So you want to make money online with affiliate marketing but you have no money, no website. No traffic and you don’t know where to start. Well, you are in luck because, in this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to start affiliate marketing without website.
I’m going to show you everything; the exact product as well as the exact traffic source that is free to use in this affiliate marketing without website guide.
Yes, you read that right, you wouldn’t need to spend any more on this, not a single penny! And that’s the biggest roadblock that most people have when trying to make money online with affiliate marketing.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Now in case you are new and do not know what is affiliate marketing.
When you promote a product that isn’t yours, you are essentially doing affiliate marketing. When you get a sale, you get a percentage of the sale as commission for your efforts
Now this is perhaps one of the best methods to make money online because it has stood the test of time. It’s proven and it flat out works.
It is a great way to get started because you don’t have to deal with support, something which I personally hate. You also don’t have to deal with customers or any aspects of the fulfilment. You literally just need to send traffic (which is visitors) to the product or service that you are promoting.
In this tutorial, I will show you how to start affiliate marketing without website.
Start Affiliate Marketing Without Website: Step 1
Now the first step to actually doing this is you need to go out and you need to find a product to promote. You need to have the right product to promote and if you don’t, it is going to be extremely hard for you to sell as an affiliate.
When I say “right” product, really I’m referring to a high converting product.
Earlier on, I promise you that I’m going to give you the exact product and the niche so that you can start affiliate marketing without website. You don’t have to go through a list of products on websites like Clickbank and figure out what is working and what isn’t.
The best niche for this strategy is going to be the woodworking niche.
Did that come as a surprise to you? Usually, when people talk about how to start affiliate marketing without website, they usually talk about software as well as make money online business opportunities.
Well there are a ton of money to be made in the woodworking niche! And I’m going to show you precisely which product to promote!
How awesome is that? 🙂
Now you want to head over to one of the most popular affiliate network Clickbank and get yourself an account. This is the affiliate marketing network that we are going to use.
Once you’re registered, go to the marketplace where all the products are listed. There is a woodworking product that is converting well and what I’m going to do is show you what this product is.
Now the reason I chose this product is because it have a good average sale. This means that you can get about $55 per sale each time and all you need is just 3-5 sales a day in order to make a couple of hundred dollars per day with affiliate marketing.
To start promoting Teds Woodworking, simply click on the promote button and you will be given your affiliate link.
And that’s how you get the product to promote. Pretty easy huh? What you need next is to get traffic so people see this affiliate product and hopefully purchase through your link.
Start Affiliate Marketing Without Website: Step 2
Obviously you’re going to need traffic so I’m going to talk about the best free traffic source for this product. Earlier on, I mention that you can start affiliate marketing without website, so for this strategy, we will be tapping on Instagram for free traffic.
Instagram has recently made certain changes to their algorithm and things are just blowing up right now. This means that you get more free exposure.
The first thing you want to do is to go to Instagram’s search bar and find other woodworking channels to model. There is really no need to reinvent the wheel or start a website with this method.
If you look at some of these woodworking Instagram profiles, you will find that many of them simply repost other people’s content and credit the photo/video to the owner. You don’t actually have to create your own content. You can go and share people’s content and build up a massive audience for your chosen niche.
Now you want to start an Instagram profile that has woodwork in the name, more importantly, you want to put a link (that redirects to your affiliate link) in the profile of your Instagram account.
Because Instagram does not like you when you direct link (put your affiliate link at your bio), you want to use a platform called link tree.
Sign up for the free version on the Link Tree website. There is really no need to get the paid version.
So what you want to do is to put your link tree link on your Instagram profile instead of your affiliate link.
There are two reasons why you want to do this.
- It cloaks your link (remember how I mentioned that Instagram hates affiliate links?). Well, your link tree link is NOT an affiliate link.
- Link Tree allows you to put in multiple links to promote. I have included a screenshot below for you to see how it looks.
Can you see that it is indeed possible to start affiliate marketing without website?
Start Affiliate Marketing Without Website: Step 3
Now that you have set up your profile and started posting videos/pictures to build up a following, its time to talk about how to grow your following.
This is the final step of this how to start affiliate marketing without website guide.
After all, you need an audience to see your post and affiliate links in order to make money.
The best thing you want to do right now is to be posting videos and IGTV. Posting images right now isn’t the way to go as I haven’t found much success with images.
You also want to use hashtags when you are posting content. Recently, with the changes in the Instagram algorithm, hashtags have been blowing up. So definitely make sure to use them to reach a wider audience.
Another great way to grow your following is to do Instagram stories. You will be surprised by how many followers you will gain just by posting stories.
Now, remember that you want to direct visitors to your Link Tree link NOT your affiliate link. Your link tree link is going to act as a bridge page and when they click the link on your bridge page, it will redirect them to Ted’s woodworking and if they purchase it, you are going to earn a commission.
It’s a very simple process. But the biggest thing you need to do is to line up the niche with the right traffic.
And this is how you start affiliate marketing without website.
