Share and Make Some Money

100312185318resized_HandsOver the past year or so, I’ve looked at ways you can spread the word about our products and services on and receive a commission on any sales you make.

I hadn’t found an easy way for this to happen until earlier this week. I learned of a company called GetOnIc, which helps companies distribute their products through their followers and fans and then reward their followers and fans for generating sales.

I checked out the company and think what they offer could help us. So, I’ve created a widget, below, that promotes our annual membership that can be shared across your social networks. If one of your connections purchases the membership, you get a 20% commission. Commissions are deposited in your PayPal account on the 10th of the month for sales generated during the preceding month. The commission for each annual membership is $9.99.

I’m hoping this is a way for family caregivers to make some extra money. Just share the widget, below, through Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest; when you make a sale, you receive a 20% commission. And, as you share, you also can add your own thoughts about memberships on and how a membership has made a difference in your life. Anyone can share the widget and make money.

Let me know what you think of this and how it works for you. Thanks so much!

(Update: I’ve added eBooks, books and services you can share to earn money.)

    I don’t think I can profit from this but I already gave three orange reusable sacks to my CNA for excess magazines Mom and I have to keep in and told her all about and to look it up. She shared a website with me and we are having a conversation all about our website etc. I love! What would I do without it!

    I love this idea too. Just to clarify, do we have to be logged into Facebook each time it is shared? How would I share it on Twitter?

      Hi Teresa! I’m so glad you like this. Yes, you want to be logged into Facebook because it’s the only way you can share the widget on your timeline. In essence, you’re sharing information about our membership just as you share an article or quote box. To share on Twitter (and Facebook and Pinterest), simply click the icon for each on the widget. It’s just like sharing an article. Let me know if you have any other questions and your experiences with this.

        Is there a way to share it on other social media sites without involving Facebook? Thank you for explaining it to me. Sometimes, I need to have it repeated so I comprehend it.

          Sure, you can share on Twitter or Pinterest or through Google+. Just click the icons on the widget to share on either Twitter or Pinterest.

          Here’s the link to the store which has the products and services you can sell to make money:

          I’m happy to help so just let me know what other questions you have. This is new for me so your questions help me, too. :)
