    You can promote with articles ie bum marketing, use web 2.0 sites blogger etc, use facebook and twitter. Just cloak your affiliate link and use something that you can track - bit.ly is free and has some tracking. If you are making money promoting the product then you should get your own website for your promotions rather than relying on third party sites (and their terms of service which could change).

    you can use article directory.

    make an article anchor text your affiliate code through the article, then submit it to hundreds of article directory.

    Just go to fiverr. There you can find many people who want to write a review of any product or share your affiliate link to their followers and facebook friends. It's super easy to make money with Clickbank! Damn it. Clickbank doesn't support my country!

    No-no-no guys! You didnt understand or i didnt explain right.
    For example I go to some forum and want to sell a product, i want to give me directly link to the buyer but with my HopLink, so when someone buys, seller will know that i sold him. Like this.

      No you don't need a website you can sell the product just through your clickbank affiliate link. The link tells clickbank who has sold it so you can be paid.

      You can promote affiliate products without websites and you will have a few nice solutions for it:

      1) probably the most used article marketing - you can create a review of the product (300-500 words) and distribute it for the highest PR ezine sites

      2) Social Marketing - you can promote from Facebook , Twitter social networks (have in mind that some niches are much better then other in social networks)

      3) Video Promotion (Youtube, Metacafe, Viddler, etc) its another excellent way to promote without a site.

        If the link looks ugly, you can change it through bit.ly or any other link shortener. Left unchanged, it's pretty obvious that it's a Clickbank link.

        By doing a redirect, you can have a website name and url without having an actual website. You would just need to pay for the domain name (from about $1.50 for a .info to more for a .com) and you would need a hosting account.

    You can, but it's extremely ill advised and you may not make any sales at all.

    Here's the thing, Kamal (which to my great surprise nobody posting above has yet told you!) ... making money from selling Clickbank products is, broadly, about three things:-

    (i) You have to select products wisely (suggested guidelines here, for people who want to make money);

    (ii) You have to pre-sell effectively to well-targeted traffic;

    (iii) You have to build a list and form relationships with the people on it, so that they'll buy on the strength of your recommendation.

    These things aren't optional: you really need to do all three of them, otherwise you're probably chasing 10% of the possible money and ignoring the other 90%.

    People buy Clickbank products because they trust someone's recommendation. They buy on the strength of your relationship with them, built through your website and your autoresponder emails to your list subscribers. All your competitors who are actually making a living have a website, to promote Clickbank products, and if you don't, you'll be putting yourself at a huge disadvantage.

    There are other things you can sensibly do, in internet marketing, by "direct linking" (i.e. using affiliate links only without a website). Clickbank products are not appropriate for this at all. For you, from everything you've told us about yourself in so many other threads, this would be a very, very misguided way forward - it really would. I really don't see it having a happy ending at all.

    The posters stressing that you can do this, although technically absolutely correct in what they're saying, are actually doing you no favours at all, Kamal. Think carefully. That may be (as it has been for so many others in your position) the way only to wasting time, frustration and disillusionment.

      I totally agree with you.

      But I just want to try my method. I need a simple product which will bring me some bucks for one sale. If this method will work, next product will be with website and with your recommendations.

      Thanks everyone.

    Time and time again, internet marketers have claimed that to do business in the World Wide Web, you'd need your own website. Your own website, they say, is your headquarters in cyberspace. It's your very own digital store where you could lead potential customers and where you offer the products you have for sale. Though it's true that having your own website can greatly aid you in your quest to achieve success in the online field, a website is not the end all and be all of internet salesmanship, particularly in the line of affiliate marketing. Yes, you could make a living online as an affiliate even if you do not have the benefit of your own website!

      That wasn't the question.

      The question was whether Kamal needs a website for ClickBank affiliate marketing.

    Ok, for starters don't join any programs, they are only made for the owners to profit. So here's what you do I'll make it simple. Go to traffictravis.com and download the free keyword finder. Think about something you really like and click the keyword finder button. Type in a keyword and pick one you really like and when you have a good one go try to buy it at godaddy.com. Then, go to clickbank.com and pick a product that's related to your keyword. It's free to get any product you want just make sure it's something related to your keyword. Make blogs write articles and make videos on your product and make sure you put your keywords in your articles and on the videos description you submit... after you got your articles and videos up go to trafficgeysertraffic.com this site will automatically submit your videos all over the internet all at once so you don't have to go to each individual place to do it manually... it also does it for articles. Doing just these methods you can rank pretty good on google and get some traffic hits. Just make sure you direct people to your blog or article before your actual product this way they have some info before hand. Link your website to your blog or article and you'll never have to deal with it. But you want to have no website right? So just take out the buy a website part of this and do everything else. It's very very effective.

    In CB, look for the gravity. This gives you the number of affiliates that have successfully sold the product in the past 30 (some say 15) days. Then yes, cloak your link and put it in a forum signature on yahoo answers (don't spam or they will ban your account from answering questions), twitter (search for people who are looking for your keyword), make a facebook fan page and invite people to come there (make suggestions every so often, but offer good discussion the rest of the time), YouTube videos are huge for this. Good luck!

      While in contrast to all of those views, those of us who take the trouble to see how ClickBank define "gravity" on their own information-pages know that it's actually much longer than either of those figures.

      Nor, for the record, does the gravity figure disclose the number of affiliates who have successfully sold the product during that period, anyway. It's a little more complicated than that.

      With respect, Adrienne, it may help you to read this post to see how gravity actually works, and what it signifies, because at the moment, with apologies indeed for the dissenting tone of voice, you're simply repeating "urban myth/misinformation", here.

    Yes, you can be an affiliate without a website. The Y.tube method as mentioned above is an affective one.

    If you don't have a website you can use social networking websites to promote the product. You can sign up to blogger.com, wordpress.com, etc and create free blogs to promote your clickbank product. You could write reviews about the product on various social networking websites. But you still have have to get traffic to these blogs that you create.

    Don't expect to make a lot of sales unless you have a way of getting people to find this product that you are offering and you telling them all about it. Creating a mailing list is one way to go about it but that takes a lot of front end work.

    Good luck....

    Start getting a bit creative here.

    Sure you can sell products without owning a website.

    People do it on a daily basis...

    Try Youtube or even Physical products.

    All you need is your affiliate link...and some imagination. There are plenty of ways to promote the link - forums, YouTube, Facebook - none of them require you to have a website.
