    Do not need a website, as the article @HostNurse posted will explain you can use free blogging profiles or whatever. Web 2.0s and blah blah blah

    ANYTHING THAT YOU CAN POST CONTENT TO CAN BE USED TO PROMOTE AN AFFILIATE PRODUCT!

    Don't be spammy though. Create different campaigns and see how they go.

    Here is some more gold.

    People say black hat is dead right? Well, that's a bloggers mentality (no offense, you bloggers are so cute though) and they are right to some extent. BUT you can use black hat on trust and authority sites on your profiles and posts and whatever. So build profiles around the niche you are marketing (notice the word 'around' ) and use the niche you are marketing as a sub-niche.

    Basically don't focus your entire profile and everything on it toward the product.

    You need to focus on providing value to the prospect!

    Do your keyword analysis and make sure your on-page SEO is A-1.

    Now you can outsource all of that SEO you were once scared of. Still look for high quality SEO. Don't by 1,000,000 backlinks and think that they arent going to pick up on it. But if you send 50,000 backlinks tiered up, and blast the entire 4th tier with 1,000,000 then thats ok.

    It's easy to get traffic like this and if you have a popular product and add a couple of tweaks to this method, you can bank!

    Start building a niche list providing more value to your
    subscribers.. and once you had reached a considerable
    number in a specific list you can email them being an
    optin member many times your affiliate offers and get
    more sales..

    What you really need is a well grounded understanding of attracting targeted traffic to a sales funnel.

    The first phase would be to gain emails from targeted traffic you garner.
    The second step is to convert your captured emails into sales.

    Once you accomplish this ground floor skill set, then you can advance on to web asset based conversion: website banner, content, seo, and other more involved techniques.

    Getting the email has always been the bread and butter of the affiliate sales industry.

    Here are some basic steps:
    Choose the product you want to sell (it’d better be something you understand and know how go use)
    Start a website relevant to your niche (here the content is important. You want your site to come across as an authority in your niche)
    Find a corresponding affiliate program and join it

    Not many people talk about this in the affiliate marketing field, but MINDSET is super important.

    You need to get your head in the right place and KNOW that it's going to be hard work... you'll probably fail a TON of times before you succeed - but the most successful affiliate marketers I know, take their failed attempts, learn from them, and improve on the next attempt. Effort and Action is everything.
    You have to follow through.
    If you come across any type of affiliate that offers you free training, DO the training and then Implement the things they teach you.

    For me, these things are what has helped me start making money

    Proper market research, high-quality traffic generation of interested customers, persuasive content, excellent UX and a product that truly solves the needs of your customers, so you can keep the refund rate low.

    I second this. It took years before our first affiliate site really started to earn any appreciable money. It was really hard work, physically and mentally. Ultimately though, perseverance paid off.

    Given that it can take so long to succeed, I think this is why many affiliates fail. They think they can get rich quick and fail to plan properly. I would suggest having at least a year's worth of living expenses saved up to support ones self whilst trying to build up a profitable affiliate business. After that time you should have some sales to help supplement things. One may not be making the big bucks at this time, but hopefully one will be self-sustaining.

    Then just recycle as much money into the business as possible for another year or two to grow its potential. Then start reaping rewards personally. It definitely can work.

    This is so important. Sell something that you KNOW and ENJOY learning and reading about. Otherwise you will be stuck with slogging through the day's tasks hoping to earn some money to make it worthwhile. Where as if you already enjoy the activity, it will be much more natural and easy to put in those long hours necessary to succeed.

    Key factor with affiliate marketing is which products you promote. If you want to make it as an affiliate marketer, you need to learn to choose the products you promote wisely.

    Liliana,
    I would add one more piece of advise to the abovementioned ones.
    If you want to be a success in affiliate marketing - be ready to lose at the beginning, be ready to work hard. By work I mean curiosity and desire to build and check hypotheses.

    Good luck!

    Nice quote: be ready to lose at the beginning, be ready to work hard

    I think the main factor to get success in affiliate is traffic, traffic, traffic and targeted traffic. IMO
