A frequently asked question in the affiliate industry is whether you can perform affiliate marketing without using a website?
The short answer is yes; however, we at Revolution Force want to take the answer a little further.
This week’s blog post is dedicated to explaining how to be an affiliate marketer without using a website.
1. Media Buying
Our top choice for affiliate marketing without using a website is media buying! It’s one of the most lucrative ways to make money in affiliate marketing. It is no easy task and requires a lot of trial and error, but once you master the skill, it can generate millions of dollars.
Media buying often referred to as “buying traffic” involves purchasing advertising spots or other kinds of exposure on a website or network that is owned by someone else
If you’re just starting out, we recommend buying CPC (cost per click) traffic first. It requires a smaller budget and cap handling can be easily managed. Once you feel more comfortable with media buying, you can move onto larger budgets and buy CPM (cost per thousand) traffic.
2. Email Marketing
We will admit, email marketing is easier when you own a site to link to, but not having a site doesn’t mean you won’t make a decent profit. In fact, it’s one of the most sustainable ways to make a living in affiliate marketing.
To begin email marketing, you’ll first need to build a mailing list. You can do this by creating a signup offer and posting it on different social media platforms. If you’d like to speed up the process and get more eyes on your signup offer, then you may consider doing a paid social media ad.
Once you have a big enough list, it’s time to start testing campaigns. With the right mailing list you can generate multiple conversions with different campaigns using the same exact traffic.
3. Video Marketing
Videos are popping up all over social media, so why not use them for affiliate marketing? It’s an easy way to promote affiliate products and services without requiring a website. All you need is a following or subscribers. Once you generate a big enough following it’s easy to attach affiliate links below in comments or the video.
If you really want to use video marketing to your benefit, you can tie in email marketing to your subscribers. Once they subscribe to your channel, you can build an email list and email them offers related to the videos they watch.
4. Social Media
If you have some clout on social media, then promoting products or services relevant to your followers will not require the use of a website and is pretty simple to do. We recommend Facebook and Instagram to promote any Nutra, Finance, or Game offer.
BUT if you plan to run adult offers, social media may be the trickiest marketing of them all without using a website. Why? Because of the strict terms and conditions. If you are willing to get crafty…it is still possible to run adult. You’ll just need to be selective about which platforms you promote on.
We recommend using SnapChat or Instagram for adult offers. The popularity that has grown from posting selfies and videos make these platforms our top suggestions for adult offers. Although Twitter and Facebook are big players in the social media game, they are out of the question with adult offers. Facebook and Twitter are quick to ban content featuring any adult content.
