Affiliate marketers that make money without a website are called bum marketers. Instead of a website they put their links in a blog. This is why you should never let an expert tell you that you need to spend a lot of money on a website, especially if it is an expensive turnkey one. All you really need is a blogging tool. If you intend to send your blog articles out to article directories you may need a web page with links as most will allow you to redirect customers to a web page with an index of affiliate links but not include links in the articles. If you have a web blog you can have all of the affiliate links in an article that you want.
The great thing about a blog is that it is just another web page. However unlike the pages of an ordinary web page, blogs are set up on templates. There is no coding, graphics and you can download your material quickly right onto the site or simply write your SEO copy directly into the template. You can update your material as often as you like and unlike static pages on a website, the spider engines are attracted to the blogs because new bytes of information are added to it every day.
Of course the other benefit is that blogs are so simple and inexpensive to set up. All you really need is a computer with access to the Internet and a free blogging template. The only cost to you ultimately is your time spent writing material and adding your affiliate links. This is time well spent because if you do this right and are very clever about merging your search engine optimization techniques with your charming and informative blog entry you can make a lot of money!
