Now to answer your question, How to do Affiliate Marketing without a website?
The answer to your question is “YES”. Go to Clickbank, which is one of the largest and most popular platforms that connects product sellers and affiliate marketers, and there are countless resources and membership programs that are ready to teach you how to make the best of Clickbank as both an affiliate and vendor.
Select a nice affiliate product from Clickbank’s Marketplace category. The two most common categories are e-commerce / e-business and the health niche. Make sure to select a nice affiliate product by ensuring it has a gravity of anywhere between 60–80 and with recurring billing. Then grab the affiliate link and ensure to use a tracking code to monitor your affiliate product traffic. This I would term as direct linking.
Direct linking means that you can join affiliate programs, create ads for their products, and send click-throughs directly to the merchant’s site. There’s no need to build an intermediary site or use your own site to direct traffic. When your click-throughs convert, you get a commission.
Now go to Bing Ads and start creating a campaign. Unlike Google Adwords, the cost per keyword is very low and you can get a lot of impressions and clicks for a specific keyword niche with a low keyword bid value.
If you want your affiliate ads to be seen, here’s what you have to do –
Step 1: Start with a big, broad market
Choose a broad market where there’s a lot of searching going on. You want to get as many eyeballs as possible.
Step 2: Do some keyword research
Don’t build your ads on broad, untargeted keywords, though. The competition for those will be fierce–and expensive. Your objective here is to find neglected, low-cost keywords within a broad, high-traffic market–and that’s why it really helps to have keyword research experience.
The free Google AdWords Keyword Tool is also a quick and handy way of getting ideas for keywords with high search volume and low cost per click; just keep in mind that you can’t use this strategy with Google.
Step 3: Write a PPC ad that drives buyers to the affiliate merchant’s site
Take a good look at the landing page your ad is pointing at and make your ad directly relevant to it. Your ad must:
👉address the specific problem you’ve identified.
👉include the keyword you’ve bid on, preferably more than once.
👉reflect the keywords of the landing page.
👉highlight a benefit of the product.
👉include a strong call to action.
Promoting Affiliate Programs with Video Marketing
Video marketing or YouTube marketing is the future. You can still do affiliate marketing even without a website.
Although blogs or websites still hold their own when it comes to affiliate marketing, video marketing combined with email marketing is a powerful combination.
If you don’t have a website, most affiliate networks require a YouTube channel to get approved. Please click here for sample of my Youtube channel.
👉Find a Niche: Look for a niche in which you know there’s a need for people looking for solutions. Most importantly, a niche wherein you have a product that you can promote to an affiliate network.
👉Keywords: After deciding on a niche, look at Google AdWords Keyword Tool and check the keywords you want to rank on it. Use these for your videos—the way the blogs write on their article bodies, but on your video, attach it on your video description box.
👉Make your Video: Create your videos. It doesn’t have to be fancy. You don’t have to appear on it. You can create videos via PowerPoint slides. Make it eye catching!
👉Promote your Videos: After creation of video, now comes the promotion part. You can promote your affiliate link on your free e-book that you give on your video. Place the link of your freebie offer on your description box. Promote it via email marketing to get subscribers by getting their emails and send them to your affiliate link. This is where the money comes in because if they click on your affiliate link and buy, you get a commission!
