Are you thinking of how to make money with your mobile or your computer through the Internet but you do not have enough experience or capital to start your own online business?

You do not have to worry, for manyof online marketing options exist for you to start with. One of these options, is affiliate marketing which you know or you may not.

Affiliate marketing provides to you the first time online marketing giving you the chance to market something online even without having your own product to sell.

All you need to do is to sign up with an affiliate marketing program, which is usually owned by an online merchant or retailer, and start picking the products you want to promote. As an affiliator, you are paid by the merchant for your services on a commission based on what whenever you have directed as a visitor to the merchant's website and the visitor actually purchase from the site.

Becoming an affiliator in an affiliate marketing program is often quick and easy, and for most affiliate programs, signing up is also free. But despite all these and all the benefits being promised by affiliate programs, many people are still hesitant to get into affiliate marketing.

One of the reasons why many people remain hesitant is the lack of a website to start marketing his affiliate products with. This makes them to ask question ls about a website is required or necessary in affiliate marketing or not.

So much people say that, can spmeone do affiliate marketing even without a website to start with.

Actually, someone can really start promoting and marketing his products even without a website; and there is so many ways on how this can be done. In fact, many affiliate marketing strategies that leads to success can exist without actually needing a website. Among these strategies, you can see email marketing, offline promotions, writing e-books, writing ezines and engaging in online discussions like forums, chats, message boards and others.

  • Using Email Marketing

Using Email marketing, or maintaining email lists, is actually the most popular affiliate marketing strategy that does not require the affiliate to maintain a website. In this affiliate marketing strategy, what to do is to basically maintain a list of the email adverts of your prospective customers and provide them with articles that are relevant with the affiliate products and programs you are promoting. Articles that you provide with your contacts will not always be promotional, for many individuals will find such types of email annoying. Rather, it would be better if you provide them with something informative and just add small text adverts that link to your merchant's website.

  • Taking advantage of an Offline Promotion

There are many ways on how you can promote your affiliate products offline. Among the common medium used for such promotions are classified adverts, brochures and flyers. Classified adverts would generally work better compared to the other two because classified adverts in periodicals often get a wider audience.

  • Focusing on Writing Free e-books

If you have a knack in writing, writing an e-book can be the best way for you to promote your affiliate products in the absence of an actual website. Just like in emails and newsletters, your readers would better appreciate your e-book if it is not too promotional but rather informative. Be sure, however, to make the contents of your e-books relative to the actual affiliate products you are promoting. And just like in email marketing, you can also place text adverts or banners somewhere near the end of your e-book that links to the merchant's site.

  • Writing on Free Ezines

Ezines are publications or articles that aim to inform individuals about a particular topic. If you do not have a website and yet want to be an affiliator, you can well use ezines to promote your affiliate products or to insert links to your merchant's website.

If you have a website, your ezine article may actually work well as content for your website. But since you have no website, you can just submit your free ezine articles to various websites that hosts ezines, just like goarticles.com, ezinearticles.com and others.

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

With or without a website, you just can not ignore online discussions because they are great venues for marketing your affiliate products. In chats, forums, message boards and discussion boards with topics related to your products, you can easily find people who may be interested with the products you are promoting.

With all these strategies, it may appear that someone does not really need to have a website to start marketing his affiliate products and promoting his affiliate programs. Well, starting in an affiliate program without a website may be easy, but getting successful in affiliate marketing without a website is another thing. While some people can actually gain enormous success in affiliate marketing even without a website, it is a rare instance that "newbies" like you can reach the same levels of success.

Having a website is not really a pre-requisite in entering into an affiliate program, unless otherwise the program owner would require you to have one. But while this is so, I would still recommend that you have your own website, if not now, tmaybe later time. Having a website creates a lot of advantages in affiliate marketing. For individuals, it provides you a place where you can creatively promote not only one of your affiliate products but all of your affiliate products. With a website, you can also advertise your affiliate products to a wider market.

Again, having a website is not a requirement in affiliate marketing. But with the advantages of that website you can provide, I would rather have one for myself and make affiliate marketing a lot easier for myself.
