sat at home spending money as affiliates earn it?
It is up to you.
I know that’s blunt, but this is not a sales pitch, it is an opportunity.
What you do with it is your choice.
