No Website Needed To Make Extra Income
Author: Kenneth Echie

Are you looking to make extra income online but you don't have the experience or capital to start your own online business? You need not worry. There are a lot of online marketing options available to you. One of them is affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing provides newbies like you the chance to make money online without having your own product to sell. All you need to do is to sign up with an affiliate marketing program. This program is usually owned by an online merchant or retailer. After you sign up, you can start picking the products you want to promote. As an affiliate, you are paid by the merchant for your services on a commission basis, that is whenever you have directed a visitor to the merchant's site and the visitor buys something.

Becoming an affiliate in an affiliate marketing program is often quick and easy, and for most affiliate programs, signing up is free. But despite these and all the benefits of affiliate programs, internet newbies are still hesitant to get into affiliate marketing. One of the reasons is not having a website of their own to start marketing affiliate products. This article is to tell them no website is needed to make extra income with affiliate marketing.

Many affiliate marketing strategies that lead to success exist without the need for a website. Among these strategies are email marketing, pay per click, offline promotions, writing e-books, writing ezines and engaging in online discussions like forums, chats, message boards and others.

* E-mail Marketing

Email marketing, or maintaining email lists, is actually the most popular affiliate marketing strategy that doesn't require the affiliate to maintain a website. In this affiliate marketing strategy, what you basically do is maintain a list of the email address of your prospective customers and provide them with articles that are relevant with the affiliate products and programs you are promoting. Articles that you provide your contacts do not need to always be promotional, for many individuals find such types of email annoying. Rather, it would be better if you provide them with something informative and just add small text ads that link to your merchant's site.

* Pay Per Click (PPC)

Pay Per Click is a method used to drive visitors to affiliate products. This a way to get top ranking in the search engines without the need to do search engine optimization (SEO). Since you donít have a website, you donít even need to concern yourself with SEO. You basically pay for top ranking position in the search engines. In this strategy, youíll be sending the visitors directly to your merchantís website. Since youíre starting out and have limited capital, you need to watch this strategy carefully so you donít over spend.

* Offline Promotion

There are many ways you can use to promote your affiliate products offline. Among the common medium used for such promotions are classified ads, brochures and flyers. Classified ads would generally work better compared to the other two because classified ads in periodicals often get a wider audience.

* Writing Free e-books

If you have a knack in writing, writing an e-book can be the best way for you to promote your affiliate products in the absence of an actual website. Just like in emails and newsletters, your readers would better appreciate your e-book if it is not too promotional but rather informative. Be sure, however, to make the contents of your e-books relative to the actual affiliate products you are promoting. And just like in email marketing, you can just place text ads or banners somewhere near the end of your e-book that links to the merchant's site.

* Writing Free Ezines

Ezines are publications or articles that aim to inform individuals about a particular topic. If you don't have a website and yet want to be an affiliate, you can use ezines to promote your affiliate products or to insert links to your merchant's site. If you have a website, your ezine article may actually work well as content for your site. But since you have no website, you can just submit your free ezine articles to article directories, like goarticles.com, ezinearticles.com and others.

* Online discussions

With or without a website, you just can't ignore online discussions because they are great venues for marketing your affiliate products. In chats, forums, message boards and discussion boards with topics related to your products, you can easily find people who may be interested with the products you are promoting.

I hope the above strategies have convinced you that you donít need a website to start affiliate marketing. Thereís no reason for you to continue to sit on the sideline and watch others make all the affiliate money for themselves. I urge you to get involved and be part of the fun we call affiliate marketing.
