Course Description

Would you like to create your own simple bookstore website to earn an income?

Perhaps you've been thinking of ways to:

  • Earn a second job side hustle income
  • Raise money for your school
  • Contribute extra funds towards a charity or church that you're passionate about
  • Do some fundraising for your club, network or group

Is there a way to earn money without putting in hours of ongoing effort?


This course lays out the steps for starting a free bookstore website, selling books that suit your chosen audience. By signing up to the affiliate programs of major bookstores (where the bookstores pay you a percentage of each sale that comes from your website), you'll be able to earn a passive income to help support yourself or those around you.

This course will lead you step-by-step through the process of:

  • Choosing a name for your bookstore
  • Building a website for your store
  • Signing up to affiliate programs
  • Adding books to your store
  • Opening the "doors" of your store

Even though this is a simple course, it provides a step-by-step look at how you can set up your bookstore in a few short hours. I welcome your feedback and look forward to helping you get your bookstore set up for success!
