How do I make money for myself or my cause?

Mulu is a great way to put your style and taste to work for you. When a visitor buys an item on your Mulu page, a portion of the resulting sales (called an affiliate commission) is given back to Mulu by the retailer. That amount generally falls in the 3 to 15 percent range of the sale price and mulu splits that commission you, or your cause, 50/50.

What are affiliate commissions?

Without knowing it, there's a very good chance that companies have been profiting off of your personal web browsing for years. For example, if you visit a review blog and then go to amazon.com, it's likely that the review blog will make money off of anything you buy at Amazon.com, no matter what. Many online retailers have affiliate programs in place which reward partners for driving additional site traffic and bolstering their sales. To learn more, see our affiliates page.

That’s about as apt a metaphor for social sharing as could be. Plus… it’s just plain catchy.
