Chapter 1: Identify Your Passions and Interests
If you are a beginner looking to make money online without investing a lot of money or building an audience, there is a lazy but effective method that can work for you. The first step is to identify your passions and interests.
When you are passionate about something, it is much easier to put in the time and effort required to build a business around it. You will also be much more likely to stick with it when things inevitably get tough.
So take some time to think about what you are truly passionate about. What are the things that really excite you and drive you to take action? This could be anything from cooking to sports to personal finance.
Once you have identified your passions and interests, it is time to find best-selling books related to those topics. Amazon is a great place to start. Look for books that are currently selling well and have a high number of positive reviews.
To take things a step further, you can listen to these books on Audible. Audible is Amazon’s platform for listening to audiobooks. By listening to these books, you will gain a deeper understanding of your chosen topic and be better equipped to promote related products as an affiliate.
In the next chapter, we’ll go over how to become an affiliate with Audible and start promoting those books to earn money online.
Chapter 2: Find Best-Selling Books on Amazon and Audible
When it comes to making money online as a beginner, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel. Instead, you can tap into existing successful trends and products to earn a commission. One of the easiest methods to start with is promoting best-selling books on Amazon and Audible.
But how do you find these books? First, start with your passions and interests. Think about the topics that excite you and that you could talk about or research for hours on end. Once you have a list of topics, search for them on Google and Amazon. Look for books with high ratings and large numbers of reviews.
Once you’ve found the top titles, head over to Audible and search for them there. Audible is a platform that allows listeners to download and listen to audiobooks. It’s owned by Amazon, and as such, Audible’s selection is largely made up of Amazon’s best-selling books.
But before you start promoting books on Audible, you need to become an affiliate with them. Audible has an affiliate program that pays you a commission for every person you refer who signs up for a free trial and listens to two audiobooks. The commission is $5 per referral.
To become an affiliate with Audible, visit their website and sign up for their program. Once you’re approved, you’ll be given access to unique affiliate links that you can use to promote the books on your social media accounts.
Speaking of social media, this is where you’ll be able to promote the books and start making money. Find social media accounts related to your interests and passions. You could search for hashtags related to your topics or even join Facebook groups discussing them. Once you’ve found these accounts, reach out to the owners and offer to promote the books to their audience. In return, you’ll receive a commission for every person who signs up for Audible through your affiliate links.
By doing this, you can make money on autopilot. Once you’ve found a social media account willing to promote the books, you don’t need to do any further selling. Just sit back and collect your commission.
You can even reinvest your profits to build up more social media accounts, find more audiences, and make more money. It’s a simple, yet effective method to make money online as a beginner.
In conclusion, finding best-selling books on Amazon and Audible and promoting them through your social media accounts is a lazy but effective method to make money online. By leveraging existing successful products and affiliate programs, you can earn a commission without investing thousands of dollars or building an audience from scratch.
Chapter 3: Become an Affiliate with Audible
If you’re new to making money online, becoming an affiliate with Audible is one of the easiest ways to start. Audible is an audiobook platform owned by Amazon, the biggest online retailer in the world. As an Audible affiliate, you promote their audiobooks and earn a commission for every person who signs up for a free trial using your affiliate link.
The first step to becoming an Audible affiliate is to sign up for their Affiliate Program through the Amazon Associates website. Once you’re approved, you’ll get a unique affiliate link that you can use to promote audiobooks from Audible.
The commission rate for Audible affiliates is $5 for every person who signs up for a free trial of Audible and listens to two audiobooks. That might not sound like a lot, but it can quickly add up if you promote the right books to the right audience.
To find the best books to promote, go back to the list of best-selling books you created in Chapter 2. Look for audiobook versions of those books on Audible and start promoting them to your audience.
One way to promote your affiliate links is to create a social media account related to your topic of interest. For example, if your passion is fitness, you could create an Instagram account with workout tips and motivational quotes. Once you have a following, start promoting the audiobooks on Audible that relate to your fitness niche.
You can also find other social media accounts related to your topic and reach out to them to share your affiliate links with their followers. Some social media accounts might charge a fee to promote your links, but others might be willing to do it for free in exchange for a commission on any sales.
Another way to promote your affiliate links is to create a blog or a YouTube channel related to your niche. You can create reviews of the audiobooks you’re promoting and include your affiliate links in the description or the blog post.
Remember to disclose that you’re using affiliate links in your promotions. It’s required by law in many countries, and it’s also good practice to be transparent with your audience.
In conclusion, becoming an affiliate with Audible is a lazy but effective way to make money online as a beginner. With a little bit of effort in promoting audiobooks related to your niche on social media, you can earn a steady stream of passive income. Don’t forget to reinvest your profits into building more social media accounts and promoting more audiobooks to make even more money online. In the next chapter, we’ll cover how to promote your affiliate links on social media.

1. Choose the Right Platform
Different social media platforms cater to different types of content and audiences. It’s essential to find and focus on the platforms that will deliver the best results for your affiliate promotions. For example, if you’re promoting audiobooks related to fitness, Instagram and Pinterest would be the ideal platforms to showcase high-quality images and infographics.

People on social media are inundated with content, so you need to create high-quality, engaging, and informative content. When promoting your affiliate links on social media platforms, make sure that the content you create adds value to your audience’s lives. The content should be authentic and genuinely informative.
3. Promote Your Affiliate Links Tactfully and Strategically

4. Use Hashtags and Keywords
Hashtags and keywords make your content discoverable on social media platforms. Use relevant keywords to optimize your social media posts for search engines and perform research to identify popular hashtags used by similar accounts.
5. Engage With Your Audience
Engagement is a fundamental part of social media. Engage with your audience by responding to comments and messages promptly. This helps to flatten the curve and build trust with your followers.
In conclusion, promoting your affiliate links on social media is a powerful way to make money online.
