Operational Website

Before you apply to any affiliate network, even if you are primarily interested in email marketing, you will want to have an operational website that looks professional and has some basic content on it.

Finding a topic or service to get started in is often a difficult task. I find it's always best to start with what interests you or what you are most knowledgeable about. However, what you are most knowledgeable in might not be your passion or vice versa. My advice is do the thing that most excites you. If you need knowledge, go and find it by reading books or online articles. Learn as much as you can so you can become an expert.

Most affiliate companies will automatically decline your application if you have pages that are "under construction" so you will want to delete or hide pages (remove them from your navigation menu) until they are completed.

If you do not know how to create a website, that’s ok. First you will need to select a hosting company.

When someone types in the web address you select for your website (example: mywebsite.com), your hosting company responds by showing your website to the visitor.

All of the files (information) needed to display your webpages are stored on the computer of your hosting company. Thanks to your hosting company, visitors will be able to access your website 24/7 - 365 days a year.

You can expect to pay a monthly fee of around $8-$12 for your website to be hosted. If you are not an experienced web designer, a company like Yahoo or iPowerWeb can get you started with excellent tools that make web design a breeze.


Web Design

When I started out I was computer savvy but I knew nothing about HTML or how to create a webpage. Lucky for me, most hosting companies offer free tools that do most of the work for you.

If you can use Microsoft Word, you will have no problem creating a webpage using one of these free site builder tools. You will be able to get up and going within a matter of a few hours. Just make sure that the web hosting company you decide to go with has a free site builder.

On A Budget?

If you don't have a web site and you are starting out on a tight budget you can get some free web space from one of these companies:

Tripod.com
Fortunecity.com
FreeHomePages.com
