The secret to making passive income, faster, using Instagram and Facebook, and all of your other social channels, is to use Viglink's ANYWHERE tool that lets you create single, trackable links that can be placed on and promoted on your social channels, in your newsletters, in your blogs, in your mini-magazines. ANYWHERE>
Depending on the merchant, when someone clicks that link and/or buys, you make money, 24/7. And not only do you make money on the product they click on, but if they buy anything else from that merchant during the time they are browsing, you make commission on that, too!
Do you have a large following on Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook or Twitter? With ANYWHERE links, from Viglink, you can create a single trackable link and promote it on those sites to create passive income for yourselves. You don't need to have a blog (although we recommend it highly for SEO and other purposes), to generate passive income this way.
Will you make A LOT of money, fast? NO, unless you're able to put a decent budget behind paid ad promotion on your social platforms, but, if you can do that, it's very possible to make quite a bit of money, quickly, if the link is surrounded by the right content and if your audience trusts your advice.
If you can’t put money behind paid promotions, it’s still possible to make quite a lot of money from affiliate products sales, but it requires consistency in blogging, sending out newsletters, etc. and it will take 3-5 years to start seeing real money from commissions on affiliate product sales.
Commissions on product sales generally range from 2-10%, with the average being about 4-5%. However, it is possible to make more, because some merchants also pay on clicks.
So, grab your coffee or tea or wine, and read the rest of this LONG blog post where I will share with you step by step instructions on how to use Viglink's ANYWHERE tool to create passive income for yourselves, faster!
WE USE ANYWHERE LINKS FOR OUR CLIENTS, TOO.

HOW DOES USING VIGLINK'S ANYWHERE TOOL ACTUALLY WORK TO HELP YOU MAKE PASSIVE INCOME, FASTER?
If you're not familiar with Viglink yet, it is the site that Jaime Derringer of Design Milk uses, and they are what is known as a super aggregator, meaning they aggregate other affiliate marketing sites like Share-A-Sale, which runs Wayfair's program, into their system. They have most of the big affiliate marketing sites aggregated under their site, making it a *onestop* shop to find almost any merchant and very easy to use.
NOTE: Viglink does not have www.rewardstyle.com aggregated onto their site, although many of Reward Style's most popular merchants are available to affiliate with through Viglink, like Anthropologie, etc.
Please note: even though hundreds of desirable home decor merchants are on Viglink, you will not be automatically approved to affiliate with all of Viglink’s merchants and it can often take a week to get into Viglink’s system. Your application has to be approved, which is a manual process.
If you have a problem getting approved, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can get you approved faster.
Also, approval to affiliate with merchants like West Elm is a manual process, meaning the merchant (not Viglink) decides whether to accept you into their program or not and I cannot speed this up for you.
However, merchants for which most of our clients are automatically approved include: Nordstrom’s, 2 Modern, Y Lighting, Lamps Plus, Jonathan Adler, Anthropologie, Amara Living, Wayfair, and many others so there will be plenty of wonderful products to choose from, almost right away.
