This article includes pretty much everything that’s going on today, what’s going to happen to you and your household. It’s essential that we know how to make money from home. There are families out there who are being sent home as a precaution to hold up the spreading of the virus, but those families are not getting paid. They’re worried about affording the rent. They’re worried about paying for the mortgage. At the same time, they’re also worried about feeding their family.
We have to be clear on the definition of an affiliation and why that is closely related to this. With an affiliation, you go ahead on a website and you recommend a service or a product and then in exchange for that recommendation, if somebody signs up for those services, then you will receive a percentage.
A great way to get started with affiliations it’s actually with the use of credit cards. As you know, a lot of people are being sent home. Everyone is doing their due diligence and keeping social distance.
Therefore, other companies have emerged even more. For example, Amazon or Alibaba, online companies, because now people are trying their very best to not get in contact with other people, which means that people are staying home and they’re actually ordering more stuff.
That means Amazon is experiencing a very high demand of household items, and to a certain degree, even groceries. When you have cash, you can place an order on Amazon, you’re going to have to use credit cards, which just simply means that the use of your credit card is going to start going up.
There is a way that you can actually make money besides just simply using credit cards and racking up points. You can also start referring the credit card to friends or family members because chances are perhaps some members of your family might have lost their jobs.
Some members of your family might need that extra cash. When you start doing referrals of credit cards, depending on the bank that you’re working with, they can give you maybe $50.
Let’s say, for example, you have a Chase card, and you’re using the Chase Freedom and you just recently found out that a cousin of you just lost her job and she is looking to leverage a credit card that can give her the flexibility of 0%.
That way, she can ride the tough times and have the ability to afford groceries for her family, but at the same time, not stressed out for interest rates, and also have the ability to make points.
Those are two of the great parts that Chase Freedom could have. Because you refer your cousin you’re getting an incentive from Chase, $50, and then, in this case, your cousin because she signed up using my referral link, she gets an extra signup bonus point.
You can make money from home with Amazon
You can create an account for Amazon affiliations. This is the way that’s going to work out: You go ahead and you create an affiliate account, and perhaps your family members create affiliate accounts.
What you’re going to do is that once that account is created and it’s set up, you are going to start exchanging links because you cannot create an account and then use your own link to buy household items or anything that’s necessary for your family.
If you have your neighbor and you guys are good friends, you’re both going to open up an Amazon affiliate account, and then you’re going to use each other’s link. Every time that person purchases household items or whatever item that they purchase utilizing your link, you can get somewhere between 2% to 3%, for starters all the way up to 10%, depending on the item that they’re purchasing online.
Another way that you can make money from Amazon is by utilizing their audible services. Every time somebody uses your link to sign up for the audible services, and they stay in the service, of course, you will get a commission of around $5. It’s one of the highest commissions that Amazon pays.
Make money with Home Depot
Home Depot has an affiliate program as well but it’s typically for businesses. If you already have an LLC set up, or if you already have a corporation set up, you can actually go on the Home Depot site and apply for their affiliate program. They can give you somewhere between 3% to 5%. You have to have a website set up in place because they are a business and they’re only doing affiliate programs with businesses.
How to make money from home to pay your mortgage: Fiverr & Upwork
One of the platforms that you can actually leverage is Fiverr or Upwork. If you know how to draw logos or you are an editor, you can advertise your skill and you can get side projects there and without having to leave your house.

Youtube: Another way for you to make money at home is through platforms like Instagram and YouTube. If you already met certain criteria from YouTube, they could allow you to monetize your channel.
Some of you create content for the sake of creating content because you enjoy it, some of you are leveraging YouTube as a way to market your service. Maybe you are into filming, maybe you are into music creation. Some of you already have met the minimum requirement of having at least 1,000 subscribers and a minimum number of viewers.
Instagram: Another way to do that is through Instagram. If you have a certain number of people who are already following you what you can do is to do the famously called shoutouts.
If you’re an artist, let’s say you’re a dancer and you’re trying to get more subscribers to your own channel, and you have already built up a platform that it’s for that same common interest which is dancing. You can give out a shoutout to those who are trying to gain more followers whether it’s in their YouTube channel whether it’s in their Instagram channel, and you can charge daily for that post.
Depending on the type of content that you’re trying to promote, some people charge $50 a day for a 24-hour post. Some people even charge $60 or $70 dollars a day for a 24-hour post. It all depends on the field that you’re in and it also depends on the number of followers that you have.
Fund&Grow: is a service that basically helps real estate investors to get access to unsecured credit, in this case, credit cards but they’re all commercial credit cards or business credit.

Assuming for whatever reason you do not qualify or you do not meet the criteria to get access to loans, Fund&Grow can get you up to $250,000 in business credit. That is working capital for you to keep your business going.
If you don’t have a business don’t worry because Fund&Grow also can help you set up that legal entity and get access to that unsecured funding as well so you can have enough to perhaps maybe even cover that mortgage payment or perhaps to bring enough capital into your own household to even feed your family. At the same time, you keep it separate from your personal profile so that way it’s not impacting your credit scores.
