Localbitcoins Affiliate marketing, in which you promote a product or service and earn commission on every new customer you refer, is one of the easiest ways to start earning money online.
Of course that’s not to say that it is easy to make a lot of money, but it does have the advantage that anybody can do it.
Even if you don’t have a website you can promote these referral programs to earn some extra pocket money through social media, forums, or recommending a product to friends and family (be careful to only do this if its a product worth recommending though!).
If you do have a website or app then affiliate programs can potentially earn you lot more revenue and profit than regular advertising – because you know your own audience best, so you know what products they may like and how to present those products to them in a way that is friendly, useful, and appealing to them.
If you take the time to sift through the vast number of referral programs out there to find products or services which are genuinely good quality and have the potential to appeal to your audience, and then make sure that you research and test them before recommending them to others, then you can earn a good income whilst also providing people with valuable and useful information – a win-win situation.

In order to help you to find the best ones to promote I’ve picked out 20 of my own favourites, with some of the best products as well as the highest commissions.
