Build A Shopping Site


Many people are making a nice supplementary or even full-time income by simply building a shopping short-cut directory.

You can either go broad or focus on a particular selling niche. For example, you could build any of the following:

• Cooking Shop
• Auto Shop
• Music Store
• Sports Store
• Computer Store
• Pet Store
• Travel Store
• Game Center
• Or An Entire Internet Shopping Mall

When you build your site, you will have to follow these steps in order:

  1. Build your web site first with simple links to any e-retailer that you like. Even though these links will not pay commissions, you must first build a functional site before you later swap out these non-paying links for paying affiliate links.
  2. Once your site is up and running, you should then join the four affiliate administrators: Commission-Junction, LinkShare, BeFree, and ClickXChange. Membership in all of these is free. (No affiliate program will accept you before you have a site up and running - that's why you have to do step #1 first) Once a member of these four affiliate administrators, apply to any and all of the complementary affiliate programs at each of these and experiment with which programs work best for your site.
  3. Then also join onResponse and WebSponsors. Membership is free. These companies offer many free offers and other free stuff and will pay you just like an affiliate program to promote these things. Nothing sells in your online store like free stuff!
  4. If your site looks nice, is neatly organized, and links to solid internet retailers that can close a sale, you could be on your way to some very easy money.

    Strong Recommendation: If you build a shopping links site, experiment primarily with text links. Having a sea of banner ads and buttons on your page looks amateurish.
