Affiliate Marketing Make Money Online No Website Needed!
For many new to making money online, the obstacle of designing and getting a website online is overwhelming. I know it overwhelmed me in the beginning. Many equate your website with your brick and mortar business. I can tell you, after being successful offline and online, that you can definitely profit online without a website.
Having a website can also be very profitable. However it is an asset, not a necessity. Making money online as an affiliate marketer is possible without a website. It’s true that having your own website, you could be more effective. I recommend you start without a website. Learn the basics of marketing and promotion, then if you feel a website will add to your profits, get one. At least at this time you will have a basic grasp of Internet Marketing, and will have the profits to pay for the building of your website.
Let’s define affiliate marketing, and how you profit from it. Affiliate marketing is a win win proposition. A business has a product to sell. They offer affiliates the ability to sell their product. They declare a percentage they will pay you to sell this product. I will give a simple example. Product X sells for $100 at Acme. They offer affiliates a 50 % commission to sell Product X. That means each time you sell Product X Acme will pay you $50.00. Not bad, by the way I recommend at least 50% commissions as well as working with products that make at least $20.00 per sale (that is a whole new article).
Now let me explain win win. The seller has many costs in getting paying customers. I will not go into detail here. So they use your efforts to get customers and pay you for your work. This is the simple explanation of the benefits to the product owner.
Now the good part, how do you benefit. No web page needed, no sales page needed, no delivery page needed, no thank you page needed, no pop up or pop under page needed, no follow up emails, no product support, no customer support. No delivery issues… and on and on. By the way after seeing the complexity of product delivery, not to mention getting the customer in the first place, can you see the benefits to affiliate marketing with no website? While they have their hands full, you have a focused simple task. Promote market and sell Product X.
Let’s wrap up. Is this the whole story? Of course not, this is an overview of the potential to profit from affiliate marketing. I will say this that most will not. It is still business. You need business skills. I was successful offline. I took those skills online. I am successful both online and offline. If you do not have “skills” get them. Seriously the Internet is overflowing with information on how to succeed. The problem is wading through the crap to find the golden goose. Be careful…. Or be broke! Google is good and bad, be cautious, be on guard, and protect yourself. Scams and BS are everywhere. So use common sense.
