Is Affiliate Marketing Possible Without A Website
I often get asked can I do Affiliate Marketing with no website, well the short answer is Yes you can, but No I wouldn’t! Let me explain what I mean by saying this.
Firstly if you are new to affiliate marketing, let’s just explain what affiliate marketing is. The best way to explain this is you are promoting others peoples’ products and services and in return if people take action or make a purchase you get paid a commission.
This can be very lucrative, and it’s a business you can start without any set up costs, making it a growing industry across all types of people.
Okay let’s dive straight into pros and cons of starting your affiliate business with no website.
Promotion of Affiliate Links Without a Website
Social Networks – As you probably know these are massive now with sites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and many more. I would be very surprised if you were not already a member of these sites. By connecting with people within your niche you can then promote your links to them.
BEWARE ! – Not all social networks allow you to do this, and there are certain ways to do this without being classed as a spammer. Get this label and you may as well give up. So although a great source of connections. Be genuine and build relationships this can make for a slow build, but easily achieved.
Offline Networking – Good old-fashioned talking to people face to face … remember that ! If your product or service solves a great problem that there is a huge target market for then just talking to friends, family, the bloke in the pub or even business networking events may just prove very lucrative.
Forums – Online communities are a great place to meet like-minded people, again the building of relationships is vital and this can take some time, but the rewards can be huge. Sites such as Quora.com, Warrior Forum or for affiliate marketing check out Wealthy Affiliate. Some forums allow you to place links direct in your signature where people can click. Top tips are to be active and helpful and you will succeed.
Although all these ways will probably get you some results, in time, I suggest a website would help you build you a more solid business. Check out the benefits below.
The Benefits of Having a Website
Content Creation – Creating your own content is a great way to quickly brand yourself as the go to person in your niche. This content is ideal for sharing onto social networks and forums without having to worry about having your account suspended. Creating regular blogs about your niche is the best way to create content fast.
Building A Solid Business – Having your own website that you own becomes the base for your business online, your shop window to the world wide web so to speak.
Builds Trust – As I have already suggested building trust online is the key to succeeding having your own website enables you to be seen as the expert, and in turn builds that trust.
Free Traffic – By creating great keyworded articles you have every chance that your posts will rank in the search engines which will give you a continuous flow of free traffic. Let’s face it we all like free traffic!
So to just recap… Yes you can easily start affiliate marketing with no website, but in time I would definitely look at progressing your business so that you have a website as the core of your business. If you can do it from day one!
