IN a time of soaring costs, everyone is looking for a way to save money, or make a little extra.
One TikToker shared how you can quickly make some extra cash by making short video clips as a side hustle.
What is affiliate marketing?
In a nutshell, affiliate marketing is a performance-based marketing system.
A company compensates third-party publishers (affiliates or employees) to generate traffic and the commission fee incentivizes them to find ways to promote the company, per Investopedia.
His video received almost 12,000 views.
In it, Bartlett described how he helped one of his employees (or affiliates) start making more than $100 in profit, just by posting simple videos. She’d only been at her side hustle for a week.
Here’s how he described the process and said it was “guaranteed” income.
What you need to do to get started
- Go to ClickBank.com and create an account for free
- Go to the ‘Marketplace’ tab and find a product you want to promote and start earning commissions from
- Create a TikTok account and start putting out videos relevant to the product you are trying to promote
Once his client, Taylor, whose TikTok handle is Taylorshustle, got her first 1,000 followers she put the affiliate link in her bio.
Bartlett received dozens of comments on his post and the responses ran the gamut – some were impressed, others said it was something easier said than done.
One comment said: “Love this!”
While another said: “What’s the catch?”
A third, a skeptic, said: “How did she manage to get 1000 followers in 7 days?”
And another weighed in saying: “It would take me 100 years to make $100 with affiliate marketing. Never seen anything more complicated and confusing.”
Meanwhile, Taylor posted a TikTok of her own on side hustling.
In it she wrote: “Me texting every I know I’m quitting my 9-5 because just made 1k in a day with a side hustle I learned in less than a week.”
And she offered to help others learn to do what she’s doing by clicking on the link in her bio. That led back to a tutorial by Bartlett making it a win-win for the employer and the affiliate.
In another post she shared some side hustles you can do at night after your regular day job.
- Proofreading Services where you can make anywhere from $19-$46 per hour.
- Working Solutions is a company offering customer care where you can choose your own hours.
Here’s how one entrepreneur said you can make up to $10,000 a month with an Amazon side hustle.
Plus, how one woman made up to $55,000 a week with her fashion savvy hustle.
