Between sites like Coursera and apps like SkillShare, it should be easy for you to sell your skills to make some extra cash. In order to start making money this way, you need to do a few things first. Obviously, the first thing you need to do is compile a list of the things you are good at. You could be good at painting landscapes, drawing faces, creating resumes, or making small crafts. Everyone is good at something, the hardest part is finding out not only what that is, but if it can be seen as profitable. After you have devised a list of your talents, do some online research and see what you come up with for each skill. Look for things like, what the top people are doing with their skill, how much are they selling it for, how are they adding value to their item, and how they are communicating with their loyal customers. Things like that you need to list out. Ask as many questions as you want, just make sure and find all of the answers. Remember, start small, don’t become frustrated and you’ll be able to go anywhere. By the way, if you do this one right, you could actually start your own business from finding and selling your skills.
You could also opt to use existing websites for making money. These include both active income and passive income methods. For example, you could sell some used items or invest in creating some digital designs that then can be sold on merchandise. Again, devote a sizable portion of your time to passive income so that you can slowly build up earnings that will arrive on autopilot without any extra added effort. 
The implementation of affiliate marketing on the internet relies heavily on various techniques built into the design of many web-pages and websites, and the use of calls to external domains to track user actions (click tracking, Ad Sense) and to serve up content (advertising) to the user. Most of this activity adds time[citation needed] and is generally a nuisance to the casual web-surfer and is seen as visual clutter.[citation needed] Various countermeasures have evolved over time to prevent or eliminate the appearance of advertising when a web-page is rendered. Third party programs (Ad-Aware, Adblock Plus, Spybot, pop-up blockers, etc.) and particularly, the use of a comprehensive HOSTS file can effectively eliminate the visual clutter and the extra time and bandwidth needed to render many web pages. The use of specific entries in the HOSTS file to block these well-known and persistent marketing and click-tracking domains can also aid in reducing a system's exposure to malware by preventing the content of infected advertising or tracking servers to reach a user's web-browser.[citation needed]
Two-tier programs exist in the minority of affiliate programs; most are simply one-tier. Referral programs beyond two-tier resemble multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing but are different: Multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing associations tend to have more complex commission requirements/qualifications than standard affiliate programs.[citation needed]
