Want to do affiliate marketing but don't have a website? Are you a beginner and don't want to make one? After reading this article, you will know how to make money from affiliate marketing without a website.
You can do affiliate marketing without a website
Affiliate marketing is often done with a website, but for some reason, you have decided you don't want to build a website. Maybe it's because of the cost, or you have not the knowledge to make one? Regardless of the reason, affiliate marketing can be done without a website.
With affiliate marketing, you need to find your niche and do some research. You need to do this work regardless you want to make a website or not. You need to find the problems people have in the niche, and you need to find a solution for them. The solution usually needs to be a product they can buy through your affiliate link. Your affiliate offer can be a physical product or an info product.
Affiliate marketing with youtube
Youtube is a growing platform for entertainment. Many people also search on youtube for answers to their problems. I have done it, and you have probably done it.
So you need to find problems people have in your niche and give them a solution. Usually, you need to present the problem, talk a bit about it and give them the solution.
The best way is to give them a story you have experienced, and you tell them how you solved it. In the book Expert Secrets, you will learn how to frame the story.
The solution needs to be something the viewer need to buy through your affiliate link. Now you can give a demo of the product and tell how it works, people love to know more about what they will buy.
I also recommend that you show them how they can buy. The viewer clicks your link, land on this site and you walk them through the sales process.
For experts out there, I also recommend you to give them bonuses if they buy through your link. That way they have a reason for using your link.
So why should they use your link? Because you want them to succeed and you are giving them something extra that will help them succeed. Don't give random bonuses.
Video marketing can be done in several ways:
- Be in the front of the camera and talk about the solution.
- Record a slideshow or your computer screen where you speak.
- Droodle videos where you speak.
- Do a mix of the above.
It's advised to show your face while you do this so people can connect with you. You can also do the video without showing your face in the beginning, but remember that to show more of your self usually is positive for the marketing effect. You can read more about affiliate marketing on Yoube here.
Use social media to do affiliate marketing
You can join groups on facebook and comment on other peoples questions. Give them right answers and remember not to post your affiliate links to early. Let people know you before you try to sell to them. Someone who joins and posts affiliate links will be removed from the group. You need to shorten your links with bit.ly or similar.
Twitter can be a good solution. Tweet a lot of good information and questions in your niche. Remember to use proper hashtags and get some following. Then you can tweet some posts with affiliate links and test if you get someone to click.
You can post on Instagram and get followers. On Instagram, you can't have a clickable link in your posts, but you can have in your bio.
Work hard and gain followers. Then you can in every six posts add a "Link in bio" text in the caption to ask people click your link.
Email marketing can be very lucrative if done correctly
With an autoresponder like Getresponse, you can create a landing page. Design a landing page and give away something for free to people that join your newsletter. Create a headline with an offer, so people want to give you their email address.
The free giveaway can be an eBook, mini-course, infographics or something else people in your niche value. Then you can send them that you promised and now you have their email.
Send them information that they will enjoy. After some emails to gain trust, you can offer them a solution to their problem that is an affiliate offer. There are several ways to do email marketing, but this is something everyone should do. The money is in the list.
The downside is that you need an autoresponder and they usually cost a little money. The cost is small, and you need to invest to receive money.
You can create a free website
If you don't want to spend money on a website, you can create a free website on WordPress.com or similar sites. The site is easy to start and easy to design.
A free website can be a solution that can make the above options more easily. Commenting on forums or blog post with a link to your website is usually more accepted then directly to an affiliate link.
You can also join Wealthy Affiliate and receive a free course and two free websites.
You can write on Medium
You can join Medium and write there. You will get more traction with your articles since Medium has many readers.
Start a membership group on Facebook
For this, you need to know something about a topic that you will teach people about. Let's say you know how to lose weight. Then you can make a website on wordpress.com and signup for a PayPal business account.
In PayPal, you need to set up a recurring payment connected to a PayPal button. There are several helpful articles on Paypal on how to do this.
Start a closed facebook group and record some videos that will help people lose weight. Write a sales letter for your group on the free website. At the end of the page, you have your PayPal button so they can pay. When people buy, send them an invite on Facebook to your group. There they will find several videos they can start to watch. Use the Unit section in the Facebook group.
Every day you can answer questions and engage with your customers. Every week you can have one hour live Q&A session and maybe add some tips and tricks every week. That way your customers find value in your group and will continue to be a member.
You need to know a bit about the topic you want to teach, but remember you don't need to know everything. Someone once said you need to be a step ahead of your customers.
