Do I Need a Website to Be a Successful Affiliate Marketer?
Whether you need a website or not to be a successful affiliate marketer is a very common question I get. The answer is yes and no.
I know not what you wanted to hear. It really depends on how serious you are about your business.
I say no because you can get started using free resources but you will need a web presence. This can be a blogger blog, a Squidoo Lens or similar free site.
Blogger is probably the best to use because it is the most flexible. I know people who just use free sites and can make a nice living. There is a risk though.
Blogger and the other free sites can and do delete sites and you have no recourse. Blogger is probably the most forgiving but if you are building a long term business you really need to have more control of your business.
If money is a problem this is a great way to start but as soon as you start making money you will want to get your own domain/s and hosting.
Having your own domain and web presence is always the best way. There are a lot of things that you can do with your own hosting that you can't do with the free options.
The most important thing is that it will not disappear as long as you pay your hosting.
It is easy to install a WordPress blog onto your site. It is flexible enough with the various plugins and themes available to be any type of site you may need.
So you do not have to have a website of your own but it is recommended. Either way you will need to have a web presence to be an effective affiliate marketer.
