Most affiliate experts suggest new affiliate marketers to build their own list, to set up a website to be used as landing page, get professional mailing list graphic design on the website then provide useful contents. But you have to pay for all of that! If you are new affiliate marketers and you don't have money to buy auto responder account, to buy your own domain name or to buy your own web hosting account, here are some helpful tips to start your affiliate journey.
1. Setup a web presence using blogs as your landing page. I am sure you heard about Blogger.com, WordPress.com. They are free mailing list web blogs, highly customizable, highly search engine friendly and powerful. Open up an account. Insert 20-30 articles. Below article section, insert your affiliate links. Use anchor text (or known as text ads) because most web users will not click on banner ads or flashy image ads.
They will only see it. 2. Setup a web presence using free website builder. If you don't want to use Blogger.com or WordPress.com simply because you hate to write article, go to free website provider such as Weebly.com or Google Sites. These mailing list two are the best because they give you freedom to use any professional design with no payment at all. Insert an article with 400-600 words explaining the benefits of the product you are promoting.
