How can I make money online without a blog or website? Have you ever asked yourself this question? I am willing to bet that you have. It is a question that most people ask when starting out online. And the reason for this is that creating a website or blog is something that the vast majority of online beginners find difficult.
You may be one of these people.
If you are, you will be well pleased to discover that the reality is there are several ways to make money online without a website or blog.
In this article we will look at 3 proven methods that thousands of internet marketers are successfully using right now. For any of these methods to work, you will need to join an affiliate program at Clickbank or any other affiliate network so that you can promote other people’s products.
With that said, let us get started!
The easiest way to make money online without a website or blog is by doing article marketing. With this strategy, all you have to do is write 700 to 800 word articles that provide helpful information on a popular topic.
You can then include your affiliate links at the end of each article so that people who want to learn more can visit the product sales page.
Once your articles are ready, you can distribute them to article directories where people can find them and read them. The wonderful thing about article directories is that it is not only people who want to find solutions for themselves that will read your articles.
People who want to find solutions for other people will also read your articles. So people like blog owners, ezine (newsletter) publishers and website owners may find your articles, like what you have to say and publish them for their audience to read. If that happens, your exposure can dramatically increase.
With your affiliate link at the end of each article you write, some people will click through to the product sales page and buy. When that happens, YOU will get paid.

Remember, the key is to write articles that provide useful but incomplete information. This way, your readers will want to know more but will only be able to do so if they buy the product you are promoting.Video Marketing
The second way to make money online without a website or blog is through video marketing. It is a really powerful way to market products and services because you can communicate with people the way they are accustomed to communicating. They can see and hear you.
This makes using video a marketing method you ignore at your own peril. It is as easy as creating a short video and uploading it to you tube. The video can follow the same concept we talked about under article marketing. That is, you can make the information useful but incomplete.
Then at the end of the video, you can refer people to the sales page of the affiliate product you are promoting. Even better, you can refer them to a free report that gives them enough information to persuade them that the product you are promoting has the answers they seek.
If you do not think this method works, think again. It is a well known fact that one of the best ways to promote or sell a product is through a product demonstration. Few techniques sell a product better than simply showing people how it works.
And video makes this super easy. If you get permission from the product owner, you can give a brief demonstration of how a part of a product works. For example if you are promoting a membership site, you can show people how to use software provided in that membership via a video demonstration.
Now, you may think making videos is difficult. I once thought the same thing because I thought I had to make super complex Hollywood style videos. But that is not the case.
You can start off with a simple video that you make by simply using a PowerPoint presentation. You can then upload the presentation to YouTube. Or you can use software like Camtasia to show your prospects how to perform a certain task.
Have you ever seen one of those presentations where someone is showing you how to do something and you can see the website they are viewing and what they are clicking on? They probably used Camtasia. It’s a very smart and effective method.Writing Short Reports
This is one of my favourites. You can write short informative reports and sell them on Amazon and eBay.
All you need to do is find a topic that you know something about AND that would help people solve a problem they are seeking solutions to.
But what if you feel you do not know enough about anything and cannot write a short report? Well, the truth is you probably do know enough about something and can write a short 20 page report.
I heard of a lady who was complaining that she could not write an ebook because she did not know much about anything. Looking after her old parents took all her time.
Well, guess what she was an expert at? Looking after elderly people! She had firsthand experience and could provide very practical helpful information. EVERYONE knows something about something.
Having said that, you can write short reports on things you have researched. Even if you do not know anything about a subject, you can do research on it and write a report that would save others the pain of doing their own research.
If you do not have time to research or do not fancy doing it, you could also hire someone else to write the report for you. At the end of the day you would have a report of your own that you could use to make money online without a blog or website.
Places like the Warrior Forum and Elance are full of people who are ready, willing and able to write high quality short reports for you, at a reasonable price of course.
So there you go!
You can start using any of these 3 methods to make money online without a website or blog. They are tried and tested and will work for you IF you work at them consistently. Better still you can combine all three of them to compound the effectiveness of your marketing.
Later on when you are ready, you can also add a website or blog to your online business. Since you would already be getting traffic through your videos, articles and short reports, you could simply redirect that traffic to your own website or blog!
But for a start, these methods will work well for you in and of themselves.
