04. Earning an Income Through Affiliate Marketing with Corrinne Henderson of Search By Inseam | Studio 78 Podcast

Yes, you can make money through affiliate links! Corrinne Henderson recognized a need in the niche market of tall fashion. After having trouble easily finding pants and jeans for her 35″ inseam she decided to create a website, Search by Inseam, that would allow tall women to easily find pants and jeans their length. Instead of keeping inventory, she decided to monetize her website through affiliate programs. This allowed her to obtain special links for tall clothing that she could earn a commission on when someone clicked on them.

Corrinne is a great example of how identifying a problem and implementing a solution can lead to a lucrative passive income business. Know that I use the word passive lightly because she does have to promote, blog, and maintain the site.
