Two of the various methods we describe for earning a living online in our upcoming Income Anywhere! ebook are to use existing tools for opening a web store, and taking advantage of affiliate advertising relationships.
We implement both of these strategies through our partnership with Blurb. By starting our own Blurb Bookstore we are able to offer professionally published copies of Tripawd Heroes – a full-color book available in three different sizes, including the inspirational tales of amazing three legged dogs.
Since these books are printed on demand, we also offer personalized copies for people featuring their own dog’s story with his or her picture on the cover for a nominal additional fee. We also created the popular 2012 Tripawds Weekly Planner books and have more projects in the works.
If you serve a niche market, Blurb may be the perfect way to sell professionally printed books about your subject matter.
How to sell custom books online and earn commissions.
We love Blurb not only because of their fantastic tools that allow us to easily create our own premium quality books, but also because we earn 15% of all Blurb sales generated from the affiliate links on our websites. If you have a website with readers who might love Blurb, we highly recommend you join the Blurb affiliate program.
The Blurb affiliate program is hosted on the ShareASale platform, another great marketplace for sourcing affiliate links of all sorts. It’s an excellent way to generate passive income, even if you’re not publishing your own books. Blurb offers various ways to easily self-publish high quality photo books in a number of formats. Commission levels start at 15% with 120-day cookies and a $90 average order size. Blurb affiliate managers also frequently offer incentives and bonuses for publishing blog-ready content they provide about ongoing promotions.
Blurb offers all new affiliates a coupon code to create a Blurb book of their own for free once they’ve joined the program. They also pay affiliates $10 just for inviting their friends to join the affiliate program. So the first thing you should do as a Blurb affiliate is to invite your friends to join, just like I’m doing here. Click here to join now!
