Are you looking to earn money through the Internet but you don't have enough experience or capital to start your own online business?

Among these choices, and shall I say the best, is affiliate marketing.


Affiliate marketing provides first time online marketers like you the opportunity to market something online even without having your own item to sell.


All you have to do is to register with an affiliate marketing program, which is typically owned by an online merchant or seller, and begin choosing the products you want to promote.


As an affiliate, you are paid by the merchant for your services on a commission basis, that is whenever you have directed a visitor to the merchant's website and the visitor really buys something.


Ending up being an affiliate in an affiliate marketing program is typically quick and simple, and for many affiliate programs, registering is likewise free.


Regardless of these and all the benefits being guaranteed by affiliate programs, many people are still reluctant to get into affiliate marketing.


Among the reasons that a great deal of individuals remain reluctant is the absence of a website to begin marketing affiliate items with.


This now leads us to the question of whether a website is required or needed in affiliate marketing or not. Lots of people state that a person can do affiliate marketing even without a website to start with.


Actually, one can start promoting and marketing affiliate items even without a site; and there exist a lot of ways on how this can be done. I share many tips and tricks on how to promote products without having your own website via my newsletter, so make sure to subscribe so you don't miss valuable information.


In truth, lots of affiliate marketing methods that bring success can exist without actually needing a website.


Amongst these strategies are email marketing, offline promotions, writing e-books, composing ezines and engaging in online discussions like online forums, chats, message boards and others.


  • Email Marketing


Email marketing, or maintaining e-mail lists, is really the most popular affiliate marketing technique that does not require the affiliate to keep a website.


In this affiliate marketing technique, what you generally do is maintain a list of the email advertisements of your prospective customers and offer them with articles that are pertinent with the affiliate items and programs you are promoting.


There are so many email marketing softwares to choose from. I personally use AWeber as I find it provides many functionalities that other email marketing softwares like MailChimp does not provide. 


  • Offline Promotion


There are many methods on how you can promote your affiliate items offline.


Amongst the common mediums used for such promos are categorized advertisements, pamphlets and leaflets.


Since classified advertisements in regulars frequently get a broader audience, categorized ads would typically work much better compared to the other two options.


  • Writing Free e-books


If you have a flair in writing, writing an e-book can be the best method for you to promote your affiliate items in the absence of a real site.


Just like in newsletters and emails, your readers would much better value your e-book if it is not too marketing but rather informative.


Make certain, nevertheless, to make the contents of your e-books relative to the real affiliate products you are promoting.


And similar to email marketing, you can simply place text ads or banners someplace near completion of your e-book that links to the merchant's site. I highly recommend using Sqribble to produce your e-Book! It'll save you time and effort, so that you can focus on other tasks.


  • Writing Free Ezines


If you do not have a website and yet desire to be an affiliate, you can well use ezines to promote your affiliate items or to insert links to your merchant's site.


Given that you have no website, you can just send your complimentary ezine articles to various sites that hosts ezines, like goarticles.com, ezinearticles.com and others.


  • Online discussions (Forums, Chats, Message Boards, etc).


With or without a website, you simply can't disregard online conversations because they are terrific locations for marketing your affiliate items.


In chats, online forums, message boards and conversation boards with subjects associated with your products, you can easily find people who might be interested with the products you are promoting.


With all these strategies, it may appear that a person really does not need to have a site to begin marketing his affiliate products and promoting his affiliate programs.


Well, starting in an affiliate program without a site may be easy, however getting effective in affiliate marketing without a website is another thing.


While one can actually get enormous success in affiliate marketing even without a site, it is an unusual circumstance that "newbies" like you can reach the same levels of success.


Having a website is not really a pre-requisite in participating in an affiliate program, unless otherwise the program owner would need you to have one.


While this is so, I would still advise that you have for yourself a website, if not now, then perhaps at a later time.


Having a website creates a lot of advantages in affiliate marketing.


For one, it offers you a location where you can artistically promote not only one of your affiliate items however all of your affiliate products. With a website, you can likewise advertise your affiliate items to a wider market.


Once again, having a website is not a requirement in affiliate marketing.


However with the advantages that a site can supply, I 'd rather have one for myself and make affiliate marketing a lot simpler for me.


Ending up being an affiliate in an affiliate marketing program is often quick and simple, and for the majority of affiliate programs, signing up is also free.


Email marketing, or keeping e-mail lists, is in fact the most popular affiliate marketing strategy that does not need the affiliate to preserve a site. 


If you do not have a site and yet desire to be an affiliate, you can well utilize ezines to promote your affiliate products or to place links to your merchant's website.


With all these methods, it may appear that one really does not need to have a website to start marketing his affiliate products and promoting his affiliate programs.


Well, beginning in an affiliate program without a website may be simple, but getting effective in affiliate marketing without a site is another thing.
