    Yes, you can promote your affiliate links through different channels like Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and an even just an email list if you have one.

    It depends. If you need all the bells and whistles, then a website is a must have.

    On the other hand, you can still generate revenue, without one.

    A website is often needed for tracking and branding purposes; even building a list and being "autonomous".

    The Website is the most important marketing tool of your business because it will market your business 24/7 so according to me, a website is an important thing for marketing but the other ways are you can create your youtube channel and publish your video and place your link in the description section

    You don't want affiliate marketing with a website? Try this:

    + put your affiliate links in newspaper ads
    + hire telemarketer to make some phone call with your affiliate links
    + talk to your friends and discus about your affiliate links

    Should be more ideas if not using a website to promote your affiliate programs, but try that first and get some feedback which get best results for you.

    I wouldn't recommend it. Go ahead and get your own website and get serious about your business. Any attempts at so-called "fast" or easy money should be abolished from your mind.

    As others are saying, you can absolutely promote affiliate links via social media. It's how I generate most of my conversions. However, with that said, I definitely recommend creating a website. It's nice to have a place that you can call your own.

    As others have said in the thread, one way you can do it with is YouTube. In fact, you can even rank up on the first page of Google (& YouTube) for desired keyword phrases if you put out a good video with proper "Video SEO". Here's what I have done -

    Use Google Keyword Planners to find long tail keyword phrases related to your product. You'll find it's easier to rank with these keyword phrases that have monthly searches of 100-2000 rather than trying to compete with a 2 word keyword with 10000+ searches.

    Once you decide on the keyword phrase, make that the title including the exact phrase in your video title that you want to rank with. Also when you create the video & save it to your computer, make that keyword phrase the file name instead of some goofy filename like vid3627845. I think that helps when you upload it to Youtube.

    Search for your keyword phrase in Google & see if there are any video results showing up on the 1st page. Your goal will be to outrank & replace that video. If you notice now, there are often 3 videos showing up on the 1st page of Google with a ">" option for people to scroll to see more videos.

    Type in your keyword phrase in YouTube search & see what the top ranking videos are doing including what tags they are using (right click & view page source to see their tags). Use your own keyword tags & also copy their tags when you create your video.

    Repeat your keyword phrase in your description 1-2x but make sure your description makes sense & isn't a list of keywords just to stuff them in. Make the 1st line in your description your keyword followed by the URL you want people to visit. Include a link to your video channel in your description. After you upload the video, edit & add a link to the video you just uploaded in the description of your video (the https://youtube one & not the youtu.be one). If you have related videos you can create a playlist & add that link in the description as well.

    I've heard that 2-3 minute videos are the best length as possibly they rank higher as people tend to watch the full length rather than a 10-20 minute video (but others say different). I haven't followed that advice completely myself but have made 1-2 minute videos in an attempt to get people to non-digital product site of mine. However, I currently rank on the 1st page of Google (shifts every once in a while) with 7-14 minute videos. They also rank on 1st page at YouTube. YouTube has said in the past they do rank videos higher with higher view time (translation - don't bore your viewers) - https://youtube-creators.googleblog....-for-time.html

    I use pingfarm.com to submit the video https://youtube URL. I also have bought social signals in the past & am not sure if it helped or not but will continue to do so on some videos. Promote the video yourself on your social channels.

    Create different channels for each niche with keyword related titles for your channels. You can also create a broad single authority channel as some of those in the IM niche do.

    Without a website? Sure.

    Without an autoresponder? Sure, but I wouldn't recommend it. Most autoresponders now offer landing pages. So you can kill two birds with one stone.

    Convertkit is currently running a 30 Day Landing Page Challenge. Two weeks of free trial, build your list, have a chance at winning prizes.

