Without Your Very Own Website

nick8609 Affiliate marketing is a business model in which one could start without a website.  It is mostly a myth that a website is completely needed in order to be successful online.  Therefore, promoting affiliate products or services can be done through alternative strategies that can generate free traffic and leads, which will in time, translate into profit.

Marketing affiliate links or products with free tactics can range through a variety of methods in the Affiliate Marketing business model.  All free methods can be highly valuable if incorporated strategically into an online business.

Email Marketing-  

Promoting affiliate links using email can be extremely effective to a list.  Having a list of many people who are potential customers; or being apart of a membership site, both allow you to use email marketing as a means of promotion.  Through this way of marketing you can email these people an affiliate link which will divert them to an affiliate site.  If they follow your affiliate link and purchase the product/service, you will get a commission.

Article Marketing-

Submitting an article to a directory and getting highly targeted traffic to an article on a specific niche is common.  However, many article directories have stopped allowing authors to put an affiliate link in the author’s signature area.  The goal with article marketing is to find directories which will allow you to place affiliate links so you can proceed to build highly targeted traffic to the affiliate programs you’re promoting and then eventually convert this traffic into profit.

Yahoo Answers-

Marketing in Yahoo Answers consists of finding people who are asking related questions to your product, and then promoting your affiliate link through your answer.  However, simply pushing the affiliate link will not be effective enough to make a sale, but providing a good and valuable answer in addition to asking the asker to visit the affiliate site.  This tactic will dramatically increase the chances of making commissions and attaining leads through Yahoo Answers.

Ebook Marketing-

Viral ebook marketing is another form of marketing that can promote your affiliate programs.  Viral marketing is where you can create an ebook which explains certain information which can be valuable for the readers and make them want to share this information with their friends by passing the ebook around.  Within this viral ebook strategy the author leaves affiliate links at strategic locations in the ebook content, and as the readers click the links they will be taken to the appropriate affiliate sales page.  The entire concept of viral marketing lays in the fact that the more this ebook is passed around the better the chances are for making sales.

These are only some of the methods that can be used in generating traffic to certain affiliate programs using affiliate links.  If done properly, these methods; such as article marketing, ebook marketing, and email marketing, can provide highly targeted traffic to these programs for possibly many years, or as long as the links remain active.  There are various other methods that can generate traffic and without having “your very own website”.  The tactic of not having to have your own website will make the goal of becoming a successful internet marketer easier to attain; especially if one is just starting out.

Janice A website is a fairly inexpensive business tool that serves a purpose for both you and your clients. For you, it is a fairly inexpensive way to advertise. Obtaining an appropriate domain name for your business does not cost very much any more.
