With new credit crunch stories appearing everyday the prospect of making your website earn for you suddenly becomes ever more appealing. I recently came across Skimlinks – a Nesta invested online tool that makes affiliate marketing a seamless part of your website.
So here’s how it works in non-techno babble; if I was blogging about the Lion King and wanted to recommended it. Through the Skimlinks plugin tool on my blog, interested readers will be able to click the link which will take them through to a booking merchant subscribed to Skimlinks such as lastminute.com that are selling Lion King tickets. If the reader makes the purchase then you will receive a fee from the merchant company as the sale was made through your website. Simple.
Now I’ve not tried it myself yet but if you do, remember to drop me a comment on how it worked for you!!
