Yep! Affiliate marketing is actually one of the main ways bloggers make money. Including me! Once you create a link and put it in your content, you won’t have to worry about it for years while you make money in your sleep!

Decide what you want to write about first. Then, choose products, courses, and companies that fit your niche. Then, you can get your custom like and share it with your audience. 

Unfortunately, it can take years to earn a consistent income with this affiliate marketing job. So, if you want to become a blogger, make sure you have another source of income while you work on it.


I’ll admit, I LOVED watching vloggers when I was younger! It was so fun to live life through them. I even considered it while I was testing side hustles. But I felt like I didn’t have any privacy. So, set boundaries if you want to become a vlogger.

You can add links and sponsorships throughout your video and description for your viewers to buy. You’ll get a commission whenever they purchase, whether that’s the day you upload your video or five years down the road.

Vlogging does take a lot of video editing, SEO, and graphic design skills for YouTube. If you’re okay with learning these skills, you can live your life how you want while making money from your affiliate marketing job!

Social Media Influencer

Social media influencing is similar to vlogging, as you can live your life the way you want and just record it along the way. Choose the platform you love the most, whether that’s Instagram, TikTok, Pinterest, or even Facebook.

Use your affiliate links in your bio, posts, stories, and throughout your content. Then, when people look through your links and content, you can make money with every purchase!

As a social media manager, I recommend using Instagram or TikTok for your affiliate marketing jobs. The algorithm for those platforms favors showing products rather than Facebook or Pinterest. 


If vlogging is too much, but you don’t want to worry about all the extra content you have to produce for platforms like Instagram and Facebook, consider becoming a YouTuber.

You can create educational, lifestyle, or entertaining content (without vlogging) on your time. Then, add affiliate links throughout your content and descriptions to make money on YouTube.

Many course creators and bloggers also use YouTube as another platform to make money!

Email Marketer

Creating a newsletter is one of the best affiliate marketing jobs you can try. Send emails to your audience several times a week or month with your affiliate links. Cater your emails to subscribers who have specific wants and interests.

Using email marketing for this affiliate marketing method is ideal because you can create different lead magnets, drawing in various subscribers and giving your links a higher conversion rate.

A successful lead magnet of mine is a list of 113 side hustles organized by potential income and category. I have also created several ebooks as a lead magnet. These let me categorize and give my subscribers the content they need the most.


Creating a podcast with affiliate links lets you meet amazing people while promoting unique products for your listeners. You can also get sponsorship deals to make even more money with podcasting!

Decide what you want your podcast to be about, invite popular guests to be interviewed, and share it with your friends and family.

Course Creator

Making a course is another popular way to make some passive income. Create a detailed and information-filled course for your audience. Not only can you make money selling your system, but if you include affiliate links, you can make almost double with each sale.

I have taken several courses with affiliate links and loved them! Most of the time, I got a discount, and the course included an intro to the product I was buying.

Social Media Ad Manager

If you’re finding that you are struggling to make affiliate sales, don’t worry! You’re not alone. A great way to get consistent sales is through creating ads for social media.

Create an aesthetic design for the products, write an appealing caption, and submit it for review! You don’t need a big budget; simply $15/day for 3-4 days is enough to make sales, as long as you have a good design and a strategically written caption.

Conclusion – Affiliate Marketing Jobs

There are tons of different affiliate marketing jobs that you can try. There are so many creators who make their living through affiliate links. You will need to research, ask questions, and be prepared that it takes a bit to make money with affiliate marketing.
