    Lots of folks start out simply be finding a product that they like on ClickBank, the promote the heck out of it.

    Your affiliate link for the product leads the prospect directly to the sales page. If prospect buys, you get paid. End of story.

    It may not be the best way in the world, but it does work.

    There are two basic ways to make money without a website, one of which I still use.

    1. Use an affiliate site. Here you are still sending people to a site, but it is hosted by the affiliate program, and has a coded link so you get credit.

    For example, www. affiliate program .com/rid=adewale

    This way you don't have to create a page, or host it - your focus is getting people to that page.

    However, ezinearticles, and other places will not let you use these affiliate links. On top of that, you do not have control over the site, or its sales message, and won't be able to build a list. That's why I do not use this method, though some do well with it.

    2. Selling services via WSO or word of mouth. This is where the bulk of my income has come from. Either through new product creation, ghostwriting, or one-on-one coaching. If it's a product, I host it on my webpage to help build a list and offer special bonuses. However, you can upload products to eJunkie, and not have a site at all.

    I rely a lot on word of mouth. My coaching clients, for example, tend to recommend me to others. sure, they don't all pan out, but I do not have a website of any kind for my services. Yes, that may not be the best strategy, but I can only handle so many clients at one time and still give them the attention they deserve.

    So, it is possible and viable, but make it a goal to get hosting and a domain of your own as soon as you can.

      Well you just need to joing Commission Junction, Clickbank or any other affiliate network. THen you get your affiliate link for any product you chose. Then you will receive commision when someone buys using your affiliate link.

        You must be heard from a lot of 'gurus' said that you don't need a website to be Internet marketing.

        The truth is - you need a website!

        Even if an affiliate, you need a website to build list first even before you start to promote any affiliate program.

        If you buy PPC traffic, then you're like buying traffic for the product's owner, and he/she got free traffic from Adwords without spending a dime!

        Next time, when you buy a product and he/she mentioned that you don't need a website, you may Google his/her name see whether he got a squeeze page or not :p

        Anyway, Anyhow, you need you a website

        - Dennis.

        P.S. Method that I mentioned above is practically for long term business. If you plan for short term game, then go for it without a single website.

          Like Dennis said.

          And...

          You don't technically need one. But you are missing out on a lot of potential $$$ without having one with an opt-in form of some kind.

          sad to say that you will need a website, only simply because you will need to build a list,

          Here is a method I teach people how to make money affiliate marketing without spending a dime their first month so they can begin to build their list and make money, untill they can afford a website.

          First go to freewebs.com and set up a free website.

          2nd go to responsebot.com and set up a free auto responder account

          3rd turn your freewebs site into a lead capture page, a high converting page that is short and easy to read.

          4.) start to send targeted traffic to this page.

          5.) After they sign up to your list direct them to a blog without any affiliate products on it to pre sell them and brand you. This page can be your myspace or face book profile, or a blog introducing yourself, and what you do.

          6.) When they go to their email to click the confirm link, you will have the option to senf them to a blog with affiliate products on them.

          the whole point of this is to introduce your prospect to you and your business, pre sell them and then get them on your list.

          my list grows by about 100 each month and I convert at about 3% per weekly email.

          This is a good way to begin your affiliate marketing carrer with out a penny.

            Hi

            You can do affiliate marketing without a website.

            What you can do though is use a free blog and drive your traffic to the blog. You can still capture the visitors details and it gets round the problem with Ezine Articles not allowing affiliate links.

            Best wishes

            Mary

            Does your responsebot account work?

            Mine doesn't any more... (well, sometimes, it works, sometimes not); which is not a good thing when you manage a subscribers list.

            So, my advice would be: be careful when chosing your free autoresponder provider.

              Although you can make money without a website you aren't really building any real assets. If you are truly serious about your business you will want a website or two.

    Some of these folks who don't use websites will do straight out of the box PPC for affiliate programs. However, you are relying totally on the skills and salesmanship of the sales page.

    I have tested this and found that having a middle page (between my the PPC ad and the offer) actually improves the conversion rate in most of my cases at least. However, everyone is different so testing is necessary.

    Unlike most of the people who have posted so far, I don't believe that you need to purchase your own domain for your "business". Instead use parasite hosting to your advantage...get a blogspot or wordpress blog, plop down a couple pages, or try a squidoo or hub page.

    I am assuming you are brand new to affiliate marketing. Are you dizzy yet from all the offers, advice and people trying to sell you on stuff? If so, welcome to internet marketing. It will get better. Just take your time, don't rush out buying everything under the sun that promises you "the answer", and soak it all in. I am not saying to take action now. I am just saying don't try to do/learn everything at once.

    Don't let folks talk you into getting an opt-in form until you have read up a little on copywriting and storytelling. If you simply throw up an opt-in form and start chunking offer after offer at your list, then you will be like 95% of all the list builders out there and trust me...that ain't a good thing.

    • Take action on what you can do now.
    • Try out something new as your skillsets improve.
    • If you find something that works and is scalable...systemize it.
    • Rinse and repeat...over and over again.
    Good Luck.

      Here's a trick I don't see many people using. I did this a lot before I taught myself how to build sites.

      You can add an inframe to a blog and make it appear as the original website and still get comissions as an affiliate.

      Here's an example: Look At the URL First
      Then scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see the actual blog:-)

      PM if you need the inframe html code.
