How would you feel if you wake up in morning and check an old freelancer account of yours and find out that you have made $75 out of nowhere? I am sure you will be ecstatic just like I am at the moment because my Freelancer Affiliate account is showing me the result I never expected.
If you have been following me for a while you would know that I have shifted my focus from freelancing to Affiliate Marketing. I have been making my full time income through Affiliate Marketing for a few months now. But this is not an affiliate method I used before, never even tried.
I am sure you have heard of Freelancer.com and have used it as a freelancer or an outsourcer. I always loved Elance when I was a full time freelancer and logged into my Freelancer.com account every now and then but it never worked out as good for me as Elance did. I randomly signed into my Freelancer.com account and checked out their affiliate program. I found it interesting as they are paying $1 for every signup you refer. This is a very good offer actually and this is exactly how I made $75 in a single day.
I simply sent an email to all of my contacts and some of them signed up and I instantly got paid for my referrals. The people either signed up or completed some projects and I got my commission. I would look into detail and will share it here but emailing your friends is the first step you need to take.
How Does Freelancer.com Affiliate Program Work
They have their own designed banners that you can put on your blog with your affiliate link. I am talking about a more simplified and easier approach and you can try it in the next 5 minutes even if you are an absolute beginner and have never made any money on the Internet. All you have to do is signup for a Freelancer account.
Once you have signed up, just login to your account and click Invite Friends Tab
You can work as a freelancer and employer with a single account and the good news is that you do not have to pay a single penny to start earning money through this website. My account is still free on Freelancer.com and I have made thousands of dollars out of it already.
The next step is rather easier. All of us have friends in our Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail and MSN accounts. Just send emails to all of your friends. My email reached out to almost 2100 people in total and I am not yet talking about my own mailing list. Those were just IM contacts.
I am sure you have found it easy and I am also sure you can make money with Freelancer.com Affiliate Program even if you have never made a single dollar online. You will get $1 for every signup so imagine if 10 or 100 of your friends signup right away.
I got paid for my affiliate commissions because my account is almost 4 years old. I just went through the terms and conditions page on Freelancer.com and found out that it may take up to 3 months to see your affiliate commissions in your account. To earn $1 commission on referrals, you have to use the Invite Friends module on Freelancer.com as these commissions will not be paid for sharing your affiliate link.
