This is similar to influencer marketing, but has a higher earning potential. Influencer marketing pays you ONE TIME per post, whereas affiliate marketing pays you every time someone uses your personal link or promo code.

Use Your Skills!
Chances are, someone out there wants to learn how you do what you do. Whether it's singing, guitar, photography, or producing, all you have to do is put the word out that you are now teaching!
