Four Ways To Get Started In
Affiliate Marketing (With Or Without A Website Of Your Own)...
I often get asked if it's possible to get started and actually make money as
an affiliate marketer without having a website.
You sure can, and in today's article we'll look at 4 ways you can get started
today without a website of your own, or 4 additional marketing strategies you
can use in addition to promoting products from your website to
increase your affiliate profits.
Let's get started...
Your own website, so the story goes, is your headquarters in cyberspace. It’s your very own digital store where you
can lead your potential customers and where you offer your products and services
Though it’s true that having your own website can be a huge benefit in achieving success
on the Internet, a website is not essential to online success, particularly when
it comes to affiliate marketing.
Yes, you can make a living online as an affiliate, even if you do not have the benefit of your own website!
How is this possible? How can this be done?
Read on as we discuss alternative strategies that will allow you to make the most
of your affiliate marketing campaigns without having to create your own website,
at least while you are starting out.
As you have seen, you can earn some fairly generous commissions for every successful sale
you manage to refer to one of our coaching programs.
Your task is merely to pre-sell our courses and get the prospect to click
through to our website. The sales page, our follow up systems, and our after sales services will
take care of everything else.
Again, all you have to do is refer people to us and we take care of all the rest. Marketing our courses without the benefit of a website means you have to
carefully promote your affiliate link in a variety of ways.
This can be done using the following techniques:
Articles are a great way of generating both short term and long term traffic
through your affiliate link to our website. This one strategy alone could earn
you a fortune if applied correctly...
Article directories allow you a to use a 'resource box' at the end of your submission, where you
can make an offer to your readers and encourage them to visit any link of your
Now, you have to remember that most article directories do not allow affiliate links in the
body of the article itself, but some do allow affiliate links in the resource box.
If you are going to use this strategy, confirm with the directory that it's
OK to put your affiliate link in the resource box. However, I have a warning for
Warning: In most cases, even if affiliate
links are allowed by the directory, readers of your
article will not knowingly click on a link that is obviously going to generate
you a potential commission. It's human nature I guess, so you have to
allow for this.
Something else to consider is that other publishers who source content from
the article directories won't want to distribute your article if it contains
obvious affiliate links either (or they may use it, but they could change the
affiliate link to their own), so you need to disguise the fact that it's an
affiliate link somehow.
You can do this with link cloaking software, or if you don't currently have a
website of your own and you would like to seriously promote our
coaching products using article marketing (by seriously I mean you are going to
write and submit several articles, not just one or two), let me know and I'll
create your own special landing page on our website where you can
direct people from your articles.
This will give you a direct link to our website that's already encoded with
your affiliate link. You can promote that link anywhere you like and nobody will
ever know it's an affiliate link.
That way the article directories will be happy to accept your articles for
publication and every reader who clicks through to our site will be branded with
your affiliate 'cookie'.
If they eventually purchase one of our products, you'll be credited with the
Again, if you are going to actively promote our courses using
Forums Marketing and you want to disguise your affiliate link (which you
should), let me know and I'll create a landing page on our website for you so
nobody knows you are promoting an affiliate link in your forum posts.
Create A Free
By setting up a free Blog at Blogger.com,
you can begin marketing our courses as soon as today. Blogger.com hosts your
Blog for you and all you have to do is create an account and start
As long as you have time to post regularly (every day is best,
even twice a day if you can) you will start to generate some traffic fairly
quickly and by including your affiliate link at the end of your posts you could
drive some highly targeted visitors to our website.
The more visitors you send us, the more you'll earn...and search
engines just LOVE Blogs. They rank them well when they are focused on a topic

By doing some research and then Blogging regularly you could
become a well known expert in the trading market and start to brand yourself with
your blog. The sky really is the limit here...
Advertise In Ezines
This may cost you some cash (but marketing after all is merely a cost of
doing business) as most Ezines these days charge for advertising space. Nonetheless, you could expose your affiliate
link to a large number of highly targeted prospects using this approach.
Imagine if the Ezine your ad goes into is sent out to a list of 10,000 people. You’d immediately be able to reach
up to 10,000 quality leads with one advertisement.
Of course, many list members will not open the email message containing your
advertisement (you know how it is these days, we all get so many emails, who's
got time to read them all) so you may only have 10% to 30% of the total list who
will actually see your ad, but if it's a highly targeted Ezine, you could do
very well with this strategy.
One of the best places to find targeted ezines is to do a Google search for "futures trading newsletter",
"emini trading newsletter" or "futures trading ezine" and
you'll find plenty more.
Again, you don’t need a website. Simply use your affiliate link in your
ads (after disguising it of course).
Not having your own website is not going to be a bar to online success. All you
need to do is take action, test and try things, and eventually you will
The first three strategies here can be accomplished without spending a single
cent, while the third one will cost you a few dollars to test.
If you do not have the financial resources to register a domain or to subscribe to a web hosting service, you
can still achieve success with affiliate marketing.
Promoting your affiliate links can be
done without any cost if you have a few hours to visit forums and the time and
ability to write and distribute your articles.
And of course if you do have a website, you can use these 4 strategies to
drive many more visitors to your own site and then you can send them on to us.

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.
ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADE PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF THE HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
