How To Make Money Online
Without A Website
by: Melanie Mendelson
You don't need to have a website to make money on the Internet. Here is
a proven strategy to make money online without a website:
Step 1: Find Affiliate Product
Find a product to promote where you make good commission on each sale.
Generally, you will get the biggest commissions on digital products.
Digital products are defined as something that is downloaded directly to a
customer's computer after purchasing, like electronic books or software.
Since there is no extra cost per unit, no inventory and no shipping,
the commissions are much greater than on regular "physical" goods. The
most common commission on digital products is 50%. The best place to find
such products is Clickbank.com.
Sign up as a reseller (also called affiliate) for a product that looks
the most appealing to you. After you sign up, you will get a unique
affiliate link where you need to send people to purchase the product.
Your affiliate link will have a special code that will tell the product
owner that it's you who referred the customer. The affiliate link code
will allow your commissions to be tracked correctly and assigned to you.
Step 2: Get Domain Name
Get a domain name to redirect to your affiliate link. A domain name is
a .COM name (like
yourproduct.com). You can get it for under $9 at
GoDaddy.com will allow you
to redirect your domain name to your affiliate link at no extra cost.
So when someone types in your .COM domain in their browser, it will go
to your affiliate link. The visitor will see the website with the product
you promote, and the commissions will be tracked correctly.
The reason why you need a domain name is that it's memorable and it
makes you look more trustworthy. Affiliate links tend to be too long and
arouse suspicion. For example, most people would rather click on the link
A domain name will make your affiliate link look like it's your own
website. So basically, you will have a product to promote and a website to
send people to and get commissions - without really having your own
Step 3: Drive Traffic
In order to make sales, you need to get visitors to your domain name
(which will forward them to the website of the product that you resell).
You can pay for advertising and hope that your profit will be greater than
advertising cost, or you can use free ways to generate traffic.
The most effective way to get free targeted visitors to your domain
name is by writing and submitting articles. You can write short articles
on the topic related to the product that you promote. At the end of the
article, you include your author bio and your domain name link.
You will then submit your articles to various websites, and allow them
to publish your articles as long as your link is included. Your articles
will get published in many places on the Internet, and will be advertising
your affiliate link at no cost to you whatsoever. People will read your
articles, like what you have to say and click on your domain name link
ready to buy.
Once you start getting regular sales from your articles, you can go
back to step 1 and find another product to promote using this strategy.
After a while, you will build up a nice source of Internet income -
without even having a website.
