    Hi guys,

    I work as a designer for my 9-5, so I am thinking the easier way for me to make some passive money online is by providing people with a design service... so, I have just created a site where I am offering my services for 19$ per sale.

    My only problem now is that I don't know where to find buyers / clients / people interested, so I thought for the first months I could offer some type of affiliate program where I share the revenue. So, for every sale you bring me, I'd give you 50% - 9.5 dollars, now I know that some of you guys would appreciate 9.5 dollars a pop, so I thought I'd ask you guys what's the best way to set this up? How can I know if this sale came from you or not? + am I offering too much money? 9.5 dollars too much? It'd be great to hear what you guys think about this.

    P.S - admins, sorry if this is in the wrong section, i wasnt 100% sure.

    You could start by providing a Fiverr gig for $5 and when you deliver the gig, you upload a .txt file that contains your website URL + a "coupon code" so the customer can "save" some money off their first time purchase.

    I'm not sure if people would have the need to purchase my service multiple times, I assume most most people would only need my service once...

    Plus, I'm offering 9.5 per lead, sure there will be people interested in that, I just don't know where to find them? Would I be able to submit a clickbank product?

    There are plenty of affiliate solutions out there, Clickbank might not work for you as they focus on digital products, but they are out there. Just go through the services and check whether or not you can use them. Start from Shareasale or something and work your way from there.

    Hi guys,
    thanks for replying however shareasale seems a bit too expensive for me (650$) to register...

    I'll see if I can find some alternatives to this, but if there are some members of the forum out there that have done something similar and know of an affiliate site appropriate for this let me know pleasE!
