My subscribers have probably noticed a decrease in my blog posts over the last while. I’ve sat down to write so many times, and then I’ve stopped. I’ve felt as paralyzed and shocked by this pandemic situation, at times, as I’m sure you have. It seems to have stolen away my ambition to update this blog on a weekly basis as I should be doing.
Over the past two weeks, I’ve received a couple of emails from new subscribers that have deeply touched my heart. These people thanked me for the free information they received on how to earn money over time by writing books. But they each asked me, “How can I earn money NOW? I need money NOW.” Suddenly, I realized the serious situation we’re all in here.
Every night, I’ve asked myself, “How can I help them NOW?” I don’t have all the answers, but I have a few ideas that I hope you can use to your advantage.
How can I earn money NOW?
Since we’re all being asked to follow social distancing protocols right now, our best place to earn money is online. In the free book I emailed you, there are links to freelancing websites such as Upwork.com, Guru.com, and Fiverr.com. I mentioned that you can use these sites to find freelance editors, graphic designers, et cetera, to help you polish the books you’re writing.
Well, what if you become one of those freelancers yourself? You can set up an account on one or more of these websites and offer your services to people all over the world. Can you write for them? Maybe you’re an editor or graphic designer? Or are you willing to review other authors’ books for them? These are all services that you can offer on these websites to start earning money now.
I’ll Pay You to Help Me Sell My Book
I send all my new subscribers an email that specifically addresses how you can earn money as an affiliate marketer. Essentially, you can start by selling other people’s books while you build your own author business on the side. This is a great way to earn income until your own book royalties kick in.

The issue with affiliate marketing is that it can take a while for payments to come through. It can be anywhere from one month to three months before the merchant you’re selling through sends a commission to your bank account.
So, here’s my offer to you: if you will help me to sell this book, then I’ll pay you a commission on top of the affiliate marketing fee you earn from selling it. As an affiliate marketer, you have no upfront costs whatsoever. All you need to do is set up your account then post the book on your social media for sale.
For every ten copies you sell, I’ll send you $5 (CAD) through PayPal. Before I pay you, I’ll need to see proof of these sales that I can verify by comparing them to my own Amazon sales reports. I won’t receive my own Amazon commissions for these sales for three months. But that’s okay. I’ll still pay you within two business days of verifying the sales you send me.
I hope this helps us both to come through this challenging time by earning some extra income on the side. Wherever you are, I wish you well. I pray our shared world will be an even better place in the near future than it ever was in the past.
