How to do affiliate marketing? No list from beginning
I am blogging from last 2 years ago. I have tried to for some affiliate marketing but no sale. I doubt my list is very small to generate a sale via email marketing. How can I do affiliate marketing that without building email list first? Where to start?

If you have not had sales for 2 years, your method does not work. Find a problem your readers have and market products that solve that problem. Then start split testing your marketing materials, sales pages, etc.

First off, pick a hot niche'. Bitcoin is super popular right now. Find an affiliate offer to promote within the niche. Create an opt-in page for the affiliate offer.
This way you build a list as you make sales.
The fastest traffic is paid traffic so you could buy solo ads or pay for advertising thru this site too.
You build a list and can make instant sales.

What about promoting your offers through ads. Learn adword of fb ads.. target specific category which you think will be converting for you.. try 3 -4 times till you achieve your desired goal.

Youtube should be one good consideration for you.
Try to find out what is trending on the world's #2 search engine (youtube) and find a product that fits.
The good thing about youtube is that they provide you the landing page with video, they have traffic, you can add your affiliate link in the description and they'll even list your video in Google search results to boot!
Your affiliate youtube video will be promoting your link 24/7 without worries. Then just go and make more hot and interesting videos.
This method is FREE and is effective if you do your homework right. Additionally, this method will lay the targeted traffic groundwork that will help you with any further development into other sales funnel methodologies you may employ in the future.
Great for email captures too!

Always know WHO your ideal clients/buyers are and figure out what THEIR NEEDS are pertaining to the product you are trying to sell. Be innovative in your solution so that your product seems new and fresh to the consumer, and your product solves their problem better and faster than any other.
What are they having the most difficulty with and how can YOU solve that for them in the most creative, strategic way? You want to be what they NEED to solve their problem. Your product should be the solution they are searching for on google. Add those problems to your blog and focus on their problems and how you/your product can solve that problem for them.
Once you figure out what the problem is, you've got what you want your marketing campaign to focus on.

Nemanja, if you use email marketing, its hard to make sales. Email marketing is a bit good for branding, but not for selling. The reason is as you don't know who you were emailing and you don't know whether or not they need the product you offered. PPC ads are much better than email marketing. Except, your list are those who opted-in to you.

Buyers want feedback and reviews on something before they buy. Most affiliate marketers fail because of lack of knowledge in the product they are trying to sell. Once you are familiar with the product then start promoting it.

If you have a blog, maybe you should start building your list using the blog. Have an option form on the side bar or as part of your articles post. All successful marketers have a list. You can either build it the Free way (eg-through your blog) or use paid traffic such as ads / facebook ads etc.
Hope this helps.

Create funnels and and most to email marketing. Sending people through a funnel allows you to slowly build up to a sale which is the first mistake that most newbie affiliate marketers make. Providing value through that funnel and email marketing allows you to fix someone's problem is the way to go.
Sure, we all want to make money through affiliate marketing, but being conservative from the beginning and tending to other's problems will naturally allow you to make money down the road...it all starts with building trust and then the sales will come.
Too many people make the mistake relying on one add, one landing page or one sales offer, and if that doesn't work then they give up. Selling is more then just selling, it's about building relationships first and the sale will come naturally.

If you decided to promote products via your blog, make sure you use post product reviews, tutorials, write posts comparing your products to other ones. It might help to collect emails list.

You can build your list organically or through paid traffic.
I think a good starting point is about 1000 people list. From here you can probably make a bit of money to at least keep you afloat.
Organic, I would suggest YouTube - talk about something useful and then perhaps give away a free ebook or cheatsheet that relates to whatever you spoke about in the video... you can create the lead magnet using something like canva (it's free)
Paid, it depends on what your affiliate offer is...but a lot of them are business opportunities...
There's some good solo providers here that will send you leads for around 35-40 cents! So you could get a 1000 person list for only like $300, which is pretty cheap.
Other way, obviously, would be through Google or Facebook ads... facebook I find you have to be super targetted to their interests... google is a bit easier, imo to get more general leads.
Hope that helps

In the other hand, if I want to focus on getting traffic from search engines for my affiliate programs, what is the easiest way? I like use both free and paid services for this if you have good ideas for it.

Many people don't realize this, but YouTube IS a search engine! It's the second biggest search engine in the world -- right behind the #1 which is Google (obviously).
Another myth, is that a lot people think that they cannot make videos for youtube...but if you have a computer or a mobile phone with a camera, you can! It doesn't have to be fancy in the beginning - just talk about stuff that is useful to people. In fact, you can even do a powerpoint presentation, save it as a video, and upload to YouTube. Of course, you will want to optimize your YouTube video for YouTube SEO ... but that's a whole different topic :P
So for example, the video I did about Website SEO on my youtube channel (URL removed - URLs not allowed by new members).
"Organic Traffic" just means, that the person found you by searching around the internet - not necessarily through a search ENGINE. But organic can also mean from social media posts, email traffic, etc.
Paid is obviously any of the above that you pay for.