    The Contest starts at 12:00:01 a.m. MT on April 1, 2019 and ends at 11:59:59 pm MT on April 30, 2019 https://convertkit.com/2019-landing-...allenge-rules/
    I always suggest people have at least one site where they can build bonus pages, have a contact or about page, etc. You absolutely want to be offering exclusive bonuses. This is especially important in the MMO market but everyone regardless of niche likes to believe they are getting the most for their money. I've never had a niche that didn't do better with bonuses than without.

    EDIT: If you decide to build a "utility" site I suggest you make it niche neutral. This way you can send potential customers to a bonus page that "fits" the niche. i.e. Bobsbonuses.com, thebonusvault.com etc.

    Even though like most others, i suggest you getting a website...you can totally do affiliate marketing witout one.

    I have a little video course i've created on how to do affiliate marketing on facebook without (and with) a website. You can download it right down here in my signature

    I use some intermediary bridge pages, like google documents and chatbots. The videos are specifically for the facebook platform, although you can just do the same thing and just switch the traffic platform source, like youtube.

    Alterantively, you can create a wix website or a worpress website for free. It'll just not have your domain added.

    Hope that helps.

    In my opinion, you need to promote any product/ offer using email marketing.

    90% of people will NOT buy anything at the first approach to your stuffs. The sales will be generated via follow up messages.

    In addition, you will get traffic in hands if you are promoting the upcoming products to your email lists.

    No matter what, you really want to have a hosting account so you can redirect your affiliate links. That way you control the traffic.

    If you have a hosting account, it really doesn't cost much to at least throw up a blog with some quality relevant articles and provide some social proof/presence.

    Today you cannot promote affiliate links on Facebook Ads, Google Adwords, Bing ads, etc. Because most of them have banned promoting affiliate links directly. The best way is to promote through website or creating a landing page for your offer.

    You can use Youtube. Example is, making an unboxing videos of a product and you can place your affiliate link on the descriptions.

    Yes. You can do this without a website. But its going to be a pian and you'd have to do more work than you should have.

    You can promote your affiliate links via social networks as there are a number of tools that lets you do that the right way.

    If you really want to make a business from Affiliate marketing, you'll definitely need to get a website set up. You could as well start with free blogs like blogspot and then scale up.

    I started with blogspot before owning a custom domain with my name and later advancing to owning multiple domains.

    All the best.

    Off course, affiliate marketing can be done without a website. I advice that as a newbie you start without a website and once you begin making progress, you can then start building your website. Build your affiliate marketing career by using social media platforms.

    Most people are agreeing you can do this without a website. Why do you want to though? They're easy to build now either on your with something like wix or Wordpress, or outsourcing the job. They also don't cost much to get up and running. Having a website can't hurt your affiliate sales since the traffic sources can be independent, so I'm not sure why you want to avoid using them?

    If you do affiliate marketing without a website you will not make an income unless you use paid traffic. In this case, all you do is place your affiliate URL on the different types of ads or on the thankyou page linked to your squeeze page.
    There are also softwares on affiliate markets that promote your affiliate URL without a website.

    You cant just post affiliate links on social media. Most people will just ignore it as spam and look to you as a new, inexperienced marketer that's desperate to make money online.

    With all that said and done, we can reference Super Affiliates...they have their own websites.

    The more important question is... What (and how) should you be going about with traffic?

    Because without traffic, you and your affiliate earnings will be 'dead' in the water.

    If you really want to succeed and not to make here and there some money then yes you need a website. At least a free blogspot blog or something similar might help you along the way if you are short in budget. Build it. Make traffic to come to it, monetize it well, very well, earn. Martin

    for sure!

    You can do direct linking

    In my experience, you can drive free traffic from
    facebook or Youtube to your offer

    You should try them both to see which kind of traffic is
    best for you, or you want to work with

    Then commit to master that.

    Youtube for the long term is so powerful.

    It could give you the power of generate passive income

    FaceBook You have to work until you die

    But Facebook is fast road to see the results

    Nothing is perfect. We just have to try them both

    Hope this help
