There are a few sites you can join without a website. The thing to do is to find these sites, join them, find the products you want to promote, and then advertise or put your link on sites that allow you to do so.
We will look at what programs allow you to join without a website and some links and information to get you started. But first, we need to go over the basics for the beginning affiliate marketers.
What Is Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate Marketing is a 4 part system to make money online.
- You, the affiliate marketer- promote products sold by someone else like Amazon, Walmart, ClickBank, or any company that sells digital or physical products. You are trading with the company, and you are free advertising for them. In return, you make a percentage commission. Example: I am interested in mattresses, so I put different mattresses on the internet, and I link to the place that sells these mattresses.
- The customer or consumer-The consumer goes to the internet looking for mattresses and finds your promotion linked to the company. They click on one. It takes them to the site that sells the mattress, and they place an order.
- You make money– You make a percentage of 1%-75% for each sale according to the companies agreement.
- Everyone is happy -The customer is happy because you solved their problem. You are happy because you made money.
What Is An Affiliate Program?
An affiliate program is formed around an agreement between you and the developer of a program or product, such as Amazon, Nike and Adidas are examples of products. In addition, software, plugins, and themes are examples of programs. There are millions of companies in the world that have millions of affiliate programs.
Companies set up an affiliate program on their site or through a network that you can join; in addition, they give you advertising banners, information and let you know what percentage of a commission their program will pay for a sale. Affiliate programs have many rules and regulations, but all are spelled out clearly in the fine print.
To find these affiliate programs, you can go to your favorite search engine and put in the term (we will use mattresses as an example) “mattress affiliate program.” It will pull up all of the affiliate programs for different brands of mattresses. But not all of these affiliate programs allow you to join without a website.
There are a few sites you can join and promote their products without a website. Some of these are:

ShareASale is a company that manages many different companies and their affiliate program. Some of the companies allow you to join them without a website. To get started, you will need to join ShareASale as an affiliate marketer. You will be in the ShareASale affiliate program.
When you apply to ShareASale, it is necessary to enter personal information, your website or social media URL, and then an optional area stating your method of promotion and your marketing plan. I suggest you take the time to fill out the optional area in detail.
After you join ShareASale, you can look for different companies that match your needs. Read the fine print requirements of each one to see if you can join their affiliate programs without a website. If you are allowed to join, you will need to apply for that company within the ShareASale platform. Each program also has an “optional” area to fill out. I highly recommend you fill this information in to help your chances of acceptance.
To apply without a website you can use your Facebook account URL instead of a website URL.
I am an affiliate marketer, and I prefer to use a website to promote my products. But we are all different and use different methods to make money. Although the methods are different, they are basically the same. Each one requires effort and knowledge to make it work.
