Internet Marketing Without a Website

by Rahimah Sultan

If you want to market online and don’t want to build and/or maintain a website, there are plenty of opportunities to earn money online as an affiliate marketer – no website or blog required. Following are 3 options.

 

Forums
Whatever your niche, you should interact with like-minded individuals on forums and blogs. In forums you can put your affiliate link in the signature line, and on blogs place it in the comments.

 

When starting out in forums, you must follow the rules which will be stated, and you must interact and add helpful content. Don’t start mindlessly posting your link. That is spamming and you will be blocked.

 

Some forums don’t allow affiliate links in the signature, especially if you’re a new member. So, you can purchase a domain for your affiliate link. That way when a visitor clicks on your domain it will redirect to your affiliate link. This makes you look very professional, and you can use the domain in other places as well so that people get to know you. The more active you are in the forum, the more likely people are to view your affiliate link/signature. Warrior Forum, Digital Point, WickedFire, and Marketing Checkpoint are affiliate marketing forums.

 

For an affordable domain provider I recommend GoDaddy or Namecheap.

 

Hub Pages
HubPages is a popular revenue-sharing site that’s a great option to try your hand at affiliate marketing in a subject with which you’re familiar. Users create ‘Hubs’ that are filled with useful content, videos, polls, and other category-focused information. You’ll have hundreds of topics to choose from, ranging from art and design to weather.

 

Besides flexibility in sharing, HubPages has affiliate programs built right into their platform. As a ‘Hubber,’ you can easily take part in the HubPages Amazon Program and their eBay Program. This means you can create hubs that are almost instantly set up to be monetized!

 

Since HubPages is built on user-generated content, the more helpful your content the better your chances of attracting an audience. As your audience grows, you’ll stand a greater chance of making money if you’re sharing genuinely helpful content that links to products readers will like.

 

Note: Some areas do not allow affiliating with Amazon, due to multiple tax rates within the state.

 

Social Media
Social media offers a free way to share your affiliate link. You can place the link in your Bio, then create valuable content for your followers, and encourage them to visit your Bio link.

 

You can do this on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, to name a few. But remember, since you don’t technically own your social media accounts, you must follow the rules of each site regarding affiliate links.

 

No matter where you decide to promote affiliate links, you should always provide valuable content first and foremost and only include affiliate links when it makes sense. It’s also a good idea to use affiliate links only occasionally. Not everything you create should be for the sole purpose of making a sale.

 

Of course there are plenty of opportunities to earn income online without building and/or maintaining a website, but forums, HubPages, and social media offer you a great place to start.

by Rahimah Sultan

Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. Just find a product you like, promote it to others and earn a part of the profit for each sale that you make.

 

An affiliate, also known as the publisher, can be a single individual or a company.

 

There are two ways to get started with affiliate marketing. You can become a merchant or an affiliate.

 

Although it’s not easy, you can become an affiliate program merchant and then make money by having affiliates sell your products. Following are the 4 steps to take.

 

1) You need a product idea.

 

Look at what products and services are already available and think about how you can make them better by having something that solves the problems with those products.

 

2) Find out if people want it.

 

Present your idea to people and ask them if they like it and will pay for it.

 

3) Create the product.

 

It can be online courses, ebooks or podcasts/videos.

 

4) Find affiliate program partners.

 

You have to find affiliates to promote your products (affiliate networks can help) who actually have an audience that is interested in what you have to sell. Clickbank and Amazon are examples of networks.

 

There are also 4 steps to take to become an online affiliate marketer.

 

1) Review products in your niche.

 

You can start by looking at the partners in step 4 for becoming a merchant.

 

2) Build an email list with your prospects on it.

 

3) Educate your audience.

 

You can use live webinars, blog posts and social media.

 

4) Grow your business with PPC advertising.

 

This is an overview of the specifics of affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is the basis for all other Internet marketing strategies. It originally involved lots of spamming, trademark infringement, false advertising and more. Now it is safer to do business online because of advanced scrutiny of terms and conditions by the merchants. As affiliate marketing opened up more opportunities, it also increased marketing competition.

 

Affiliate marketing was started on music-oriented websites. They placed a list of music albums on their site and paid others to put those links in their websites when a visitor bought an album through their site.

 

In affiliate marketing, the publisher incurs all the cost except that of initial setup and development of the program, which is incurred by the merchant.

I ran across an article titled 10 Steps to a Successful Affiliate Marketing Strategy that laid out what affiliate marketers needed to do to succeed in 2015 and beyond? The operative words are “and beyond.” The author states, “Many first-time affiliate marketers make the mistake of going one mile wide and one inch deep: trying to dominate forty niches in their first few years.” Marcus Taylor covers ten steps to a successful affiliate marketing strategy that include:
 
Using valuable content, building a brand that adds value to the customer, building a foundation of recurring revenue, and more.

 

He also says you should use more than one traffic source, have a mobile-friendly site, and find products that add value to the site’s readers and that also have the potential to increase the site’s revenue by an order of magnitude. In his “10 Steps to a Successful Affiliate Marketing Strategy” he points out the fact that affiliates need to be creative and outthink the competition.

Affiliate Marketing: Some Myths You Need To Know

by Rahimah Sultan

Are you a brand manager or a marketing director or the all-in-one head person of a start up? Maybe you are considering setting up an affiliate program for your business. There are some misconceptions about affiliate marketing—some myths you need to know.

 

One is that affiliate systems are quick and easy to manage. 2) You need to work in a very popular niche in order to make it work. 3) Affiliate marketing is an old strategy, 4) In order to have success your product has to be on as many sites as possible.

 

As far as affiliate systems being quick and easy to manage, there is a lot of competition. The problem of niches is solvable, affiliate marketing is far from being a thing of the past, and you do not need to have your products on a bazillion sites.

 

Steve Olenski debunks these myths in his article 4 Myths About Affiliate Marketing You Need To Know. There is a lot of competition in affiliate marketing, a lot of companies do not even bother because they think they have too small a market, link building is outdated, and the best thing about affiliate marketing is quality not quantity.

 

For an in-depth understanding of these points you can read the article here.
