Money-Making Option You Can Start Pool-Side This Weekend

Ok, maybe not ‘pool-side’ because your laptop could get wet… but here is an idea you can do from home this summer.

Start a Book Review Website

(Or a magazine review website for the beach bums who like to travel light).

What You’ll Need:

  • Computer with access to the internet
  • A WordPress or Blogger Account
  • A publisher or affiliate account with an online bookstore.

Getting Started:

Step 1 – Toss that book or magazine you’ve been meaning to read into your beach bag or suitcase for your family trip to the beach or to see Aunt Verna.

Step 2 – Commit to writing a short, but helpful review of your latest read when you get back home.  Love it? Hate it? What would you have wanted to know about the book before purchase? Share anything you think other readers will find helpful.

Step 3 – Login to your publisher account for any of the many online bookstores.  Find a promotional link.

Step 4 – Login to your blog account and publish a post that includes your promotional link.  Now you are all set to receive credit when anyone buys the book or subscribes to a new magazine after reading your review.

If you commit to adding 1 review each weekend you’ll have 12 reviews making money for you on the internet. Once they are up, the work is done!  Not bad for a pool-side option.

What Else?

Many people get hung-up on the look and feel of their book review website.  However, you should keep in mind that readers want good reviews… not flashy banners and images.  The most successful book reviews are those that contain honest, helpful details.

What’s holding you back? Go launch your own book review website today!
