5 places you can share affiliate links (besides a website)

One of the questions I get a lot is, "Do you have to have a website to be an affiliate marketer?"

The short answer is no, you don't. Having a website makes it a lot easier to share affiliate links, but there are definitely some wonderful alternatives!

5 Places you can share affiliate links

1. A Facebook community

One of my favorite things about having a Facebook group is that you literally have a community of people who are gathered together because they're interested in the same topic. Groups can take some work to grow, and it isn't an overnight process, but it's well worth the effort in the long run!

A community with the right dynamic can be intensely loyal and fun to hang out in, as well as profitable!

2. Email newsletter

Email marketing is my favorite ways to share affiliate links, and it's one of the easiest (aka laziest!) ways to make money on autopilot from work you do once. We'll talk more about the nuts-and-bolts of that in a later module of this course.

3. A guest blog post

Some bloggers don't allow guest bloggers to share affiliate links, while others don't mind at all as long as you're providing a lot of value in your post for their readers.

4. A free resource

Making a free resource (like a checklist) is a great way to make product recommendations! Offer the checklist as a reason to signup for your email newsletter, which gives you a way to stay in touch with people who are interested in what you talk about!

5. List websites

I like using Kit.com to share resources relevant to different articles I've written. You can share your link with friends, family, or other people who ask you about a topic. Of course, do this in a genuinely helpful way, don't be a spammer who just sends stuff people aren't already interested in - that's gross.


I hope you enjoyed this list, I would love to hear your thoughts if you have any other good ideas!
