Can Affiliate Marketing Be Done Without a Website?

Internet Marketing Strategy No Comments »

In the above video, we answer the question “Can affiliate marketing be done without a website”? First, what is affiliate marketing?
Very simply, it’s selling other people’s products or services and getting paid for it.

There are five steps with affiliate marketing:
Step #1 Decide which products, services or niche, you want to be in.
Step #2 Join the affiliate network that offers those products or services.
Step #3 Get your affiliate link to promote.
Step #4 Put that link or links in front of people who are already looking for those products or services.
Step #5 People purchase through your affiliate link, you get paid.

It’s that simple. Affiliate marketing is a great way to break into the make money online world. In this video, we’re going to look at five methods for being successful with affiliate marketing without a website.

Method #1 Write an ebook and put all your affiliate links in the book.

This method can definitely work but it does take some time. Writing an ebook is not difficult if you want to put the time in. But if you don’t want to do that, there are other services that can actually do the work for you. And one of the services that you can use is something called Fiverr. Fiverr is a search engine of services. You can find someone who will write a short ebook for you for only $5. So, you can get your ebook written for you for a super affordable price if you’re not into writing it yourself. It’s just a matter of finding that particular provider who you would like to write your ebook and then you settle on a price with them, and they’ll write the book for you. Now whether you write the book yourself, or you have someone write it for you, the ebook should have really good content. You want to make sure you’re giving people good value and the better the ebook is, the more chance that people will actually read it. And the more people that read it, the more people will see your affiliate links. The more people who see your affiliate links, the higher your chances are that they could click on your link and go make a purchase (which you would get paid for). Writing an ebook and putting your affiliate links in it is one method that you can use to do affiliate marketing, and make some money online, without having your own website.

Method #2 Posting affiliate links on Pinterest.

Pinterest consists of different boards, and people put up boards, and then they put up images on these boards. Here are the steps for using this method of putting your affiliate links on Pinterest. I broke them down into five basic steps:

Step #1 Pick your niche.
Pick the area or subject you want to focus on.

Step #2 Go to various affiliate networks find five affiliate products that would fit nicely into that niche.                                                                                                               You’re going to be posting about these 5 affiliate products five to 10 times a day. So you want to make sure that you have five different affiliate products that you can plug in.

Step #3 Create five boards on Pinterest.
Pinterest is an image-rich platform. People enjoy Pinterest because they see lots of cool pictures, and they look at the pictures and they decide whether they want to go take a peek and see what’s behind those pictures. They want to see what type of information there is associated with those pictures.

Step #4 You have to get lots of images of your products. You have to get lots of images that you can be posting to these five different boards.

Step #5 Post those images on those boards, and then have affiliate links down in there so that people can get to them.

People will look at the boards and click on the images so they can get more information. And if you’re offering something that they’re looking for, they may click on your affiliate link, purchase through that link, and you will get paid!

Method #3 Leave helpful comments on forums.

You’re not just leaving comments on these forums, you’re adding value. You’re leaving quality information and helping people answer questions. People appreciate that. So, you would find top forums in your niche, go to those forums and find people who are asking questions, and then provide honest, thoughtful answers to those questions. This is all about helping people. You really want to be helpful and add value to that forum thread. When people read your answers they’ll really appreciate you. They will see your affiliate link and they may go to that affiliate link click on it, and even make a purchase through your affiliate link.

This method works pretty well. It’s not a bad short term plan to make money online with affiliate marketing. It does take a lot of time, though. You have to find those forums you have to make sure that you’re digging into them, and finding the people who are asking questions in an area that you have some expertise in. So it’s good for the short term but not the best long range plan for earning income online as an affiliate marketer. You’d have to continually spend all of your time finding these forums and commenting on them. It’s kind of hard to scale, and the only way you can really scale your results is to either spend all of your time doing it, or hire people to do it.

Method #4 Using Google AdWords to market your affiliate products.

Google AdWords is a platform that allows you to advertise using what we call keywords.
The secret here is to find affiliate networks that don’t mind you using their keywords to advertise with. And there are some affiliate networks that allow you to do just that. The way that you find that out is you have to go to the affiliate networks Terms of Service and read them carefully. If they say that you can use their keywords, then great, this method will work for you.

I kind of consider this a short term method also. You can scale it up with more ads if you find out that the ads you’re doing are working really well, but it is a little bit labor intensive and time intensive. Another drawback of this method is that the affiliate networks can change their terms pretty much anytime they want. So you may have several ad campaigns running that are doing well, and the next thing you know the affiliate network says “Whoa, hold on, no we’re not going to let you use those keywords to advertise with anymore”. If this happens, you’d have to put your campaigns on hold and start all over. So that is one of the drawbacks of this method. This method can be effective for making affiliate commissions without a website, but Google AdWords can be a little bit difficult to learn also there’s a bit of a learning curve. So if you’re going to get into this you want to make sure that you learn as much about Google AdWords, and writing a successful ad campaign, as you can before you put any money into it.

Method #5 Start a Facebook group focused around a particular niche.

You can start a Facebook group around a particular niche, and then add members to that group who show interest in that niche. You then post content related to that niche. You can build a large group of followers who are really interested in your content, who really appreciate your content, and who will actually purchase from the affiliate links that you post. Facebook groups do take a lot of time to manage, and you do have to make sure you’re putting out real quality content. Content that helps people solve their problems.

One of the things you do need to be careful of is that sometimes people will join your group because they want to market to the other group members that you have in your group. So I think it’s important that when you start your group, you set up your guidelines. You let people know right from the start that they are not allowed to post their links in your group. If they do, you give them a warning. If they continue to post their links and promote their particular products in your group, then you’re going to have to remove them from the group. But most people don’t do that, And again, you can develop and build a large group of people who are rabid about finding out what you’re going to say next. People who can’t wait to see what your next live stream going to be about. If you’re offering quality products and services that relate directly to that niche, chances are they’re going to click on those links, and if they like what they see, they can purchase through your links. Then you would get paid.
