    Jack,

    Love the new screen casting compared to the video camera. What software are you using to do the screen cast?

    Jack,
    How do you become an Amazon affiliate (or affiliate for other companies)? Is it as easy as signing up?

    Some companies have approval processes and take some effort (like eBay) but Amazon is simple. Go to

    https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/

    Sign up and start referring.

    Wow that is just too easy! They actually pay you for this? What a bunch of suckers! That’s 5 minutes of “work” for a potentially endless stream of income.

    Don’t get over excited the commission is like 4-8% depending on monthly volume. I do about 500 in earnings most months and really good around the holidays. But when you consider that it is all extra income for very little real work, it isn’t bad. I just wouldn’t try building my primary income on it.
