Affilate Marketing: CPA (Cost Per Action) Network where affiliates are paid to drive traffic to a website. The network rewards the affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate's marketing efforts. The affiliates receive a commission on all referred sales or lead to a merchant.
Amazon: Amazon has an affiliate program that allows people to sell products listed on their site.
Blog: You can earn money with a blog by promoting affiliate offers, selling books or stuff from Amazon, with Google Adsence or by selling advertising space.
Ebay: Sell your own products or you can offer to companies to sell their product or overstock inventory. I sold many products on ebay form companies in the outdoor activities niche like roller skates and snowshoes. Often companies do not have someone internally for dealing with online sales and are always ready to sell more. Usually, they are very receptive to this kind of proposal.
