A few years ago, I decided I wanted to learn to play the drums. I've always loved the drums. Whenever I listen to music, I hear the drums first. I can listen to a great jazz drummer like Art Blakey for hours on end. I'd give up almost anything to be as good as Glenn Kotche of Wilco.
Hi, The idea is not to spam but to make a little in return for the links you already provide in your Instructable. I often show my viewers where they can purchase the supplies needed to complete projects. I usually place a link to where I purchased and an alternative link for cheaper items. Many 'ibles have video links for their projects, why not get paid? I don't want to offend anyone with spam, that's for sure. Thanks for commenting.
Haha. I have been working on this 'ible for about 6 months and decided to finish and publish yesterday. I'm not sure how the eBay "scheme" fits in with posting Instructables as this is just Instructables related, but there are always ways to include them. This 'ible may actually be perfect for just that, an eBay Affiliate Scheme. "I'll show you how to earn an income on for just $5.00." Someone already posted one below.
Here's an example: Your instructable is about 'How to use Sex Toys' and you have a link to a blow up doll. When someone clicks on that link, they go straight to ebay and, like magick, find a list of people selling blow up dolls. However, they get distracted by rolex watches and buy a watch instead, but you still get a percentage of the sale. You just have to use the code from ebay partners.
I've done all this, but not made a great deal out of it yet and really, instructables should be scooping up all this cash for themselves, so I sent them an email - but no reply! If anybody from instructables management is reading this - please get in contact with me ASAP and all will be explained!
Oftentimes people ask me how I made money on the Internet. I've been doing this about 35 years and the same thing is true now as it was back in 1995—I follow my passion. When you follow what you are truly passionate about, the money will come. The saying that it is so much easier to do what you love is true, even on the Internet. Sometimes, it might even be easier!
In order to start hearing that ka-ching sound on the net, you have to build a website. A blog is a website that updates continuously with the most current information front and center. These have become more popular and tend to make a bit more money than static websites that don't typically change.
