Today, we’re going to learn about how to do affiliate marketing without a website in 2020.
Whenever I visit affiliate marketing forums, a common question I see people asking is: Is It Possible To Do Affiliate Marketing Without A Website?
The answer is YES!
You really don’t need a website to start promoting other people’s products and there are many ways to go about it.
In this step by step tutorial, we’re going to take a look at just one of the many ways you can start affiliate marketing today without a website and make money!
This guide is completely newbie friendly so if you’re just starting out, this guide is just for you
Basically, we’re going to go about this in four simple steps
- Join an Affiliate Program
- Find an offer
- Gather information on the product
- Write a review
- Publish the review
Don’t worry we’re going to go through each of these steps
Step #1: Join an affiliate program
I know this sounds obvious but let’s do it anyway.
If you haven’t joined an affiliate program, go ahead and do so.
What is an affiliate program?
An affiliate program is an arrangement in which an online merchant pays an affiliate a commission to promote their products or services.
So, again, if you haven’t yet joined an affiliate program, you need to join one now as this is the place where we’ll go to find all our affiliate products.
To help you out, here is a list of the most popular affiliate programs right now
- Amazon Associates
- And much more
In this tutorial, our focus will be on Jvzoo
Step #2: Find an offer to promote
If you want to make great sales, you have to be careful about the products you choose.
First, you need to choose a product that is yet to launch.
Whenever a new product is introduced into the market, the very first thing that people do is go online and search for a review of the product.
They do this because they want to see if the product is actually worth purchasing.
If you choose a product that is already in the market, you’ll find that it’ll be much harder to get some eyeballs on your review.
That’s mainly because others have already written so many reviews on the product that a new review will have little chance of success.
With a new product, there are no reviews yet so you have the opportunity to be among the first to create a review. This also means that you’ll rank easier on Google.
How do you find a product?
There is a platform called Muncheye where all the new upcoming product launches are listed.
So, go over to muncheye.com and check out all the products being launched approximately 7 days from now. Once you find them, take a closer look at the merchant.
You want to choose a vendor who has had a successful product in the market before and not a newbie vendor who has not been tried and tested.
Once you click on the product you would like to promote, you will be shown valuable information including the date of launch, vendor, affiliate network, and the Jv page or Clickbank page depending on the affiliate program.
Step #3: Gather information about the product
Now that you’ve chosen your product, you need to find out more information about it. The best place to get this information is from the vendor himself.
Most vendors put up a page where they list all the critical information an affiliate should know. This includes pricing, important benefits of the product, videos and much more.
The next step is to get access to the product. If you’re using Jvzoo, you need to get access from the vendor before you actually start to promote their products.
To request affiliate approval, contact the vendor from your jvzoo account and wait for their reply. If you’re given the go ahead, you can start promoting the product.
Step #4: Write a review
Like I said earlier, most people rely on reviews before purchasing a product. That’s why the next step is to prepare a great review for your affiliate product.
To do this, use the information you gathered from the vendor in step 3 to come up with a review of the product. If you feel that you need more information. Email the vendor and ask for it. He/she would be happy to provide it.
If you’re not sure about how to write a review, check out other reviews online just to give you an idea of the format.
Also, make sure you optimize the review for search engines so that when someone looks for a review of the product, yours is the first one they’ll see. SEO will also get you on the first page of Google.
Step #5: Publish the review
You really don’t need a website in order to publish something online.
You have free sites like Medium and WordPress (free version) where you can publish your review.
Both of these platforms have a premium version but that’s not what we’re interested in at this point.
To join Medium or WordPress simply create an account. You’ll be asked basic details like your name and email address.
Once you have an account, create a new post and paste the review you had written there.
Include affiliate links in various locations of the post so that if someone is interested in the product, they can access it directly by clicking on the link.
Just to be on the safe side, be sure to include an affiliate disclosure informing readers that the post contains affiliate links and when they click on them and make a purchase, you will be getting a commission at no extra cost to them.
This is a legal requirement that you should be aware of every time you’re promoting something online.
