Let me tell you proven ways to do Affiliate Marketing without a website or blog.
Alright, let’s dive in.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is a process of earning a commission by promoting other company’s products or services. They’ll pay you a piece of the profit for each sale you made.
How does it work?
- You’ll find an affiliate product and signup as an affiliate
- You’ll get a unique affiliate link.
- Promote your affiliate product
- If the customer made a sale from your link you’ll get paid.
Step 1: Choose An Affiliate Offer?
This is easy there are thousands of affiliate networks out there. But you’ve to be careful with choosing them.
Some networks don’t track accurately. Your effort going to be a waste.
Some of the best affiliate networks to join:
- Amazon Associates
- Share A Sale
- JV zoo
- eBay Affiliate program
- CJ Affiliate
You’ll get accepted by some of them.
Factors to consider while choosing an affiliate program:
- Does it solve any problem or fulfill a desire?
- Commission rate
- Duration of Cookie life
- Method of payment
- Are they Provide any marketing material?
- Do they have Affiliate support?
Tip: Select an Affiliate product that you really believed in (it’s perfect if you tried actually).
Step 2: Setup Simple Affiliate Funnel
Yes, you need to create a funnel. It increases conversions and can automate easily.
A funnel is a set of steps a visitor needs to go through before making a conversion.
A simple example is when you order anything on amazon this funnel you go through: Product page, Add to the cart page, then checkout page.
Do you get it?
Unlike Amazon, a simple affiliate funnel has an Opt-in page, Bridge page (Thank you page), and Affiliate offer. You need to create an Optin page and Bridge page. Affiliate offer is already created by an Affiliate company.
But, our goal is to do affiliate marketing without a website or a blog. Use Clickfunnels ($97/month) or GetResponse ($15/month). If you’re tight on a budget use the Getresponse account.
There are many tutorials to create an Optin page (AKA Landing page) and Bridge page on Getresponse here’s one:
The Goal of the opt-in page is to collect email address from the visitor
But, why visitors will give you an email address?
You need to offer something for free. It is called Lead Magnet. For example, I offered free training to get your email address in by blog.
The bridge page (Thank you page) goal is to build a relationship with the visitors and explaining about the Affiliate offer and how to get it.
The good thing with Getresponse is you can create landing pages and send automated emails. After you collect a lead (AKA Email address) you need to follow up with them.
Tip: Tell your story ( or someone’s story), What problem you face? How does this product (affiliate product) solve the problem?
This is a perfect way to do Affiliate Marketing without creating a website or a blog.
Step 3: Send Traffic to Landing Page
Alright, you at this point you’ve chosen an affiliate offers, set up affiliate funnel. At last, you need to send traffic means to send targeted people to your Landing page.
How do you do that?
Don’t worry I'm here for you.
The quickest way to get traffic is paying other websites where your potential customers are congregating.
Main platforms to advertise:
- Facebook Ads
- Google Ads
- Influencer Marketing
- Solo Ads
In the perfect world, You created an Ad people come to your funnel give their email address and buy the Affiliate product.
That’s not how it works in the real world. You need to test the best Creative, audience, and target quality, people.
Influencer marketing is promoting your product from key leaders in your targeted marketing. An influencer shows your product to his followers.
You need a budget for this. Again if you’re a beginner and on a tight budget. I listed free traffic strategies below.
There are hundreds of free traffic sources online. But the thing is you need to put consistent effort for a long time.
Spoiler Alert: Results won’t come as quickly as paid traffic.
Mainly used free traffic sources are:
You can promote affiliate products on your Facebook Page or Facebook Group. You need to do a lot of engagement to build a decent following. It can take 2 to 3 hours a day in the beginning.
Quora is one of the best question and answers website. Start by answering 1 question a day. It can get you a lot of free traffic.
YouTube is the best platform to get free traffic to your funnel or blog. Unlike Facebook and Instagram, YouTube will show you for years. YouTube is my go-to source for free traffic.
There are many platforms out there. Don’t try to post on all platforms at once. There is a famous quote “Jack of all trades, master of none”. Pick one platform master it. If it didn’t work for you then move on to another platform.
Alright, now you know how to do affiliate marketing without a website or a blog. You can send people directly to the affiliate link without collecting their information.
But it’s wrong very very wrong. Believe I’ve wasted so many hours by directly sending people to the affiliate offers. I got many clicks no sales. Follow up is most important in affiliate marketing.
If you want to follow up with your potential customer, you need their contact information. To create a simple affiliate funnel before sending them to an affiliate offer.
Hope you got the whole idea of doing affiliate marketing without a blog or a website.
