So, do you need a website for affiliate marketing? You don’t have to have a website, certainly not. BUT having a website gives you more opportunities and organic traffic. Let’s look at some scenarios of having or not having a website and how this can affect your affiliate marketing empire.
Having no website
Ok, so you have a bunch of links from clickbank and JVZoo, you might also have some links from other affiliate networks. Now you need to promote them to a targeted audience. Let’s say you have social media followers, twitter followers and a few emails too. The main issue of having no website is that you don’t have a permanent place to promote your links. Yes you could use linktree or the bio of Instagram, but this is not really user friendly. You need a way to capture email address, contact information. This is something you can’t always get with social media.
Having a website
If you have a website, like wordpress. You can add in many features that allows you to record information. Gaining visitor information is critical. This is the only way that you can target and record visitors who are interested in what you are trying to sell or share information about.
So back to the question again, do you need a website? Well no you don’t, but if you do have one you will be able to record information, capture data and build an idea of who is interested in what you are saying.
