    The right time is now! Yes you need a blog or a website of your own. You need to start building a list. Get emails and follow up with your visitors. Create an alliance. Create relationships. Build trust. These people will buy from your link u and make you money online. That is how it works.

    The best time to start affiliate making is now. Its one easy money making machine many people dont know about. Imagine making as much as 1500$ per day depending on how hard you work. The best thing I can tell you is to learn more about affiliate marketing from a mentor. This is the best I can show you. Learn from them, they are the best in the game. See link on my bio

    Hi,
    The sooner the better, today there are some many free resources that there is simply no excuse not to start.
    Set up a website, blog, youtube channel and start creating content while at the same time start building your social media presence in twitter, facebook, linkedin. Look at new and innovative affiliate programs, for example a SaaS affiliate program as they pay high and recurrent commissions.

    Good Luck!

    If you are really keen on starting an affiliate marketing program to start earning substantial income, the best time to start is now.

    There are various things you can do in order for you to be successful as an affiliate marketer, and here they are:
    1. Research on the appropriate niche you will like to join;
    2. Start by picking up a product of your interest;
    3. Start promoting the product through various marketing strategies

    On you last question - do you need a website?

    With this question, it totally depend on you. You may decide to have your own website where you list or write about the products you are promoting, or you may just promote through different platforms.
    Most affiliates I know that do not have a website promotes there affiliate products through the use of social media platforms. Nevertheless, I will recommend you have your own website. With your site, you have various advantages.

    I hope that I am able to shed more light on this for you.

    Good luck!

    The time is anytime you like to start but I do think you can start right away.

    To be successful in affiliate marketing, you have to be consistence in your marketing efforts.

    First you have to survey for affiliate networks such as Clickbank, JVZoo, Warriors+ and some of the CPA Networks such as Offervault, ODigger etc, to search for offers to promote.

    Second, it would be better to have own website OR you can use those free websites such as WIX, Blogspot etc to promote your affiliate products or services. But, it would be better to get own domain name and start own site where you can add valuable contents and multiple affiliate products or services to your site to maximize your affiliate commission.

    Some of the Social Media Sites such as Facebook for example, it would not let you promote affiliate product/s with the direct links. What is recommended is for you to promote affiliate links and services on Facebook by redirect the offers to one of your website's page. In this page, you can write some articles and then add the affiliate links so that the readers can click these links and direct them to the actual offers.


    To succeed in promoting affiliate products or services, you have to be consistent in creating valuable contents and then link to the offers. Videos submission to Youtube also will help you to get more traffic to your offers.

    Hope this will help in some ways...


    Good luck .

    No you don't need a website for affiliate marketing and there is no specific time for it. For Affiliate marketing you should create a account over Amazon and start it on. It's working is quite simple you paste your link where you can target audience according to your product and earn money.

    if you are running a blog then first you have to generate enough targeted readers then start offering product to them.
    if you are not running a blog then make a website and start promoting it.

    The ideal time is today! You require a site of your site or a website. You want to get started building an inventory. Get emails and follow along with your customers. Produce an alliance. Create connections. Build confidence. These individuals also make you and will purchase money on the web. That's the way it works.

    I think the best decision is not to hesitate too much and just start participating in affiliate programs. You may create your own website/blog and put affiliate links in appropriate places in your articles, or you may just place banner ads. I think it's not 100% necessary to have your own website in order to become an affiliate. You may place affiliate links and refer clients via them. But, if you have your own website you can earn more easily thanks to the banner ads.

    Your in luck everyone has to die some time so anytime is a great time to start people are keeling over waiting for you to take over. Could say it was a good time to start 20 years ago but all those mlm sites are gone. So start some fresh concept.

    This is it. You’re going to finally take the plunge into the lucrative waters of affiliate marketing. Maybe you’ve been thinking about it for a while, but now’s really the best time to dive in. Here are 4 reasons why right now is the time to begin your affiliate marketing journey.

    1. Affiliate Marketing’s Annual Growth

    According to a study by Rakuten and Forrester Consulting, affiliate marketing spend in the US shows a compound annual growth of 10%, growing to over $6.8 billion by 2020.

    Name:  1*dsLLhmp3xpcy-cC-hzLM8w.png

    To put this growth into perspective, affiliate marketing currently accounts for about 16% of e-commerce sales. This is on par with email marketing and more than both social commerce and display advertising. And of the four mentioned, affiliate marketing seems to have the brightest outlook in terms of growth over the next few years.

    This means that if your company is investing in email or display ads, but neglecting affiliate marketing, you will be left behind by your competitors as the numbers show that it’s an increasingly popular venue for sales. And the reason businesses are flocking to it is because it works.

    2. Increasing Amount of Publisher Revenue

    The mark of a good advertising program is how willing people/platforms are to actually advertise your business. If affiliate marketing didn’t work for the publishers on the other end, revenues for both them and the merchants (you) would dry up.

    But that’s not the case at all.

    According to a recent survey from VigLink, publishers say that affiliate marketing is a close second to Google AdSense as the best source of generating revenue.

    As the image above shows, it’s also much preferred over display advertising these days. A big reason for this is due to the rise of ad-blocking technology reaching 40% of desktops/laptops. Affiliate marketing, especially with the use of conversion triggers, sees much less impact from ad blockers.

    The survey also shows an interesting take on how publishers feel about affiliate marketing: 64% reported “that their affiliate marketing revenue expectations were not met,” but 77% “acknowledged that revenue generated from affiliate marketing programs from 2015 to 2016 increased or stayed consistent.” Translation? Even when it’s working and working well, publishers are a hard group to please.

    3. Finding Influencers is Easier than Ever

    Remember when everyone watched the same three TV shows? Back when Friends was on the air, you could ask any stranger about the last episode, and he/she had probably seen it. Today, entertainment has been fragmented beyond reason, and this goes for just about everything people have an interest in. And that’s good for affiliate marketing.

    Before the fragmentation, affiliate marketing was more of a shotgun approach. If you sell luxury watches, maybe a group of sites that generally cater to the wealthy is where you’d advertise. But today, there’s a subreddit for that. And an Instagram account. And a Twitter hashtag. Now affiliate marketing is surgical.

    Of course there’s a subreddit of 15k+ fidget spinner enthusiasts.

    It’s easier than ever before to find the specific group of influencers and enthusiasts that would be perfect publishers for your business. Is it easy to get them to become your publishers? Sometimes, but generally, it takes work. Still, the process of actually finding these influencers or groups today is as simple as can be, and that’s a huge leg up for modern affiliate marketers.

    4. Start Now, Grow Tomorrow

    “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” — Chinese Proverb

    Unlike, say, Google AdWords, you can’t just throw money at affiliate marketing and expect it to work overnight. It takes time to get publishers up to speed, test out incentives, raise or lower commissions, and above all, grow the relationships that are the life-blood of this process.

    A happy publisher is an effective publisher.

    The sooner you get started, the larger and more efficient your publisher network will become. According to the survey above, “91% of merchants plan to increase or keep their affiliate marketing budgets the same in the future.” To be clear, that means 9 out of 10 merchants are seeing continued success with affiliate marketing with no plans to slow down. In this business, that’s about a sure a bet you’ll ever make. And waiting on launching your own program is just leaving money on the table.
