*Affiliate Marketing. There are probably hundreds of affiliate marketing programs you can join. Affiliate marketing is signing up for a website or a product and marketing their product. An affiliate simply earns commission by marketing these products. For example, Clickbank products is a rather popular affiliate program. Most Clickbank affiliates will purchase a domain, which is very inexpensive and pay for monthly hosting. Hosting you can find as little as $3.99 per month. You would create a webpage around the product and market. You can write content to rank in Google. However, if you decide to do affiliate marketing, you will always need unique content.

SEO aka "Search Engine Optimization." Now as far as affiliate programs go, there are thousands upon thousands. If you take a look at most web pages and you scroll to the bottom, you will see a link for "Affiliate Sign Up."
Selling Online with Amazon FBA or Selling on eBay
How to get started? It's actually rather easy. If you want to sell on Amazon or eBay you need to be an actual registered business. I state this because there are companies that will dropship. However, on Amazon FBA or Fulfillment by Amazon, you actually ship your products to their warehouses. We will cover that next in this article. In every state, you can go to your official .gov state website and find out where to apply for a business tax ID number. If there is not a link, most websites have a phone number that you can call and get further information. When filing for a State Tax ID number, there are usually some forms to fill out whether online or via download that you can mail in. Most states do not charge you to apply for a business license or tax ID. Once you have that established, you can apply for wholesale accounts with many good suppliers. You will also need to think of your niche. What is it that you want to sell. Check and do your research. The last thing is buying and supplying a product that is already oversaturated and everyone is selling. This will make it hard on profits. You could also buy directly from China and use your own labeling. These are just a few pointers to get you off your feet and running in the right direction.
*Selling with Amazon FBA
What is Amazon FBA? Fulfillment by Amazon. I am sure you are very familiar with one of the top marketplaces on the web, Amazon. Amazon FBA is how business can increase their sales. If you have access to wholesale products. You can simply purchase your products through your wholesaler. Now with Amazon FBA, you have to have your "own products", not dropshipping! There is nothing wrong with dropship companies. However, for example, if you decide you want to sell bulk boxes of food or candles, whatever you choose. You need to order your products, from either the manufacturer or wholesale supplier and send these items to the Fulfillment program at Amazon. These products will be scanned and when they sell Amazon will ship it via their Prime Membership and you will get paid.
Let's talk about why Amazon FBA is a win-win, most Amazon customers are Prime customers. Amazon offers Prime customers 2 FREE day shipping. When searching for a product on the Amazon website, the first items that come up in the search are businesses that use their FBA program. So, as an Amazon customer, you think to yourself, I will order this because I know it's coming from an Amazon warehouse and I will have it here without any hassles. That is a huge increase in your traffic and your sales. As a Prime customer myself I will be open and honest. I always use FBA sellers versus the third party seller. I feel I have made a safer transaction this way. Plus, I get my item shipped to my doorstep within that 2-day window.
*Selling on eBay
Selling on eBay is much different than selling on Amazon. eBay sellers do not have access to eBay warehouses. So let's cover something I briefly mentioned earlier, dropshipping. Drop shipping is cutting out the order and you pack and ship. Your dropship supplier will take care of the packaging and shipping straight to your customer. However, eBay has very strict policies for sellers. If you are a new seller on eBay and want to sell merchandise as an e-commerce business, investigate and know who your manufacturers and wholesalers are. If you use a lousy dropship service or a knockoff brand wholesaler, you will get penalized. So the same rule applies as with Amazon FBA, find quality wholesale leads. You want companies that request your Tax ID or a business certificate.
eBay selling does not only have to be done as a business, this is also a wonderful site to sell things you have around your house. This is another great way to earn some money online from home. Perhaps you have old records, cosmetics you have never opened or used, bags, shoes, clothing, mechanical supplies and the list goes on. These are items you can simply sell and ship. Amazon does not allow the sales of any kind of used clothing. eBay will allow sales of used clothing, obviously in very good and clean condition. For example, you have an old pair of Ugg's, never wear them. They are in like new condition; you can list these for a reasonable price and sell them on eBay.
