Promoting products through affiliate marketing is a good way to earn money online.
To achieve maximum effectiveness as affiliates it is recommended that we have a website to promote our products, but we will see that even without one, we can generate our affiliate commissions.
To promote products and earn a commission with affiliate marketing, we only need to bring traffic through our affiliate links so that people see the product we recommend, and in case they buy it, we will not take our commission.
One of the easiest ways to achieve traffic and generate commissions with affiliate marketing is through a website, where we can write articles and put banners to drive that traffic to our products.
However, affiliate marketing allows you to generate money immediately since we do not need to have our own product or worry about payments or product delivery, simply if we bring enough people through our affiliate links to see the product’s sale page.
And we can achieve this without having a website!
How to promote our affiliate links without a website
To start driving traffic to the products that we recommend as affiliates, we can use the following methods:
1. Use of pay per click (PPC)
Use of pay per click (PPC) to drive traffic to the merchant’s website through our affiliate links. With this model, we hire space to publish an ad on a website with traffic, and every time someone clicks on it, we pay.
It is a good way to drive traffic to the products we promote.
2. Posting in online forums
Posting in online forums related to the niche in which we have products as affiliates allows us to include our affiliate links in the signature of the posts we publish. If we post good information or solve issues and questions that people ask in the forums, people will want to know who we are and will see our link to the product we promote.
3. Writing articles in the directories
Writing articles in the directories that are very frequented sites on the Internet and, as in the case of before, allows us to include affiliate links in the resource box or biography of the author. People reading our articles can visit the website of the product and buy it, making us earn the commission as affiliates.
4. Post on social media
Post on social media. Social networks are in fashion and are increasingly used to publish affiliate links. We just have to create an account on the most popular ones, such as Facebook and Twitter, and start publishing content related to the products we promote without forgetting our affiliate links.
5. Post comments
Post comments and posts them on other people’s websites. For this method to be effective, we must look for important blogs and pages with good information on topics related to our niche and in the articles they publish include a comment on the content of the article.
So, as we have seen, it is possible to make money as affiliates even without a website, and in fact, this allows us to start testing affiliate marketing for free and start making money with the commissions.
So as you see, money is not an inconvenience to start generating commissions with affiliate marketing.
