Make money by sharing advertisements online


Sharing advertisements online with friends could possibly lead to you earning some extra pocket money.

Called "referral marketing", it works roughly this way: Person A uses, or finds out about a service or product, and shares a link about it through Facebook, Twitter or even e-mail. When Person B sees Person A's recommendation and clicks on it or buys the item, Person A gets rewarded either in cash or coupons.

Online referral marketing platforms and companies, such as Churp Churp,, Gush Ad and ReferralCandy, have sprung up here.

They say that regular local users, with about 200 friends on Facebook, can earn $80 to $120 a year, with top bloggers earning more.
