Few days ago i have found link to affilorama from salehoo site somewhere here , i listened to few webiners and i think this is exactly what i want to do , affiliates .
But i have a question :
For example i want to promote just one product , at this time i don't have a website about it because i didn't decided which product to promote .
I visited Amazon.com and they do offer affiliation program but you have to have website first .
So question is : should i even try to sign to some affiliate sites , will they accept someone who didn't choose yet exactly what to promote and have no website running on internet?
What i mean some site have hundreds of different products and i would like to try with one from beginning.
How people are signing to affiliate sites with out the website running on internet .
I was sure i will become affiliate with Amazon first , find something i like and than build site about it .
Please explain what is the correct order signing with affiliate sites .
Btw , i am waiting for affiloramablueprint the new version which suppose to be lunch really soon , than in the mean time i was thinking to start with Amazon some simple one product website but i am not sure they will sign me in with out the site running on internet .
And this is not only Amazon , i checked here some of the company's with affiliate programs and all of them are asking the same information , url to the site running on internet .
I hope i didn't confuse anyone thanks Eva

If you're promoting products, you should go ahead and set up at least a basic website, even if you have not yet decided what to promote. In most cases, companies are not screening the sites out; however, if you think about it, this is not an unreasonable question for them to be asking.

Domains and hosting have reached the point where they are such trivial expenses that there's no real price barrier to setting up a site -- only time and focus. Figure out a general niche that appeals to you and has products available to promote, set up a very basic blog or mini site with info about the products, apply to affiliate programs, add real content. Nothing to it, really.

Hi Eva,

Having your own site to promote the affiliate products is ideal but if you are still new and trying to get the hang of the whole affiliate marketing business, then this Link hidden: Login to view will certainly help you since it lists various ways you can promote your affiliate link even if you do NOT have a site!

Most affiliate products are sold via Link hidden: Login to view so you may want to visit ClickBank and register.

In the meantime, if you haven't I encourage you to join Link hidden: Login to view to help you learn more about affiliate marketing. You can join for FREE :)

All the best!

Hi Richelle , yes i have joined affilorama and i love it i am waiting for the new version of affiloblueprint, since the last one is not available anymore for new members .
Thank you for the link i am going to take a look right now , i study affilorama's webiners and free lessons every evening i am sure affiloblueprint will help a lot , but i have to wait till they launch it , this is why i have some questions right now .
I already have website on the internet so i am familiar with building , hosting and domain names , i have no problems put website together i did quite few for other people but mostly about their animals .
The moment i have sign up with Salehoo last year i was researching a lot what i want to do and affiliate is the best choice for me , i think i will feel the most comfortable with doing this .
Thanks for all the help i am getting here you guys are the Best , thanks Eva
