Yes you heard it write. To do affiliate marketing this is not necessary that someone has to be have website of their own.
If anyone is bit lazy!!! (no offence please) or not likely to set up own website or do not want to invest the money it needs to set up a website of her/his own still okay to promote others product and earn money.
Promoting something means bringing it forward. Targeting the right audience is what it needs. This is not necessary that it has to be via some else’s personal website.
Thus the question comes how to make others listen to you. Simply in layman language the key theory is speaking in a gathering place and making your voice loud enough so that you get heard.
Okay let me explain this –
There are many places where people gather. Free sources like YouTube, blog of other people, forums, etc. are the websites which makes connection with their own audience. Leaving a comment on those places is an easy way to make people see your comment and you can post your affiliate link there. It is very important to check if you are allowed to post a link in the comment or not. If not try another one and keep trying like this.
Affiliate promotion via posting comments in other’s blog or forum
For YouTube videos always try to post which has got higher viewers with good ranking.
For forums popular forums like warrior forum may be a good idea.
There are two key types of forums – free and paid one.
Paid ones are more targeted however free ones are also very effective to bring great result if you actively carry on doing this. Another issue needs to be in mind that in case of promoting affiliate offers via link forum like Warrior Forum does not like many promoting the same product using same link so you need to tweak the call for action sentence of group of words.
It is worth mention that Warrior Forum does not allow anyone to post affiliate link. Here is a long list of forums related to internet marketing http://biglonglists.com/118-internet-marketing-forums.
You can join their, read the regulations, create signature and keep on posting comments and bringing your own affiliate forward via signature.
There are various ways to highlight yourself in the forums- you can answer to someone else’s query, start an interesting question where other people will find it interesting to keep sharing their comments and this how the ball will roll on and one.
Email marketing is one of the ways to promote affiliate products directly to the receivers. Though it does not take any website to do this but to collect the list someone has to have some sort of web site or landing page. Landing page in layman language is the page where anyone who interested to be part of your regular update will put their contact details and little other basic info. There are some services where any internet marketer does not need to have any hosting, webpage or anything similar. The landing page company does this job for the customers. One of the very popular landing page is lead pages (the link is not affiliate; it is just to send you to the right place).
Facebook is already very useful for numerous types of business. Information business thus internet marketing business is one of the top ranking ones in this list. There are many places you can comment like – different fan pages, different groups.
Though again you have to keep in mind about the rules and regulation of those group if you can promote any affiliate or not. If you cannot promote any affiliate it is fine you can create your own fan page and then invite people to come to that site and from there you can promote your affiliate. From facebook many internet marketers are also building up their lists to make more money.
Writing review in different website
You can write small, medium or long eBooks on related topics and in different places of that book you can use your link so people can browse your products.
There are many ways you can promote your won book even without having any website of your own- you can contact anyone already promoting similar products or may be product creator of your affiliate. You can allow him/her to give-away your book as a free or sell it.
Also you can sell the book by yourself with a cheaper price from Ebay.

Cause, some of these mentions in their terms and condition that they keep the right to change links of any affiliate. So please read the small prints before you link your affiliates.
