If you are looking for information about free affiliate marketing websites, then I have something great to share with you! There are many things you can do to get started as an affiliate marketer.
How To Get Free Affiliate Marketing Websites
When a company accepts affiliates, the affiliate automatically gets a free website. The website is simply a personalized affiliate link that the company provides completely free of charge.
The link has a unique tracking code. This is so that the affiliate can get credit for any sales that may generate from a person that has used that affiliates link. The tracking codes provide information about whom (you the affiliate) sent the person (the customer) to the products page. If the customer purchases a product, then you (the affiliate) will earn a commission from the sale.
Some companies provide a 24 hour tracking code and some companies provide tracking for as long as 30 days or more.
If you wish to learn more about how these tracking codes benefit you, then I provide a great article titled “What Is Online Affiliate Marketing? Let Me Explain”.
Basically, you can get as many free affiliate websites as you like. That is of course if the programs that you apply for actually ACCEPT you as an affiliate.
That’s where things can get a bit complex.
How To Get Accepted As An Affiliate
Most companies have certain requirements that must be met before they will accept you as an affiliate.
Typical requirements to get free affiliate marketing websites are:
You must have a website already up and running.
Your website must have good, clean, legal content.
You must have people visiting your website. Anywhere from 1-100 or some companies even require as many as 50,000 unique visitors per month.
These are pretty stiff requirements for someone who is just starting out. Especially if you do not have a website or blog yet!
Take it from me, I have been there. I have been denied acceptance to many more programs than I have been accepted for.
It’s a known fact, if you are a beginner who is just trying to get started, it can be difficult locating good programs to promote as an affiliate marketer!
The Endless Loop Of Despair
This loop is a loop that many aspiring affiliate marketers encounter. It is a vicious loop, and a very hard circle to break free from!
You try to apply for affiliate programs, only to see that most companies have a REQUIRED field on the application where you must place the address of your website. The terms state you must have a website, therefore, you can’t even apply until you get one.
You buy a domain name, pay for web hosting, then do your very best to build your website. Once that is done, you spend hours struggling trying to figure things out, only to get a headache because this “website” business is more difficult than you imagined.
You have to learn how to take images, resize them, learn HTML programming to code the website, and then you have to learn how to master FTP where you can transfer your website files from your computer to your web hosts server.
Finally, 4 or 5 days later (or even weeks) you get your files transferred, only to discover that your website is not working! After contacting your web host, you are informed that you have not setup your DNS and all you know to do is scream “DNS WHAT???”.
Let Me Explain More
Your host kindly directs you to a help topic they have already put in place for customers like you, who have not a clue (do not be ashamed of this, we ALL did not have a clue at one time or another!). You of course set out to change your DNS and then wait the appropriate 24 to 48 hours for the changes to take place.
Now, by time your website is ready for public viewing, your web hosting bill is due! You have spent a whole month trying to get your website working, and now, you have to shell out more money too!
If you are serious about getting free affiliate marketing websites, then please keep reading. I have something fabulous to offer you.
You determine to make a go of this, so you pay the hosting bill, and set out to make enough affiliate income to cover the next hosting bill before it is due.
Now it’s time to apply to be an affiliate. You spend a full day applying for several affiliate programs, only to be denied by all of them because your site has had ZERO traffic. No one even knows it’s there!
This goes on and on and on. Day after day you apply for programs, only to get rejected time and time again.
Finally, you have been accepted into a few programs. Generally those that welcome newcomers like you (meaning they do not care much about how many site visitors you have) and so you begin to place banners all over your site.
By now, you have gotten excited, and can’t wait for the checks to start rolling in!
Yet The Loop Does Not End
You have your site up, it shows to everyone that sees it, you have banners galore all over it! This is the affiliate marketers DREAM!
You sit back and wait…..and wait…..and wait…….and wait some more.
Only to find, that you are not getting sales! By this time, google has indexed your site, it is showing in the search engines and you are receiving a few visitors per day (YAY!).
Another month has finally gone by, and your hosting bill is yet due again, and you have to decide…..do you pay it, or do you let despair win?
Do you throw in the towel, give up, and claim “This affiliate marketing junk does not work”!
Well, sadly, that is what most people do. They think that the money is going to roll in, with very little effort done on their part.
This is a horrible MYTH, it is not true, it is blatantly misleading. If anyone says that affiliate marketing is that easy, they are drastically exaggerating the truth.
If it were that easy, then everyone would quit their day jobs and become affiliate marketers!
