Many methods are available that can be used to promote your affiliate marketing business, without having to set up a website.

Having your own website is obviously the better option, however it is not absolutely necessary to conduct your business.

Article marketing, email marketing, joining online discussion groups, and utilizing forums, are only a few of the strategies that can be used to promote your affiliate product.

Email marketing is an effective means of promoting your affiliate links without a website, and is also the most popular method.

People reading your email promotions can click your affiliate link and go directly to the merchant’s website landing page to purchase the product or service that you are promoting.

When promoting your affiliate link, make your emails brief and interesting.

Use online chat forums to make new contacts and expand your email contact list.

To be truly effective, you need to have a substantial list of at least a few hundred contacts.

To get the best results, make sure that your list is updated regularly, and that all “bounced” or dead addresses are deleted.

Remember not to spam your contacts.  Never send emails to anyone who does not want to receive them, or who don’t know who you are.  Recipients will just block your emails or worse.

Some marketers achieve good results using classified ads or fliers. Online and off line classifieds provide the best exposure for promoting affiliate products.

When beginning affiliate marketers ask if a website is necessary, the best answer is that it is a good idea, but not essential.   Alternate methods can be, and are successfully used by newbies, on a regular basis.
