How to Be an Affiliate Marketer Without a Website (Part II)


Social Media

If you’ve got a clout on social media, you can use your influence by endorsing services or products that are of relevance to your followers and fans. Be it on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Pinterest, you can really make money from affiliate links without having a website. Be sure to disclose that you might be paid.

Paid Advertising

Provided the affiliate program’s rules permit it, paid advertising can be a good way to benefit from affiliate marketing without having a website.

From paid search ads on search engines to paid ads on Instagram and other places, there are lots of prospects to consider.

Video Marketing

Being the marketing medium that’s second-to-none in retention rates, videos are a winner. You don’t have to have a website to run a Vimeo or YouTube channel. You might always include affiliate links under the video itself.  Numerous top affiliates use this approach very successfully.

Offline Efforts

Yes, that’s correct! There are many ways you can monetize your offline efforts with affiliate marketing. Actually, affiliate marketing offers a lot of good technologies to bridge the online-offline gap, supporting more intricate marketing arrangements. One case would be using a distinct coupon code in a local newspaper. The code will be linked to your affiliate account and working just as a trackable “link”. Another instance would be using a toll-free phone number and plugging it into your audio content, regardless if it’s a radio commercial or podcast.

Retargeting is a method you can use to put an advertisement in front of that of an abandoned website.


Retargeting is a method of online marketing that supports getting an ad in front of website abandoners. There are many affiliates out there who (without marketing brands on a website of any kind) provide retargeting of brands’ site abandoners on a performance basis. These brands would pay them only when a conversion occurs.
