Can You Make Money Affiliate Marketing Without A Website?

People sometimes ask me, “David, can you can make money affiliate marketing without a website?”

It’s usually asked by someone who feels intimidated by the idea of creating a blog and writing blog posts. And my answer comes in two parts…

  • Yes, you can make money affiliate marketing without a website, but…
  • Okay, if you really want to skip building a website, here’s what to do…

Can You Make Money Affiliate Marketing Without A Website? Yes, But…

Yes, it’s possible to earn affiliate commissions without building your own website. But if you don’t want to build a site because you think it’s difficult to do, think again.

A few years ago, building your own affiliate marketing website was a pain in the proverbial. You needed to know how to use HTML or CSS and laborious build page after page.

Easy Website Creation With WordPress

Then WordPress came along and made life easier for bloggers. Today, anybody can build a beautiful website very quickly and without any technical know-how.

So, if you’re reading this because you think it’s difficult to build a blog, check out this video I made. In it I show you how to set up a blog from scratch in less than 90 seconds:


You too can set up a free WordPress blog in 90 seconds or less with Wealthy Affiliate. And you can do it just as easily as I did in the video.

Actually, they give you TWO free wordpress blogs, so hop over to Wealthy Affiliate and find out just how easy it is to set up your own website nowadays. It’s completely free, so there’s no risk involved at all. 🙂

Easy Content Creation With Real Specific

Or, if it’s content creation that bothers you, I’ve discovered a tool called “Real Specific” that can help you.

Use Real Specific to generate a ton of content for your blog without having to write everything from scratch. (I do recommend, however, that you go over every blog post, edit it and add some of your own content.)

Okay, But Can You Make Money Affiliate Marketing Without A Website?

Well, yes you can, and here’s how.

What if I told you that you can make money through affiliate marketing with just a Trafficwave autoresponder subscription?

No website to build, and no other web tech involved, no kidding!

If you want to build a simple but effective internet system without any frills, this will interest you.

Let’s Cut To The Chase… How’s It Done?

OK, this may sound too simple, but really, all you need to do is join Trafficwave – you can test it out free for 30 days to see if it works.

The rest of the magic happens in the Trafficwave back-office. A little later, we’ll discuss why you need this particular autoresponder.

Make Money Affiliate Marketing Without A Website – Thanks To Trafficwave

The actual process involves creating a simple web presence without having to go through the normal website building process. That means you don’t have to buy a domain and pay for hosting.

Also, you don’t have to create elaborate content or worry about SEO and ranking in SERPs.

Using a series of independent landing pages created in the Trafficwave back-office, you present your affiliate offers. All you have to do is promote those pages just as you would promote a real website.

List Building Is The Key To Affiliate Marketing (With Or) Without A Website

The major part of your business is list building. Essentially, your whole operation is centered around building a list then monetizing the list in one of many ways.

When marketing experts tell you about the value of a list, this is what they’re talking about. And many Internet marketing gurus owe their success to this simple business model.

A few recommended list monetization options include:

– Selling solo ads
– Negotiating lucrative JV partnerships
– Promoting your own affiliate links or products

Why The Trafficwave Affiliate Program, In Particular?

While the basic functions of autoresponders are largely similar, their value to internet marketers
differs significantly.

Trafficwave is unique because it was specifically created by an internet marketer, for internet marketers.

In particular, Trafficwave takes care of the biggest problem many ordinary internet marketer’s face: budgetary constraint. Trafficwave has a fixed monthly charge of just $17.95 which doesn’t increase as your list grows.

In addition, here are more reasons why Trafficwave is ideal for this business model.

  • It has the best compensation plan in the industry. Even if you choose to promote Trafficwave
    itself, you can easily build up to a full-time residual affiliate income.


  • Coupled with the low price-point, you have an affiliate product that’s easy to sell online.


  • Trafficwave is loaded with the tools you’ll need to make things work smoothly and at no extra
    cost. It includes a lead capture page builder and unlimited hosting. It also includes a link
    shortener and tracker. If you want to promote Trafficwave, there are a series of follow-up emails that Trafficwave gives you. In short you can use Trafficwave to promote Trafficwave and you’re good to go – without a website!


  • Perhaps the most important differentiating factor is Trafficwave’s co-registered leads program. You can purchase targeted leads through Trafficwave’s in-house service and have Trafficwave import your leads straight into your list for as little as 35 cents per lead.


  • Trafficwave also runs a monthly recruiting co-op. In addition, Trafficwave members such as Didi Wargo run co-ops for their downline members. Didi’s Team Atlantis Rising Trafficwave promotion co-op also gives you branded squeeze pages to promote your business.


The Steps To Earning Affiliate Commissions With Trafficwave

Here are the exact steps you can take to start earning affiliate commissions without a website, using this Trafficwave model:

  1. Join Trafficwave FREE for the first 30 days.
  2. Set up an autoresponder in your Trafficwave back office.
  3. Now import Trafficwave’s done-for-you campaign email series.
  4. Use Trafficwave’s Hosted Capture Page service to create a lead-capture page.
  5. Once everything is set up, order some Co-Registered Leads to begin building your list.

Those five steps alone will get you up and running with a business that operates almost completely on autopilot, and without a website.

In addition, if you join through my affiliate link you will be in Didi Wargo’s downline. That will get you free access to all the Team Atlantis resources. I explain how Team Atlantis Works elsewhere on this blog.

Once Set, The Engine Keeps Running And Earning

The main advantage of building an online business without a website is that it allows you to focus on promoting. Without the pressure of having to create relevant content, it is easy to focus on advertising and list building. 

True, it will take a bit of time to get a perfect set of lead pages and ads. You’ll go through the process of building Trafficwave landing pages, testing, tweaking and testing again.

However, once you find your winners, you’re set for some time. That means, you put in the work and then enjoy the benefits well into the future.

Get off to an even faster start with one of my low cost traffic packages.

So, Can You Make Money Affiliate Marketing Without A Website?

Yes, you definitely can. How much will depend on a lot of things. The first step is to join the Trafficwave autoresponder service which is the main part of the business model. Remember, you can try it completely free for the first 30 days. After that, you can keep using it for a low fixed fee of just $17.95 per month – no matter how big your list of subscribers grows.

First, yes, but it’s easier than ever to create a stunning website and use Real Specific to fill it with relevant, traffic-pulling content.

Second, okay, if you still want to skip the website thing, you can do that simply by using the tools offered by Trafficwave to get started.

    • Hi Andrew,

      Thank you for posting your comment. The community at Wealthy Affiliate is very supportive and there are a lot of expert bloggers who actively participate in the forum there.

      I don’t have any experience of the site your friend recommended. Do they have a free membership option so you can get a feel for what’s on offer on the inside?

      On that note, you can join Wealthy Affiliate as a free member and take their introductory business blogging course and affiliate bootcamp course and get 7 days of 1 on 1 coaching to try it out.

      I suggest you join both sites as a free member and see which one works best for you.

      All the best,

      David Hurley
